How American Idol Brings My Family Together

Guest written by our friend Solomon Thompson

With there being seven people in my family all being of different ages and genders, there are not many shows we enjoy watching together. There is one show though, that everyone in my family from the youngest to the oldest enjoys watching together, and that is American Idol.

Once Ryan Seacrest says those famous words "This is American Idol" everyone immediately quiets down and we all sit down to watch. There are few family friendly shows left out there that most family members enjoy together and luckily American Idol is still one of them. We usually start watching the show at the beginning of the season where we all laugh together at some of the auditions of the poor contestants who try to make it to Hollywood. Generally, once all of the contestants have been chosen for Hollywood everyone in our family has picked their own favorite.

Even as the season progresses on, I am still amazed at how quiet and still my family is as we watch American Idol on Direct TV en espanol programming. Everyone has their own opinion of the different singers and I laugh at how serious my children get when they are judging their favorite and how they want to vote for their favorite contestants. While voting for all our favorites can take a while I do not mind since it just means next week, at the same time we will all be together again watching our favorite show.

Nakakaaliw naman talaga ang American Idol lalo pa nuong nadun pa si Simon Cowell. Kinagigiliwan ito sa buong US at sa lahat nang parte nang mundo. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
