but so has Tay-Tay.....hopefully he’ll bounce back - and get some good song writers....

I'd heard that Taylor is suing for breach of contract. They hadn't represented or promoted him as they did past winners. I hope its true and that he wins. I tried a search and so far all that came up is the following, and the link led to an empty blog page.

Sanjaya just put me out...what a joke.

Hopefully this time around they will go for talent over a "look". Even the judges reached a point of frustration with the last bunch. Between Sanjaya & Skankarella I felt like giving up myself.

Hello to all the “oldtimers” and any “newtimers” on the AI threads.....and to all who think this is just plain a waste of time....yes it is —— so stay off these threads.....LOL.

LOL. You know they won't.

Hi, MG :)

How many times will Randy say the word dog this season.

Approximately 3,147,509 times. But that's a conservative estimate :)

Would you like to be added to the ping list? We'd be happy to have you.

They way the folks at Idol talk, they're going to change that this year. We'll see.

I will not buy the one from Blake ------ or Jordan (I heard it did not do well).

I won't either. I have no interest in hearing them sing again. Melinda Doolittle maybe, but she's the exception from last season.

police found a small amount of cocaine (less than 1 gram) in her purse.

I knew it! It's always cocaine.

On January 8, 2008, Sierra released her first EP on iTunes, as well as Amazon.com and Napster.

On January 9, 2008, Jessica Sierra was released from a jail

We're making do with 3 seasons of Lost and The Office and 10 years of Stargate SG-1. AI is just bonus.

Same here. The only show I miss because of the strike is 24. And since the quality of their new season was in question, maybe it's for the best that it's not on now. Strike away, writers! :)

I agree. I noticed during the sixth season, they either ignored Taylor or made snide remarks about him. Even Clive Davis appeared on the show praising Daughtry to the skies and dismissing Taylor and Katharine McPhee. All I can figure, either Taylor must've ticked them off somehow or else they just didn't want him to win because he wasn't as marketable. But they still should've represented and promoted him as they did other winners.

I think they liked his personality at first but never expected him to get far in the competition. They all seemed to be visibly unhappy as he advanced. Then when he pulled the real shocker off & actually won he probably didn’t make many friends by hiring an attorney to go over the contract & make changes. I think their ideal is someone who knows little about the business & will be easy to lead around. That wasn’t Taylor.

You have to throw in the comments about how Paula is a has-been who hasn't done anything in music since the 90s, how Randy is still fat and how Simon is British and doesn't know about American music.

Hi Jonny! Thanks for the ping. I’ll be able to visit more often this year since I’m not teaching on Teusday nights this year. But, I’ll join in after the show is over - my computer is no where near the TV. See you tonight.

Hi Jonny, sure go ahead and add me to the weekly reminder ping list.

Can't wait to see the people who sing worse than I do. And I'm the first to admit that I'm horrible.

See ya tonight! :)

They should market all winners with the same zeal. Let the consumer decided what they want to buy or hear. I have noticed that certain radio stations play a broad range of music and Taylor's music would certain fit in there just as easily as some of the other artists that they play.

Definately, but they should have learned after Kelly Clarkson, that not winners are going to be docile.

Of course, that's not to say the show will eschew mentors and celeb guests entirely. After all, part of the singers' "Idol" experience includes those brushes with superstars like Stevie Wonder or Jennifer Lopez.

Meant to comment on this earlier. I hope this doesn't mean we will be saddled with these two again.
