My Idols

America voted, and .......... wait a minute? Melinda? They think Blake is a better singer than Melinda???? Snif. Thanks, America.

So anyway, the blogs are saying that Blake beat Melinda because of all the teenage girls who are clogging up the phone lines voting for him, convinced that if they vote enough times, Blake will somehow magically find out and show up at their house and whisk them back to Hollywood, declare his undying love for them on live national tv, and then marry them.

Sigh. Remember what it felt like to be that age? My teen idol was David Cassidy. Or wait, was it his younger brother, Shaun? No, I'm pretty sure that it was David. Remember Tiger Beat magazine? Do they still publish that?

Oh, and I had an odd (REALLY ODD) attraction to Marjoe Gortner. I read his biography when I was a kid and he just fascinated me. Because I was an odd, odd kid.

Now, if you click on "Marjoe Gortner", above, it should link to his Wikipedia entry. Hopefully. I thought a learning a new skill would be appropriate, seeing as how this is my 200th post and all. Thanks, Marjoe!

Gosh, I was a weird kid.

You've hit the nail right on the head! "America" isn't voting, the teenaged girls of America are voting. You could almost foresee one of the girls going last night, right? I think Phil Stacey should be where Blake is right now. I don't mind Blake, but he doesn't hold a candle as a singer next to either Melinda or Jordin, in my opinion.

Jordin has been my pick to win this competition for the last 6 weeks or so, even after the Bon Jovi fiasco. I think Melinda is technically a great singer, but I don't feel the emotion coming out of her that I do from Jordin. She's inexperienced, but with some training and age, I think Jordin has the potential to be a superstar.

Thanks for stopping by my blog :)
