American Idol - Season 7

I can't believe it's time for this again! Every season since season 3, i keep saying i'm done with this show, but it always sucks me back in! The trainwreck factor is just too strong i guess!

I wonder how wasted Paula will be this season?
Who will be the William Hung or Bush Baby of this season?
What scandalous item from a contestant's past will get him booted this season?
How many times will Randy say "Dawg" this season?

Here we go!!!!

On a side note, Taylor Hicks was dropped from his record label this week. Sorry, i can't help but laugh at that one. Worst winner EVER!

Not just Taylor Hicks, but Ruben Studdard has been dropped too.

And yes, Hicks was/is a sham who set a record for 'fastest sell-out ever'. Less than a week after winning AI, he gave his song to a Ford commercial. Let's be fair - it may well have been part of his AI contract to do that, but either way it's awful. If was part of his AI contract, then there is something completely and utterly wrong about the way AI approaches the music industry(and of course, there is), and if it wasn't part of his AI contract, then he was the fastest sellout ever.

They have no control over their songs for I think the first 5 years(if they last that long)...

Yeah, Ford is a huge sponsor of the show. You can't accuse him of selling out for that. He had no control over it.

I hear they're focusing less on the celeb guest "mentors" this year, which is a good thing.

I suspected as much.

Still, the fact that AI automatically puts its winner's song in a commercial right away is just awful.

I expect that kind of stuff from AI though. It's all about the $$$!

I actually liked Ruben when he was on the show, but unfortunately his appeal is limited. The only winners who will ever do well is the ones that can be easily plugged into Pop/Rock or Country. I'm at the point where I don't even care who wins anymore. I just wanna be up on all the craziness that everyone's talking about.

For the record, I still love Taylor Hicks. I was sad when the Ford commercial stopped airing, I enjoy every bit of Taylor that comes my way. He is the only idol whose album I've bought, and if he releases another album, I'll be all over that.



Anyhoo, looking forward to another season!

Well, i guess i will come clean and admit to buying Clay Aiken's album. I remember thinking what an amazing voice he had. I still think he's great, but his sound is just a bit too cheesy for me. He does Christmas albums very well though.

I didn't know that about Taylor, or Ruben Studdard. Blake Lewis released his CD recently, I wonder how it's doing.
