Again Randy, Paula and Simon have attempted to crown Fantasia Barrino the America Idol. This is not good because the audience may choose Diana Degarmo via a backlash in the same way that they chose Jasmine over La Toya.
In my opinion, Diana is a better middle-of-the-road singer/performer than Fantasia who gives a "gospel/R&B rendition" each time out. However, I wouldn't like to see Diana selected American Idol for the wrong reasons.
The weakest thing about American Idol has been the lapdog and/or negative adjudications of the judges. Don't you think that successful music people like Dick Clark, Don Kurshner or Barry Gordy would do better?
