American Idol 5

Anyone going to be watching this? It will be interesting to see if it's as good as past seasons or whether the same old, same old will be dull.

It starts tonight at 8EST I think, and it's on tomorrow as well.

I really love the beginning episodes. I kind of start to lose interest after that

Yeah - when there is a possibility of someone making a compelte arse of themselves it rocks. When it gets to the point where all the talentless freaks are weeded out all the fun of mocking the contestants is gone.

Isn't that the point of reality TV? To mock and laugh at? I have to wonder if some of these people have a single true friend in the world. Didn't anyone say anything to these people?

I know! I mean I hope my family or friends would have the balls to tell me I sucked instead of giving false hoping and making a fool out of myself.

I like the beginning and the end. I could skip the middle.

^I agree....the beginning is exciting and the end is exciting and intense....the middle part grows tiresome and boring! They need to fix that!

I like it at the end when it is the final two

The suspense is intense

Me too, I'm glad this thread was posted .


I used to like the beginning a lot more before I realized that a lot of the really terrible singers know they are terrible, and are just doing it to get on TV.

But it's still good watching the train wreck .

and it's two hours tonight

I cannot WAIT!

American Idol: So bad, it's great!

Is it wrong that sometimes I have a tiny crush on Simon?

...the screaming jumping guy made it through?

Now that's just mean. Paula is being awful by letting him through.
And Simon was really mean to that guy he told to shave and wear a dress. My jaw dropped at that.

Can't wait for tomorrow!

Simon continually acted like a prick tonight. It's as if he thinks the ridiculous amount of money Fox is paying him gives him clearance to be an asshole to these people, to point and make fun of them like a schoolyard bully, to rip them to shreds and stomp on their spirit.

Paula must be getting a handsome paycheck herself if she's willing to sit next to the man year in and year out.

I think that's what they DO pay him for, actually.

He often goes too far. But a simple "appalling" from him is often spot on the mark.

I just find it fascinating that so many people turn out for auditions and just have no self-awareness of how they actually sound. Have they NOT been watching the show for the past 4 years?

Some of the people who get turned down have a decent voice in there and could maybe benefit from some vocal training, or just sing, rather than trying to embellish with 635 extra notes.

But some of them ... seriously, how do they not know how bad they are?
