Anyone watching this year? It's still kind of early to be picking favorites but from the last two nights I kind of like Ramiele Malubay

I only watch the auditions in each city, because I find them so hilarious. Once the ones "going to Hollywood!" have been chosen, I'm no longer interested.

Yes, the auditions are probably the best part.

In my opinion, for anyone that appreciates talent, the best is yet to come.

Funny thing. votefortheworst.com, the website that was keeping Sanjaya aline for so many weeks was telling everyone to vote for Amy. Looks like they are loosing their touch.

Unfortunately, this year has been marred by the influx of professional talent. At least four of the top 24 have had recording contracts in the past. One of which was worth as least 2 million dollars. That, to me, takes away from the amateur aspect of the competition.

Not unlike the stir caused last year in "Britain's Got Talent" when Paul Potts blew everyone away. I loved his singing and ordered his first CD after he won. But then learned he really wasn't what I'd call a true amateur, given his training and past performances.

I think he was still an amateur, he hadn't sung for about 4 years and had a full time job as a mobile phone shop manager.

Yes he had won a bit of money in another talent contest and gone for proper lessons. Yes he had done a bit of touring but with amateur opera companies. you surely don't think that someone can only be a true amateur because they have never sung in public.

And as I said earlier he had not sung for quite some time due to breaking a collarbone and other reasons.

He is on tour in the USA in march if you want to see him.

Sorry gone a little off topic
Back to American Idol.
