It's not the economy. It's not the promotion or lack thereof. It's not the "suits". It's not the time of year, the shipping status or anything of the sort. Lee just wasn't that good a singer or performer. Most people could see this train wreck coming miles away, but the rabid voters just had to do it didn't they? Lee will be like Blake Lewis...he'll pop up every now and then then disappear into oblivion. Season 9 was awful...I am looking forward to season 10 and all of Nigel's changes, but if they end up with a bunch of Justin Bieber wannabes, or another group of talentless hacks, I can always find something else to watch!
Seriously, Are you kidding? If you went by the first week sales of Idol albums then the highest of a finalist is Clay Aiken who outsold Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood by a near three hundred thousand...do you think Clay has had a more successful career than these ladies? If you went by first week sales then Taylor Hicks would now be more successful than both David Cook AND Fantasia...these numbers mean NOTHING and personally I wish the music critics would find something else to write about because it is SO misleading and look at the numbers and look at the careers today...you write about it and you know it means ZIP...Come on. its time to move on guys, why not write something positive like a decent review?? Don't be FOOLED by first week numbers people, look at that list....Clay Aiken and Ruben Studdard buried Adam Lambert in first week sales....uh, okay then....means not one thing towards a career!
It came down to album sales overall slumping, and what was widely
considered the worst season in AI history. It has absolutely nothing to do with the album itself. I think the album is actually fantastic. I am a BIG David Cook fan.. and I actually prefer the music on Lee's album. If people just gave it a chance, they would really like it. ALSO, I bet if we counted the people who illegally downloaded it.. the numbers would be much higher.
Also, I'm not a pre-teen.. or a teen for that matter. Far from it.
LOL Crystal's album sales will speak for themselves. She has loyal fans. Not a bunch of pre-teen girls that voted hundreds of times and than continued following Justin Bieber right after the show finished. Crystal is 1 in a million. Lee is talented but he's just another singer with a raspy voice and no personality.
LOL I called it. It comes down to this guys... Lee had a bunch of little immature pre-teen girls voting for him hundreds of times a night. As soon as he won they all forgot about him. They were happy to see him win but their focus was still on Justin Bieber. So the day of his release comes around and none of these girls had any idea. On the contrary, Crystal Bowersox has LOYAL fans. They appreciate her music and personality. I'm from Chicago and I like Lee but his music is EH... But Crystal Bowersox is special. For those of you who like Lee's music, its decent. Nothing against the kid cause he's definitely talented but go to Youtube and check out Crystal's originals if you want to be "blown away". Her album sales will speak for themselves, trust me on that.
