American Idol

Well, it's that time again. I live in Birmingham Alabama, home of Ruben Studdard, Bo Bice, and Taylor Hicks. Diana DeGarmo was born here too. We're so good at producing AI's that they held auditions here this summer. They showed some of the auditions last night, and found some great singers, although some of them were from North Carolina, Oklahoma, and Georgia. Please note that the lady dressed in the Big Bird yellow outfit was NOT from Birmingham!!!!! The judges weren't prepared for how polite people are here. Even Simon was touched!

HA HA!! I had a great time watching last night. Even the Big Bird chick! It was quite hysterical 🙂 🙂 🙂 That southern politeness definitely SHOWS!

OMG! I was rolling over the big bird chick! I love that she said that she was 33 and then after the asked her really she said that she was 50 or something LOL!

I think the auditions are the best part of the show.

i am a confessed AI addict! i even call and vote. I ❤ taylor. my sister still lives in alabama and she got to watch 3 hours before me, so she would call me and let me know what was going to happen. the night of the finale she called, i said, "dont tell me!" it sucked, i knew taylor had won, just because she sounded happy.

i wasn't originally til last year, see i work for cingular and we are the sponser so naturually i had to find out what was going on so i watched it last year and now i'm hooked. HAHAHA

anyone think the other door thing was as funny as I did? I was laughing so hard..

I liked that last guy that auditioned in San Antonia last night. Really good.

The door thing was friggin HYSTERICAL…I was ROFL!!

I also liked the guy who admittingly told the judges that he was going to "trash talk for the cameras" LOL LOL That was too funny!!!

lenora, i loved the last guy too. i love that song, cupid! tonight should be hilarious!

I LOVED the "trash-talker" but even funnier was the expression on his cousin's face as he went in!

The door has been a giggle-getter for me all season. Last night was such a hilarious compilation, esp. when Paula and Simon grabbed the wrong door, too.

I am so looking forward to tonight. I love the Best of the Worst moments.

Did anyone see American Idol tonight? The last singing competition is between Blake and Jordan. I think that Jordan nailed it tonight.

Um. Those of us on the West Coast haven't seen it yet. It's not on for another half hour here.

doesn't matter much tonight, but please try to remember that for tomorrow!! We're three hours behind East Coast. And if we have any Hawaiians or Alaskans, they're even farther behind.

That is the one thing I dislike about living here… it is like we are 2nd class citizens... ggg... unless you have a dish....

We have a dish, but we don't subscribe to East coast networks.

Anyway, I thought both performers were mediocre tonight.
For me, since Melinda is gone, it's a draw and I don't have a favorite.

I don't think this season in general had the caliber of talent as previous seasons.

Same here. However, between the two left, I think Blake is a better performer, and Jordan has a beautiful voice. I have no preference between the two as a winner either. I'll be surprised with the outcome anyway and won't pipe in the winner before PST. (btw - I thought the show was "live" everywhere so the votes could begin at the same time?!?)

That's funny! I thought the show was live too..good thing someone said something 🙂

I too was disappointed when Melinda left…I think she was the AI winner a long time ago.

But I'm really torn between Blake & Jordin (she spells her name with an I) I really like Blake's style but Jordin's voice is really beautiful.

it is live for the East Coast 😉 That was one of the strangest things for me moving east from Seattle. Football doesn't start until like 1pm here on Sundays!

And on election years…it is so wierd to have to wait, and wait for polls to be closed on the west coast.

I wouldn't complain tooo much about being second class citizens...it is the price you pay for living in the world's most perfect climate, and beautiful scenery 😉
