Okay, here we are in season seven of American Idol and I can’t believe that it’s still as popular as it is. Are these people for real or were they just hired for entertainment purposes only? Do they REALLY think they can sing? Is Simon really that much of an ass?
Sometimes, when I’m watching the auditions, I start feeling really bad about humanity in general. The people who start to cry from being rejected and act as though they’re going to off themselves scare me. Were they abused as children? Are they delusional? Did they stop taking their meds?
How ’bout those outfits? I’m currently watching a guy who’s at least 60 pounds overweight in skin tight black leather pants and jacket trying to sing in an operatic voice and he just can not believe that he’s been rejected. Someone needed to take him aside and fill him in before he embarrassed himself. Maybe his parents, who were standing slack jawed by the door, should be blamed.
I think that American Idol should have therapists on hand for counseling. Why anyone would audition for American Idol and put up with having the judges laugh at them is beyond me. Kind of like calling Dr. Laura and being berated. I just don’t get it.
