Default Glee Versus American Idol

As a somewhat ancient mariner (notice the clever reference to cruising), ny taste in music is primarily in the 50/60's or earlier. I can't appreciate music where the sound of the band is louder than the singer's voice. Actually this may be a mercy considering the moronic lyrics and squeeky
sound of many of today's singers.

If you haven't watched Glee on Fox network on Tuesday evenings, you might be in for a pleasant surprise. It has a cast of young singers in a high school glee club with an interesting sitcom story line. There is a lot of great singing every week as part of the plot including both popular and show style tunes. I have only suffered through American Idol a few times, but the Glee singers make the people on Idol sound like pond scum in comparison . Just my opinion.

The difference for me is that the Glee performers are polished in their craft whereas the AI contestants for the most part have never been on stage before . Among this years final 5 : A paint store clerk ,construction worker ,personal trainer ,high school student

I've only seen Glee once, but did enjoy it that time. I've completely quit watching AI this year, as IMO, it's all just crap! I just find that they all sound pretty much the same to me. Same vocal gymnastics, same vocal patterns, sound THE SAME! Maybe next year (if there actually is one) will be better?
Guess I'll have to start watching "Glee" more often.
