Once again, it’s up to your friendly neighborhood TV Addict to take America to task.
Carly Smithson, seriously? I mean sure, Smithson doesn’t have a prayer of beating the unstoppable Davids, Archuleta and Cook in the final three [who does?]. But at least she seems to care. Who wasn’t reaching for the kleenex box during her emotional farewell video in which she choked up talking about the dreams that have slipped through her fingers? [And speaking of farewell videos — Ruben Studdard’s ‘Celebrate Me Home’ — worst IDOL exit song ever.]
Conversely, there’s Jason Castro, who seems so uninterested in remaining in the competition that he actually yawned on camera! Now I’m no Michael Slezak [official IDOL historian], but has that ever happened on the show? Could Castro look less interested? Is it not time America sends him packing, before he further destroys the reputation of dreadlocked hippies everywhere.
