Sanjaya and the Blender Cat

Disclaimer: I realize that American Idol is just a silly TV show. Now, with that being said...

Can somebody please tell me what kind of a world we live in where Sanjaya Malakar is still in this competition??? Chris Sligh has more talent in his Rob Bell-style glasses than this kid. If the competition was between Sanjaya and a cat in a blender, the cat in the blender should win because:
a) it would sound better
b) it would be less weird

OK, I'm ranting. I admit I'm being a little unfair (I suppose Sanjaya actually would sound better than a cat in a blender.) I realize that this is a real kid with real feelings. I realize that by all accounts he seems to be a nice guy. I am simply submitting that even he must realize at this point that people with much more talent are getting voted off of the show. Tuesday, there was even someone in the crowd holding up a "Save Sanjaya" sign. Doesn't that imply that everyone knows he doesn't belong there but are voting for him out of pity so that he won't get his feelings hurt? How bad will his feelings be hurt if he actually wins the show...then the show goes off the air because it has lost all crediblility (as some are speculating)...and he doesn't sell enough CD's to buy a used car? You are ruining this kid's life! Come on, America! We showed ourselves to be musically stupid last year when we voted off Chris Daughtry. Let's not remove all doubt for the rest of the world by keeping this kid in any longer! Is that really what you want???
(End of ridiculous, frivolous, unimportant rant.)

I don't understand the hype about this show. I would rather watch paint dry then watch that show.

JP,
Basically it's television crack. You think "Why would anyone watch that?" until you do. They get you hooked with the really bad auditions...then...before you know it...you are TIVO-ing the show when you are going to be 10 minutes late...and you are ranting about it on your blog. Just say "no", JP. Just say no.

Oh Adam, does this go back to your resentment of not obtaining your dream of becoming a New Kid On the Block? I thought we were over that.

JP Manzi said...

I will admit, I do watch the first few episodes when its try-outs. Besides that, no thanks.

Adam don't let Dana fool you....we LOVED/love NKOTB!!!! As a matter of fact that is one of the reasons she married you...she knew you could have been one of the chosen five! ;)

As for AI. I have been one of those addicted few. I have watched every show from years before. Now I am just FF to the end to see who gets voted off. My pick was Chris Sligh. :(
