This year it doesn’t have the same wow factor, because Adam isn’t in it, BUT the one way they’ve countered this is to really up the drama on the show, and they’ve done it so well! Ryan Seacrest is an amazing host – I don’t think anyone hosts better – and he has us on the edge of our seats. Anyone hosting anything can learn a lot from this man. I mean, did you see Big Mike’s farewell last night? Bloody hell, it had me in tears, but it’s also probably because Big Mike was a very fine human being and he was honored for that. It was a powerful show!
The mentors have also been fantastic this year, but none better than Usher – wow, he’s a man full of heart. I’ll be buying his tunes just because I have seen the sort of man he is. Not to mention Harry Connick Jr., what a funny bastard!
So well done American Idol – you’ve come into your own, and the power of the show is obviously taking off as all of the world’s superstars are clamoring to perform on your stage.
You’ve got a couple of dedicated fans here and please, can our choice win this year? Mamma Sox it is!!
Yours, without the bollocks
