I'm totally biased. I'm not watching Idol this season because, like a lot of people, I watch as much for the judges as I do the singers. Tonight, I boldly decided to tune in if only for the reason that I'm sort of a Katy Perry fan boy and she was guest judging tonight along with Avril Lavigne.
I've been complaining right up to the start of American Idol Season 9 that this whole guest judge thing seems so totally random, as does the curious hiring of Ellen Degeneres to replace Paula Abdul. Boy, did tonight prove me totally right. Case in point: Avril Lavigne. This girl is plain mean. Besides being generally condescending and a total bore, she didn't even seem to get the spirit of the show. For instance, Pastor Jim Ranger not only had the cahones to audition with an original song - and it was better than Kara's pop-tripe - but he totally nailed it. Lavigne gives him a no because he has a family, and she doesn't think he's ready for the commitment. Luckily, it appears her vote doesn't matter because Jim is going to Hollywood.
