I quit watching when they sent Ben home. From his first performance I had him picked as the winner. He can sing and he performed like a pro. Don’t give up Ben!

Ben was a front runner in my opinion from the moment I saw him perform. He had both the experience and capability to be a finalist, and his little acting bits on the show showed potential as well. I have been watching Idol every season and this is not my first disappointment. Will this hurt his career? I doubt it.

Being anywhere in the top 20 of an entire country of 100’s of thousands of potential contestants speaks volumns for his talent. Go Ben. Bring it home. A lot of exposure comes with this opportunity. Those in the business who know talent will recognize his potential. We will be seeing more of Ben, for sure. Others in the top group of finalists will be far less recognized over time. I could probably name a few winners who have become successful nobodies as well…. if I could just remember their names.

The truth is the show is an entertaining watch, but the voting system is anything but reliable. If a career is made depending upon who happens to be watching television that night, I would be surprised. Idol is losing some of its appeal for me.

Caleb should win this year. He is the standout talent by a country mile…but will he…that’s the big question.

I and five of my friends watch Idol and chat during the show. We all love Ben. The difference between me and my friends is, while we all think there are other good contestants, my friends will not be watching. America got it wrong, and so did the judges. Majesty Rose is a sweet girl, but she was awful the last two weeks and should have gone home. Idol is going to lose a lot more than five viewers for the judges’ decision to not save Ben. I wish they’d talk it over and reverse their decision and surprise me next week. And, Ben? Keep singing—I’ll buy your songs!

I was very disappointed that Ben went home. I think he has so much more to offer than some of the other contestants.
