Adam, Kris, and a Little Glee

In a rare turn of events, Jim and I actually sat down and watched American Idol last night.

I FINALLY figured what my problem is with Adam.

As I've said before, he's clearly a great singer, but after hearing him sing three times last night I realized that I really don't enjoy listening to him or watching him perform.
There is no WAY I'd ever make it through an entire album of his. Much like I'd never sit and listen to Axl Rose sing 11 songs in a row. It just isn't my thing.

I certainly appreciate the fact that he's talented - but that doesn't mean I want to listen to him. And to be completely honest, all the gushing that the judges were doing over him made it even more unbearable to me.

I agree with the fact that Adam 'out sung' Kris last night. Even so, I still enjoyed Kris' performances so much more. I thought the third song was a huge, steaming pile of crap and I can't believe it took THREE people to write it. Really???
Had they lowered the key for Kris, I really think things would have gone much better for him -but it's too late for that.

Whoever wins will not affect me in the least, I'm not that 'invested' in the outcome, and I'm sure they'll both be very successful and have great careers regardless of how it turns out tonight.

After American Idol, we watched the pilot episode of GLEE.....and I kind of loved it.

The story is quite predictable, and I can pretty much see where things are headed, but I can't wait to see it again.

I thought Matthew Morrison did a great job and I LOVED listening to Lea Michelle!! She sounded great....and the boy they have for the lead isn't too bad either. ;-)

That audition sequence made me very happy...loved the sassy black girl and the little queen made me laugh. I love the group that they've put's so 'typical', that I find the whole thing hysterical. (the black kid, the Asian kid, the gay kid, the underdog....etc...etc...)
I'm definitely looking forward to seeing this again in the fall.

Speaking of gay kids....I'm going to see 'Pirates' tonight at the Huntington Theatre.
I'm very interested in seeing it, and since I got a free ticket - I couldn't refuse.

Keep an eye out for my 'review'.

Have a great day!!!

Let's Pray!
I completely agree with you...especially about Jane Lynch as the coach of the 'Cheerios'.
She is brilliant.
