I'm Caving

You know, I thought I was just going to let it go. With such big changes on the show, I thought I wouldn't care; would be ready to be silent.

Yeah, not gonna happen.

I am officially re-in-love with American Idol.

Like everyone else, I was hesitant. No Simon? There can't be Idol with out him!



Who? JLo? Are you kidding me? I've never been a fan. And don't get me started on Steven Tyler. I was instantly turned OFF knowing that he would be on the stage as a judge. He's kinda creepy, no?

Now, all of that is in the past. Jennifer has had thoughtful insights and constructive feedback for the contestants. Steven, while he had a little of the creep factor when it came to the pyt's in the early weeks, has proven that he's got the chops to make the difficult calls. He's got the soft side when he needs to. Great balance.

Randy has really stepped up into the 'elder' role well. He is less a friend with the contestants and more serious about his place on the panel and he does it very well.

And you know what? I really, really like it. A lot. All of it.

So you'll be hearing from me each week, AGAIN, about all things Idol. Well, the show anyway. Will you join me? Do you watch Idol? Do you like this set of judges? Do you have an early favorite?

Every time I accidentally catch a bit of AI, I end up getting involved.

And, well...I caught the Nashville auditions.

I hate me.

I felt the same way you did, but I admit that I love Jennifer and Steven on the show. And, yes, Randy has definitely stepped up to the plate.

Though I still miss Paula taking sips out of her 'Coke' glass and making a fool of herself and pre-guessing what Simon is going to say; I think the new judges are quite entertaining.

I'll have to forego your insights for at least five days after each post, as we get Idol in India that many days later.

Yeah new team and yeah Idol!
