Ladies and gentlemen, we have met this year’s American Idol. At least, I know who to root for now. Any guy who answers the question, “Why do you want to be the next American Idol?” with “I want to make David Hasslehoff cry” is the right man for the right job at the right time.
I know Simon has talked glowingly of him in interviews recently, but he can sing, he’s got a wicked sense of humor, and I like him. Chris Sligh is his name. Remember it.
All in all, it was an entertaining hour. I laughed out loud a few times. I think keeping it down to an hour really helps. Two hours of bad singers all at once is too much to handle, but mixing in some strong singers with the usual assortment of TV Camera Hogs and Self-Centered Clueless Ego Monsters is an entertaining hour.
Who stuck out in your mind last night? Who are you looking forward to seeing at Hollywood Hell Week?
