Who will be the next American Idol?
“American Idol” premieres tomorrow on Fox. Now, I haven’t been a fan of the show from the very beginning, but I have to admit the audition episodes are the very best. They are hilarious and warms your home in the freezing winter months.
I may not religiously follow the show, however, I peek in every now and then. I know all the winners of the show by name….even if I can’t always remember the season they won.
The BTS fact of the audition episodes is that they are purely for entertainment purposes. When I auditioned in 2009, there were so many extremely talented singers at the first round, there is absolutely NO REASON why so called bad singers make it to the TV judges round (aka the 3rd round. I guess the only answer is to entertain you the viewer. I highly enjoy it!
