I think you have to judge everything based on your personal taste. And if that means being critical, so be it. I hate political correctness. I absolutely loathe it.
American Idol voting starts this week! The new format looks like crap, people. I don't like it. Six girls and Six guys will perform tomorrow night (or tonight, depending on when you read this), and then the top THREE will move on to the "finals". That's right. Only one shot, people! After three week of doing this, we'll have 9 people. Then the judges will go in and pick 3 people from the remaining 27 contestants, bringing our Finals to 12 (which is normal).
This means there could be 10 girls and 2 guys. This means it could be all guys. This means that your favorite will only get one chance to sing. That's it. Unless they make it to the top 12.
This makes me mad because I like this stage. I love hearing everyone sing several times before the Top 12 because it gives the contestant a chance to show us what they are capable of. I like having an even number of guys and girls. I like the equality, people! With this? Not fair! Someone will have one off week --and BOOM. That's it. No forgiveness. They will be gone...not to mention how hard it will be when you have more than Three amazing people in each group.
This makes me almost as upset as when they told Jamar he didn't make the top 36. ARGH! I hope it's worth watching this year...
