David Archuleta ~ American Idol Ending It’s Run
Posted by bebereader on Monday, May 11, 2015
I wasn’t surprised when I read the news this morning that “American Idol” was ending it’s run after it’s fifteenth season, next year. Just a little melancholy because it signifies the end of an era and where I was first introduced to David Archuleta.
I know that there are people who still watch, even David fans. But I haven’t watched the show since Season 7 except in bits and pieces. I lost my faith in the show’s premise, to find the best singer. I mean, come on. Really??
The show declined in ratings after Simon left and I understand why. He’s as sharp as a tack at what he does and provided a lot of zingers and “did he really say that?” moments. But, in my opinion, there’s no excuse for degrading and belittling contestants for the sake of entertainment. It got old.
Apparently they are planning a big hurrah for the last season. I will watch but only to see glimpses of David.
