I confess--I love American Idol! Are you with me?!


I confess--I love American Idol! My first experiences with Idol began when I was an R.A. in the dorms. There were no T.V.'s in our dorms, so Idol followers gathered in the lounge to watch their beloved show. Whenever I was on duty, I would catch a minute or two of the show, but overall thought these girls were cute but pathetic and were wasting their time.

Wow, how things have changed! This is the third season now that I've been a faithful follower of Idol! Here are a few of the sadly pathetic signs that I'm an Idol junkie:

-I almost never miss an episode, and if I have to, I am sure to record it
-I have skipped out on other, more important activities to watch it
-I successfully talked my cousin into skipping her night class pretty much every single week so we could watch Idol together
-I have an account with www.americanidol.com and, yes, I have actually posted on the forums
-And probably the most pathetic thing up to this point, which I just fulfilled tonight: I voted for David Archuleta 280 times!

I have a life and am not a total loser, I promise! Please comment and let me know that I'm not alone in my obsession! :)

*phew* It feels good to get that off my chest. I hope I still have friends after this post. :)

Go David, I love you! (Don't worry, Adam is aware.)

I also LOVE American Idol. And I am definitely a David A. fan! I used to use two phones to vote simultaneously (a couple seasons ago) but I have since stopped voting. Anyways, I totally LOVE it! You are not alone!

Hey there!! How are you guys doing?! I'm so surprised at how many people have these. It's awesome catching up with people. How are you all doing?!

Kathryn you crack me up. I too am an Idol junkie. I have followed Idol faithfully since the days of Kelly Clarkson. I even got suckered into going to the concert the very first year. Sad to say that I don't vote anymore, but I still watch it faithfully. However I am leaning more towards David Cook. I feel that David A. is still a little young and especially since I heard him say that being on American Idol is like serving his mission. Kind of funny since I have never even heard him mention that he is mormon. I guess I don't see him having the staying power like David C. Anyway no matter who you vote for the bottom line is that American Idol rocks!!

I am still your friend, but I have to admit that is a little much. 280 times!! Sheesh. The only time I have ever voted on American Idol was for Carrie Underwood and after like 5 times I was sick of calling. Anyway, I enjoy American Idol, but my fascination (or obsession) doesn't quite reach the length of yours.

I think that if you had said that you tried to call in and ask a question then I would've had to had a little talk with you.
This is the first season that I've watched and that's only because FOX is the only channel that we get. I think that David Cook needs to win! David A is nice and all but David Cook is just better!

i liked Idol at the beggining, but it gets repititous week after week. I found myself just watching the very end of wednesday nights show to find out who got kicked off.

Aaron and Jana said...

I am still waiting . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . maybe you should just tell me in person! :)

I love American Idol too! If I miss an episode I always watch their performances on youtube the next morning!

One of the salesmen for a supplier we use at work came in and we were talking and he said that he works for David A.'s grandfather. I guess he came and sang for them at work a while ago. I don't regularly watch Idol, but I did watch David A. try out at the beginning of the season at my sister in law's house. She's a devoted Idol fan too.

Kelsi said...

I am happy to admit that I share your addiction. We love Idol!! Go David A!!! As far as 280 votes.. way to go. Let's make our goal of 350 tonight!! Yay!

I have a similar American Idol experience...I thought anyone who watched it was wasting their time. But then I watched at my mom's house and I was hooked. My reason for loving the show is a little different though. I have a HUGE crush on Simon. This may sound funny but I actually stopped watching it this season because I can't stop dreaming of Simon at night. If I watch the show it is guaranteed that I will have some dream of me trying to meet Simon and kiss him. So, while I love the show and have kept up on the competition from my mom, I have stopped watching. I did almost start up again one night when I was flipping through the channels and I saw Simon. He is so cute.

This is the first season that I've actually followed American Idol. I haven't voted, but I guess you already voted for me, Kathryn, because I totally would have voted for David A. We'll see what tonight holds!
