I am a closet American Idol junkie.Oooops, I guess I’m outing myself!
Yes, friends, I watch American Idol. Â I don’t know why I like it, I just do. Â I usually skim the audition shows and really don’t get into it until the top 12, but once the season really gets started I am all about it.Â
Â I am a TIVO fanatic – can’t stand wasting time on commercials and if something bores me I just skim over it. Â Tonight I fast forwarded through most of the final decisions on season 8 contestants. Â
The overdone drama is seriously annoying. Â The whole, “we are so sorry, this is so hard to say, you’ve had ups and downs and you know how you did. Â Keep in mind that this is really a hard decision for us …… (cue suspense music and nail biting)…. so, sorry but … but…. WELCOME TO SEASON 8!!!”
Over and over and over this same annoying set-up.
At least I’m loyal enough to fast forward through it and not just delete it. Â
I don’t really get attached to anyone this early in the season and rarely remember anyone’s name. Â There are always some characters that annoy the poop out of me but this season there is one chick that, when they told her she was going through, I actually felt like I might vomit in my mouth a bit. Â That girl, Tatiana Deltoro? Â (I apologize if I’ve misspelled her name.) Â She is kind of like an overly hyper puppy that might piddle at your feet any moment. Â Her wacky laugh makes me think of the sound a mile long train putting it’s breaks on at 150 mph might make. Â She isn’t a horrible singer but to be honest, I was so distracted by her quirkiness that I can’t really think of what my opinion on her singing is! Â
Lordy, you have to wonder if someone shouldn’t have shown her the video from the first auditions. Â You’d think some kind soul would have pulled her aside and mentioned that she might want to take a valium before her next appearance on national television. Â
I always feel a little bad for the people they trash on the show but I feel extremely uncomfortable about this girl. Â For her sake, I hope the handlers/coaches/style folks on the show can give this girl a little advice. Â If I were one of the coaches on that show I’d beg to be assigned to Tatiana. Â Someone save that girl from the shameful mockery! Â I am anxious to see how she does….
Out yourself AI junkies! Â I’ll still respect you in the morning!
