Don't Vote for Me
This has been the busiest year of my life. In that regards I have not been able to do many of the things I used to enjoy. For instance, I don’t watch the American Idols like I used to do. As I type on the computer, I listen, not look at the performances. Thus, I can really hear the voices. From this I knew who would go and who should have stayed. But public opinion and votes counts. So imagine how disappointing this season has been. Singers who were really good were sent off too soon and others got a major pass.
This week was the only real week I was shocked. Jason oh course, sounded horrible. But voters have been trying to send Syesha home for weeks. Truthfully to me she is the best female singer this season but neither the audience nor Simon wants her. Why! Simon wants someone who will sell Cd’s. Syesha could sell a million units but David and Ryan would sell more and have more longevity. See most of the people I know would burn a CD before buying one. This certainly affects artists like former Idols Ruben and Fantasia.
Jason has been accused of mouthing, "don’t vote for me". I wondered had he not, would the public have voted him off. Clearly he was ready to go. I think he wanted Syesha to stay because she performed way better than he did. Simon on the other hand has his mind on the money maker. Therefore, the real meaning of this show has been lost….
