It is kind if sad that this really isn't a true talent contest as it is a popularity (for better to worse) contest. That is too bad. There is some serious kick ass talent out there that is being overshadowed by a few (ok, one) not so good.
Blake - great to look at and great voice.
Melinda - The new American Idol.
Chris - all yours FSDPDC.
Kiki - runner up and will get some sort of contract with someone.

I'd venture a guess there's far more money in it for the producers from the TV show, tours, and other ancillary revenue than there is from selling a million CDs by the winner of the show.

But anyone with real talent, regardless if they're the winner or not, will go onto something great. Jennifer Hudson is just one example--she was the 6th of the top 12 to be voted off in Season 3. What has Fantasia Barrino done in comparison? Not much.
That is entirely an opinion. But since Sanjaya is still on, and people like Sundance and Stephanie are off, that is still viable.
This thread is about American Idol, as in the US, we do not get other Idol shows (those possibly being true talent), the UK version is relatively unknown. By all means start a thread about UK Idol. If it were shown here, there'd be more to talk about. It's all good.
Since people text their votes (voting multiple times at that), popularity (for better or worse) plays a huge part. How is that talent?

Quoting AsstChiefMark (Reply 18): OK. I have my computer programmed to constantly redial Sanjaya's voting number for two hours after tomorrow night's show. All I have to do is enter whatever his number is and let her fly.
