I don’t know if you ever watch the Grammy’s which were on this past Sunday night, but I did this year. I didn’t just sit there and watch every bit of it but caught bits and pieces of the whole thing. I enjoyed some of it but lots of the performances were kind of over [...]

I was happy to see American Idol’s new season which started a couple of weeks ago. I had actually forgotten that it was time for the new season to start until it was the night it started -  but that was a happy surprise. I have watched The Voice but I still like American Idol [...]
