American Idol contestant disqualified
For those of you who are actually interested in watching American Idol, it's actually a great show. I stopped watching it during Season 2 when the whole Clay Aiken vs. Ruben Studdard was going on. I lost interest, even though the Fox-produced show continued it's schtick that gained a devoted audience. For me, I thought the show focused more on looks than talent but that seems to have changed this year. This year, it really is all about the talent, which is more interesting to watch than some of the dreadfully bad auditions. I mean, by Season 8, most Americans ought to know whether they can sing or not and whether they can stand the praise or humiliation of being on national television. And where would the show be without the drama?
According to this article: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/29161480/ Joanna Pacitti has an extensive music background, has sung on two movie soundtracks and put out an album. Some Idol fans are complaining that she has an unfair advantage over the competition but I think the producers knew enough to allow her to move forward before she signed the contract. I say, keep her on the show. Seriously, most contestants on the show disappear after the season and we never hear from them again. This means a lot to Joanna and if her "success" was that sustainable, then maybe she wouldn't have gone on. Or is it another publicity stunt? I predict that the 10's will be the decade of the return of the 15 minutes of fame. There will always be people seeking fame but this season, the high-jinks aren't really needed because the cast of aspiring singers are really, really good. So, check it out.
Until Next Time,
