American Idol, anyone?


I confess that I have been hooked on American Idol for awhile. There are a couple seasons I didn't watch but for the most part I have been a long time closet Idol fanatic. I guess not a "closet" fanatic anymore. Luckily, this year I am in very good company with my AI obsession. I know Brooke White so of course she is my top pick, and she's really good friends with some of my really good friends, so we all get to obsess over Brooke together! Yippee!! In past seasons there have been LDS contestants who have gotten pretty far, but I don't think any of them stand up to Brooke and David Archuleta talent-wise. Those two are totally going to go far! (Assuming David doesn't have anymore nights like last night). I love them both, but especially Brooke! She's so unique and beautiful and sweet, as well as an extremely talented singer/songwriter. The picture is from the viewing party Anneli and Jono organized for last night's performance.

(I know most of you who read my blog have almost this exact posting on your own blogs and I didn't plan to post on this subject, but how can I not when this has been taking up so much of my time latley? It's been 2 or 3 nights week for the past 6 weeks or more. Plus, on the nights she performs I stay up and vote forever. And since Gabrielle had this cute picture on her blog that I could steal and use on mine, there just seemed to be a lot of reasons to just go for it! Sorry to bore all of you who were there. But really, are we really going to get tired of talking about Brooke? I don't think so!)

Bekah called and told me all about it. I guess she's in the accesshollywood.com clip interviewing. Pretty cool.

You are in good company with your obsession. How can anyone not love Brooke? It was fun to see you last night!

I had no idea you were in such famous company. How exciting! We love Brooke at this house too- not because we are lucky enough to know her, but because we think she is sincerely talented. Hopefully she stays on for many more weeks. What a fun post.

It's so fun to see so many folks into "AI". I am a bit obsessive about it, I will admit. That party was fun, even if we couldn't hear a blessed thing! Here's the link to the full internet video. Let me know if it doesn't work and I will email it to you directly from the site. Man, BEWARE.....turns out I DID look as bad as I felt physically...yick! Oh well, I got on TV...woo-hoo! http://video.accesshollywood.com/player/?id=228086
