  1. I hate that they constantly have to bring up the fact that she’s had the lowest debut of all the Idols. :(

  2. Yeah, it does get a little tiresome that everyone is commenting on Jordin’s plight. All the “Idols” are cannon fodder for the media and they love to state the obvious over and over again. They were pretty hard on the Season 5 folks so she will be lucky to get off this lightly. If Blake or any one of the rest of season 6 has a smash hit CD she will hear much harsher criticism than that. Just ask Taylor Hicks.

  3. Whoooo hoooo!! Rock on Bo! Um, I didnt see Mr. Hicks’ name there. He must be appearing SOMEWHERE. He better get his ass into the recording studio dammit. Nevermind Santa, he’s gonna give him a piece of coal if he doesnt step up his game. Im tired of being the laughing stock of my block.

    Good thing I love Bucky cause every time I turn on the country music channel one of his vids is playing. Lookin’ good Buckster!

    Im bored with Jordin.

  4. No kidding-everyone loves to hate yet just because they don’t have something better to talk about. Jordin Rules! She has seriously made it and has been so classy along the way. Some of my friends have been hating too but recently I got this idol karaoke machine and it put a couple people, who will remain nameless, in their place! You sing idols’ songs and then your friends vote. A halarious trick to play on the debbie downers! The truth is that Jordin has an incredible range and voice.
