I have to admit… I haven’t watched Idol for the last two seasons. I really did try the season after we were introduced to Adam, but I just couldn’t get into it.

After six seasons of following Idolas a critic and unashamed enthusiast, I’ve finally found myself truly bored while watching the show. Not even the soul ministrations of my latest favorite, third-place finalist Joshua Ledet, could cure my disaffection.”
