I am, apparently, one of the few who has never really watched or otherwise gotten into American Idol. The few times I have accidentally flipped through it, I've usually encountered some who make my yodelling sound good, or otherwise remind me of a theorem about cats in a room full of rockers. Obviously, I've never really seen the final stages (other than one time when a local -- who has an excellent voice, I will admit), made it to the finals. I am also one of "those" people who have reservations about the cult of celebrity.
Therefore, I was delighted to find an Idol program that I liked, and heartily recommend you check out as well. My thanks to the producer for an excellent job.
