    I voted on the website - worked great! Go Donny!!

    I was never a fan of his singing either growing up and I am his same age and from Utah. But, several years ago I saw him in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and I was totally blown away by his singing. The song "Close Every Door" right before intermission was spine-tingling (in a good way). I did not know he could sing that well. I can see why when he auditioned for Joseph, that Andrew Lloyd Webber asked him where he had been hiding that voice. Seeing Donny in that production totally changed my opinion of his singing. Unfortunately, the pop songs (and probably his Vegas act) do not showcase his voice like this Joseph musical did.

    I always thought he had a beautiful voice. (sigh) It always made me melt. Me and countless others!

    I sort of dropped out of Osmond-mania in the late 70s. About 5 years ago, I decided to get a "Best of" CD of theirs. I never really appreciated what an incredible voice Merrill had. They always had such great harmonies. I wish they could have taken their 50th anniversary tour in the US (besides Las Vegas).

    I've been a fan since I was 5...and I went to see him in Joseph, but he was out for about a month with laryngitis and Sam something (??) filled in for him. I was devastated to not see him.

    But I finally got to see him in concert when he did the "This is the Moment" CD. (One of my all-time fave CDs.)

    OMG.....he held a note while singing the title track for what seemed like eons and I melted into a giant puddle of goo.
    About a year later he toured again for his "Somewhere in Time" CD and I got to see him again. After the show, you could stand in line for an autograph. DH had to hold me up my legs were jelly.
    It was April of 02 and he was so gorgeous in a black turtleneck and jeans.

    He's just such a good, decent guy, even though he's a major cornball.
    Love him to pieces.

    Moving to this thread:

    I'm not sure Donny is going to win this at all. Today a douche-bag move Access Hollywood says he's been working with a Ballroom coach for a year for his Vegas act. Is Donny just an Osmond, or is he above the rules of the show?

    He's not a shoe in to win, no one is. Several of the women were better than Donny but he's still very good.

    Well I don't know if it's a rule with any consequences attached to it, but supposedly, the premise of the show is that while the celebrities may have other kinds of dance experience, they are supposed to not have any ballroom experience. But I would bet a lot of celebrities panic and seek out a ballroom instructor in the weeks before rehearsals start. I know I would do it.
