If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

'American Idol' invades Salt Lake C

American Idol heads to Salt Lake City for tonight's audition episode. That's David Archuleta's hometown, in case you had forgotten.

Ryan Seacrest tells us they were hoping to find the next generation of the Osmonds. Lo and behold, David Osmond is 29 and the son of Alan Osmond, "the oldest of the performing Osmonds." The we learn that his father had to stop performing because he has multiple sclerosis, which is followed by the revelation that David is also fighting MS. He says that MS has a course of ups and downs -- at the lowest points, he needs to use a wheelchair and can't play guitar. He sings "Something Within Me" by Take 6. He's good, but Paula says it wasn't the best song choice because it's a group song and didn't showcase him as a frontman. They all give him very constructive criticism, which we are supposed to take as him possibly getting no votes. But he comes out of the door with a golden ticket, which is no surprise

He was somehow involved in/with Aimspro, yes?

Gee I missed tonight's show. It makes me wonder, if so many mser's are among the population, why don't the famous sufferers use their name to endorse fundraising?

Maybe some have and I'm out of the loop. I know about Montel and his advocacy, but there are so many more affected by this.

My thought is simply not why, but why not?

Napay,

That's an affirmative. When you go out to his page on the net, he is the Aimspro guy.

With two family members having M.S. and such a large family, the Osmonds would make a great case study.

You know, I would not watch that show for the first couple of years. Then during the Hollywood week in season 3, I watched it for the first time. I must say that show is addicting. I think the Osmond kid is really good, but there are some killer singers on there this year. That skinny Indian kid just freaks me out. His voice DOES NOT match his appearance. And the guy that looks like Robert Downey Jr. that lost his wife. And the black kid that has some sort of back story about taking care of his mom. Man, it sure seems like there are a lot of great singers in the mix this year.
