well Dr. L and I have been religiously watching this season of Idol but not as religiously posting. So far there hasn't been any shocking eliminations in Hollywood, because most of the hopefuls who got cut were borderline anyway (at least 90% of them).
We did think of a drinking game, whenever a contestant says they are a Worship Pastor or some variant thereof, you have to take a drink. Trust us, this season, you will be wasted.
I have to say the talent level is pretty high this season. Idol is determined to go out with a bang. And they are willing to go off into some weird directions, like with the Off-The-Grid cowgirl, who has a pretty voice but plays the upright bass like she's in a David Lynch film. I really think there are enough powerhouse singers that a lot of the quirky taken is going to get leveled out soon.
I hope you guys are all enjoying, and I would love to hear what you think!
Rubbertoe, keep your fingers crossed that we will get tickets! It would be great to see some of the shows again with you.
Who do you think will win this thing? Idol has been cagey about showing all of the singers, just like always. Have we ween the winner yet?

K here! Hello everyone, I hope you guys are still out there for our last go 'round with the blog. Can you believe it has been 15 years since Idol was first on the air?
We're going to try and have some special guest stars (J are you out there?) and we'll be gunning for tickets big time. Let's hope we get in to see some of the last few shows and we will blog about it here.
As far as this first episode went, Dr. L and I were impressed. It seems like Idol has some real talent on hand this time and we saw a couple of folks who really look like they could go far. Sonika Vaid was probably our favorite, followed by Lee Jean.
But I think a dark horse could be Shelbie Z from Sumiton (how can it be Idol without some powerhouse contestant from Alabama LOL!). Though I read she was on The Voice before? Could be some Idol tomfoolery…
There were quite a few other notable hopefuls and the usual Idol drama (thankfully they took it easy on the full-on whack-jobs, but I'm sure we'll see more of those). The most ridiculous moment was Kanye's "audition" -- I kept thinking, "I wonder if they are all imagining how they would tell him no if he was trying out for real?"
What did you guys think? Let us know! We will miss the blog so much next year so I hope we give it one last fun ride.
Here's to a great season, and looking forward to hearing from Rubbertoe here in 2016.
Dr. L & K out!
