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>
NCL Sun x 2, Monarch OTS, Oasis OTS, Independence OTS, Navigator OTS, Mariner OTS x 2, Sovereign OTS, CCL Legend, CCL Fascination x 2, CCL Glory, CCL Celebration, CCL Miracle x 2, CCL Pride, CCL Fantasy, CCL Freedom, CCL Breeze x 2, CCL Liberty, CCL Imagination, Emerald Princess
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.
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.
