Blake Lewis and Jordin Sparks, the two American Idol 6 finalists, are playing the I Don’t Care if I Lose card before the season finale starts.
First, Blake told reporters, according to the AP, “I don’t think I’ve really ever listened to the judges I think on this show. I kinda nod my head and smile and say thank you.”
He also tells MTV News, “I’ve never looked at it as a competition. … I won when I got into the top 10. I’ve already reached my goal, so regardless of win or lose, I think I’m a winner on this show already.” He also told reporters that he thinks Jordin “already won it in my mind and she was my pick in the beginning.”
Jordin would be fine with that, as she said during that press conference, “It’s what I’ve been wanting to do for so long, and I think that if people did vote for me, that I could represent it well if I actually won. It would be amazing. I would love to win. … I don’t know: just vote for me if you like me!”
But Jordin later told MTV News that she’d be okay with losing. “I came into this competition, and I really do want to win, I do, but at the same time, if I don’t, it’s not gonna be the end of the world. It’s not going to be, ‘Oh my gosh, I’m never gonna sing again’ kind of thing. I would be happy if I won, and I would be happy if Blake won. I’m just glad that I got a chance to be a part of it,” she said.
And that is why season six is so boring. Where’s a little Toni Ferrari “Yahtzee! Game on!” when we need it?
