The try outs are here and they are better then ever. So here is the place to talk about what you think of the singers and the judges.

American Idol sucks. However, it's better than some shows a.k.a. Joe Millionare, Batchelor, etc.

American Idol is awesome. I just watched the first show of the 3rd season just a few minutes ago. It is soo funny watching them make fun of those horrible singers that come in there and try and sing. I don't know if you guys watched it or remember the bet Simon and the fat chick made. That was soo funny. She was soo full of herself until she got a dose of reality. Of course all those people were probably payed to walk out of the bar but it was still very funny. Great show.

Ok. I'm talking about the try outs. This is the only part I watch because of some of the singers. This is the only part you need to watch.

Exactly. It's the insults and the horrible, cocky singers who jump in there. When everyone starts to get really serious then it becomes stupid.

I think i'll just watch the tryouts this season. The only reason i watched last year was cause of Clay. Unless someone else fron NC makes it to the show i might not watch.

I watched it last night and thought it was hysterical. I can't believe some of these people actually think they can sing.

The best part for me was when the one girl said she had God by her side, and Simon said he must have taken today off. The look on that poor girl's face was priceless.

I caught a few minutes of AI, while waiting for "My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiance" to start. I thought the girl with the scooter wasn't very good. Overall, I wasn't impressed with AI and won't go out of my way to watch it again.

"My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiance" was pretty funny, though. I will try to keep up with that show.

It's best in the beginning of the season, when there's so many horrible contestants. After that, it gets real boring with the same kind of 1.5 minute songs every week and *gasp* another contestant voted off.

I agree. Not too much fun. Thanks god for Tivo. So easy to condence an hour show to 20 mins.

This show is poor and all of the other pop idol (british show), lame accademy (fame), and others similar suck and just get on my nerves. There on TV all the time and should of died out by now. We here in england are on our 4th/5th installment of flop idol (as i call it). At least i have the Alien Quadrilogy (9 disks) to keep me happy. Just wish one of the aliens would eat all the sad people on it.

Well I personally love the show. It's just funny to watch these people that think they can sing.

The "scat girl" last night was terrible, but I did feel sorry for her.

Most of those people must have some really lieing families or something. I would tell them to not even try out.

I just don't understand how they think they can sing.

The red headed guy that sang one of the 40's songs (can't remember which one), was one of the best last night. And scooter girl was good too.

I'm a singer, so I appreciate the good singers more than the GP probably. I usually agree 98% of the time with Simon. He may be rude some times, but he knows his stuff.

Coastr Crazy 72

I completely agree BGW. Although I don't feel bad for the people like "scat girl." They should know exactly what to expect and should have done a reality check for themselves before letting people like Simon do it for them. But then again if they did a reality check for themselves, then half the people that were waiting for days would probably end up leaving before try-outs.

I also felt sorry for Scat Girl. I have heard her on the radio from the American Idol advertisements and on the TV. I am sure that if she realized that this was going to happen, then she would of never done it. In her eyes maybe she thinks that she is good. She said that she tried her best. I feel sorry for her. I would sue American Idol for that!

Its all a scam and the winners only ever have one song that makes it big then they just disapear of the face of the earth, look at the winners from the british version and I cant even remeber what they look like yet alone who they are or what they sing. It need to end and something more original needs to take its place.

The only part of the show that is worth watching is all the crappy singers. Other than that, I could care less about this show or anything else in the realm of pop.

All contestants sign a waver that says they can use any footage of them on the show even if they are humiliated. Thats how all reality shows work. I saw a VH1 special about them and thats what they said.

You're actually wrong. Will Young had a number one just before Christmas - there's also Gareth Gates, Girls Aloud, Liberty X etc. still churning out music which is high in the charts. Personally, I hate these singing contest shows - to watch a load of talentless wannabes is almostgiving them what they want, their 5 minutes of fame.

Exactly. They should know what they're getting into before they walk in. I was just saying that that one person seemed like a nice (although a bit naive) person, and she seemed a little upset.

Most of the people I don't feel a bit bad for, because they come in with attitude to spare, and act like "Look out! It's the next Whitney Houston! Look out for me! Sign me right now! I'm so awesome!"

Then they act shocked when they're told they're bad :rolleyes:

I only watch the beginning, then the finals. And I only watch it at all because of Simon, if nothing else he's honest.

As far as it being a scam, I don't think so. That Clay guy (I think that's his name), has a couple of music videos out, my youngest daughter has them on tape. So, if it's really a scam, how do you get music videos on MTV or that VH whatever channel?

Magnum Robert
01-20-2004, 10:32 PM
^ MTV and VH1 will play whatever is hot for the moment. Check out some of the comments on the "MTV sucks" thread. Clay and the others will be long forgotten in the near future.

I actually watched more AI today and was slightly amused by the horrible singers. The guy who came onto Paula Abdul made me sick, though. I will watch Simon get water thrown on him in tomorrow's show.

Wes
01-21-2004, 07:50 AM
Again we had stupid people that thought they were sooooooooo good, and stunk. The girl that got so pissed and said they made the biggest mistake in the world is crazy. She's never going to get work as a singer. She wasn't the worst, but she was close.

Plus, if you actually have talent, then don't go postal on national TV. No one would hire you, because you acted like a idiot.

Diesel
01-21-2004, 08:32 AM
The tryout shows are phony. Those people have already passed through an initial try-out before they get to Simon and Co. They don't just let anybody walk in off the street and meet those three. So how do these people make it past the pre-Simon judges? Bad singers + Simon = Comedy = Ratings. Some might even be up and coming actors that got their first gig pretending to be singers. It's all a ruse.

With that said, the first show is still entertaining.

coasetrphil
01-21-2004, 05:34 PM
Yeah, my dad and I were trying to tell my sisters that last night. Its still funny though.

Wes
01-23-2004, 08:09 AM
What I don't understand is how they can let THAT many bad ones through the initial screening. I know they want it to be funny, but come on.

Houston ended up with only 13 or so going through. That's horrible! Out of 80,000 people, only 13. That's a little weird. But then again, some of those people just came out to be on TV. I know a lot of peope just want their "15 minutes of fame".

Carowinds 73-03
01-23-2004, 02:32 PM
I still think the really bad singers are put there by the producers for comic relief. It's just to get you to watch. There is no way any of these people would make it that far to go before Simon,Paula & Randy.

Wes
01-23-2004, 10:24 PM
You're probably right. They are assimilating us, plain and simple. lol ;)

Carowinds 73-03
01-28-2004, 07:20 PM
I'am 100% sure some of these singers are fixed into the show. After what i saw last night there is no way about 10 of those people could have made it past the first round in there home city and go before the AI judges, unless there holding audititions where you go before Simon and others and skip a first round thing. I wish they would clear up how the show works a bit.

Coastr Crazy 72
01-28-2004, 07:23 PM
I think that the original screening process is just to make sure these people have good attitudes and aren't just going in there to kill Simon and them. I don't think they are letting these people go in based on their vocal talents, they are probably just making sure they are safe and to just get info on them, make sure they don't have a criminal record or something. Yea they have bouncers to do that job if someone gets out of control but they should only bounce people if necessary and if they can avoid it then great.

Carowinds 73-03
01-28-2004, 07:27 PM
I diden't even think of that. Did you see that one guy last night if anyone watched who had to be escorted out bu police/security. Man people take this way to seriously. Tons & tons of crying.

Coastr Crazy 72
01-28-2004, 07:32 PM
Well if you were up ni the clouds like these people are and are trying to chase a dream and then get shot down by a couple of celebrities, how would you feel. I don't understand how they can possibly think they are good singers or why they try out but I understand why they cry.

Some people just loose it and have to be escorted, like that one kid who threw the glass of water at Simon.

Here is an example to back my theory, one episode last week there was this black kid who was the first one to audition but he showed no enthusiasm or care to be there. Those are another type of people they probably don't want in there to try out because that would be wasting Simon, Paula and the other guy's time or whatever.

coasetrphil
01-29-2004, 05:12 PM
They put the bad people in there for ratings, there is no other reason. It also gives them a false sense of confidence, therefore increasing their disbelief when they go in front of the real panel and are told they suck.

Magnum Robert
01-29-2004, 07:49 PM
Those who are terrible singers are just put on tv to boost ratings. I must admit that I do find entertainment value in the show. The guy who dressed up as Winnie the Pooh and sang the Christopher Robin song the other day was hysterical. I also enjoyed watching Simon get doused with water. So the show does have its moments.

coastergenius100
02-01-2004, 04:29 PM
Actually a girl in my choir talked to me about what the whole "screening process" is really about (what they don't tell you on the show). Apparently you do the initial try-outs, and there are about 10 people in each group let's say. Well the best two and the worst two will get chosen to go in front of Simon, Paula, etc. Yeah, I think that it's pretty stupid too, but apparently they get a lot of their ratings from watching those failures. And BTW, she didn't make it to the next round by one person.

Carowinds 73-03
02-01-2004, 04:32 PM
I had a friend who tried out for last years show but simon told him he wasen't ready. I wish they would have showed his auditition on TV but they diden't.

Coastr Crazy 72
02-05-2004, 12:59 AM
I doubt the voting for the finalists is fixed. I think everything after the auditions was for real. My only complain right now is why the hell did scooter girl get sent home. I honestly thought she was one of the best. Some of them don't deserve to be there but they will get voted off soon enough. Everyone else, but scooter girl, got kicked off and deserved to be kicked off.

Carowinds 73-03
02-05-2004, 01:01 AM
I was shocked as well to see her get booted but WHAT they kept the stupid model guy. He will get votef off as well.

Is it just me or are this years contestants not takeing this very serious. I think most of these people are just trying to get more than 15 min of fame.

Coastr Crazy 72
02-05-2004, 01:13 AM
I think about 75% of them are taking it seriously. Thats a good amount of people too.

Magnum Robert
02-05-2004, 05:18 PM
I didn't recognize scooter girl right away. When she sang on stage, I thought she really had a nice voice---one of the best. Only after someone (i think simon) mentioned the scooter did it click. I'm sad to see her go.

Anyone who forgot his/her lines should have gotten the boot with no 2nd thought. The 2 brothers are worthless---they both should have gone home.

I'm boycotting the rest of the show in honor of scooter girl. :p

Carowinds 73-03
02-05-2004, 05:21 PM
I'am still bitter over Frenchie from lst season. Who cares if she shoed here boobs. Look a Janet and she's still popular. I think she might have won if they diden't boot her off the show.

Coastr Crazy 72
02-05-2004, 06:22 PM
I think the only reason they are keeping the brothers is because they are good-publicity wise. I mean look at it, two brothers (I think they are twins) who can sing great and one of their names is Jesus.

Wes
02-06-2004, 07:40 AM
Actually I think Frenchie was last year.

I also couldn't believe they cut scooter girl, and kept that goofy model guy. He's not been taking it seriously at all. cut him!

Yeah I didn't get why they cut her either. She was an awesome singer. If they want perfect people, then they shouldn't be looking for singers. lol They have just as much "drama" as anyone. lol

Coastr Crazy 72
02-06-2004, 12:28 PM
I'm going to spam them with e-mails. I'm going to send about 100 emails to Fox about the cutting of Scooter Girl. I'll tell them all of my friends are now boycotting the show because they cut her. Won't do anything but I'll feel important ;) :P

Wes
02-06-2004, 12:55 PM
Yeah, they'll just send you 100 Dear John letters...Dear John Doe, Thank you for your concern for scooter girl......... lol ;)

Coastr Crazy 72
02-06-2004, 01:00 PM
lol probably but I'll just throw them into my spam folder. You see they can't do that with my emails though ;)

Carowinds 73-03
02-07-2004, 12:30 PM
You should. I'am sure you won't be the only one. I might send them an e-mail to. I remeber fox got thousands of hate mail when they cut frenchie. BGWFreak they cut her cause she had nude pics of here on the internet and diden't tell the producers about them. I guess they found them on there own or someone tiped them off.

My friend is going to audition next year. He is one of the best guys singers I have ever heard. He canhit almost any note. I have seen many of these singers and I truly believe he can make it to at least the top 32. I am not just saying this because he is my friend, he can really sing. When he appears on the show next year I will tell you guys his name.

Wes

Coastr Crazy 72
02-11-2004, 02:19 PM
I thought the best performance was the first one. I think she is 16 or something. She was the best, IMO. I think the one with the weird dress that sung the blues song was more of what people are looking for though. She looks great on camera, has a great voice and is really energetic. She looks like the next Britney Spears.

Fantasia is much more like Macy Grey. I hate Macy Grey and I hate her voice so, no vote coming from me for Fantasia.

Carowinds 73-03

Fantasia is from High Point, NC, and that's like 15 minutes from where I live, so she's got my vote all the way through.

Coastr Crazy 72
02-12-2004, 02:36 PM
Yuo see that is the problem with a lot of people who vote. The ones who actually care enough to vote are usually the ones who live nearby or have some relation in that area. They don't vote for who they think is the best. I jsut hope they rig this and give it to the one who deserves it most and not let people like us decide. If you happen to think they are the best then disregaurd my post.

twistytie
02-12-2004, 02:42 PM
That's just it, I think she is the best. I like the way she sounds, looks, and she has a very...unique attitude.

Wes
02-12-2004, 04:07 PM
Yeah I think she's a good entertainer. I don't think she'll make it to the top 5, but I could be wrong. I try to vote for two people that I think should stay in. She couldn't have been voted for just by the NC folks, she got 24% of the vote from the nation.

It will be interesting to see how far she gets.

Coastr Crazy 72
02-12-2004, 04:11 PM
I was looking at an AOL poll today about the American Idols and I noticed something. The judges are the ones who really influence the voting. Think, if they had criticized Fantasia then would she really be leading the votes? If some of the people, like that black dancer guy, had gotten better reviews from the judges then maybe they would have been on top. I am contradicting what I said before by saying that I really think that the judges have a lot to do with people's votes.

Wes
02-12-2004, 04:18 PM
I agree. I think people kind of follow what they say. Plus if they say something bad about someones performance, they're more likely to get upset and make themselves look like an idiot on tv.

coastergenius100
02-12-2004, 09:40 PM
Well, if you think about it, I think it's a good thing that peoiple are listening to the judges. Do you expect the average American to know half a thing about music. Look at popular artists like Simple Plan and 50 Cent are!! What makes an average American think that they know more about music than a professial like Simon or Paula?

Coastr Crazy 72
02-12-2004, 10:08 PM
That's true but they only sang one song and you don't really have to be an expert to know what kind of music you like. I am not voting for who I think I would be a great star, I am voting for who has the best voice. You have to be pretty dumb to not be able to tell who you think has the best voice.

coastergenius100
02-13-2004, 11:01 PM
Well.....I don't know Coastr Crazy, there's some pretty dumb people out there. But I see what you mean, in general, people do go with what they generally like. I think that this season isn't going to be as good as Clay/Rueben.

BTW has anybody noticed that the importance of last name has gotten less and less important.

Kelly Clarkson-can't say one without the other
Clay Aikens- Aikens is just icing on the cake, can go with just Clay
Reuben- Does he even have a last name?

Coastr Crazy 72
02-13-2004, 11:06 PM
No it definitly won't be as good as Clay/Rueben.

I don't think last names were ever that important, at least to me ::confused::

coastergenius100
02-14-2004, 11:11 PM
I don't know, I never cared much for Reuben, nothing against him personally, he seemed like a great guy, but I think that Clay sounded a lot better.

Carowinds 73-03

Wes
02-15-2004, 05:47 PM
Well I also heard that so many people tried to vote for Clay, that it jammed the phone line. Don't know if that's true or not, but it would explain a lot.

What are you talking about? You lost me. Playing what game?

Getting back to the show...

Tonight!

What happened!!??!!

This group was awful.

I voted for #5 and #1. (The girl that was kind of a little overweight, and the football player). The girl was the best tonight of any IMO. I didn't care for the girl from Hawaii. The rest pretty much stunk. :kraken:

The top 12 are set and the real fun begins. Out of the 12 who is your fav? I'm torn between Fantasia (just b/c she's from NC) & The john peter guy who dod the elvis song last week. Ok discuss.

Wes
03-13-2004, 10:27 AM
I liked:

Fantasia
The football guy that played in the RoseBowl, can't remember his name
The girl that sang last in the 3rd group, can't remember her name. Kind of looks like Fantasia a little bit

Didn't like

John Peter. How in the world did America pick him!!!??!!! The only time I liked him singing was his initial singing before Simon and Randy


The rest are just ok. I haven't seen but about 2 or 3 of the 12 that look like future stars.

Carowinds 73-03
03-13-2004, 09:24 PM
Me either. This years group in now way compares to last years where last year the final 5-8 were very good and could very likely get contracts. This year is going to be tough since the talent isen't that great. I'm sure i will get a good idea who will win once they get down to the final 5 or 6.

I agree, The show is ok but it's not the best. I kinda like it. The singers this year are not near as good as last years.

Valpengeist
03-16-2004, 05:52 PM
IMO... LaToyah London's song in Round 3 was better than pretty much anything I've ever heard from Clay or Ruben. If she can do that each week and even improve... wow, that'd be good...

I like this year's top 12 more than last year... but then again, I'm following it more closely now than season two.

The last few weeks I have seen Idol for the first time. I must say, it is better than Survivor, and the way Simon cracks on some of them is even better. Its not something I would choose to watch, but on Tuesday nights, there really aren't anything to watch.

Ok well I havn't been following the show in a while and unless this last show was a rerun then this round is officially over.

I thought Jasmine and the last girl were the best I've seen. Jasmine was beyond amazing. I loved her voice and the soing she chose. She will definitly go through.

Valpengeist
03-16-2004, 10:15 PM
Wow.... best episode ever, best top 12. Easily.

My personal favorite is Jennifer Hudson, but so there were so many good ones tonight! LaToya, Fantasia, Jennifer, Jasmine, and Dianna were all the best...

Camille & Leah were the worst... but I don't really care who goes. Camille probably has more potential, but Leah looks better and has a bit more personality.

Coastr Crazy 72
03-16-2004, 10:17 PM
I forgot about Lotoya. She was really good too. I didn't like Fantasia too much, I hate her attitude but she does have a good voice. Some of the others are definitly better though.

Man all i have to say is where did these 12 people hide their voices all through auditions. I mean 2-3 of them were pretty good but i though the rest were not. After seeing tonight i would agree that this so far would be the best 12 i have seen. I have never heard simon give so many great/awsome remarks. I was totally blown away tonight.

Coastr Crazy 72

The singers this year are not near as good as last years.


Sorry i just had to quote myself. I retract that pervious statement. I said it before i watched the show tonight.

Wes
03-17-2004, 07:53 AM
I was really surprised last night. This is by far the best 12. It didn't look that way going into this week though.

I liked the first girl, Fantasia, and the girl from Hawaii with the flower in her hair ( I can't remember names) and the very last girl as well.

I don't see why people are liking John (the pen salemen) lol I just really don't care for his voice. He doesn't pronounce his words either, kind of mumbles them IMO.

I also liked George that sang sitting on the dock of the bay. He started out, and I was like wow! He sounds almost exactly like Otis Redding!

You know I downloaded the whole show from last nite and I watched it again. Matt wasn't too bad either. He picked a really hard song and he pulled it off.

Ok, Who does everyone think is going to be voted off tonight. It's hard for me since most of then were really bad last night unlike the first night but then again not everyone can sing country. The last girl with pink hair totally rocked out on the Dixie Chicks sone. She was awsome.

Magnum Robert

oh i know and he was so rude all the time like he was really full of himself.

Wes
03-25-2004, 07:50 AM
I didn't think he was rude. I just think he was your "typical" football player. Think 2nd and talk 1st kind of mentality. Not that all football players are that way, but I've seen it before.

I liked his voice somewhat, but he wasn't that strong a singer on stage. I think the pink haired girl might go next week.

Carowinds 73-03

I wasen't suprised to see him go last night. I though his time was coming soon, just not that soon.

Wes
03-26-2004, 05:44 AM
My music pastor brought up a good point when I was talking to him yesterday though. AI does the tour after the season is over, and they only take the Top 10 people. So Matt won't be on the tour, and that girl that killed her song (that should have gone this week IMO) will be going. Which is going to be terrible for those that see the tour, unless she actually gets better. I can't believe she's made it this far. :rolleyes:

Magnum Robert
03-26-2004, 11:14 AM
^ Which girl who killed her song? A couple of girls haven't been very good lately, IMO.

Wes

The one that sang Desperado.

Carowinds 73-03
03-26-2004, 07:40 PM
I think she is next to go. I'm also suprised she's still on the show.

Valpengeist
03-27-2004, 09:13 AM
^ Her name is Camille Velasco, and she deserves to leave next.

After she's gone, things get pretty interesting. Amy Adams and Jennifer Hudson (one of my personal faves) seem to be near the bottom (although they're excellent). Then you've got that "middle ground" with everyone else... except for that 'upper tier' with Fantasia and Latoya.

Good season... good season.

Magnum Robert
04-02-2004, 02:40 PM
Amy Adams got this boot this time. That's fine with me. I couldn't stand looking at her hair for much longer. I'm also sick of seeing that smiling George guy and hope he goes soon.

Prediction: Next to get the boot will be the red-haired guy---can't remember his name.

stevetothekizzo
04-02-2004, 02:59 PM
Fantasia and the flower in the hair girl will be the final two. Fantasia should win. If she doesn't, she'll at least have a record contract. She is the only one in my opinion that stands out...maybe it's her huge mouth.

Wes
04-02-2004, 04:40 PM
I agree Fantasia will get a record contract no matter what happens. I can't believe that Camile is still in it. She was good in the tryouts, but hasn't sang on key the last 3 weeks!

John, or whatever the redheaded guys name is, will probably go next. If people are still voting for Camile (and I don't know why) then they will probably vote John off, then Camile. Almost all the remaining after those two are voted off are good singers. It will be hard to tell who will survive each week.

Valpengeist
04-06-2004, 09:18 PM
Good night tonight on AI3! It was Elton John songs night, and everyone either sank or swam...

How I rank tonight's performances:

1) Latoya London- very, very good performance tonight... excellent job LtL! She has a Whitney Houston-esque star quality about her...

2) Jennifer Hudson- now, she's been in the bottom three each week, but her "Circle of Life" tonight was outstanding! I'm voting for her...

3) George Huff- how can't you like this guy? He's really improved so much... it's a joy to watch him... he might win the whole thing.

4) Fantasia Barrino- she's been good week in & week out, but this week was one of her weaker showings... still very good though...

5) Diana Degarmo- she's great, as always... she's just so young (16)... she's got a power-voice in the making... just keep improving...

6) Jasmine Trias- she was a little pitchy, but Paula gave her great advice (grow during your performance)... she'll be around for a while...

7) John Peter Lewis- um... okay... good... he does have an awesome voice somewhere inside him, but he needs to find it...

8) Camille Velasco- I like Camille, but she's just not up to par with the rest... I can see her being more of a success as a jazz/R&B singer...

9) John Stevens- boy, he just doesn't fit in anymore... America, don't vote for him. Wait for Sinatra/1940s Idol... besides, he's only 16 so he'll have room to grow...

I wish John Stevens would leave next, but he does have a large fan base... hopefully he and Camille will be the ones to go in the next two weeks.

Wes
04-07-2004, 07:50 AM
Most of them sank last night IMO. ;)

Latoya London, Jennifer Hudson, George Huff, Fantasia Barrino were all great. I voted for Fantasia and Jennifer

Camille needs to go! Diana is not one of my favorites either. She's been pitchy too many times for it to be coincidence.

Also, I don't know why people like JPLewis so much. I can't stand his voice, and please don't dance anymore JPL!!! :eek:

Valpengeist
04-07-2004, 08:18 AM
I normally don't vote, but I voted about five times for Jennifer and Latoyah... sure, not very much out of 20 million, but I have been counted... ;)

I really, really hope John Stevens will be sent home. It's become painful to watch him... I think Camille needs to stay, just because I'm thinking she hasn't 'come out of her shell' yet.

Magnum Robert
04-07-2004, 09:48 AM
I wasn't impressed with George last night. I thought his voice was rather raspy and just not up to par, IMO.

I think Camille will be next to go. We'll find out soon :)

In general my predictions of allimination are:

8: John Steevens (america will hopfully do this kid a favor and kick him off so he doesnt need to take all the insults anymore.)

7: JPL (Sorry but i don't see what everyone thinks about him?)

6: Diana (Shes good, don't get me wrong but 16 is just not old enough!)

5: Jasmine ( Shes not up to par with the other contestants...)

4: Fantasia (THE SHOCKER OF THE SEASON! America will notice her little attitude problem...)

3: George (Hes awesome!!!! One of my faves but i can't see him being the idol. Don't ask me why. I just get a feeling inside...)

2: Jennifer (She just keeps getting better week after week! Awesome renditions of Heatwave and Circle Of Life! Shes the Kimberly Locke of this years contestants.)

1: La Toya (She has the "X" factor! Amazing! Simply Amazing! All By Myself was one of the best performenses i've ever hear on the show! Shes never given a trully bad performence. And if Elton John said he would give her a record contract on the spot.... I think america would too. GOOOOOOOO LA TOYA LONDON!!!!!)

My personal favorite in the entire competition went from having the most votes last week to the least votes this week... ALSO major shocker- Fantasia Barrino and Latoya London joined her in the bottom three vote-getters!

America!- Wake up!- Save the competition!- Vote for Fantasia and Latoya!!!!!

(sad, sad day.... sad, sad, sad....)

I agree. Either Fantasia or Latoya has the talent to win this competition. I really can't see anyone else winning other than one of these two.

I'm glad to see Jennifer Hudson go, sorry.

Valpengeist
04-21-2004, 11:27 PM
I honestly don't see how you can be glad to see Jennifer leave when you've got John Stevens, Jasmine Trias, and Diana Degarmo sitting safely on the couch. There's something terribly wrong there! I was so looking forward to a Top Three with tonight's Bottom Three... Jennifer had such a powerful voice... I hope we'll see her again- I want an album of hers!

Every week here out I will be voting for Fantasia and Latoya at least 25 times each until the finale. No one else deserves it.

Wes
04-22-2004, 08:16 AM
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!

JENNIFER HUDSON- ELIMINATED!

I'm with you Valpengeist. This is really stupid. I loved Jennifer, and she was getting better each week too!

I think it must be mostly young teenage girls voting, and their voting for cute boys (John) and until last week (JPL). They obviously are not voting for talent.

I hope Jennifer gets a record contract. I would probably buy her CD. She's so talented.

Oh well, such is life on AI. :)

Wes

Ok. So based on this week's show, if I could talk to all of America that voted, I'd be telling most of them that they're stupid. I might not even watch it anymore because of what happened. These other people SUCK. I wanted the diva's to be in the top 3. Oh well. I guess once again, I'm bad at recognizing talent.

coasetrphil

This show now blows even more than it did before. America sucks at decided who is talented and who isn't, just look at the music charts.

Wes
04-24-2004, 03:43 PM
I don't think people are voting based on talent. I think it's just an image thing. As coastrphil said, just look at the music charts.

As a general rule, most of the Top 40 music today sucks. There are exceptions, but they are few and far between.

One of the bands or singers from I think the 80's was talking about how terrible it is, that none of the singers today can even play an instrument, read music, etc.

Slowly but surely the music industry has been filled up with stupid singers, that can't really sing that well, and are just helped by computers that can clean up their vocals in my opinion.

Well, tonight featured the music of (and guest judge) Gloria Estefan. On the whole, it was a weak night, but Latino music is quite a difficult genre with which to blow people away. I felt Diana and Latoya gave the best performances of the night...

Last week proved you can't ever think certain contestants are safe... so this week I took action like I said I would on the previous page.

I've voted 100 times so far (Latoya & Fantasia- 35 each, Diana-25, George-5), and I plan on voting for LaFanta in this next hour. Yeah, I'm an AI nerd, but we don't want another Jennifer Hudson/Tamyra Gray moment, do we?

If you haven't voted, go VOTE! It's quite easy...

That's true, ^... but of all of them, Diana handled it the best.

A reality show website posted an article saying that this was too late in the competition for Latin night, because it's getting down to the wire, and you can bet your... whatever than none of these would dare to put a Latin song on their album. Themes like this one and country belong earlier in the competition.

Simon put it best, when using analogy that fit one contestant (but could easily fit most of them after last night). "John- you and Latin music go together like chocolate ice cream and an onion."

I think you're talking about the guy that sings the Ricky Martin song "She bangs".

I heard one of the other songs online and he ends the song off key, as well as the rest of the time he sounds like he's drunk, or just learned English yesterday.

When he auditioned for AI, he sang She bangs, and then when they told him he stunk, he said "I have no professional training!". Simon said something like, "That was the understatement of the Century." lol

I guess people find it funny, that's the only reason I could see people buying the CD. He's a terrbile singer.

Everyone around here was pulling for John so he got a bunch of votes from these parts, obviously not enough. I must say I HATE FANTASIA! She does sound like she is on helium, I cannot stand her voice and every song turns into Gospel when she sings it (same story with Jennifer Hudson, who Thank God is gone). I can guarantee that La Toya London will be the next American Idol unless someone has been hiding something this whole time. No real need to watch anymore.

Yeah, a lot of it is luck. And having the judges in the right mood that day. I've seen them send through crappy people, then some of the ones I like are cut.

But oh well, I still say Matt shouldn't have been cut so early. :kraken: *:-)

I was surprised they booted her too. She was getting on my nerves by that point though, and if I had to listen to her each week now, I think I'd go crazy. Oh wait, too late for that. ;)

Frenchie was dropped because they found out she had done porno or something along those lines, and it violated their contract/code of ethics with Fox for the show.

Yeah thats what i heard but i think FOX made way to big a deal about it. So she did a little porn, what singer/actress hasent these days. Heck even Janet has now done porn, but not really. I guess i understand why Fox dropped her but not completely. I wonder if she was honest and up front about it would they have let her stay.

I honestly don't why so many people dislike Fantasia... she's got an excellent, unique voice, tons of personality, and the whole 'star' persona. Her first song last night was very good... the best of the first group of songs.

I've been so surprised with Diana lately... she's really been stepping it up, eh? Her second song last night was one of the best we've heard in weeks...

Latoya- well, with her first song, Simon said it best:
“There’s nothing much we can add anymore as far as singing, we know you are a very good singer… the second half was good, the rest I was kind of bored… my only criticism is we’ve known you for ten-eleven weeks, and I feel like I know nothing more about you then I did 11 weeks ago… disco is one week when you could have tried something different.”
However, she totally went crazy on her second song and brought it to a new level. That's what we should have been seeing more and more of each week!

Jasmine should go. Definitely. But if you recall, in Season One, this very week, the wonderful Tamyra Gray got the boot while Nikki McKibbin stayed... and last season, Josh Gracin somehow slipped past Trenyce. Hopefully, America will get it right this time!

I resolve to vote for Fantasia Barrino as many times as I can next Tuesday night. No stopping. None. Nobody else deserves to win it... yes, not even Diana, and especially not Jasmine.

La Toya really kicked tail with her "farewell" song- "Don't Rain on My Parade." It says it all... she'll be back.

Wowsers.

This is so stupid!

What is America voting on, it sure ain't talent!!!

Ok off the soapbox. Calm down bgwfreak ;)

But that's just rediculous.

The final 3 should have been Jennifer, Latoya and Fantasia. And I voted this time, for everyone but Jasmine too.

Now it's not going to be nearly as good. Fantasia should easily win it. Unless these idiots keep voting for Jasmine :rolleyes:

This is going to be one awful week for Jasmine- now she's the villain of the show, and it's not really her fault. I suppose America was more touched by a crying teenager with a voice that should have been voted off weeks ago than truly wonderful singers and performers.

Randy said it best- out of over 70,000 people who tried out, America put the very best two in the bottom two. He doesn't get it.

Now, I just hope Diana keeps singing at the level she's been performing so at least the final two shows might be somewhat exciting.

Ok nobody says "you go girl" unless you're black or gay. Come to think of it, you could be one of the two.... or both. Sorry Robert. ;)

Anyway, Fantasia had better win because she is the only one that has an original sound. The blonde chick is like every other teenie bopper singer. Jasmine just sucks. La Toya was good but not original. I could get used to hearing Fantasia on the radio. Her songs would have a good feel.

I thought Fantasia was back to being the best this week. Diana just seems to struggle with her notes more than Fantasia does.

I tried to vote for Fantasia and Diana last night all the way up until 11, and couldn't even get through!

I think she's a great entertainer. She hit more high notes than Diana did IMO.

But that's just my opinion.

She's not my style of singer, but she did a great version of Chain of Fools last night. Sounds a lot like Aretha.

Valpengeist
05-19-2004, 05:05 PM
Fantasia desrves to win... her performances last night were stellar. Chain of Fools was perfect, the one Simon chose for her was still awesome, and her last one proved she can sing the ballads with anyone else.

And Deja-Vu... yes, Fantasia can sing. I didn't see Clive Davis telling Jasmine or Diana that if he heard them sing in a basement in Kansas, he'd sign them right away.

Now, give Diana a couple of years, and she'll be outstanding. But now, Fantasia owns.

^^ Well Fantasia's from NC, that doesn't mean I have to vote for her ;)

I think it will be another close vote this year.

I think Fantasia will squeak out a win. The only thing that I see hurting her, is her accent. A lot of northern people say she's just annoying to listen to.

And I have to agree to a degree. And I'm from the south too! She's just too twangy when she speaks.

I think she's a good entertainer. But I wouldn't buy her CD.

I'm not bothered by Fantasia's accent, but do think her voice is slightly raspy.

Overall, Diana is the better singer (and much better looking), IMO. I'd be willing to bet Diana sells more records than Fantasia a year from now.

Valpengeist
05-20-2004, 04:52 PM
I honestly believe Fantasia has the better voice... sure, Diana can hit more high notes more easily, but she's just too young- her voice isn't developed nearly as much as Fantasia. Plus, Fantasia "colors" her songs more- you know, more dynamics, emotion, style, etc.

My main reason for my votes is uniqueness. Diana fits into the cookie cutter of most every other female pop star/dive out there today, while Fantasia is so... her own. A league of her own.

Carowinds 73-03
