We finally got around to watching Miss America last Friday night. It was getting close to bedtime and fast-forwarded through the boring sections (commercials, shots of the judges, any scene with Mario Lopez) until we got to the talent competition. The dance routines were great (especially Miss Hawaii's Polynesian dance number) -- but the contestants with singing "talent" were so bad, we felt like we were watching American Idol. The Pea summed it all up in a one-liner that even Simon Cowell would admire:
I don't know why they sing. Everyone at home just fast-forwards through their songs -- and all the people in the audience wish they could fast-forward.
