its very strange, i haven't seen it in at least 10 seasons.
i've worked in the music industry for some major labels in various capacities, I gigged, I produced, some of my work had national distribution, and i worked on some major acts behind the scenes.
now im not saying im some hit maker but I know music, and what is strange is they are passing gold tickets to minorities who do not sing as well as the whites they pass up. I never noticed this before, but im sure it was there, and they also are doing back stories which are brainwashing.
they had this guy who said his dad was evil... and violent and his whole joy in life was to do good on idol to help his mom who was great.
(she picked the guy and stayed with him for years while he beat his kids in front of her and never did anything to stop it, what a woman.)
they had a single mother of 11 kids, some white some half black, some half hispanic.... her son wasn't that good at all, got a ticket.
(insert strong woman narrative, 11 fucking kids with different dads, non of them in the picture)
white guy sings something, kills it... and they are like its a no for me, insert random reason that makes no sense. if they do give him a ticket the praise is always much lesser than the POC they gave a ticket to who was 1/3 as good...
can i be put back in the matrix?
highlight of the night, some 16 year old jew girl sang so well that katty perry was visibly mad and jealous because we all know she cant really sing... and is just a soft core porn star.
