Simon Cowell 'couldn't stand' Taylor Hicks
Simon added, "at the end of the day you have to find a bona fide recording artist. Just because you win the show doesn't mean you will sell a lot of records. Chris (Daughtry) is the one who sold the albums, not Taylor." Hicks still hasn't sold one million albums, and many critics doubt he will.
I have this message for Simon: "Get over it." You're still just mad that America had the audacity to vote for Taylor no matter how hard you tried to sway their votes with your harsh criticism. Accept the fact that the people have spoken. Isn't that the "American Idol Way?"
Besides, Idol is really more of a Reality TV show than a "singing competition." If you truly want to find the best recording artist, you might want to rethink the voting process, and let industry professionals (rather than the public) decide. If not, stop complaining about America's choice.
