American Idol 8: On Expectations and Addiction

Has it been a year already? A mere two months had lapsed since the two Davids (Archuleta and Cook) released their respective febut albums and here's America's and probably the world's favorite talent show again, spearheading the search for the next big thing. Now get ready to be idolized.

This 8th season of American Idol is definitely a must-see. Last season is unquestionably the most succsessful season of the show, with most of the finalists potential and deserving winners. Had Brooke White auditioned in season 6, she could have won that thing (Love you Brooke!). And Ramielle Malubay could fave eclipsed the achievement of Jasmine Trias in season 3. Ha! Such a bias. But anyway, with David Cook raising the bar several notches up, much is expected to this year's would-be finalists.

A lot of changes will be seen as well.
First is the addition of Kara DioGuardi as a fourth judge. So what impact will she bring on the show? If three is a crowd, then will four be pandemonium? There will be no 'Idol Gives Back' due to the continuing economic crisis. There will be 36 semi-finalists instead of 24. And the Wild Card round returns. And probably the most anticipated of all is, what would be Paula's new blunder? Well, let's just watch to that.


I hate it. I've been LSS-ed by David Cook's version of 'Always Be My Baby' for more than a month and now that the 'Idol' mania is looming in the horizon again, I can;t help but be LSS-ed again. Talk about addiction. Sigh.
