The final season of American Idol will begin on Wednesday, January 6th. Will you be watching? My contempt for JLo knows no bounds and could discourage me from tuning in, but I'll watch because I'm hoping that lots of contestants from previous seasons will appear as guests.

That was a pretty good start. My favorites were the Indian girl, the girl from Kosovo, the guy with the pregnant wife, and the guy they said might be too dark for the viewers.

I was surprised by the story of the husband/wife team with the cute baby. The wife was so cheerful and bubbly until she lost their competition and her husband won, at which point she turned sour and tried to make him feel guilty for her failure. It was weird to watch.

The whole Kanye/Kim stunt was a waste of time. Does every show have to have an appearance by one of the trashy Kardashians or someone related to them?

Two more hours of auditions tonight. I was shocked when I saw Taylor Hicks last night because he looks so old. It's hard to believe he's only 39.

Great second night! Much better than the first. My favorite tonight was Melanie Tierce, the girl who gave JLo "goosies." As much as I hate it when JLo talks about "goosies," that's the only way I can distinguish this girl from the rest. She didn't have an interesting back story, and she didn't do anything quirky, but she had a lovely voice that hit all the notes effortlessly. In that sense, she reminded me of Jewel and Haley Reinhart.

A lot of the girls tonight were quite impressive. I really liked Olivia Rox, the girl whose parents are rock stars, too. I also liked the former Miss Alaska and the girl who auditioned last, whose mother had just come home from military service overseas.

Among the guys, the one that impressed me the most was the guy from the famiy farm with the twangy accent who surprised everyone by singing rhythm and blues instead of a country song.

I agree that last night was better. What's with all the girls and not many guys? I'm sure they are out there...... and not just from a farm..

I saw something in a chat room about Sonika Vaid, the pretty Indian girl from the first night, that said she had been on The Voice in season 4, and then I remembered her Voice audition. I remember that she had sounded really good to me, but not one coach turned around. Of course, after she finished singing and they all turned around, they were kicking themselves for not turning because she was such a pretty girl. They urged her to come back in the future. Ever since then, every time I've watched the blind auditions on each new season of The Voice, I've wondered whether the pretty Indian girl would be coming back to try again.

Here's an interesting video by Jax. She sounds so sour on the whole American Idol experience.

I chose the version with the lyrics captioned because they're a little difficult to understand otherwise. She seems to imply at the end that she would have won if the producers hadn't disqualified voters who supported her. Truth or delusion?

After drooling all over her all season, Scott Borchetta never did give her a recording contract. She financed this video with her own money.

More power to her. I must admit Im kind of glad this is Idol's last year. We've heard too many horror stories to my liking.

I was annoyed when I saw Scott Borchetta bragging about all the work he's doing with Nick Fradiani. Nick won the title last season. Why isn't his album out already?

This week's auditions were much more promising than last week's. Last week the judges kept surprising me by handing golden tickets to people that weren't that good.

It was sad when they turned off the lights after the last audition, but I'm glad they're over because I was getting more and more annoyed at JLo for talking to Harry during so many of the auditions. What's wrong with her????

I think they deliberately let some thorough as they know they will be eliminated in Hollywood. They haved to make the contestants fit the TV show......Just my opinion...
