Who's gonna be our next Idol?

I have to confess... I love “American Idol.” I love singing and I love singers, and this show is a global acknowledgment of the power of music to lift the spirits and engage the senses. It’s the Star Search of the 21st century, and I love the fact that this is one of very few reality TV shows that seeks to show the best side of its participants, as opposed to the worst. And I love that the contestants become famous for something tangible- a talent that is meaningful and marketable.

I guess it also speaks to my heart because I dream of being able to make my living as a singer and actor. I close my eyes and am transported to a place when I can positively impact as many people as these singers do. I get to imagine myself doing all of the things that they get to do, and it inspires me to keep working. To keep getting out there, because if it is possible for them then it is possible for me too.

The final show is halfway done and I am still split over who I want to win. Taylor and Katharine are both so wonderful and I would easily buy either of their albums. My mom is probably going to give herself carpel tunnel from voting so much for Katharine (last week, she got through more than 90 times). My boyfriend is a huge Taylor fan. Who are all of Elliott’s votes going to this week? I can’t wait to find out tomorrow!

PS If you want to see my heart and soul, I invite you to listen to/watch some of my demos.
