(I know I’m writing this kind of late but I had some things to do and I wasn’t near my computer so I’m doing this right after walking in the door and getting my stupid internet up and running)
I’m not the kind of person that jumps to the computer to blog every time something happens that makes upset, angry or even happy. But I cannot stand for this disgrace to happen without putting some kind of word out on the net about how I feel. I now remember why I stopped watching American Idol….. The voting public can make mistakes besides we are all only human but doing it a second time makes me wish Simon was back on the show. I’m sure you know what I am talking about, Casey Abrams the most musically talented person on the show was kicked off tonight.
I’m not going to recount the whole night for you because if you saw it you know what I’m talking about and if you didn’t see it, Bruno Mars sang and Casey got kicked off, that’s all you need to know. Like many of American Idol watchers and Casey fans I thought it would be James and Casey in the finale, but alas, chalk up one more mistake to the American Idol viewing audience. This came as a shock but at the same time not too much of a shock because this vote just reminds me why I don’t watch tv much anymore. Casey proved to be a musician not just a karaoke singer but America doesn’t like someone to push them out of their nice little pop comfort zone where absurd “artists” like Lady Gaga and Britney Spears reign supreme. This man is talented because someone that looks “unconventional” never makes it very far in this competition because as we all know America is kind of shallow but mostly the producers. (exhibit A- Jersey Shore, B- Kardashians) But this guy proved he had what it took and brought it to America and for a while America loved it but why keep him around when we could keep the beautiful and completely untalented Hailey.
Maybe I’m being a bit judgmental but the part that irks me the most is that there has been no one judging this entire season….. SIMON WHY DID YOU LEAVE US with these fools. I don’t mind the fact that every contestant can sing better than JLO and Steven Tyler looks like a hobo that took the clothes out of a Sears dumpster or even that Randy hates to be demonized. This entire season has been full of praise and bias, at least Simon would say when he was a bit biased toward someone.
JLO has been the mastermind of all the subjectivity that has been going on this season. It was obvious JLO was biased toward Stefano since the beginning, spoon feeding this dude the competition, that’s why I was so happy to see him go. But she also was way too tough on the poor little Mexican girl that loved JLO so much because she played her favorite singer, Selena. I think she is truly evil for hating Karen Rodriguez so much, you could see it on her face whenever this girl would come on stage. It must be because JLO will never be truly out of Selena’s shadow, Selena is not even alive and is the reason that there is a JLO. Then in the top 6 or 7 is when JLO started to take it too easy on the girls also stating that she hopes none of the girls go home….HAVE SOME RESPECT FOR THE PROCESS YOU TALENTLESS HACK….. The judges are there to sway the publics opinion based on performance and talent not personal opinion.(or maybe I’m just an idealist) Don’t be mad because Pitbull totally overshadows you in your own song.
Then comes Stephen Tyler and Randy Jackson the wonderful YES men that never have a real opinion about a contestant unless someone else does first. Simon thrived on being hated not loved and respected above everything, that’s why his opinion mattered on the show. Don’t get me wrong I don’t dislike the two guys I like them both the same but this season just reminds me of one of those little league baseball games that don’t let anyone lose and every bit of the game is spoon fed to them so mediocrity can Finally REIGN SUPREME.
I am only a person with a computer and an opinion, hate it or hate me but the absolute truth is it’s no less/more valid than any other opinion.
