When America voted A Rod2 off of American Idol during the first week, I had no choice but to quit the show. If you don't know who A Rod2 is, then you don't follow me or @stacegots on twitter. And that's a shame for you. @stacegots is a twitter legend. And me, well, I walk in the shadow of her greatness.
For those of you wondering, A Rod was Ashley Rodriguez. And she had it all. The looks. The voice. The sense of style.
Turns out I got duped.
She came out the first week America could vote and took a nose dive. It was like someone was paying her. I watched from the sidelines, helpless, knowing I'd have some explaining to do to my twitter followers. Normally, I'd tweet in real time while watching the show. But not that night. Instead, I waited until morning to wipe the egg off my face.
So they voted her off and I quit the show for five days. I told anyone who'd listen to me, "oh, I quit watching. The show really stinks this year. Ellen isn't being funny. Kara is annoying. And nobody can sing. The one girl who could sing is already off the show, woe is me."
But then it happened. Tuesday night came. I tried to pretend I was going to watch Biggest Loser (I heart Jillian & Bob), but my finger pressed 705 on the remote. And there I was. Watching again. Criticizing the judges. Hating the singing. Torturing myself and everyone in my living room. Until suddenly, Siobhan!
Shame on the editors of this show! They did such a shitty job getting us psyched for the contestants this year. Siobhan flew under the radar through the first 2 months of this crappy season. But then POOF! Like a totally loose cannon, she blew through my screen!
Siobhan. I can't remember her last name right this second. But eventually I will. Eventually, WE ALL WILL!
Just when I thought I was out (wait a minute, I am out), they pulled me back in!
ps-and Ellen is getting funnier...
