I should probably be writing about writing, but today, I thought I'd express my thoughts about American Idol. What happened to Chris? I couldn't believe it! I have said all along that I thought Chris and Katherine would be the last two standing. And after Tuesday night's performance, my hubby and I who love Katherine too, decided she needed our votes. So, we voted 20 times, hoping to keep her in the running. Whether you like her or not, she does have a wonderful voice and can sing. Did any of you feel she'd been sort of sabotaged by the "Elvis" night. Don't get me wrong, I love Elvis. I'm probably one of his biggest fans, but even Simon said that Kat was coming into the night at a disadvantage.
So, maybe others like myself, thought we'd better pick up the phone and vote, vote, vote. I never thought that Chris (whom I think has the best male voice) would be ousted. Never. He was the odds-on favorite in Las Vegas. But maybe everyone knew that and felt like I did, that he had a strong enough fan base to keep him in.
Okay, so I'm making a big deal out of this. But what I love about our country and about American Idol, is that we have a voice, a say-so as to who should win and whose life will be dramatically changed by our choice.
It's hard to see anyone go off the show after going on the journey with them. All are different. All are unique. All can SING. I'm even considering going to their summer tour, when it comes to my area. But most definitely, it won't be the same without Chris and those beautiful brown eyes.
