  • 'American Idol' 101

    In years past, I've seen the last 15 minutes of some of the final shows to see who wins, but not knowing who's who, I didn't really care one way or another.

    This season, mostly because I hate being left out of the water cooler conversation, I decided early on to watch every episode, from first auditions to finale, and I even hope to buy tickets to see the Top Ten Idol contestants when they go on tour this summer.
