Tonight is yet another American Idol night. I tell ya, I am so addicted to this program, I’ve actually gotten Pete and Ethan addicted too 🙂 American Idol is such a household name that I cannot imagine anyone not knowing what this program is. Hmmmm…well actually, a couple of years back, I had a visitor from the US who didn’t know what American Idol was all about. Could you just imagine how weird it was to explain to him what the show is and how it is run?
So anyway, this year, I hope my favorite idol, Melinda Doolittle wins. She has such a humble persona, one cannot help just liking her. And of course, as Simon Cowell would aptly remind the contestants every week, this is a singing contest. And boy can Melinda SING! She is a totally transformed person on stage and one can really feel the passion she puts into each and every performance.
However, I do not want to jinx her, as in previous years, all my favorite contestants were booted out 🙁 I was a staunch supporter of Chris Daughtry, Latoya London and Bo Bice, but they didn’t win, although they went on to do their thang and became famous nevertheless. So I’ll be looking forward what Melinda is bringing to the table tonight, and cheering her on! Melinda Do-a-Lot!!!
