Why do I find American Idol interesting??
What I liked the most is when the selection starts, the judges went to different states and allocates some talents there from a thousand of people awaiting to be famous..Thats when the fun start..There will be the weirdos, the freak, the talented, the nervous, the beaubelle, and so on…
I watched the new American idol when they reach Atlanta ATL and invites Mary J. Blige as a guest judge.
Why eh everytime the contestant got the ticket to Hollywood, i cried..
Ok i know its all about “Pants on the ground” that makes it such a success but I also love Vanessa Wolfe, the bridge-jumping girl that is authentic and country, as said by Kara. She’s incredibly sweet, genuine and humble( she mentioned the Dollar store where she bought the dress she wore).
There were tears in my eyes everytime they got the golden ticket. The background music was overwhelming..its all put together greatly by the producer. It touches to heart. Reality TV in Malaysia should really use AI as a benchmark to improve their quality of the show. I really dont get it when LG Star Search aired..its really nothing..Ok back to the AI..They found amusing talent..or not.There’s a stories behind every contestant, like a nearly 3 times death, the good son taking care of spina bifida’s mom, the cop who protects and serve residents, the BFF’s and so on..That what make AI very catchy.
Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson, Kara DioGuardi and Ellen DeGeneres will be the judge this season.(Is kara and ellen related??Their name sounds alike somehow :))..Ellen replace Paula and this also will be the last AI Simon judge, sadly.
