American Idol 9

Okay, tonight was a better night for some of these contestants. Michael  connected with the audience, Crystal sang well in her stiletto heels, Andrew made a bit of a comeback, and Lee came out of his shell to show off his fine chops.

But oh, the rest of the crew was insanely boring, pitchy, bland and robotic.

There will never be another Season 7 for us – we know that. But at least we should be able to get a little bit excited about someone on this show. There isn’t even any real controversy to mask the lack of talent and personality on the show this year.

Is it me, or is this the worst AI ever?  Am I being harsh, or are my expectations too high after Season 7?
