Another show I've been watching is American Idol 5
. I used to watch only the auditions but forget about it totally when the contest proper starts. But now, I found myself hooked on watching what happens to the contestants. I am totally supporting Taylor Hicks. I like how the guy takes things, and he also sings well, unique song choices too. If you watch a local singing competition, man, the same old songs, same old sad stories, contestants playing it SAFE, SAFE, SAFE! It's very tiring to watch... add the screaming hostess to that formula and you have an excruciating show. BLEH!
