Was there ever any doubt? Over the past few weeks, these two singers were deemed the chosen ones.
Although, I feel that, for many reasons, they deserve this prestigious honor, I am still upset that the process was not an honest one. The manipulative games are becoming far too obvious.
I, for one, am thrilled that the producers are working hard behind the scenes to make sure that major changes will be in place for American Idol next season. And it’s about time!
Crystal and Lee are not to blame for this; they gave honest performances every week and have worked tremendously hard to refine their craft. I have noticed the tremendous changes in their technical skills from Day One and, if nothing else, it proves that they do listen and take advice from the wonderful resources surrounding them.
So, Crystal and Lee, this is your moment – embrace it, relish it and savor every moment. Your work ethic, sincere demeanor and vocal talent have allowed you to achieve your dreams of success through the American Idol process. Although this is only one step towards great success, it is a very large one and is cause for celebration! I am truly excited for both of you!
Best of luck to both of you tomorrow evening and, to my loyal readers, please feel welcome to add your comments before, during and after the live telecast on Tuesday, May 25th.
