Idol: I can't believe I'm so into it this year
I have been watching American Idol ever since it's been on TV, but I don't usually vote. I like it because I'v been in so many similar situations and it brings brings back all sorts of memories. I have been a performer and a music director, have been auditioned and have auditioned singers many times for musicals. Have judged and been judged.
Last night, twelve boys performed, with the hope of being one of the five finalists picked Thirsday of this week. The talent this year is really amazing and I found myself writing down their names and notes about their performances. Then wonder of wonders, I voted for the five I thought were the best.
In case you were watching too, these are the five I picked in order of those I liked the best: Casey, Jacob, Paul, Clint, Stephano, and James. Oh, that's six. Well, I guess I voted for six then. The judges were blown away by these six too.
The girls are performing tonight. I am definitely watching. Then, on Thursday, the ten with the highest scores will be announced. At that point, the competition for the title of American Idol, 2011, will begin.
