So, um, anybody watch Idol?

I kinda liked the 16-yr-old crack baby. Other than that, nobody was memorable except that kid at the end with the terrible voice who they made cry. His dad wanted a hockey player but ended up with a kid who loves to sing (terribly).

Of course I watched, I love me some IDOL.

I loved the crack-girl too. She was the only one that I truly rooted for.

I feel a tinge of guilt about it...but I love to watch people who can't sing complain when they're told they can't, and don't make it to "Hollywood" ...and cry.

His dad ended up with a sissy. Maybe even a retard, from what I saw.

I watched a bit - liked the crack baby, mostly thought the rest of it was boring. This is my least favorite part of the show, because they just drag this shit out and it's no longer funny to see just how badly people sing.

Jewel looked great, but what the hell was she doing there?

I don't think I'll ever tire of seeing these hapless auditions. It's amazing people still come out to be humiliated...though maybe the extra time spent on the first girl (the Jewel imitator) was a little rough. It brought my little son to the verge of tears.

And Paula looked f'ed up. Again.

American Idols shows the dangers of what can happen when friends and parents arent honest
"I know you love to sing but your voice isnt up to a pop standard" How hard is that sentence, if they really love to sing theyll understand and keep going and possibly make it big regardless...
Also the world is unfair but if youre goofy looking or big and cant sing (or sing OK) they will show you on AI and laugh at you

I only caught like 10 minutes, luckily the part that everyone has been talking about...

Am I the only one who thought the crack baby was below par? She seemed to just be shouting... and sure, that shows a lot of heart, but its a little bit grating. Everyone loves an underdog I suppose. And I guess she did show some unreached potential, but she wasn't that good.

Words cannot express how cool this sentence is.
