And I will miss you. In this dismal season of Idol, you were one of the bright spots. You have one of the richest, distinctive, and interesting voices of any Idol contestant to take the stage. I sincerely hope someone in the music industry was watching last night and snatches you up. I’ll be waiting for your album.
In the meantime, I’ll just have to be content listening to your fantastic cover of “Everybody Knows”, which – yes – I did download from Itunes as soon as it came out.
p.s. Does anyone else keep thinking that this season is just a reminder of how great last year was? With the exceptions of Crystal, Big Mike, and the dearly departed Alex, there’s really no one with equal star power and talent. Looks like I’ll be following Simon to The X-Factor next year.
Couldn’t agree more. This year the show is very weak, Simon looks bored as hell, Kara is becoming more irritating than Paula ever was (she was loopy but not pretentious and so utterly full of herself in the way Kara is); Randy is, I don’t know man, just not working for me, you know what I mean? And Ellen is funny but probably too little too late.
Once Big Mike and Crystal are gone (not until the end one hopes), I will be too. The others are too boring to bother with.
I don’t have the benefit of watching previous seasons, but agree that this season seems sleepy compared to last year. I wasn’t a huge Alex Lambert fan, but I did love Lily and was really surprised to see that both Katie and Paige beat her out to the top 12. Sheesh…
