1st 2 showz were 2 owrz each. Sum very good singerz. The ADHD editing seemz to be gon, or at least greatly redused. And they even had a delusional on the 1st day! :D


Just watched for the first time this year. Think it's cool that they've announced the end, and aren't taking us by surprise.

Enjoyed tonite a lot. Am intrigued by the cute blonde who is talented, but seems "kinda out there." Hard to describe her affect. (I think affect is a sykological term). Anyway, I'm glad that we'll see more of her and the others that the judgiz choze.

Watched Second Chance afterward. Liked it, maybe because I've just become a septagenarian, something I never thought i'd acheeve.

Septagenarian? Iz that like an extreem vejetarian?

I usually skip all new non-animated showz on network TV. They hav a tendensy to be crap or if they arent, they get canselled quickly. Better to just wait it out & if its good, see it on DVD.

'Proof' iz a hi bar to clear here in the Skeptics Sosiety Forum. 'Evidens' iz a much more attainabl claim.

Therefor, your statement itself iz good evidens that youre an ijit, sins you shoud know this. Then the post itself iz completely off topic, adding more evidens.

:D jo, it's not relevant whether we're in skeptics society forum or kindergarten kiddies forum

high bars are required by law for such assertions; evidence is not enough, coz evidence may be strong or weak

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evidence

if you believe that even weak evidences are sufficient for you to call people ijit; that's a strong evidence that you're an ijit :D

but as you see from my previous post, I'm not that quick to call you ijit; I just told you that I needed more evidences to figure out whether I should call you ijit or not :D

your revenue from your produks would be a good start :D

so tell me jo, how much do you make a year from those charts/posters?? 5 bucks?? :wave:

I must hav missed it last week. They had a dozen singerz on last nite, got rid uv 5 and next week its going to viewer voting to get the top 10. Even tho I'm an ijit, I know that 7 minus anything duznt leav 10.

Tristan McIntosh iz my prediction for winner. Shez byootiful, poized and haz an incredibl voise. I'd put her up there with my 2 Amerikan Idol favez, Clay Aikin and Cat McFee. You woudnt gess shez only 15. Not that the rest arent great, so its likely I will be rong agen.

Was sorry to see Sonika leave.

Agree with most everyone that Trent Harmon is great, and it will take great song choices by La Porsha to beat him.

Don't think the other two guys are in the same league, but the teenyboppers could vote either of them as the winner.

Sonika wuz the last contestant I had any interest in. :( The remainderz are great singerz, but Sonika wuz also hot.

I think LaPortia shoud win, but az you say, the teenybopperz will deside. The kid who rites hiz own songz iz the most likely.

The new show iz OK so far. They seem to hav gotten over the 1/4 second edit cuts virus. The 3 jujez are kinda boring.

I'm going to hav a problem seeing if tho. I'm on an antenna and ch.7 haz a weak signal. It gets worse wen therez leavez on the treeez.

Watched Idol last night for the first time this year. Have been a major Lionel Ritchie fan for years, but know hardly anything about Luke Bryan or Katy Perry, and will look them up on Wikipedia.

Agreed with Lionel and Luke about send the young Texas yodeling lady through, while Katy disagreed, and also agreed with Lionel about having the tall kid from St. Augustine wait another year, while Katy and Luke voted to send him through.

Watched the whole show although 2 hours seemed a little long. I guess it's on this evening, but won't be able to see it.

No, we don't have a DVR, but I got home early enough to see most of the show.

You didn't miss much. Two hours of mostly human interest sob stories and crummy singing with a couple of decent singers thrown in.

I hope that you can do something about your reception in two weeks or so when they get to Hollywood, where the human interest stories will probably be repeated, anyway.

Seemz they give a standing o to every contestant and say eggzakly the same thing about how wonderful they are, but at least next week the voting will be out of their hands and the audience will decide who goes through.

I pretty much agreed with their choices, although I think that Amelia Hammer Harris is awful darned good, and was sorry to see her go.

On a scale of 1-10 tonight I gave, in order of appearances:

1. Caleb Lee Hutchinson 9
2. Michelle Susset 2
3. Marcio Donaldson 4
4. Mara Justine 4
5. Garret Jacobs 7
6. Ada Vox 9
7. Catie Turner 6
8. Cade Fochner 9
9. Dennis Lorenzo 4
10. Maddie Poppe 8
11. Jurnee 6
12. Johnny Brenns 4
13. Michael J. Woodard 9
14. Gabby Barret 7

I must admit that even as an atheist I'd prefer to hear Old Rugged Cross or Amazing Grace than songs that consist of tuneless screaming.

The show will be on again tonight at 8:00 PM Eastern when the top 14 will be pared down to the top 10.

I was very happy that Maddie won last night.

Wouldn't have minded Caleb winning, but am not partial to Gabby Barret, who came in third. Too unoriginal and formulaic imho. Seems that country singes like her are a dime a dozen, but at least she probably split the country vote, allowing Maddie to win.

Btw, the winner, Maddie Poppe, sang The Roller Skate Song. the song-writer Melanie Kafka, said the song had no sexual innuendo, yet it was banned by a lot of radio stations.
https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=ro ... &FORM=VIRE

My first wife, Jan Fowler of Red Bank, NJ, went to school with Melanie, who she said was weird and stuck up, or something like that.

And I later dated a girl who couldn't stand my first wife's two brothers because they were "stuck up." (How's that for irrelevance?)

Anyway, it's a small world.

:lol: Small world!

Innuendo in pop muzik getting banned?! Haf the songz ever to chart are about sex! The lead singer from AC/DC joked that they made their living off single entenderz.

I think Relax broke the sensorship system. It got banned by plenty uv stationz, but still got on the air all the time, so the illusion uv public desensy evaporated. The only adherents to it after that were the FCC and old granny church goerz.
