Paula: I Idol-Eyes You

2/11/2009 12:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The most ridiculous thing about Paula Abdul on "American Idol" last night wasn't that metal contraption she called a necklace -- it was when she decided to give a standing ovation to the one guy who couldn't see it.

Yes that necklace was hideous and ridiculous, but did anyone else notice that when she walked into the separate rooms to tell people whether they made it or not, they kept shooting her from weird angles. It looked like she was using a cane or needed to lean on something to stand. Anyone else notice? I haven't been following the show in the event it is known she sprained her ankle or something.

The necklace was awful, I could have made her a much nicer one from my garage shoppe tools, and the guy she was applauding wasn't that good at all....there is ton's more talent than he has.

Standing ovations are not meant for the artist to see it. It is an emotional response.

Why would you expect her discriminate against people with sight issues. I guess if your blinde you can nerver get a standing ovation.

She gave others standing ovations, should she treat him any different. Other people told him about it, and it made him happy. Get a life TMZ

Oh Get over it TMZ stop making Paula look bad you also forgot to mention that right after she did that they showed the blind guy saying how he just found out paula stood up and started clapping for him and how he felt so amazing because of that!

oh come on...are people supposed to alter every little thing they do because he's blind?? Most people with disabilities wanted to be treated like everyone else, and that means acting naturally. Not constantly modifying your behavior.

Ya really have to give up on people doing things that the blind guy can't see. It's only natural to respond in a way you normally would..standing ovations and high-fives. It doesn't make them any more foolish than it makes you to bring it up.

um TMZ... Just because he can't see does't mean he doesn't deserve a standing ovation. Stevie Wonder get's standing ovations... That guy was so proud and happy when they told him she gave him the standing ovation. So stop picking on every little thing.. you are basically discriminating against blind people, saying they aren't worthy enough of a standing ovation.
