American Idol


Recommended Posts

anyone watching? I had gotten out of watching the show the last 2 years. for some strange reason I started watching this year and I do like a couple of the guys on the show. I really don't care for the one girl that is the favorite to win it, Crystal whatz-her-name.

I haven't watched this year at all and really stopped watching about 2 or 3 years ago but I can't remember for sure. To be honest the only season I've actually enjoyed was the one with Bo Bice since he'd do good rock songs like Black Crowes and the great Badlands cover. That reminds me he has a new disc coming out soon.

Caught a few performances here and there this season. To be honest, Crystal Bowersox was the only one who could carry a tune in a bucket when I watched. I don't see her ever being as popular as Kelly clarkson or Carrie Underwood, but she's definitely the best of this year's lacklustre batch.

I would only be tempted to watch these programmes if the viewers could phone in to vote for which of the panel was going to be tortured that week.

 

If the American show is anything like the UK versions, you need a widescreen TV just to fit in the judges' egos.

Is this show still on? I hadn't noticed. :blink:

 

Nah, but seriously, until recently my wife had been an avid "Idol" viewer every year, so I'd generally catch a few performances here and there (usually via osmosis from the other room), but she hasn't been paying much attention to it this season(for some Ungodly reason she's discovered Dancing With the Stars instead) so I don't even know who the players are this year.

So I hear Alice Cooper (!) and Bret Michaels both turned up on the "Idol" finale last night.

Any of my American friends watching the current series? It's finally back here on Aussie screens. Last series I saw was the one with Daughtry, which was an age ago.

 

Anyway, as luck would have it, this is probably the only series so far without a "rock guy" in it, I assume? Shame we didn't get a series with the likes of Colton Dixon, who I must say, having heard his CD the other day, is pretty damn good.

 

Anyway, so this series is completely "rock free," but if anyone's watching, do you have a firm fave? And if so, is it Angie? As cliche as it is in context of the show, I've absolutely loved her since her original tune, which I truly think was a great song, and I'd listen to in a heartbeat. She's my clear-cut fave and I really hope she wins so I can download... Uh I mean, buy, her CD. The fact that a couple of the judges are trying to push her in the rock direction is pretty sweet too.

 

And, uh, so... Lazaro. Aussie voters are a bit the same in these type of situations... but jeezus wept, American public, just let this guy go. Please. I know it's a moving story and I'm happy for the guy that he got a chance and a real go, but seriously, he is terrible. He really is. Voting for him based on his story is stupid and not really helping anyone. Everyone wants him gone, everyone knows he's terrible. Just let it end.

 

Oh, and isn't it just insane, the gap between the girls and the guys this year? Never seen anything like it on any of these shows, but it should just have been a top 5 fro the start, with just the girls, and none of the guys should have been there. They were all very average, whilst the girls are all great. Well, maybe not the little blonde girl - Janelle - but she's cute enough to keep there.

Haven't watched it at all this past year. Much as I love Mariah Carey and looked forward to the opportunity to gaze at her cleavage every week (while completely ignoring the contestants and competition, of course), the addition of Nicki Minaj to the judge panel counteracted that. I swear that chick is boner Kryptonite.

To be honest, I don't really know who she is, but she does seem to have a nice big rack, and there's a lot of junk in her trunk. But she's stupid. But okay to look at when her hair's normal. Definitely no Mariah, though. :wub:

I don't really know who she is either, but I swear "she" looks like a guy in drag in most of the photos I've seen since she started on "Idol."

So the question is, hittable or not?

In more ways than 1 YES!

 

Maybe if you mean "hittable" as in "with a shovel, upside the head." Otherwise,,,,mmmmm, nah. Aside from the norks, I still say "she" looks like a guy in drag.

Anyone watching this series and see the fat dude open the show with Twisted Sister's 'I wanna rock?' In the US Twisted Sister are probably a household name, but it seemed pretty cool to me, lol.

 

Then the second guy comes on and belts out another hard rock classic - Michael Bolton's 'How am I supposed to live without you.' Weird choice, as that dude had been pretty good up until now.

How am I supposed to live without you a hard rock classic? About as much as Celine Didn't my heart will go on!

I used to like the idol shows but just switched off in recent years.

Is my sarcasm honestly that impossible to see these days? You freakin' Aussies... ;)

I assume no one's tuned into this this year, but if anyone is, the black dude with the dreadlocks must win, amirite? Dude sets the stage alight!
