AI may have run its course. We'll see with the top 12, but right now it's not looking too promising. Even the DJs on our local radio station said the judges must have picked a few of the contestants because they had to choose somebody. Seventeen people from 10,000 auditions were chosen in Minneapolis. Seattle doesn't look like it's going to be any better.
I'll still watch the show, cuz what do I have better going on in the evening?, but I doubt I'll enjoy it. I think the talented have other ways of getting famous now. Maybe they should just have YouTube Idol and let the world decide who even rates well enough to be a contestant.
Meh. Over it.
