But what is "fizzlegate"? Is it just that he sort of fizzled out or was it an actual incident?

I'm so out of the AI loop .

In an article in the music magazine called Relix, Taylor mentioned that AI was basically fizzling out for him and he wouldn't watch next season. He came across as very dismissive and ungrateful, like he was above AI (even though it gave him a huge platform to get noticed), and that he was a true musician, blah, blah, pretentious cakes. He later backpedaled on one of the morning news shows that he was actually trying to make way for the next season's winner. Sadly, it didn't come across that way in the article, and Taylor's explanation was pure spin control.

Charles aka Apollo Creed: He sings REO in Italian.
That's what I thought he said, too. But then he started singing, and I said, "Oh! He sings ARIA in Italian!" Yeah, opera always gets you far on Idol.

And "Screech McPhee"? Golightly Girl, you are so on my list.

Oops, I think you're right. He did sing an aria in Italian. My bad.

And I guess we're going to have to disagree on Kat. I like her when she's more subtle, but when she goes for the Mariah Carey like melisma, she totally loses me.

Gosh ... upon further reflection, I have to admit you're right!

I'll probably end up buying her album when it comes out. She had such shiny hair.

Considering they only let through 17 out of however many thousand, they were probably desperate for people to let through.

You could see they liked her from the start even before she sang. I could tell exactly what they were thinking though. The truth is it isn't all about the best voice. It's a big part of it, and she didn't have the worst voice. But she had a look they liked and with a decent voice in this competition, that can go somewhere.

I don't like Shakira's voice so I wasn't amused.

edit: My sister tried out. She graduated college with a vocal performance degree and really wanted to try. To get to what you see on tv, you have a prelim audition. They take like 10 people and you sing all together. The "judges", not the 3 big judges, just some peeps for the show, then pick who they liked, and say, "you 4 go ahead on, the rest of you, thank you, but you do not move on." That's where my sister got cut.
