That guy had star potential. And I'm pissed.
But, you know, did you see him lean over to Randy, Paula and Simon and they were whispering something into his ear? Do you think...yeah, I'm hoping that, too. My daughter says that Randy has connections and I'm sure Paula does and I think Simon does, too. So, there you go.
But, still. Look, here's the way it was shaping up for me...
When the first week started, David Archuleta just blew my socks off. I kept with him for a couple weeks, then there was something about Jason Castro that really touched me. No, he's not the best vocally I think and I do believe that's because he's so soft-spoken when he sings, but he is really a truly truly charismatic and gifted singer. But, hell, they're all great and I do believe, and it's been quoted by other people, that this year had the most talented performers I've seen since I started watching the show religiously three years ago.
But in the last couple of weeks, Michael Johns...there was just something about him. He had the look, he had a fantastic voice and he had great stage presence. I know he could go far. And I believe he will.
So, looks like my favorite right now is Jason Castro. Last week, he sang a wonderful rendition of Over the Rainbow...
Now, you tell me...is this an American Idol, or what?
