Here on the west coast I haven't seen it yet.

So, I am pretending I never read anything on that page.


The question that I wonder about Fantasia is, is she too good for American Idol? I think she sees music as an art form and herself as an artist, and by her song selection, I think she aspires more to that than to pop diva-dom. And since she has the chops to pull it off, I wonder if she wouldn't be better off shooting for jazz or musical theater (serious musical theater, like Sondheim, not dinner theater stuff like Clay) or maybe even opera? Should she be pushing herself to something higher than silly little pop songs on the radio?

I'm not a regular watcher, but I thought last night's episode was interesting. It really is tough to sing a song like "As Time Goes By" well, unless one has lived a little bit. Teenagers affecting adult sentiment rarely come off very well. Along those lines, how old is Fantasia? I was suprised with her understanding of "Summertime". Finally, what was with all the cartoons being named as favorite movies? I can see it with a 16 year old, maybe, but when you're in your mid 20s? Somebody should have sucked up to Tarantino, named "Resevoir Dogs" as their favorite movie, and sung "Stuck in the Middle with You ", perhaps while wielding a straight-razor. It would have been worth a few laughs, at least, and Simon wouldn't have the guts to criticize it, assuming he values his ears.
