I've been out of commission for a while. The holidays working in retail will do that to you. I spent a little over a month sick. I count only two other times in my life that I have been that sick before. Even now, I am not 100%, won't be for a while I don't think. Last time I wrote, The Voice was done to the final five. Only one out of the three finalists really deserved to be there, and luckily, she won The Voice. It should have been Tessanne Chin, Cole Vosbury, and James Wolpert. I found the finale entertaining overall, but those three stood out throughout the finale despite the fact that two of them weren't even finalists.
I'm super excited to say that American Idol starts up again this Wednesday with Jennifer Lopez back on the judging panel after a season away, Keith Urban returning from last season, and Harry Connick Jr., who was a guest mentor on the show joining the judges panel. Season 13 should be without question, one of the best season's Idol has seen in a few years.
The Bachelor is back. Juan Pablo is kinda superficial and dumb which should make for an entertaining season.
The Winter Olympics start on February 6th in Sochi, Russia. I am going to be so busy writing, I won't know what to do with myself.
Tonight, the Golden Globes, yes, award season is back!
