  • 'American Idol' 101

    Although I consider myself current with pop culture, this is the first season I've watched "American Idol."

    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.
