Well everyone knows what time of year it is again. It is that wonderful season of idiots trying to sing, and this year it is starting off more pathetic than ever. I will admit that I never watch American Idol all the way through. It really bores me once they get down to the America votes part. So this year I sit back and laugh at these people, if for no other reason than to say to them… “What the Hell are you thinking?” They cannot, as reasonable people think that they come close to the type of person that the judges are looking for. Simon Cowell will always say┬áhe want’s something “New” and “Fresh” but that is a load of BS. He wants the same pop star every year, cookie cutter, marketing material.

So these poor saps show up in the thousands to try out. Simply record yourself on a piece of junk tape recorder, listen to it back, and compare it to any past winner. I am hard pressed to think these people honestly, in their heart of hearts, believe they have a shot.

If you dont have the sterotypical “Hollywood” look, sure you may need makeup, but still have the base… why do you do this. Some for the attention sure, the William Hung wannabes maybe? But alot of these people must be that bad off that they want to believe they are something they are not. And everyone of them has some really sad person pushing this friend or family member into the whole mess.

Either way, it is hiliarious, I guess no matter how bad I feel for them, we will all still laugh at them over and over. If they keep going to the try-outs, we will keep watching them, once it gets narrowed down to the best ones they find in a season, it stops being entertaining and starts to be about selling the records and putting someone on the charts. That, to me, is the most boring part.
