You get no argument from me. Poor Anoop and Lil last year were running in circles trying to follow the judges advice.Originally Posted by razorbacker;3853303;
Now that I have had my period of mourning for the lost, I have to face the facts:
- Every one of the Finalists are there because they have fans that are supporting them.
- The Idol audience today is diverse and fragmented. For every adult scratching their head and wondering how on earth Tim Urban made it, there's a teen girl that has already created a Tim Urban screensaver for her laptop and phone. We are never going to agree on who is good, much less who is the best.
So every week we will engage in fan wars via phone and text message and hope our favorite survives. I guess, when you think about it, popular entertainment hasn't changed that much from the days of the Roman Gladiators. We've just added singing.
