I have no doubt that Syesha will land on her feet. She can sing, she can dance and she's got the look. It won't be long before she's gracing magazine covers, endorsing products, appearing on TV shows, starring in movies and singing her way down Broadway. She'll be fine. I only hope her father can stay clean. (It was good to hear him plug his former addiction to drugs and alcohol one last time, huh?).
Ok, now is it me or has Fantasia morphed into Dennis Rodman? I think Dennis may have even sported that hair color once or twice. Wow. She is one scary dude. Simon's expression said it all. Fantasia definitely puts it out there. I'm just not sure I want it, thank you very much.
I found the show thoroughly entertaining; the sap in me is all over those cheesy hometown visits. Of course, I found myself especially moved by David Cook's Up Close and Personal. How could I ever have pegged him aloof and full of himself? Shame on me. He is modest, humble, unassuming, sweet and genuine. And those are just the first five adjectives that come to mind. I could also rattle off talented, adorable, gracious, and original. I love that he didn't even plan on auditioning for Idol, and yet, here he is in the finale! A perfect ending would be for him to win it all. In a season where several of the contestants already had record contracts (and Star Search victories), how cool would it be for a guy like David Cook to win the prize?
Archuleta, on the other hand, has played semi-professional his whole life. Winning it wouldn't be a stretch for him. Not to mention it would make that freaky-ass father of his very happy and, really, he doesn't deserve to ride his son's coattails.
I'm looking forward to the finale and taking a much needed break from Idol. Paula, her breasts and her profound inspirations have become too much for me to bear. I haven't heard any buzz about the finale, but surely Fox will not disappoint....
