I have indulged in a lot of flirting in my life, especially with people I have already slept with. I think that Paula and Simon have had sex, at the very least once, and more probably several times. They flirt with each other all the time.

She was definately acting strange last night. I guess that pain-killer problem is back.

I totally agree. Gideon compared to Kevin is like comparing steak to dog food. There's that much difference. This could have been an awesome top 12. But they had to vote Chicken Little in instead of Gideon. Especially after he murdered "Vincent," one of my all time favorite songs. :shake:

Without Bo Bice's strong showing last year, Bucky would not have even made it to Hollywood.

When they start having to sing other types of songs, in any given genre, where he won't be able to sing the crap that he has been doing, he will be gone.

And by gone, I mean gone next week.

Having said that, I did actually like his performance from the Wed. show. I just think his voice has such a limited potential compared to Gedeons.

I suspect Chicken Little is still on because he's the recipient of the "Vote for the Worst"-type of votes. Some people think it hilarious to vote through the most feeble singer there is, like Scott Savol or the crooner kid who looked like Ken Jennings.

I hope so, anyway.

He's going to appeal to listening audiences a hell of a lot more than a guy like Gideon that can apparently only sing songs that are 25+ years old.

It's not always just about a great singing voice. A lot of people can sing. Bucky's got a little edge that makes him different. Personally, I could see him having a hell of a lot more commercial success than some fairy like Ace.

IMO, there are only two guys with real talent - the bald guy and the gray haired guy who twitches and dances like Elaine from Seinfeld. The women are much stronger - Mandisa, the two young girls, McPhee and the cute but dumb as a rock Pickler.

Chiefs Pantalones
03-10-2006, 10:08 AM
The girls are much better than the guys, IMO. The only guy with real talent is the bald guy. Ace is seems gay. He hugged that one guy, Will, after he got eliminated, the other night for like 5 minutes. After about minute number 4, Will had a freaked out look on his face. And when Ace made the top 12 he didn't hug any girls, he only hugged the guys. He didn't even acknowledge the girls. Kinda creepy, IMO. He needs to cut his hair, too. This isn't 1995.

I want Kelly to win. She has basically nothing. She doesn't go to school, she works at Sonic, her Dad is in prison, and she doesn't know where her mom is at. Either way, win or not, a lot of these girls and guys for that matter have already struck gold with the publicity from American Idol, hopefully they go far, but I think the only guy should be Chris Doatry.

Performance based, Ace should be gone next, but you know he won't be. Chicken Little should have been gone 3 weeks ago, so I hope that was the last of him.

I thought Melissa was the worst of the girls, but the judges loved her. Kelly was bad too, but her personality should save her.

Overall, I thought making them sing Stevie Wonder was a bad idea. The judges have said numerous times in the past that Wonder is a tough act to follow, and clearly he required more range than a lot of these singers had. I also think it forces some of them to sing songs that they would never try and sing professionally, which seems stupid.

Katherine McPhee, Lisa Tucker, Paris Bennett, Mandisa, Chris Daughtry, Taylor Hicks and Elliott Yamin outclass the other Five performers.

My wife does not like Elliott, but I think he has a great sounding voice.

I was so wrong to proclaim that McPhee or Tucker would win, because any of the seven I mentioned could do it.

Ace and Kellie have got a chance too. Ace because of the sex factor, and Kellie because of the likeability factor.

Bucky, Kevin and Melissa have just got to get the **** out. Bucky and Melissa have appeal, and were solid top 24, but Kevin should never have made it past Hollywood. When Randy says how good a singer he is, I just can't figure out who he is listening to.

Plus, when Kevin sings, I always here Dane Cook in my head going "Esssss, Essssss, Essssss, Esssss."

When compared to the other performances, I think it is clear that Bucky has no business being in that group. I also think that even though Kevin Covais was decent, that he also clearly does not belong.

The big shocker for me tonight was how poorly Lisa Tucker performed. You can tell she has a great voice, but overall it was the worst she has sounded. Very robotic and dull.

Mandisa, Paris, Katherine, and Chris just killed it. Taylor, Kellie, Elliott and Ace were very good.

Like I said, overall, performance to performance, it was the best American Idol I have ever heard.

Chris Daughtry may not win, but I would absolutely buy his CD.

Any of you guys watch Nashville Star? A friend of mine is a contestant this season. Jared Ashley. He is good, but there is a lot of competition so I don't know how he will do. The show kind of sucks. It is a low budget country imitation of American Idol. The judges suck (there is almost no criticism, just them telling every one of them how good they are), the hosts suck. I'd like to see Jared win though....

I caught a few minutes of it. I've only seen 2 or 3 performers and I thought they covered their songs very well. I guess they aren't forced to sing other genre's; that would get pretty ugly. They do country songs better than the AI people though.

What was really funny was on Tuesday, Randy said to Kevin "I see myself in you" and then Simon told Kevin that he likes him because he "Takes it like a man."

But, someone should tell Paris that all of her different ethnic hair-dos suck. A little greasy for me. Also, Mandisa can sing like mad, but maybe a producer could mandate fewer back shots. And maybe the stylist could get her to wear something with sleeves.

But IMO, it's about more than just vocals. It's also about commercial appeal, and Bucky is probably top 5 in that respect.

Personally, I think it's stupid that they force these artists into other genres. The judges constantly harp on song choice, but guys like Chris and Bucky would never willingly choose to sing Stevie Wonder or 50s music on a professional level. Why try and make them excel at something they'll never need professionally?

This is easily the most talented final group that has ever been on this show. The few remaining contestants that don't have amazing vocals, have other aspects that make them good entertainers, and I could see every one of them having some level of commercial success.

I don't see that at all. I can't find much appeal in any way with Bucky. His vocals are weak, his stage presence isn't very good. He is clearly far below the rest of the contestants that are left. I've played in bar bands with a lot of singers better than Bucky, and none of them are getting any record contracts. I would say that you can go into almost any bar with a live band in the country and find a singer as good as Bucky. Some of the rest of them are special - Katherine, Paris, Mandisa, Chris and Lisa - but Bucky is average at best.

He has commercial appeal. This isn't "America's Best Singer". There are enough country/southern rock fans in this world that he appeals to.

I could easily see him having more commercial success than Mandisa or Elliot (the two best singers on the show IMO). Elliots and Mandisas of the world are a dime a dozen, and have ben represented for the last four years of this show. Bucky is something a little different.

That being said, I don't expect him to last much longer. Maybe two more weeks at best. The rest of the field is just too talented.

Chris finally did what no other contestant had done - arrange a song for HIMSELF instead of trying to adjust himself to the genre.

I didn't particularly like his rendition of "Walk the Line" but what he did was ballsy, and unprecedented. That's why Simon busted out the "refused to compromise" comment.

Not only did Chris force the song to adhere to his style, he showed musical talent above and beyond just being a singer, which alot of the audience will pick up on. It's the very thing that ultimately led to INXS picking JD Fortune...

Chris' arrangment of "Walk the Line" was originally recorded by the band Live in 2001.

I heard the two recordings side-by-side and they're identical, save for Chris sang his in a slightly higher key.

What makes it weird is that supposedly Chris' favorite band is Live. He never mentioned them before performing the song, nor did he mention them during all of the accolades heaped on him afterwards.

That behavior, in and of itself, isn't so strange, until you consider how he went out of his way to mention that the version of Stevie Wonder's "Higher Ground" he sang was originally recorded by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Other people are pissed because he's "a rip-off", as if the entire premise of the show isn't about duplicating the work of others.

I don't see it as a real big deal. I thought it was his touch, as did the judges, but the reality is that he isn't doing anything different from any other contestant, he's just doing a better job of picking songs/versions that fit his style.

Thanks for the info guys! I like Chris alot, I'm a RnR or blues/jazz kinda guy vs. pop crap any day. Mostly started watching this show for the hilarity of it, but it's grown on me.

I don't have any problem with using the Chili Peppers or Live's versions as his performance. Just glad he sticks to what he does, rather than try to be a pop star, or RnB singer. I do think the judges are setting him up, with all the praise that he refuses to compromise. What happens when he runs into a genre that doesn't work? They'll crucify him!

My favs:

Kathrine - by far the best vocals, and she is smokin, IMO
Chris - love his hard rocker style better than all others' styles
Elliott - that boy can sing!
Mandisa - that girl can sing!
Taylor - fun as hell, but honestly don't think he's much of a singer
Paris - early favorite cause of her Billie Holiday during auditions, but been sliding down my list ever since

The rest can take a leap! I actually did like Melissa, but she totally choked, and deserved to go.

I havethe "Good Rockin' Tonight" CD, so I recognized the version right away. He still did a good job singing it. I'm not suprised at all, because I've thought all along that his voice sounds like the guy from Live.

If you guys get a chance, listen to the Good Rockin' Tonight CD. It is really good, with various artists performing songs from the Sun records catalog from the '50s. It has a great version of "That's Alright Mama" done by Paul McCartney, Carl Perkins doing "Sittin' on Top of the World", Jeff Beck and Crissy Hynde doing "Mystery Train", and Tom Petty doing "Blue Moon of Kentucky" among others. Hearing Petty doing bluegrass is pretty cool.

Everyone seemed impressed with Katherine tonight, but I thought it started out atrociously! IMO, she was trying to sound too much like Christina and was off the mark. I was whincing there for about a minute.

I think the judges comments are directed a lil bit by the producers to influence who goes. Lisa, for example, was much better to me, a discerning music listener, than Katherine.

Lisa has a great voice, but saying she was better than McPhee tonight is not quite right.

If she has someone helping her make song choices, she needs to stop taking their advice. She just does not have the voice to pull off that song, plus butchering a song by an American Idol winner was just not smart.

Amen on Bucky being gone. IMO, I thought (and still think) Mandisa has twice the talent as most of the finalists. Unfortunately, she has twice the ass, also.
I wasn't able to see the show last night so I don't know how she came across in a genre that she obviously was unfamiliar with.
But if her weight was an issue, that's a shame.
I'm glad the same criterion wasn't prevalent when people like Aretha Franklin were getting their start.

Kellie Pickler was one of the only singers that sounded good.
