They needed someone age-appropriate to sing "(I Am) Sixteen Going on Seventeen" for a medley. That bitch Amanda Seyfried is just too long in the tooth now to pull it off.
Is she singing Friday, by Rebecca Black?
Such mean little white faggots.
I will be escorted by my dear grandfather, er, I mean, my husband to this event. And as someone who has only been on this earth for 27 years, can I say, my youthful form trembles with excitement!
I guess they didn't see her sing at The Tonys.
There's GOT... to be... CLOWNNNNSS!
God, of all the tired DL jokes....
There is no question about CZJ's age outside of DataLounge.
Is she doing Snow White?
Exactly, r8. She was one of the orphans in the original London cast of ANNIE (1979), and did a revival of 42nd Street - with all sorts of press about the 19 year old star. She knows it would be futile to lie about her age, as it is for anyone who started their career as a child.
Didn't the Anne Hathaway/James Franco disaster teach the Oscar producers that pandering to the 18 - 34 demographic is a wasted effort? The Academy Awards need to feature distinguished stars like Meryl and Sally, not 29 year old sluts who'd be more at home on the Teen Choice Awards.

What's your problem, toots?
What is this "Rob Lowe Snow White opening" of which you speak? I shall surely have to get on the internets to see what you refer to, given that I understand it happened years before I fell from heaven.
Hey CZJ, Barbra is singing at the Oscars. You might want to sit this one out.
What's a CZJ?
"I Was Rob Lowe's Snow White": The Untold Story of Oscar's Nightmare Opening:
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
