American Idol Voters are Hopeless

Are you kidding me, America? Seriously? Colton Dixon is going home, and I think I want to vomit.

This is what I hate about the concept of a Judges' Save. It totally throws things out of orbit the next week. The ones who were in danger last week (except Elise) were in the clear. I'm not surprised. Their fans got on the stick and voted like crazy. 

But Colton? Granted, this wasn't his best week. But he has so much talent. I didn't love his Bad Romance rendition because I prefer him behind the piano. I actually enjoyed his September. I thought it was unique and in his style.  I just don't get why the judges need over the top dramatic builds and glory notes in order to truly back a contestant.  Not every song demands that, and very few singers today on the radio deliver that.

It's like my post from last week is prophetic with a slice of Karma.  I knew something like this would happen.  This isn't my first Idol rodeo.  I'm just disgusted that my favorite is the one who had to pay the price.  

I wish I could say that I'm done with Idol this season.  But I'm not.  No Idol result could cause as much mental devastation for me the 2009 season when Adam Lambert lost.  I was completely non-functional for a week.  I'd like to throw something at the TV, give my two cents to the judges,  and deliver a strong tongue lashing to all those who jumped off Colton's ship.  But instead, I'll just have another glass of wine and continue with this post.  And go into next week's show with a really bad attitude.

Understand this, Elise, Holly, and JESSICA, I will power vote like crazy in the hope you are the next three to go.


  1. Thank you! Completely agreed.

    1. Every time I think about it, I get all angry again.

  2. Okay, I hadn't watched the results yet and now I'm all fired up!


Add your two cents.
