They are two words that are music to everyone's ears: Hollywood Week! Yes, friends, the American Idol auditions are finally over, and that means the majority of the people we hear this week will actually have talent (When I say "most," I'm looking at you Zoanette Johnson). The stale bread phase of our meal has ended, and now it's time for the appetizers. By the end of next week's shows, we'll be down to our top 20 boys and top 20 girls.
In order to move on, the contestants will have to survive the most intense week of their lives. That is, of course, until the next phase, which will also be the most intense week of their lives. Followed by the next two months, which will be the most intense two months of their lives. It's like every reality show says every year, get ready for the most dramatic, intense season you've ever seen. This ... is American Idol!
