OK, OK, We made it through the Guys! YUK!

OK, I haven't posted because I really don't know what to say. I know they're not usually all that good right at the beginning but at least there's someone you can look at and see they're going to be a heart trob! A Constantine, an Ace , heck even Clay had that twinkle in his eye. They keep telling us this is going to be the best Idol yet and I'm looking at theses guys that sang last night and wondering what in the heck were they thinking.

The young kid from Seattle, Sanjaya, now why would he let his sister pick his song choice? She got booted off the show. I remember the auditions in Seattle she sang this mechanical thing that sounded like she was singing something someone else picked out for her. She wasn't connected to the music at all. Then he sang a totally different kind of song. He had confidence, the song had spark. It sounded like that was his kind of song. So he gets to THE most important night of his life and lets his sister pick that sappy song.....give me a break! I want to like you (I like to root for the underdog and he's the youngest) but you're making it hard.

Sundance, not much better. Actually, I think Sundance was probably worse, much worse, well how about, the worst. I haven't liked him since the auditions (but there I have to say I agreed with the judges, I thought he had promise). I don't know if it's nerves or what, but baby you suck! The promise was empty and still coming out your nose! It's sad to see somebody with that kind of talent falling on his face.......need I say more. If you need more input than this check out phillyburbs He's a bit mean to them but I think he's right on about their talent so far.

Other than that, nobody really struck me one way or the other. So I'm back to the premise of my first post, why am I still sitting here watching this and will the girls be any better. Let's hope so or I may spend my time here at the computer instead of on the TV

No One Is Sicker of Tryouts on American Idol Than Me!

After I don’t remember how many night of sitting in front of the television watching this year’s new season of American Idol I can’t help but wonder what in the world was I thinking? Now I know that there are blogs out there already like PhillyBurbs who are already predicting who the top 24 will be..............But PLEEEEEEZE, I haven’t even gotten over the hurling because of the tryouts.

How much of America is going to forgive them for that horrible crap they called entertainment? While it may have been a tad amusing the first year, by now it is nothing but very old, boring and predictable. The only reason our household watched at all was to get a glimpse of who the talent would be. Since I’m terrible with names I thought maybe I’d get a jump on it but starting out at the beginning but that’s a joke. When they finally do let us see someone with talent my poor brain is so numbed out by the wailings and blubbering of the tone deaf, oblivious throngs that get in front of the camera that it can’t even process a name.

I swear the powers that be at Idol better be careful, if they try to force feed us another year of this tryout crap and it continues to focus on the no-talents, I think they are cutting their own throats. Maybe the die-hard Idol groupies will tolerate this outlandish behavior but the rest of America is not so tolerant. We want to see an honest attempt to find some talent or forget it. We’re not dumb enough to believe that in those thousands of Idol wantabes that show up to audition at each city there are that many gross people trying out and only a handful of good ones. We know you’re sending some good ones home before they ever get to sing for the judges because you think it’s more entertaining to see the goofballs. With the choices you’ve been making the odds are you’ve left the REAL Idol standing out the street so what’s the point of watching, anyway.
