Melinda Wuz Robbed
Quickly, because my mind ought to be on my work - Melinda Doolittle wuz robbed and I'm madder than hell. Tonight's elimination SUCKED. Blake is cute and quirky and Jordin will one day be a fabulous singer (she's a bit one note right now.)
But Melinda was heads over heels the best singer of the twelve finalists AND the final three. Jordin deserved to move forward. But Blake? Puhlease. Though I like him a lot, his voice doesn't compare to Melinda's.
Thank you for reading my rant. Here is Melinda. And here is Blake. Is there any comparison between these two voices? No. No. No. Will Blake sell CDs? One or two. However, who will have the lasting career and Simon's backing? Melinda.
Blake's predictable and tepid rendition of "Imagine."
Here's Melinda singing "I'm a Woman" like a diva.
Frankly, I don't care who wins Idol now. I won't be watching the finale.
