The first time I've watched American Idol this season
It's not an obsession for me, but I do enjoy an episode of American Idol here and there. For me, the most watchable episodes are early on, when multiple clueless people bumble their way through their auditions.
I can't help but wonder though. . . how do these people think they are good enough?
Actually, I have a friend, Erin, who recently had someone she knows make it to the LA round of American Idol. She has some inside scoop on the way the show runs.
Basically, Simon and the other judges don't see everyone. People first have to make it through producers, who then pass them onto the television judges. Of course, to get to the "second round," you either have to be really good. . . or really bad. So they understand that the early rounds are really about entertainment, not yet about talent.
Sometimes when I watch this show, I wonder how I would do. But I really have no desire to do it, regardless of how I would do. . . I'd rather just play in a band and try to make music the old fashioned, non-produced way.

the funniest thing i've saw on idol this season (which i barely watch) was that some girl with a really disgusting over tan and dark dark eyeliner came in with i think it was like a mini skirt and short shirt and sang like mickey mouse or something with a really high voice but weird
and then simon asked to see her mom and her mom looked the same but bigger in size :)

Even though my all time favorite American Idol (William Hung) didn't make it too far, I have high hopes for Crazy Dave! Talk about entertaining...
