Melinda, before tonight's vote
Tonight, Melinda Doolittle was sent home, which is a damn shame because she's a genuinely talented singer and definitely the most qualified out of the three singers left. Yes, Blake is good at beatboxing but he sounds like a 13 year old boy at a middle school talent show. He can't dance, either. A step up from Blake is Jordin, who is adorable and vocally talented, but she should probably finish High School before she pursues a career in the music industry. The truth of the matter is, at the end of the day, neither Blake nor Jordin compare to Melinda. Despite the fact that Melinda got voted off tonight, which is only because the teeny boppers control the Idol vote (much like the governement control the media), I know she will go on to do great things, and I look forward to the release of her first albumn.
