I was very disappointed when James was eliminated. For me, there is no need to watch the rest of this season, I don't really like any of the remaining contestants. I'll keep up with events here on FORT. See you!
Quoting myself from another thread here:
Wow, was I wrong! I guess I should listen for any reports of asteroids in the vicinity of our planet, lol.I wouldn't mind seeing James go home tonight. I am so over him. But I think there's a better chance of an asteroid hitting the earth than him leaving tonight. I'm sure it will be a James/Scotty finale.
Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.
At any rate, I hope James gets a good career out of this. At the very least, he's in much better shape financially than he was before Idol. I wish him all the luck in the world.
When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down "Happy." They told me I didn't understand the assignment. I told them they didn't understand life. - John Lennon
First, I want to point out that I found James' Tourettes a bit endearing, so I'm guessing other women/girls did, too. I say this in response to those who think it worked against him.
Second, I do believe, as others have posted, that the lack of helpful criticism from the judges really hurt James. He seemed to me to be getting cockier every week, and I believe the judges' tongue baths--pooh-poohing his mistakes ("a little pitchy, but Dude, you brought it!")--gave him an unwarranted sense of confidence that he would easily go the distance. He looked to me yesterday like he was shocked he'd been booted. I would be too, if the judges had made me feel each week that I was going to be in the finale.
I am so disappointed, James has a wonderful voice which I love!! Loved his performances throughout...hate to see him leave. Huge talent!!!
Just wish to say how down the tubes Jordan Sparks is with that horrible number that she actually did in front of people on stage in public!!! Awful.
If Lady GaGa,(too disgusting for words, but she is a good singer) Iggy Poo, and others of this ilk are going to be more and more on AI...I am gone. I find all of this sickening and IMO is setting bad examples for our youth. American Idol....not anymore with this trend going on...American Shame Show!!!!!
I had heard that Lady Gaga was immensely musically gifted but had been unable to successfully break into the music scene, hence the outlandish get-ups and props as the attention getters which did the trick - allowing her to finally break the barrier that had impeded her for so long.Actually, I had heard that she was classically trained which in many ways does not surprise me because if you have that ability, you can sing anything else as well - you might need a little coaching to help, but the ability and skill is there.*
I am sorry, but I found that Lady Gaga's dress and performance at the piano in that video the kids were watching went beyond tasteless and wandered very close to vulgar.
*I have to laugh here, though, because if this is so, her classical professors are probably having an absolute fit with what she is doing!
