AT LEAST ONE READER OF THIS SITE WILL NOT BE FINE WITH THE DECISION: But America, generally, will move on, and I realized that as mediocre as last night's Idol was, it could have been worse -- just imagine what Chris Sligh would have done last night. Or that woman from the tryouts who did Shakira but nothing else. (Then again, why didn't LaKisha try "Whenever, Wherever"?) Or Sundance Head. Remember, America, we've got Sanjaya, but we've been spared some other atrocities.
Next week: country music, with Martina McBride.
