    They just want to make everyone a Chris Daughtry or Jennifer Hudson gone-too-soon type.

    They forget about the ones such as Katherine McPhee who certainly had a fine voice. beauty and an appealing stage presence.


    In my opinion ... Pia runs more in the Kat category minus the stage appeal.

    "No publicity is bad publicity." However, you're right in your comments.

    What the media pushes at us in not necessarily what we want. It is their choice and they don't make stars, we do. Who cares about the royal wedding? We are not begging to hear about it everyday for months. No one wants to hear about Pia either. It is the media's choice and does not mean we care or are interested.

    Actually, I can't wait to see the royal wedding tomorrow, but then, I'm just an old romantic.


    Back to Pia. Although she auditioned several times previously for AI, did she actually make it in front of Simon and Paula? Just curious, because in the initial auditions the producers pick the contestants who go before the celebrity judges.

    Great comparison, Echo. I remember when Kat had Clive Davis drooling with her torch-song rendition of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow." After AI ended, Kat had a cameo on my then-favorite show "Ugly Betty," where the heroine raved "I've got McPhever!" And what on earth has happened to her since then?

    If we are still talking about Pia a month from now does that mean she is still relevant?

    Argh! Why do people keep bumping this? Can't we just focus on the people who are still in the running?

    I'd be happy to, until she makes another appearance. Maybe as a guest on "I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!"?

    Some of us are enjoying talking about the media and its role in creating celebrity. Perhaps just ignore this thread if the conversation doesn't interest you, no?

    While Pia does not have good stage presence, on the other hand, to me the average person, Pia has a beautiful, strong, voice.

    Now on Dancing With the Stars, the guest vocal performances are NOT the visual accents. They are the audio accents. The dancers are the main visual accents.The guest vocal performers never move around on the platform if the DWTS dancers are going to perform. Therefore, Pia played extremely well in the Dancing With the Stars setting.

    In addition, they did something different with Pia's appearance, ostensibly, because she and Mark are dating and because Mark was the pro dancing to her guest vocal performance.
    They showed a split screen of Pia's head and Mark dancing. Because it was only Pia's head, it didn't matter that the rest of her body was not moving or doing anything else.

    A lot of people on the DWTS board don't like Mark, so Pia got blasted on the DWTS board, and a lot of people don't like her on this board, so she got blasted here, but objectively, I think the performance went fine. She sang beautifully. Mark danced well, and Pia spoke without any pizzazz or sparkle when Tom interviewed her which incidently he infrequently does with guest performers.

    She has a beautiful voice, but bores me to tears. She is too "Miss America Pagent" for me

    Pia did a fine imitation of Brooke when she was talking to Tom.
