American Idol Season 12 Kick Off

First off, I am not a huge fan of American Idol since the beginning. I just decided to follow this season just because I felt like watching a singing competition these days. Plus, I am very curious about how dear old Nicki Minaj behaves around certain kinds of people. Although, I am neutral about her - I don't love nor hate her (I am impressed with her bizarre style though). But I'm guessing since she's a little bit crazy, I'm gonna like her eventually.

For the judges, mehhh~ As implied, I am really fond of Nicki. She's got the attitude. On the other hand, I have never really liked Mariah since I have known music (I know she's one of the greatest singer of all time but that's just how I feel about her). Her and Nicki always bicker. I don't give a huge damn about Randy Jackson. Last but definitely not least, I have high respects for Keith Urban (he's who I like in the panel, by default).

AI 12 already aired two episodes within the past week - New York and Chicago auditions. There were good and bad singing, as usual but nothing really made me say "WTF, this person has stellar vocal abilities." You know what I'm saying? Also, it kinda occurred to me that some auditionees were horribly appalling, those that I think just got lost and decided to audition but there's no way in hell they can sing. Sometimes, I even think that they may just be "actors" who were paid just to make the show a little bit more amusing. I mean, they're really really bad. Even people I know who can't and never sing don't sound as bad. But, since the world is a weird place and it is filled with uniquely weird people, fine.

The main reason I decided on blogging about the show is because I was touched by the story of the last contestant in the Chicago auditions. Lazaro Arbos was born in Cuba and his family moved to Florida when he was 10. Lazaro has a speech problem. He started stuttering at the age of 6. He went through lots of speech therapies but not one helped. His case didn't improve, instead it just got worse. Despite this, he still auditioned and he really did a good job. When he sings, he doesn't stutter.

He is a true inspiration for me.

  12. Many news networks tease stories promising to give viewers "the latest information" and calling nearly any
    news that happened within the last hour "breaking news!" Stories constantly seem to be
    evolving, making viewers feel the necessity
    to be updated by the second, but often the facts of the story
    don't change - only the rumors.

    the organization support. In some cases configuration is also expected so that extra softwares can be utilised.
