CD Review: The Worst Thing Is The Best Thing Ever

Could this creature be the next American Idol?  It can't be any worse than some of these bozos.

Could this creature be the next American Idol? It can't be any worse than some of these bozos.

This is a pretty down week as far as CD releases, so in lieu of something worthwhile, I’m offering a few thoughts on some of the “talent” on American Idol, beings tonight is the kick-off show.

The best thing about this show is that even a tone deaf idiot can tell the difference between someone who is really amazing and someone who is really amazingly bad.  American Idol always delivers quality television.  It’s like a sweet case of diarrhea.  It comes from both ends.  In the beginning it’s like a drug.  I can’t stop watching just how terribly horrid some of these guys are.  I can’t believe that some of these people think they can sing.

Repeat:  I can’t believe some of these people think they can sing. 

And they are so serious about it.  And they think they are doing something so great.  Something so memorable (well, it’s definitely memorable).  

Then you see utter disbelief on these contestants faces when the judges just bash them.  Unfathomable.

The show delivers at the end with, surprisingly, great performances.  I didn’t really get into this show until last season, and I tell you what, three or four of those finalists were slamming good.  I thought both Carly Smithson and Michael Johns were just as good on any given night as the two Davids.  However, the beauty of American Idol prevails again, and who America wants is who America gets.

The fact that American Idol is just a big popularity contest isn’t really the worst thing.  In fact, if anything, it is the American Dream at it’s finest.  Every no talent wannabe can have their shot.  If they can do one thing better than everyone else, they could become the most famous person in the world for a short time, and possibly a rich and famous star for the rest of their lives.  It gives people hope when their lives might not have much hope in them.  And even when the judges rail hard on these terrible, awful singers, these people still come in droves.  You can see the hope in their eyes.  And that’s when the worst thing becomes the best thing.
