not so American Idol-y this year

i tried to watch the audition shows and couldn't stand them, so i thought i'd jump in for hollywood week. hollywood, bleah. on to the top 24 shows. i recorded and watched both, with lavish use of the fast-forward features, to hear the singing with as little of the talky-talky as could be arranged. i may gradually get into it as the herd thins, but i'm not watching avidly at this point. it's unlikely that i'll write about what's happening on the show as much this year as i have in previous seasons (to the great relief of humankind, i'm sure!).

i'll give you a prediction right now, though: female winner. i'll even go so far as to predict two girls competing at the end. i noticed that there were twice as many girls as boys in the hollywood round, so it makes sense that the girls' group had singers who did so much better than the boys this week - twice as many candidates were narrowed down to their final twelve, compared to the boys' final twelve. i don't like that artificial balancing of numbers, btw; the only reason to do it is to have an excuse to have two performance shows each week, but hey, it's their show, and they can sell as much advertising as companies will buy!

i'm looking forward to So You Think You Can Dance, though. nigel is da british bomb. ;)

The girls are awesome this year, far better than any other season methinks. I've got it pegged down to two girls as well, and I bet they're the same two as yours :-)

The guys are pitiful right now, but they tend to catch up over the last few weeks so you never know. Well, all except the beatboxer dude. He can just quit AI right now and go get a record done, I'd totally buy it.

Don't give up! It's gonna be okay!

Nope - not the only one. Although I don't watch American Idol, I *love* So You Think You Can Dance.

I even had my son's girlfriend taping episodes for me last season and tried to get tickets for the live tour to take my 9-year-old daughter. (I was incredibly disappointed that they sold out so quickly - I was even willing to drive to Minnesota or anywhere else within 5 hours drive or so!)

i was SO happy when benji won last year. it's funny how attached i can get to these people i will never meet! the live show would interest me much more than an American Idol live show, too - i'm in so much awe of people who can dance that well, and i liked the music they chose for their performances much better than the songs and choreography the AI kids had to do.
