DJ Kandrew's Editors explore the apparent sex appeal of hipster rap.

on Jun 20, 2011

Yo, yo, yo the rap episode has arrived. You know you've been waiting to hear the contestants' floetry (particularly Melissa's), and this episode certainly didn't disappoint. Also it appears that John Mayer's cousin (aka Johnny) is going to be a force to be reckoned with this season. Maybe it's just the power of love...

Hottest New Dress

Damn, Jewel! Our hostess/judge wasn't joking around this week when she whipped out that little black frock. Everyone's jaw hit the ground the moment she entered the room. In fact she was met with such raucous applause that she had to say, "Stop, enough about me." But clearly that was one of those "Oh stop (but actually keep going)" moments. Work it, girl!

No. 1 Question

Why didn't they introduce Rodney Jerkins as Darkchild? I was kind of hoping he'd walk in to the intro of Say My Name (you know the part where it goes Dark-cha-na-na, say my name, say my name?). Oh well. But that's one seriously intimidating guest judge. Johnny phrased it best: "He's the ish. Now there's a real danger of coming off like a douche tool."
