American Idol is teetering toward inanity this season after a promising start.
The new judges who were so strong in the early episodes have evolved into boring cheerleaders with nothing to say.
The guest performers, including Diddy-Dirty Money, Fantasia, Sugarland, Jamie Foxx, Stevie Wonder, and The Black Eyed Peas, have been less than spectacular.
Everyone’s talking about how great this year’s contestants are, but that’s hype. They’re good but not great, just like most other seasons.
That deep-voiced country kid with the smug look on his face makes me want to puke. Stefano is about as exciting as sap running down a tree. The Rod Stewart wannabe is a one-trick pony who should have been put down a long time ago. The hot girls have been voted off, presumably by the nation’s teen girls who drive the voting on the show.
The only remaining finalist I might pay to see is the screaming rocker with the facial tic.
So, into this mess goes our very own Kelly Clarkson, Idol‘s first winner. She’ll be guest performing on Thursday’s results show and reminding us why we still care about this program.
