Give Til it Hurts


After several successful seasons which have enabled Fox to essentially print money, American Idol has decided to use their power to raise awareness about poverty in Africa and at home in the United States.  This is all good but why do I feel so cynical about it?  When Seacrest celebrates the big $5 million dollar donation from News Corp, why do I scream at the TV that $5 mill from them is like me throwing a homeless guy a toonie.  Why am I so jaded?

Oh yeah, the final six sang on AI last night, too.  They sang songs from the masters of our time, everyone from John Lennon to Fantasia.  Here's how I've ranked them.

Here are my three favourites from last night:

  1. Jordin Sparks
  2. Melinda Doolittle
  3. LaKisha Jones

Here are my three least favourite from last night:

  1. Phil Stacey
  2. Chris Richardson
  3. Blake Lewis
