Thanks and back to the thread.
Thank you eldee. I have been reading another board where this type of nit picking got WAYYY off-topic to the point where the mods moved and closed a number of threads. :mad:

I have debated whether to say anything on this thread as I have a read it a few times now.
First of all I think that Johnny wants to work equally with both Harlemm and Shannon. Sure it was obvious that Shannon was his personal fav but Johnny will have no problem working with Harlemm and helping him to have an awesome career too. Johnny is smart in his decision to sign both of them as different types of people like both of them and that means more money and publicity and the like for Wire.
As for whether it was wrong for him to announce it on the stage after he congratulated Harlemm. I was there and felt that it was a classy thing to do. Harlemm was happy for her and she was happy for him. It gave them both the chance to celebrate with their friends. I can honestly say that Harlemm did not seem upset by it at all. He seemed happy that a good friend of his had been signed.
Johnny will work with both of them equally.
I was actually glad for Shannon, but thought it was a given that Johnny would sign her regardless of whether she won or not. So, I didn't think it was necessary & it took away from Harlemm's win, for me as a fan. I noticed & discussed the incident afterwards with others - they agreed. I agree with the others on this thread, I thought it was tacky of Johnny, but since you saw him & thought Harlemm seemed genuinely happy for her, it makes me feel better about it & like him even more. What made me not think about it for long, though, was the reactions of the other contestants - they seemed so happy for him that it made me even happier since he seemed so well-loved by his peers. I think it said something tremendously positive about him as a person. Nothing that others perceive as negative can take away from the fact that the viewers voted & the majority loved him enough to choose him!

Yeah I was kind of there like I fly on the wall but I saw Serena, Shannon, Brandon and a lot of the other contestants congratulate Harlemm after the show and his family as well. They all seemed to like each other loads.

As to Johnny signing Harlemm if he didn't win. I think he might of. Johnny could see how popular Harlemm was and also that he had the drive and talent to accomplish whatever he put his mind to. Don't sell Johnny short...he knows talent. Harlemm would have been signed by someone.
My bad if I placed the hotel in New York in my own imagination - thanks for the clarification (Maybe Harlemm's voice just took me to my own little world...) It was the assumption that it was suddenly "mediocre" that irritated me. I suspected that the hotel and the other prizes wouldn't have been so bad if someone else had won.

Go Harlemm. I'm just tickled that he won, I'm so glad America chose him as the winner.
Other than being talented, Harlemm is a class act! He will work hard with anyone because he wanted this for so long. I think his maturity is a big plus in this case.
