No. I enjoy the show very much. I sing in my Church choir and also as part of a Concert Chorale with the Symphony Orchestra. I am a baritone. I like watching the kids go for the Gold. I wouldn't presume to be competitive. I thought Taylor Hicks, a local man from my town, was too old for the competition...little did I know? LOL I was a little surprised about the men last night, too. I thought they were all better in the prelims. They will get better with time. The ladies are up tonight. Should be a good group.
