I’m not an American Idol fanatic, but I do watch the show from time to time. I sometimes marvel at the phenomenon though – the fact that millions will watch medium to good singers perform generally crappy songs. Nonetheless, we sometimes watch. Tonight I caught the very end of the show and I saw something I haven’t seen before: A performer who I would pay money to see. I think his name is Chris something or other and he was the last performer tonight, and sang a Fuel song better than Fuel. The guy is seriously good. Really really good.
They then showed a brief montage of all ten guys singing. It was at that point evident that they ought to just go ahead and conclude the competition. None of the others were even in the same league as this guy. Did anyone else see it?
