After trying out the "American Idol Encore 2" video game at a friend's house last week, I decided I had to have it. I ordered it on Tuesday and checked the status each day to see when it might be here.
It arrived today.
I spent 2 hours singing and being judged by little versions of Randy Jackson, Paula Abdul and Simon Cowell. It was a real ego boost. No matter how badly I did, even Simon kept telling me I was "meant for Hollywood" and "took a boring song and made it better."
Of course, I had it on the "easy" setting. Maybe tomorrow I'll try something harder.
