American Idol 2011: Most Marketable Finalist Wins
Being that American Idol is allegedly rigged, who is the most marketable finalist remaining? I think the answer is clear to everyone as Lauren Alaina can swing both the country crowd as well as the pop genre. She may not be the most talented contestant remaining but at the end of the day, it’s about selling records and making money…right? If we were looking for the best “musician” then Pia Toscano and Casey Abrams would not have been eliminated. What do you all think about this? Is Idol just one big popularity contest, overlooking raw talent for marketability?
Out of the final three American Idol contestants left, Haley Reinhart is the best as far as musical talent goes. While Randy Jackson and Jennifer Lopez bash the poor girl for reasons that don’t even make sense, they praise acts such as Stefano Langone who has marketability but lacks any sort of talent. It’s still unclear as to whether or not the show is rigged but after tonight’s live results show, we will definitely find out. IF Haley Reinhart is eliminated, leaving Scotty McCreery [who is good but ONLY at country music] and Lauren Alaina [shes young and decent but highly marketable] then we will know the judges were out to get Haley and if the show is rigged or not.
What do you all think? Do you think the American Idol producers and judges favor the marketable contestants over the ones with raw talent? Do you even think the judges are credible enough to tell some of these contestants they are bad? Comment below!
