Idolatry on TV

Has anyone been watching American Idol on TV? I’m a big fan since last season, and this year it’s off too a bang. Reports show that the ratings are going through the roof in the US, contrary to earlier expectations.

It’s only the second week into the show, and it’s the early auditions. I can clearly see 4 different stages to the show – the auditions, the 2nd round, the heats and the last 12. Well, if you watch the show, you’ll know what I mean. If you’ve NEVER watched the show, just keep watching and you’ll understand.

This year, we have the usual bunch of contestants – ego-maniacs who cannot accept that they’re not the real Idol, average wannabes, crazy nut jobs, William Hung types looking for their 15 minutes of fame, etc…

And then there are the very talented ones, but it seems that it’s so very difficult to stand out when there are so many people just as talented as you in America.

There’s another episode one tonight. If I’m home on time, I’ll be watching.

Ironically, I’ve never watched a minute of Malaysian Idol. And not Akademi Fantasia either.
