#3 American Idol IS Still A Singing Competition After All!

After the votes sent both Pia and James home early, I wasn’t so sure. Seemed to be a popularity contest. But America did the right thing this week and sent Haley Reinhart home. Was she the only rock singer left? Of course, but that’s not anyway to choose who to vote for. She didn’t have as good a voice as Scotty and Lauren. Do I like country? No, far from it. But they have the best voices and that’s what the show’s supposed to be about. Finding the best voices. Glad we’re back to that!
