Can it be? Have we really reached the TOP 2 already? Every year it seems that the weeks leading up to the American Idol Finale fly by faster and faster. Perhaps the rationale is that, even after all these weeks, I still could not figure out where this show was going this season. It didn’t have a sense of purpose and personal favorites kept “topsy turvying” around in my head from week to week.
I think the talent pool was actually quite good this year; however, with so little focus on the contestants – save for Sanjaya – and their backgrounds, the show felt a little flat and predictable this season. And who here doesn’t think Jordin is going to win? Even Blake, her co-finalist wants her to win? Now, there’s a first.
Simon is walking around pouting over Melinda’s exit – and rightfully so. Usually his favorite was granted a place in the Finale, but then, come to think of it, his pick, Chris Daughtry, didn’t reach this stage last year either. He has done phenomenally well nonetheless, so, apparently, it doesn’t really matter anymore who wins this competition. Maybe that’s the rub. Don’t win, sell big! But then that would not explain Kelly’s or Carrie’s success. Oy, my head!
Okay, I’ve had my say. The ball’s in your court everyone and spoilers are warmly and greedily welcomed on this blog. (smile)
