As you already heard, American Idol is returning to television. It won’t be the same without Simon Cowoll ( pardon my spelling of his last name).
Simon made the show the original American Idol. Even though he was tough and considered darn right mean to those trying out for the show, he was truthful. The contestants needed it.
If he wasn’t truthful, how would they handle what life threw at them after the show.
Blake Shelton from the other competition show, “The Voice” made a statement, not understanding why the contestants on the voice can’t go as far as say Carrie Underwood and Kelly Clarkson.
I got news for you Mr. Blake Shelton. Even though you are a good singer and I was disappointed when you and Miranda got a divorce. I thought you two had something there, like Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash, and even George Jones and Tammy Whynette .
The reason why the contestants on the voice doesn’t goes as far as they American Idol’s contestants is because you judges are way too nice. You can’t sugarcoat the truth like you do. They need to hear the truth. If they are bad they need to know it.
Simon had taken a lot of crap because people thought that he was way too mean, downright rude.
Sounds familiar, so does our President, Donald Trump also takes a lot of heat because people say he is too mean. He attacks everybody.
I have to admit I didn’t really trust Trump at first because he scared me. He grows on me. I like it when he slam it to the Established Republicans, the fake news media, and even the Democrats. He tells it like it is. He holds no punches. Simon is the same way.
There are people who may like Simon but still can’t stand Trump. I don’t get it! You can’t have your cake and eat it too.
I’m sick and tired of all these politically correct people out there who says, “you got to me nice.” People like Bill Maher and others who say “that’s not nice,” needs to go away. If you can’t handle the truth, just go away. As Jack Nichaelson said in the movie, “A Few Good Men,” “You want the truth, you can’t handle the truth.”
There is a televangelist, Dwight Thompson that says, “Today’s preachers are sugarcoating the truth because they are afraid of offending someone.” We need to hear the truth. As one pastor would say, “I’m not afraid what others would say when I preached or speak the truth.”
Back to the American Idol, the new judges, I just don’t know about them. Luke Bryan is very nice guy. I met him when he performed at the Fargo Dome. When he got off the stage, as we were going up to tear down, he gave us a high five. Now that is very nice. I don’t think he has in him to be tough on the contestants that try out for American Idol.
No one likes hearing the truth. It hurts! That is why it is called tough love. Yet today’s generation, you have sugarcoat the truth or you may offend someone.
My step-dad always said, “If you are speaking the truth about someone or something and that others become defensive and upset; you are onto something.”
Sometimes, I can be a little tough or mean in my blogs, because I’m not afraid to tell it like it is. I had a comment from someone who wasn’t too happy with me. I was even wondering, because it seems that my softer blogs does better than my angrier blogs for viewers. I got to be me. You will see both side of me. Dr. Jeckell and Mr. Hyde.
I haven’t watched the Voice because when I did I saw the judges being way too nice. Pretty much after Simon left American Idol, I haven’t watch that show. He made that show. I will not watch the return of American Idol unless the judges learn to get tougher. They must not sugarcoat the truth.
I will continue standing by Pres. Trump because he doesn’t sugarcoat the truth. We needs to clean up the swamp in Washington. The news media needs to be put in their place. America needs people like Simon, Trump, and I to continue speaking the truth harshly. The American people needs to hear it if we are to be great again.
