Surprising Turn of Events on ‘Idol’ by idontknowmuch


Michael Johns was eliminated last night, to the shock of just about everyone. While I agree that Johns probably didn’t deserve to be eliminated last night, it is understandable when you think about it. Lets break it down logically.

He really hasn’t wowed the audience in a few weeks. Meanwhile, David Cook has somewhat stolen some of the votes he may have been getting because they are somewhat similar and Cook has been better the last few weeks. Think of it like a political election–certain groups are going to vote for certain candidates. Cook and Johns were both somewhat older, good-looking, rocker types who appealed to a certain audience. While that audience’s votes for Johns and Cook may have been more split in past weeks, the recent success of Cook and the relative poor showing by Johns last week probably caused a lot of those people to switch to Cook, leaving Johns with no ‘voting base’, as it were.

Kristy Lee Cook is the least-talented singer left of the group. I think thats clear. But the thing Kristy has is a defined niche. All the country fans are going to vote for her, and no one else in the competition are going to get the country vote. So she can afford to suck for three or four weeks in a row, because her style is going to appeal to a large group that isn’t voting for anyone else in this competition. Also, it doesn’t hurt that she’s pretty easy on the eyes.

As for the rest of the remaining Idol wannabes, I think its clear that David Archuleta is going to be around until the end. I’m not a big fan of his. But you can’t deny his talent, and he is going to get the ‘screaming-little-girl’ vote from here on out. Jason Castro is probably my second-least favorite singer left; but again, women love him. And women are the ones who are going to vote for this damn thing. So I think he’s going to stick around.

I think it says a lot about the flaws of ‘American Idol’ when yesterday’s bottom three–Syesha
, Michael, and Carly Smithson–were not the three worst pure singers left in the competition. This isn’t a singing competition–its an entertainment contest. People get so upset about the ‘wrong’ person getting voted off because they are a better singer than so-and-so; but they don’t realize this is a popularity contest, not a talent competition.

If I had to choose the bottom three based on talent and entertainment value alone, my picks would be Kristy Lee, Jason, and Syesha, with Kristy Lee getting the boot. But no one is asking me for my opinion. I just write it in a blog.

(Oh, and one more thing… I the only one who thinks Carly’s tatoos are horrible? She would be ridiculously hot if it weren’t for all the ink. Her accent drives me crazy, its so sexy. But all the attention is drawn to that arm. Its like she did time at Folsom or something.)

Ooooo…..This Is Awkward by idontknowmuch


OK Magazine is reporting that American Idol favorite David Archuleta has disappointing news for his many young female fans:

Millions of young hearts broke on Tuesday night when a mystery lady appeared in the American Idol audience with David Archuleta’s family. The finalist even hinted live on air that he hopes the shy brunette is going to be his prom date.

Well, just because he might want a certain girl to be his prom date doesn’t mean David’s fans should think that they have less of a chance with him, right? Lets look further into the article:

Just three weeks ago, David told the myFox Boston website that he’s still too young to have a girlfriend……..”I’m not really worried about getting a girlfriend,” he said. “I’m still too young for that”.

Well, thats perfectly normal. While most 17-year old guys think ONLY of sex, some are late bloomers who are focused on other things. Yes, I’m sure thats it. Well, lets be sure:

But it’s apparently not so for his younger siblings back in Utah. “My brothers and sisters, on the other hand, all have boyfriends and girlfriends,” David said. “I guess I’m weird!”

Ahhh. I see. Yes, that is what you are……..”weird.” You know, I’ve watched the show and noticed that David is, how you say, somewhat soft. Now that I hear he isn’t interested in a girlfriend at 17, even though he could be knee-deep in underage ass if he wanted…….yeah, folks, this dude is gay. He’s Clay Aiken part II.
