There's a glaring flaw in American Idol that pretty much ruins the whole show: the audience, and not the judges, pick the winner.
A teenager who remarkably does not annoy the shit out of me, who more remarkably I actually kind of like, who is so awkward and uncomfortable on stage that it makes me only like him more, yet who can sing like a mofo, and rocks a mullet to boot, and he's the one that gets kicked off? Bullshit.
Way to fail too recognize all that is decent and good, America. You suck.
