If the other networks were smart, they’d get Ken Levine to counter-program American Idol. Why? Read:

Six months from now it all begins again…Kids who in a few weeks will be asked to perform live for thirty million people can’t remember the words to “Rockefeller Skank” when singing for three.

Levine picks his highlights of the season.

LaKisha singing “You’re Going to Love Me”, Sanjaya getting hair tips from Diana Ross, Antonella’s internet pictures (if only the winner was determined by downloads not votes), J-Lo giving singing advice, Haley’s legs, shots of Jordin’s father playing in the NFL alongside Fantasia, $70 million raised for charity, everything about Chris Sligh but his singing, the shot of me in the audience,

And Tabloid Baby finds something very pre-destined about Jordin’s win.
