American Idol, the king of Reality TV
Thursday, January 17, 2008
Did anyone watch American Idol the last two nights? I have to admit I'm a reality TV junky, but who can blame me since the writer strike there isn't anything else to watch. You know, the first two nights of the tryouts are usually entertaining, but 3 weeks of it gets a little boring. Simon sure seemed to be a little nicer, or maybe they just didn't show us all the mean stuff this time. The best one was the last guy last night wearing the pimp outfit. His singing wasn't good, the song sucked but Paula cracked me up with her dancing. I giggled about it all night long. I'm just ready for them to get through all the auditions and pick the top 12 people so we can watch them really perform.
Did anyone see the little nerdy politician guy for Oklahoma State University? He was kind of a cross between Clay Aiken and Kevin (chicken little) from last year. He wants to be the next president of the United States or the govener of Oklahoma. I was thinking to myself that this guy is going to bomb. But, I was really suprised, he actually could sing. Now he might end up like Sanjaya. If you remember Sanjaya sounded pretty good in the auditions and then it turned into complete torture during the competition.
It will be interesting to see what kind of group they end up with this year. I'll be watching!
