Cee-Lo Green (Should Be) Your Next <em>American Idol</em>

Jan 24th, 2008 // 7 Comments

Many people watching American Idol last night seemed to have the same revelation about contestant Jeffery Lampkin simultaneously; to quote reader StuntKockSteeev, that Mr. Lampkin “answers the age old question: just how would Cee-Lo act if he was possessed by the spirit of Luther Vandross.” (Good looking out on the Luther part of the equation.) Hence we can only hope that if Mr. Lampkin wins the evil Idol braintrust will allow him to make a video as batshit insane as this one. You know he’s got in him. [YouTube]

    Thank you for reminding me of the godhead of this video. Cee-Lo had the best segment of “MTV Cribs” ever, too, even better than Missy Elliott’s which I thought would never be topped. I think he had a whole room just for feather boas.

    @Matt Cibula: Even better than Redman’s?

    I saw Cee-Lo open for Hoobastank at my school. It was. . . an odd pairing.

    Ahh, Cee-Lo, oh when oh when will you bless us with another solo/Gnarls Barkley/Goodie Mob album? (And whatever happened to that collaboration with Jazze Pha? That’s only been in the can for what, 3 years now?)

    My two favorite videos of all time. This one and QOTSA’s “Go With The Flow”…oh how cool I thought that video was and still do.

    Cee-lo ain’t no sexual eruption.

    The demise of the original bridge, which interpolated the “Hawaii 5-0″ theme song is one of the great tragedies in sample clearance history.

    Even Khujo Goodie could two-step to that shit.
