Would you believe me if I said I have not watched a single episode of American Idol this year? I watched faithfully if not religiously for seven seasons. The first episode I ever watched was when Clay lost to Ruben. I was hooked. Sad, but hooked. If you have been around this blog for a while, you remember some of my recaps from the Sanjaya era, give or take a season.

Yes there is some good music to be heard and y'all know I have a thing for a good cover. But what ultimately led me to delete it from my DVR lineup this season was how predictable it got.

Which brings me to my point: I can tell you who will when tonight. Let's look back at the past four winners:

Still bitter that THIS guy went on to win the season I tried out for but whatever.

I had to use Google to even remember who won this season.

Had a hit, but where is he now?

Still selling records... still gelling that hair.

So of these two, who do you think will win? Hmmm.

This is what happens when you put cell phones in the hands of preteen girls. According to Wikipedia, the ability to text your vote in was added during the second season of the show, when AT&T became a sponsor. That season, 7.5 million text messages were sent to American Idol. By contrast, 178 million texts were sent in during season eight.

So congrats Philip Phillips, not just for undoubtedly winning the show but for having the best name in the history of names! Now if you will excuse me, I'm going to watch some really unpredictable television programs, like Jersey Shore.


  1. Amen! We did watch it this year but I totally agree... it's so frustrating! I like Philip but in my opinion, if we're going off of true singing talent, Jessica is the obvious choice. I'm sure Philip will win though!

  2. You could be the next 'Reality Steve' for American Idol...get a few insider scoops early on, make a few accurate predictions and wait for the big bucks to come rolling in ;)


Oh goody!
