I’m ready for American Idol to be done

I don’t think that the show is encouraging the right things, especially in younger singers, who are hoping/trying/desiring to be a vocalist. I think the show is having a negative affect when it comes to “what sounds good.” It’s making kids think that they have to belt and scream in order to “have a good voice.” Maybe I’m wrong, but none of the contestants do anything to show off a more delicate side of the voice. Women don’t flip into their head voices, guys are screaming to hit high notes, and don’t even get me started on Sanjaya. Seriously? Maybe Sanjaya’s longevity on the program illustrates the folly of the program.

“I didn’t like your vocal because you didn’t scream enough.”
