American Idol

I have never been a fan.  I just didn't have the patience to watch and I always felt like if I stopped on it accidentally while channel surfing, Simon Cowell was smashing some poor kids dreams. 

Well tonight Julie was here for Wednesday night dinner club and she insisted we watch.  I wasn't thrilled and Adam...well let's just say he was not thrilled either.  But I ended up being pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it.  I think partly because Jennifer Lopez was so down to earth and super cute and the stories behind the kids on the show were so heartwarming and partly because there really was such a difference between the good and the bad. I think everyone was fairly judged.  I ended up in tears most of the show and Adam and Jules laughed at me.

I especially loved the little girl from Lumberton, NC.  Not just because she was from NC {although it helped} but her accent and enthusiasm were so sweet.  


I can't lie, I probably won't keep up with the rest of the season but it was fun to watch this once.  I may check in every once in a while to see how my favorites from tonight ended up and to spend a little bit more time with JLo and Steven Tyler.  They are refreshing to watch.   And that Ryan Seacrest, he is such a hugger.  Who knew?  Did you tune in?
