Alright, I've gotta admit that I've never really been into the American Idol thing. I tuned in for the very first time for the last episode just because that's all that I was hearing about EVERYWHERE. I was expecting to be blown away, but instead got a decent yet vanilla singer and a black Ronald McDonald having a "sing off" for the GRAND PRIZE RECORD CONTRACT.

Anyway, I was flipping through the channels tonight in desperate hopes of finding something, ANYTHING other than RAW to watch. What do I see but the crazy American Idol kids lighting up the TV again. This time it was the losers of the contest out there acting like they were pop superstars, gracelessly crooning some of the most generic pop tunes I've heard in a long, long time. I honestly just don't get what all the hype is about.

Sorry to vent....

The hype is that YOU could be a star! YES, YOU! YOU!!! Fuck working your ass off when you can get on TV and become a star after a few insults from the British guy and working out how much Abdul's face cost! See that girl/guy? SHE'S JUST LIKE ME! I COULD BE A SINGING SENSATION TOO!!!!!

That's it, pretty much.

That was the "Las Vegas special", featuring everyone who ever had a prayer to win the competition. I saw a bit of it, and it was indeed cheesier than a cheese factory in Cheeseville. I don't think anyone is going to deny that the show is often ridiculously corny, and that they are going to shamelessly milk it for absolutely every cent it's worth. But, if you fancy yourself an amateur talent scout, it was interesting to follow along and see who put in good performances with what material, who you thought deserved to win, and whether they actually would. And Tamyra and Kelly are both extremely talented. That said, I tend to doubt the show will be a long term thing. Hell, I was addicted to AI1, but I'm not planning to watch any of AI2 after the always-hilarious "first cuts" episode (unless they suck me in again...)

You see this? You see how my body's glowing like that? Yeah... a lot of people can't do that. Come get some of this glowing. Oh, okay, you. You want some. You want some of the glowing. Look, man... your soul... I'm going to totally floss with it and chew on your spirit. I read that somewhere. But I'll do it.

I was hooked on AI as well - mainly because I thought I recognized Nikki from a strip club in Dallas - and last night's show was miserable to watch. I can't imagine buying tickets to hear the 20 wannabe's sing "Up With People" style covers of oldies. I look forward to Kelly's CD because I like her voice and personality. I think she will be even better once her contract with 19 Entertainment (Simon's Company)expires.

And like Tom Dean - I don't plan on watching AI2 but I am sure that due to the wife, I will probably get sucked in again.

According to one of the tabloids I get to read at work, you DID recognize Nikki from a strip club.

"HHH, you should probably do the job here to put RVD over for the good of the company." "Vince, I'm just a caveman! I was out hunting when I fell in some ice and was unfrozen by your scientists. Your future world frightens and confuses me. You say these words like "job" and "put over" and "good of the company" but my primative mind can't grasp these concepts!"---Vince Mcmahon/Unfrozen Caveman Wrestler, Dr. Unlikely 17.9.02
