We just finished watching American Idol from last week and I am pissed! How dumb is the voting public?
Seriously, it's just like Simon always says, "it's a singing competition, not a popularity contest". Sure, little David is the nicest guy I've ever seen on TV and I'm sure all the teeny-boppers love him, but are you going to buy his CD? Okay, I might buy his, but the country girl, nope. Ayesha...nope. David Cook...nope. dreadlocks...maybe. tattoo girl...nope. blonde girl...nope. I can't even think if there is anyone else.
Michael Johns was the only one up there, in my opinion, who had "star quality". You felt his songs and he performed. I felt like he really connected well and he seemed the most comfortable on the stage.
Randy called it when he mentioned several times during this around how he didn't feel the connection. Kind of like the "Shout to the Lord" mishap. Great song, no connection.
Alright, that's my rant. He was my pick for the whole thing, so I don't even care anymore.
