you are not alone ...Tina_H_V said:Well, it has happened.
13 minutes into the second hour of tonight's episode of American Idol...I became bored.
I got so bored, that I walked away from my main unit and into my second unit to watch the rest via SDTV.
By now, AI had gone to shorter episodes.
But now, FOX appears to be stretching these episodes out--as if the network has nothing else to roll out in the way of a new hour-long drama or a half-hour sitcom.
Is this happening to anyone else besides me in realizing, pray tell, what is going on?????
Well, you're wrong because I know and like most of Kelly Pickler songs. She's just as good, if not better than Carrie Underwood in my opinion and I really like seeing her on the Country music shows.Hanson said:I personally don't mind the length (it's better than the rushed feeling when they're trying to squeeze in another show). But after weeks of complaining that the show is too old fashioned, they come up with a current decade night, and then proceed to sings songs I've never heard or heard of. It's really hard to jump in and accept new music without a few listens. so most of the performances went over my head in a way, and I don't remember most of the show as a result. You won't find too many posters here who know any Kellie Pickler songs much less the one Skylar sang. I've heard that Colton song before, but then again, it's Colton, so I hate it. So if you haven't been keeping up on current music other than toe dipping into top 40 radio or buying albums from specific bands, you may approach the show the same way a tween looks at it when they have a Billy Joel night.
I agree with some, but disagree on other points here. Yes, it can work against them, but I do NOT want to see them just pick songs that are current or more in their age range. Most of that music I don't listen to or care about and also I think it shows how well they can adapt to different genre or times in different music categories. Just letting them choose anything would be horrid, but they can make it better by letting them choose a different artist than just one, but from that same time period. So, if they don't know or like Billy Joel for their song choices, they can choose someone else in that same time that would be just as popular.Josh Dial said:There, I've edited the post to reflect the establishing of a short form. Apologies for the confusion--after 9 seasons, I was simply using the abbreviation the fans use. Sorry!
I think Idol seriously needs to think about moving away from some of the standard operating procedures. First of all, no more oldies/retro "themes." No mo years of their birth, no more 80s, no more no matter how popular they were. While every so often there is a gem or two, most of the performances are nowhere near on the same level as the more modern song choices.
I would also like to see the band back on the stage. I don't mean some lonely sax player or a guitarist plugged into a sad-looking amp, all by himself. The *whole* band. While some "stars" hide the band off to the side or whatever, most just sing right in front of them. More often than not, it helps the artist relax and get into the performance more.
Jeffery, I make misstatements and factual errors so many times and you want to call me out on this? I don't think my statement:Originally Posted by Jeffery_H /t/317806/american-idol-season-11/120#post_3916174
