Today I was downstairs when my grandparents started watching American Idol. Now, I understand why people watch that show. It does give some people a lot of wonderful opportunities. However, some country singer did "If I Can Dream," which is one of my very favorite songs ever. She butchered it. There was no emotion, no passion, no feeling at all. Here is Elvis' classic performance from his '68 comeback special. You be the judge. But to me, sucking all the soul from a song is offensive to the very heart of the music spirit.
That got dramatic.
