Matt Giraud, one of the top five competitors on the American Idol television show, admitted in an interview with MTV that he never really wanted to be the American Idol.
Instead, he said that his goal was just to play music on the stage. Piano and jazz were two of Girauds’ specialties, and he did a fine job with every one of his performances.
In the interview, Giraud also said he was pleased with the way he went out. While Simon Cowell was highly complimentary of his performance, other judges on the panel did not enjoy his performance very much, which surprised him.
Can anyone really blame Matt Giraud? Time and time again, we have found that just because one doesn’t win American Idol does not mean that all hope is lost. Giraud has the moxie and the stage presence to be successful in the music industry.
Giraud was also the “save” of the season. Since the judges elected to go with a top 13 to begin the season, they allocated one week to save a contestant they felt should have had another chance to prove America wrong with their vote.
Do you think Matt should have been kicked off American Idol?
