This is one of those newcomer performances that comes along in a blue moon.”

What Are The ‘American Idol’ Voters Thinking?

I was shocked, I mean flabbergasted at Jennifer Hudson being cut from ‘American Idol’ this week. What a farce! The three most talented singers in the history of the competiton were in the bottom three. What’s going on? I can’t believe that such a talent had to go. This is so backward.
