Topic: American Idol 9: Musicians' Perspective?
As painful as the first eight seasons of this show were to watch, I stuck them out so I could have something to talk about with my Mom. This year, the best of the Top 11 is barely as good as the worst of the kids I have to cut from my local community talent shows each year.
However, while I'm watching these pathetic youngsters (Crystal being the obvious exception) murdering perfectly good songs each week, I can't help but imagine that 95% of America is thinking "Wow, that kid has SOMMME voice!"
Just wondering...am I the only musician who still bothers to watch this show? And, if you are still keeping up with it (even if just for mom's sake, like me), are you finding it as much of a chore to sit through as I am?
