American Idol Not Idyllic

American Idol Not Idyllic (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

I watched Idol last night — wasn’t dandy.
They gave compliments out just like candy.
And something is wrong
When with song after song
The toughest of judges is Randy.

    Do people still watch that show???

  3. American idol, that’s my ticket to fame
    But I miss sharp tongued what’s his name
    The guy in the t-shirts
    Quick witted, with all the quirks
    To me, the show’s just not the same.

  5. LOL. I haven’t watched in many seasons, but there is definitely something wrong if Randy is the meanest judge! :)

    Thanks everyone! American Idol is an extremely popular TV show that centers around a singing competition. Over the years it’s lead to a decent number of recording contracts and singing careers. Huge numbers of people who imagine themselves future pop music stars audition, hoping to make it into the on air competition, win, get famous, land tours and contracts, hit the top of the music charts, etc.
