I have yet to get a vote in during an American Idol finale. Season 2, of course, was the worst, but tonight, I haven't been able to vote either. I don't recall how many finales I bothered to vote in. Usually I don't bother because I know it will just be a busy signal. I have to either like someone enough (see Clay, Cook) or really, really, really dislike one of the contestants (see Fantasia, Taylor).
Of course, I'm voting without watching the show. Which I'm watching now. I love Andrew Lloyd Webber. And I have a ton to say about my troubled, troubled DVR. Sigh.
