I couldn't agree more! Of course, we have to remember that this really isn't a "talent" competition but rather a "who-can-avoid-getting-the-least-votes" competition. I blame the judges for putting him in the top 24 to start with. For one thing, I'll never believe that his voice is any better than hundreds of others who never even got invited to Hollywood. Furthermore, regardless of his voice, he has absolutely no star potential whatsoever. None!
The name of the game with this television show, as it is with all television shows, is ratings. Cowell and Co. aren't stupid. They know which people to pick (for the final 24) to draw interest from the most people, and therefore we get Kevin, just as we got Federov last year.
Does anyone see the similarites overall between this year's group and last year's?
Last year's Federov = this year's Kevin
Last year's Constantine = this year's Ace
Last year's Carrie = this year's Pickler
Last year's Bo = this year's Chris
Last year's Vonzell = this year's Lisa
Last year's Lindsey Cardinale = this year's Melissa
