I have never been an American Idol fan. Sure I've caught a few episodes here and there and I recognize names like "Kelly Clarkson" and "Ruben Stoddard" but it's not "my kind of music" so I seldom pay much attention. Last night House was a re-run so I watched the first show of the new season of AI. I confess, I laughed. out. loud. I am amazed at the length some people will go to get on tv. Of course, I went to bed with a splitting headache but I'm not sad I watched it.
