Well, it's that time of year again -- the chaos that is American Idol. Last night's show was a bit too much for me, I'd rather have seen a FEW more good auditions. They seem to focus too much on the terrible auditions, it gets old after a while. But damn, Simon has been BRUTAL so far. He's always mean, but this year he seems worse than ever. I couldn't believe it when he actually told that one dude to shave his beard and become a woman...that's just cold IMO. Not cool.

Anyways, I liked that Paris Hilton tanning girl -- the one where Simon asked her about her tan and she responded "my name is so-and-so..,"

Simon responds "Yeah but what about your tan?"
"Hee-hee...well I'm from..."
Simon: "Your tan?"
"Uhh...I'm gonna sing..."

That was probably the funniest part of the show :giggle:

The problem with AI is that we have seen so much of it before. I mean bad singers are funny to an extent but they have to be so monumentally bad to be new and interesting now. Someone would need to slug Simon a la Jerry Springer to be interesting.

What I don't understand is why, unless you were *really* good, would you go through the days of waiting and standing in line for two minutes that will most likely not be on TV? They said there were over 10,000 people who auditioned in Chicago yesterday. How many did we actually see on TV? Less than 100.

See now doesn't that depend on how slave-like her contract was up to this point with AI ??
We don't know that, but I'd bet a safe amount of money they squeezed her records for all they were worth and maybe now she gets a chance to squeeze back and they didn't like it ??

Anything you ever hear or see from her she doesn't seem like the ungrateful diva type :noclue:

well she got out of her contract.. because of the money they were taking.. but she signed the cotnract to begin with when she joined the show.. if you want to get your chance at fame that way..suck it up..
she got out of it... fired the dude.. and got a new producer or whatever.. and has done great since also...
she has no ties with them in that sense anymore.. but then to say FU to all the viewers who voted for ya.. and say..you wont hear my songs..since it really is for the viewers.. i think is not good.

I have heard that Fantasia is the Nicest idol and only one that hasnt changed... i hate her singing but.. at least she seems like a good person

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Figured I'd bump this since now it's down to the final 24, first four audience cuts this week.

I wonder if Idol will beat the Olympics in the ratings :lol: Probably, the Olympics will concede the 8-10 hours by having the first figure skaters, speed skaters and the bobsled competition and save the highlight skaters for the 10-12 slot :P

The Tivo is taking Idol so I am watching the Olympics. They are showing our second ranked skater now. I don't think NBC is going to concede two hours. It can't.

EDIT: And that is what they did. They showed the early part of the figure skating between 8 and 8:30ish and then nothing until now. NBC knows they cannot compete with American Idol.

AMERICAN IDOL DRINKING GAME

Take 1 shot for every time Randy says:
- "dawg" or "dawg pound"
- "it was just aiight for me"
- "pitchy" (this goes for Paula and Simon too)
- "you worked it out" (obviously, take an extra shot if he appends "dawg" to that)

Take 1 shot for every time Paula sounds like she's either drunk or on drugs. Take an extra shot if she looks heavily Botoxed as well.

Take 1 shot whenever Paula and Simon are diametrically opposed on a contestant's performance.

Take 1 shot for every time Simon gets yelled at by a contestant or booed by the audience.

Take 1 shot for every time Simon makes a disparaging remark about Ryan's sexuality.

Finish off your drink at the end of the show when Ryan says, "Seacrest, OUT!"

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Any other rules?

Yeah plus that's what NBC (and every other network) does anyway, keeps drawing it out, drawing it out so you watch the whole damn show, ignoring that people can lose interest the later you start the main part of your program and want to go to bed :rant: And Cohen was the last skater to go in the competition so it's not like they weren't gonna save that one. I think the top speedskaters were also among the last to go in that competition.

EDIT: Now that I've seen the tape and what they actually had on, I'd hardly call showing the 1500 m 'showing nothing', that was a big deal with this whole Davis/Hedrick thing. I'm surprised they showed the finish at 9-9:30, I thought they'd draw that out too :P

Back to Idol, I did watch that since I figured correctly there'd be next to nothing to watch between 8-10 on NBC, eh like half the singers were boring-okay and half were good. Maybe one or two really sucked (Becky, who the judges were surprisingly lenient with, compared to a couple others). I don't understand how Paris can have such a good signing voice and such a god-awful talking voice :P

Being the last person competing only matters if the event is shown live. When you are showing the whole thing on tape you can put them in any order you want.

For me, I was more interested in watching Sledding and Speed Skating than the figure skating anyway unless I had heard earlier in the day that someone had a massive fall or something which I didn't.

I have not watched a minute of this show this season. So based on the mugs on their website I shall put my support behind Becky O'Donohue.

Please don't tell me she's been ousted already, although I'll probably be told she's the worst of the bunch! :P

Now that I have watched AI, a few comments. They were lenient with Becky because she is hot. Otherwise she would probably not even be this far. The problem I had with last night is that so many people sang simillar bubble gum pop songs. I know that is what AI is ultimately about but at this stage you need to stand out from the field and you can't really do that if you sing the same song as everyone else. Paris was great, Lisa something was good and the last girl that went was pretty good too. Otherwise it was just a lot of the same thing and that is not a positive.

I swear, I couldn't tell 95% of them apart -- they all sounded, looked, and dressed alike. The only performance I *really* liked was that one really young black girl with the shorter hair. The other young black girl was good too, but I didn't think she sounded as amazing as the judges made her out to be.

That opera-type girl Stevie was God awful. She better get the boot.
