American Idol

I said I wasn't going to watch it.  "It just won't be the same without Simon", I said "and I'm not a fan of Jennifer Lopez".

Okay, my hub said, we'll just flip over for a moment to see what it's like.

Um, I'm hooked...again.

First of all, I love the auditions.  The background stories on some are inspiring, and the ones who can't sing but think they can, well, it's sad for some but a good dose of reality for most.

Best of all, the judges get along, which is nice.  It's a kinder, gentler Idol.  I didn't think I would like Steven Tyler but he's very sweet and honest, and so in Jennifer Lopez.  She's very connected to people the way Paula was.  And Randy just seems to be having a much better time with this group.

And as usual, the talent is amazing.  There is a lot of young (15 and 16 year old) talent this year.

It's my fourth day of lower caffeine intake and I'm still upright!  Happy Friday!
