I'm conflicted about whether to watch this year. I don't like Christina on the show (does anyone?). The people I root for never seem to make it far and definitely don't win. I am much more interested in the rock musicians than the country or R&B artists, but they never seem to do as well. For example, my favorites in the past have been Terry McDermott and Juliet Simms. I didn't HATE last year's winner, it was just rather boring and predictable. As soon as the live shows started you could tell she would be the winner.
Basically, it seems like this show is catering to all of the demographics that don't include me.
