Anyone watching American Idol?

So far my favorite is the beatboxer, Blake Lewis. Here's a video of him doing a live show before Idol:

He beatboxes live and uses a loop machine so that he can make a beat on the fly and then sing over it. He's kind of like Kid Beyond (only not as good). Here's Kid Beyond:

I am so fortunate that I work the nightshift and have no freaking idea what you are talking about.

Couldn't a dollar bill be called an "American Idol"?

In lieu of drinking bleach, sure I'll sacrifice an irretrievable hour of my life frying a few dendritic spines

Gak! Nope. I always thought shows like that were kinda mean. I mean, if I wanted to laugh at bozos I'd just go to Walmart, right?

im living in Malaysia, and most of us WATCH American Idol, tee hee , If you watch Akademi Fantasia, then you will appreciate American Idol,
because there is this erm....winner I guess and he's fan is the most lowest self-esteem fans I ever know, eg: that guy can NEVER sing english song and hes FAN voted and he got no. 3rd in the best English vocalist. F*** off man, that guy cant even speak english and you are expecting him to sing a English song? If you hear his voice, Im pretty sure he wont even enter into American Idol

Pretty much I find American TV not worth the cost of the electricity need to run the TV. I find it incredible that more people vote for AMerican Idol nominees than vote for president.

if American Idol is not worth the cost of electricity then watching Akademi Fantasia is not worth owning a Sony Bravia LCD TV

Except for movies and the news, I find TV anywhere not worth the electricity. That's why having a big screen tv not worth the cost.
