Are You Ready?

Are you ready Idol fans? Tonight is the night we've all been waiting for! It's the two hour Premier of American Idol!!!! Chee Hoo!

No, I don't watch much TV but Idol is one of the few shows I do watch. Crazy isn't it? Why do I watch it? Well, the early shows give me some really good laughs as people strut their stuff in front of the judges. I love how excited they get when they are looked upon with favor by the panel of judges and get moved on to the next round.

I love a lot of different kinds of music and I really enjoy watching young, talented artists. They can be singing, dancing, acting....doesn't matter to me. I just enjoy their enthusiasm and true love for what they are doing.

I will admit that I cringe when the judges are so brutally honest with some of the contestants, but seriously, if you are so bad that you really can't carry a tune...then you know it and you are just looking to get your face on TV screens across the country. Take what the judges give you and move on people.

As the season progresses, like most other fans, I find my favorites. I also find a few that the judges seem to love that just irritate the hell out of me. Like little Miss Sunshine, Brooke White from Season 7. Oh my word, was she ever annoying with her fake smile and her "Thank you for the criticism, I still love you" attitude. UGH!

Even though there are a number of contestants that I have really liked, this is the first time I have ever owned a CD by one of them. I asked for and received an Adam Lambert CD for Christmas. In my opinion, Adam was probably the most all around talented artist ever to appear on the show....I play that CD over and over again. It's that good.

So, here is to another great season of American Idol. Enjoy Idol fans! Enjoy!

I have not seen a single showing...

It appears I am missing something worth watching?

My name is Tameka and I am an Idol addict. Crowd says, "Hello Tameka" in rote tone.

I've never gotten into Idol, but it sure generates a LOT of interest! Now that Ellen is replacing Paula and Simon will be leaving, I wonder if it won't change the tenor of the show. I've never bought an album of an Idol winner but yesterday, I bought Susan Boyle's album--it's really good!

Can you believe I've never ever seen a single episode of this show?

I have to join the ranks of those who don't watch this or other shows! :D

So I guess I'll have to visit YouTube and see if Adam is worth buying a CD over. :D

Dancing With the Stars is my tv addiction. Can't afford another one. And I think at times DWTS and Idol overlap.

Enjoy the season. It's Simon's last!

LOL! I'll be there. We sort of fell into watching Idol 2 years ago and don't hate me but we loved Brooke...we knew she really shouldn't win but we have to admit we were soft on her....and of course who couldn't love Adam? I'm still in shock he didn't win...but of course in the end he sort of did....I'll be thinking of you later ;-) it's SOOOO addicting...

I've seen bits and pieces of Idol over the years, but I really don't watch the show. Simon never did appeal to me.

I am trying to cut down on my tv this year. So far I have gone cold turkey on The Bachelor and AI is next. I will not drop Survivor or Project Runway though. But, if my TIVO just so happens to record AI- I will not be mad :)

I love Idol!!! Have it on DVR...What is wrong with me but I love Simon!!

Angela said...

Ok, so my Tivo remembered from last year and recorded it for me. I wasn't going to watch but I turned it on for just a few minutes...I ended up watching the whole thing and now I am hooked again for this year :)
