IMO, everyone on American Idol is famous for being horrible! Sanjaya just had the best hair
Well, I shouldn't say "everyone"...but basically, and kep in mind that I'm a classically trained musician with almost perfect pitch (which is the reason I don't WATCH American Idol...it gives me big headaches), the really good singers get voted off fairly earlier and the "hotties" and controversial ones stay on and win. IMO, you're not an "artist" or a "musician" or a "singer" until you've had some training, understand at least BASIC music theory (we're not talking Shenker analysis here) and can read and write your own music! I've been training for like 14 years and will never have the exposure these folks do, despite my infinitely superior abilities. Well, I can't sing. But I can at last read music!
:deepbreath: Ok, ok. I've calmed down now. This show is one of my BIG pet peeves...can you tell????
