It's American Idol night!!

I am not ashamed. I am an avid American Idol fan. It's entertaining. It's funny. It's sad. It's mysterious. It's adventurous. It's a non-stop thrill ride. Okay, maybe it's not all of those things, but it still helps pass Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. Tuesdays are always interesting, since it's the night that finalists perform. They always have a theme--like country, or Stevie Wonder or the 60's. This week's though, is a bit weak. The theme is "Music from the 21st century". That's lame. It's just too generic. That could be any style of music. So, it could be anything. I don't know. Last week was a 50's theme, which was good and bad. Most were just cheesy imitations of the original. But Chris Daughtry (my favorite by far) did a rendition of Johnny Cash's "I Walk the Line", which was amazing. Apparently it was modeled more after Live's current version of it, but either way, I dug it. I hope he lives up to his reputation this week, because I would love to see him win. There was a southern belle that won last year (Carrie Underwood), and there's been an R&B Luther Vandross-esque guy (Ruben Studdard) and everyone knows Kelly Clarkson. I'd just like to see someone with a little rock and authentic style win for a change. No more of this pop crap. I just hope the majority of voters feel the way that I do, since I don't actually vote. (See, I'm not that insane...plus, once we tried and couldn't get through and gave up)

I'm not dedicated enough to go to the official American Idol website and start a fan blog there, so this is where I'm doing it. If you were expecting something wittier or more interesting, I guess you came to the wrong place and lost minutes of your life that you can't get back. Sorry about that. That's the gamble you take with my blog.
