Mental illness

I've become convinced there is a particular form of mental illness in which its victim suffers from the delusion that he/she is a competent singer. Yes, I'm catching bits of Idol auditions tonight.

I can proudly say I've never watched a second of Idol. I've had many co-workers who did and what I heard from them was the best "singer" almost never wins. So it's just a popularity contest and I've never understood what the judges have to do with it once they decide who gets to LA or Hollywood or whatever.

As for this portion of the show, it's the whole 15 minutes of fame thing. I truly don't think they believe they are good - they just want on tv or on Idol.
