For many fans, last night's American Idol
results show was a shocking disappointment. Melinda Doolittle
was considered by a large portion of viewers to be the best singer remaining on the show and the favorite to win it all. These things happen on American Idol,
however, and the elimination of Melinda will just go down in American Idol
history as another of its various surprising results. Below, you will find a sampling of the hundreds of comments we've received on BuddyTV regarding last night's show.

Proof yet again that America just has no taste. Melinda was by far the best singer, I have never been impressed by Jordin's vocals or Blake's for that matter. Then again we have horrible pop stars like Jessica Simpson and Britney Spears that sound like they sing through thier noses. I just hope Melinda knows she was by far too good for this competion.

I don't think it was a shock that Melinda went, but for a slightly different reason. Her singing style is popular with only a particular segment of the population. Tina Turner may have had a great voice, but I wouldn't buy her music. Same with Melinda. I love her, and I think she has an awesome talent, but I don't like the music she chooses to sing. Bottom Line: Jordin and Blake appeal to a wider audience.
