American "Ignorance is Bliss" Idol

The new season of American Idol is already looking promising. I remember being at this stage in the show last year and thinking it didn't feel as exciting as previous seasons.

There are always rumors that some of the contestants have secretly been groomed and planted among the contestants by Simon. Frankly, I don't care if Simon's been hiding contestants in his attic ala Anne Frank. If I'm being entertained, that's all that really matters, isn't it?

It's a spoof on "American Idol" with Hugh Grant playing Simon. Omar is hysterical.

On mornings like this, I want whatever special Italian espresso Lina is having.

As for American Idol, I am completely on the same page with you. :) The Josiah kid is gone, which is probably good - I think he needs to get a psych exam asap. I haven't picked anyone to dislike or champion yet this season - the possibilities are endless! :)

Anonymous - I haven't seen it, yet. I'll queue it in NetFlix.

Old Horsetail - Well, yeah!

Solo Poesie - Good morning!! Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Jen - Yeah, I think Josiah and Kieth (the politician guy) would have been targets for the "Vote for the Worst" assholes, even though they were both talented guys. I really wanted Keith to make it. Maybe next year.

For this year, I'm all about the Australian guy. Yeah, I know it's AMERICAN Idol, but the Irish chick and the Australian guy are my favorites so far. Oh, and I like the nanny chick, too. And... and...and.... Yes, lots of possibilities.

Talent should rule. I used to watch American Idol but I can no longer stomach the catty Brit. Perhaps I could write some shareware for this problem: SimonSilencer 1.0?

Laurie said...

Comfort Addict - They've shown mofe of Simon's nice side this year.

Grimm said...

I second the Simon Silencer. Although I thought it was pretty cool how he defended the Keith.

BTW, there are 3 David's in the competition. We rule!

Laurie said...

Grimm - Simon was uncharacteristically nice during the auditions. He's back to his old self now, though.
