I don't necessarily mind watching it a little at the beginning of the season, when all the wierdos are out, or at the end when there are three or four contestants remaining... but the line must be drawn somewhere. angry


Ohh I touched a nerve! grin


Somebody posted it on Facebook and I looked because of the Genesis connection. I thought it was sadly amusing. grin

It's the cringeworthy performances combined with the audience, like trained seals fanatically cheering at everything, that drives me out of the room.

My wife watches it too.
At least you've been nice enough to sit with your wife to watch some of it.

For me, it's an immediate excuse to retreat to the man-cave.

The one thing worse than that, in my opinion, is the manufactured sentimentality attached. "Boohoo, my mother's cousin Marvin passed away from pancreatic cancer last month and it was his life's dream that I become a famous singer." Everybody cries, Seacrest swoons like he's delivering his own eulogy, and we're supposed to care about this twit who can't hold a note. rolleyes

It's marital give-and-take. If I watch an hour or two of American Idol every week, she's required to allow me my football and my action movies and sitting through The Godfather and The Terminator every couple of months. smiley

Everything you guys say about American Idol is so true, and so funny. 'Trained Seals' lol Truly scary....like the Susan Boyle clip of when she was first on her reality show. *shudders*

I saw the judges comments to the guy who did the MAMA song as I was flipping the channels. They obviously felt really bad for the kid, he pouted and said 'But I'm really angry inside, I wanted to do an angry song' (or something like that) ...to which he got more sad looks, then he added in tears with Seacrest urging him on to speak...'the only time I smile is when I think I have to'

* his tears flow*

Everyone looks super concerned.... then that perky 'closing for next thing stupid noise/music' comes on, and so does the show...exit kid stage left.


Brutal. grin

And how about those pinheads who get criticism from the judges and then say, "It doesn't matter, I had a good time singing it." Then get of the frikken stage and go sing in your basement, ya daft, silly git!

Truth be told, in past seasons I've sometimes watched because there's usually at least one cute girl in high heels and short skirts. This year... that toothy girl at the piano just doesn't do it for me. smiley

The MAMA guy is the only one I've seen so far...and I really wanted to see how annoying the new judges were. Pretty annoying, 'cept Keith Urban is cute.

It seems the time on the forum is out of sync with the time here - does that mean Daylight Saving Time has started in the US?

Rachel McAdams dies early in the second Robert Downey Jr. Sherlock Holmes movie and is replaced as the female lead by Noomi Rapace from the original Dragon Tattoo. Not at all a suitable substitution.

My apologies to Sistermoon if this resembles one of her posts. wink grin
