Inexplicably, the same question popped out from many AI fans each time a very good vocalist/performer was eliminated so soon like: Colton Dixon, a total performer; Skylar Laine, powerhouse country singer who is far better than last year's always-out-of-tune AI first runner up (can't remember her name); and Joshua Ledet, a soulful yet over the top singer.
Below is the original post (hehehe recycling huh!):
This was the question that I sent out to the experts.
Is America being smart nowadays in choosing their next American Idol?
A talent judge at fundraising events in America has replied to my query:
Dumb to think America's not smart!
I think America has a natural sense of who is talented, and they are willing to spend hard earned cash on their favorites to prove it, buying CD's and attending concerts. I think its silly to think America's not smart enough too pick winners, in
I'd dare say, last night's American Idol result contradicts that statement. Don't you think? And, this is not the first time that the best vocalists in AI are out voted. Why is that?
It takes incredible and outstanding talent to be able to sing Whitney's hit song, "I Will Always Love You" like Jessica did a few weeks back. If you don't consider this an amazing talent of hers, then you are absolutely clueless! Yes, I'd dare say that too!
Do voters go for the looks? The charm? Or the cuteness factor? If not for these, why the best vocalists are usually eliminated and not even reaching the finals?
Are you an American Idol fan? If you are, what do you consider in voting? Or do you vote at all?
As Randy Jackson's plea last night,
This girl (Jessica Sanchez) is one of the best singers in America ...ever!
Everybody, please vote for the best!
Obviously, he was referring to vote for Jessica Sanchez.
Others disagree to Randy's statement that Jessica is one of the best singers in America. But, "these others" don't have a clue either who is the best among this year's AI contenders. Now, if you disagree to Randy's blatant statement, who's got the best vocal and most professional among them?
When Ryan Seacrest announced which group was in the bottom three, the other group looked too astonished to move and claim their "safe" seats. It's obvious that they were expecting to be in the bottom three. Whether they admit it or not, they know that the other three (or two: Joshua and Jessica) are the best among them.
I think one of the reasons that Jessica was outvoted is that her fans, themselves, were slacking in supporting her. Not all AI fans are devoted in voting for their idol. They would clap and cheer but not bothering in spending some time to vote.
Are you one of these AI fans who do not bother to vote?
