So I watched American Idol last night and thought it was boring as hell. J-Lo is not that annoying and I want to have beers with Steven Tyler but overall they are pretty bland as judges, IMO. And Randy is, well, Randy (dawg). All the contestant are extremely talented and I'm pulling for either Casey or James but something about these contestants just bore me? I boldly informed Annie that I am done with Idol this season. I miss Simon and his creative way of insulting people.
After deciding to ditch the show I talked to a few friends today and they all disagreed with me. Even my father thinks this is the best season yet and doesn't miss Simon at all. Facebook and Twitter were even in a good mood about Idol?
Then I heard that the ratings are up 29% over last season?
Am I missing something here? Is all this training frying my musical sensibilities? Mark, can you help me out?
How does everyone else feel about Idol so far? Should we all ditch it?
