Okay, so it has only been one episode of the 10th season but I have to say I LOVED the show last night. It’s a whole new show!
First, I thought I was going to hate Steven Tyler and J.Lo as judges. Specifically Steven Tyler. After last night’s show, Steven is my favorite one! He’s just the right amount of quirky balanced with professionalism. I would never have expected to find myself liking Steven Tyler in any capacity.
J.Lo was great too. She’s VERY likable, and sweet. I need to remove her from a performer while she’s on this show because I don’t like her music or her performing, but that’s sort of a whole different thing than judging a talent show. So, personality points: J.Lo is a homerun!
Randy…why are you still there? I was bored to tears with everything he said.
Lots of heart-warming, realistic stories in last night’s episode that really made me like the show in a way I’ve never liked it before. Gone are the days of Simon Cowell being a total ass. Gone are the days of them bringing young boys with special needs on to the show for millions of people in America to laugh at. Gone are the days of judges who have no expertise in the field of music.
I hope Idol keeps this up! It’s nice to like this show again for great reasons!
