The first two hours of American Idol on Tuesday did not inspire confidence that we'd be blown away this season.
Do you ever wonder if this show's fan base is made up mostly of shut-ins who just want to get outside, even though it makes them look foolish?
Our favorite? Rachel, the Army Reservist with a hubby in Iraq. She was sweet, cute, fun and had a decent voice, even if she has no chance to make the top 12.
The best singer, however, was Sarah Krueger, who sang "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" even better than 2006 runner-up Kat McPhee.
We missed the first few minutes tonight, but apparently that's a good thing because all that rain in Seattle makes the citizens angry, unattractive and tone deaf.
