    I forgot all about this show.  They came to my hometown.  I have a feeling this season is going to suck.

    I’ve pretty much watched every year, I don’t know if I can take another year of this. It just seems to get worse.

    Why do I have the feeling that the first person who appeared on the first episode is going to end up being the winner?  (And it’s probably just the paranoiac in me, but why do I also have the feeling that it’s going to turn out that the reason he looks so young is because he really is under 15, but since he’s probably a shoo-in for a record contract even if he doesn’t win (if Idol’s label doesn’t snap him up, the one Simon Cowell represents will) and that’s the only real prize on the show, it’s not going to matter that much?)

    Meanwhile, did anybody else notice that between the time Colton Dixon showed his golden ticket to his family and when he showed it to the camera when exiting the building, it mysteriously had an audition number added to it?

    So far, this season is looking good and very promising. I am already anticipating great fun and drama come Hollywood week.

    Last night’s episode was a waste of time.

    That’s funny – the announcement of the finalists is on March 1.  Assuming there are 11 performance weeks, that means the finale would be around Thursday, May 17, rather than its “usual” time of the Wednesday either right before or right after Memorial Day (I assume either the ratings season or May Sweeps “officially” ends on a Wednesday, which is why they move the final week to Tuesday-Wednesday).

    Is there some sort of “Idol Gives Back” or other non-elimination show planned for this year?
    Or perhaps they want the last Tuesday in May Sweeps open for a two-hour special Nationals / Graduation (and possibly Wedding(s) and/or “Oh, look, Quinn didn’t get a scholarship and can’t afford to go to Yale, so she’s going to California University (no, wait, that was 90210) Lima University with the rest of the graduating seniors (and, after next season, the rest of the students plus Will and Sue when they find a way either to get them fired or to destroy the high school, probably because of a cheerleading stunt gone horribly wrong)”) episode of Glee?

    (Or, what I think is more likely, one of:
    (a) “America, these are your 12 finalists…except that (insert the name of somebody one of the producers wants to win – “hey, it worked for The X Factor, didn’t it?”) is a finalist as well, and this year, there will be no double eliminations except following the save”, or
    (b) “There will be two saves available this year, and for the first one, there will be only one elimination the following week”)
