Chris Sligh put up a new blog post today. He’s going to be erasing any mention of Idol from his promo materials for his upcoming album and tour, and in light of that, he plans to quit blogging and tweeting about Idol altogeher:
With all of this in mind, it seems a bit hypocritical to be tweeting about Idol and Idols as much as I do. So, as of today, I am making a conscious decision to delete Idol from my publishing life as well. I will not be commenting on Idol any longer. I think that this is the season to stop: it’s so horrible that I can’t imagine that I will have ANYTHING to say but negative…and I am simply trying to control how much negative I have a part in. Well, I may throw a comment in every now and then…but not en force like it has been in the past.
So, Idol is a double-edged sword…but it won’t be with me any more. I’ll end with this:
American Idol, thanks for the joy you’ve given me for the last 3 years, both in my career and seeing how other’s succeed. But I’ve got to let you go now. Time to move on! Good luck to you in the future…you are loved.

Ha ha. It’s hard to imagine Chris Sligh keeping his opinions to himself. So, all I can say is good luck with that. (And with the upcoming album and tour…)
