American Idol season seven hype begins
Last year, as you may recall, season six was often slammed by fans and critics as the WORST SEASON EVER. Who could forget Sanjaya? Oh wait, we did. His 15 minutes of fame only lasted 12.5 minutes. But for all of our Sanjaya-bashing, at least he kept things interesting in an otherwise bland and uninspiring year. Seriously, does anyone even care that Jordin Sparks just released her debut album?
FOX, of course, is determined not to repeat last year's mistakes. It probably didn't help things when Simon and Paula slammed Seattle as the worst audition city ever before season six even began. So it makes sense that this year the judges are helping to hype season seven in a more positive and glowing light.
Randy Jackson declared this year's top twelve -- "the best we've ever had." According to Simon, it's "potentially" the best season. He also called it "fresher" and called the contestants "better." Paula is also excited about the upcoming season. There's so many good contestants that Paula claims, "Simon Cowell cannot predict the winner this season."
Randy went out on a limb to offer this prediction: "Somebody with hair will win Idol season seven."
