I am officially over American Idol. I used to live for this show, but I think I started losing my joy in watching it starting with Season five when my favorite Chris Doughtry came in fourth place. Granted he’s gone on to become one of the most sucessful contestants, but it still nagged the hell out of me. And then season six, call me crazy but I actually liked Sanjaya. Sure he was a trainwreck, but he was entertaining. He kept me amused. After he was voted off, my interest began to dim. I decided to watch this season, because I like watching from the beginning to see if there’s anyone I’d like to cheer for. No one really caught my attention, and the bad auditions didn’t amuse me, but they sure as hell annoyed me. The thing that used to be great about the bad auditions were for the most part the people really believed they had talent and then found out otherwise. Now, it’s a bunch of people who know they suck but only want their 15 minutes of fame. I guess I’ll continue watching this season, but I think its may be the last season I actively watch.
I must admit, I haven’t been as interested in Idol this year. I did catch it last week, but ended up annoyed because they said no to some decent singers and yes to very average crooners.
