So, yeah, one of the Jonas brothers was at the W Hotel in Victory Park yesterday guest-judging American Idol's Dallas final auditions. Can't recall which one -- Joe, maybe? Nick? Gummo? Tito? Doesn't matter. But this, er, news (?) has me significantly more interested: Reports E!, Neil Patrick Harris "is sitting at the judges table today for the Dallas auditions, a Fox rep confirmed to us." I should go by, say hi. See if he remembers that magical afternoon we spent together in Austin a couple of years ago.
