Frankly, it's just too much pressure, plus, I've realized something.
I've realized that the best part of American Idol are the conversations between all of us at-home-on-the couch judges that are wayyy more entertaining then the show. So I thought I'd share a little of that with you.
You all can be like flies on the wall of my family room, listening in to all the unedited comments, both snarky and poignant. Ok, mostly snarky. But hey, if the contestants agreed to be on T.V., then they agreed to be victims of snark attacks. It just goes with the territory. Having your 30 seconds of fame comes at a price.
What follows are real conversations as we watched the AI contestants. Names have been changed to protect the guilty.
Most of the cast is self-explanatory, except "The Girl," that's my 17 (and 8 months) year old daughter.
The Girl - "He looks like a squash."
My brother - "No, he looks like a pumpkin."
Me - "Well, a pumpkin is a squash."
Hubby - "And her new boyfriend looks like an asparagus. Maybe she was raised on a farm."
Hubby - "You can tell they're going to suck just from their shirt."
The Girl - "That one looks like he's poopin.
(She yells at the T.V. screen) Open your eyes, tomatoe head!"
I don't know what's up with the vegetable theme.
Me - "Steven Tyler said she had a tight squeeky WHAT?"
The Girl - "She sounds like a bumble bee."
The Girl - "Wow, they've had 700 foster kids? That's alot of lives to change."
Hubby - "Her butt is like her voice. Not horrible, but somewhat off-putting."
Hubby - "He's a cross between Seth Rogen and Sasquatch. He's Sethsquatch!"
See what I mean?
