American Idol: watched by stupid Americans

I'll admit, I've been kind of sucked into the American Idol hype to some small degree, because it's kind of neat to watch these relative nobodies make a name for themselves.

This week's results were absolutely insulting. One of the most talented of the group was voted out, and worse, three of the better performers were all in the bottom three. This after the two guys showed the worst performances ever. They sucked, especially the carrot top teenager. He killed Manilow's "Mandy" in a way that I didn't think it could be killed. As Simon would say, "Absolutely dreadful."

Yet that hack survived, and wasn't even in the bottom three? Americans are really fucking stupid and have no taste. That's all it could be. What else do you expect from a country where half the people think Bush is doing an acceptable job?

One sidebar, Randy Jackson is annoying. His little "thing" he does at the start of the show is so forced and fake. It's like a caricature of a bad black stereotype. I don't think you have the street cred, "dog."

The show has me for the first couple weeks. I think I could watch "William Hung's" all day long, but the actual competition is.. well... "absolutely dreadful."
