    OT: American Idol



    I've never actually sat down and watched the show because, well, I hate reality TV.

    The question is why don't they just go ahead and give it to the guy from the South? Heck Alabama alone has two winners, a runner-up, and the guy from Memphis is the front-runner this year according to my wife.

    Yuck. I don't like to watch tv because that's where American Idol is.

    But there *is* an OT forum around here somewhere, which is where you will find this thread after one of the Mod.s moves it.

    In my opinion, American Idol is so five years ago.
    It's a new season! It's a new day!

    My 9 year old daughter loves it. She is obsessed with Carrie Underwood who won two years ago and she loves watching it when they get down to the final twelve.

    Eh . . . . we have no life after football is over (and I consider it over) so whatcha gonna do?

    the "favorite" from these rounds usually never wins.

    audition versus the show seems to be a big jump. I'm pretty sure anyone who saw Taylor Hicks' audition last year probably figured him to be an early exit guy at best...

    Can you guys please keep Simon Cowell in the US or just chuck him in a big hole somewhere in Utah or Arizona or somewhere like that? Seriously he'd be an excellent export to stay permanently out of this country and I'd be so happy if I never had to put up with Pop Idol or the X-Factor or all that crap ever again.

    Amen, Right on, You go!!! Can anyone tell me why they would watch such GARBAGE? Has there been ANYONE emerge from this show who has done anything of ANY redeeming value?... i.e. written or sang a song that you would want to hear? Are we, the public going to continue to allow this Drivel driven show to steal the soul of MUSIC?
    The record companies already dictate to us what we listen to!... And now, we are going to let Simon Cowbell change the direction of our listening habits?
    ALL reality programming is , first, not reality, and second extremely BAD, and an indication of how SAD our society has become, but to allow this unmitigated CRAP to invade the sanctity of the GREATEST art form known to humankind , is unconsionable!! To me, it's just embarrassing!!!
    When you think about it.... would Van Morrison ever have made it out of the first round? ... had he not been known? Think about it, HELL NO! because he's too creative, too real, ... That's just 1 example, but the list would go and on. Just disgraceful!!!

    One of those cats just this year got a Golden Globe and an Oscar nomination (Hudson, I think, is her name) for supporting actress in 'Dreamgirls'.

    I'm not saying it's worthy tv, and I agree with you 100% that the great performers/singers/musicians of the '60s & '70s would never be able to emerge from in a show like this. Van Morrison, Tom Scholtz, Mark Knopfler, Tom Petty, Steve Perry, they are just not good looking enough to emerge in a video age like ours.

    It's sad, because they are musicians, and singer/songwriters, and there is no place for up-and-comers like them in modern pop culture unless they "look the part."

    That said, there is terrific music coming out now from some young bands, you just don't see them on tv or hear them on most radio stations.
