American Idol, Avril, Really?

I needed more than the 140 characters twitter gives me to talk about Idol this morning.  I am wondering what irritated Avril Lavigne the most about Idol contestant Jim Ranger?  Was it the fact that he is a worship pastor or that he has a lovely family that made her think he couldn't handle life as a recording artist? To give her a little bit of credit, hopefully she thought that he already had a lot going on and didn't need to add anything.  I loved his voice and while he isn't young and hot, this is the show that brought us Elliot Yamin and Chris Sligh, and let us not forget Clay Aiken.  Avril was just a disappointment as a judge.  I thought she might be feisty and was bummed that she acted like a bored child in the footage they showed us.  Thank goodness Katy Perry was there for the second day because she brought some life to the judges' table. 
My patience is wearing thin with the audition rounds.  Yet again they treat us to trainwreck after trainwreck.  It gets to the point that yes, I can look away.  I'll just dvr it and fast forward through most of the show.  Hopefully Hollywood week is coming soon, I can't wait to see what happens when Ellen joins the party!

You hit the nail on the head about Avril. She was a pouty little brat and that hoodie was annoyingly teenager-ish, along with her attitude. What the hell does she know about balancing life/work/family anyway? That's his problem to work out and he was a good singer.

I didn't care for Katy Perry either though she was more interesting than Avril.

I hate these audition shows too, I can't wait to get to the good stuff.
