I have been rooting against Scott for weeks now. Although, I'll admit hes been getting better. Bo is still my favorite. It seems Randy has taken a liking to him.

I seem to have an excuse every week for not watching the results show, so I'm going to ask again this week.

Who was voted off today?

I have to ask. I tried to watch American Idol this week. I was, once again, unimpressed. Too many people who sing flat when they only have to sing one song. That's crazy. If you want to be able to sing concerts on your own then you need to be able to handle two minutes on pitch. But that isn't the point.

Tonight, when Constantine was voted off the island, Paule cried. Hard. What is the deal with that? I didn't realize the "objective" judges were supposed to be emotionally invested in particular contestants.

Once again, I have been turned off to this show. Maybe I will give it a one week shot again next season, but only if they get rid of Paula and Randy and perhaps try a couple of judges who won't just tell every single contestant they are awesome and actually try, what's it calle?, judging.

Well, well, I am glad you mentioned it. It was a bit weird, and not good timing. And then she was all over his mom. The show is on the hot seat for paula having an alleged affair with a contestant(a couple years ago?) and the voting being skewed.
I will see if I can find a link.

edit, my post is in response to p-shore

Holy crap. I didn't know the devil existed, but I can't deny it now because Scott is clearly in league with him. How could he not be in the bottom three?

I was surprised that Constantine was voted off just because I thought he had the teenage girl vote going for him. But his song was pretty awful last night. Sounded better tonight though. Funny what no pressure can do to you.

I guess now Bo is probably in an even better position, since there's no one to split the rocker vote. He and the Russian kid will probably split Constantine's demographic, based upon whether people were voting for him based on the music or the cuteness.

Anyway, I am once again completely stumped by Scott's bulletproof arse. Really, what's the deal here? That white trash everyman appeal can only take you so far. There's got to be some kind of supernatural involvement at this point.

Seriously, Scott has been doing soooo badly the past few weeks!
Ever since he stopped singing what he was actually good at (motown type stuff)
He really should have gone home instead of Con!!! [Roll Eyes]
People voting are goofy.

Well, that was worth watching. Lordy me, Constantine?!

He sounded much better tonight. There aren't very many of the songs that have been sung this season I would love to have in a studio cut. Two of them, though, are Constantines. I loved his Bohemian Rhapsody, and *embarrassed*...but his David Cassidy song too. It grew on me.

As of next week, I start voting.

I loved that one! That was the night I fell in love with him! [Wink]

Sadly, I can't vote because my phone is weird and doesn't call certain numbers. Also because Tuesday nights are busy and I only get to see the show if I remember to tape it.

I'm sad to see Constantine go. Scott better leave soon or I think there will be an uprising.

Well, last night the American people proved what I have been saying for years: they are smarter than the main stream media gives them credit for. Though I am ready to see Scott go, watching Constantine get the boot was gratifying.

Uh oh, a major chink in Bo's armor just popped up.
quote:
A typical day in the life of a Fox intern: make coffee, make copies, conduct background checks on American Idol contestants, call down to the deli for lunch...

ADVERTISEMENT




At least, we're assuming it must be the interns who screen Idol wannabes for potential criminal records--otherwise, how to explain all the contestants with skeletons in the closet who somehow slip through the cracks?

Long-haired crooner Bo Bice is the latest Idol contestant to fall prey to the skills of the super sleuths at the Smoking Gun Website, who unearthed Bice's arrest records for felony cocaine possession back in 2001 and marijuana possession in 2003.

In fairness to Fox's background checking department, we were only kidding about the whole intern thing. The network claims it knew all about Bice's drug busts ahead of time and that it doesn't care. (We paraphrase.)

linky

Well then again he is a rocker...

The only reason Bo wasn't removed from the competition as others were, is becasue he notified the people at fox of his criminal record. This was jsut after he made it through the first round. I know that link is somewhere around here....

Finally. It's ironic, though. Last night was his only halfway decent performance of the season. Not that anyone else deserved the boot more than him anyway, but it's funny that he would keep going after all those crappy showings and then get kicked off after last night.

I was kind of hoping it would come down to him and Anthony in the final round, just to make it absolutely clear what a joke the show is. I guess that dream's done.

But anyway, hooray. *happy dance*

Nah, it should have been Anthony. But you know what? I bet Vonzell is voted off next week. America loves it some Anthony.

It'll be interesting to see next week. Vonzell has gotten better. At this point I can't dislike any of them, but it would just be wrong if Bo and Carrie aren't the top two.

I don;t know...a couple of Vonzell's songs were wonderful too,, and she has really impressed me, a lot more than Carrie has done the last few weeks.

Then again, I didn't see this weeks show at all.

Scott kept his place the week before because of the underdog appeal when Simon said "Pack your bags." At least that is what we think at our house. Then he experienced the whiplash. I was still a little suprised, because he really did play up the underdog card on tuesday when he sang "On Broadway" and pointed at Simon.

Anyway, I'm hoping for Anthony to be gone. Much better singers and performers have been voted out than he is.

Well, Scott being gone makes me happy!
Last week was not a good week for me, TV-wise. First Constantine goes (he wasn't the best but I adored him) then my really guilty pleasure America's Next Top Model gives my favourite one the boot! Poor Michelle!!

Scott stinks! Yay!

Justcice, finally. i really thought it was going to be Vonzell, not because she deserved it, but because Anthony seems to get so many breaks.

I have decided I want Vonzell to win, because Bo will be happy and famous no matter what at this point.

For some weird reason, Vonzell reminded me of Evangeline Lilly tonight.

And what was with Bo Bice and the cross tonight? For those on the west coast, watch the song he sings without the band and the couple of shot right at the end of the song. Isn't that weird? Sub-conscious, or did they do it on purpose?

I hated the song Randy Jackson picked out for her. Yes, it's country, but pit her up against Shania? Sorry, it was sandbagging. Shania has a very different, distinctive lower range voice. Plus, the beginning of "I Feel Like A Woman" is hardly worth listening to even when Shania does it. It sounded terrible with Carrie, just barely eaking out the bottom of her range.

I'd have picked out classic Heart for her. One of the 70's albums. Magic Man, or Steamboat Annie.

Based on tonight, though, Bo should win. That acapella song was incredible. He did the Elton John song beautifully. Paula should be ashamed of making him sing the Rolling Stones, though. It was forgetable.

The only one of Vonzell's I really liked was the one Simon picked out for her. I like On the Radio anyway, but she really kicked it. It was excellent.

As for her being upset last Tuesday (I didn't know that), but it might have been because she had to work on Saturday. A friend of mine is a Postmaster...he said that they couldn't find a sub for her route, so she had to work. [Smile]

Speed, there wasn;t really a theme, unless judges picking is a theme.
Three songs. One, they picked their own.
One, the regular judges picked.
One, the dude who markets musicians picked. (forget his name)

Bo did really, really well. I actually had chills when he sang hs first song. He sang a capella for his second, and brought the house down, and Paula picked "I Can't Get No Satisfaction" for him, which was the weakest of the three.
