Believe it or not, I also like that annoying little homeless boy. There was something about him...

He was good...I liked him too, but the fake accent was hilarious! :lol::lol:

Hi, I'm new and AI is a guilty pleasure for me too. Need something to keep me distracted from life. I have no musical talent what so ever, unless you count playing the radio. I can do that pretty well. Is is just me, or does who they send through seem random somtimes. Like the homeless boy. He didn't seem like a good singer. At least I have heard better, and that means nothing since I can't hear a tune or pitch or any of that, but still. . . sometimes it seems like they can't either.

Hi Jay

Welcome to the Board!!!

The homeless boy was different but I did like him.

The girl who was dancing all over the place was a little odd, and then she got mad when they asked her if she was faking it.

The rocker was amazing her second song was Traveling Band by CCR.

Hi!

I think the homeless guy was easily mockable, which makes for good television. That's probably why they put him through. LOL

Susie, if you want to see Paula being spacey, watch Hey Paula! Apparently she goes days and days without sleeping. She looks horrible and makes absolutely no sense. Its sad, but hilarious.

Last night was another great show. I really don't remember anyone except for the girl that they made learn the Dolly song. I actually kind of liked her. Her singing left a lot to be desired, but she was sweet. She did sound a lot like Dolly!

I missed it last night. I agree the homeless kid is mockable. He just seems to be missing a few maybe.

Paula does seem to get spacier as the days go on. Did you see them making fun of her the other night when she couldnt say the word no?

Thanks for the welcome! I checked out right after sending that. No one else was online at that moment.

I liked the Dolly sound alike myself. She was sweet, but again, not really as talented as others. I guess they figure that they can weed out the less talented people in Dollywood, or Hollywood or whatever.

Can't wait for tomorrow's show!

I liked the girl who preached about safe sex and abstaining, but she got cut last night. I thought she was cute.

I liked the girl who sung Amazing Grace

I did not like the pagent queen girl at all....she annoyed me!

So far I like Josiah (the homeless kid), the rockin' nurse, the girl tattoo shop owner (the one whose arm is completely tattoo'd), and the 16 year old boy that suffered from vocal paralysis a few months ago. I also really like the cute farmer kid, but I don't know if he's even there anymore. They didn't show him. There were a few others we liked, but I can't remember who. I think Josiah's going to fall apart if he makes it to the top 24. He's an emotional basketcase.

I was SO glad that the Lampkins didn't make it any further!!! Jeffrey was really starting to get on my nerves! I didn't like the pageant queen girl either.

Personally,

My favorites from previous AI seasons are Kelly, Clay, Carrie, and Josh Greyson (country singer-I think that's his name)...he was the military guy with a new baby who challenged Simon to do push-ups on stage from season 1.

The person I think got screwed by voters was Tamiarah (sp?) from season 1 (I think).

The guy dressed in feathers at this year's auditions had me cracking up. I just love watching the auditions. Makes me feel more normal ;):blink:

So far, my favorite is the 18 yr. old kid with brown hair...he's got a gorgeous voice, and he seems very polite.

Well, that's my life. Taking care of my son, cleaning the house, and getting a good laugh from the AI auditions. Kind of sad... well, everything but my baby. He's my joy. :wub:

Where is everyone??

Now that it is down to 24 people, I'll start watching AI. :D I watched the guys last night. I liked a few of them. Some them I really didn't care for (like the Ellen DeGeneres look-alike).

Um, what's up with Paula's puffy face?

I'm going to try to watch tonight, but I'm leaving town in the morning so I'm not sure if I will be able to.

That Danny kid that sang Elvis's Jail House rocked bothers me....he is a bit stuck on himself. I didn't care for Colton either. Where is the kid who lived in his car...I started watching and missed the first few.

The homeless kid didn't make the top 24. I really liked that 17-year-old. Was his name David? The guy with the dread locks who played guitar was good too. I don't really remember anyone else. :huh:

She's going to get tested.

The guys are really strong this year!!! Last year most of the guys didn't even deserve to be there. This year its the opposite, they're mostly all awesome with only a few exceptions. So how do you think the girls will do tonight? I hope they're even half as good as the guys. Thus far my guy favorites are the Davids, Jason Castro, and Michael Johns. I hope they all make it to the top 12. :) I can't wait to hear the girls tonight!!!

I only watched the first hour last night, so didn't get to see much, lol. Will probably do the same tonight.

I think they have some really strong contenders in both women and men this year...kind of exciting, lol.

Now that it has been narrowed down, I'm gonna start watching, like you Cheri :lol:

I tivoed it and haven't had a chance to watch it yet, it's hard to keep up with when it is on 3 nights a week :wacko:

What do you guys all think about the questions being raised that some of the contestants aren't ameteurs??

Tivo is an amazing thing, it only took me about 20 minutes to watch all of the performances :lol:

That means there is about an hour and forty minutes of commercials and filler in the 2 hr show :lol::lol:

Love him!! Michael Johns, I think he is my favorite so far :D

These are the ones who stood out for me:

Michael Johns

Jason Castro

David Archuleta

I felt so bad for that kid with the long hair, Garrett Haley, Simon was totally cruel. He should just stick to critiquing the performance and the music/song, not personal appearance.
