Well, boys and girls. It’s January and the American Idol auditions are upon us. I only sort of watched the show tonight. After so many seasons, they all run together and even the two new judges couldn’t make me care very much. I hope interest will return once we reach Hollywood week.
I’ve been reading the blogs about the changes coming to Idol, and I have to say that they all sound very good to me. Yes, I will miss Simon a little. But I always wished he could be honest without being so snarky. I hope the new judges can deliver honesty without snark. I also hope the focus really will be back on the singers and off the judges once the competition starts. The last two seasons were just way too much about the judging panel.
