American Idol is dead to me now
The only reason to watch American Idol was voted off last night in one of the biggest travesties in the storied history of the show. Danny Noriega captured America's hearts with his understated masculinity and delightful flamboyance, which endeared him to millions of men and swooning teenage girls.
America flat out got this one wrong. Danny was the only contestant with the necessary balance of vocals, sass, and molten sex appeal to carry himself throughout the competition.
Now that I'm faced with throwing my allegiance behind another singer, I feel drawn to another latino crooner, David Hernandez. Though he nowhere approaches the John Wayne-esque manliness of the recently departed Danny, he does have a certain something that really speaks to me. I feel naturally drawn to him. So enthralled am I when he takes the stage that I feel prompted to shower him with dollar bills in appreciation. So if you can't be with the one you love, love the one you're with. Good luck, David.
