Okay, so I hate American Idol--hate hate HATE it--as I do just about each and every "reality" show out there. Don't watch 'em, think they're one of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse, downfall of society as we know it, turns your mind to mush, all that stuff. I can't even stand the freakin' COMMERCIALS. The only thing I like about it is the mean guy, Simon, whose sole job is apparently to introduce delusional people to the concept of Reality. And that's only from watching clips of various train wrecks that happen to make the news and/or the commercials. I've always suspected Simon is one of those crusty realists who hides the proverbial heart o' gold behind his snarkiness, but I digress.
Having said that, with all the current brouhaha over the British version of the show--which also has the Simon guy on it--I finally broke down this morning and went over to youtube to watch the Susan Boyle clip.
If you haven't watched it, you really should. Once in a while, even reality television gets it right and does good.
Even Mojo, vicious, vicious creature that she is, got--okay, maybe just a little--choked up.
LOOK! LOOK! MOJO STUFF!
