So, I watched the first night. I figured I would give it a shot, just to see what the new season was like. Last season I did not even have to watch to know it was truly awful. This year promises to be better. I don't know if I will watch it every week, but Steven Tyler may make me change my mind. I love a guy who drops f bombs every couple of seconds. In a good way though, not in a mean, patronizing Gordon Ramsay kind of way.
He is definitely not a Simon Cowell. He actually seems like he is having fun, while Simon always seemed like he was counting the minutes until he could have his next cigarette and take a look at his moobs in the mirror.
Jennifer Lopez? I did not hate her. Did not love her either. I think she is a maybe so far. She has good chemistry with Steven, but I get the feeling she is struggling to contain her diva-ness and the only thing holding her back is the thought that this show is her last chance to make any kind of career. Her movies and songs suck, and this is the final roll of the dice. I just don't want to have to watch the inevitable Marc & J-Lo duet that will surely happen at some point this season.
Can you imagine Simon singing along with contestants? Steven is happy to.
