American Idol: Speed dialing from Hawaii fails

Published 11 years ago by , Updated June 27th, 2013 at 3:06 pm,

Well little Jasmine from Hawaii finally took her leave from American Idol last night. I guess viewers wanted the two who really deserved it to go on, and jammed the phone lines to make up for the massive voting from Hawaii that brought Jasmine to the final three.

Really, La Toya should have had a shot last night, but them’s the breaks. I’m not crying over it because I’m sure that she will be getting a juicy record contract anyway. I don’t know that I can say the same about Jasmine. She gave it a great shot, but she’s not in the same league as the others.

As much as I like Diana DeGarmo, I think Fantasia is the next American Idol. It won’t bother me either… she seems to have really toned done the arrogant routine and looks like she’s now geniunely thankful she’s gotten this far.

I say best of luck to all of ‘em.

  1. Hey Jasmine, what’s Hawaiian for “don’t let the door hit you on the way out?” Her 15 minutes were over a long time ago. I especially liked how Simon practically begged America to vote her off. I’ll be shocked if she gets a record deal. Poor girl couldn’t carry a tune if it had handles. But if William Hung could get a deal… who knows?

    I’m not excited about either finalist, but if I have to choose, I would like to see Diana win. She has worked much harder than Fantasia to make it to the finals. Unfortunately, Simon has made it clear that he wants Fantasia to win. Whatever… It’s probably better if Diana doesn’t win. The sappy songs they write for the winner to sing are painful in their mediocrity. I felt bad for Tamyra Gray two years ago when she didn’t win, but now she’s writing some of those sappy songs. What’s up with that?

    For perhaps the first time, I kind of enjoyed the cheesy cover tune video on Wednesday. The irony is that “Somebody’s Watching Me” hit the charts in 1984, before Diana and Jasmine (and perhaps even Fantasia) were born.


  2. I don’t know dude… On Tuesday I thought Fantasia smoked everybody else by a mile.


  3. I agree that Fantasia sang consistently well, while Jasmine consistently sucked and Diana was hit-or-miss. But I think Diana’s strong performances are as good as or better than Fantasia’s strong performances. Also, Diana is much better suited to pop. Fantasia strikes me as more of a “raise the roof” gospel singer (which was also George Huff’s primary shortcoming).

    Just out of curiosity, when did you start liking Fantasia again? I thought you couldn’t stand the poor girl. :-P


  4. As I noted in the article, Fantasia seems to have dropped her “yeah, tha’s right, I’m the one” attitude and replaced it with a more humble one.


  5. Point taken, but it’s easier to act humble after you feel like you have “arrived.”
