Americal Idol?

For those of you who have been reading my blog from the time I started it, you know that I have not mentioned American Idol much this season. Because I’m just not feelin’ it, y’all.  Heck, I sometimes don’t even watch the DVR of it until Friday or Saturday.  Gasp. The judges seem to be all over the place.  Be original and take risks.  Don’t change the song too much.  You picked the worst song.  You aren’t feeling it.  You are too old-fashioned.  I don’t know who you are as an artist. **News flash**   NEITHER DO THEY.  THAT’S WHY THEY ARE HERE! Blah, blah, blah. I’m pretty sure that I will finish out this season with Simon Cowell and then call it quits with American Idol. I do think there are some talented folks on the show but I would never say they are better than the ones in the past.  I mean, Carrie Underwood, Danny Gokey, Chris Daughtry, Clay Aiken?  Hello. Here are my thoughts in case you because you care: Crystal Bowersox – Pretty amazing.   I could listen to her on my back porch.  She does need to get a new hairdo, though.  What? Casey James – He’s a little dreamy, but that could be because he’s from the great state of Texas.  I like his style.  Great guitarist. Siobhan Magnus – She can sing, but I’m not a big fan.  In the words of Randy Jackson, “It was just a’ight, dawg.” Lee DeWyze – We haven’t even seen how awesome he will be.  I really think he’ll go far like Daughtry.  Great voice. Michael Lynche – I just like him.  And I think I might like a hug from him.  Because I’m tall and few people can lift me off the ground, but I bet he could.  I think his voice is spot on.  Very pure.  Don’t know if he’ll win, but he’s great. Aaron Kelly – Great voice, but that’s about it for me.  Bless his heart. Tim Urban – He’s gone now, but man oh man is he adorable.  His smile is precious and his teeth are white.  I think he has a nice voice and is incredibly likable, but isn’t a star. So, what do you think about this season?

  1. Crystal is the best musician on the show. Has a “defining moment” almost every show. She up to the level as former big winners. I agree about the dreds… they should go.

  2. Yep. Crystal is the best, but her hair is awful. She should just wear it straight and natural. It detracts from her voice a little. I liked Alex Lambert, and now he’s gone. He was cool.

  3. G’mornin friend,
    well we aren’t really watching AI at all this season. probably all sorts of reasons but my Hannah, she does love that Tim from Texas. She is hoping to meet him someday as she has been reassured that really amazing good guys that are young exist!

  4. It’s not my favorite season either. My favs are Crystal and Lee –

    I think Crystal will win it though – dreads and all! 😉 btw, Eric is growing his hair out again and several spots in his head are automatically dreading on their own… 🙂

  5. TOTALLY disappointed this season as well. I think Crystal will probably win it. But there are no WOW people if ya ask me. And the judges are vascillating so much that those poor kids probably don’t know up from down. I hate it for them.

    We haven’t watched it with the same “hurry up and get to the tv” feeling we did last year or years gone by. So I’m not sure of Idol’s future in our house either.


    I hate reality TV. It’s harsh and lotsa ugliness and drama. I ain’t into drama, a’ight dawg?

    I love hearing great voices with great stage presence though. I love Chris Daughtry and Carrie Underwood. Mandissa, egh.. she has a great voice, but… she screams too much on the high notes. I don’t like that! Sounds like someone’s killing her.

    Now, for today… I don’t have a TV anymore. I haven’t had a working TV in my house for 4 yrs now. I only catch TV in public places where it’s displayed.

    I think people get too wrapped up into media like TV and movies.

    If we put 1/2 as much effort into our relationships with God wow what an awesome human race we’d be, dontcha think?

    Just my 2 cents worth!

  7. I’m with ya…I’m watching it but not that excited or interested. Crystal will/should win, Lee will go far in the music industry and Mike will find his niche and probably make a living. But other than that…not feelin’ it at all. Not sure if I’ll follow A.I. after this season…just have to wait and see. But I have missed your critiques this season!! 🙂

  8. Love Crystal … she is our fav. Lee has lots of potential.

    That little Tim should be on Starstruck 2 on Disney Channel or something. He can sing at least as good as that guy.

    And Big Mike … nice guy but I can seriously not listen to another ballad from him. Just sayin’.

    At the end of the day though … I’m through after this season as well. I don’t anticipate it … really just get excited about watching Glee after. Oh well.
