Re: American Idol
I didn't see it yet (West Coast) but Jasmine should have gone bye bye several weeks ago I.M.H.O. I'm still hoping for Fantasia since Latoya and Jennifer are both gone.

Re: American Idol
I think Fantasia's got it, even if I don't like her style, she's got the talent.

Re: American Idol
I gave up on the show last week ... I'm done. I wonder if the recent events have caused the show to slide in the ratings? At one time, it was pretty high up there every week. Fantasia was my earlier front-runner but the attitude soon swayed me to La Toya - always confident, secure, and a lady! I think that same attitude is what caused Jennifer's departure a few weeks ago. Whatever happens, we all know who the top three were. I guess we just didn't vote enough! <g>

Take care,

Re: Re: American Idol
Glenn I am with you! After last weeks unbelievable vote I too have given up on this show. Something is very very wrong here! did not watch it last night and frankly I don't care anymore!

Re: American Idol
After having seen the show, Fantasia should win hands down. No one else is even close unless the whole process is flawed, which it probably is given the voting issues.

Re: American Idol
Fantasia is the best one left, which means that she will go home tonight. *sigh*

Re: American Idol
they need to change the voting. It needs to be one vote per phone number, that would stop the "block voting" that is going on.

Re: American Idol
I agree. They need to look down the voting. They did it on Last Comic Standing last year...3 phone votes, 3 internet votes (per email address).

Fantasia is the most talented and probably the only one out of the ones left that people (other than teeny-boppers) will buy the CD. Jasmine is able to get those votes because Hawaii has no competition for phone lines, due to the different time zone. The rest of us have to fight with the others in our time zones and most of the time get busy signals.

I have heard many people gripe about the voting, but when asked if they themselves voted, many they admit they did not. So, in reality, most of us have no one to blame but ourselves for the results.

I pray it will be a Fantasia/Diana final.

Re: American Idol
Glenn, you spoke for me...I agree with everything you said.

I think the show lost credibility when Jennifer and Latoya were voted off and John the Redhead and Jasmine overstayed their welcome.

There's something about Fantasia's style and attitude that rubs me the wrong way (and no, it's not racism, as I was a huge supporter of Jennifer, George Huff and Latoya).

I tried voting for Diana non-stop last night and didn't get one call through...

anyway, just my 2 cents..

Re: American Idol
I think Fantasia will win,but the other girl is TOO cute.

Re: Re: American Idol
A very strange thing happened last night with the voting...could NOT get through on my 2
home phone numbers (this was at about 10:30). I WAS able to continuously get thru on my cell phone. Voted for my favorite at least 10 times, up until 11:00. I agree about Fantasia, although she has great showmanship, there is something about her that annoys me, and as Simon said on one of the shows, I've been saying from day 1...she sounds to me like she's inhaled haluim prior to singing. I think she performs great, but really doesn't have the star quality voice. Just my opinion.

Re: American Idol
I'm glad Jasmine is gone. It was past time.

Re: American Idol
Diana screams too often when she could be singing. She has loud pipes but the tone quality makes the hairs on my arms stand straight up. I guess that's just my visceral reaction to her singing.

MichelleP May 20th, 2004 09:33 AM

Re: Re: American Idol
Have to agree, Chuck. Everyone seems to have "grown" to like her but I still don't.

If Latoya can't be the winner, than I don't care who wins any more!!
