In Reply to: Do you all remember me? The gal who was thinking of quitting her current sm - Question

I remember him from years ago and the Dawson McAlister youth conferences. He was one of the main vocalists. Glad to hear that he has made it big-time.

Yep, Chris is my fav . . . I think
Bucky might go.
Chris all the way....sm
Just think he has not been picking as good of songs.  Cannot stand Elliott and his vibrato. 
Chris D
The band is Fuel and he sang their song "Hemorrhage" a while back on AI. I also heard that there was, in fact, a phone number error on the show Tuesday, where his votes were going to Katherine...this was on a local radio station where I live. Not sure if he's gonna come back or not...have to wait and see I guess!
hey chris,
I didn't read many of them, but it seems you've taken a lot of flack here. I will say that at MDI, they have a doctor on staff that is head of the QA dept. But I expect if you got on there, you'd have a more-than-full-time job, and no time for private practice, though I cannot say for sure. There are benefits to the MTs as we are statutory, but not sure about whether it is offered to those in other capacities. I think there is a group insurance out there for the self-employed, though that is not what I have. I'd be inclined to think you might fare better doing a crash course in coding and go that route, as that can be done from home too. Otherwise, best bet would be to contact the various MTSOs and inquire directly of them, as many here will only bite your head off. Sorry we cannot be of more help. The best to you.
Chris....and Kelly....
I really wish that America would get it right for once and not base this on "looks" but on talent. Let's be real, seriously Kelly is not that great, she's just a cute Barbie. Katherine is the most talentin IMO in regard to the girls. I really would love to see Chris win it, he is the most talented and not bad looking either!! A total package. Just like Bo last season. He really should have won it. Carrie is just a robotic Barbie now.
Chris is da bomb!!!
Isn't that awesome how Elliott sings with 90% hearing loss in one ear?
Chris rocks
I can't believe Bucky wasn't gone sooner. Lisa was definitely a better singer than he was, he was always off and he did that rapid blinking...I don't think he was talented at all.
That;s how I feel about Chris (nm)
Chris got the boot.
A very talented man; dont' fret his life has been changed forever, he will be a very, very rich man, and deserving of it.  He is a bald rocker?  I cannot get behind that, if you are a rocker you have to have hair.  He has such an ego that when Seqrist blurted it out, he was shocked.  I feel sorry for his overweight wife and her insecurities.  At one point earlier in the AI season,  he did a song that he felt was proper, about trying to be loyal to his wife, and all things associated with sudden stardom.  You guys take this far to seriously, the American people vote, and we have only been wrong once, when Rubin beat out Clay, I could not believe that, still don't. I was glad to see him go, he needed to be taken down at least a notch.  He got too confident, and last week and this week, he got beaten out.  Get over it.
Sorry disgruntled Chris fan.
You will get over it.
I just saw an interview with Chris from AI
on our local Fox news.  Everyone was figuring he was going to win and he was supposed to fly home tonight and there were going to parties all over town tomorrow.  Anyway, he couldn't get out a complete sentence that didn't have "well you know" in it.  Articulate he isn't. 
Musically, it should have been Chris.

He was exceptionally talented.  I like Elliott and Taylor, too, but Chris was amazing and even Simon knew it.  Kat is getting by on being cute.  Her voice is weak and she is often out of tune.  She can work the camera and that is what many of the young female stars having going for them nowdays, i.e., Brittney Spears and Jessica Simpson.  Mediocre talent and sex.  That's what they are about.  It's a darn shame. I think Kat should go and should have gone a long long time ago.

Chris I am not trying to be rude sm
to you but because you are an optometrist (which is not a medical doctor) you are not qualified to be a MT editor..........unless you can do this for an ophthalmologist. Even then would be qualified? I doubt it. Could you really go through ophtalmology operative reports and correct them. I understand what you are trying to do and its not a bad idea, I just don't think you are going to find anything that you are looking for, much less with benefits.

It kind of reminds me of people I use to get who would apply for jobs and think they could do this because they were a "nurse." I can tell you from experience it doesn't work and they don't have the same grasp of medical terminology that an experienced working MT has. I wish you well though in whatever you do to get that group insurance. That is a big factor in everybody's profession these days. If you can qualify for insurance on your own its so expensive nobody can afford it.
Chris - a suggestion for you (sm)
A better idea might be to see whether there are insurance companies that could use your services and special knowledge to do things like review claims, evaluate medical necessity and quality of services provided, etc. Of course, I'm referring to claims in related to eye care.

Insurance companies utilize nurse-specialists (e.g., neonatal) to review certain types of claims, so I can't see why they wouldn't use someone with your training.

Just an idea.
Chris was great last night . .
I hate to say it by Simon is always right.  Paula should let him speak without getting punched.  Let him be the guy you love to hate.
Yep NC has 4 in it, but Chris is almost a neighbor, didn't
know him though. 
Elliot and Taylor, oh and what about Chris?
They are all great! It is for sure a man this year!
They do need to learn some dance moves though!
Still love Chris - he is fine....don't tell my DH I said that!
Favorites - Chris and Mandisa!
Least favorite - Taylor. His seizures/tremors are getting old and I agree he needs another makeover!
Chris and Kellie are my favorites!
Agreed. Chris WOWED me tho!
I was amazed at how great his voice really is. I would have bought that song if he recorded it! Sad to say, I think Taylor should pray he is not sent home.
Chris has had some awesome performances, just...
not lately.  My husband and I think Taylor is great.  I don't see him winning it all, but he is very entertaining.
That is total bullcrap that Chris got

What a total shock!!!!  I can't believe he is going home.  Chris rocked the house.  I actually predicted him to win!!!!  How sad.  I guess my vote now turns towards Taylor. 

Chris fans are saying in numbers that they
I would normally mark that off to sour grapes, but there were quite a few people all saying that when they called his number, her voice came on saying "thank you for voting for me" and a few said they thought they dialed wrong so checked again and redialed only to get her voice again.

A few people are saying that Ryan announced the wrong no. for Chris, but that's not true, I guess. Some people got through fine on his line, but others got Katharine's, almost as though some lines got crossed. However, Fox has not addressed this and so far, it is merely the word of these fans so I highly doubt they will do anything about it, and I doubt even more that they would bring Chris back over it. They'd have to have some kind of proof that the lines were crossed and since other people got through just fine, I don't see how they could.

I loved Chris and am sorry he's gone, but we haven't heard the last of him and he's probably better off not being tied down with AI to have to make CDs that they want him to make. I think that would be hard for him to have to record a CD full of bubblegum music when he loves rock so much.
who did chris sing with? They could have been twins...
Never caught the name of the group, but Chris sure did sing better then the lead singer. LOL.
Anyone watch Brady - Chris and Adrienne on A&E

Chris is a hometown boy, but I haven't been keeping
up with it. 
Chris is DA BOMB! Hope he wins.
Taylor, Chris, or Mandisa..can't decide.
Chris is a boring one-trick pony. (nt)

I lost interest when Chris left . . .
but of the two I think Katherine is the "whole package". As far as being inconsistent, she's a young amateur, get her in the studio and a couple years experience and I think she'll be pretty darn good. Kelly has greatly improved over the years.
Actually, Chris said in an interview he shaved his head because sm

he was going bald.  Her version of Walk the Line was actually taken from Live's version.   I loved it.  Live has always been one of my favorite bands.  Chris rocks, too!

I'm ready for Bucky to go, too. I think Chris really took it to the next level last night and I
thought Mandisa was fabulous!  Thought it was funny how these kids really weren't even familiar with Barry Manilow, guess I'm showing my age.
Who doesn't love Chris on AI. I haven't been watching AI
but Chris is a hometown boy and there are clips of him on the news all the time and articles in the paper, clips of the other contestants as well on the local Fox channel.   I happened to walk through the den where my son was watching AI when Chris performed.  I thought the song was horrible and he was even worse.  All I could think was I sure hope he doesn't win.  They keep playing the clip where he sang the Johnny Cash song and I thought his version was horrendous.   He is a rocker obviously and screams, but you can't really hear the words and with the music so loud and screaming even I could probably sing (and I am horrible).   I like Taylor ? (the guy with the gray hair). 
I think Chris is fabulous as long as I like the song he sing, LOL
The Queen one tonight was over the line for me, though I'm sure he did it well for those who enjoy a song like that.
I voted on both of Chris' numbers and got his voice both times.
What is the name of the group that Chris sang with? Great song! nm
In total agreement, Chris and ManDIVA rule, Taylor

All Chris did was cover the band Live's cover of the song. He
didn't do anything special.
Kellie, Chris, Paris - bye Kellie (I hope) - NM
