I did it. I missed the whole thing.
I did not watch a single moment of this season’s American Idol.
I’ll admit it — I walked away when Simon Cowell did. I didn’t see a need for the show to continue. And when I heard who they hired to replace him, I didn’t feel any differently.
Now, friends have told me I screwed up. That this was the most talented group of contestants yet. That it was refreshing to watch a show where the judges strived to create a supportive environment. (But some have said it was all a bit too nicey-nice as well.)
Good lord — it’s Clay Aiken.
I didn’t miss a thing after all.
