MEDIA, American Idol: Blake Lewis, beatbox & Bon Jovi

I'm not proud of it, but if I'm home there's at least a 50/50 chance I watch American Idol.

I do think it the show is pop culture multiculturalism. It may not be as good as Americans building personal connections across cultural, ethnic and geographic divisions, but it does allow the audience to connect to basically appealing people of diverse backgrounds.

Blake Lewis, from the video clip, hadn't made much of an impression on me until last night. Last night I was impressed with Blake using beat box to re-interpret Bon Jovi's You Give Love a Bad Name.

Jordin Sparks had an awful night, but if she survives will probably make it to the final three. Melinda Doolittle is a career back-up singer who is doing well. She sings great, has cuteness--although 17-year old Sparks is ubercute--and Melinda has cut weight like a football player shifting to wrestling season.

  • I just realized why I dislike that show, and so many "reality" shows. It represents the dumbing down of America, and the American acceptance of it.
