Filled With Consternation

I'm currently watching Singapore Idol now and I am APPALLED. Appalled means "be filled with consternation or dismay"; consternation meaning "A state of paralyzing dismay" and dismay meaning, "To destroy the courage or resolution of by exciting dread or apprehension". So in other words watching Singapore Idol has left me paralyzed with dread.

Why am I so appalled?

Because of the last 2 performances. Of course one of them was Jerry Ong, who's still in the competition thanks to his bunch of tone-deaf, stupid but RICH supporters. I'm thinking of how to describe his performance, but his performance was so so bad, that I can't find the words to describe it. Okay, well maybe there is a word to describe it.


The 2nd person that has touched me tonight is Christopher Lee. Man, I don't know what the heck he was singing. At one point those falsettos were really starting to piss me off. I think Dick Lee said it best.

"Don't pick songs that you cannot handle. You should just stick to Ba Ba Black Sheep."

Well said, Mr Dick Lee. Finally you've said something wise.

At least the show didn't totally disappoint me as the final performance by Taufik was something that I enjoyed. But the fact that the show, week after week, is filled with mediocre performances (and the fact the Jerry Ong is still in) brings me to the conclusion that the whole show is a total waste of time.

Then why am I watching it? Well.. That's because watching Singapore Idol, or doing anything else in that matter, is better than studying. =) I hate studying.

PS: I feel it's harsh calling people gay when we don't know for sure that they are, so I changed the title of the previous entry.
