Goodbye, Superstar

23 Apr

I’ve always known American Idol was a total crock, but tonight, with the premature ouster of Carly Smithson, the show proved again that the voters clearly don’t recognize talent. This video below is of Carly’s performance last night of “Superstar,” from Jesus Christ Superstar (it was Andrew Lloyd Webber night), and damn if it wasn’t one of the top 3 of the night (another being Syesha Mercado‘s performance of “One Rock & Roll Too Many”). Brooke White and/or Jason Castro definitely should have been in the bottom two, and one of them should have gone home. Sigh … Oh well. Goodbye, Carly. Best of luck to you.
