Hey ya'll! Okay, first off I'm a total dork. So if none of you watch American Idol, refrain from reading this.

I love the show so much, I love it! I hope some of you do, too. ANyway, if you do, who's your favorite this year? This week?

Mine's gotta be GEORGE!!!! I love him to death. He's my Georgie; that sweet smile, cute little attitude, and sexy and addictive voice. Yumm, yumm, yummmmm! I also like LaToya, Jasmine, and Diana. If any of you love the show, I'll gladly get more into detail with the "contestants." like my George, or how much Johnny boy's gotta go. And what's up with the whole thing about Simon and Paula, did you see that kiss?!?!

Anyway, holla back if you've got comments and are a nerd like me. If not, well, adios. Peace out.

Even though I don't think that she's going to finish at the top of the heap, I like the girl with the red hair. She actually reminds me a little of Sharon Osbourne... not just the hair, but her attitude, her spunk, the energy she puts out... everything.

Ahh, so you're goin' with Amy. Well, she's alright. As long as you're not rootin' for John(red-head) or Camille, you're a'ight in my book. GEORGE!!!! I love ya, babe!!

You should really watch it more often, I love it! Fantasia's still in, and I bet she'll be there for awhile. In case you were wondering, last week the football jock was given the boot. And my Georgie's still there!!!
So, basically so far the poeple that were voted off desreved it, but now there's really no one else I want gone! Watch it this Tuesday night!!!

It's actually on a Sunday night here in Australia, and yes I missed it last night... we had visitors so....shrug....but don't fear I'll catch up.

This is the first season that I've watched it -- I really didn't/don't care for the whole auditioning process -- I know they have to audition people -- but to put the really bad ones on air so the world can laugh at them just seems cruel.

Now that we're into the actual talented people (well some of them anyway) it's more interesting and actually has the adrenaline rush of working in the business.  I know that it was a real thrill to watch Amy break out this past week with the Dixie Chix's 'Sin Wagon' -- I agree with Randy and Paula -- that's her genre and she could do quite well with it if she chose.

I don't know if he'll win or not -- it is a popularity contest at this point -- but I think Huff is quite good as well loner.. but.. LaToya is the real pro in the bunch.

I definitly agree with you, rebel. LaToya's one of my favorites with George. And I like Dianna, as well. These three can really sing, all twlve of them can. But, for some reason I just don't like Amy much, though last week she probably had the best performance.
Maree, who's your fave?
Go George!!!

I agree that Amy had the best performance -- and that like you -- I didn't care for her a whole lot up until that time -- I liked her as a person -- but-- not her style so much.

That's why I think it is a rush to see someone turn in a stellar performance like that.  

I know that when I got off the stage and started producing I found it much more gratifying to see people I was coaching do well than it was to receive a round of applause for something I did myself...

anyway...

may the best win.. but I think a lot of them already have

I really love it when a performer has this huge vocal ability, hides it for a while, and then unleashes it and leaves everyone stunned. I felt like that with Amy last week, of course, but also LaToya the week before. She just blew everyone away.
Local rebel; were you a performer before? if you were, that's really cool.

Anyway, I agree that they're all already winners just for making it as far as they have. Is there anyone that just has to go, do you think? there's really no one left that I truly dis-like, just John the Red-head.(he's too Sinatra for me)

Well, adios, for now.

I'd have to say that after tonite you'll probably get your wish -- John will be gone.

Fantasia was the breakout tonite though -- she was superb.  Huff was made for Motown.. and LaToya was pretty -- I don't care what Randy or Simon said -- and she was good... but Fantasia just pushed it a little bit harder and was a pro all the way through.

(and I haven't been a performer since about 1986)

caught the end...before being bored to death last night

Amy did, but I was surprised there wasn't one of the guys in the bottom 3... Jennifer and La Toya were the other two..something is wrong with the American public not voting  the "crooner" in the bottom, if it is based on how they do that night..he was awful...
(my opinion only and I am not sure he can put any oomph into any song other than a ballad)

Last night's show and vote were a complete sham. I'm not very often given to flights of extreme anger, however when John DIDN'T make the bottom 3, I was steamed... to say the least... I actually don't think any of the girls that were there should have been there, and Joh, himself, knew tht itwas a screw up. Did you see the way they kept flashing to him, and that pained look on his face?
Anyways... Amy is gone, and I have to say that Fantasia will probably be the one left standing at the top of the heap.

Hey everyone, thanks for the run-down. I don't think Amy should be gone now, nor do I think Jennifer or LaToya deserved to be in the bottom three. I'd have to agree that Johnny boy's gotta go, he should have been in the bottom three. And I don't like Camille much either, I don't think she's good enough to still be there. And for the third who really should have been bottom 3, Jon Peter Lewis. I don't think he's got any talent. I mean, he's got an okay voice, which has pontential to be great, but the main reason why he's still there is cause the crazy girls of America have fallen in love with him!(I haven't yet, though I sorta have with my Georgie;})

Anyway, enough of my blabbing. To sum it up, I think eith LaToya or Diana will be crowned AI winner(atleast because of their pipes) Though I do wish my George could, although it is a long-shot. All I know is if he doesn't, I'll buy the AI seson 3 c.d.!

Even if George doesn't win..he will have a future and probably get a record deal..he has a terrific voice and I just heard on the radio today a new song by Kimberleigh who was 2nd runner-up last year...so it seems  she attracted enough attention to get her start.

I have to say that I hope my Georgie does get a record deal, if he doesn't win this thing. But, with the way that the public is treating these AI losers(like Aiken, Locke, and ,um, William Hung...)he actually deserves it. And I'm not saying that I don't like Clay, or Kimberly for that matter. Just look at Hung, he has a record deal and he sucks major ass! George Huff is the real deal. He deserves it.

Hung is just getting his 15 minutes of fame...and I guess doesn't realize people are actually laughing at him....

He can't improve, he doesn't have the talent.

Couldn't of said that better myself. In fact, yesterday I saw part of an interview with William Hung on the tv guide channel. He was telling them why he thought he could actually win the AI contest, and how when he started to sing the crowd just "went crazy." And I couldn't help but laugh! I wonder who will actually buy his record. If you want some really good listening, search for Ben Harper. The general public doesn't know good music and true talent when they hear it, Hung has none. But people like George Huff and Ben Harper certainly do.

Aww, I missed it last night!!!! So I gotta watch the re-cap tonight! Everyone is saying that Fantasia was sooo good last night, the one time that I miss it...But, people also say that it wasn't George's night, so maybe I missed it for the better. hehe

Personally I think John Stevens should have been gone LONGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG ago ... maybe he'll gone next week lol

and loner... it isn't that George was "bad" he was just a little "off" I see him making the top 5 at least, maybe even the top 3 ... his personality is the reason I like him (not that he can't sing, he can) but I still have to go with Fantasia all the way "shumfin" HEHEHE

I don't really like Fantasia... I find her annoying, and her personality rubs me the wrong way.  

John Stevens has a lot of potential, but right now it seems like he's very, very confused.  I'd have to say most people who like him, like him because of what he's doing rather than how he's doing it... he could use a little work.  But the John-haters will always outnumber the John-lovers who always vote for him regardless of how his performance is.  

Personally, though, I think he did a fantastic job last week, having gone back to his roots.

Overall I'm a George Huff fan, he's been consistently good in this competition.
