Reality TV. It is truly a love/hate relationship. I love to watch it, but I hate to admit it. My newest reality TV obsession has been American Idol (I know, I'm roughly 9 seasons late to become obsessed with the show that has the rest of America on their couches 2-3 nights a week). I have dabbled in watching it in the past (mainly because my mom and brother have been addicted from the get-go), but only this season have I truly acquired an appreciation for the show! This is just a hunch, but it might have something to do with the fact that ELLEN is the newest judge...?? Seriously, she's hilarious. And you can totally tell that she loves what she is doing up there!

Last night was the guys' turn to show America what they've got, and to be honest, I was NOT impressed. The girls really rocked it the night before, but I expected more from the male contestants! I did, however, change my mind when the last two contestants took the stage. Casey James, contestant 11, really exceeded expectations (and may or may not have given Kara the big O on stage...AWKward!).

But by far, my absolute FAVORITE contestant of the show, is Andrew Garcia! From his initial audition, where he sang "Sunday Morning" by Maroon 5, up to his rendition of Paula Abdul's "Straight Up," he has had me hooked. And last night he rocked the stage with Fall Out Boy's "Sugar We're Going Down." When the episode ended, my roomies and I weren't satisfied enough, and spent the next 45 minutes watching videos of him and a variety of his (almost as) talented friends having jam sessions to a variety of songs (and medleys!)!

My favorite? The Michael Jackson Medley with Andrew and his friend (?) Cathy Nguyen! The best part (aside from his beautiful voice) is the little kid jumping around in the background!

Oh, and FYI: I may like AI, but I do not, by ANY means, like Ryan Seacrest. Total D-bag.
