Why is she still on this show?
No really. Really. I've already posted today - but I just watched the tail end of American Idol (the only part worth watching on the elimination show really- they milk that thing for an entire HOUR! Geez! At least cut it down to a 30 minute segment!), as I was waiting for a NEW EPISODE OF THE OFFICE! YES! There are a handful of shows I enjoy watching. The Office being one (so happy it's back!) LOST, and yes, American Idol. I enjoy the performances and it's far far far less drama than most (read ALL other) reality shows. Of course I have my preferences...I like my Utah Boy (rep-re-sent!) David Archuleta, cute doll face Brooke White, and Irish sista Carly Smithson. As far as the others go, I'm mostly indifferent. BUT there is one particular contestant I can not SERIOUSLY understand WHY she is STILL on this show. I can not believe that Kristy Lee Cook has made it this far. I really can't. I mean she's a cute girl, but nothing particularly amazing. Which is fine IF she had some amazing memorable voice. Buuuuuut - she doesn't. No really. She reminds me of the beauty pageants I used attend with my mom in Emery County; somewhat entertaining, a lot of big country hair, big country teeth, tight wrangling jeans, and mediocre talent. Yes. I really feel like Kristy Lee Cook is forgettable. I know that sounds very "Simon-esque." I'm also aware that some of you may be thinking "oh really..well why don't YOU sing something." But I didn't try out for a reality show based on my singing talent for the world to critique. And yes - she sounds nice - buuuuut not making it this far into American Idol nice. No no. She should've been gone WELL before cute rocker Michael Johns. That's for SURE! I feel she cheated when she sang "I'm Proud to be an American." How is anyone going to vote her off after sing a song like THAT at a time like THIS! A liiiiittle sketchy I'd say. She just keeps slipping through! So come ON America - really, we gotta get serious here. Because this is very serious. It's the next AMERICAN IDOL we're talking about! Do we want another Taylor Hicks or Ruben Studdard? No we don't! She's been in the bottom 3 more than any of the other contestants - lets break that pattern and come through on our WORD! Time's up!
