American Idol Update


I haven't written about American Idol much, I don't actually watch it real time, instead I go to Youtube and watch as much of the performances as I want throughout the days after the show. Anyways, here's my take so far:

Overall it has been an uninspiring season compared to seasons past. The final five contestants are all talented, however they are a bit dull to me. There is a sort of equality between the contestants, unlike other seasons when it came down to the last five, however, no one has done anything very remarkable. There seem to be no risk-takers in this bunch. They all appear to be playing it safe.

Last night was "Neil Diamond" night. Again, nothing too impressive. I think the show is wearing the various theme nights and celebrity mentor thing a bit thin, perhaps that's part of the problem at this point in the show's run.

My favorite so far is Brooke White. She's a good singer, writes songs, and plays piano. Who will win? That's a different story. I am thinking my least favorite finalist, David Archuleta, may well win. That would stink.
Update 5/1: Brooke got kicked off last night! Lame.

Profoundly important stuff, right?

Who gives a rip? Never watched the show and never intend to. Let’s face it, many of us are too old for this kind of Hollywood garbage. Still favor "Father Knows Best," “Andy Griffith” and "Ozzie and Harriet" and “My Three Sons.”

Man Woody, you're hard on my show!

Out of curiosity, what does "Hollywood Garbage" mean? Could you mean it is unrealistic? Good thing such a claim can't be made of the shows you listed! :)

She got robbed.

The shows I mentioned are the ones the entire family could watch. My right-wing definition of Hollywood Garbage would be, “heartless heretics, having a heritage of hideous, humiliating, hysterical, high-minded hollow-hominoids.

Yes, Brooke got robbed! I don’t think she would have won the competition in the long run anyway, but Jason should have been the one to go this week. Of course, Brooke and Syesha are most definitely the “cutest” of the bunch -- but David Cook is pretty impressive IMHO. He always makes his song choices unique and “fresh” sounding, even when performing boring Neil Diamond tunes! Who’s idea was the Neil Diamond theme anyway? He ought to be fired!!!

I think Cook is my favorite now. I just wish the dudes were a bit more manly. It's kind of sad that Cook is the most masculine one left.
