can we talk for a moment about American Idol? I love this show. i always have. i love everything about it. i love the audition round. the Hollywood round. the finals. i love the judges. hell, i even love Ryan Seacrest.
i enjoy seeing who gets through during the auditions and picking early favorites…like FidelbinJesus. and Sundance Head. and backup singer (Melinda?) and the Indian “donny and marie” duo.
i enjoy making fun of the wannabes. Topher squawking his way through footloose. and Janita and her handful of boobs. and Hairdresser Hicks. and the geeky line buddies. and Shakira 2.0
but people like Robert Holmes. remember him? the black dude who thinks he’s elvis.Ã‚Â and Nicholas?Ã‚Â the one who sang unchained melody? and Mischa something or other? the one with the boobs that hung to the floor? these people are seriously disturbed mentally. There is something wrong with them…i mean other than the fact that they can’t sing and are auditioning for a singing show. i mean, with these guys, it’s beyond delusion. and i feel bad. like i just want to put them out of their misery.
i understand that it makes good tv. it’s funny! but i’m embarrassed for these people. and for American Idol for completely exploiting them.
