'Idol'ing or stalled?

Taylor Hicks, Ruben Studdard and Katharine McPhee, once proud "American Idol" icons, have all been dropped by their labels. Maybe you've already heard that, though, from MTV or from the Ledger's own 'Idol' blogger, Double S.

Could it be that America is finally saying 'no' to being force-fed its stars? Could it be that we're ready for our stars to earn their fame through talent and songwriting (you know, old school) instead of a manufactured popularity contest.

God, I hope so.

While we're not exactlly saying humans have good judgment, we will say what Staffer Mom often says: You just have to trust that eventually people will come to their senses.
In the case of "Idol", we hope this to be true.
