Does anyone else watch American idol?

I do - that's how exciting my Friday nights are.

But that's not my point. My point is this: is Cat Deely the world's most irritating TV presenter?? Or it is just me? Why does she never look at the camera? Why does she constantly look at the sky and the floor as though she's desperately looking for a teleprompter?

Sure she looks great but that's it.

yes, am annoyed by her 'twenny' instead of twenty

it's addictive

so much better than the x factor

Oh we love this too. Just watched it actually. Lol at 'Simon shoould go back to british'

Agree, Cat wonky face Deely is awful. Don't like her at all now.

When the first American idol series was on, I was living in the US and got hooked there. Kelly Clarkson won and I even called in and voted for her. And now in some really sad little way, when I hear her songs on the radio, i feel I played a small part in getting her there. I desperately need to get a life.

I am sky+ing this series and usually watch it over the weekend. You can watch it in half the time (or less) if you fastforward over the all the pointless (Cat, adverts etc) and repetitive bits!

Am looking forward to Hollywood and live shows really!

Oh - and I lurve Randy. He makes me giggle

northerner Fri 09-Feb-07 21:46:09

I wonder how some of the previous winners are getting on? Ovb Kelly Clarkson is doing great, but what about Fantasia Burrino, Rueben and that blonde country girl who beat Bo Bice (can't remember her name)

Simon "When you sing in public what reaction do you get?"

Audionee "People have cried."

Simon "Yes, I can see that."

Ryan Seacrest drives me nuts, but I still watch. I like the Hollywood bit best too. They never show enough of that, and yet waste weeks on all these crappy early auditions.

BandofMothers Fri 09-Feb-07 21:47:53

I like the first bits. So VERY funny to see people make idiots of themselves.
Do you think they have the left door locked on purpose??
Also did any one see the really goodlooking blonde, english bloke who got through to Hollywood.
DH thinks Cat Deeley is gorg. GAG

northerner - blonde girl who beat Bo Bice has a huge career in country music. Nominated and winning awards. Her name is Carrie Underwood.

Not sure what's become of the others.

JoshandJamie Fri 09-Feb-07 21:50:16

It truly is one of the few programmes that makes me laugh out loud. And yes, I did see that blonde english guy - hubbada hubbadah.

BandofMothers Fri 09-Feb-07 21:52:29

Worth watching just to see if he's got a nice bum too!!
Simon makes me lol.

NadineBaggott Fri 09-Feb-07 21:54:05

some great voices this year

BandofMothers Fri 09-Feb-07 21:57:04

NB. Have seen your name on here a few times, and then saw the advert with Nadine Baggott in. Is that you, and if not why did you choose that for a tag name??
Sorry, am just naturally curious about things that are none of my business.

northerner Fri 09-Feb-07 21:58:42

Carrie Underwood - that's her!! Thanks.

She's good.

StinkyPete Fri 09-Feb-07 22:45:42

another AI addict here - and completely peed off with deeley. what is the point??? do her bits get played in america too? - or are they some kind of attempt at translating it into british. if so we've managed without her for 5 series'.

ecantona Fri 09-Feb-07 22:51:53

suspect paula abdul is drunk quite a lot of the time...she slurs quite badly (not that i'm one to judge!)

glad some other people agree with me about cat deeley, she is driving me insane!! the advert break every 10 mins is quite enough to handle without her giving her 'british view point'. we're british not idiots! it's only american idol and we really don't need a translation or explanation cat - thanks all the same.
oooh er, nuff ranting!!!

I watch American Idol, but on Sky+ so probably not in the same order as it is broadcast. Cat is rubbish, can't understand why she is on it. Americans are more outgoing than us brits so it is much more entertaining than X-Factor.

incidentally, i am really enjoying the rest of the prog!
