What's wrong with American Idol?

For those of you who know me, you know that I don't do Reality TV. I find most of it to be rude, crude, boring and not worth wasting my time on.

There has been a lot of uproar this year about American Idol. It seems we can't really reward truly talented amateurs, but we can spend hours viewing, talking about, celebrating anybody that is willing to sell their soul to the commercial devil and act like an idiot on stage.

We could take a good long look at the British version of that show.

What's wrong with American Idol? Let's start with 2 of the 3 "judges" and one of them is NOT Simon.

If you want to hear what this show REALLY should be about, go listen to these two clips on YouTube.....and remember the name Paul Potts....you're going to be hearing it in the future

What we need is a show that is really interested in REAL talent not all that noise we've been hearing

I don't care for Idol at all although I confess to enjoying Dancing with the Stars. It cracks me up.

Yeah, Paul was great but his competition didn't catch my attention -- I thought it rather mundane.

I loved Simon's reaction to Paul --he was positively stunned. And so was I -- he really is a gifted artist. I think Paul can stop selling car phones.

I can't handle reality TV. Give me good old murder, sex and violence of the fictional kind.
