In the final four of American Idol, I watched how the men and women in the crowd were involved in the contestants’ performances, especially the audience’s body movement and gestures.  The women’s body movement was upbeat, highly entertaining, and their facial expressions showed happiness.  The men’s body movement was much slower.  Some had their arms crossed looking seemingly uninterested.  They showed no facial expressions, and I could not pick up what their facial expression meant.  American Idol does relate more to a feminine group, but other than being family members of the contestants, why are men showing up looking uninterested?  Is it because they don’t want relinquish their masculinity?
