Melinda voted off Idol? She finishes third behind the talented -- but clearly less talented compared with Melinda -- Blake and (syrupy sweet) Jordin Sparks? Call it a triumph of youth voting (or youth idiocy). As in 2004, how can 60 million people be so dumb...
Update: I'll tell you how ... because young viewers voted based on "cuteness" ... the Nickelodeon factor. Result: I think Jordin will be the winner at the end of the day. Please (don't) pass the sugar.

Damn ... you ... SANJAYAAAAAHHHHH!!!!!!

Who is Sanjaya Malakar sleeping with ... and how can we get him ... or perhaps her ... deported...?

No, seriously, it helps to remember that 'American Idol' isn't really a singing competition, it's a reality show, and every year, the producers assemble a cast of 'Real World' worthy characters (typically short-handed as, "the fat guy," "the punk rock chick," "the rock guy," "the teen idol," "the black girl who really can sing but gets voted off way to early" etc.) This year, they just happened to get lucky and find two really great singers to go along with the pack. Lakisha and Melinda ARE this year's show. All the rest, is pure Sanjaya.

There is only one choice ... okay, two
You can quote me on this: whether or not she wins "American Idol," Melinda Doolittle will be a star -- no, not a star ... a major icon in the field of R&B music. You will be lining up for tickets to see her perform 20, 30 years from now. She will be on the level of a Patti Labelle, Aretha Franklin, you name it. She is THAT good. Aside from Lakisha Jones, there is no Idol contestant that can test her. Let's see if America has the good sense to make her the winner.
