American Idol has bred thousands of entertaining acts. It doesn’t matter if we’re watching the winners sing their hearts under the spotlight; It doesn’t matter if we’re watching the failed mutterings of tone-deaf cuckoos fail in the face of greatness. No matter what crazy act the reality show puts together, we’re glued to that television, asking ourselves the most important question of all:
“Why am I still watching this crap?”
In an effort to replace the irreplaceable Simon Cowell and the indispensable Paula Abdul, American Idol revealed the new judges early this morning at the Los Angeles Audition. Through clouds of shimmer and smoke, [lastfm]Aerosmith[/lastfm] frontman Steven Tyler and Pop Star [lastfm]Jennifer Lopez[/lastfm] entered The Forum and greeted the eager audition attendees with smiling faces.
So, just to clarify – the ferocious Brit critic will be replaced by the aged and confused rocker, while the glitter-clad diva will be replaced by the… glitter-clad diva. Hmmmm.
Honestly, it doesn’t matter who American Idol chooses to be their judges. Nobody watches the show for the arguments between these washed up celebrities. We watch American Idol for one thing, and one thing only.
When are you bringing [lastfm]William Hung[/lastfm] back?!
