American Idol - eat your hearts out.
An Italian talent contest:
ETA: E! News just said that Gaga's press rep denied that Adam was thrown out, and Gaga's violinist tweeted during the party that Adam was a sweetheart, so I think Perez is just bullshitting.

Naima and Thia just sang Teenage Dream on Jay Leno's show. It wasn't good.
Why on earth would anyone want to come to that human pimple's birthday? I imagine some celebrities are only pretending to be his "friends" so he won't obsessively bully them in his blog. I guess Adam doesn't give a shit. Good for him.
I don't expect any less from him.ETA: E! News just said that Gaga's press rep denied that Adam was thrown out, and Gaga's violinist tweeted during the party that Adam was a sweetheart, so I think Perez is just bullshitting.
This is Thia's 2nd chance and it hasn't gone anywhere. She was on America's Got Talent and the public didn't buy into her just as they didn't on AI. Age is certainly an argument, however, younger artists have been highly successful. She's had plenty of performing experience, but she still doesn't connect with audiences. I think she needs to look elsewhere for a career. Or go to one of those fine arts high schools and become a vocal teacher. Performer isn't in her cards.
Naima tired to be a performer, but she didn't have the vocal chops to offset her quirkiness. It just came off as weird. I hope she makes some money on the tour because I don't think she'll make a living in the music business. People at work talked about her so she got noticed, unfortunately, none of the talk was positive.
If you exit Idol in the 5th place or above, the exposure on the show will probably help find a niche. If you exit in 12-9th place, not likely to happen.
I just read a news story about Naima & it said she has 5 daughters, not 2. They only showed 2 on all the background stuff. She's only 26 & she has a college degree. When did she find time to have 5 babies? Just wow.
What an amazing kid. Go, Thia!!
Colour me displeased when a jumping bean comes out of nowhere and grabs the Olympic Gold Medal.
I never said she wasn't talented. She is. But, there are lots of talented singers who never have a successful career as a performer. The two are hardly synominous. She clearly did not have sufficient appeal to either audience of AI or AGT and age is a factor. There have been 4 yos get to the semi-finals of AGT. 4 yos who had more performance abiltiy than Thia. She doesn't know how to act and JLo is correct that that skill is what sets the winners apart. James Durbin isn't nearly as technically proficient, yet I'm betting he makes the semi-finals if not the final on AI simply because he does know how to *act* on stage. That's why Paul is still there. Lauren and Haley are getting a clue. Poor Thia never did. I wouldn't sign her if I was a record producer because I'd probably lose money. She may find options that work for her and I wish her well.
I really don't think this the last we'll hear of Thia. Some smart producer will get ahold of her...she needs to work on performance & connection...the voice is already there. In fact the voice is amazing.
I'll bet the producers are sorry now they didn't put thru Kendra Chantelle. I think she would whipping Pia's butt by now. Maybe she didn't interview well but she knew how to work the stage.
Here's a video if anybody's interested. They did great!
Or she could have a broadway career if she learns how to emote and I know she will as she age and gained life experiences.
I'm for people here writing her off already.
I always thought Thia had this dazed, bewildered look through most of her experience on AI. I don't think that helped her...
