Thursday 13 (#3)

Thirteen Things Kimmy and Jacob love about American Idol:

1. The hundreds of people who believe they can really sing...and are totally shocked to hear someone tell them the truth...YOU CAN'T SING!

2. All the crazy people.

3. The way people dress for attention.

4. The shocking way teens cuss and behave so badly while their parents stand right beside them...not saying a word. (Parents... 1. Discipline your children 2. Don't encourage them and fill them with false hope... singing is one thing you can either do or not do. simple...we can't have or do everything we want in life.

5. The way contestants love up the judges before the audition, but bad mouth and hate them seconds after they're rejected.

6. That a girl from the Ukraine auditioned (singing Bohemian Rhapsody nonetheless) just to receive a Performers Visa. God Bless the U.S.

7. Grown men can proudly dress like Dorothy.

8. A man clearly smokin' crack and can't sing, but can jump around the stage and act a fool can go to Hollywood.

9. Contestants can audition multiple times and continue to make idiots of themselves.

10. Fake tans, anorexia and heavy make-up won't make you a star.

11. The way Simon tells it like it is.

12. Paula's teeth don't seem to be taking up as much of her mouth as they did last season...must be usin' the new Fixodent.

13. We sound so much better when we sing!!!! :p

Nice list

I LOVE American Idol.

I tend to get very opiniated and obnoxious when I like one contestant.

My daughter always likes the cute boys. She loves Clay Aiken.

Thanks for the nice comment.
I still can't believe that people read and like my blog.
It makes me happy!

I loved the little cowboy last nervous, but he had a decent voice. SIMON actually was the one who had a heart and said yes!! I hope he gets ahold of his nerves and pulls through!! I love the tryouts!! Best part of the whole show!!

Happy Thursday!

An excellent list. Especially when you wrote about teenagers and the way they sometimes act around their parents. I don't have television, so I haven't seen much American Idol, but even I knew enough about the show to get what you were saying. :-)

Hi Kimmy! First, thanks for visiting my thirteen! Second, your terrier is ADORABLE. We have a Cairn terrier, and they are certainly fun little dogs.

(Is this the part where I confess to actually liking that Peter, Paul, & Mary CD and never watching an entire episode of American Idol from start to finish? Shhhh!!! LOL)

Amen to Simon telling it like it is. Even though sometimes he goes a bit too far. I am not a big fan of the auditions at the start of the season but the rest of it I love!
