It would never have occurred to me that Mariah Carey was a significant force in music today. To the younger generation she is clearly the guiding light. I can't help wondering if the old fogeys on Idol--Randy, Paula, Simon--have any idea that this is the case. It's possible that they're deliberately weeding out anyone who is doing this. My advice to people trying to get on idol: stifle your Mariah Carey tendencies, at least until you are on your own.
And now I'm going to try to stifle this topic.
