Good Sunday, everyone. It’s a beautiful day here and I am enjoying both my renewed health and the gorgeous, sunny weather. Truly a blessing from God!
However, I also realized that it was time to add a new blog post about American Idol, giving you an opportunity to post updates about American Idol past present and, especially, the future.
I am sure many of you have already seen the spiffy American Idol ad for the new season. It was aired this past week during the So You Think You Can Dance Results Show and it was quite the spectacle.
I think this is a first for American Idol in that they have never ( I hope I’m correct here) aired a commercial for the show prior to the preliminary auditions. However, these are desperate times and desperate times calls for desperate measures.
I truly hope that the producers get their act together and produce a quality show this season. Yes, Rickey Minor is gone, Simon Cowell’s gone, Paula Abdul is gone – but that, to me, means a fresh new start.
They need to borrow a page from the “So You Think You Can Dance” people and start populating the show with creative singers possessing consummate vocal skills. Anything less will produce another snooze fest, similar to last season and Season 6.
Personally, Season 7 was the best season – the singers were diverse, enormously talented, extremely personable and very passionate about their music. And experience counts! I would love to see singers, who have been meticulously honing their craft under the radar, be given the opportunity for discovery through the American Idol process. Season 7 did all this and more and this is why the Season 7 American Idol Summer Tour was such a success.
And, “can” the guitars. Enough already! Generally, it takes away from the art of singing and singing truly is an art when developed correctly.
Okay, I’ve had my say. Time to add yours and/or any American Idol news that has surfaced throughout the blogosphere. Have fun but, remember to be respectful and intelligent in your commentary. Together we can change the face of American Idol here at MasterclassLady.Com.
