Dear American Idol, at Least Sally Struthers Sent Me a Picture of Who I Was Helping.

By: The Dude on the Right
"American Idol" gets all self-righteous this week because now they want you to vote because your votes will click into donations to "Idol Gives Back."  We get a bunch of "tear-jerking" of how things suck outside of the United States, how things suck inside the United States, how, like those old Sally Struthers' commercials, it only "costs less than $.50 a day to feed a child," and I hate to sound soul-less, but Sanjaya is gone, I already have the charities I give my money to, and don't really care about any of the singers that are left, but here's my take on their performances anyway:

Chris: Sings "Change the World" by Eric Clapton.  Did okay but the song is boring, except for this being "charity" week so of course it fits.

Melinda: Sings "There Will Come a Day" by Faith Hill.  I still think she has been losing weight (good for her), now needs some slight dental work, but more importantly did a great job with her singing, and performing.

Blake: Sings "Imagine" by John Lennon.  First thought - You should never sing "Imagine" unless you are John Lennon.  Second thought - You should never sing "Imagine" unless you are John Lennon.  Simon saw sincerity in the performance.  He might have had sincerity, but Blake didn't seem to portray emotion.

LeKisha: Sings "I Believe" by Fantasia.  Why do they keep "squishing" her into these dresses, especially her bust-line?  She almost seems to be trying too hard in her singing.

Phil: Sings "The Change" by Garth Brooks.  Sticking with the country side since he can this week, but man, I loved Garth's version while am cringing while Phil sings the song.  It must have sounded a hell of a lot better in the studio than it did on TV because the judges seemed to have liked it.

Jordin: Sings "You'll Never Walk Alone."  I hate to say this, but as inspirational as this song is supposed to sound, on my TV she didn't sound uplifting, but rather depressing.

I honestly have to say this might be my last "American Idol" synopsis because I can't take their "we are better than the world" attitude anymore.  The reason for this comes from some of Ryan Seacrest's final lines in the show, namely "This might be the most important call you'll ever make." and "You are saving your favorite, and you are saving lives."  I could vote to save a life, but is "American Idol" going to send me a photo of the child I'm "feeding" in a far-off land?  I don't think so. I also don't have a favorite so sadly it seems all of my 300 or some odd votes that I cast for Sanjaya, while I was on the "Vote for Sanjaya" bandwagon and hypnotized by The Howard Stern Movement, aren't going to feed anyone.

That’s it for this one! I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
