Here's what I think: American Idol the Remix
I've long said that I should bet on shows like this because I have a knack for picking the winners and this year I got my wish because my office does an American Idol pool and I have elected to participate. But alas, now that I'm actually betting on the outcome I feel pressure like I've never had in past seasons. This pressure makes me almost livid watching the performance show because I know what order I think the contestants will leave in and when someone I expected to make it far in the season performs less than exemplary I find myself squirming. It probably doesn't help that I've told everyone in my office to watch out because I'm totally winning this pool, darn my highly competitive nature and confidence.
One last note from this week - how great is Scotty McCreerey? Any song he sings sounds like it could be on country radio this second. Although, I'm not gonna lie, when they said he was singing Garth Brooks my first thought went to "Thunder Rolls." That would have been bitchen, I totally pictured a stormy, rolling cloud back drop and some lightning action... and then I got it with Naima! I felt like Idol and I shared a brain for a moment.
It looks like it's going to be a long season for me, I'm counting on my top picks to rake in some high scoring points in the end!
