Oh boy! 'American Idol' Returns Tonight!
The first round of televised auditions are from Phoenix (home of season six winner Jordin Sparks; check out a totally awesome article I wrote about that here), which is sort of weird for me. Not only is that where I'm from, this is also the first year in a while that AI has started and I'm not doing TV coverage of any sort as part of my job. I can only imagine the great night that I would have in front of me sitting at home and watching all this on TV! And writing about it! Sigh. Instead I'll just go out and see music instead. But if I'm lucky, maybe someone from around here will end up as one of the finalists! And I can write about that! Oh, that'd be great. Almost as cool as that interview I did with the kid that won the "Grease" reality show two years ago.
