One Thing I'd Like to Change about American Idol 5

The changes that were made for AI 4 were hit or miss for me. I like the fact that the age limit was raised, and the Ford pimpmercials had a higher production value, but I missed the cheesy group medleys and the themes that were actually themes. Here's my proposal for a change that I'd like to see for AI 5:

There should be a cage of angry lions just offstage. If a contestant is singing a sad and/or angry song, and is smiling throughout the performance (a la Carrie Underwood in Piece of My Heart), the lions should be released. I guarantee the smile will be wiped off their faces pretty quickly. This could also be used if a contestant is completely bastardizing an awesome song (a la Carrie Underwood in Piece of My Heart).

*Yes, I know Carrie was singing Faith Hill's version of the song. While I've never heard Faith's version, I can imagine how soulful and poignant it is. Release the lions on both of them, I say!


Changes made to the blog in the past few days: Added some pictures, fixed it so that it shows up correctly in IE (don't know how I did it, but it works now...I hope...), changed the time stamp to the correct time zone so I don't have to change it every time (which caused the times on my previous posts to be incorrect, but I don't care enough to change it. If you care, just think of it as 3 hours earlier.)

I take it you don't like Carrie? :) I'm glad she won...I couldn't stand the thought of looking at Bo forever...his hair and teeth just grossed me out...although when he sang that one night I did kinda get chills. He had his nights I suppose... :) Love the lions idea...we should put them on the stage anytime Gwen sings as well. ;)

jennifer - Were'd you get that idea? I think Bo is gorgeous! His teeth are bad, but that's fixable. You just don't like him because he's from Alabama :-). Heh heh...good idea about lions for Gwen

P.S. The pic looks good :-)

feather - I deleted one of my posts (i had tried to use html and it screwed the whole thing up) and now it works. I use Firefox at home so I didn't notice it was messed up till I got to work.

I like the lions idea--maybe there could be incremental sets of punishments--if someone is flirting too outrageously with Paula, a wolverine is dropped on their head, for instance. Forget the words to a song--drop a racoon in their pants...

I'm sure PETA would object though.

(btw--the final paragraph is really tiny and hard to read in netscape on my mac)

LOL...and screw PETA. Fixed the final paragraph...it was supposed to be tiny but I didn't realize it was unreadable.
