I was being sarcastic when I said that no one should vote. My point was that if you believe that this is a singing competition then I have a bridge to sell to you. I think it has been watered down to a looks/popularity contest. That's how the entertainment business has always been and always will be. So many "singers" out there can't truly sing. The have great stage presence, pimping, marketing, and looks. Talent is overrated. U think my beloved treasure troll Allison is at the bottom cause she can't sing? No. To me it's cause most of voting for kris, adam, and Danny. The chicks on this show are there are fodder and Allison isnt pretty enough. Sorry.
Also, there are those out there that believe that AI is fixed and that the producers manipulate the audience or even worse prepick the winners. I may not agree, but I do have to say that the show does manipulate people into voting one way sometimes. Its ironic that some contestants get no air time or little while others *cough* *cough* Danny, gets tons of camera time just because they have a great story or fit into a certain image that AI is trying to manufacture.
As for the CD's. Of course I don't expect people to crank out an album in a short time. It depends on the artist and the album. It's not the speed I was talking about. I can be patient. I was just saying that to me your not a true success unless you can pass the test of longevity and to me Kerry Underwood and Clarkson are the only two I truly give credit as reall AI success stories. The rest need time to tell or are spares who are trying to grasp onto their 15 seconds of fame *cough* *cough* Constantine....Jason cashho...err Castro.
