okay. clay sucks. ruben sucks. fox sucks. rupert murdoch's media empire aside, the hypocrisy of frenchie's expulsion from 'american idol' is enough to make a person boycott the station forever, a fact made abundantly clear by her showstopping performance in 'rent.'
she would have won, folks. hands down, she would have taken the cake. and eaten it too. she was everything we hoped kimberley locke would be. she was the sum of the best parts of the best idol contestants. she had ruben's ease and soulful assuredness. she had clay's piercing yet smooth high notes, sung without strain. but she also had trenyce's confidence minus kimbereley caldwell's cockiness. had she not been eliminated she probably would have been up against clay in the final round (based only on the fact that ruben landed in the botton three once) and i would have voted for her a hundred times.
i'm glad she didn't win. now she has a home on broadway for as song as she wants it.
