American Idol Backlash

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!
