…what you say and do defines who you are as a person. I think people should have a very good idea of who I am. (Lee DeWyze,THR)

My favorite TWEET of the day (Lee DeWyze)

My favorite Tweet of the Day also brings to mind my favorite Shakespearean Play “Much Ado About Nothing.

In the play that was later made into a movie in 1993 the plot was about two pairs of lovers with the emphasis being on “noting”

"The plot of Much Ado About Nothing centers on a lot of hubbub over little misunderstandings; there’s a whole lot of fuss about stuff that ultimately isn’t that important.

For the bigger issues in the play, though, we turn to the fact that, in Shakespeare’s day, “nothing” was often pronounced the same way as “noting.” The play is built around the process of “noting,” which has myriad meanings. It can mean “to take notice of” something, to eavesdrop, to observe, or to write something down – but these notings aren’t necessarily accurate. A person can misunderstand a meaning, or mishear, or misreport something, in the process of noting too.” ~from schmoop.com. 

I think what has transpired this week with the American Idol Finale has had the “first blush” of utter disrespect and lack of appreciation but in the end may simply be a “noting” that has resulted in “Much Ado About Nothing” I was glad Lee tweeted his “side of the story” today and I agreed with everything he said.

I also think Lee DeWyze is trying to clear up how he viewed what happened by his tweet today and tell you that though he was not asked to be a part of Idol Finale, he would have enjoyed it very much but he did not feel jumping in at the last moment was appropriate, or even fair to Scotty McCreery in his moment.  Again, I tend to agree.

That said maybe it’s time to say “Thank you” to American Idol for the “start” it has given Lee and to move our focus as fans on to more important things in the near future such as TOUR!!!!!!!

We can not change what has happened and as fans all we can do is decide where we go from here. It is up to you as an individual and a viewer to decide if American Idol is the show you want to fill your evenings watching. No one will force you to turn on FOX or to vote. You control that. If you truly are tired of their voting methods and glitzy over produced Finale’s then just don’t watch it. It’s that simple and losing viewers will mean more to American Idol producers than nasty tweets and comments ever could. There are other good shows to watch and more coming on air all the time. By fall you will have not only American Idol and The Voice but you will have Simon Cowells, XFactor. 

On a personal note I have never been a huge fan of the show American Idol. I have been a fan of some of their contestants but I have philosophical differences with the way they conduct the voting and for me American Idol has become so “POP-PY” that it is almost an obstacle for artist who use that platform as a means to get ahead. I have read over and over where artist after being on American Idol have said they had the hurdle of proving themselves within the music industry because American Idol was so non respected for serious musicians. It may be better but that truly has never changed. The bottom line for me is that I am truly a fan of  good music (all venues) and great artist….not television shows. 

It is very obvious to me that American Idol Season 9 is the current Idol executives “throw away” season. It was Simon Cowell’s last year, it has changed it’s platform and has a new producer and all but one of the judges has left. They really have not done much to promote Lee DeWyze nor Crystal Bowersox and my “back yard” opinion is that they really just don’t care. The NEW American Idol began with Season 10. 

They will tell you that their ratings went up over-all but I wonder if they noticed that when Lee fans boycotted their show on Tuesday night this week the ratings went down and in fact “Dancing with the Stars” beat them out for the number one position for the first time in Idol history. When Lee DeWye tweeted to fans he would be attending the Finale on Wednesday night the ratings went back up. I believe that coupled with the fact that the American Idol Finale had super stars such as Lady Gaga and Beyonce on stage was what made the difference and can you really compare last nights entertainment to last years? I think not.

So it is, what it is and at the end of the day it’s really up to you the viewer and its unfortunate but honestly I believe it is “Much Ado about Nothing”…there are just more important things for us to worry about.
