Happy Dog Days Of Summer everyone!
I have been slacking and enjoying the company of family and friends, while recuperating from my latest and greatest cold and flu virus. I think the crazy, unpredictable weather and the lack of sleep may have contributed to my latest minor health setback, but it sure was fun while it lasted.
And who can ignore the excitement of the Olympics? It has been such a great run, hasn’t it?
Michael Phelps is a rare jewel in athletic history and certainly revved up the ratings for NBC – although I found their coverage erratic and manipulative to say the least. Sitting around all night waiting for key athletes to perform is not my idea of entertainment. What happened to a posted schedule of nightly coverage?
Oh well, onward and upward. Next week, America’s Got Talent is back in full swing with the Finalists from the YouTube auditions. Awesome! Is Sharon Osbourne still on tap as judge or has she left the show mid-season? Oh me, oh my so much controversy. I love it!
And then there is the judges’ selection for American Idol. Now that Mariah Carey is on board, who will bookend her?
Nick Jonas is far too young in my opinion. The fact that they are even considering him speaks volumes for the direction Idol is taking. It’s not about the singers anymore, just the judges. How are we to create stars from this show when the Top 12 are currently eclipsed by the superstars in the judges’ seats?
And, we cannot forget NBC’s The Voice which begins its third season in September. I personally know of two singers who may be contestants on this show. As the preliminary auditions are to yet completed, we will have to see how this pans out. However, the pairing of Michael Buble with Blake Shelton has winner written all over it. Agree or disagree?
And how do you think X-Factor will fare this season with the inclusion of Brittany Spears and Demi Lovato?
So, let the conversation begin!! I need group therapy here! :). Hit the comments section!
