Just finished watching Lisa Tucker get voted of American Idol 5. It's not a total shock to me. Though Lisa was, and still is, one of my favorites on the show, I saw this train coming a mile away. She's been in the bottom three for the past two weeks, not including this week. It was probablly her song choices that did her in. No one can say that she can't sing, because she can-- just look at her audition and when she sings Whitney songs. Maybe she's too young to pull off the older songs she's chosen, but the Kelly Clarkson song she chose last night might've been too new and, more importantly, she might've taken that song too seriously. I guess people wanted her to do something that made her stick out from the dumb blondes on the show. She might've been too nice, but dammit if I like nice people. You shouldn't have to have an edge, or be a whore to be in a good singer. She's a great singer, and at 16, she will mature and eventually harness that not-so-raw talent. I can't wait to see what she does in the future.
Other's, on the other hand, have survived being voted off inexplicablly. What the @#$%! Bucky?!?! I can't even understand anything he says, and it's not even just the accent. It's like there's a trailer rat in his mouth holding his tongue and making him swallow and stutter all his words. He's a mediocre singer at best. I predicted him to be out tonight, though I kinda knew Lisa was on the ropes. It doesn't even look like he'll be out soon either. Next week is country music week.
I am angry. But I wish Lisa the best.
