Just turn on American Idol.
That should be their tag line. Because ya'll, my eyes leak when I watch that show. Sometimes it's from the raw, pure emotion in the songs they contestants sing, or seeing someone be handed a shot at their life long dream, a chance to see their hard work pay off, sometimes it's because they are just that God awful Ha!
I have an on again off again relationship with American Idol. I refused to watched the first season. Absolutely REFUSED! I didn't like their cookie-cutter make-a-pop-star-outta-you plan. I respected people who wrote and sang their own music. Second season, I watched the auditions because they were funny, and was sucked in. I was obsessive about it. I watched the 3rd season and was left less than excited. I didn't watch the 4th, 5th, or 6th season. I started with good intentions, but when it really gets going I come into the time of year in which I get really busy. I finally sat down and watched the 7th season and 3/4 of the 8th, missed the 9th, and now I am attempting to watch the 10th season. Even though I swore I would not.
Paula was gone. SHE was the entertainment. What kookie, drug induced thing was she going to say next? Then, they got Kara and I HATED her. She was a bitch. But there was always Simon. Simon was the "it" guy. He created the show. He had left. Randy was the only original judge left, and J-lo and Steven Tyler were on. Now, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE me some Steven Tyler, but I was still not impressed.
Can I tell ya'll? Bee and I are REALLY enjoying this season so far. We're still in the auditions, but I think it's going to be a great season :)
These two auditions made me cry :) Enjoy them!
PS- One last thing, I am asking Prayers for my 11month old niece. She's in the hospital and has been apparently for the last 4 days with a 102 degree fever and the doctors don't know what's wrong with her. Thanks!
