American Idol auditions - week 1...*shudder*

We all know people who think they are much better at something than they really are. I beg of you, in the name of all that is good and decent, if you consider yourself a friend to this person, DO NOT let them audition for American Idol! I mean really! The auditions this week were, to borrow from Simon's vocabulary, atrocious. Frankly, it ticks me off royally to see the auditions of people with such misplaced confidence that they believe they are the next big thing paired with such utter talentlessness. The AI officials passed them through the preliminary auditions strictly for the ratings value of having these horrendous auditions on TV, when truly talented people were told "you just aren't what we are looking for for season 6" (read: you are neither supremely talented nor enough of a freak for our show).

But then, who can fault American Idol for delivering what America obviously wants to see?
