The fans have voted in massive numbers, fifteen million or so, and Kelly Clarkson is the first annointed "American Idol." Plans are for her to release her first single by Sept 12, a song that she tearfully sang at the end of last night's finale. Problem is, in my estimation, the song is totally lame. Poor Kelly is being saddled with a mundane, sugar pop ballad with no discernable hook or any memorable quality or meaningful lyrics. That she made the song tolerable at all is a tribute to her talent, but can even she make this forgettable song a hit? I suppose if just one tenth of the folks who voted for her, buy the CD, she will have a bona fide hit, but why would they buy it? I want to hear her sing songs that are worthy of her rich and expressive voice. She is being wasted on this unremarkable song. Maybe...just maybe... this song will get airplay on VH-1, but I can't imagine it would be well received on MTV, unless some genius can create a killer video and do some work to add interest to the song. What do you folks think?
