SNOOKI is a MAN    

The New Season of American Idol is GARBAGE! ITs not even the same show anymore! This poor guy got snubbed. Just look at his youtube videos.here>>http://www.youtube.com/user/BaddBoyBlanco<<.. He is amazing. He has the musical ear that not many people possess. You can see the passion in his work. And he composes his music like kanye or something! IT truly is incredible! American Idol is just looking for ratings. BOOOOO! Snooki is a MAN!

Boy Scouts of America is proprietary of their logo, uniform or any part of their organization being used for gain or profit, especially for advertising or entertaining purposes.

Idol could have a problem on their hands.

On the other side, this kid is a great example of the few good ones out there. Call him a geek or a nerd if you want but I'll bet a ton of money his family values and "doing the right thing" outrank 90% of the kids his age in the country. Chances are he's not preoccupied with ipod earbuds stuck in his head or strapped to a Nintendo DS. He hasn't knocked up the first girl he ever slept with, done drugs or even swears. I'll also bet he doesn't give those blank, see-right-thru-you stares kids are famous for when asked a question, like you've insulted them or something. I'm not saying he's perfect but probably light years ahead on manners and everything else kids lack today. Yea for the Scouts! You have created another one.

Does anyone else think he looks like Ernie on My Three Sons? You younger ones will have to Google that, but really, he looks just like him!

Congratulations Christopher! Becoming an Eagle Scout is a huge accomplishment that not everyone can achieve. Those who are mocking you probably couldn't make it to tenderfoot.
