    The fact that Rhianna has sold 33 million albums just goes to show some people will buy anything. You just need the right promotion.

    I just wandered thru the living room and thought she needs to be autotuned more than the contestants do.

    Autotune also helps.

    I was actually pleasantly surprised that tonight's performance didn't completely suck. Even so, the fact that she makes her living as a singer still makes me go . I so love her voice and accent when she talks though.

    We all have our guilty pleasures. No shame in that. I actually love SOS and Pon De Replay. However, I find listening to more than one song of hers in a row to be migraine inducing, and some of her live performances have been .

    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    I'm happy Haley gets another shot. Stefano shouldn't have been B3 to begin with..and I'm happy with the elimination.

    Paul will be fine. He has a successful band and they'll tour after he'd finished with the idol tour. He's a club singer. I'd go hear him in a bar. It would be fun.

    Not at all, sweetie! VFTW got Paul to 12th, then 11th, then 9th and then 8th. They were on a roll!
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    Even VFTW has its limitations. They can't perform miracles.

    BTW I love jazz & I think Haley sounded fantastic. Even Casey sounded good during the duets.

    I really liked Paul last week when I tuned in, but thought last night's performance was bad. That was a terrible song choice for him, I'm not surprised he's gone after it.

    but there wasn't much I particularly liked this week. Casey got it going eventually, but I didn't like the beginning of the song, Haley was embarrassing (had ANYONE on AI ever been able to sing Blondie without it being little more than a weak imitation?), Stefano was bad...I forgot about James and turned it off, but I just watched it and the guy is having FUN. Real metal? Nah...but he's got a voice, he's got personality and it's so enjoyable getting more than the usual AI pablum.
    Q: Why can't I read the competition threads?
    A: Competition forums on the board are available to those with a Season Pass or a premium membership How to View Kiss & Cry

    Kelly sounded fantastic tonight. Her voice is in peak form! Can't wait for her new stuff. I loved her jab at Ryan. So funny. I love her...

I had a former student who's husband was in a Christian rock band and they did very well financially.
    Let's hope Jive Records views finances the same way you do!

I think the difference with Adam is that he showed more versatility, he had a stronger voice, and he had a more interesting personality and was more charismatic and articulate (as least IMO). As you said, Adam ended up not doing rock (though he did something he wanted to do). If last night is any indiation, Jimmy Iovine has no interest in making a heavy metal album with James. I have no idea what they will do with him other than maybe something more in the Daughtry or Cook line of "rock."

    And speaking of Cook, he's going to be on next week and releasing a single.
    I just listened to the snippet of Cook's single on mjs. It sounds catchy enough, but I swear I hear Taylor Swift banjo guitars.

    Yeah, I really, really hope that James does not do Daughtry/Cook rock. Nothing against Daughtry or Cook either, but we have enough of that from this show and it's not going to add anything new to the music scene. I think Adam was vocal about his love for dance and pop ("I wanna see Katy Perry!!!") early enough that most of his fans accepted that was where he wanted to go and that was what he wanted to do, but James? I always got the impression that it's hard rock/metal for him.

    That would be a GREAT choice.

    Actually, I read on Billboard.biz's yearly review that out of all the songs that hit the top of the charts last year, only 6 didn't have autotune. Three of them were Rihanna. Go figure. (The others were Bruno Mars and Eminem.) I also love Rihanna...She's not THAT bad.

    Well then those must have been the only 3 songs Rihanna ever recorded without autotune. I am not hating on her but she uses it a lot. I did love her tonight. I giver her a lot of credit for working on her voice AFTER she made it because it SO MUCH BETTER than when she came on the scene.

    A friend told me that Rihanna is really hit or miss when it comes to live performances. She tends to be awful at big award shows, but sometimes, she's sounds very close to her recording. Her X-Factor performance of "What's My Name" is one of the latter.
