With Siobhan Magnus’s departure on American Idol last night, it meant the folks at “Vote for the Worst” had to quickly brainstorm for a new contender to champion as their choice for the worst of the still remaining Idol contestants. Apparently Big Mike’s faux bravado, chest pumping antics, irritable arrogance and supersized Velveeta cheesiness was just the recipe they were looking for. While I would’ve suggested teen elf Aaron or boring hair model Casey, VFTW took their own path ignoring the fact that Mike, while obnoxious, can sang! Oh well. We’ll see if it has an impact because after choosing to promote Siobhan just last week, she’s already going home. I bet the folks at VFTW are wondering where a Taylor Hicks is when you need one.

And here’s a dubious performance of Big Mike’s for your, um, enjoyment.
