American Idol is back!

Tonight at 8pm EST, American Idol will be back. They are saying there will be a lot of changes this year with of course the most obvious being the new judges. Simon Cowell, Kara DioGuardi and Ellen DeGeneres are out. Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez are in and Randy Jackson returns for the 10th season.

The judges have been bragging that it is the most talented group ever – but I don’t believe them. I think they said something like that last year and while I watched every episode, it was a bit of a snoozefest (and the tour sold very poorly as well with many dates being canceled and rescheduled) I think they just have to say things like that to get people pumped to watch.

Most likely I will be watching the entire season, since Idol is a bit of a guilty pleasure or obsession of mine… Last year I had considered blogging about the show but then couldn’t stay committed to it. I don’t want to commit to anything this year either – but I will at the very least try to post something with my thoughts about all the changes after I watch a few episodes. (The first 9 minutes tonight are supposed to explain everything that will be changing) Perhaps I will put my guesses for the bottom 3 once we get to that point in the competition as well. It will all depend on if I am inspired enough.

I am kind of excited about everything starting up tonight but at the same time trying not to get my hopes up. Steven Tyler and JLo are both great performers and they obviously know a lot about the industry – but how well will they do at judging the contestants? Who will ‘tell it like it is’ like Simon used to do? And just how many times will Randy say ‘dawg’?

What is the most important thing you’re putting off? And why haven’t you done it yet? What do you need to make it happen?

I think it would have to be re-doing my room.  I have wanted to do this for years, but it keeps getting pushed to the bottom of my priority list.  Probably because in order to rearrange and hang things I have to first somewhat clean my room and then take down all the Mets posters that have been hanging since around 2006. Some of which I don’t even know how I reached that high to hang them in the first place!  And I’d much rather read books, write blogs or mess around on the internet than actually clean my room…

I have a lot of concert posters and stuff I want to hang and I want to basically flip the furniture in my room, but I am not sure if it will all fit on the other side of the room and then I think about it and become incredibly overwhelmed and give up! It is just a HUGE project. I’m not really sure how important it is but it is definitely a BIG thing.
