Pretty much. But, at least a freakin' musician won for once instead of the usual karaoke wailer.

justneal: so now that dave matthews has won american idol, is is open to all singers with record contracts?


Lol.

I liked him from the beginning and it's only because of him that I actually paid some attention to AI this season. Been years since I actually cared to watch it or who won. Last one I know who won was Carrie Underwood and she's made it huge in country music and I couldn't even name one of her songs but I know she won.

I agree.

God the finale did suck but I liked seeing Aerosmith, although not a huge fan. Saw them in concert in the early 90s and was like meh. Only went because the ex wanted to see them.

Big Aerosmith fans just hope the Toxic Twins will start making out on stage too; but in their defense, Tyler and Perry have always been like that on stage and/or in videos.

What a gathering of the past several years' Idol winners would be:

/Odd, considering the only two Idol winners to have sustained music careers are women.

He's got a long career doing DMB covers at state fairs all across the greater midwest
 
2012-05-24 11:58:40 AM
He bottled up what is popular with youth right now... The indie/fake-folk/faux-Americana that the kids are listening to. He's still pretty good. He may not have the best voice ever, but I always paid attention to his fret hand. He seems pretty technically sound with a guitar. I'd like to hear him play a solo or guitar piece.

Agreed. He's painfully bad at singing certain (mostly non-genre) songs, but at least he's a real musician. He did great with Fogerty last night.

Say what you will about the show, it's pretty good TV and interesting human drama. I will never buy any albums by the kids involved for the most part, but I love music in general and it's cool to see some of the talent develop and compete. The production is also extremely well done, if a bit over the top at times (unlike the cheesy, pathetic circus of America's Got Talent, which is unwatchable for me).

I tend to feel pretty invested in the contestants after following their journey for almost 5 months.... the two hour finale is a nice way to finish things for the year.

I'll check out Phillip's album when it hits Spotify, just for curiosities sake...

Mrs. Darch watches this stupid show and kept complaining to me that they kept voting a Dave Matthews impersonator through. It was driving her nuts that not one of the "judges" seemed to notice that this dudes entire schtick was mimicking Matthews to a "t". Finally, I took a look myself and... wow. The dude wasn't just mimicking Matthews, he was copying his every move. The floppy foot movement, the way the acoustic guitar is worn, the singing style, the mode of dress... need I go on?

And he won.

Makes sense.

/how do I check off this rock?

I didn't know who those people were so I consulted Wikipedia and got stuck in a wiki causality loop that lead to the knowledge that the season 10 winner released a single entitled "I Love You This Big." Why do we allow these people to live?

What about the blond girl from Texas. She could really sing but she talks with an with the English accent. Will she be on the BBC later?

As disappointed as I have become with AI since Simon left, I will give p2 props on a coupla things:

1.) Kid has been playing with some serious medical issues: Has some Kidney problem that's been getting progressively worse, and apparently has a stint in, in lieu of the major surgery the Dr.'s have been saying he needs badly - speculation is that pain is the reason he didn't finish his coronation song, and definitely why he hasn't been in any of the mandatory Ford commercials and was pretty absent from the finale.
2.) His 'Fark You' to the stylists and molders who wanted to glam him up. His attitude about it was pretty impressive: I don't care about what I look like, I care more about what I sound like,

There are also rumblings that the surgery that is being scheduled for p2 is making the Idols Live tour folks very nervous: Gonna be a lot of explaining to do if your winner can't show up for many performances.

But Idol really needs to be taken out to pasture and shot. It's just not as interesting as it used to be.

That about covers it

But don't forget that smirky kid who won last year, you know the one who looks like he needs a good shot right to the jaw

Hollie's accent is so unique, which is why I had a soft spot for her. She's like a little pixie. I never watch AI, but she piqued my interest towards the last few weeks of this season.

Since I don't give one-tenth of one fark about who wins American Idol since said winners are lucky if they even get their full 15 minutes of fame, let me actually take a look at the guy's name here:

Phillip Phillips.

Yeah. Really, Phillip's parents? That's all you could come up with for your son's name? Just how many ass-kickings did he receive when he was a kid, might I ask?

I really don't think there could be a clearer indicator of "not a fark was given" than his parents' decision to give him that name. I can see it now: "Ugh, just call him Phillip. Who gives a shiat?"

I don't care how much it cost; I'd get a legal name change post-haste if I was that guy.

I am glad to see that other people do not give a shait about this stupid show. My mother and sister have been raving about it for, what seems like, forever. Even to the point of debating the quality of singers on MY facebook page.

I liked how his 'single' sounded exactly like a clone of Mumford & Sons and Randy Jackson said it sounded like Mumford & Sons, and then J-Lo followed that with: There is nobody out there who sounds like this.

And then was later arguing with Randy (off mic) about how there's nobody out there who sounded like that.

- Too cool for TV
- Doesn't have a TV
- Uses Netflix

Congrats, you have all the "I'm better than you because I only watch TV when I watch TV" thing nailed.
