American Idol Eye Candy

This year I’ve been kind of ambivalent toward American Idol — in it’s seventh season, I figured same ol’, same ol’. But at the urging of the Hench Aussie, who went to high school with one of this year’s contestants, I tuned in tonight to see the top 10 guys sing. It seems that this year, unlike previous years, the American Idol producers have finally started catering to their main demographic: screaming, love-sick teenage girls. In past seasons, good looks among the guys has been an anomaly. Remember Elliot, the hobbit? Bucky from the trailer park? Chicken Little? But this year the remaining 10 guys trend slightly above average to pretty damn hot.

Another difference? Singers can now play guitar while they perform, which I think bodes well for some of the guys. I’ll be interested to see if any of the girls take advantage of this rule change. All-in-all, there’s just enough here to hook me for another season. Damn you, Fox! Damn you.
