Idol Chatter

Its amazing to me that I get the most comments when I post about American Idol! Now, Mrs. Mogul, if you don't want to know how everyone did since you don't get Idol till Friday, skip the next paragraph.

I thought they were mostly boring last night. Carrie and Bo, in my opinion, were exceptional. Bo's version of "Stand By Me" was terrific, and Carrie's "Trouble" was great. I thought Simon would comment on her being "like a kitten trying to be a tiger" but he didn't. Then came Vonzell. She has really great potential - great voice, great stage presence, great look - but she doesn't always stay on key with the lower notes. Next was Scott - you all know how I feel about him. But he was better than Anthony last night. Poor, poor Anthony. He just doesn't have it. And while I really want Scott to go, I predict Anthony will be the one. But we all know anything can happen.

The shocking thing to me was that out of all of the second songs they sang, the ones from this week's billboard charts, I only knew Bo's song. Hm, I think that means I am getting old. Or that I have better taste in music than the Top 40.

So here is my question - if your favorite wins, will you buy his/her CD? Have you ever bought an Idol CD? I have been a big Idol fan since season 1, and I still think Kelly Clarkson is the best Idol, but I have never bought any of her (or any of theirs, actually) CD's. What about you?

(And PS - THANK GOD the old couple is gone from The Amazing Race!)

If I heard her screech "Meredith!!!" one more time, I think I'd have to shoot my TV.

As you know, I am not a big Idol-fan, but i *am* a buit True Jersey Girl-fan, so I'll comment anyway! ;-)

Now, if you want to know the kind of music *i* would buy, check this out... http://www.wearericharddavid.com/

yes you'll laugh. you'll cry. then you'll think me very strange indeed. Then maybe, just maybe, you'll catch the beautiful tunes under all the *mess* and understand what I am on about..

I too was pondering the fact that I did not recognize the songs from the Top 40 charts, guess I am not so hip myself.

Bo was awesome last night. His version of Stand By Me, was spot on! Other than that I was pretty indifferent. Something about Vonzell bugs me and I don't care for her at all. Anthony wasw the worst last night, which most likely means he is safe *laugh*

Oh no! I totally forgot to tape Amazing Race last night...crazy night! Glad that the old folks are gone, it was hard trying to remember which one was Meredith and which one was Gretchen.

Molly said...

Oh and I forgot to say that there is no way in hell I would ever buy an AI winner's CD!

Bo's it. Axe murder boy better go tonight..or Anthony, although, he put his glasses back on THANK GOD! He and Ryan both look better in specs. The whole thing gives me odgeda!

Retro Girl said...

I'll definately buy an Idol CD if it's from Carrie or Bo. I bought the Idol compilation CD from the first season and my daughter has the newest Kelly Clarkson CD.

I only recognized Bo's song, too!

Being a Philly girl myself, anyone from Jersey's ok with me :)

The thing about Carrie is, that might hurt her in the end, that she is kinda boring - she doesn't have one of those personalities that stand out. She's got a fantastic voice though, and hopefully they can develop her a bit.

I don't really buy a lot of CD's anyway. I listen to the radio at work, and to and from work, but other than that I'm usually just watching TV (these days, the Phillies LOSE as always). So I don't know if I'd buy one of their CD's or not.

Bo....... I don't know if he'll ever become "mainstream" the way Kelly and Clay have. It's just not him. He's a rock 'n roller and always will be. If I'd buy anyone's CD's though this year, it'd be Bo's and Carrie's.

I hope the dipshits out there don't ruin the show and end up voting to keep Anthony or Scott in - why is there always a jackass out there tryin to ruin it for everyone else.

Should be interesting, I'll be watchin tonight!

I've thought about this question. Of the finalists, I think I would enjoy listening to Bo's album the most. He is just a classic.

Katy said...

I love American Idol, but I probably would not (and have not) bought a cd. I too am glad I do not have to hear her screech "Meredith " anymore. I am proud of the old folks for making it sooo far. I have to admit I want Amber and Rob to win.

I probably would buy an American Idol cd.... well I am going too far with that, I would probably burn it, such as I did with Kelly Clarkson. If it's Carrie Underwood, no doubt I'll get it!

I bought Kelly's second album because it's just very good. And she's very good.

The others, I haven't even downloaded any of their songs from iTunes.

Nice wrap up btw.

Goldberry said...

I have never bought an AI CD and I am not sure that I plan to.

Everything you said is exactly how I feel. Even with the kitten trying to be a tiger thing. My husband and I talked about that.

MommaK said...

Yes, I have Kelly's latest CD and Fantasia's. Both are worth the $13.

I think Anthony showed last night that he is still there only by the grace of God and his fans. I like him, he's a sweetie- of course - but he's not that talented- kind of like Jasmine or John last year.

I can't stand Scott. I don't care how he performs, I can't stand him. And now he wants to brag about how he'll be around next week....ick, yuck, blah...he is so nasty & annoying.

Carrie & Bo & Vonselle were the best. Carrie is a little rigid. That make start to cause her trouble. I just want to see her let loose. When she kicked that mic stand down last night I thought- Oh here she goes...but she didn't. She's got an amazing voice though.

Should be good tonight. That and the primetime special....good stuff.

Did you know that the only way Corey sold his story to ABC was if they would play some of his latest song? That smells funny too...

Dawn said...

I thought Bo did great -- I'm not a fan of Carrie - and I agree I think Anthony will be the one to go!

Guppyman said...

The only CD I'd buy from an Idol winner would be if somehow VTFW comes thru and Scott wins the whole thing. I'd buy it just to give the boy some props after what Simon and Co. has put him thru.

About last night's performances... It all comes down to this... There are 2 superstars (Bo And Carrie), 2 amateurs (Anthony and Vonzell) and 1 wildcard (my boy Scott)... With the press VFTW has gotten recently, I think Scott has a great shot at winning it all.

About Amazing Race... I am amazed that Meridith & Gretchen got as far as they did... They were an early favorite of mine, but the more time passed, the more her whining got on my nerves.... So now, I am glad she's gone. Look for Romber to win the finale next week....

Anyway... thanks for the comments over on my site... feel free to come by anytime.

I feel so left out... I'm not an AI watcher this year! Boo hoo hoo... [going off to sulk]

Cori said...

You should have an Idol post. But anyway Anthony is outta there. Poor old couple from amazing race-but I am surprised they lasted this long.

Zee said...

just stopping by to say hi! was offline most of the weekend, and missed stopping by. :o)
(sorry, i'm not into american idol)

Well you know where I stand on Anthony. That bastard! I just love Bo. He can do no wrong. Vonzell, she has a great voice but there's something about her that doesn't do it for me. I don't know what it is. I will not support anyone who has beat a woman. Ain't gonna happen. Carrie, she's cute and has a nice voice but doesn't do it for me either.

I downloaded Kelly's first cd. I love her voice. That song "Anytime" makes me think of my relationship with The Dude. We're some co-dependent mofos.

She's the only Idol I got love for. Ruben and Fantasia can suck it.

Bumbling Bav said...

I like Kelly too, but have I purchase any cds other than Strawberry Shortcake or The Wiggles..... ya the answer is NO!

Okgirl Speaks said...

Scott...ewww! Bo is from my area so around here, it's all about Bo right now. That is getting a little old. I like Carrie though. She does lack a little in the personality area, but she is pretty and she can sing. I dunno if that would make me buy an American Idol CD or not. It's bad enough just talking my husband into lettting me watch it. HA!
