THIS is American Idol!

Just when I started to miss Seacrest a little (I didn't know it was possible, either), American Idol is back with a 2 night, 4 hour season premiere. Good Lord. 4 hours?!?! I don't know if I can handle that much crappy singing (I really only like Idol after the Hollywood round), but I know a lot of people watch for the schadenfreude of the early episodes.

According to Nigel Lythgoe, the focus this year is back on the singers and not so much on the celebrity "mentors" (which is probably a good thing. I don't know that Gwen Stefani and J-Lo should really be telling anyone how to sing. Ass shaking, yes. Singing, not so much). I just hope this season has more Kelly Clarksons/Chris Daughtrys and less Carmen Rasmusens/Sanjayas.

At least there is a show to fill my evenings...I can only watch The Devil Wears Prada on HBO so many times.

Don't worry, kids. He's never too far away.

I don't care who knows it, I'm excited!

Then again, I get excited about a new laundry detergent scent. It's just my way.

Seacrest freaks me out. Count me as one who only likes American Idol when its bad.
