Re: “Can Elise Testone emerge from American Idol with grace?

Elise was the only contestant I liked. Also, I'm pretty sure the only past contestants who have gone on to do their "own thing" are Carrie Underwood & Jennifer Hudson (who have both become wildly successful). However, folks who took the Idol bait like Taylor Hicks & Fantasia have done next-to-nothing with their careers. You were talking about the "indentured servant with a glittery gown and a headset microphone" and I'm pretty sure the only past contestants who fall into this category are Kelly Clarkson & Kellie Pickler... but I don't really think they are as extreme as what you describe there. In the end, it's up to the person to work hard and build their career. I have every belief that Elise has the strength and ability to conquer, but she might decide that she prefers life out of the spotlight.

I believe that whatever we see of her in the future will be completely up to her in the end, and we should just respect that without getting so up-in-arms that we write silly articles bashing American Idol (which is actually just a glamorized Star Search). Save the cynicism for when you have a name for yourself like Howard Stern and have a following who agrees with & respects you.

Frankly, I can't understand how you get paid; but you do have potential. Your ability to speak your thoughts clearly and allow your words to flow are perfect ingredients for a great writer. Perhaps you just need a little discipline. You obviously have great energy outside of writing because you were given an opportunity that superior writers with less luck will never see.

And - as a sidenote - I, too, hate pop factories like American Idol. I just think this article could've held a better tone.
