So, here's the burning question of the day for those of us (wo)man enough to admit that we watch American Idol:
Was Mary simply
a)an actress looking to get noticed
b) just another person looking to cash in on the William Hung gravy train
c) a mentally disturbed individual?
I'm thinking it was (b) but I know a lot of people leaning towards ©. And if the answer is ©, is that explotation or entertainment?
Oh, I'm not going to lie. I was definitely entertained by Mary. In an uncomfortable sort of way.
My favorites from last night: the Rasta guy (good voice, nice charm) and the rock guy (not a great voice but at least his back story would provide the drama that last season was clearly missing).
Hated: The chick who sold her wedding ring to pay her way to the auditions. I don't know why, just a bad vibe I got from her and her stringy husband.
Best part of last night: Ogling Mark McGrath. Hated his band, love his look.
Last thought: Is it me, or did all the singers sound no better than average? And when will someone break out of the mold and choose a really offbeat song?
Update: Is it me or does Paula seem, ummm.....subdued? No, not subdued. Sedated. That's it. No, no. Maybe like.... she's been shot with an elephant tranquilizer? Yea.
