American Idol – The Phenomenon Strikes Again

Well America, it is about that time again. Time for Idol mania! On January 17th we all get to bear witness to an event which, like it or not, has become a part of pop culture from sea to shining sea, and beyond.

The judges are back. Paula isn’t leaving as oft rumored, Simon is – to be sure – still a jerk albeit mostly correct jerk and Randy might be carrying around a few extra pounds, or maybe his Rolex will still be hanging loosely around his wrist.

This season promises to bring the usual hours of coverage of the ‘bad’ auditions along with a few good ones sprinkled in to remind us that, yes, some people actually can sing. Polls overwhelmingly show that the public loves to laugh at the miserable, tuneless contestants out there so let there be little doubt that we will be treated to an earful of pathetic renditions of the Beatles to Rolling Stones and everything in between.

Which lead us to ponder, why do people that clearly can’t sing enter the contest in the first place? I can’t sing (and judging from the last column on the Apprentice, can’t write either) but at least I know it. I sing in the shower and the tile cracks, I wouldn’t be caught dead on American Idol. So why do we get treated to so many, uh, poor performances? Theories abound……

News flash here……..If anyone doubts that American Idol is still as popular as it was when it first aired, they should consider that the show will be the most expensive show in TV history on which to advertise when its fifth season kicks off. An ad for the Wednesday show this season will cost a whooping $700,000! Of course they are offering a large discount for the Tuesday show……its only $660,000……..Poor Simon, he must need more money.
