I just finished reading Robbie’s spot-on review of last night’s American Idol. And it got me all fired up and angry again about this horrible Idol season, as I alluded to earlier. It didn’t help that as I was reading it, I was also talking about the horrible show to a former work colleague back in Washington, DC who is a fellow Idol-maniac.
But this year is just painful. It doesn’t help that I thought this year’s final crop — especially the guys — held the most promise. But as the field of contestant thins, the lack of vocal talent becomes more apparent. It has gotten so bad that I thought Taylor Hicks’ had the best vocals last night. And he drives me crazy because he is either retarded, spastic or both.
As for Ace…. dude, cut the hair. You look like a girl now and that ain’t “smoldering.”
Even my favorites Kelly Pickler and Chris Daughtry were not at the top of their game last night. I still think Chris is the one to beat, but his increasing move to head-banging has begun to grate on me.
My advice for you fellow Idol fans experiencing bleeding from your ears this year….. turn to the USA Network on Tuesdays at 10pm after the amateurs at FOX are done trying to pretend they can sing.
