I'm not sure if there is a person on the face of the planet that loves American Idol more than I do. Seriously, I look forward to 7PM on Tuesday evenings more than any other time during the week. It is kind of sick. Of course, we are hardly ever home in the evening so I usually end up watching the DVR version circa 9PM. Luckily, Kody enjoys it as much as I do. He likes to watch it in a peculiar way. He usually covers his face so he can "focus on the vocals" and he is not swayed by charming good Justin Timberlake looks (Matt!) or grossed out by their sad attempt at dancing (Megan Joy...I did not miss you a bit this week). I guess this helps him have more of an unbiased opinion? I personally love to experience AI with my ears and my eyes.
Anyway, last night I had a mini breakdown. I seem to be having those more frequently lately. We were watching American Idol and I was enjoying hearing everyone sing songs from the year they were born. I'm such a huge fan of music from the 80's so I was pretty pumped. We got through Danny, Kris, Scott...blah, blah, blah....and then we get to the good stuff, Matt Girard. Ok, I completely adore this boy. He plays the piano and he just melts my heart when he sings. I think he is fantastic. Plus, as I mentioned above, he bares a slight resemblance to my high school boyfriend Justin Timberlake. Did I say boyfriend? Maybe I meant obsession. Back on topic...Matt was fantastic. He sang "Part Time Lover". Kody and I were both giddy over it. Yes, Kody has a bit of man crush on him, but it purely for musical reasons...I think. I noticed that our DVR timer was nearing the 1 hour mark and Adam had yet to sing. "Oh my gosh, Oh my gosh, Oh my gosh...NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!". Yup, the lovely "Erase Now or Save for Later" screen pops up prior to my dear Adam's performance. I was at a loss. How in the world was I going to survive the evening without seeing what Adam came up with for this week?
Now friends, this brings me to the point of the story where you find out why I love my dear husband so very much. He always records weird shows and we never end up watching half of them. For some reason, Kody had scheduled the DVR to record the Fox series "Fringe" (Pacey!) every time it airs. We have never watched a single episode. Guess what came on right after American Idol last night? That's right! Fringe! We started up Fringe and it started with the last five minutes of American Idol which was all about my favorite contestant of all time, Adam. Some people love him, some people hate him, but Kody and I both think he is just utterly fantastic. I would watch him perform every night. Especially if he would sing "Mad World" to me every night. I have a feeling he likes the movie "Donnie Darko". "Mad World" plays through the last few scenes of the movie. It is such a haunting yet beautiful song. Quite fitting of Mr. Lambert. Once again, he was perfection. Disagree with me if you must, but that boy is crazy talented. I would like to hug him.
