Phil should have gone home before Haley, Antonella or Stefanie


keep in mind, that we have music industry where a acts like Britney Spears, Pussy Cat Dolls and the like,
(that have very little singing ability at all). are what the public seems to reward and support.

I'm not sure what your point is. (And hey! You quoted my line that I edited out because it made no sense - no fair! )

I mean, yes, that's true. We all know that.

But it's nice to have an Idol top 4 who sing very well. And hey, Josh Groban sings very well, and he's very popular these days. So it's not just all image crap that sells and gets all the money.

While I think he definitely outstayed his welcome, he was worlds better than Antonella. I'd even say better than Haley too, because while her voice was pleasant enough, listening to her sing was like watching paint dry.

sorry for the "no fair"

I think the best thing AI does

is built in a fan base for who ever they choose.


But being an old timer

I just ask myself
how many of these people would have had a shot without this vehicle.

And sometimes I close my eyes and ask myself

"Is what I am hearing compelling enough to make me want to buy a recording?"

and also, I think all the britneys, and what that "no doubt" gal turned herself into
is taking legit music right down the drain

So, it looks like Bono is going to make every "goodbye" montage from here on out!

Definitely some "brokeback" action going on between Blake and Chris.

Not surprised about Phil. He seems like a stand-up guy. I hope he does well.

But most importantly..... How hot was Jon Bon Jovi tonight???



Best AI week yet!

I don't disagree
if you are talking about singing ability

I am just saying what they package and market in the "music industry" these days

great singers that don't look (right)
should be back-up singers (think Dreamgirls) and Melinda

I look at singers like Jordin and Melinda who have really great talent, and I think they would have a shot without the show. The problem is getting your foot in the door. There are TONS and TONS of musicians out there who are talented and creative and have the drive. But they flounder in obscurity.

So yeah, sometimes the show gets it right. It gives someone a boost to get in the door. Sometimes they're singers who should have made it without the show, sometimes they're the fluff singers who are pretty flimsy. But, as you said, that's the way of the world right now. It's not going to go away. Fluff artists have been around from the start of this whole thing. It's pop music.

... and Melinda? They should be a back-up singers and ... a back-up singer?

But I think I see what you're saying about Phil - that based on what passes as marketable and "good" these days is all about the image, so therefore Phil should have been booted first?

In that case, thank goodness some voters get it right! If that's all people cared about, Antonella and Haley would be the top two. Horrors.

We all know Sheryl Crow did some back up.

I think Sinead O Connor did too.

Being a backup singer is a great place to be to get a shot/

Melinda and that guy back up singer that got cut
in a way, are getting second shots.
me thinks.

Gotcha.

I'd forgotten about Brandon. I'd also forgotten about Stephanie until you mentioned her earlier.

i like Lakisha, and i hope she's in at least the top 2 (i'd say Melinda is a near lock at this point), but that's because she almost moved me to tears months ago when she did "and i am telling you i'm not going."

but then, as a gay man, i think it states in my contract that i must love big, busty african-american women who sing like a thunderstorm.

Just watched the show on my TiVo. I know two had to go, abd was thinking the 2 voted off would be. But still... I had to shed a tear or two for Phil. He's a good guy - all heart, and liked how he went out to the audience/friends/family

Phil & Chris

It seemed like no one was surprised that they were staying or going (referring to the contestants). Wonder if they knew or had a clue.

And Bon Jovi were alright too
