American Idol – Season 6

This week the gun fired, the gates opened and the top 24 came out running… hmmm, walking… hmmm limping…

Hey, I know they were crawling with the breath-taking speed of a snail race. Thus far, this probably has been one of the weakest seasons yet and excruciatingly boring.

Even though the numbers are still astronomical for the program, my gut feeling is that the concept has run its course.

So far this has to be the year of the girls, unless there are some surprises in the future. It IS early in the season and nerves would have to be raw for the contestants. Maybe the comfort level will increase and a true contender will come out of no where and overtake the pack, but I’m not holding my breath.

Strictly my opinion, but the ones to watch this year, in each gender:
