Dear Blake Lewis,
I’m sorry that you lost. Really it must have been tough to lose in front of so many people. However, before you start doing your post-idol press, please note that you are not allowed to say the following: “I’m really glad that Jordin won, because now I can put out the record I want to.” This is a giant pet peeve of mine. You can’t bash what kind of music Idol produces and try out for the show. It’s not allowed. You can be secretly grateful, but keep your mouth shut.
ps. congrats Jordin. Please join the ranks of Rubin, Fantasia and Taylor.
