I felt like it got me back in the mood for a new season of Idol (which starts Tuesday). When Paula and Randy were judging, it felt just like I was watching the show. They spout the same lines that they do on TV. It was surreal, though, getting comments from Simon. I was, as I mentioned, in easy mode, and even got a perfect score a couple of times (somehow). So everything Simon said was relentlessly positive. It was odd, but I was certainly amused to be told I had everything it took to be a star after warbling my way through "Life is a Highway." Sorry, Cowell, I don't think so.
