I wonder if the "journalist" who wrote this article
was paid directly by American Idol, or did the money have to flow to THR first? Not only was it "a shocking twist" (who could have ever imagined they would do such a thing!!!), "the talent pool of men this year is unbelievable," and "the girls are the strongest batch of singers we have seen in years."
Gee, maybe we need ten of these singing shows on the air with three seasons a year, because the talent seems to be getting better and better! I'd swear I only saw about 20 minutes of this season, but did I really hear Randy Jackson say that this was the best talent they've ever had? Or was I just having a flashback to season 10? Or Season 9? Or Season 8? Or Season 7? Or Season 6? Or, well, maybe it was one of those seasons.
