Seriously, tho …how come every vision of the future features flying cars and yet, there’s not even plans for flying cars by any of the big auto companies. It’s never going to happen.
Anyway, so here we are 11 years into this American Idol experiment and we’re down to three, and last night they headed home. The hometown visits were pretty tricky. Fox and Idol were very clever in tying into some existing concerts and festivals to make it look like 10,000 or 20,000 people turned out to see Jessica and Phillip …but, ahem. I know better. This isn’t 2002 and 10,000 people aren’t going anywhere anymore to see a real live American Idol finalist. I’m sure a few years ago local TV stations really did show up at the airport. Now, it’s probably the junior anchor (or intern) at that city’s Fox affiliate.
