I just saw that Constantine was once on an episode of "Elimidate".

Has anyone seen that? I'm curious.

(and hey, don't blame me for my poor tv habits--my satellite has been "down"--for like, two months!)

I don't watch Elimidate either.

But American Idol I find fascinating for some reason.

Most especially, the auditions. I suffer from stagefright, so I'm consistently amazed at the courage of these people.

I give them applause just for that.

It's the men this year!  There is really only one woman in my opinion, (Nadia) who has the whole package that could be marketable.  

Sea, I agree with you 100%, as to winner, and the runner up.  I never thought I would ever give a vote to a rocker on American Idol but I sure am, but for second place.  

The main thing I think we have to remember is who is doing the voting, and what might they might be thinking when they vote.  

I think they are all winners for having made it this far, it takes a dream, courage, and guts to follow it through, so it sounds flaky but they are all American Idols to me.

Uh....the news of all news...

My favorite, Mario, has dropped out from American Idol. Personal issues he says and they brought back Nikko.

Well I was really pleased with two things tonite -- first -- Bo came back and showed Constantine how to really do Blood Sweat and Tears, and second -- Vonzell brought it on! I think Cowell is going to go back and watch that again and take back what he said because I think she rose to the occasion -- or I rose to her occasion or something... It was warm.

Nadia was superb as always -- the four that I Tivo'd back to re-watch just because I enjoyed the performances were Bo, Nadia, Vonzell, and Scott...Why should anybody be embarassed about watching this program?  It's a good old fashioned talent contest -- and there's some actual talent this time.  If I was an A&R man at a label, with the slump the record industry has been in, I'd be sitting in the lobby trying to get at least six of these twelve signed right now, before the thing is over.

Ditto your choices tonight Local Rebel.  I have to tell you that Bo is starting to steal this old gal's heart.  He sure is the package complete for the men.  I am waiting for him to do something non-rock and see his range.  Vonzell to me is more versatile than Nadia, but what do I know, and I think she did a crackerjack job tonight and will do better in time as her confidence builds.  I think most of them were intimidated by their new surroundings, and next week will be better for them all. I listen to them sing 1/2 way with eyes shut, the other half open, great for picking up real pitch.  LOL, I need a life right?  I love this show.

Bo or Constantine... im just excited that there are some rock influences in the competition.  I don't think they have as much range as the others, but would make the best idol's out of the competition.

OMG !! They kept that Michaela person! Where's my medication?!!!
Five minutes in an elevator listening just to her speaking voice would do me in.
   Now, alone in an elevator with Bo or Anwar....that's a different story.

Constantine actually sang
"I think I love you"

which disqualifies him as a member
of the human race.

*grin*

I agree Chris, that chick has got ta go.

Well I think we're down to the point now where we see the downside of having a stage full of talent -- it's going to be like Sophie's choice from here on out (with maybe the one exception I won't name).

Bye Jessica you'll be missed...
