Last Season of American Idol

Is it just me or has American Idol finally pulled off a season that has enough variety and talent to keep us captivated?  Usually, I just like the audition phase and afterward (until the final shows airs) I’m totally bored.

The only thing that may have kept me tuning in were the dynamics between Keith Urban and Harry Connick, Jr.  Well, that and Jenny from the Block’s fashion choices.  Even then, I’d skip through the performances as they weren’t that spectacular.

This season, though – they have mixed it up a bit giving us a whole new show.  Why haven’t they done this over the last five years?  If they had, maybe the VOICE wouldn’t have been most of America’s choice in singing competitions?

 

A few of my favorites for this year? Dalton Rappattoni for one.  This kid is one to watch for sure.  Tonight’s performance of Billy Idol’s Rebel Yell was perfection.  Olivia Rox is another contender that I think has a bright future, and after tonight’s song, Confident, I think she’s going through.

Your thoughts??  Who are some of your favorites?  Have you seen a difference with this last season?

Rant….just a little

Tam posted today on something that just got me in a little rant mode.  Although I commend American Idol for their “Gives Back” show in getting our nation involved in doing something…anything to help those in need across our own nation and abroad, I’m more than upset at the moment.

Censorship is necessary in some forms so that our kids aren’t exposed to certain messages in the media and film industry.  However American Idol is supposed to be a family friendly show, where the whole family can watch and be entertained.

Last night they targeted their acts to the younger audiences, as the music industry is tailored to the younger generation.  These stars mentioned over and over, “Kids break out your piggy banks, parents get out your wallets.”

Obviously it’s a show where kids will be watching and tuning in…..

YET they censor the name Jesus, and leave in words like bitch and ass???  Come on give us parents, Christian and non, a break from vulgar language with our kids in the room!!  Seriously????
