Although I've given up on American Idol, I watched it last night. There's nothing else on TV on Tuesday, so what else am I supposed to do? Turn off the TV, you say? ARE YOU MAD??? If I turned off the TV, I wouldn't have witnessed the greatest thing to happen to American Idol ever. For some reason, there was a girl in the audience, whose age and mental state will be decided at a later time, who could not stop crying. If you missed it, here's a bit:
Now, you may watch this clip and say - "Hey Girl #1! You're a dick! That's just a cute little girl who is overcome with joy at seeing this soon-to-be really gay Indian boy trying to rock!". Perhaps it was the bottle of wine that I swiftly consumed before I subjected myself to the gut-wrenching pain that is American Idol, but I found this to be incredibly hilarious. The show should be renamed "The Crying Girl Happy Funtime Hour" and have the singing just be secondary. Around 2:08 in the video, you see the first of MANY instances in which this girl squeezes out some tears for the camera. Fake crying is fine by me, don't get me wrong. I will fake cry to get out of any situation I don't want to be in. Parking tickets, work, giving a blow job, walking down the street...ANYTHING. But something was just hilariously wrong with this girl. And where the hell is her family? Did they just let this crying girl wander in and have a seat right next to the judges? I call shenanigans on American Idol! But a good shenanigans, nonetheless. If anything, I respect American Idol more for exploiting a mildly retarded youngster's emotions while subjecting a 17-year-old kid to the ridicule of the entire country. Way to bring the children down, American Idol. If you keep the crazy crying girl, you just may win me back.
