Welcome to My American Idol World!
My name is Tamara and I have a problem. I’m ADDICTED to American Idol. This is an even bigger problem because it was cancelled, but we’ll get to that later. I grew up as a little girl in Oklahoma and always had dreams of being a star. In 2002 American Idol began, and I was there from the very beginning. My whole family and I would sit together and watch every episode, even 14 years later at the conclusion of the show. I was lucky enough to audition in 2012 for a spot in season 12, but unfortunately didn’t pass through. It was great meeting the judges though, especially Mariah Carey.
My Short Idol Story
There’s something special about being a star and American Idol gave everyday people across the country one common thing: hope. Even if you were a farm girl from Oklahoma, you could dream big that you would one day sing in front of thousands of people. While I didn’t realize that dream, many others did. To me American Idol was more than just a singing show; it was a way for millions of people to share a dream and exist in a community of shared dreams. When it ended last year I cried like I had lost a friend. Now I’m feeling a little better and hoping that this site can generate enough people to bring it back! I love the voice, but it’s nothing compared to American Idol.
My Idol Trivia
Definitely Season 4. The battle between Bo and my hometown girl Carrie Underwood was still one of the most heart-wrenching things I’ve seen in my life. They both deserved it so much. I still think about this season all the time…
I know, I know. Being from Oklahoma I should say Carrie Underwood. She is who I want to be. But that being said, there’s something about Candice Glover that I just really connected with. Her performance of Lovesong was one of the most raw moments on television. If only I had her level of determination and heart…
Being a true fan from day one, how could it be anyone other then Simon Cowell? Is there even a television personality that comes close to him. He was biting, witty, and dare I say: one sexy man. I’ll follow him to whatever tv show he’s on, which right now is nothing. I guess Simon is doing a lot of executive producing these days.
