Yo, Dog, American Idol Is Back
Yo, Dog! I forgot how much I missed hearing Randy Jackson calling everyone Dog on "American Idol." I'm glad it's back.
I thought the first hour has been a little slow. The big change this year, to me, is doing touchy-feely profiles on the bad singers, as well as the good ones. That way you can't tell if the person is gonna suck or not. However, I'm guessing that the bad singers who got extra special treament -- the Philadelphia tour guide and the girl from Allentown with the big star ear rings and silver eye shadow -- didn't realize they were advancing through the auditions, and given screen time, so Fox could showcase how awful they sang. Maybe that's why the dude with the baritone monatone and Alexis Cohen from Allentown were so shocked or upset that they weren't going to Hollywood.
The best part so far has been the "I Love Rock & Roll" montage of bad singers. Honestly, I've always enjoyed the first weeks of "American Idol" because it's so funny, because the singers were so horrendous. Tonight wasn't as much fun, because there were fewer singers? Producers might think we'll enjoy this mix more, but I'll probably watch less. I just want some good laughs. (William Hung, where are you?) I wait until the Hollywood round, or the Final 12, to get invested in the good singers.
Did you enjoy the "American Idol" premiere?
