I was commenting at FB on their AI feed. They stepped in it: How do you like tonight’s show so far?
“We get a preview of Joshua’s homecoming in Louisiana.
After seeing a cheering crowd, a bewildered Joshua says, “They’re acting like I’m Barak Obama.”
But unlike Obama, Joshua can fill a stadium.”
“The judges and Jimmy are acting as A&R reps for the show. They’re interested in finding talent who can sell records. Iovine talks about this every week. The problem is not that the judges don’t recognize talent, because they do, and their standing ovations and comments reflect their personal taste as well as who they believe is marketable.”
Wow! Your first paragraph totally contradicts the other six paragraphs you wrote. Sorry dude but Gloria Allred would not be able make that convoluted twisted logic fly in a court room let alone the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals they would laugh you out of there. I mean the OJ Dream Team would run away from you and those guys would take anybody as a client. LOL
You can NOT use the judges and mentors statements and actions for your affirmation of what you believe and then turn around and completely dismiss the judges statements and actions praising and endorsements of the other contestants as totally meaningless. Maybe in your world but in ours the sky is blue and BS is always BS.
Hey I am pleased as are most of Americans that we are in the same demographic as Steven Tyler, Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez, and Jimmy Lovine. We agree with them on the talent in this show.
But by being very selective of the judges statements and using torturous logic of the judges actual meanings to try and up hold your aruguments just what demographic category does that put you in? Maybe the delusional demographic or would it be The Ferlies demographic for you. Come on dude you can admit it you ended with a bad Mohawk and all your fingers in splints from dialing trying to keep Sanjaya in the competition.
you should hear the Jamey Johnson version of Turn the page! The guy is a huge throwback!
They showed the "Touch" kid in the audience.
I wonder if he started rocking back and froth uncontrollably and screaming when he realized this.
Well maybe they can get LiLo on also and just think of the drama of "Boobies" falling out and them constantly trying to find their underware before the show. And who knows what will end up in their drink cups. I mean come on the paparazzi will make a fortune running photos of the upskirts each time one them falls out of their chairs.
Darn, she's married. :-(
I think Joshua belongs in the Top 3, he's definitely a talented performer, however I wasn't thrilled with any of his performances tonight.
Phillip2 had one out of three that I cared for (Beggin'). The last song he seemed disinterested in, as was I, which is a shame as it's a great song.
Luckily on the second go around I had several episodes of RedEye stored up so I did the split screen thing and let The Notorious Rapper P.A.B. (Patti Ann Brown for those in Rio Linda) hypnotize me to my happy place with her leg swinging back and forth while occupying the coveted Leg Chair. Or was it her breasts either way I went to my happy place and that AI show was never thought of again.
I am with you as far as tonight show went on AI they could not have put on a bigger snooze fest leading up to the final two. I watched it twice even thou on the second go around I was ever so slightly distracted by Patti Ann Brown I still can't remember a performance that stood out. It was just one long monotoned song for me.
Who ever was picking out these tunes must have been on the pay-role of ASCAP and really needed the royaltie checks. This is supposed to be the night they all bring it and really kick it up a notch but instead of Emeril Lagasse hyped up on energy drinks we got Martha Stewart overdosing on Zolof while eating a whole deep fried turkey.
Yeah maybe PP can hook up with Ta-Ta and both do a lounge act together in Vegas. The one tune he did he nailed it but who cares like the rest of them tonight all boring.
I would like to see the beginning show ratings Vs. the end of the show ratings. I would say if Ledet gets through he should win it. If there are any viewers still awake next week to vote for him that is.
LOL I caught that too. I think Steven needs to stay out of the GAP and Deb Store for awhile and hook up with Adam Coroalla and build a Man-Cave or something.
You know Joey Carbone?
Shall I add more bunks to my Doomsday Bunker? :)
(BYOB: Bring Your Own Beans)
All the votes in the world won't sustain a big time music career for the three if the foundation's not there. Then, throw in some really dated material and it's a snoozefest. 1. gospel guy 2. chick who has it all but please, not all at once and 3. cute guy whose start will burn out in a year. What a selection to get confettied. It's turned into a confetti party.
Anyway, Mary K Blige is on a lot cuz she's one of Jimmy Iodine's (better name for him) peeps.
The question is: who will get the confetti and the balloons cuz after the tour, that will be the highlight of their night next Wednesday nite.
It’s a gospel gerbil so it’s all good...
