I too was surprised and disappointed by the results of last week's shows, but I was even more surprised by Ryan and the judges reactions. Ryan said, "Remember America, it is not a popularity contest..." Yes it is! Although I don't think Jasmine, John, or Diana are any where near as good as the others, I'm not going to buy their music, whomever they are. Those teeny boppers voting for hours after the show are the ones who will run out and buy the CD the day it is released. So, the question is, where do the big dollars come from: commercials during the show, or sales of the winner's CDs?
