Gettin' Jiggy With Gentle

Norman Gentle, a.k.a., Nick Mitchell, rehearses for a series of upcoming live gigs with band members and producers of his first single "Bitch Slap!" DNA, a.k.a. Ayhan Sahin and Dennis DelGaudio.The "family-friendly" "American Idol" send-off to Simon Cowell, "Brit Slap!" is available on, while both versions, "Brit" and the "explicit" "Bitch" are being hawked on iTunes.

So much great shit is going on as his song gains traction... "Bitch Slap" got its first spin this week on WEBZ (B97)/New Orleans! Meanwhile, Norman and DNA filmed a hilarious video in support of ASPCA on Monday, appeared on Fox News in Hartford, Conn., Tuesday morning, followed by five radio phoners Wednesday. He also participated in an interactive online chat today with The Seattle Times.

In addition, Yahoo! Music writer Lyndsey Parker devoted her column today to Gentle, writing that the "truly anti-climactic Season 9 finale (of 'American Idol') could use some comic relief. So it's the always amazing Norman Gentle to the rescue to give 'Idol' fans some much-needed laughs." (Boy, that's an understatement: "Idol" needs to give it up. Zzzzz!)
