I'm really not, and I can't stand most of the contestants--winners nor losers (though you gotta admit, despite not selling well, Ruben Studdard was absolutely precious). However, my mom watches it religiously, and last night I walked in on this performance by a fellow named Jason Castro (which, let's be serious, is awesome enough in itself):
After that, I immediately fell in love and scoured YouTube for him, and he's that good all the time. So now, I'll watch A.I. for his performances, then shut it off because I know for a fact that no one will be better.
And really--those eyes!
