Diana is the better singer of the two left

but thats my point of view

Fantasia's a bit more nasally, and the watchers here in Australia just felt like 'oh, some black girl is going to win - boring'

but thats taking nothing away from fantasia, both are very fine singers

how come the judges couldnt pull out another Paul Hewson in America? a vast landscape like America, yet no white guy can sing!

For shame!

mind you the craze in music at the moment is that everyone wants to be the next Creed or Nickelback, so Idol shows are probably not their thing

oh speaking of Idol Shows Australian Idol is starting here soon

i have a friend who's lining up for that, hes a good singer (in a heavier (nickelback, creed stuff) because thats the stuff our youth like ) but hes doing it in jest, if he gets anywhere in the competition like the point where contracts have to be signed, he will bail

i myself am not game, because i might drown myself in the mediocrity pool, or even worse, end up on the blooper reel, which is something that will scar me for life, and my (unborn) children's life. even though i practice heaps!

Yeah. Unfortunately for those who aim to be like those bands, I'm not a Creed or Nickelback fan, so...bah. I want some bands to start a new wave revival or something like that. That'd be awesome.

Oh, yeah? Hmm. Well, even though he's planning on bailing if it gets to that point, I wish him luck anyway. .

Haha, agreed. I'll just watch others goof it up on TV, no need for me to add to the horror. .

Speaking of blooper reels by the way...don't know if anyone else caught the "American Idol" special that was on Sunday night-it was just talking about why this show is so popular, and there was this one guy who they showed auditioning for the show, and while he was singing (forget what song it was right now that he performed), he pretended like he was in the midst of a war zone. So you'd hear a few lines of the song, and then him pretending to fire at somebody, then more singing, more pretend shooting, and then finally he pretended to be injured and was dragged out of the room. I was like, "What...the...hell...?" Very, very odd.

I think Fantasia was awesome. Which is a first for me. She is going to win it without a doubt.

Agreed-I really hate that song.

Personally, I thought Diana did really well tonight-well, except for her last song. There were times during two of Fantasia's songs when she seemed a little off to me or something-she sounded a little more nervous, and I think that affected her singing a little more, whereas Diana sounded better during her first two songs.

Yay, Fantasia!!

Fantasia seems so natural...Diana seems so forced and fake and cheesy. I can't stand her performances.
