American Idol doesn’t care about singers; it cares about ratings. Quota for pointing out the obvious reached for today. So, it should surprise just about no one that a show that purports to be a singing competition would enlist a non-singer of the non-singer-est ilk in that of one Kanye West. West is certainly a performer, and American Idol’s producers – if questioned – might try to skate by with a paper-thin excuse that the singers in its competition need to be able to entertain as well, ergo, endorsing a performance by a shitty singer. West is such an awful singer that he actually touts the benefits of Auto-Tune as a means of artistic expression. Hilarious. West is one of the most spoiled, self-obsessed, and deluded celebrities out there. He’s had a hand in some memorable songs, granted, and the guy knows how to put on a show, but having to sit through his singing is beyond painful. Can’t wait to see the judges faces during that one.
