I used to love watching all kinds of award shows, but now I only like watching for the fashion, the opening monologs and the last hour for the awards that I’m interested in. The Golden Globe awards never proves to be too boring because there are always surprises in the winners, the hosts are usually generally entertaining and the fashions are pretty fabulous.
Once upon a time I watched American Idol, pretty much like everyone else in America was doing at that time – the early seasons. It was Season Two, better known as Clay vs Ruben. Ruben Studdard (the velvet teddy bear as he was nicknamed) went on to win that season. I can say he’s a very nice guy, having met him on more than one occasion. Actually I only watched American Idol that season because there was a contestant on the show that was from my hometown of Memphis, Tennessee, Lashundra Trenyce Cobbins, better known “Trenyce”. She had a pretty dynamic voice and made it all the way to being a top five finalist.
