American Idol straight to your home

American Idon now in it's eight season
American Idon now in it’s eight season

Did you watch American Idol last night? Two hours of, shall I say, ‘same old Idol’ except of course with the new addition of Kara DioGuardi, the other female judge.

I was hoping she would be injecting some new element in judging but I think instantly, she has became as ‘one of the three other judges’ – grumpy-Mr-No Simon, tearful Paula and err, randy Randy. At one stage I though she was trying to hard to show that she’s a serious one; but give her a break and let’s see in the next few weeks.

Anyway, yes, two hours of weirdoes, wannabes and babes singing or trying to sing their hearts out. Why are some people trying to make shame of themselves I wonder. However, throughout the show I can’t help thinking to myself how determine people are to reach the top, to achieve their dreams (whatever these are) and to do anything, anything at all.

One contestant wore a bikini hence a nickname for her the ‘Bikini Girl’. She got the golden ticket, made it to the next level, not because of her almost-there-clothes but Simon said, ‘Beautiful.’ I hope he meant her voice not her body.

The season opener pulled in 30 million viewers, the lowest for an Idol premiere since 2004. I am not surprised as its now in it’s eight season, people are getting bored. I am already bored with the Malaysian version, Akademi Fantasia, AF.

Now Astro was quick to grab opportunities – while grabbing my keropok udang during the commercial break last night, Astro announced AF’s next season’s auditions throughout Malaysia. How ‘timely’.

    Kara DioGuardi’s cuteness almost makes up for Simon’s horrid haircut
