Well, the one thing we didn't need form a judge on AMERICAN IDOL is comedy. Ellen is worthless. The judges have been practically eliminated from the show editorially, their comments are hardly there at all.
Several of the people set up to be followed in the first round were quickly eliminated, destroying the fake drama that the editors had tried to create. But there were a few people to get through. There was the question of why everyone who played guitar was so damned out of tune, and why they didn't bother miking the guitars when they played, although I guess I just answered my own question.
Not sure how much longer I can watch this.
