    Not to mention his dad looks REALLY good...
    i have a hard time believing any of these kids actually know songs from 1962 so i think it is much more plausible that producers pick the songs. the judges aren't the producers and they most likely don't have anything to do with what goes on behind the scenes as far as picking the song or the outfit they choose.

    Sorry, but still don't believe it. I don't see this competition treated any different than American Idol. I highly, HIGHLY doubt they'd put SO much blame on Danielle if she never chose the song. They didn't even question it..."did someone else pick that song for you."
    Congratulations Tori and Taylor!

    Who thinks they saw things in last night's show that are evidence of attempts by TPTB ("the powers that be" - whoever you think they are) to manipulate the voters? And if so, which contestant(s) do you think they are pulling for (or trying to stop)?

    I think TPTB are obviously pulling for Chauncey.
    My evidence:

    They gave him a song that won both a Grammy and an Oscar.
    It was producer Nigel Lithgoe's favorite song.
    Ryan pronounces his name is such a way as to remind us of R-u-u-u-ben
    They dress him so as to remind us of Clay.
    He was the only one to get a cool split-screen picture
    They pointed out that he had a cold.
    Ryan complimented his SHOES!
    They showed the judges DURING his song.
    They showed his family 4 times.
    They showed people waving Chauncey signs
    And finally - MAGIC FAIRY DUST!

    Now, what did you see?
    Nicley siad Zippy! thanks... we may never know if it true, but it gives something to think about, but we'll see who gets picked...

    You know, they could make a show about toilet paper, and someone in America would not only watch it, but find conspiracy in it.

    I stand by my claim.
    Congratulations Tori and Taylor!

    I would, if they asked me to vote for my favorite.

    I have it on VERY GOOD AUTHORITY that the producers pick the songs.
    A child would never correct a judge and point that out.

    OF COURSE they are trying to influence voters!!! Why would they not want to encourage voters to vote for what they see as the most marketable? I see no conspiracy in this. Just good business.

    In one of the articles it said that the kids pick 5 songs they like and the producers pick which of those songs they sing.
