Neil Patrick Pleases Scores of Women (Only on American Idol)

Does an on-air mini battle between Neil Patrick Harris and Simon Cowell qualify as an entertainment news segment? Yup!

Last night Harris played guest judge on American Idol, greasing the gay seat for Ellen DeGeneres‘ arrival. And NPH dared disagree with The Simon about certain auditioners’ singing talents. Quelle horreur!

But most darling was his chat with Ryan Seacrest, where Mr. Harris reveals he’s every gay boy’s dream: a yes man. (Okay, we lied, the most darling part was Harris’ review of the Barney & Friends chick.)
