Waytanblee's Tree-House

Post by waytanblee »

Hi!

I'm new here and I thought I'd give my greetings to you all.

I may not post too many stories, as I'm too busy at the moment to spend such copious amounts of time on leasure, but I will try to critique as often as I can :)

Visit here whenever you want to ask me a question or bring me some food to eat. I'll keep the kettle on the stove :roll:

My my! I'd say she's already quite well versed in the local politics. :P

So I've just finished watching American idol, and lo-and-behold, David cook has won it. Now this is something I don't understand about these kinds of shows. I start watching them, pick a favorite, then come elimination day, they get eliminated. Then next week comes, I choose someone who I think has the most talent, then, BAM. Gone.

Archeleta, in my opinion, should have won by a mile! Here's my reasoning.

Firstly, archaletta is younger than Cook; secondly, he's hotter; thirdly, he has a better voice. And then you have the fact that should have blown Cook out of the water. He has the votes of the teenage population of America who completely can't go one hour without sending a text, and the backing of the commercial world who can plainly see that archeletta is incredibly more marketable!

Maybe you don't agree with me, but I think this is taking sympathy for the underdog too far. 12 million votes. Cook won by 12 million votes.

A similar thing happened in Australia last year, on Australian Idol. We had scores of talent who seemed to drop out of the sky faster than pigeon droppings at a car wash, a face off between David and Goliath, and then an appalling result.

Plain shameful.

PS, my blog request hasn't come through yet. What's with that!?
