Springtime IdolingOkay. American Idol used to be my guilty pleasure but now I’ll freely admit that I’m a big fan, and have been for a long time. Every spring you’ll find me glued to the TV two nights a week, critiquing the performances and anticipating who will be eliminated this week.
I probably always say this, but I think this year is one of the best seasons yet. They’ve toned down the animosity between some of the judges, which always seemed too over-the-top to be real, added a fourth judge, and moved away from choosing an inappropriate final contestant.
I’ve never been very good at picking the winner, although I always have a couple of favorites. This year’s favs are Danny Gokey, Allison Iraheta and Adam Lambert. These three have "mad skills" as the judges like to say, and their performances are a joy to watch.
Are you an Idol fan? A devoted watcher of another “reality” series, no matter what the season? Who’s your top pick?
Until next time,
