OTOH, I like P2..he's totsally relaxed...notice that each week his "wardrobe" consists of a new tee...and is not awed by this new, fleeting fame...he's a good kid..and let's not forget..they are all kids...
OMG. They play that song at the gym. It doesn't matte what time I go, that stupid song is on constantly.
LOL! I always liked to picture myself more like Mrs. White then Miss Scarlett.
I can’t believe they got rid of Skylar! Especially after P2 stunk up the joint for the second week in a row. Week 5 is traditionally a weird elimination week. Skylar will be fine career wise, though.
JLos reaction...you mean the fake tear she wiped away on cue?
Noticed that, and also thought she had a “ what am I going to say about
performers now” look , as that was her big line with Skylar each time she
she is a true, raw talent of the likes that we havent seen since Heart, Joplin and Ronstadt in the 1970s...
great company to be compared to.
she will be missed for the energy she brought to the stage
‘Idol’ recap: Skylar Laine leaves; Lopez defends 16-year-old Jessica Sanchez’s racy outfit
LOL talk about your media driven storyline. The story is made up and is only in Jlo’s mind. The real story is how Jlo put down everyday Americans by not being as open minded as she is. Sigh* The sheeple are feed again.
Well you gotta admit it, we’re all a bunch of prudes here in America. You know if someone has to explain it to her, she just wouldn’t understand.
Fixing tag line.
No, it isn't the real story. The story is that she explained to Seacrest that Hollywood is out of touch with the rest of the country, and she said it in response to Jimmy Iovine's comments to wardrobe to stop dressing Jessica so maturely. She acknowledged that they are the ones who don't think twice about things like that because they're used to seeing it every day. It's a different world out in LA, and she admitted it. It was a welcome comment for anyone looking for that sort of admission.
Paranoia runs deep on an FR Idol thread. Did you hear that they're trying to ram Jessica Sanchez down our throats for liberal reasons...never mind that her dad is in the U.S. Navy, deployed right now in Singapore, having served in Iraq and Afghanistan in Desert Storm and other theaters?
Thanks for not reading this!
Thanks, I had a feeling it wan’t right.
Sorry dude I'll post to whoever I want as long as I'm signed up as a poster at Free Republic. Feel free to ignore what I have to say.
And thanks for not reading this!
I just figured you’d probably want to know it wasn’t right. :)
Sorry dude but you can post till your fingers bleed and the keys on your keyboard become stuck in congealed blood but it does not change the fact that you made yourself totally irrelevant to the discussion on this thread by calling everybody that disagrees with you a racist and moron and by doing so you totally lost all credibility and any argument you were trying to make. You are a prime example of Goodwins Rule even thou you didnt directly use the Nazi or Hitler comparison you were close enough to that it applies to you.
Just because you are into a certain sound it does not mean that millions of others share that same interest. Bottom line everyone knows, will all most everyone, that musical taste is a personal preference for each person as they discern what is pleasing to the ear. People freely chose what they like to be entertained by. So as an entertainer it is up to them to captivate the audience and if they cant it doesnt matter how good they are technically.
I love Hound Dog Taylor. For me he has a unique sound with his guitar playing and voice but I know not everyone is not into it. But even thou I really enjoy his music I dont go around berating people who do not like him. So it is with American Idol. It is an entertainment contest where the audience votes for their favorites. Like Lana Del Rey no matter how hard they try you can not force anyone to like what you like. No matter how many venues they put her in for public exposure or how they repackage her she only appeals to a very niche market and not to the broad public masses. And since AI is held in the free republic of America when we as citizens have the right to vote for any person we choose then the will of the free people will triumph. We dont need anyone telling us who we should like or who we should vote for.
Some people have poor taste. Some people have bad taste. Ever heard of those concepts? If not, it's because your taste is bad or poor. People with good taste appreciate higher-quality art, craft and talent. People with bad taste/poor taste will probably enjoy Phillip Phillips better than the rest of the talent on American Idol this year.
Point me to the post where I called everybody who disagrees with me a racist. Thanks in advance.
And thanks for not reading this!
Chunga is such a waste of electrons. And thanks for reading thus!
And the folks on this thread who have called me a Fascist are what? Accurate?
I was on a boat ride Thursday night. I decided not to vote any more for any shows. I’m just sick of voting except for against Obama, et al. I’m going to keep watching but so over voting. America is wrong a lot imo.
Hi, Ken. The left coast likes PP. I think he’s not so great - what’s the fuss about? Same old blah week after week. Sorry Skylar’s gone but she’s going to be just fine. I am not voting any more. I wish they would change and have a different way to pick the winner. Eventually, other fans of these shows are gonna get sick of voting. I suppose/surmise that I’m the second wave of fans of shows sick of voting.
tip toeing to 700 plays copy?
Skylar was just already a pro imo. That energy and she never messed anything up. Already a winner. Now she’s got name recognition and after their little tour, look out, America. Country girl’s gonna get a grammy. She’ll give Taylor Swift a run for her money. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

You will make 1000... Go for it.

With that energy she should do well.
Pulling for Hollie, but feel we are headed for a Jessica/Joshua showdown.
PP could come in as the dark horse, and join Lee D in the Big Lots bargain CD section.....
I think Kris Allen, Taylor Hicks, Lee DeWyze and Phillip Phillips should start a group and call it "DeWyze Guys." Maybe between the four of them they can fill a room.
Thanks for your excellent commentary, as always...and thanks for not reading this!
Don’t know if you watch the Voice, but if you get a chance compare the winner
Jermaine Paul with Joshua Ledet....
Wonder if Randy would put Jermaine in the “ top singers of all time “ category if he had competed on Idol , and how he would rank them head to head
Will be interested in your take.

something about that picture of Ryan and Phillip just looks strange
Hi, Mags! :)
Good evening, folks!
To quote Larry the Cable Guy....If Jennifer Lopez’ skirt were any shorter, she’d need to wear a hairnet!
The wardrobe department must really hate the judges.
Someone didn’t learn from last week’s CCR song.
More like these are the four that are left.
I hope Hollie isn’t doing CCR.
She'd have to powder four cheeks!
You mean the 4 that are left because of votefortheworst.com
