This Week's American Idol Shows Why We Miss Asia'H

This week's edition of American Idol again illustrated well the reason why the judges might be right that this could be the season with the most talent, but it also shows why it could also be the most boring ever yet. When Asia'H Epperson was still around on the show, the bright and bubbly personality of the young part time waitress was enjoyable and certainly lovable, compared and in stark contrast to the almost boring personas from the other contestants. While David Cook certainly riled some with his perceived arrogance which could really be confidence, and Danny Noriega was quite the diva, the rest were so plain it bordered on supreme boredom. Kristy Lee Cook was great eye candy, but so dull and square that she made Asia'H look like a riot in comparison.

Ramiele Malubay was one dimensional in her trying so hard to be cute image, and Brooke White while talented and very very likable, was too... nice. Michael Johns was just so awkward that he often looked like a deer in the headlights. Basically the rest of the contestants were boring and hardly added any spark to the show.

While Asia'H Epperson was certainly not the most interesting contestant ever to appear on American Idol, her antics and bright smile, not to mention heart breaking story which was repeated in every video, was a welcome relief to anything the other contestants could put on stage. There were many fans who looked forward to her appearance each week on stage, and with recent news that she might just reappear again on American Idol in April, it was fantastic news for each and every Asia'H fan.

Christopher Hedges mentioned his list of top 5 personal favourites on American Idol to win the competition earlier earlier on but even he said that Asia'H is a great choice but unfortunately the fates have determined that the girl did not perform to expectations and was unluckily eliminated from the competition. One hopes that she will one day fulfill her potential and return with a big bang.

It would be nice to see Asia'h Epperson come back for a guest appearance on American Idol. To all of the AI execs reading this blog, make it happen and you'll have a lot of happy fans.
