OK, I’ll admit it. American Idol is one of my guilty pleasures and I’ll tell you why. The judges, plain and simple. Randy, who reviews music with the finely tuned ear of a deaf mute, Paula, who thinks she is judging America’s Next Top Model, and Simon, the only decent judge of talent on the show. But, what drives me nuts is the live studio audience who boos every freakin’ time something bad is said about the contestants.
The audience must get queued to boo every time, because how can that many people be duped into thinking half the crap sung on that stage is actually good? Oh right, the sheep thing.
Next year, ditch the crowd and add Michael Jackson to the show for that extra level of crazy, I hear he needs the money.
