Anoop and other Idol Observations
No matter what you if you hate American Idol or have voted every Tuesday night for the past 7 years, you have to admit…some things are different this year. For once in my life, I think I can say without thinking twice, in this case, change is definitely good.
Here are the things I really love about this year:
1) Textured voices. We aren’t going for the same ol’ same ol’ “hey, that girl can belt the hell out of Mariah Carey” type. This year, we’ve got grainy voices, well trained voices, voices that are out of control , voices that maybe should be stopped, and the voice of course ,of Anoop.
2) Paula Abdul is now the most cracked out has been of all time that hasn’t been hospitalized. Seriously? Jonas Brother look alike Adam Lambert’s upbeat performance made that crazy, fake baked, botoxed freak spaz out like a slinky on a trampoline. I’m not saying the performance wasn’t good. I just wasn’t on the other side of the screen weeping.
3) Seacrest. Dear Ryan-you never get less annoying or less full of yourself. And yet there are rare instances where a flash of that dazzlingly bleached white smile of yours might have me on my knees.
4) Simon-You never change your outfit or your attitude. Keep up the good work. You know what sells and I love it.
Who knows? With talent like this, maybe I’ll end up actually buying one of their albums. MAYBE.
And yes, earthlings, Anoop is safe again tonight while fellow contestants Jasmine and Jorge, were not so lucky.
