Bowing out "Gracefully"

Ok, many of you are not American Idol fans, but I am. This is not necessarily about A.I itself but one of its contestants.

The contestant in question is the famous Antonella...

When I first heard her audition I was a fan of her. She made it, when her friend did not. Her friend had formal training and Antonella did not. I was rooting for the "underdog"....but as time has worn on, I am sick of her, sick of her name, and sick of the fact that every time I turn on the News it consists of either her or Anna Nicole (but that is a whole different blog).

Has any one else heard of a web site called www.votefortheworst.com ? This website promote the worst of the worst on American Idol. There pick for female right now is.....guess? Come on take one guess....No? Ok, OK! Its Antonella.

She is staying because this website is thousands strong of people voting for her to stay on.

She knows she sucks...she knows she is only staying on the show, because of this website.

If I were her I would gracefully bow out. I would be ashamed of all the untoward media and the hype and the fact that I can't sing. I would gracefully bow out of the competition so someone more deserving could have a chance at winning.

She is cocky enough, to throw sarcasm and attitude back at the judges when they are telling her the truth about how back she sucks....did you see her roll her eyes like she was 13. As a step parent of teenagers, I wanted to smack the friggen look off her face!

That eyeroll is what did it for me too! I don't even know how she made it that far with her singing ability. She'll probably make it to the top ten just because everyone knows her so well now. UGH!

And I was really sorry to see AJ go, he seemed like such a nice guy and he sang well...

Echo said...

Yah, her singing is bad enough but it seems that the public is keeping her around for more topless/bj photos. Have you seen her photos being circulated on the internet? I think she leaked them herself for votes. At least, that's my theory.

ahhhhhhh, fortune and fame through shame.....really something you want to grow old with and tell your grandchildren about some day.....
silly little "for a split-second" stars!

I saw American Idol for the very first time a few weeks ago. My DH is now an official AI addict (he won't answer or come to the phone while it is on)
No doubt that they cut folks at the beginning who were, by far, superior to this girl. She's pretty though I haven't had my image of here tainted by exploitive internet pics yet.
In all of my ignorant bliss, I am pulling for the single mom(whose name I cannot recall)but she sang RESPECT, among others.

I got things to say on this, but I will hold back for now, friend.

Em said...

Hi Barb...I do not watch American Idol..but your post still made me laugh!

Good to hear from you. You hadn't posted in a while. Hope all has been well.

Jay said...

Yeah, she's by far the worst singer of all the girls on that show. But, that website, which of course wants to ruin AI, and those dirty pictures of her have given her enough votes to stay on so far.

It's sad really. Turns out she's just another shallow, talentless girl so desperate for attention and "celebrity" status. I have no doubt that she has a PR firm working on her behalf and they released all thos pictures of her.

But, she isn't the first to do this and won't be the last.

Meander said...

i haven't really kept up with the show but i have seen her name. it is something...all the people who have no talent are always more famous than those who do...look at paris hilton and poor dead anna nicole. why are we so mesmorized by these people?

"...every time I turn on the News it consists of either her or Anna Nicole..."

This is why I don't watch TV.

Susan- AJ did seem like a good kid, and I too was suprised to see him go!

Echo - I suppose we will see Antonella around for a while!

Singleton- If I were her this is not something I would want to tell my kids.

SLB- I am also pulling for the single mom. She has such a sweet personality!

Enemy - My friend, don't hold back on my account. lol

Em - I am well thanks you, just getting my sunny disposition back where it belongs.

Jay- I fully agree with you...I guess I will have to keep tuning in to see what happens...but she really needs to go.

Meander - People like Anna and Paris, get on my left nerve. I have drama and drama seems to follow these people everywhere.

LB- I hear ya girl!

Anne said...

I don't watch the show, but I'm constantly amazed at all the people who are famous for stupid reasons. They must become famous because a lot of people are interested in their drama. Is the general population really that stupid, to make the Paris Hiltons and Antonellas of the world into icons? It's a sad reflection on society.

Bardouble29 said...

Anne - Sister, I couldn't have said it better myself!

whimsicalnbrainpan said...

I truly hate that show!

Yes she should bow out but these days bad publicity is as good as good publicity (hey as long as you're famous), Anna Nicole is a perfect examle.

Dorky Dad said...

Here is how out of touch I am with the whole AI thing: I have absolutely no idea what you are talking about.

It's not so much of a talent show, anyway, as it is a popularity contest.

RockDog said...

I was shocked at who was voted off last week! Shocked I tell ya! Sanjaya should be gone. AJ was way beeter than him.

Antonella is a joke at best. When the ebst thing that the judges can say is that she is "at least pretty". Yeah, the rolling of the eye...what a jerk!

We'll see what happens this week. I'd be surprised if she made it another week.

You know, I want to apologize for my last comment if I sounded bitchy and harsh. I am going to delete it because I really don't want you to have the wrong impression of me. Does that make sense?

Bardouble29 said...

Enemy- I didn't get a chance to read the other comment. You have never seemed harsh to me, just straight forward, which I respect. This is a forum for all of us to be able to freely express ourselves...and you my dear are one of my favorite people.

Bardouble!
Lol, Antonella is gone now...
