American Idol Returns Tonight

Fox’s juggernaut of a show is back tonight with its seventh season (and it seems like only yesterday when we were all obsessed with little Kelly Clarkson). Of course, people from around the country came by 43-hour bus trip, lost their jobs and even sacrificed their children (for a few days at least), all for the chance to be a part of the nation's biggest reality competition. Hear from a group of Idol wannabes as they describe what they gave up just to give it a go. Hey, if all else fails, it’s a story to tell your future grandkids (considering the show will probably still be airing then). Watch it now! | More online videosYour take: Will you be tuning in tonight? Or were you fed up from the Sanjaya insanity last season.
