Wasn't gonna post

geez....I know MANY of you out in blogland are not watchers of American Idol...

BUT I am a watcher....WAIT!!!! don't tune out yet, this blog is not about American Idol, but a man that was on the show about 5 minutes ago. He touched my heart.

This gentleman was in his mid 50's. The age limit for the show is 28.

His story was that his life long love of twenty years wanted him to be able to go on the show, they were collecting signatures to petition so he could be on the show, and during this time she was found to have cancer.

One of the things that uplifted her daily while she was sick, was when he came in with more signatures.

Two days before the audition she passed away, he went to the A.I. audition as a way to do something she would have wanted him to do. He did it for her and he then sang a song for her...

Of course Paula cried (that is a given)

That part that touched me was after he walked out...he stated - he was a winner!

I loved the attitude! To me he was the best one of the entire show.

Am I corny? YES and I love corny, mushy stuff like that.

Awww... how sad but sweet.

What a guy! I love mushy stuff like that too.

AI is on the media center, we probably won't get to it until the weekend, but I'll be sure to look for him.

I've never watched that show but that is a very touching story.

Jay said...

He was actually one of the better singers.

I'm trying not to be all cynical about the dude and what was really up though. LOL

RockDog said...

I didn't see this one, but read it on CNN.

I'm also amazed that Jay held back on this...amazing! LOL!

Kati said...

Wasn't that SOOO sad?!?!?! I didn't get to see his entire thing because DH was switching back & forth between AI & Deal or No Deal, but I saw enough to have me crying. DH didn't even make fun of me for crying this time (though DD did). Soooo sweet, and that all the judges gave him hugs or shook his hand. Sometimes they DO show their hearts. Though they (Simon & Randy) pissed me off on Tuesday over their lack of care in their response to the girl with the really long hair. It was like they only reason they listened to her at all was to gawk at her hair. They didn't even have the heart to tell her that her voice would be great in church, but not quite the thing for AI. Nope, just straight out told her that she's got a voice only her mama would love. That was just rude.

But, I did like how they handled the older gentleman last night.

Ah you are not corny or mushy - you have a good heart is all - so much to admire about you!

That is so sweet.

Echo said...

I watched this with you. It was so sad and sweet. I think he was 64??? but really, he had a great voice.

Meander said...

i did see him! oh my god i was sobbing!

Em said...

I don't watch IDOL so I can't really add to that part of your post. But I can say that it is nice to 'know' someone (even via the blogs) who is touched by someone like this man. Thanks for sharing your reactions.

Dorky Dad said...

What did Simon say?

I don't think they should have an age ceiling, but that's just 'cuz I'm old.

DMM said...

I cried when he sang...it was touching...great post.

Chalice said...

I admit! I am a fan of American Idol and I saw that episode. It was entirely too sweet and I almost cried. There is nothing in the world like true love :)

Making my penis bigger has actually taught me several things, different from the fact that it happens to be ultimately possibly and permanent, he said. The first is that penis sizegenetics surgery is not totally necessary. Surgery is costly, as well as it also very risky, even in cases that procedure goes smoothly without any complications. Besides that, surveys have shown that a majority of men may very well gone under the knife arenrrrt pleased in the results.I also learned that pumps don't work. At the time i decided I wanted to start making my penis bigger, I bought a pump, so it wasn't a cheap one either.
