Michael Tomasky

This is doing the rounds, the idea that a contestant on American Idol got voted off because she sang "Jesus Christ, Superstar", and that this violated the South\’s deep and traditional religious sense.

Hmmm.

Still:

…how southern culture and mores dominate American politics.

We were told that the South would rise again, weren\’t we?

  1. I love those ol’ Southern songs:-

    “So I stuck my finger up the woodpecker’s hole
    And the woodpecker cried ‘God bless my soul’……

  2. For my shame I watch American Idol – Canadian Idol as well, the latter is much better by the way.

    The reason she got voted off was that they all sang shite – only she was worse than the rest of them!

    Her Irish ancestry – and accent, didn’t save her – she was the better singer over the series – what you are left with is the worst of the worst – a bit like the Conservative party with David Cameron.

  3. 3 Reasons Carly got Voted Off

    1) America also has huge faith in the church of Andrew Lloyd Weber. That faith has two sacraments: Cats and Phantom of the Opera.
    2) Looks count. Carly’s horrorifying tattoos and Wal-Mart clothing tastes didn’t help.
    3) Carly is an amazing singer, but she tends towards being Ethel-Mermanesque. She got worse on that count as time passed.
