You can certainly tell who the top twelve will be by how much time they spend hyping them, can't you?Except for that bridge jumping girl from the hills. No one is going to keep her down on the farm after her trip on the "areoplane to HOLLYWOOD!"
(I always wonder how those people who did all that celebratory jumping around, feel when they see the grunginess of Hollywood.)
Did you hear the way that one guy did "Straight Up"? Wow! He was great. AI is my guilty pleasure. I didn't watch it at all the first two years. Then the third year I discovered how funny the tryouts can be. I love Funny, so I watched only the tryouts for a couple of years. My granddaughter and I were watching when William Hung sang "She Bang" and our heads ripped around to look at each other in stunned silence. Then we laughed for about two weeks.
Then I moved to BFE so I began watching the whole thing.
Furthermore, I look forward to it.
Furthermore again, I mourn when it is over for the season.
