the whole show was so painful, i often had to MUTE the sound so my eardrums wouldn't shred :eek: is it me, or is the talent so far super-sucky this year? :confused: and why do they let such obvious losers go on and on and on wailing in front of the camera, why do they even get past the first level of the audition? i know it's for "tv drama" but it's really too much... used to be more balanced with GOOD stories. hmmm. :rolleyes:

OMG......The daughter really needed a bra!!!:eek: holy cow!!

Question? What's with parents today?
Why the heck aren't parents honest with there kids!!??
Not just that one, but look haw many of those kids who were bad singers, whose parents were there for support!!
Geez, couldn't they have told their kids they had no talent, instead of letting them make fools of themselves in front of the whole world!!!??

i've always wondered too. They DO get judged before they go on to Simon. WEird.

But well it's the media and they choose who is entertaining for the show, even if you're bad

I'll tell you where this comes from. This is a result of people LYING to their friends, family, and children. Perfect example..I have a friend who thinks he can dance is a$$ off...why does he think this? Because my other friends have been LYING to him for YEARS, telling him that he can dance! It's not right people! Don't do this to your friends! Be honest with them. Because when this dude gets up to dance, he looks like he's having a seizure. He makes the rest of the white boys look bad. It's terrible :eek: I get so embarrassed for him that I want to fade away into the couch when he does this. If I knew him "like that" I'd tell him..but he's more of an acquaintance and I don't want to hurt his feelings. He really thinks he can tear up the dance floor :shrug:

and what about that girl who looked sunburnt? with red nylon thingie on her ginormous flabby arms and bloated legs? why was she flapping them around like that, looked like blubber trying to take off? :confused: totally horrific and it made me nauseous, even before she opened her mouth. no, really, you have to ask...

"what were they thinking?" :eek:

Mahealani770
January 18th, 2007, 02:07 PM
And one more thing...these people really think they can sing! They can't hear how bad they are. It seems impossible that they themselves or their friends and/or family can't hear just how bad they are...but I think it has to do with my last post. Nobody wants to be honest and tell their loved ones that they shouldn't EVER sing in public. EVER.

The first 2 years it was funny. Now it's just annoying!

Mahealani770
January 18th, 2007, 02:11 PM
LMAO @ TD..omg..I think I peed a little bit on that one Techno. Before I run down the hall to the little girl's room...I'm with you on the blubber. I was yelling at the TV, "Stop waving your arms! Keep that stuff still!"
WTH was she thinking? Her ridiculously large legs with the little black pumps on her feet looked like 2 upside down pyramids trying to balance on their point. Come on!

Common now, you can't forget "rat boy" the guy with the pointy teeth in front and the big bulging eyes ("Unchained Melody"). He really did look like a rat. Scary. :eek:

Another fave was "The Hotness" as she referred to herself. Those lips and eyebrows. :yuck:

Mother and daughter cracked me up, how can two women look so awefully alike?

How the heck do they think their kids/friends feel now that they have made a total a$$ of themselves on national tv!!! They must be peeeeed, or at least loose trust no:shrug:
I don't know, but I grew up (and am trying to raise my son this way) to be honest. (except for santa:o )!! It can be done in a kind way.
I firmly believe that's why we have so many troubled youth today... their parents treat them like:king: :queen: and tell them the sun shines out their a$$, and they can do no wrong, then they enter the REAL world where their just another person.
Keep it real!!

Sorry for going off topic:o

This season looks pretty entertaining to say the least.
I liked the brother from the brother and sister that came together ( I forget their names, they looked of east indian decent). He was adorable and had a really nice voice.

I just love the ones that think they can sing and are horrible, like 'Red'.

They were saying today that the show has gotten exceptionally cruel... IMO, that's what the business is about. They're not playing it up for tv... I mean, maybe they are, but they're like that anyway, without trying..:D

There's a fine line between giving your kid false self esteem and taking all their self esteem away though...:o

January 18th, 2007, 10:07 PM
I thought the were way nicer than last season. I haven't heard Simon say "sweetheart" so many times EVER!

but some people really do ask for it. I mean come on....the red head guy??? LOL who is he kidding?

DO you guys remember that show a few years ago that was looking for the world's WORST singer?? and they were telling everybody that they were doing a spin off of AMerican Idol and they were lieing to them and the ppl chosen were all the worst singers?? :eek:

Seriously , I havent watched since Reuben and Clay... I really think they should just let the whole thing go.... I mean, really how many american/canadian idols are really heard of after the show:shrug: I think the american/canadian and all other idols, should just stop already. But thats my opinion.:shrug:

jiorji
January 18th, 2007, 10:24 PM
it's not about the idol, it's about giving someone (who otehrwise can't get an agent to get a career) a chance to be heard :)

Prin
January 18th, 2007, 10:27 PM
The first Idol was picked for the right reasons: looks :D Then people decided to get less shallow and pick the good singer, and look what happens? They don't buy their records and they fade away. Famous people are good looking for a reason...

It also helped that Kelly fired the Idol agents and found her own...;)

jiorji
January 18th, 2007, 10:31 PM
yeah but Kelly was the first and she's not "hollywood pretty" so i disagree :cool:

and she wouldn't have gotten a chance had Idol not started.

Prin
January 18th, 2007, 10:32 PM
Not hollywood pretty but way prettier than any subsequent finalists... Her and Justin, Ruben and Clay... Dramatic difference... :shrug:

technodoll
January 18th, 2007, 10:44 PM
Clay is actually everywhere :D working hard on his career and making a name for himself. i guess ruben didn't have the same drive :shrug: apparently fantasia does alot of MTV stuff... they're more popular in the states than anywhere else.. except for kelly and clay of course :)

I must admit,I have all of Clay Aikens Cd's...LOVE his voice!
Judging by the new AI,Seattle must have a awful lot of weird,ugly people:D see why I love animals!!
Seriously though,this is all for showbusiness,people like to see this sort of thing(not me!)I guess it makes for a good laugh.
I watch AI once they are down to about 30 people and to be honest with you,I actually like Simon:yell: after all he brought us Il Divo:lovestruck:

The Idols who end up with a successful career are the ones who produce music for their first album that is popular at the time. The ones who don't are the ones who choose to sing something that people are not interested in. They may have a career but never get close to global success. Kelly fit right in to the norm.
These people may win because we like their voice but if we don't like their music it doesn't matter how good their voice is.

I just wish there was a Canadian Amazing Race...:fingerscr

No Canadian TV could afford the Amazing Race,not a world-wide race anyway,most Canadian anything is done on the cheap,unfortunately:mad:
Amazing Race is definetly my favourite,anybody know when it will be back???

I think Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood are the two most famous personally.

I adored Chris Daughtry from last season and will most likely wind up with his album. I really like his style and voice. :lovestruck:

Clay Aiken actually has a great fan-base,with his touring etc,he has made hinself a few million:thumbs up
Unfortunately he seems to be getting nothing but bad press,I am not sure why,in my view whether he is gay or not,really is nobodys business,has nothing to do with his singing.
I too,although I am up there in age,loved Chris and and the other one(forgot his name)with the cute smile,his name sounded greek,wish I could remember:confused:

What about Jennifer Hudson? She was on the third season of American Idol and just won a Golden Globe. :cool:

The guy with the band Hedley is Jacob Hoggard. He was on season three of Canadian Idol and I liked him and really wanted him to win. I haven't heard any of his songs with his new band though. :shrug:

I also like Simon Cowell. :D
