I never talk to the TV as much as I do as when I'm watching American Idol. Dude! I am 41 years old! What the hell do I care about which 17 year-old has too much attitude, or not enough, or is pitchy one night, or is "bringing it" the other night, or is not "bringing it." I have three things to say about this season. 1) Simon has softened and that's a good thing. That helps us all overlook his weird tight-sweater wardrobe obsession. 2) Paris ROCKS! 3) The grey-haired dude singer is weird but I love him!
