GREAT JOB JONNY AS ALWAYS! - YOU ARE MY AMERICAN IDOL!
My favorites are Chris Daughtry, Kellie Pickler and Ace Young. Daughtry did a bada$$ version of Walk the Line the other night. No matter what he needs to record that.
I wish we could've kept the old thread going, but oh well.
Couldn't agree more :)
Did John McCain shut down the original thread?
If you can, please center the table in post #1. Thanks.
Just tell McCain "All your Idols belong to us"
Well Idol is really getting "hot" this year and you are probably looking at another 1 or 2 threads of 15,000 posts each before it is all over with this year.
I am looking forward to this Tuesday's Idol more than ever.
It should be real interesting.
Have a great weekend! I won't be on here much as I have company coming tomorrow and then Sunday I will be gone for the day.
Hey, you have been busy!!
Not much action on the threads tonight...so thought I would visit and bookmark this new thread.
Why the new thread?
This is a generic note to the posters of this thread. You all need to start a new thread, this one is getting too large for our system. If someone can start a new thread and let us know, we can link this one to the new thread. Thanks, AM
