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!

I admit to having been amused a time or two by the bad auditions. But I can only watch for about 10 minutes before I get sick of it. If it were a show full of fairly talented people I'd probably watch it more.

I've only ever committed to a full season of AI once. And I can't even remember who the winner was that season. So you see how into this show I am. But my fave show on XM recaps it every week, and I'd like to know who they are talking about. So I think I might try to watch it this year.

Help me. I don't have any friends and live only through the web. I hate going out, people are always staring at me. I think they work for the government...They might be reading this right now. Does anyone know any grocery delivery service that I can use? I don't want to go out anymore....

Oh, I thought you meant that he replied to this in your text. Well he is hot hot hot! And it was so funny how Paula was trying to be so modest about how fine he is. She said something like "You're easy on the eyes." I guess she learned her lesson about messing with the youngins. ...In any case, I don't usual watch these pre-shows with the ridiculous acts like you said but I have to agree that this guy was a stand out. Peace homes...
