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. ;)
