Attention, American Idol: The Greensboro-High Point metro area is up over 650,000 people. The Coliseum is huge — it had NHL hockey for a couple of years, and it frequently hosts the ACC Tournament. It’s not New York, but it’s not Mebane. (Look it up.)
I’m just thankful they didn’t have some stereotypical hick parade. Some decent singers, and some of the usual self-delusional people. In fact, I would’ve been disappointed if we hadn’t had a couple of good freaky Southerners representing.
Here’s what I want to see: A “Where Are They Now?” on all the contestants who walk out insisting that they’re going to be bigger than anyone else on this show, that they don’t need this show, that they’re going to be sorry, blah blah. I’d imagine most of them have learned their lessons, but it’d be fun to see the ones who talk about their “careers” at, oh, Macaroni Grill.
I just wish Sheriff Hege could’ve been around to arrest Ryan Secrest.
