Who's My Idol?

I think it's ridiculous that I feel so excited. And maybe I won't admit why I am excited, it's so embarrassing (and worldly to boot). But American Idol is starting today. Ew. I can't believe I just wrote that. Gross, that I like that show so much. Why? What makes it so fun to watch? Maybe it's because all those contestants are just real people, no different that you or I, except that they can sing. They come from little towns or big cities, grow up with zits and awkward idiosyncrasies. Some are proud and boastful and others are humble and bashful. Some love Jesus and others sing in bars. But anyway, the two hour premier is this evening, so I'm pretty syched. Isn't that dumb? To be looking forward to a stupid TV show? It has no relevance when it comes to eternity. God doesn't care whether you got to be "America's Idol" or not. He only cares about whether or not you believed on the LORD Jesus Christ. Whether you have accepted Him as your Savior and asked him to cleanse you from your sins. That's what really matters tonight. Not this stupid TV show that we will so faithfully watch for the next three+ months. So go live for Jesus, not for Simon.

powessWe never watched American Idol until last year. It is rather addicting, yes!

Last night's show was disappointing with all the showings of the bikini girl. Why do that have to make it so family unfriendly?

I know what you mean. I am not an Idol fan (mostly because I don't want to be addicted so I won't watch) but I have SEVERAL shows that I anxiously await and hate to miss, Like Lost, 24, Prison Break, and Heroes. I waste much too much time watching the TV

I agree, why did they have to spend so much time on the bikini girl?The rest of the show was ok.I am not really into it though but we were over at my Inlaws and they were watching it.Some of the show was quite comical!!

Bikini girl was quite disgusting. Why put all the emphasis on one girl's body? Come on people!! How degrading!
