American Idol a Bore?

I am a huge fan of American Idol. As most of you know, I am currently obsessed with last year's winner, Kris Allen. Needless to say, I haven't missed an episode of American Idol Season 9. Tonight was the first round of the "live" performances of the top 24, starting with the girls. I am not entertained as I watch right now.

These ladies aren't very exciting...or good! I cannot sing, nor do I claim I can. However, I am a potential AI consumer so I can have an opinion =)

The beginning was the worst. Voices were out of key, songs were boring, and it was just a plain uneventful hour. It did get better as the show progressed. My favorite is DiDi Benami, I thought she did amazing! Runners up for me include Haeley Vaughn and Crystal Bowersox. Hopefully these three ladies stick around for awhile.

I am looking forward to the guys' performances tomorrow. My favorite male is Andrew Garcia. He's from Moreno Valley, a city near my hometown. I am rooting for him to do well!

You may remember him from Hollywood Week doing Paula Abdul's "Straight Up".

If you watch, who are your favorites?

I'm with Marta on this one. I've never seen an episode. I've just never been interested. Plus it's on at the same time as BL.

We pretty much have the exact same opinion on the cast of AI this season! I love DiDi Benami and Crystal Bowersox. I hope they stick around for awhile.

I also loved Andrew's version of Straight Up. So original and it could be a hit today, in my opinion!

Shhhh don't tell, but Casey looked good in his black and red last night!
