American Idolatry

I’m still NR cruising (there were two cruises to Portugal and Spain, Jay was on the first — read about it here — and I’m on the second), so I can only keep up with so much of what is going on back home. And so, naturally, one of the things I’ve kept up with is…American Idol.

Please tell me that I am missing something about this Ellen DeGeneres–Crystal Bowersox controversy, because it reads like someone looking to manufacture outrage. I find it more shocking that “Hallelujah” (have you heard the words to that song? ) would be sung on a primetime show that lots of families watch than that Crystal would be asked to sing a Paul McCartney song.
