    i find myself watching American Idol with my parents from time to time. and i am amazed by one thing each time.
    and it's my question for you.

    why do these wannabes choose the wrong friggin' songs?
    i mean, you got a pre-pubescent kid whose voice hasn't cracked yet trying to sing blues like Joplin, You got Sling Blade trying to sing like Seal, it's a train wreck of stupidity.

    really, we don't see Nordic Death Metal bands trying to sing like Mariah Carey or Tiny Tim doing Pantera's "Walk", so why do these morons try it each time?

    /question and mini rant

    I would be willing to bet that many of the singers that are the terrible bad ones are either plants by the producers to get people watching the beginning of the season, or know they are bad and play it up to get on TV.
