The Next American Idol

Ok, so the new season of American Idol is upon us and every season the same questions pops into my head..."Where in the hell do these people come from?"

It amazes me every year that there are people out that are so completely disillusioned by their own talent, or lack there of. Do they post audition listings in psychiatric wards and homes for the mentally ill? And do these places offer day passes for them to audition?

Some of them sound like screeching owls or worse. Once they're told they didn't make it to Hollywood, they come sulking out to Ryan Seacrest and a group of friends and family who are simply completely shocked that their loved one is not going to be America's favorite pop star. Have this people ever heard them sing? or better yet have they ever heard anyone else sing? It kills me that people that love them would allow them to make a fool of themselves in front of an entire nation. I am pretty sure my family would snap me back into reality, if I were to attempt something that I clearly have no business doing.

Let's be honest though, without these clueless individuals what would American Idol be, it wouldn't be any fun to watch people week after week who were without flaws. The show wouldn't be the hit it is. So, that is why ever Tuesday and Wednesday night at 8:00 pm eastern standard time you will find Heath and I curled up on the sofa laughing at these people and cheering for those we love.

What can I say...It's our guilty pleasure!!!
