Truth be told, I have been thinking about this post since Tuesday night after the top 12 guys performed but I finally had time and courage to write it tonight. My friend Becky is to be blamed for all of this! She got me into it in the first place! (Check out her American Idol post at http://avellafamily.blogspot.com/). I have not always been a fan. In fact, during the first few seasons I viewed the show with a certain amount of disdain. I did not understand the schedule (What? It's on three days in a row?) and when I did manage to watch it was always the results show which is absolutely no fun if you haven't seen the performances. I also thought it was way too cheesy. As Simon would say, "It was all a bit cabaret" for my taste. During my "I'm too good for American Idol" phase, Becky would tell me how fun and entertaining the show was but to no avail. Then I got Tivo and everything changed. I became an American Idol devotee overnight. But I was still "too good" to vote until last season. I liked Blake Lewis, the Seattle beatboxer, so much that I voted for him almost every week!
There should be an AA group for this.
Hello, my name is Jennifer and I voted on American Idol.
So, are there any other secret American Idol lovers out there? It's time to come out! And it's time for me to watch some Tivo!
Oh, I almost forgot! These are the contestants I like so far. Hopefully they weren't voted off tonight!
What can I say? Totally adorable and WOW what a voice!
This girl was a great entertainer! She was so fun in a "like totally to the max" 1980's sort of way.
She is so sweet and has a beautiful voice but someone needs to tell her not to dance. Or move at all for that matter. Just sing.
I think he's the best guy so far but a tad overconfident.He was such a natural and just seemed like a sweet, mellow guy. I really liked his performance.
Too cute for words (like a little puppy) and waaaaaay talented.
I should probably put their names on here but I'm too lazy!
I still don't like the results show. Talk about cheesy! Blech.
