We are approaching the final 12. American Symbol 2006 is pulling all stops and as Randy Jackson said, “We’ve got hot dogs.”
My sweetheart and I can’t resist the temptation to look glamorous as we sit and watch each night. In fact, even my 3 and 4.5-year-olds love what they call “singing shows.” Amidst all this attention, I’m confused. Why? Similar setup across the board, same judges choice of jersey, same Ryan Seacrest. The dialogue between Seacrest and Simon Cowell is also unsurprising. We see it coming pretty far. Paula Abdul is usually the cutest, given her pro youthful-like sexiness. She wonders who is actually cleaning, either her or Cory Clark. Randy Jackson offers “it was aaailight” or “it was dark in parts”. Or shout “dog pound” or comment on their laughs, chortels and chuddles. I really don’t know what you mean. Next year, we need the decryption key for Jackson’s language. Also, Cowell actually uses completely truthful, sometimes ruthless, and always “shocking” methods.
In fact, I wonder why I’m listening to a show that makes singers with guts, lust, minimal american shirts skills, and multifaceted presence from nearly every corner of American socioeconomics into icons of global pop.
Actually, I thought about it. I think it has something to do with that too. Deal: Overall, we look at ourselves or who we thought we needed or who we had or risked becoming some kind of candidate. It also provides a unique opportunity to share their fantasy of becoming the next American icon, the next pop icon.
First diversity, an icon we can all identify with. Ace Young is too good to be taken seriously as a young, talented singer and probably better as a performer at 25. The other half said, “That’s great.” I am not prepared to disagree with the prospect because that would obviously be inappropriate. I know you are right. That’s for sure.
Then you should check out Mandisa. No doubt huge, but the young lady can sing. She looks like Aretha Franklin and has a beautiful smile. We cannot resist the temptation to please Him.
Bucky Covington too. He has a tough, a little Southern, a little Texan attitude. She’s actually covering the segment because there couldn’t be another long-haired blonde in a rancher’s hat.
Paris Bennett has so many of his looks that it’s questionable if he’s really that kind of person. He really knows how to pretend. I thought she was really cute but now I know she wants to win this and is hot.
