The Next American Idol

Last night episode was great. Mad kudos to Tony Bennett. The contestants handled jazz standards quite well. From the slick hair to the white suit, Sanjaya Malakar reminded me of Thu Minh’s performance of “Bong May Qua Them.” The different is that she’s a fox and he’s a grasshopper. Much as I like Sanjaya’s charm, Melinda Doolittle got my vote. She has been a constant elevation every time she takes the mic. Her rendition of “I Got Rhythm” proved that she has surpassed her competitors and will be the next American Idol. If she won’t, it’s America’s fuck-up.
