American Idol, anyone?
I have to admit, American Idol is one of my guilty pleasures. I know I shouldn't watch it, especially the auditions, because all they do early on is ridicule people and laugh at them. But, as a singer myself, I have to wonder what causes most of these people to think they can sing. Like, is it conceit, is it denial, or do they really have a network of people around them telling them they're amazing and they will surely be a star? So, I'm enjoying tonight's episode and marveling at the talent (or non-talent).

Any of you just see the big hairy guy in the Princess Leia metal bikini?

Is there a way to gouge out one's own mind's eye?

I'm an AI sucker, too. I think some people audition just for the hopes of getting on TV. Getting one's chest waxed for it, though????

Hey, I'd get my legs waxed...that would be a real screamer!

I also enjoyed the chick with the princess leia hair, and the super glittery girl who pelted Simon with profanities. GAH!

My favorite tonight was the guy with the really deep voice who sang the church songs. He had Paula and Randy in stitches

And the guy who sang that stalking song to Paula...he was real strange. I'm surprised they didn't kick him out sooner.
