Melinda Doolittle has been touted as one of the American Idols top favorites for most of the season. The Nashville native was a former back-up singer that is a technically sound singer. Her notes and pitch are always seamlessly perfect.
Why Melinda won’t win.
Melinda lacks confidence. In all her comments she acts extremely humble. This humility at times seems forced and even fake. She doesn’t have the shining star personality. There is no “Diva Effect” for Melinda.
Almost all of the songs Melinda Doolittle sings are technically solid. They do however lack passion. American Idol Simon Cowell even hinted toward this in recent comments. Melinda doesn’t sing from the heart. Everything is about getting each note and pitch correct rather than exuding passion about the song.
Looks - Sex appeal
Melinda Doolittle doesn’t have the star quality looks. Some have even made the derogatory comments and nicknamed her “Shrek”. Not all recording artists have the look, but for a commercially produced and packaged deal like American Idol, looks are important.
The American Idol Producers after Season 6 are looking for someone and something fresh. Both Jordin Sparks and Blake Lewis fit the bill. Young, talented, good looking, fresh and contemporary. Melinda is the standard old school fit. Idol producers want New and Fresh.
Melinda Doolittle is a talented Artist. She will have a successful singing career. She is likable, but the odds are stacked against her to be the Next American Idol.
American Idol is not about the best Singer, It is about the most commercially profitable singer that will sell the most CD’s and brings the most Fans to concerts.
Who goes to concerts the most? Buys the most Cd’s?
The teen and college age individuals.Â They will support someone closer to there own age, mentality, lifestyle andÂ musical interest. This is not unfortunately the best singer in the competition.Â Hence, Melinda Will not win American Idol.
