I know there are Christians opposed to both the music of the show as well as the "Idol" in the name, but I've noticed that, relatively speaking, it's a clean show. It appeals to a wide range of people, including many teens and tweens, and the language is generally G rated, PG at worst. Sex, violence, drugs, and the like are nonexistent in its present format. Overall, very wholesome... assuming the whole rock star thing isn't a foregone conclusion for the negative. As to the singing, well, some try. Some are actually good. I feel, though, that I have to watch too many performances I don't enjoy to find one or two that I do. AI is a neat concept but I'm not, and never will be, a committed fan. What says ye?
