Last week was pretty much an outrage as we saw Jared Cotter, Sundance Head and Sabrina sent home so that the likes of Sanjaya could make the Final 12.  Not that there isn't some kind of uproar every year.  But, out of the final 12, I've gotta say that I really only look forward to Chris Richardson, Chris Sligh, Gina Glocksen, and Brandon Rogers. Blake Lewis a little.

I'll predict at this time that Chris Richardson will win.  The only one that I got right in the past 3 seasons was Carrie Underwood who I called would win in season 4 at the time of the Final 12.  Last year I thought it would be Chris Daughtry.

Here's who's left that I am at all interested in watching perform:

Gina Glocksen


Blake Lewis


Brandon Rogers


Chris Richardson


Chris Sligh


I am really gonna miss Jared Cotter and Sundance. Alaina Alexander too.

I can't believe Sanjaya made it over them.  The Indian Conspiracy Theory is running rampant.  There are about 360 million Americans and about 1.1 billion Indians.  If in fact they're voting for him strictly on nationality, could it be Sanjaya is the next American Idol?  Yikes.

Dressel, tell me you don't seriously watch that shitbag of a television show.

Please.   :-\



For what it's worth, there is no international Indian conspiracy.  It's probably just because of stuff like this website.

I concur with the above... 

I love watching people humiliate themselves, quite happily, but after that it's just a lame karaoke show.

As long as you're doing something productive while it's on (like customizing) then it's ok that you watch this show Dressel.   8)

Voter atrocities?  There's a 2000 election joke to be made in there somewhere, but instead I'll just concur that American Idol is for dipshits.

I stopped thinking that way when I decided that 90% of those people humiliating themselves are actors being told to go sing like crap because it pulls in big ratings and ideally hooks people for the ****** part of the show too.

My wife loves this show, and because we only have one tv and all that "...in sickness and health" oath junk, I watch it, too. I find it mildly amusing at the beginning, and somewhat entertaining when they choose their own songs during the final 24; however, during the final-12 shows, I usually find myself falling asleep. Last night was no difference, as the theme was Diana Ross. It was utterly boring. Even her upbeat songs were made sluggish. I have watched enough to make a fairly observant guess that either Melinda or Lakisha will be the next Idol. I enjoy their performances the most, with Blake and Sabrina coming in a distant third and fourth.

I hate that Sanjaya, he sucks badly. How that black dude got out & he didn't is beyond me.
I say it's not the Indians but the gay guys of America, they all want a gay American Idol for once.

That joke Ellen made at the Oscars was pretty good... and had American Idol reference, too.

"Jennifer Hudson doesn't get America's votes and doesn't win the nomination on American Idol. Al Gore gets America's votes, but not the nomination." Something like that.... better when Ellen told it.

I gave up on AI just because it's become a popularity contest and not a talent contest. And then most of the people that win that thing are never going to be super-successful anyway.

Oh totally, Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood haven't been able to earn two blessed nickels to rub together.
