Title: American Idol - Season 10!
Post by: TexasLady on January 07, 2011, 02:32:03 PM
Season premiere: January 19, 2011, 8PM/7PM CT

This season the show will air on Wednesday and Thursday so make note of the change. Is everyone ready for the new judges and the changes they will bring? I wasn't happy when I heard that Simon wouldn't be coming back but I'm looking forward to see if what I love about AI remains.

The show is bound to slide even further than it did last year, now that Simon is no longer judging.

The season's success is not the judges for me.  It is all about the contestants and their abilities.  The show really needs some talent that stands above what is already out there.  Just my opinion.  :groan:

True...I think that Idol has worn out the country's talent and needs to wait for another generation to grow up.

 :tup: I'm liking the new Judges!!! I like that Jennifer is having a hard time saying NO :peek and that Steven Tyler is singing and beating along with some of the contestants. It makes watching the show a little more interesting if you ask me. We get to see how these extremely talented artists look and deal with other's potential and rejections.

I'm glad there wasnt a slew of "off note- crazy acts":iok  this opening show. However some of the people that were put through definately wont make it outa Hollywood week! :lol:

Title: Re: American Idol - Season 10!
Post by: Jobby on January 21, 2011, 10:10:46 AM
I like that the judges are in-sync with one another most of the time.. but i wanna see Jennifer VS Randy or Steven or Randy VS New judges.. like you know.. a 2 VS 1 vote?

Other than that, i think Idol's milking the sob stories for all they can because those are the people who will ultimately make it through and are the people whom America will ultimately root for. A total different approach which i kinda like for a change.

I for one, HATED WATCHING STUPID RIDICULOUS AUDITIONS.

But then again, i know some people enjoyed it.. but i don't care.. i like the change!

Anyway, AI dropped 13% ratings to 26.1million viewers. They better pick up to 30million or don't drop beyond 20million, otherwise this might be the very last season.

The last audition of the day, brought me to tears. Must have been the most inspiring and heartfelt audition i've seen ever on idol.
Title: Re: American Idol - Season 10!

Title: Re: American Idol - Season 10!
Post by: Jobby on January 27, 2011, 07:45:40 PM
Another moment that brought me to tears was when Randy punched the white house intern in the face. :lol3:

I like Steven Tyler as a judge! He sings along with the tune, and when he meets a really good singer, he'll give the biggest emotions and expressions.. but when there's a really bad singer.. he's not too nice about it and speaks his mind too! Very original comments and absolutely hilarious!

I guess Idol ratings will pick up.. the judges are working as a really good combination together and i'm getting used to them already. They seemed to be so season and look as if they have been doing this for ages!!

Randy has always been outshine by Simon in previous seasons, but now.. he has his fair share of fame along with JLo and Steven Tyler and i think he's liking it more and feeling more confident about his judging abilities.

As for JLo, ever so glam.. ever so hilarious.. making the right comments. She owns Paula Abdul any day. Paula's just nice but say nothing else constructive.. but at least JLo does.

She seems too proud for me. So what if you're a White House Intern and a Harvard Student?? It's not like her audition was amazing or what, as compared to other great voices we've heard in other seasons.

I realized what's missing from these auditions.. we're missing memorable auditions.. good and bad ones.. the ones which we'll remember even after many seasons later.

There were some bad auditions, but they don't focus on them.. they put them all together at one go... maybe for like 5minutes, then they'll show 15minutes of good stuff. I remember the good people more than those bad ones.

 :hearts: :hearts: i love the new judges jmo it will make idol stay for a while. steven is funny j lo is awsome and i think randy is trying to play the simond roll of bad cop, we will c so far his trying is a little anoying. i am so happy they r showing bk storys and good auditions, i was 1/2 watching till they got to hollywood for the past 9 yrs.
to answer the question on auditions i have friends who have been trew the process and frist u go to the big audition in like nashville or where ever, there they have judges we don't c and thease booths set up u get in a line at the booth or stall with a random person judgeing u, i know a season 6 contestant who got to 4th place , he whent trew this process 3 yrs in a row before he got past it. any way if u get picked frome there u go bk to the city u audition in for a call bk ,and sing for more random judges, if u get trew that round and get another call bk u go to the last round where u go before what we c on tv. u have to where the same clothes for every audition for editing, so it seems like it is all one big day but it is not. i think the whole process takes like 3 or 4 months..

He is an excellent singer and his audition brought tears to my eyes. I think he will do very well in Hollywood.

They have concentrated on the good singers this year, and as Tory said, there are lots of back stories and many of the ones we've seen so far are 15 and 16. Only a few of the rejectables.   :tup:

I missed her political prefs, but I agree with ya, Bee.  Keep it out of our shows.  Good grief, we should be be free of politics during our

The auditions are easier to watch this season b/c they're not dragging the bad ones out forever!  They're fast-tracking them and the show, and focusing a lot on the talented ones. 
I've actually for the first time been enjoying the audtions this season.

Steven King is a bit hard to look at, sorry!  But I'm  slowly adjusting to him.  I really like JLo and Randy.  They all seem to interact well.  I miss Simon a little. 

Overall, AI 10 seems to be going good & so far, a lot of great talents are heading for HWood.  :hearts:

Anyway, the Hollywood week was surprisingly good! Holly did good, i take back my words that she isn't too good. She wasn't that good at auditions but her Hollywood week was good. Chris.. disappoints. Even JLo just made a brief comment that she'll "do with" her performance.

As for 15 Year Old Victoria... :yess: :yess: :yess: :yess: :yess: SHE DIDN'T MAKE IT. SHE WAS DARN ANNOYING!!!!!!!!!

And never join the show as best friends/couple. Every year AI likes to break them up for some major drama. The previous year was Danny Gokey and friend. Now it's this poor couple.

I wished they showed us more singing than some drama mama moments though..

The "Adam Lambert wannabe" made it through the next round even though he sang bad in group round IMO.

Which one eragon? There were several screamers last night. I know there was one in the last few groups who ended the song down on his knees. He was forgettable though because I can't even remember his name.

Yup. That was the group I'm talking about. The guy with the bandana on his head.

My TV preview said only the "Top 20" will stay.

So confusing!

Anyway, i think you can sort of guess who's in the Top 20/24 already based on the focus they have given to the same few people AGAIN and AGAIN these few HW Auditions Round. :lol:

There's at least 10 people i'll be shocked to see NOT make it.

He did say top 24 next week.

What did y'all think of Jacob Lusk with his song “God Bless the Child? I was blown away and brought to tears with his emotional breakdown when he finished. He gave it everything he had.  If he doesn't go to the end it will be a horrible shame.

Haley Reinhart and Ashton Jones:

Title: Re: American Idol - Season 10!
Post by: TexasLady on February 18, 2011, 08:14:00 PM
Scott McCreery, 16 years old and a deeeeeep voice and Ta-Tynisa Wilson. Scott had to change songs and didn't have a lot of time to learn the words. They both screwed up the words but got through to the next round. LOL

Title: Re: American Idol - Season 10!
Post by: Jobby on February 18, 2011, 08:31:04 PM
TL, I know Jacob sang good. But i seriously didn't like that rendition of the song. :duno:

Hayley IMO, was MUCH BETTER than Ashton. I was blown away by Hayley!! Her voice is so unique... Ashton nailed her song. But her voice isn't very distinctive.. i would much prefer Jennifer Hudson's voice..

TL, i also didn't Scott McCreery had to change songs. I think they had a list of songs they had to choose from and his favourite country song wasn't just in the list and he had to make do with this song.

Tynisa got through to the next round thanks to her talented voice. :tup:

And did you realize how people avoided Kelly Clarkson's Because Of You? :lol:

I finally got thru all of AI and i believe that  it will be the youngins  and new yorkers that will make up ALOT of the top 20/24.

Soo many of them are distinctive. I would have to do intesive reseach  to post all the ones i like here and dont have that time today to do it. My favs are

Naima Adedapo

Jovany Barreto

Lauren Alaina

Robbie Rosen

Thia Megia

Molly DeWolf Swenson's

Haley Reinhart 

Casey Abrams

 thats who i have for now. :D

LOL.. when I read this, I thought you meant they avoided Clarkson's song because of ME!  :lol3: (But no I didn't notice that... thanks for reminding us about it.)

Yes, you are right, he had to change songs because his song was not on the list for acceptable songs. It's a good thing anyway, he will have to sing a lot of different songs, many of which will not be in his comfort zone.

I'm glad they put Tynisa through.

This is going to be a great year, so far we really have not seen the Bikini Girl type of annoying personality or that guy who sang great when he was serious but wanted to be a comedian instead. Can't even recall his name... guess he didn't  become famous.) It seems that we will have a much better group of singers and while I have to eat my words about losing Simon, the new judges are making AI exciting again!

I totally enjoy how both Steven & Jennifer interact with the contestants and how they are soo expressive and they sing along as well.  The making me feel soo impressed with AI's choice! :tup:

 I wonder how they will be when we are LIVE and the heartbreaks of each contestant is oh soo much more realistic. I also wonder what their input/guidance  will be  when it's just America voting  to put thru people instead of them.

 The shows dynamics are the same but for us and them it's about to seem changed!

 I'm loving this season! :jumpy:

It's a totally different show this year. The talent is much better and the auditions are so much better! Have we ever seen auditions showing as many performances that involve the band, the vocal coaches and scenery? Not that I recall. I loved tonight's show with the Beatles's songs and the groups of two and three. With little time to practice, most that went through did a great job.

The other striking thing for me is how confident the performers are this year. They don't show any fear at all when performing.

I am ready for this season.  It should be fantastic.  I hope Casey Abrams does not get eliminated for being in the hospital.  Looking forward to Chris Medinas on the Tonight Show Friday.  I pray that James Durbin does not crash and burn from the stress.  My youngest is high functioning autisic and the stress brings out the worst parts of the disability.

The biggest surprise of this season is I don't have just one favorite yet. :hearts:

American Idol
Nigel Lythgoe: online voting is coming

2:08 pm February 21, 2011, by Rodney Ho

Nigel Lythgoe at the Fox Theatre today, Feb. 21, 2011.


Back in 2002, “‘American Idol” offered up just one option to vote: calls.

At some point, “Idol”’ added texting as an option.

This year? Executive producer Nigel Lythgoe just told me that online voting is going to be added this season. Though a publicist later told me it was not a done deal, Lythgoe’s exact quote to me was affirmative: “We are going to introduce online voting.”

He was unsure about the details and whether there’d be any limits on the voting online. He did say that there are no plans to limit texts or voice calls. I videotaped the interview, which was rather brief. I’ll post it later.

Don't forget!!! The schedule for this week starting tonight:





Title: Re: American Idol - Season 10!
Post by: TexasLady on March 02, 2011, 01:55:07 PM
Does it bother anyone that we only get to vote once on the 24 contestants and for only 10 to stay? (2 more chosen by the judges.) I wish they would have allowed us to see them perform before a live audience and let us vote after seeing if they can overcome their nerves and pick great songs to highlight their talent.

1: Clint Bamboa Lots of energy and screaming. Randy and Steven thought he was brilliant. JLo, jitters didn't affect his performance, she expects a lot from him.




2: Jovany Barreto JLo said she was glad people could see him. Randy didn't like it, said it was just OK. (I don't even remember it.)



3: Jordan Dorsey He sings OMG by Usher. He had a lot of energy but it was not the best song for him. Judges didn't like it either. Randy said it was pitchy and if you are going to sing anybody's song, you will always be judged by that. It isn't a singer's song. He needed to do more because of the song. (It sounds better listening to him on YouTube.)




Title: Re: American Idol - Season 10!
Post by: TexasLady on March 02, 2011, 02:00:11 PM
More:

4: Tim Halpren Hated the song. The judges weren't impressed either, they thought he'd done much better. (Is he gone?)





5: Brett Loewenstern Not his best for me and he got the dreaded red lighting which usually means you're gone. Judges mentioned his hair tossing but Steven liked it, he said he brought it home. Jlo mentioned the hair but liked it, she likes who he is. Randy said he had 14 hair tosses but he's fun and bold, he appreciated that.
(Could be gone, it was a weak performance.)



 
6: James Durban I don't like the screaming and I don't much like him, but I give it to him! He clearly is going to be a contender. (Lose that tail!)

Title: Re: American Idol - Season 10!
Post by: TexasLady on March 02, 2011, 02:45:42 PM
7: Robbie Rosen It was tough to follow James, he sang "Arms of an Angel" and he seemed nervous. Steven thought it was a beautiful thing. JLo said he tells a story every time he sings, you feel every word, a huge accomplishment, a special singer. Randy disagreed, he said Robbie is one of his favorites but the notes were really pitchy and he wasn't really comfortable, didn't connect.






8: Scotty McCreery Scotty sang "Letters From Home". He is going to be a huge Country star, we're lucky to see the start of his career. Steven said he's going to get a lot of letters from home, it was beautiful. JLo, you are born to sing Country! Randy said you love Country, you are a throwback country guy, love the lowness in your voice.




9: Stefano Langone sang "Just The Way You Are". He got a slow start but when he got into the chorus, he did well.  Judges loved him! JLo called him a beast! You're amazing! Randy said that's how you do it! You had us rocking! A real rock star, good, REAL good. Steven Love your voice, loved it man!


Title: Re: American Idol - Season 10!
Post by: TexasLady on March 02, 2011, 03:14:32 PM
10: Paul McDonald.  He sang "Maggie Mae" and I thought his voice was a little raspy. Steven said: "See that Paul? It's all about the jacket! (LOL) You have character in the voice, love the character. JLo commented about his smile, "The way you move, all in black but the smile lights up the whole place. Good performance! Randy compared him to Rod Stewart, so unique, quirky and different. He said he was happy that Idol can embrace someone so different.





11: Jacob Lusk I love this guy, he's unique and a powerful singer, he sang "A House Is Not A Home". Steven Tyler said it was divine intervention that brought him here and he was honored to be in his presence. JLo compared him to Luther Vandross. "he's gone but now we have you." Randy concurred saying, "Luther would be so proud of you, we're lucky to have you here, so proud of you."




12: Casey Abrams LOVED IT! He sang "I Put A Spell On You" and got a standing O from the audience. Steven said he starts out good in his mind, good out of your mind good. Good as it gets Crazy good!  JLo said he was ***y. "***y Casey! You redefined the whole thing, you took it and ate it all up." Randy said he transformed into the song, so different, so unique.

Tomorrow night the top ten that we voted for will be announced BUT next week, according to Joesplace,the 14 who were not put through with our votes will all come back and sing again next Wednesday to be in the top 12 contestants. On Thursday the judges will name two wild cards. (Obviously one guy, one girl.) It appears that America will not be voting. Stay tuned for further developments.

I'm not a big fan of wild card additions but if one of the better singers who didn't get the votes this week is chosen, that it's all good.  :tup:

The Top 13 had been announced!

Girls:
1. Pia Toscano
2. Lauren Alaina
3. Thia Megia
4. Karen Rodriguez
5. Haley Reinhart  :eww
6. Ashton Jones (WC) :eww
7. Naima Adedapo (WC)

Guys:
1. Scotty McCreery
2. Jacob Lusk
3. Casey Abrams
4. Paul McDonald
5. James Durbin
6. Stefano Langone (WC)

Haley (Seriously?) & Ashton should not be there! When she sang her song during the Wildcard round, it was pitchy! Kendra should be there as well as Julie (even though she messed up her last song!). Just my opinion.
Title: Re: American Idol - Season 10!
Post by: ugot2bekidinmeny on March 04, 2011, 12:47:20 PM
I think it's a good choice of kids.. :tup:

Hailey does have some  pipes ♫ ♫   im glad they picked her

Aston (wildcard) plays the Diva card too much but she can sing!

Naima can sing  too! ♪♪ and  I just love her, she's different than other contestants we have seen and even though she may not win i'm happy because it will change her life!

at the minimum.. my favs will stay that much longer with the wild card choices :jumpy:

Ashton, she was great with And I'm Telling You... but she didn't connect with the audience. But she has an awesome personality for the show and i see that's why they put her through!
Title: Re: American Idol - Season 10!
Post by: Jobby on March 05, 2011, 02:18:13 AM
I didn't know why the judges rather get Naima than Kendra through. I definitely liked Kendra's performance more than Naima more... but Kendra won't last long... she'll get eaten up. I'm fine with Naima as she's a great singer.. but i just rather have Kendra..
Title: Re: American Idol - Season 10!
Post by: Jobby on March 05, 2011, 02:21:01 AM
I like Stefano and i'm a big fan now!!! :wohoo:

And i seldom say that for a male performer! As much as you know, i usually root for the guys.. but i really like Stefano's soul and tone of voice. I say he'll go far. Much more further than we will expect.
Title: Re: American Idol - Season 10!
Post by: Ruth on March 05, 2011, 02:34:10 AM
I have never felt more pleased with the votes than this season! I really thought that we'd have some random contenders into the Top 10, people who did not do so well but would still get in. But looking at the Top 10, every single one of them was deserving and absolutely worthy. Kudos to America!

I'm not exactly THAT pleased with the wildcard picks though. I'm extremely happy that Stefano is in, I was totally rooting for him and was disappointed that he didn't get through. THANK GOD for the judges putting him in. His Wildcard performance just brought tears to my eyes. I'm alright with Naima and Ashthon getting through I guess... But I really really hoped that Kendra would get in. I was surprised that she wasn't voted in, and then I was surprised that the judges did not put her in. I feel that she's got loads of potential! But well, I respect the judges' decisions.

I think we could have one of the best Top 13's yet. I'm really amazed by America's vote this time. Sure, there're other talented people who might have deserved a shot as well, but as for who were voted in, I think that America got it absolutely right. And while I'm still sad that Kendra did not make it, everyone else that I was rooting for are in. So... Can't wait for the Finals to kick off! :)

Well, I never was a copycat anyway! Hahaha yeah, I'm kinda rooting more for the guys for now. But I still hope that we can have a female winner after 3 whole seasons! I have to say that none of the girls really strike me as winner material though... For now, that is.

Lauren has an extremely marketable personality and "pop" voice. If i have to predict a Top 3 girls, it would be Lauren, Pia and Haley. I don't know.. i just really really like Haley a lot!

For the guys, i think Stefano, Scotty and James has huge chances of going far. Maybe Casey too... but Casey, is not the type of singer that i like. If they're looking for Taylor Hicks type of winner again... we already have one. :res:

Hmm, I feel that Scotty, Jacob, Casey and maybe Paul would go far. Maybe I would include Stefano in as well, so once again it seems to me that the guys will dominate. I don't know, but I feel that James has the risk of screaming his way through and when the audience gets tired of that, he'll be voted off way before the finale.

And I feel that I must be one of the rare people who're not fans of either Scotty, Jacob AND Casey, even though I can't deny their talent. I just can't connect with them somehow lol.

I like Lauren and Haley, but I'm not that impressed as of yet. We'll have to see!

I really can't wait for the Top 13 to take the stage!

And I still feel a tinge of sadness that Kendra's not here lol.

Kendra has the whole package.. but her voice will merely get her to the Top 8 or Top 6. Unless she starts impressing with powerful songs.. which she'll most probably struggle with. So i'm kinda happy with the fact that she's cut here.. at least people remember her as a good singer who was cut, rather than a bad singer who go through each week being bad.. if you know what i mean.

Scotty McCreery (Country Comfort) 


Naima Adedapo (I'm Still Standing)


I thinks she blew it doing it in a regea voice. maybe if she sung it with her normal voice it would have came thru better

Paul McDonald (Rocket Man)


 I think paul will be in the bottom  with this performance

Pia Toscano (Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me)

 
I see Pia going all the way to the finale. She's one of the few tht havent lost who they are as a performer or person. :tup:

Stefano Langone (Tiny Dancer) 

 
This songs always gives me goosebumps but Stefano didnt bring that to the surface for me. but i think he's safe


Lauren Alaina (Candle In The Wind) 


I think Lauren  did very good. she showed tht she can settle down into a comfort zone :tup:

James Durbin (Saturday Night's Alright)


I think James will be safe however i wasnt pleased at all with his performance. way over the top for me.

Thia Megia (Daniel) 

 
Thia needs to be CURRENT with her singing. The ballads/soft singing is one dimensional. I think she will ultimately be safe

Casey Abrams (Your Song)

 
I think Casey was just alright.  but he will be safe

Jacob Lusk (Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word)

 
Jacob's pulling of his face all over the and thru the song wsa so distracting to me. it took away from his singing and i also dont think it was that great of a perfomance. i think he will be bottom but  safe

Haley Reinhart (Bennie And The Jets)


I think Haley is coming into her groove! she was awesome and like Steven Tyler said "***Y" :tup:

Here's an interesting take on this season of AI that I mostly agree with:

http://new.music.yahoo.com/blogs/realityrocks/422548/songs-liesvideotape-american-idols-idle-promises/


Especially true is the part about using the same old songs and genre nights and the ridiculously conflicting judge advice throughout the season.

Tonight is the night we get to Hear how the 2 youngest finalists  to ever compete against each other do.

 I hope Lauren's nerves don't get the best of her

 and I do believe that Scotty has gotten more confidence with each performance and feeds off of the audience. Which is exactly what a good performer does.

Either way I'm hoping for a fun filled show and not alot of "fluff" :lol3:

Post by: Prophet on May 24, 2011, 08:41:51 PM
I think Scotty performed better overall. He has been the clear front runner and favorite this year it seems. So I will say that he is going to win. No matter what though he has a guaranteed career in his genre. He has mastered that slow country sound.
