Bye Chris

Chris Daughtry was voted off American Idol tonight in probably the biggest upset in Idol history. Even though I knew Chris was probably in last place this week, according to statistical sampling of the voting, it was a total shock to me... I honestly thought the numbers were wrong. Jennifer said she thought Chris was going home tonight. She was right. (I did go with her gut though when I sold as much Chris Daughtry as possible on my Inkling account.) Apparently online betting sites had gotten word of the shocking end to Chris' hopes of being American Idol.

At this point, it's pretty clear to me that Taylor Hicks is your next American Idol. I think it's also pretty clear that Chris Daughtry has a bright future ahead of him. I know it's hard to have lost something he really wanted... but he never really fit in on AI anyway. It was like watching a bunch of amateurs on stage with a superstar.

Absolutely stunning though. I wonder if there will be a bit of American Idol backlash... this guy really should have won. As much as I like Taylor Hicks, our hard drive is full of Chris Daughtry songs, and he's really a unique talent. I hope American Idol doesn't hold him to tightly to some ridiculous contract that keeps him from becoming the superstar he already is.

Not that I watch this show (other than the beginning when all the bad singers are on) but I've heard that people thought Chris was going to be safe and totally ignored voting for him.
