I have to admit, I broke down and spent some time watching American Idol last night.  The show that is now in it's 13th season started off with auditions in Boston and Austin, so I had to see what the scoop was.  The show now has Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick Jr. as the judges and I have to say they work pretty well together.  They all seem pretty down to earth and are truthful with the contestants.  One contestant I did recognize was Jillian Jensen, with ties to Rochester, Jillian made it through to Hollywood and is once again a step closer to realizing her dream.  Jillian you may remember made it on to the X Factor show last year and Demi Lovato took a liking to her music but in the end was cut in the early rounds. Once she received her golden ticket to Hollywood she hugged Harry Connick Jr and told him she loved him in the show Will & Grace.

I am not a fan of American Idol like I used to be but the judges are very good this year and I think that they may have a successful season.  I do have to say that when they start putting the contestants up who make a mockery of the show and act silly that is when I find myself turning the channel.  Again congratulations to Jillian Jensen and I hope she makes it big on the show.
