The premiere episodes of American Idol are now finished and I have to seriously question why I was so excited to watch them. Both episodes kind of left me with a bad taste in my mouth.
While a few individuals sang with fantastical talent, most of the auditions were forgettable. This is not to mention that the judges were lacking that certain je ne sais quoi that we, as an audience, grew to adore in the days of yore.
Don't get me wrong. I'll continue to watch this eyesore as I am compulsed to do so, but I have to agree the show has been on the decline for a few years now. Maybe it will get better as the season progresses. Probably not.
