Pronunciation: am erik an eye doll a ter

Sentence: It starts with auditions in several cities each season. The best and the worst are shown and voted through by a panel of esteemed judges to the next tier of competition. Eventually everyone in North America gets hooked and calls to vote for their favorites. Hitherto unknowns are all of a sudden the talk around water coolers each morning and each member of the general public will become an americanidolater. Millions of votes are cast each week until a winner is chosen. Sadly, not that many people vote in elections. Of course if the people running for office were as honest as Simon or as talented as the unknowns on stage, maybe election participation would improve greatly...

Etymology: American Idol (Pop Culture tv series where nobody's can audition their sining talents for judges and win big money & recording contracts and become overnight sensations) & Idolater (a devoted worshipper and admirer of idols)
