American Idol ping! This ping list is assembled (mostly) from names found on other AI related threads. If you would like your name added or subtracted from this list, please Freepmail me and I will abide by your wishes. Next ping will be tonight, between 7:30pm and 8:00pm EST. Enjoy the show!
Thanks jonny...you did a geat job setting this up....this shuld be fun,.
Add me to ping list : )) I like watching this show with my family.
So what happened to Mario Vasquez?
Contract conflicts I heard. He doesn't want to be locked into a repressive AI contract.
They'd be better off signing a 1960's Berry Gordy Motown contract.
:) So very cool of you to do this. Thanks for the ping. And being a roll tider all I have to say is "Go Bo!"
This is great jonny! I keep forgetting some of the names. I heard on Fox that Mario's mother was quoted as saying she didn't know of any family problems and didn't know why Mario quit. Odd.
Bo and Anwar are way ahead of all the others. It should be a two-man race, unless somebody stumbles.
See post #7. I think that's the actual reason too. He has to have a contract already waiting. I hate to see that Anwar sang at Clinton's inauguration. :( I like him. Hope this is not an indication of politics, but more a way to get recognized. If it is politics I hope he listens to Laura Ingraham..."Shut up and sing."
AH, that makes sense, contract problem. I like Bo anyway. I like Constantine too but I don't think his voice is as strong.
Mario was real good. He was "discovered" already and decided to forgo the final portion of his Idol career.
I dont blame him leaving.
Add me please!
Uh oh, it looks like she's wearing a lavaliere. Too bad boys, she's taken.
Speaking of leaving, I think Mikalah is the next one to go. Can't remember how many leave per week after the final 12 but my money says she should go next. Constantine after then.
As in leave on her own or get kicked off? Mikalah is getting annoying to me...if she just shuts up and remains calm, she is fine but her little "perky" personality is starting to get on my nerves...
Hey, cool. thanks for the ping! What fun!
Personally, I am pulling for Carrie Underwood. I love her voice and stage presence. Also, she has a perfect name for country music.
It's a great field of talent this time around.
Bo is my husband's favorite too! He also likes the "rocker" Constantine. I don't think that Constantine is as good as Bo.
