our american idol

do you watch american idol? i usually don't, but this season, i started watching with my girls, because of blake. he is from bothell, washington, but not only is he from near us, he is a friend of my daughter and her boyfriend. he went to the high school that is just down the road from us...it was very sweet, they had up on the reader board in front of the school, "blake lewis our american idol" how cool is that! even cooler... yesterday they had a parade in downtown bothell for him! i saw the banners up in the evening when i was on my way to bellydance class, and i tried to get a photo of it, but the picture came out really cruddy, so i'm not posting it.

my daughter's boyfriend is a drummer, and he was in the band 'the panda conspiracy' for a long time. (but not anymore) blake sometimes would perform before them, and after, he would hang out with my daughter, as she is the good girlfriend and attends lots of his performances, and then be sitting alone while he was up performing. so blake would come and sit with her, to keep her company sometimes.

now it is getting close to the end...do you watch? who is your favorite?

I don't watch this season like I used to. I usually flip back and forth between channels and sometimes I don't even watch the results show. It's just got too much filler for me. But I love Blake, he's talented and different. I also like Jordan. But you know, these days it doesn't really matter if you win. I think if you're in the top 5 you pretty much guaranteed a career.

I concur about Blake. He is fun to watch (and fun that he is local as well). Jordon is probably my favorite female singer - but then again, I have missed the last couple of weeks while I was out of the country (and my daughter 'forgot' to tape it for me).

Did I miss much?

manuela ~ yes, they do have a lot of 'filler', don't they!? but i do have to watch the results! i agree...think they are pretty much guaranteed a good deal if they are the top finalists. my daughter says they get to go on an 'american idol tour', that's pretty good!

tara! yay! you are back! welcome home! melinda is my favorite, but jordan is really cute...people keep telling my youngest daughter that she looks like jordan, and it annoys her. i told her, 'don't be annoyed, it's a compliment...jordan is really cute!' you missed jon bon jovi! that was pretty good!

but, i was WRONG! the parade is TODAY! and right now, my daughter is caught in the 'parade traffic'...and not happy about it!

Way to go! I have not watched American Idol; (as of yet! LOL!); however, congrats to Blake and to all who know him!(nice that he is from our part of the world; the beautiful northwest!)

Lovely too, about your daughter and Blake enjoying a friendship!

Gina

P.S. Hope you have a Happy Mother's Day!

How cool is that!!
I really like Blake. I think he has been my favorite male singer.

Jordan is probably my top choice overall.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend,
Kimberly :)

My niece watches this - I think she was mentioning this guy only ( I think he is the only guy now left and is in top 5....may be I am wrong.

And how cool to know the people in real life those who are making big !!

Oh,Cindy I love this story! Well obviously,the big sha-bang was last night,but my 2 ABSOLUTE favorites were the final 2,LOVED Blake,and think he will probably do better without that title hanging on him,have you noticed the girl winners do so much better than the boy winners?
