A couple of weekends ago, I held sway at two quite different events. I was one of three judges responsible for choosing the 2008 Queer Idol as part of the Pride events and I was one of three judges responsible for choosing which father played the part of Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus well enough to win two tickets to see the teen diva in concert in Provo. The HM contest was put on by 103.3 KISS FM and emceed by my pal Hooker—with help from Chadillac and Lucky Tha DJ—the station's drive-time DJ. What was so fun for me is that Hooker played the Simon to my Paula for the Queer Idol judging as well. Along with Pride organizer Kris Jenkins playing Randy, we spent Thursday night at Hannah's for the preliminaries and Saturday evening for the finals, watching some of Boise's best belt their little hearts out and dashing their little dreams. Hooker's Simon was spot on, Kris' clearly channeled the big dawg producer and my Paula elicited a few "Is she really that drunk?" comments from the crowd. Congrats to Jared Michael for winning Queer Idol '08 and the father/daughter team pictured below for winning the HM/MC competition.
