Well, apparently there is some important game on tonight, acting as a lead-in to a special showing of American Idol.
As you can plainly see, I am not an avid sports fan – except when the Olympics air.
Then I turn into a raving lunatic, acting like an avid and obsessive sports fan. It really is one of the great mysteries of life.
But, I googled the information and it is the NFC championship game between New York and San Francisco.
American Idol airs directly after the game on Fox at 10:00 Eastern. So, as long as there is no overtime, we should be good to go.
Also, was I the only one bummed over the fact that the Coal Miner Kid, Shane Bruce, didn’t receive a golden ticket to Hollywood during the Pittsburgh auditions? So much air time was allotted to him, so perhaps he will come back as a wild card.
And why didn’t he perform “In The Still Of The Night” for the judges instead of the coal miners? “Hallelujah” just doesn’t cut it, plus it is over-performed. He brought nothing new to the table with this song.
Nevertheless, he demonstrated great potential for growth and, given his personal history, would have attracted a huge audience. So, either Idol will rethink this or they have another agenda in mind.
Tonight’s show features the discovered talent at the San Diego auditions. Are you excited and pumped? I am! Comments are open so start this party early!
