    IIRC, those are the brothers that thought they were the greatest thing since sliced bread, right? If so, heaven help us...

    I am not the biggest Fantasia fan, but I would still like to congratulate her on the reviews she has been getting for her Broadway role. I have read many people praising her. Good for you Fantasia!!!

    In answer to your question, these were the brothers from Memphis that were completely over the top & then when they got dismissed it was found out they were under indictment for stealing someone else's credit info to finance a car or something weird like that.

I'm a pretty cynical person, but I gotta believe that if they did anything manipulative with the votes, the show would go down in flames and they'd lose all their proceeds to lawsuits galore a long the way.

    I believe what Simon said. With minor exceptions here and there, the public gets it right. While I might not agree with places 3 through 5 or so, the right two people have gotten to places 1 and 2 and the right one has won each and every season.

    Go Fantasa!
    In the movie "Dreamgirls," I think that Jennifer proved to be the better singer and better performer. I happen to like Fantasia, Latoya, and Jennifer. All three have great singing voices, but different. We tend to see differences as good or bad...right or wrong, when it's just different.

    Fantasia dropped by 19 Management?
    Jun 26, 2008, 04:03 PM | by Shirley Halperin

    Categories: American Idol, Music, Music Biz

    Since her 2004 American Idol win, Fantasia Barrino has weathered her fair share of music business shake-ups, surviving mergers and the recent repositioning of her mentor Clive Davis, who signed her to J Records. Though she still has her contract at J, EW.com now hears that as of today, Fantasia has been dropped from 19 Management. The reason for the split, according to sources, is that age-old saw "creative differences." However, like many other Idol contestants, Fantasia remains on the label 19 Recordings and will continue to share music sales profits with the company.

    Given the poor climate for record sales, and the lackluster sales of many Idol releases, Fantasia's albums have done fairly well. Her debut, Free Yourself, sold almost 2 million copies, and the follow-up, 2006's Fantasia, went gold and garnered three Grammy nominations. She also starred in her own Lifetime TV biopic, authored a book about her rags-to-riches story, and received top billing in the Broadway production of The Color Purple. Says one executive and Fantasia defender: "She's a star and so multi-talented in every area. Sometimes you have to sever a relationship in order to move forward, but there's no doubt that Fantasia is accomplished and has proven herself. Someone will want to represent her."

    A rep for 19 declined to comment, but assured EW that management deals for David Cook, Carrie Underwood, Chris Daughtry, Jordin Sparks, and Blake Lewis remain intact. 19 also represents Annie Lennox and The Spice Girls.

    Getting away from 19 management is good for her. My family in NY says she was awesome in th color purple. What I have heard from some in the industry is not all good about 19 Management.
