“American Idol” has kind of lost my attention this year. Perhaps that’s because I watched “The Voice”, “The X-Factor” and “America’s Got Talent”. A girl can only take so many reality show competitions. I’m sure I’ll get into it again before the live shows start. I do every year. Truth be told though, I think I’m a little frustrated with Idol. Although I’ve liked people on the last few seasons (Haley Reinhart and Casey Abrams last season? Please! Love them), I haven’t gotten really excited about a winner since Carrie Underwood. The woman is so incredibly talented. It’s great to see her continuing to do so well. Of course it doesn’t hurt that she’s beautiful but she’s a lot more than that. In these pictures for a recent photo shoot, Carrie’s natural charisma shines through. She looks like a woman who loves what she does and I love that about her.
