American Idol S7

Thursday, January 24th, 2008

What a way to break my unannounced hiatus, start with what my first ever post was about.

Actually I just felt like mentioning this — Is it just me or are they really focusing less and less on the actual talent? Well, that isn’t to say that the winners aren’t good, it’s just that the things that happen in between the first audition and the announcing of the winner seems too…

For instance. I was watching the audition a few days ago, and saw how this one guy came in wearing what I can only describe as an amazon costume. Paula tells him he can come back after he’s removed the hair on his chest, because it was distracting her. Well, I do get that the judges need a break, but sometimes it feels like they’re deliberately shifting our attention to other things other than the talent.

I still think that American Idol is the single reality show that has the potential to last forever (or at least, till the end of human kind), but I hope it isn’t for the wrong reasons.
