<i><b>THIS</b> is AMERICAN IDOL!</i>

By way of introduction ...

Hi , I'm Allison. My friends Josh and Lisa have been Idol fanatics from the VERY beginning and although I watched Idol regularly, I did not meet Josh or Lisa until season 4. But since then, Idol is our life. (Ok, that sounds kind of sad and is possibly a little over dramatic given that we are all VERY busy people with work and family and friends!) Perhaps we could say that Idol is a fun diversion from the everyday.

The blog is inspired by a friend I met last summer, Robert. He and I were at a conference together dealing with all things serious when we discovered that we were both huge Idol fans. (As a side note, Robert and I both love Dolly Parton and the song "Rocky Top" -- there could be no stronger bond between two strangers!)

Robert and his friends have an Idol list-serv that they post all of their thoughts and predictions. By special invitation, Robert has included me this year and I love getting the chance to hear what Robert and his friends way out west in sunny California think about Idol. I've been forwarding the list-serv e-mails to Josh so that he and I can discuss further.

Josh and I talked about doing our own list-serv and then that turned into this blog with our friend, Lisa.

We hope you enjoy our blog and that you share your own idle Idol thoughts with us!

Hey Allison:

LOVE this blog....I will definitely check it out weekly....
Reading your comments brought back fond memories of our bonding at that group dinner...I feel fortunate that I ended up sitting next to you...! (BTW...I youtubed Rocky Top Tenn...and got some interesting versions...still love that song though).

My bottom three are: Cook, Syesha and Hernandez. I think Cook leaves...outside chance of Syesha...I think stripper boy stays for another dance.
