The “American Idol” top 24 have been announced, and along with the expected ringers there are quite a few surprise omissions: Chris Medina, John Wayne Schulz, Jerome Bell, Carson Higgins, and Jacee Badeaux, to name but five. I’m sure they’re feeling pretty rejected, and dejected, right now, as they watch their peers move on to the live “Idol” stage while they pack their bags and Greyhound-bus it back to the small towns from whence they came.
SULK: # be in a huff and display one’s displeasure; “She is pouting because she didn’t get what she wanted”
a state of sulking; to express ill humor or offense by remaining sullenly silent or withdrawn
# a mood or display of sullen aloofness or withdrawal; “stayed home in a sulk
But they shouldn’t sulk. They should realize that quite a few talented singers were turned away by “Idol,” but went on to bigger and better things.
