Camera Man Stomped By 'American Idol' Gymnast (VIDEO)

by Hilary Rothing, posted Jan 27th 2011 12:30AM
Earning a place of honor next to "the woman who walks into a mall fountain while texting" is this painfully classic moment from the 'American Idol' Milwaukee auditions.

The vocals aren't the only thing that can go horribly wrong at an 'Idol' audition. This dedicated camera man thought he'd snag a cool shot of a waiting contestant's acrobatics but instead got stomped in the gut. At least wait until you get in front of the judges to crash and burn. Ouch!

'American Idol' airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8PM ET on Fox

speaking of American Idol, does anyone else find it more than a bit ironic that Steven Tyler is judging dancers when he himself can't dance a step?

I'm writing about family shields censoring a copy of "US Today" showing Eldon John with his new baby. Who is financing the gay marriage movement and why. History; the woman's movement was financed by the Rockefeller foundation for 4 reasons. 1. to break up the family home, dividing and conquering a cohesive family united against the storm of social mandates, 2. to increase the tax base with women working, 3. to pay women less for the same work, and 4. to indoctrinate our children in preschools at an earlier age. This resulted in families becoming poorer by having to buy a second car, pay for preschool, pay for business attire and essentials for working women, spending more money on take out, and increased the sale of flowers, candy, perfume and jewelery to make up for the lack of connection between "Husband and Wife." Albert Switzer; "Think occasionally of the things you spare yourself the sight of." Could "this" thing be hopelessness? Are we all being served a PTSD meal? In our stupor are we becoming more compliant? What is the Gay movement really all about?

Wow!! That cameraman has got to get the dumbass of the year award. What made him think that kid wasn't going to land on him. Could have put the camera on the floor by itself. Dope.

the dumb jerk who pounced on the cameraman doesnt even say he's sorry ? his
first thought is not to check and see if the cameraman is all right? American Idol
attracts the worst kind of selfish thoughtless egomaniacs.

Blizzard you are the moron, Steven is so talented and handsome. Have you ever even listened to even one of his albums ? I guess being the most successful rock band ever isn't good enough ?? The gymnast should have been slapped, after he laughed.
