Well that's what I've been saying since the getgo, they don't NEED to be versatile in the real world. Just do one thing great.

But it was fun when they used to hit the wall of an unfriendly genre. Some real blowups for sure. Now it's just a bunch of slick Glee lounge performers--the kind you see late at night in the mini-lounges around Vegas casinos. Robot pros doing slick cover songs hour after tedious hour with all the right moves and expressions.

Idol has really lost its pose of "amateurism" this year. They used to hide the fact that, say, Katherine McPhee had a record contract and was living with a married record producer twice her age.

Now I suppose the whole thing is a bit more honest. Many of these performers are highly trained pros and semi-pros. Not diamonds in the rough who fell off a turnip truck.
