What I never realized until last night is what an educational show American Idol is. First off, J.Lo really does know how to speak Spanish–she taught LaKisha how to say “conga.” Second, apparently Latinos have one thing in common—love of the color red.
Everywhere I looked, I SAW RED. Li-trally. I mean, don’t get me wrong. I always suspected that Latinos were fiery and spicy. TV ads for salsa, the Sharks from West Side Story, and Charo all gave me clues. But now I know for certain.
I also learned last night that it’s okay to yell out “Ay! Ay! Ay!” like Blight Lewis did after he sang, to express his Latin-tinged excitement. I had NO IDEA that Blight was part-Latino. ¡Ay Caramba! ¡Muy caliente!
Since I, too, have always loved the color red, that settles it. I’ve made my decision.
