Hi Fellow American Idol Fans!!

I decided to start this thread once again since it was very popular last season. I cannot believe it is already time to start American Idol again...

Hope this catches on like it did last year. Try-outs are being aired tomorrow night!!!!

I've been an AI fan, It's fun to watch.

I've heard rumblings it's kind of losing it's steam :o

I think they just announced recently all these former AI had been dropped from their record companies like Katherine McPhee, The Soul Patrol guy (totally blanking on his name), Fantasia, Clay Aiken, Ruben Studdard, I thought they even said Jordan was too even though she has one hit out right now. I guess they say the interest hasn't been there.

I hope this year they have some spectacular talent.

Just to clarify Clay Aiken was NOT dropped from his contract. He is currently starring on Broadway in Spamalot and working on a new album due out this summer sometime.

I really like Kelly Clarkson, I can always sing along to her music :)

I do too, I don't know what happened with all the bad publicity of her last album?

The "Soul Patrol" guy was Taylor Hicks...I really liked him on the show but he kinda bombed afterwards.....my farorite is Carrie Underwood and I think Chris Doughtry is one of the best to come out of AI...and he didn't even win.

Oooh, I really like Chris Daughtry too. I also like Carrie. Kelly, Chris, and Carrie are probably my favorites.

I also liked Ruben on the show, don't know what happened to him there, post show.

And Bo, he was one of my faves on the show for his season.

I am such an AI geek. I have Bucky, Daughtry, Carrie, Kelly, and Fantasia all on c.d.. I probably have more than that and just can't think of them. Thus far Blake and Carrie have been my favorites on the show.

What is Blake doing now? I haven't heard anything about an album.

I watched an interesting show about Simon Cowell the other day. Did anyone else see it? It was all about how he brought the show over from England and they got turned down by every network they pitched it to and then some executive's daughter begged him to air it and they did and that's how Idol started. Then it went on to talk about how Simon makes a fortune on every Idol contestant's album (not just the winners). It was actually a really interesting show.

IDOL TONIGHT!!!!

*edit* I just googled blake lewis and found his site and bought his album on amazon. :) I didn't know it was out yet. YEA!!!

I like Daughtry's latest song, Over You, but the others I had not been crazy about. I hate "Going Home" song, it got overplayed when they used it on Idol.

I cannot stand Taylor Hicks, I think it is probably his looks, he just looks too old to be an AI.

Angie, I saw that (or at least part of it) special on Simon. It was very interesting!

Yay! It's time for Idol again!! :D

That's very interesting about Simon. DH and I were happy that when Chris D. was sent home. We thought he'd do better for himself rather than owe his soul to AI. Carrie, Chris, and Kelly Clarkson are my favorites from AI.

I would be surprised if Idol is losing steam. They were breaking records again all last season. Blake was definitely my favorite last year. Chris Daughtry is HUGE around here, since he's local. My husband used to work with someone who lived down the street from him.

I'm looking forward to the new season, and I'm hoping they'll have a couple good rockers. I loved Gina from last year, and was bummed when she got the boot.

I too loved Gina!!! She was my favorite, I really think she will get farther away from AI too. She is very talented and is a rock chick.

I could not stand Melinda....

Apparently all the Idol contestants are indebted to the show, or at least Simon Cowell. That's the way the Simon special made it sound anyway.

Do you guys think Simon Cowell is his real name? I mean, really... S. Cowell? Scowl? Sounds like a stage name to me. And who's Simon Fuller that's credited as the producer on Idol? Food for thought.

You know, Idol hasn't even started yet and already we have a 2 page thread and counting.

OK...easy on the too old loooking stuff...LOL. I am with you on the Melinda thing....her mannerisms drove me nuts! Simon is one of the main reasons I watch the show....his expessions are a show all in themselves. I do not like it though when he gets personal though like when he picks on somebodys weight...though I guess all of it is part of the package. I have a friend whos daughter tried out last year ...got past the first couple of stages but didn't make it far enough for TV. She has an amazing voice but did not have the "IT" thing they were looking for I guess. She did win the Idol contest that was put on at the kids high school....against about 100 people.....every little victory counts!

I have to admit, I didn't follow the last two seasons as closely as I did the prevous ones.

I am totally drawing a blank on who Melinda is :ph34r:

I also don't watch the auditioning portion, too excrutiatingly painful, so I'll probably be out of the conversation until they narrow it down to the top 12 or so :lol::lol:

I go back and forth on Simon, sometimes I think he is over the top and obnoxious, out of line even, and sometimes I think he is right on with his opinions.

She is the one who always looked TOTALLY shocked whenever the judges said something good about her. I think she toned that down in the last few shows though. :P

    I am celiac and eat gluten-free, DF, SF and sunflower free because I'm highly reactive to all 4. I discovered about a year and a half ago that I would have severe and immediate GI reactions, similar to as if I ate dairy, to anything with sunflower/safflower products in it, but I think that's when using the oil became more prevalent too. Strange because I loved sunflower seeds as a kid. I've also linked it to places I've eaten out where everything was fine and then discovered they started using s
    So i recently had a baby and 3 months postpartum I started celery juicing and after juicing my stomach would be in so much pain. So I stopped it for a while and a whole month no pain or issues. I made an apt with a GI doctor to just get my blood work checked everything came back great except the Ema it was 1:20 he said it was strange because all the other Celiac panel test were negative my Ttg and the genetic screening even. So I made an apt with another doctor for second opinion she stated that
Potatoes are good for breakfast! Your concoction sounds pretty good. K, how about this? Peel & dice potatoes, fry them in just enough olive oil to keep them from sticking in a skillet until they begin getting crispy. Toss in diced sweet peppers or maybe chili peppers, onions to soften. I know you're not doing egg yolks b/c of iodine but you can do the whites. Pour egg white on top until the white is done. If you have a steak or some leftover steak, you can heat that on the side. YUM!
