Goodbye, Chris

mar14_chris.jpegComplain as everyone may, Chris’ departure from American Idol is the best thing that could have happened to the show. With him gone, the fight to see who will win is interesting.

We would have respected Chris more if he had reacted with anything other than the “I’m a little shocked” routine. Why not freak out? Why not throw your arms in the air and stomp around? He was obviously convinced he had it in the bag, “a little shocked” is not enough! He could have given himself a lot of street cred had he stomped around and acted pissed. But he was voted off for the same reason he just stood there when hearing the bad news: he was boring, and it carried through right down to his final day. The world is in an uproar, of course. We will miss his big bubble butt those lovely puppy-dog eyes blinking blinking blinking away.
