Bev and I have kept an eye on American Idol. We haven’t been able to watch it much, but we have monitored the results.
We already knew that Melinda Doolittle was a huge talent that deserved to win. Plus we enjoyed hearing her powerful and lovely voice.
But stupidity and style points are what won the day. NOT talent. Wednesday night she got booted off because of fickle voters who clearly wouldn’t know a singer from a hole in the ground.
This result plus the untimely exit of other talented people proves that this show is not about ability. I’m no longer curious about the outcome. It’s meaningless.
