Were not sure which part of American Idol is worse: the washed-up celebrity judges or the slew of ignorant pop tarts who couldnt name one album released prior to the 1990s, but are expected to bring a fresh perspective to a classic Top 40 hit. (Seriously, if we hear one more Beatles track butchered by a teen bimbo, were going to snap.)
That kind of music murder makes us long for a sad country tune performed by a hot lesbian cowgirl . . . a longing satisfied only at the Phoenix Country Idol competition. This weeks preliminary round will choose two finalists to compete against others at the Country Idol finals next month.
