I don't follow the show all that much but I thought only amateurs were allowed to audition?

It is kind of that way, I believe, but guys like this, Daughtry and also that David Cook guy had all released CDs before getting on the show. I'm guessing because they're all indie CDs and not major label releases that's okay. I don't think anyone who's released a CD on a major label can audition. Although, there was one Aussie guy last season who'd been in a boy band who were big in Asia... surely that would have been a decent label? Seriously, at the end of the day I have no idea. Clearly. :lol:

 

The thing is, this guy, Keith Semple, was in a UK boy band before 7th Heaven too. He may even have a major label release under his belt too?

Yeah he did, it was to find a band rather than an individual singer. He & some other losers then formed 'One True Voice' (or something like that) which were a shit boyband who lasted a couple of singles and then split. Not sure they ever even released an album....

I can't judge his presence on stage, but he has got a damn good voice, imo, and a wide range. You've got to give him that.

there have been some artist that have had major label releases that did NOTHING in sales. I guess the amount of success your release has a lot to do with it. I remember a couple seasons ago that about half the final 12 had cd that had been released and several were on major labels with big producers. one even had a produces that worked with LeAnn Rhimes produce her album.

Haha, well there you go. I thought somewhere in the back of my mind he might have already done it, but I wasn't sure. Then again, isn't that how all boybands are formed? I assume so, whether it's televised or not.

American Idol this season and stay playing in 7th heaven."

Wow, I obviously won't see this but would appreciate if someone could let me know why he won't be doing the show.

From the 7th Heaven Newsletter:

 

Yes, we can FINALLY tell all of you about Keith trying out for American Idol. He made it thru a bunch of rounds and got thru to Hollywood, but had a snag in his citizenship visa going thru (he currently is on a employment visa). We knew Keith was interested in doing this, as he won this in the UK already and has a gold record from it, so it was no surprise to the band that the American idol thing would naturally be next. When Keith tried out he was sworn to not tell anyone, including the band, so it wasn't until Simon gave Keith some grief over him not telling the band that it became a issue. American Idol came out to my house and shot a whole story on Keith and 7th heaven, which would have aired if he was able to go to Hollywood. When the visa was delayed, they had to reject his golden ticket. Once Fox Chicago found out about this they wanted to do a story on Keith and 7th heaven. So check that out here:

Cool, thanks for the info. Will check out the youtube thing at home. Looks like they could get some decent exposure out of this.

    • No he can push all he wants, he can bitch and fight and argue, and say the most insane liberal shit he can think of, but first this morning I had to fucking hear it from Karisa, then I get on here to escape her and Glens being a disrespectful motherfucker, we can talk shit, and insult each other, and clown and make fun, and be mean as we want, but when you start talking to me like im a fucking punk then my attitude will follow suit, Ive gone above and beyond to treat HH community with respect and I am about as laid back as your going to find me on here, but if we are gonna be mean, then just get it out in the open, cause I got zero problem with mean, but dont think for a second im not gonna be mean back, theres a huge line between trolling and talking to someone like their a bitch, trust me I know, I do both daily, this is the last im going to say about this, this is my position, so laugh it up, make your jokes, talk your shit, then drop it, fuckin liberals, lol
    • What is the new Covid variant and why is it a concern? Scientists have detected a new Covid-19 variant called B.1.1.529 and are working to understand its potential implications. About 100 confirmed cases have been identified in South Africa, Hong Kong, Israel and Botswana.   B.1.1.529 has a very unusual constellation of mutations, which are worrying because they could help it evade the body’s immune response and make it more transmissible, scientists have said. Any new variant that is able to evade vaccines or spread faster than the now-dominant Delta variant may pose a significant threat as the world emerges from the pandemic. Dr Susan Hopkins, the chief medical adviser to the UK Health Security Agency, said the R value, or effective reproduction number, of the B.1.1.529 variant in the South African province of Gauteng, where it was first found, was now 2 – a level of transmission not recorded since the beginning of the pandemic, before restrictions began to be imposed. For an R of anything above 1, an epidemic will grow exponentially.
    • Now kids... fight nice. This is the Flamefest section, so there's a bit more latitude here than in other areas. I think Glen is deliberately pushing your buttons, i.e., trolling you... especially since he "couldn't care less about U.S. politics"... *ahem*. He know he can push you into a rant. Don't fall for it. Ignore him like most of the rest of the people here do.
    • While I'm in the atheist camp I do not have a problem with most of the people who have faith in God....to each their own...as for Xmas , it is a holiday and should be about family and if religion is a necessary part of it for you, then so be it.....
