I haven't watched American Idol since the season with Ruben and Clay. And yet for some mysterious reason I'm completely hooked this season. This concept of performing with instruments? Yeah, that totally didn't exist last time I watched. These were my two favorite performances from last night's episode. I'd buy both of their albums tomorrow if I could.
Also, we (we including the mom and the Jon) decided last night that Ellen is an awesome judge. I'm not anti-Paula or anything, but Ellen's addition definitely sparked my interest in this season.
