    I would enjoy a duet featuring James and Haley also.

    Add me to that camp. I was not a fan of Adam's. He also screamed in almost every song he did. I admit, he's very talented, but not my cup of tea. Although, I do like his song For Your Entertainment, but I wouldn't buy the album. Now James....I'll buy his the day it releases.

    Maybe I enjoy singers that are considered screamers. I like James, Haley, and Adam. Is that such a bad thing?

    I was thinking the same thing yesterday. I never could get into Adam, but not only do I like James and Haley, I loved Syesha in season 7. And there was so much complaining on here about her screaming. I see it as passion.

    It's not an unlovable trait. Janis Joplin was a screamer. I don't care for her music, except Piece of My Heart and maybe Bobby McGee, but you can't say she wasn't successful in her short career.

    Oh, I like Mercedes Benz too!

    It is a bad thing when the screaming becomes monotonous, as with James, or done at an inappropriate times. I am a huge Steven Tyler fan, who is the greatest "screamer" of all time. He manages to use his screams to enhance the musicality of his songs, sometimes in complex ways. James has no sense of how to modulate the screaming. Haley was screaming a lot earlier in the season, then modulated it nicely by the last three weeks. There were several songs in which Adam screamed brilliantly, and other times when he sounded monotonous with it.

    Was Stephen Tyler born singing like that or did he learn it? He sure seemed to enjoy the hell out of James, so I'd say he sees potential there. James can learn to control and work those higher notes.

    Steven didn't learn it, he invented that particular type of screaming. He can scream over several octaves and modulate to convey lust, happiness, deep sadness or anger. He is brilliant.

    Yes, Steven did seem to "enjoy the hell of James". But he also supposedly adored everybody in the Top 13, including Haley, and Casey, and Jacob, and Pia, and Scotty and Lauren, and etc. etc.

    I don't mind screaming, but I hate screeching. Screeching is what Haley sounded like to me. Also certain tones that Pia and Jacob would get during most songs. A perfect example of what I consider screeching is Aretha Franklin, and an awful lot of people consider her the greatest female singer ever - so its just all taste. I never heard James as screeching - but I also don't think he needed to scream in every song. Just as I thought Adam didn't need to scream in every song.
