"I never came into [American Idol] wanting to win it,'' Chris Sligh, the curly topped, chubby contestant who was voted off this week, told The Greenville News. "I made the Top Ten. That was my goal.''
Slight Sligh was even considering quitting, he says, but wanted to make the Top 10 so he could go on tour this summer with the other idols and collect a paycheck. "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.''
He oughta hold off on quitting that job. Sligh's lack of star quality will keep him at a desk job. Not even trying to win reflects a bad attitude. Sligh's Christian fundamentalist college, Bob Jones University, also booted him out for the unholy sin of attending a contemporary Christian concert featuring the group 4Him.
