I always get completely addicted to this show in its later stages but am getting sick and tired of the long drawn out ‘bad audition’ stages.
In fact, more than sick and tired – tonight’s programme felt a bit like an end-of-the-pier freak show, and at times made for uncomfortable viewing.
But view it we did, because tonight’s auditions took place in Seattle.
Suffice it to say that I doubt very much whether American Idol will ever return here. Blog readers in the UK, if you watch the ITV2 highlights show you’ll start to understand what I’m up against here.
