I have been watching American Idol less and less. Somehow, it has lost a lot of the appeal that it once held. I have watched enough to learn that Northwest Ohio native, Crystal Bowersox, is one of the early favorites. Good for her!

She definitely has taken over the void as supreme cheerleader vacated by Paula Abdul… maybe a bit too much. Enough about that because I really can’t say too much with the amount I have seen.
I will comment on the act that was part of the results show tonight. A “Breakout” artist of the new year, Ke$hia (that’s how it is spelled) performed something.

Or maybe I could not hear the lyrics because I was too busy laughing at the audacity of the spectacle. It really made me wonder where she broke out from! I think I’d rather hear “Pants on the Ground” but I think that has had its 5 minutes of fame. The video on youtube just did not do the hilarious performance tonight justice.
