is one of those shows that I watch every week. For some reason, this season I have been really drawn to it. We usually watch the first bit when they are travelling and see all the goofy stuff, then stop watching it. This year, however, I have been so drawn to it. And I think I know why.
It is an amazing group of performers who are not afraid to be themselves. From the types of songs they sing, to their style of performing, this group really is different. To be honest, David Cook is my favorite. I love his rocker take-no-prisoners way of singing, breaking out and breaking the rules. One of my favorite moments, however, was last week on Idol Gives Back. As a Christian, I was moved to tears when they ended the show with Shout to the Lord. It was not just a great song, but a powerful and passionate performance. What a statement that on a show that reaches millions of people, God was praised so openly and honestly if just for 3 and a half minutes.
