When you need a good cry..

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!

Praying for your's so hard when babies are sick! :(
I hear you about Kara! She BUGGED me, and I was so glad that she wasn't going to be on this year. That being said, I can't get in to it this year. I've watched it religiously since the 2nd season, but Dave HATES it. I'm hoping to find something that we can watch together. So fun that Mike watches it with you! :)
