Like it, or hate it, American Idol is a pop culture that is here to stay. Before the last season of American Idol started, there were rumors that the Producers were looking to weed out the rock singers in the competition, as they wanted American Idol to be a true Pop Singer contest. Whether this was true or not, I do not know, but the lack of rock singers in Season 6, led me to believe it was correct.
To Me, Season 6, was just about unwatchable. I am not saying that the contestants this past year were not talented. There were certainly a few good singers in Season 6, but the competition was uninteresting.
I saw a news byte today that Ari Koivunen, winner of Finnish Idol, has a released a new video for his CD, Fuel to the Fire.
After watching this video for the new track Hear My Call, it made me wonder, how is it that a country that has a population smaller than the city of Atlanta, can produce talent like this, and the entire United States can not.
What do you think about this?
