This thread has truly been an oasis!
Texasflower ~ May 19, 2005

.

All of the American Idol threads this season have been dedicated in memory of Tammy Gammon. She had such a good time here, laughing, surrounded by her friends—I don’t know of any other place on FR where honoring her would have been more appropriate.

This is our third Idol thread and it will likely be the last for 2006, the last for Tammy. But all future Idol threads, if I have anything to say about it, will carry TEXASFLOWER in the keywords as a continuing tribute to our friend and a reminder to us all to be kind, considerate and compassionate—and to always root for the underdog :)

Please remember Tammy’s family in your prayers on May 18, her birthday. She would have been 47.

God bless them.
God bless you all.

.

“Texasflower helped make the AI threads so much fun. She always made me smile. FR will not be the same without her.” ~ Retrokitten

“I simply adored her ability to butt heads and loved reading her posts. She was always there with the perfect hug or hatpin, whichever she felt was most deserved.” ~ Doodlelady

“The sweetest, funniest, kindest poster on the AI threads where I had the honor of ‘meeting’ her.” ~ Jrabbit

“Texasflower was an integral part of our ‘American Idol’ gang. She was always sweet and upbeat and kind to all.” ~ Palladin

“In the beginning of November I was thinking about her because the town I work in was having their elections and it reminded me about her Dad going to vote in the ambulance … I loved her and miss her.” ~ No More Apples

“She was unfailingly polite, and more than that. Kind, thoughtful, patriotic, encouraging. A blessing. She was one of my most favorite FReepers, and I do not say that very often. She was exceptional.”

“We never truly know how deeply our lives touch others. I certainly never communicated fully to Tammy how much her posts lifted me up, and I regret that. I assumed she would continue to be there and I would be able to keep responding to her appreciatively.

“We will know in heaven the effect of our lives, when everyone gathers around the Lamb's throne and all our hearts are open and all our secrets known, and we have till forever to tell one another how God blessed us through each other …” ~ GretchenM

Folks, just a reminder that I'll be out of town next week (final 3), so tomorrow night's show will probably be my last real review of the season.

Priscilla and Lisa Marie Presley arrive to meet the Idols.

"Oh my gosh! I've been a fan of the show since ... its invention. It's fun for Lisa and I to watch it," Priscilla Presley told The Commercial Appeal Saturday afternoon.

She and her daughter had lunch with the contestants earlier in the day.

"I think it's a great thing. I love the fact that these are people from all over the United States who probably would never have had the opportunity to be in this position," she said.

"They are very talented kids. And their attitudes are just great. Even though it's such a huge competition, the camaraderie between all of them is really inspiring. They root for each other."

Calling Elvis "the first Idol," she said the show's presence at rock legend's home was quite appropriate.

"But Elvis, too, had to audition," she said. "He was laughed at. He was basically booed off stage. He had to struggle with the fact that he came from very humble beginnings and didn't have opportunities to have others experience his talent."

I don't watch, except when Taylor and Chris are on and I told my wife Taylor let "them" change him too much. Taylor needs to get back to being Taylor Hicks and he'll definately be a contender.

Out of all of them, Taylor and Chris are real...I haven't seen enough of Katharine or Elliot to know.

What am I doing? I don't even watch reality shows and think they're stupid, and here I am commenting on one!! HELP!

IMO, they're all real. This is the most talented final four (and final five) that Idol has ever had. That doesn't mean they're always perfect--McPhee was terrible last week and Chris nearly screamed his voice away--but they all have genuinely good voices.

'American Idol' finalists visit Graceland

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Calling Elvis Presley America's "first idol," Priscilla and Lisa Marie Presley welcomed the finalists of "American Idol" to Graceland amid cameras and screaming fans.

The Presleys and the finalists were at the rock legend's home Saturday to shoot the TV show's next installment with an Elvis theme and a critique by music producer Tommy Mottola. The show will air Tuesday.

Priscilla Presley said the show's presence at Graceland was appropriate because her late ex-husband shared many of the "Idol" contestants' experiences.

"Elvis, too, had to audition," she said. "He was laughed at. He was basically booed off stage. He had to struggle with the fact that he came from very humble beginnings and didn't have opportunities to have others experience his talent."

Contestants Chris Daughtry, Taylor Hicks, Katharine McPhee and Elliott Yamin waved and took pictures of the yelling crowd as their sport utility vehicle inched through the mansion's gate.

Nearly four years after its debut, "Idol" continues to rule the ratings. It has attracted 25 million to 33 million viewers each telecast this season. The winner will be crowned May 25.

Priscilla Presley, who with her daughter had lunch with the contestants, said she's been a fan of the show for years.

"I think it's a great thing. I love the fact that these are people from all over the United States who probably would never have had the opportunity to be in this position," she said.

Was there a reason why your 'kindness' couldn't have included a 'real' image of Covais? He's the only one from the top 12 that you left out and replaced with a cartoon.

Yeah, they can all sing...What I mean is paid music dues, been there done that, worked very hard, sincerely understands the soul of music.

Come'on you've got to admit Taylor is not going to be some "IDOL" star, especially if he truly gets back to what he's really all about. He's a musicians, musician, to really show his talent, Taylor has got to make the most of what's in him, not what AI wants to make of him.

It really doesn't matter, they're all basically "Idols" now...These four have made if they want it.

BTW, Great pics, thanks!

That's true of anyone. Though you're right he is a musicians musician, writes his own material, plays instruments.

This was the same concern some had last year with Carrie Underwood. She's clearly Country, but they thought she would be forced to sing pop songs on her Idol album. Instead, not only did she make a Country album, it became the fastest selling debut album in Country music history.

The Idol folks aren't stupid. If Taylor wins (and even if he doesn't, he'll still probably be signed by Idol) they won't push him to sing songs he can't sing.

I agree with you that Taylor just doesn't fit the image of "American Idol. This isn't a knock on his talent, it's just that I think, for example, Taylor would be a much better show in a venue with smoke in the rafters than a 15,000 seat convention center. He seems to be much more of a performer for an intimate setting, and that doesn't really mesh with what the folks at 19E are trying to sell.

Great point! He will do his genre and be popular in that market. I'm just referring to the show in general not what happens after, but you are certainly correct.

Carrie Underwood graduates from college

Underwood majored in mass communications with an emphasis in journalism and graduated magna cum laude. She was the last student today to receive a bachelor of arts degree and she received loud applause while doing so.

Not too shabby! Good for her.

My only question is....what the hell is this????

Is that Pricilla? Or Lisa Marie? Or some kind of animatronic robot humanoid like creature?

She hosted the CMT Video Awards nomination show, where she introduced the nominated videos all by herself-- just talking to the camera, and was a natural. She has real talent.

The amazing and fantastic thing about AI is that she wasn't discovered long before AI. I would assume that indicates she has a good set of priorities, to put most of the education ahead of seeking stardom, and not stop with the degree program when she achieved fame.

That's the nice thing about "America votes". All of those character and personality issues become part of the package.
