I'd rather talk about "Lost," but really something needs to be said about "Idol."
Really, no more Daughtry?
His one-note performances were driving everyone crazy, but he was still the only one in the final four, maybe even in the final six or eight, who has any chance of ever having a gold record, much less platinum. I've backed Elliot since the beginning, but come on, nice guys do not finish first. Or second, in this case.
Taylor Hicks coulda maybe been a star... in 1978. The idea that the American public is going to line up to buy Hicks records is so not going to happen.
McPhee obviously requires no further comment.
Of course, Chris needed to want it more and actually put a little effort into this thing, but it's still a disaster of Justin Guarini proportions.
P.S. I was digging around the Web to find a Chris photo and he had exactly the same expression in every single one. Sort of proves the point, I think.
