I seriously do not watch it. Never got on the AI "bandwagon" so to speak.
Just can't get into it.

I liked the girl last night who Simon said had no personality. We watch the first two or three shows of the season, just to get a good laugh. Last night we were changing channels and watched for awhile.

It was the "dark side", at least that is what I was told by someone in the crowd at "strong man" contest I was participating in

I've never seen it and couldn't tell you what network or when it's on. To me, it falls into the reality show category...the music/performing one, that is. I'm happy other folks enjoy it. There's something for everyone on TV.

I have a feeling David Archuleta is going to win or at least get to the top 3. Carly Smithson and Jason Castro are amazing as well. I also like the Australian guy Michael Johns. He's good.

The ladies in dispatch insisted we watch it when I was on the afternoon shift. Now that I'm on midnights I'm fortunate enough to be asleep when it's on.

I'm not a fan. Though I will say that as cute and talented as Jordin is, Blake got hosed in last year's final.

I avoided American Idol for quite a while. Then a kid who works at Goodwill got an invite to Hollywood so Wife started watching it on occasion.

And one night I'm doing crosswords while Wife watches and Chris Daughtry sings Ring of Fire. Wow, there IS something to this show.

Now I watch. Sort of.

DVR is my friend. I fast forward through the Fluff Pieces. It took about 20 minutes to watch last nights show.
