America Voted and...

for once they may have got it right. Sanjaya Malakar, your fifteen minutes of fame have expired. I didn't get a chance to watch American Idol this past Tuesday, but I watched the highlights last night. All I can say is , after country night, Kellie Pickler, Bucky Covington, Kerry Underwood, and Kelly Clarkson have nothing to worry about in this years crop of hopefuls as far as competition is concerned.

I was concerned that Lakisha was going to suffer the same fate as Mandisa did last year and be eliminated during country week. Lakisha has a great voice, but I don't think America is ready for a plus sized Idol, which is a shame(fat boy speaking).

Now let's have a talent competition instead of a revival of the "Gong Show".

That was the loudest cheer I have ever heard for someone who got voted off.

Don't forget season 2 winner Ruben Studdard was a big fellow; however, big guys and big girls are viewed differently in the public eye.

From what little I've seen of this season, it seems the overall talent involved is a bit off pace from previous seasons.

To be honest, with all the production and pitch modification involved in making an album, "singers" simply need to look the part, thus possibly missing out on the truly talented voices.

I agree with Simon about Melinda...she's very talented but for crying outloud, stop acting surprised when you get complimented.
