Nothing absurd about it.
Nope, never said that. I'm just a retiree who happens to like AI.
I must be because I REALLY thought so.
Well it's good to have a controversial performer like Paul, makes for interesting perspectives.
Still for me, this is Glee year. Our rock guy James doesn't do much for me. The "cute" girl I usually gravitate to is Haley and she's just ok for me, dog. She's kind of cloying and ingratiating.
The obvious leaders are Pia and Lauren who are so comfortable and slick and stultifyingly safe it's enough to glaze your eyes over. They just come off as pros singing cover songs, zero excitement like you'd get from a raw amateur becoming a polished diamond before your eyes. There was actually way more of that last year.
No Daughtrys or Adam Lamberts (and sadly no Siobhans) this year.
I agree, but in all cases where you say "Lauren" I substitute it with Haley. She IMHO is much more talented than Lauren.
Hey Paul, the Marty Robbins museum called. They want his suit back!
LOL, that's one ugly coat! :lol:
Are they at the point where they get into Fox's wardrobe or are given a clothing allowance?
Somewhere a cheap motel is missing its drapes.
Thing is, Lauren is no wonder, but she drops right intro country-pop like a square peg in a square hole. Perfect fit. Whereas Haley, I don't know, she's neither Britney nor Katy nor Gaga nor Ke$ha. I don't know how she sells records or who to.
Not to mention dirty sheets.
Just singing the way I like it is enough for me.
It can be Country or Rock or Classical - doesn't matter. I happen to like Haley's singing (voice and style) more than Lauren's. I give both girls an 'A' for voice quality and Haley an extra "+" for eliciting an emotion from me (something akin to goose-bumps). Lauren has yet to do this.
The age diiference betwen the two girls (4 years) is probably the reason Haley is more enjoyable to look at and hear than Lauren. IMHO Haley gives off more sex appeal, more confidence of movement, and just plain stage presence.
Which one will thrive in the business?
Both, more than likely.
Whos recordings will I most likely buy?
But don't get me wrong. I don't have blinders on. In a year that has had more talent in one season than probably ever before, one is almost guaranteed a frustrating dissapointment every Thursday night. Every week a good, talented guy or gal will bow goodbye. One's likes and dislikes will have to go with the flow and to whom you considered inferior just a day before. So who knows ... I might end up rooting for Lauren as well as you might be for Haley.
Definitely, the best usually DON'T win. The hitmakers are usually found in the #2-5 range. Didn't Pickler get booted out before the final 3?
Yep. I don't like that it quickly turns into a popularity contest. It's been my beef that the judges' opinion should be given a percentage every week (ala DWTS) and added to the contestants' score. But, that makes sense, so I guess we'll never see it.
Pickler was voted off during the Top 6 (Love Song Week), Season 5. She was a ditz, but one of my favorites.
Ya. Pickler was a hoot, though not the greatest singer. Remember when she first tried calamari? :lol:
To Maruuk's point, Chris Daughtry is a good example of someone who got booted relatively early (final four) who went on to do well. I'll never forget the look on the judges' faces when Daughtry got eliminated before McPhee, Hicks and Yamin that year.
American Idol alumni album sales: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Idol_alumni_album_sales
Interesting data. Looks like Kelly Clarkson is the only one on the list who had a subsequent album sell more than the prior album. IOW, all declining in popularity. Minor exceptions are Hicks and Yamin, but sales too low to be significant, IMO.
Poor Kris Allen.... :nono2:
How about Lee DeWyze & his 133,000 in sales? :lol::lol:
Ouch!!!! I blinked and missed that! :lol:
Yeah. Guess their popularity wears like curiosity. :eek2:
She was a pickle, alright. Laughed very hard when that happened. I don't know (don't really care) if it was an act. She must have gotten some pointers from Goldie if it was.
The only contestant I've ever rooted for other than the singing.
