    Re: Carly Smithson - Season 7

    Thanks for the shout out, Kresge - the Gator boys are comin' back! But will Carly (to stay on topic)? She just didn't seem to try to connect with the audience last night. Just as if she was singing in a vacuum.
    Down where the old Gators play. . .

    I watch the fluff piece about her, and I love her. She starts singing her songs, and I enjoy her work in the lower register. Then, she starts to scream, vocally and facially, and she loses me entirely.

    While I don't have an issue with Carly having had a previous record, I don't think it is fair to compare her to Carrie, Bo, Taylor or any of the others that previously had CD'S released. They all did it on a self produced & released basis. Carly was heavily backed to the tune of $2.2 million. Big difference.

    I see your point, and I agree.

    But I still agree with Crowder, AI makes the rules and she qualifies under those rules, so I have no problem with her or anyone else with a previous album (no matter how produced) being there.

    So, I say vote for her if she's your cup of tea and don't if she's not. At this point, I haven't been moved enough by anyone to pick up the phone.

    I don't like her either! That huge, ugly tattoo didn't work with the dress she had on... She needs to keep that nasty body art hidden.

    During her performance this week while she's moving and bobbing around--

    Me: She's obviously not wearing a bra.

    Hubby: She obviously doesn't need one.

    Me: Huh?

    Hubby: Well, it's not smacking her in the face or anything.

    I was irritated with how bouncy she was.

    I just don't like her as a contestant. I'm sure she's very nice as a person, but American Idol? C'mon. No.

    I dislike the way the show is pushing her ahead of the others. Nevertheless because I've been doing it for ALL of the Idolators, I've been trying to think of an interesting Beatles song I'd like to hear her sing.

    A few ideas:

    "Across The Universe". More the Fiona Apple version than the Beatles one, but it would work for her.

    Or how about "One After 909"?

    I don't think I want to hear Carly do a Beatles ballad.

    Another odd idea: "Dig A Pony". The vocals actually get kind of soaring on that one. At least the way John did it.

    'across the universe' would be incredible.
    i don't know how it would work without more than 1 singer, but 'because' could potentially be great for her.
