The question is what was first?

A dumb audience or a dumb show?

You've spoilt it for me now...the final won't be shown in the UK for a couple more days. Not that I watch it for the talent - I just find it really, really, funny.

This show raises the bar on packaging, marketing, and selling synthetic, unoriginal, disposable "music" (and I use that word liberall). They had this great idea for a show: "Let's get a whole bunch of idiotic losers who have hopless dreams of becoming stars and make a profit! We can have the losers embarrass themselves on national television - always good for ratings - and the winners will put on a soap opera! We can give them disposable songs to sing and everything. And after the show is over, we can have the winner sing away his/her soul, put out a completely phony and unoriginal "album", and then fade into obscurity! And as soon as it's over, we'll do it all again!"
The saddest part is that it worked exactly as the makers hoped it would. Ugh...

Do they have Canadian Idol??

I used to think Kelly was hot. She's nothing special now.

That makes no fucking sense. Unless you meant that he should go sing on Broadway, which is true.

Who? (Sorry, I never watched American Idol, first or second season. I know Clay only because he's from my state and has gotten a ton of publicity in this area.)

Fox may be financing the show, but it's the recording label that makes money off the winner - and the recording labels make up the RIAA. That's the point. (I think).

Clay! It should have been Clay. But, the differece in the votes between them (1,335) is less than the amount of students that go to my high school. That's pretty close. And if their albums come out at the same time I think it will be a close competition (I'd like to see Clay sell more than Ruben)

Canadian Idol premieres on CTV June 11.

So you're saying is, the more we're downloading illegal music, the more crappy singing shows we're gonna get? They've finally found a way to punish us!

Kipper, you wanna hear some talented people? Download In Flames-Bullet Ride, or just rent "My Fair Lady" (the movie with audrey hepburn and rex harrison)...I'd like to see this Clay dude pump out "I'm getting married in the morning" or "I could've danced all night"...until then, American Idol is a piece of fucking shit...AND FUTURAMA IS THAT IMPORTANT! people shall back me up on this!

My point is that you actually missed a test to watch that crap show.

I'm now trying to avoid all BB4 stuff as much as possible, i don't know one contestants name yet.

The only episode I sat through entirely was the very first episode, just so I can laugh at the horrible participants that audition for the show. I swear, though, how can these people hear themselves and think they're pro material? Some of these guys probably got paid to go there.

why do I hate this show so much? BECAUSE IT'S CRAP! (sorry, I have serious animosity toward people who cannot sing worth beans, and besides, FOX is takng complete advantage of thses poor people just to make some quick bucks.) It's pathetic. You want real TV? Watch any episode of Farscape, or Nero wolfe, or Futurama (well, not all of futurama...), The Chronicle...all great TV shows that got cancelled. The public is just buying into all the hype that FOx has put on it. Ten bucks this show will make people go "American what?" when asked if they watched it in tenty years. It's gonn abe gone in less than that. I refuse to what something that degenerates society into hype-addled, brain-dead zombies. End of story. (as you can tell, I hate this show with a passion.)

oh, and whoever asked if these people who think they can sing, why they go up and think they're pro material, it's because their friends and family are afraid of these peoples' reactions were they to, say, be honest and tell them they suck.

There's so muh controversy about the show right now. My grandmother was listening to the raadio and they were talking about how Clay's phone lines weren't working properly and voters couldn't get through and how they could get through on Ruben's, but I don't think that matters anymore. They've both got recording contacts.

But who really remembers Kelly CLarkson anymore? And From Justin to Kelly The Tale of Two American Idols? Come on, first it should have come out on April 25, like it was supposed to, that would have been before the new Idol was announced, but now it's June 13.

I don't think anybody's gonna remember Kelly or Justin by then. Nobody excpet little teeny-boppers who are in love with Justin... It's gonna be hell at work when that movie comes out...   frown

i know i heard about that......i tried voting a lot and never could get through but i have no idea if that was the problem...........i still think it matters! Even though they both have record deals....clay isnt getting half the attention ruben is getting and clay...unlike ruben deserves that attention

i really dont care about kelly or justin.........i dont think either are that good at singing anyway..and that movie is going to suck
