    No, I've never seen more than a minute or two long snippet of the show. I dislike TV in general, and especially "reality" shows. American Idol is one of the least offensive reality shows, but I still don't like it.

    I've had a few beers and read this title really fast... I thought this was a story about the guy hanging himself.



    Now I'm all disappointed.

    I've never seen the show either, but every time I saw this guy on the commercials I definitely giggled.

    I watched on Tuesday. Phew! What a stinker. Some of the performers just sounded awful, such as those two brothers. Some chose songs that just don't match their persona, like the one with suspenders. It was painful to listen too, even more painful to listen to than Ryan Seacrest.



    I really expected Lisa to make it through. She had the best voice, but I think she had two things going against her. First, I can't help but think of 'Lisa Leubner' from SNL when I hear her name. Second, her dancing made me nauteous.



    It would be hard for next week to be worse.

    He was great . . . I mean his person



    He had a heart of gold and was positive to the core . .

    a living proof that a good outlook will move mountains



    Look: he is completely without talent . . . laughably so, and yet he has, in a way, attained his goal of celebrity and musicianship.



    . . . he better not drop out of school though

    There are thousands of people that make big differences in this world every day, and this shmoe gets a $25,000 contract for being an awful singer.

    I thought it was really cruel how the guys in the jury laughed the way they did. Sure it was hilarious, but they could have had more compassion when telling him that he didn't have what it takes. The girl atleast tried to be nice to him. She earned my respect for that.

    i saw him on tv the other day, so i stopped surfing to watch (unfortunatley it was on Ellen, but oh well). the point is that they gave him an iPod on the show ( not a mini), but it was cool exposure.

    Ganondorf, you insensitive brute, take some get-in-touch-with-yourself classes, why don't you? There is no need to be mean when criticizing someone. That australian jerk sure was mean to good ol' William Hung.

    Simon is no more of a jerk than he needs to be. He's a realist. If you go on that show and you suck, you will be told the truth. Now what are you saying, that you condone lying?

    I'm not sure if any of this counts as a triumph of heart over talent.



    I mean, at the end of the day the guy is the geek du jour, along the lines of the kid who had his star wars home video posted to the web.



    Do you really think that the people that are driving his "popularity" are warmed by his "heart of gold"? I think they just think it's great that a guy who appears to be completely oblivious to his own ridiculousness is willing to make a fool of himself over and over.



    Question is, is Mr. Hung in on the joke?

    Well I am glad someone took the bait. No Luca, I don't condone lying, but you see there is a good way and a bad way of letting people know that they do not have what it takes.
