The Voice has given American Idol a run for the money this year. It is the alternative singing competition show which also showcases incredible singers. The ratings have continued to surge while Idol ratings have reached a low this year. Originally, I did not like the format and stuck to watching American Idol and X Factor. But this year I decided to give it a second chance and it started to grow on me…until now.
In earlier elimination rounds, the judges sent many of the wrong contestants home which made me begin to lose interest …but I still held on. But after last nights decision by Christina Aguilera to send home Chicago’s extremely talented singer, Jesse Campbell, it sealed the deal. This was a poor choice and he clearly is a far better singer than the ones she saved. While she defended her decision tonight without a solid reason, the fans obviously were not happy with the shocking elimination and her horrible judging skills. Chicagoan’s were especially outraged!
Anyone watching the show, knew this single parent of a young daughter, should have made it to the finals. This was such a disappointment, but we all know it will only help further his career in the music industry. Remember Jennifer Hudson? That’s right, she did not make it to the end either…and has far surpassed her other former competitors.
Christina needs to take a course in judging and buy a hearing aid. She definitely made a Simon Cowell type error in judgement (remember Melanie Amaro?). What was she thinking? This should cause her to lose sleep for a while and certainly lowered her credibility as a judge.
Well, at least the show had one highlight tonight. Justin Bieber, made a guest appearance announcing the “sneak peek” his new hit song video “Boyfriend”. He also agreed to sing it during the season finale, which made the fans cheer and temporarily forget about Christina’s mishap.
Jesse Campbell will reach new highs with the news of his departure hitting the airwaves. This can only help his career…so make it happen Jesse!
Looks like I will stick with American Idol and X Factor after all. Even if Simon Cowell was robbed during a one night stand, he is still a better judge!
