Every year I say I'm not going to watch. I say I don't want to see it and I don't care. But then I cave and find myself watching the first ep. It's definitely an illness.
I don't really pay too much attention to the early people because they come and go so quickly. Plus, I get attached and then its painful when they are cut. There were a couple of people who stood out, but I refuse to acknowledge them until we at least get to Hollywood week.
Although, I did notice and remember the chick who lives in a tent in the woods with her boyfriend, cause they were talking about her inspiring story and my husband said: "What is inspiring about living in a tent? That just makes you a loser." She seemed pretty laid back, but then I guess you have to be to live in a tent. My idea of camping is leaving the windows open at the Ritz Carlton. There is absolutely no way on earth I could live in a tent. Or even sleep outside for one night.
Anyway, back to Idol. There did seem to be less making fun of people who suck, which is probably a good thing, cause that was getting old.
Besides, I'll be here to make fun of people without their help.
