American Idol Judge "Mystified" by Dream Date with Condi

US reports:

Former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice thinks Randy Jackson is top dawg!

When the classically trained pianist, 54, was in L.A. for her March 24 appearance on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, she arranged to meet the American Idol judge, 52, for a private sit-down at the Beverly Wilshire hotel.

Rice's spokesman tells the new issue of Us Weekly: "She's a longtime admirer of Randy and enjoyed the opportunity to meet him in person and talk about their common passion for music."

When Jackson (who’s been married since 1995) learned Rice wanted to meet him, "he was sort of mystified," a source tells Us, "but he went."

And they had plenty to talk about during their 90-minute meeting.

Says an insider, "She found him to be absolutely intriguing."

Ha ha! Pony Pals know, though, that the real reason for the dinner with Jackson is that Condi is a weirdly-obsessive American Idol fan. Wow, I'm getting dizzy just trying the imagine the banality of their dinner conversation. Do you think Condi wants to do a guest thing on AI? How great would that be?

I don't watch the show, but I know who Jackson is. Who's the guy in the dream bubble?

Well, she is a dawg, after all.

And I second Matty's request--who's the guy in the bubble? I would've thought it would be Chimpy.

OH DUH--I clicked your helpful link. She IS weirdly obsessed.

Maybe she's testing the waters for a shot on her own - Brahms on the piano is all very well, but what if she's been hiding a set of SusanBoylische pipes all these years? I bet she could tear "Rocking the Casbah" to pieces!

I didn't know they allowed war criminals on "American Idol."

I think Condi and Susan Boyle should go on the road as a duo called, "The Never Been Kissed Sisters."

Oh, those Common Passions.

p.s. That eternal description of Dr. F as the Classically Trained Pianist gives me visions. Sit, Condi, SIT!
