Replacing the old with the new

I have been a fan of American Idol since the show started. I saw the very first season, and my husband and I have been watching it ever since. I know alot of people don't like it, but I do. :P I like real music...I'm not saying I don't like rock & roll or anything like that. But I like music that is REAL music. Not just screaming and saying off-the-wall shit like....i dont know...whatever! lol I also like the 'hutzpah' and ferocity of those kids. They take brutal criticism, endure under the stress of constant competition, while making bonds of true love WITH their competition, they sing their hearts out, they take criticism by the judges every week, they are judged by all of America every week, and they're just kids. Hell, my daughters feelings get hurt if I call her a pain in the ass! Not only that, some of them do sing very, very good. Until last night, I don't think I would have ever given up or replaced American Idol with anything else.


I'm also a huge Ozzie Osbourne fan, from the day. Back then, Ozzie was the king of off-the-wall shit, and is still pretty bold, and I really, really think he and Sharon are cool. Well, last night, I was forced to pick between American Idol and Osbourne's Reloaded...and Ozzie won. :)

It was great, and my husband laughed our asses off. They did some incredible stuff to people. Like...paying someone to kiss someone for $500. They brought up this 30ish guy and this cute 30ish girl, blind-folded him (no doubt with him assuming he was going to be kissing the cute little 30ish girl), then switched the girl with a woman who appeared to be at least in her 70's. LOL. I won't go into the gruesome details cuz I'm really not into writing, but after it was all over and done...and the blind-fold was removed and the guy saw who he was actually kissing...Sharon asked him if he was ready to do anything else for $500. LOL...he said no. There was a wedding on the show. A real life, honest to goodness wedding!! Only, the conditions of the wedding were surreal, and I'm sure my Gorean and BDSM friends wouldn't have gone for it. But it happened, and after the "I do's" were said, Ozzie sprayed white foam over them, his family, the audience...hell, everyone as the song "It's a nice day for a white wedding" played. I still laugh thinking about everything that the Osbourne's did last night...and if it has to, it's definately replacing Idol, too. At least for as long as it lasts. :)

Ooo We're an American Idol family too, didnt watch it last night though, fell to sleep early. That new show sounds funny and interesting. We have that dvr or whatever it's called so we could even tape it next time.

We also watch America's Next Top Model, love watching the girls cat fight lol. Master isn't so interested in that one, but daughter is and she got this one into it a few seasons ago.

Thanks for the mention of the show,
can't wait to get a peek at it.

LOL...if you like odd, eccentric, and just down-right REAL, you'd love Ozzie, twinkle! I laughed out loud watching it and Ozzie laughed out loud doing it! LOL

On a different note though, I've got my hopes up for Danny? Gokey, and that goth looking kid on Idol. The goth looking kid (who did a country song that sounded like a arabic song lol) reminds me of David Cook from another season. Danny Gokey, I feel, is singing to his recently deceased wife. I cry whenever I watch him sing, knowing the hurt he must be going through, but am amazed that thru that hurt, he grabs its passion and channels it thru song.

Louve, how extremely beautiful you are. The long pointy ears, the long pointy nose, the long pointy teeth, even the long pointy whiskers. Makes a werewolf crazy, don't you know.
