As Randy Jackson would say, here we are, just two days away from a new season of American Idol. Season 13 should definitely be an interesting one, for those of you who will actually watch it. With the new changes in judges, the contestants might have a hard time getting any attention with the cat fights going on between Mariah and Nicki.
I feel bad for both Randy Jackson and Keith Urban since they will not only have to judge the contestants, but they will have to be the moderators between the girl judges. Wake up Mariah and Nicki, American Idol is NOT about you, it is about finding the next “American Idol”, the next great talent of 2013, and the next person who’s life is going to change by getting that golden ticket to Hollywood.
Phillip Phillips won American Idol last year and if you remember, the judges even made the statement when he auditioned that “you’re the next American Idol”. It was ironic that Phillip actually did win after that comment, but he was fantastic and deserved to win.
If you have been following American Idol, then you will know that it has been 5 seasons since a “GIRL” won. In Season Six, Jordin Sparks was the last girl to win, and the boys have taken over since. I think it is time for a girl to take back the title and win this season already!
We are anxiously awaiting for Wednesday night to arrive so our season of Idol can start, as we will scarf down dinner quickly, get in our favorite chair and get comfy, grab a cup of coffee, and sit back and watch all the hoopla start. We have been waiting for this night to arrive for quite some time, and we are ready to begin our trek down Idol Lane. Ya know you always have to watch Idol from the beginning, as you get to see all of those awkward quirky singers who “think” they can sing, but cannot. You know that their family & friends have probably pushed them, encouraged them, and coaxed them to go and sign up for Idol, as they think in the back of their heads that they actually have a chance at winning American Idol. But for those contestants who are given a great big “NOOOOOO” across the judges table, are usually the ones who throw a huge fit and want to fight the judges or beg the judges for a second chance. There are no second chances in Idol, as you only have one chance to make a first impression. Period.
So I hope that everyone who loves American Idol will join in with us as we do our weekly review of our thoughts of the next emerging star. One thing for sure is that this season will definitely be an interesting season with lots to talk about, not only about the off key notes that contestants hit, but the trash that the judges will be throwing back and forth. So sit back & enjoy the show…
