Yep, I am. I cried when Scott MacIntyre was voted off American Idol last night. I knew the judges wouldn't save him. I'm so sad he was voted off. He's such an amazing musician. I was blown away each week when he learned a new song on the piano--maybe because it'd take me months to learn a song. I really liked his voice, too.
The judges are so hypocritical. They are always advising the contestants to take a risk, go out of their comfort zone, do something new. Yet, when Scott did exactly that, they all criticized him for it. Makes you wonder if the judges even know what they want to see from contestants.
I think he did a great job. I'm so impressed that he didn't let his visual impairment slow him down. He owns that impairment, it doesn't own him. He's showed America that no matter what your dream is, you can go for it despite obstacles that stand in your way.
I know the show is about the best singer, but I think Scott showed us another side of a true American Idol--one that doesn't let anything prevent him from pursuing his dream.
I will miss him and his personality and wish him the very best in all he chooses to do because I'm sure there's no stopping him.
