    How many of you enjoy American Idol?

    My sister-in-law and I really get into it! We sometimes call each other during the commercials to discuss how good or bad someone did.

    Isn't that awful for 2 women in their 50's??

    My husband comes through the room, and just shakes his head. He doesn't get why we enjoy a show like that so much.

    It give me something to look forward to each week. I also like Dancing with the Stars.

    Anyway, I'm glad it's about to get started again!! When you don't feel well all day it's fun to have something light hearted to look forward to.

    Dear Kinsie,
    I love that show, and I'm 68!
    I wait for it every week and really enjoy seeing the young singers mature and develop as time goes on.

    It is a welcome change from the news and all the viciously gory murders that are on TV.

    Have you heard the CD "Il Divo"? It is a project of Simon Cowel's, and is 4 tenors from different parts of the world, singing love songs in beautiful harmony, with wonderful musical accompaniments. A really classy and moving recording!

    Thanks for this thread. I really like having a chance to talk about things other than how bad I feel. :)

    Hugs,
    Terry

    Yes, in deed I've heard of IL DIVO! I have all their CD's, and never go a day without playing their music.

    It's almost unbelievable that anyone can sing like that!!

    Can't wait!! We even have a pool going at work.. We all put in 10 bucks.. when it hits the final 12 we draw names and the lucky person with the winning idol gets the pot!

    Loved it before.. but should be even more fun with the pool!

    This is one of the few programs that my husband & I both enjoy. It gives me something to look forward to. I was a Bo fan last year but Carrie has done a great job. So many of the contestants have improved their lives and that is great.

    I went to the American Idol Tour the year that Fantasia won. We talked my brother into driving us to Dallas to see it, but once was enough for him. My sister-in-law, and I really don't like to travel just the two of us, so if we happen to find someone else that wants to go, we might give it another try.

    I would certainly have liked to have gone last year.

    But we also like Lost, so I generally have to tape that show. I'm watching Surface, Invasion, Lost, AI, and As The World Turns (soap).

    I haven't gotten into Dancing with the Stars or the Ice Skating one.
