Asta 2

From TV Highs to Lows

Well, American Idol was certainly a let down. No, I'm not going to complain about Ruben's win. With only 1,300 votes separating them out of 24 million votes cast, it was a virtual tie. What I'm disappointed in is that the competition itself meant nothing. They chose to announce over an hour before the results that both already had record contracts. Uh, isn't that what they were competing for?

Granted, I knew they'd both end up getting contracts, but it just made the results anticlimactic. I was half expecting to see Clay shrug on stage. I think he was the most calm 'loser' in the history of contests.
