The American Idol Season 15 finale and supposed last-ever episode aired last week so I thought I’d talk about it for this month’s Timeless Thoughts. It made me quite emotional because I’ve been watching this show since I was in elementary school. It will feel strange not looking forward to a new season next January.
Though I wasn’t a completely loyal fan having missed a few seasons, I still got to experience the show in its peak. I was a constant visitor at VoteForTheWorst.com during its strongest years, was familiar with some fan terms and the whole WGWG thing when it started, and even managed to put up a fansite to support my favorite contestant: David Archuleta.
The show used to be such a staple in my household. We would gather as a family to watch. Yes, it would get suuuupper cheesy at times but that’s part of the fun of it!
I still remember being in elementary school and freaking out when I saw Jasmine Trias in a mall show. Though, not in person as my mom and I had to leave before her show started! That was the first of many memories to come from this show.
