American Idol. I really enjoyed last night's show, the one where the kids had to write their own songs and then forgot the words. Why stop and agonize about forgetting? No one else knows the right words, so just sing any words! An early favorite at my house is Jennifer Hudson.
UPDATE: Professor Yin, who liked last night's episode too, notes that it's hard to keep names straight at this stage. It's not a mental feat on my part, it's my beloved Tivo. Anyway, Hudson was on the extra Monday night show. She sang an Aretha Franklin song and talked about working on a cruise ship--and, as longtime AI viewers know, "cruise ship" is frequently used on the show as code for energetic but not really that good. But she was good.
