American Idol -> It's Painful On The Ears!

Thu Jan 18, 2007 11:28 am

I've been watching the current show, which is mainly the "loser" auditions, but I don't recall it ever being this painful to hear before! Some of those singing have made me plug my ears...I didn't want to mute it so as not to miss the judges comments, but...a few times, it was almost needed...

Well, at least they get to be on TV...without having to commit a crime...other than "ear assault"!

I'm watching as well.

What is disturbing to me is the really poor singers think they can actually sing and are talented and get so distraught after being told that they suck.

Do their friends and family not tell them the truth in order to avoid this disappointment. Are they putting on a show, faking it?

Odd.

Oh man, last night was pretty good (as in pretty bad singing-wise  Wink )

I laughed so hard when they did that menage of "Dont 'cha" by the Pussycat Dolls. Some of those people... especially that computer programmer guy and that "bushbaby" as Simon referred to him as!  biggrin

That computer dude was a joke. I don't know if i should laugh or feel sorry for him. Loved it as Ryan just starred a t him. Lets see how uncomfortable we can get him to be.

"That's all i have to say about that"

wow, and again, are these people for real?

I know for a fact that I can't sing...and thus I only do so in a crowd, and then not very loudly...so anyone who would do this on TV should know they are being part of the failure show...

He looked like a crazed serial killer.

I liked this one. She really thought she was sexy. Frumpy librarian is more like it. Then we saw her mom...

 rotfl  What a nerd!!! He actually thought he was a good singer, too. My goodness. I love the expression on his face when the judges are telling him how much he sucks. Also, best part of the entire video is when hes standing there feeling awkward, and you can hear them cracking up inside!! HILARIOUS!!!  rotfl 

Cheers,
Kyle

PS -- I wonder how much Coca-Cola paid for those bottles to be placed like that.........

Simon hit a delightfully wonderful new low in dealing with Kenneth Briggs:

Do yourselves a favour. If you're fans of this show go out and get the book, "Chart Throb" by Ben Elton. It's a classic.

Did anybody else watch that clip & have this guy pop up in their heads, especially with the organ music in the background?:

I don't watch this show, but keep getting annoyed with ads for it during the FOX programs, and NFL football games as well as unecessary 'news' stores about it.
People love to see car wrecks, people hitting each other, wackos with strange ideas and beliefs and people making fools of themselves or being made fools around the world. AI with these 'loser' episodes is just entertaining those small minded people. So many people watch this show so attracting advertisers so it has a snowball effect. I wish they would reconsider their procedures as to auditions to keep out those who are totally unqualified and unable to sing and stop embarassing these losers. I just hope some mentaly disturbed and ashamed contestent doesn't try to hurt or kill Simon in revenge.
And what about Paula Abdul? It is sad to see her beheave the way she has lately, and I wonder if she has a serious mental health problem or under the influence of medication to deal with it. Maybe she is part of the strange entertainment of this show.
