No Hollywood for you
American Idol has gotten ridiculous these past couple of weeks. I love this show and do not miss it, but the early stage of the audition process is beginning to torture my mind. In past seasons they would not only show the terribly untalented people who just want 10 minutes on television at everyone's expense, but they actually would show the talented folks who want a real shot. This season's episodes have focused ad nauseum on the untalented unfunny acts - Their story, their background, their goals - who cares! They are neither funny nor fun to watch; it's quite annoying to see and hear a lot of these people, and from the looks of it Simon Cowell feels the same way I do. How about when all three judges tell the auditioned "no" as in no to Hollywood and he or she feels compelled to plead his/her case by continuing to sing (horribly) or yell, curse, cry, etc. Hello they just told you no now take your 5 minutes of fame with your over-the-top antics and leave!
