I honestly thought I wasn't going to like this season of American Idol. It's no secret that I had a married girl crush on Simon Cowell, so when he announced he was leaving, I was more than slightly bummed. I'm happy that the show has carried on, though, and that it seems to be doing well. Without him, this season is nothing if not nicer. Maybe less honest, but nice is good, too.
I was shocked with everyone else when Pia was eliminated, I hated to see Paul go, but I am totally pulling for James Durbin.
This doesn't mean I want him to win. In fact, it might be better for him if he doesn't. A record deal is as good as his, anyway, and I'd rather see him work on his own project/music without the white noise of the American Idol label.
I mean, James Durbin does Muse. Does it get any better than this?
(sigh) Emo angsty boy rocker. Are you really all that surprised?
