Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

If you missed American Idol tonight, well, let's just say you missed a hell of a lot. We'll have a full recap in the morning, but for now, we just had to give massive props to the one and only Magic Cyclops, the Mile High City's most prized export, who has officially achieved God-like status. That weasel Seacrest refers to our dear Cyclops as a party pooper. More like turd in the punchbowl there, sport. To wit, this is probably Magic's most subversive moment to date since showing up incognito at Rockbar on election night in 2008 as a "trucker for McCain." American Idol? Pffth! This is an American Icon, ladies and gentlemen. Magic Cyclops FTW!

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
