American Idol Results Recap - Melinda Voted Off
Tonight's results show is all about last year for me. Elliott Yamin hit the stage to sing and I all I could think about was how much more enjoyable this show was a year ago. Oh sure, I was heartbroken when Elliott was voted off at the final three, but a week later it didn't matter when he got the thrill of a lifetime and sang "One" with Mary J. Blige on finale night.
It's hard to imagine that this year's finale night will be anywhere near as good, when, truth be told, this whole season has been a bust.
At least we'll get to see Sanjaya again. But I wouldn't count on The Hoff being in the crowd.
On to the results. In what will be billed as a "shocker" and "racist" (by some asshats) Melinda is voted off. Don't be surprised. Melinda is technically a great singer and seems like a delightful person, but she's just not someone that you get excited about. I'm sure she'll go on to have a great career, but an American Idol she is not.

|James, You were right, I was wrong. I stand in awe.
I was surprised that Melinda went home. I remember in the beginning when there were 12 everyone had a Melinda Lakisha finale.
PMW, you nailed it. This season has been a bust. It has sucked badly. Last season there were so many compelling people, from McGee to McPhee. Taylor, Chris D, Elliot and the rest. Dang, any of those would be preferable to Jordin/Blake. When Sanjaya is your most compelling/interesting person, your season is in serious trouble.

|Rats, I should read more carefully. Change the above to Kris, you nailed it.
