I'm disappointed. I used to love the show and set my schedule around it. I watched every Tuesday and Wednesday, without fail. There's so much about American Idol I love.
It gives the average person a chance at stardom. It makes "Crystal Bowersox" a household name.
It makes Andrew Garcia's interpretation of "Straight Up" a well-Googled phrase and a YouTube phenomenon.
For those like me who love ... love ... music, this show is like going into a candy store with no possibility of diabetic shock.
But, as I said, I'm disappointed.
