[ # ] Chris Sligh’s ego as big as his waistline
March 30th, 2007 under American Idol 6

According to The Greenville News Chris Sligh says that he wanted to quit American Idol two weeks ago, but only stayed to be part of the tour. "I never came into this wanting to win it, I made the Top Ten. That was my goal." So why did he want to quit, "When I was pretty much universally trashed for my arrangement of 'Endless Love,' I kind of thought, 'You know? This isn't really the competition for me,' Actually, I almost dropped out that week. I wanted to make the tour," So why did he say, "I wanted to be able to make music for my living, so I don't have to work at the marketing company that I was working at. It doesn't matter who is going to place ahead of me. What matters is the fact that I reached the goal that I really wanted to make."
Sligh also feels that he did not deserve the criticism he got for doing The Police, "It wasn't a great performance, but, honestly, it was not as bad as what the judges made it seem. As soon as they gave me the spanking they did, I kind of knew that I was going home." He also feels the Judges didn't get him, "I think the judges had a hard time understanding it. It's like they didn't really understand where I was coming from. They never commented on my voice, which I think was a bit frustrating for me."
I say dump his fat a$$ from the tour.  Maybe this is why Idol is as bad as it is this year because these are not people who want to win it, these are just people who want to be household names. 
Now back to Sligh, for him to say that his style was not what the Judges liked, neither was Chris Daughtry's and look where he is. Sligh will be going back to his job at that marketing company because who would want to sign him now. He was not good and only stayed on because of his personality. I thought he was being funny with his attitude, but seems it was all attitude. I really hope they scold him for his comments in this interview and drop him from the tour. They need to give it to people who want to be there, not this guy. Bye bye Chris Sligh bye bye.
