Still loving him on here even my dh is watching it with me this year because of the judge changes.
American Idol 2011 - Page 2
ah, crap. I missed it tonight. Oh, well. I like the auditions, but get more into it once they are actually in Hollywood. What's nuts is that it's the 10th season. I remember being pregnant with my first baby when it was first on and Kelly Clarkson won. I realize how long ago that was when contestants are all, "I've been watching the show since I was 7, and it's always been my dream to be on Idol" and they are like 16 years old.
I was also pregnant with my 1st when Kelly Clarkson won, lol.
I haven't watched the show in years, probably not since the 3rd or 4th season. I did watch the other night to see the new judges, and I really liked them. Much better in fact.
I'll be watching this season.
I'm disappointed that they didn't show more of the people singing. Like they never showed Emily Ann after that first day, and Molly the White House intern. And then some of the people who made it through were never shown at all. I like the personal stories, but I wish they showed a greater variety of the contestants.
yep, still watching! I was annoyed with last week- way too many ballads, and while competently sung, nothing that would make me excited or want to vote! This week with Motown was a bit better. I do like the judges, but the show is sorely missing Simon's frank and honest reviews (and to me, hilarious insults). Hearing what he had to say was one of my favorite parts of the show for me!
So many of them are great and unique singers! I'm so glad to see them being mentored by actual music producers instead of the likes of Miley Cyrus. With the experience, it almost seems like where they place is irrelevant- any of them could be a success in the music industry and now already have contacts and experience.
Watching American Idol is bonding time for our family. My husband and I plus our 2 kids - 10 and 5 year olds, have our own faves! This group is such a talented bunch...sad to see Thia and Naima go last week. I miss Simon's in-your-face remarks, but I like the way Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler have their own ways of delivering their comments in such a positive and constructive light.
