Fantastic Fantasia

Well, the dust finally settled on the third installment of American Idol, with Fantasia Barrino taking the top honors, receiving the majority of sixtysome million votes tallied last night. North Carolina native Fantasia is a talented singer who's been frequently compared to Macy Gray and Aretha Franklin, and edged out Diana Degarmo.

Recall that according to Elton John and blogger Justin Felux, this outcome was simply not possible.

Personally, while I think Fantasia is among the best, I thought this young lady was the best of the Top 12, but I'm sure she'll have a nice career ahead as well.

Ghee, I wonder if Elton John

Ghee, I wonder if Elton John will be man enough to admit the was wrong about his racist comment about the people of America being racist in their voting on American Idol. I also guess that Ruben Studdard was just a fluke. Apparently Mr.John took one too many drugs and fried his brain along with his memory! Elton John needs to make a public apology to America and in paticular "White Americans". Will he? I seriously doubt it. The only way is if the media puts some sort of pressure on Mr.John but since he is white and his comments were directed towards whites it will never happen! The media, especially the liberal media, doesn't have the balls!

You know it's really sad that all these people are making so many ignorant comments about racism because people need to realize that the Girl got it...it's not about racism because she is a really good singer and people need to realize that!!

THIS SEASON OF AMERICAN IDOL

THIS SEASON OF AMERICAN IDOL INDEED WAS TOUGH BECAUSE IT WAS TALENT EVERYWHERE. HOWEVER, THERE COULD ONLY BE ONE WINNER AND FANTASIA WAS THE CHOSEN ONE. SHE IS BEAUTIFUL WITH AN AMAZING TALENT AND A AWESOME PERSONALITY. PEOPLE NEED TO STOP HATING ON HER BUT REGARDLESS OF IF THEY DO OR NOT, SHE'LL STILL MAKE IT AND BE SUCCESSFUL. THE COLOR OF A PERSON'S SKIN DOESN'T ADD OR TAKE AWAY FROM THEIR TALENT. WHAT WILL IT TAKE FOR THESE IGNORANT PEOPLE TO REALIZE THAT? TO FANTASIA, IT WAS GOD'S WILL FOR YOU TO WIN AND YOU DESERVED IT. I WISH YOU NOTHING BUT THE BEST AND I PRAY THAT GOD CONTINUES TO SHOWER YOU WITH HIS MANY BLESSINGS. I CAN'T SPEAK FOR THE REST OF AMERICA BUT I WILL INDEED BUY EACH AND EVERY CD YOU PUT OUT. AND TO YA'LL HATERS, GET OFF HER PANTY LINE AND GET A LIFE. YOU ONLY HATE WHAT YOU CAN'T REPLACE AND THAT IS MS. BARRINO!

Someone pointed me to this

Someone pointed me to this blog entry about my American Idol article and I just wanted to point out I never said it was impossible that she would win. Although I think she was clearly the best, I think she got lucky. For one, the judges made extremely biased comments in her favor, even when she didn't do very well. Secondly, I think she would've lost to London if Simon hadn't made Jasmine cry, thus giving her the sympathy vote to go on to the top 3.

THIS GIRL HAS IT

THIS GIRL HAS IT ALL!!!!!.
DON'T HATE HER, WHITE AMERICA, HER TALENT IS A NATUUUUURAL.!. SHE DESERVED TO WIN! THE REDNECKS DON'T REALIZE THEY ARE PULLING DOWN ONE OF THEIR OWN. HER LAST NAME IS BARRINO, IT IS ITALIAN, SO SHE HAS SOME WHITE BLOOD IN HER, BUT HER TALENT COMES FROM HER AFRICAN AMERICAN ANCESTORS WHO HAD TO USE THEIR VOICES TO CALM THE DAILY AGONY OF BEING SLAVES OF THE WHITE MAN IN THE HOT COTTON FIELDS OF THE SOUTH. AMERICA, STOP THIS PREDJUDICE AGAINST ANOTHER RACE! THIS IS WHY WE ARE IN A WAR FIGHTING AGAINST TERRORISTS BECAUSE WE CONTINUE TO HATE OTHERS WHO ARE DIFFERENT THAT WE ARE, EVEN THOSE OF OUR OWN NATIONALITY!. SHAME! SHAME! SHAME ON WHITE AMERICA FOR THIS HATRED!
FANTASIA WAS THE BETTER SINGER, SHE HAS TALENT THAT COMES EFFORTLESSLY, SHE IS CHARASMATIC, SOULFUL, STRONG STAGE PRESENCE AND THAT CANNOT BE TAKEN AWAY! PERIOD. FANTASIA ROCKS!!!!!!!!.

I am completely floored with

I am completely floored with the responses that read posted on here. What happened to the day when we celebrated another persons victory? I'm so ashamed of the negative comments listed regarding Fantasia. Either black or white, if you payed any attention to the show you had to recongnize that Fantasia was the most consistent of any of the top 12. And her courage to explore and take on challenges through out the competition was absolutely remarkable. As I believe that Diana is a talented young lady, she had absolutely zero chance against Fantasia. I think Diana was good at getting the 'big note' and holding it. Thats just about the extent of it. Each week I could remember where her song ended but couldn't reflect on anything else in her song. It seemed bland and easily forgetable. As I salute Diana's accomplishment I absolutely refuse to minimize Fantasia's perfomances to appease Diana's sub professional perfomances. Sorry guys, Diana just didn't deliver. I believe Diana shouldn't have ever been paired with Fantasia. It was like watching and adult beat up on a child. For those who dissagree I would direct you to review the perfomances for the season. You'll be forced to agree. Good job Diana and Fantasia you are the ABSOLUTE BEST. Can't wait for you waxed talents to become available. I'm standing in line for you.

Ignorant, my foot! I've

Ignorant, my foot! I've been a fan of soul for years and I'm a white pale blonde with green eyes whose family hails from Ireland. But then again, the manager of the Irish band The Commitments did say, in the movie of the same name, that the Irish are the blacks of Europe. What he meant was that the blacks don't hold the monopoly on suffering - we've all suffered - anybody living in the 21st century is experiencing suffering whether they admit it or not. I voted for Fantasia each and every week for one reason only - she was simply the best singer - in a class far beyond anybody else in the competition, and her singing made me happy. Pure and simple. Race had nothing to do with it.
