The Fix Is In

Syesha Mercado, “Hit Me Up”: 14
Ladies and gentlemen, the fix is in. Why would the producers give a contestant trying to get in the finals a song with very little actual singing in it (and all the singing that is in it done by the backup singers)? Could it be because they don’t want that contestant to succeed? I think she did everything she could with the song, but you could tell she wasn’t really happy with the choice.

And haven’t they used that song in “So You Think You Can Dance” promos? Come on, Nigel. You can do better than that…
