American Idol may have done it’s dash after popular rocker James Durbin was voted off tonight.The backlash from fans could see the show’s finale turn into an enormous fizzle as angry viewers take to the forums venting their disapproval.Many are denouncing the show as “rigged” or “Country Idol” and vow never to watch it again. This follows last nights fiasco where one of the contestants, Haley Reinhart, chucked a wobbly after JLo and Randy gave her a bit of constructive criticism. This incident probably lead to James’ downfall as he was singled out as the one to beat. There are also suggestions there was confusion over voting numbers last night after they suddenly changed the order of the performers. Always a friggin conspiracy!
The show will now have two country singers and one very smug Reinhart (who is copping it bad on the forums) fighting it out in the finals in two weeks.
For those of you unaware James Durbin suffers from a mild form of Autism (Asperger) and Tourettes. His appearance on Idol gave many who suffer the same infliction hope and belief that they can follow their dreams no matter the obstacles. For this I think James already won. Now go and make a record.
Psst I for one won’t be watching it because it’s like friggin Disney Channel now!
This is my favorite part of American Idol, when some kid posts his mom’s reaction to the finale on Youtube. Priceless! And the winner is ….
OK loons, you know I love watching Idol, I back anything that gives young hopefuls a chance to break into the recording industry (even if it means selling their soul). But if Idol had any smarts they would get Crystal off the damn show and straight into a recording studio ASAP. She is a gem who doesn’t need to have this show whacked on her resume. She is vulnerable, talented and also quite ill (diabetes). She hasn’t got anything more to prove, save us the agony and just give her a recording contract already!
Oh Boy, Hitler is pissed General Larry Platt didn’t get through to Hollywood…
This ones for you Sekan….Move over William Hung we have a new legend. Pants On The Ground has become a friggin YouTube phenomenon thanks to some expiry dated American idol audition dude by the name of General Larry Platt. 62 is the new 25.
Just a little recap if you happened to miss it
oh and even Neil Young Fallon got into the act FFS.
and it just keeps coming….
An obsessed fan and rejected American Idol contestant found dead outside Paula Abdul’s home, well that’s was bound to happen.Just by the pure nature of American Idol’s format and large audition process it is going to attract the occasional delusional rock star wannabe or obsessed fan. Unfortunately this one chose Paula Abdul to obsess over (as if she doesn’t have enough to worry about). Paula Goodspeed had auditioned for season 5 of the popular talent show but had been pretty much been laughed out of the audition, ah but not before she spoke of her infatuation with Abdul and Simon made several comments about all the metal in her mouth .It has been revealed that Goodspeed had suffered from an “extreme mental illness” for several years and her apparent suicide/overdose was no surprise to people who knew her. The car in which she was found featured a license plate reading “ABL LV” and had a photo of Abdul hanging in the rear-view mirror. According to police she had overdosed outside Abdul’s house once before, in the exact same spot. Abdul had rung the police numerous times after seeing the same car parked in the street. Sad ending RIP.
