|Many were shocked that Melinda Doolittle was eliminated from the Finals but I was ecstatic. During the Final 3, my pecking order were 1st – Blake, followed by 2nd – Jordin and 3rd Melinda.It was cruel that the most talented singer who was Melinda went out but in this cruel world, talent alone does not bring success.|
Melinda has undoubtedly the best voice amongst this year’s competitors in the American Idol. She was way ahead of the pack when it came to voice control and quality of singing but over the past weeks, she has proven to be boring, absolutely boring. Unfortunately she peaked right at the beginning of the series and fell plat on a plateau ever since. There was absolutely nothing new. She was good but she just couldn’t command the “wow” factor! It was like having an absolute overdose of the very best Cabernet Sauvignon, so much that a simple can of Guinness proved to be welcoming.
It would be dreadful to imagine Melinda in the Final two as it would be impossible to judge a competition between Jordin versus Melinda or Blake versus Melinda where the contrast would be just too great. At least, with a Jordin versus Blake finals, it would still be an interesting contest.
I think this year’s American Idol was really rubbish when came to quality and no one really deserves to win. However, But there are still some enjoyable moments from this year’s series and these were my favourites:-
|Best Entertainer Sanjaya Malakar||Classiest Act Stephanie Edwards||Best Packaged Haley Scarnato|
Who will win in the Finals? Jordin or Blake? I have no preference. But my money is on Jordin because I think the Melinda fans will swing their votes for Jordin.
