Idol Addict

I admit it. I'm a total Idol Addict. I have been since day one, season 1. It's one of the only things on TV that I thoroughly enjoy. (oh..lest I forget "House, MD"!!!)I think it's my taste in music and my upbringing around music that draws me to American Idol each week. The anticipation and thrill of seeing each performer trying to get through one more week is addicting. My favourite is Taylor Hicks. There's something about his genuine approach to music and how he reaches out through it appeals to me. I 'hang around' a LOT of musicians. One of my closest friends is a hard-core musician. I am drawn to that 'type' of personality. I like the drive, determination and full immersion that a musician experiences while they are performing. It's like a drug for me; keeping me wanting more and feeling as if I am going through withdrawls when they stop. Taylor's performances do just that; Feed my addiction. I am left each week wanting more.

I hope that he's around to watch as the last weeks of American Idol wind down. I think that Chris will be the American Idol this season but I know that Taylor's career will be launched into a whirlwind and I simply cannot wait! He's my "A #1" Idol of all times! I am such an Idol Addict! (And OMG he's just SO FRIGGIN' CUTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) *Blush*

Had to fix a typo from my original post. LOL!

Well, at your suggestion, I TRIED to watch the show last night, but the puppy had other plans for me. LOL!

Is there any place online with video clips of him performing?


Your friend, the PC freak.

Puppies and babies always have other plans, don't they?!?!

Elliot should have been voted off. Paris did such a good job. I am a new watcher. I saw it in the past every now and again. I still have a hard time figuring out when it's on.
I love Taylor too and CHRIS! So so cute.

I have to favorite thing about A.I. is to see all the nutballs that *think* they can sing!! Then I don't watch it again!!!

I LOVE music too! So I ask myself, 'why then? Why don't you watch it??!" I'm clueless...

Ok, so I'm also an Idol freak, like you since Season One Day One. Perhaps it was my desire to be a singer ALL MY LIFE that feuls my desire to have SOMETHING to do with choosing a new AI - who knows. All I know is that I've chosen the winner every year but one (I'm sorry but Ruben should NEVER have WON that season) and I've got GREAT taste... Chris is probably the winner but I have to say my heart belongs to Taylor! LOL There's a part of me that needs to see a good ole Southern Boy who's got music in his SOUL to finally make it... yes I do know that Ruben is from Alabama. He's not got the Soul that Taylor has.

I'm quite enamored with Kat too so who knows. I think the top 3 will be Chris, Kat and Taylor - rather the top 3 SHOULD be Chris, Kat and Taylor.

And yes... lest we neglect any other show, I find myself irrisistibly drawn to House, MD each week and while I find him to be horribly abrasive, I do hope I have someone like him on staff if I ever end up with something odd, strange or perplexing.

Love ya girl!
