sucky season?...

AOL asks the question, not me. And they're giving reasons why it does. Suck, that is.

And for once, I actually agree with AOL. And here I've been blaming it on my letdown after the great fifth season.

It's always nice to know one is not alone.

They nailed it - especially with #1. When Paula was crying and slobbering and going on and on about Elliot - That's good TV! And Melinda peaking early and bringing it every week - our idols can't be perfect. The only way this season can salvage some entertainment is if there's a surprise elimination this week - and really, would it be a surprise if any of them left this week?

I agree that the biggest reason is the lack of diversity of talent. All the guys except Blake sound the same. All the girls also have about the same style, too, except that Melinda is clearly the best of the lot. Without true rock and country singers, the show creeps along.

And speaking of unforgetable stories, how about last season when we learned that Kelly Picker was abandoned by her mother, ther father has been in jail most of his life, and that she was raised by her grandfather. Now that's human interest!

I definitely agree that the show needed more diversity of singing styles, but not necessarily nasaly.
While I find the fake fights between Ryan and Simon annoying, I would hardly call it homphobic. Someone is wearing their skin stretched a little too tight. It's a little closer tow WWE without the "wrastlin'".

But JR, nasally is a form of singing. We learned that this year. :o)

Apparently, we also learned that a really bad falsetto is also a form of singing from Robin Thicke! My dog is still howling and she't been dead for three years.
Put him in the "Thicke" of the auditions and he wouldn't make it to Hollywood, much less the top 24. This silliness of having these guest entertainers (?) on results night has to stop. We are at the point in the show that things are too serious to be interupted by the likes of Akon, Fergie, or Robin Thicke.
