This season of American Idol got you down? Are the pitch problems irking you more than normal? Does it sound like karaoke instead of a new artists displaying their talents? Were you bored with the boys and thought the only redeeming quality of the girls' performances were the short skirts?
Although we usually love American Idol, we skipped a few weeks while watching the Olympics. So when we were watching AI this week and were just completely bored with it - so bored, in fact, that we fast-forwarded through most of the music - we wondered if our stint with the Olympics just left us disconnected from the contestants.
And then it hit me: it's all Adam Lambert's fault.
Last season had a ton of talent. Danny Gokey, Kris Allen and Scott MacIntyre (the blind dude) come to mind. But Adam Lambert was by far the number one reason why we tuned in every week. He had a great voice, he had stage presence, and he made every song sound completely new and interesting.
The problem with this season is that there's nobody like that. And we got accustomed to being blown away every week. We got complacent.
And now we're bored. And it's all Adam Lambert's fault.
Lambert sings a song called, "Whataya Want From Me?" Well, Lambert, I want you to go back in time and not have been so awesome, so that I could still enjoy American Idol.
Damn you, Lambert! It's all your fault!
