I miss the era when friends and families came together to watch American Idol every single week. We felt like we were responsible for helping people’s dreams come true. We got to see aspiring artists grow into household names. AI even gave us looks into the lives of these performers (back in their hometowns) and that’s what made these talents relatable. Nowadays, all you need to do is post a video on social media to go viral. I feel like that took the fun out of everything. Check out this audition tape of Jordin Sparks on Idol back in the good ole days.
