American Idol Season 11

I have to admit, I am pretty excited for the new season of American Idol.

For the past five years, I have blogged about the show and gave commentary and rankings for every competition performance and offered predictions.

I want to do the same this year, but I just may not be able to the way I have before. Basically, I am just a lot busier than I was at this time last year, and that is a good thing, because I am employed and also quite engaged in watching the political scene unfold. For example, tonight was a great night for me as a Mitt Romney supporter as I watched him take both Arizona and Michigan (more about that on Saturday), but it's kinda late now and I have to get up early for work, so there really is no time for me to watch two hours of Idol, let alone blog about it.

There will be more politics stuff that I will have to make a priority as well as a lot of sports stuff I will want to see this coming Spring, so I just have to sort of take a step back from being totally Idol-obsessive, and will just have to see how it goes on a week by week basis.

Sometime, this weekend I will have to find a time to watch all the hours of Idol this week and then on Sunday, I will probably write one blog entry for the week in which I will give at least some brief thoughts and grades for each performance and will recap the results. Assuming I do not come across any spoilers before I write it (which is doubtful), I suppose I can say who I thought would advance, etc, but that will be a bit outdated by then. Oh well.

It is what it is, but I will look forward to doing my best to keep up with this season of American Idol, amidst everything else going on out there.
