American Idol Tour
Has anyone here ever gone to any of the tour shows? 
American Idol
I missed the first 6 minutes.  What did I miss???
American Idol

I think, BY FAR, the guys are better this year. Of course, I thought that last year too...Bo was robbed!

Anyway, I just love Taylor...there's just something about him that is genuine and warm, I don't know, I hope he wins! 

What are your thoughts? Who's outta there tonight? I think either Kevin or Will...sorry to say, cause they're both cuties!

As for the girls,  eehh...who cares? They just aren't...as Randy says...bringing it this year...nuff about them.

Ace is hot , Chris is just plain good ...but Taylor's still my pick!

American Idol
Taylor is something else - but so is Chris - he sang "Broken" like he really felt it last night. I am for either of them winning - as for the girls - Mandisa has it handsdown.
American Idol...sm

Ok, last night's show...

First, I can't believe that Kevin dodged the bullet and got into the top 12...but I'm glad, he seems like such a sweet kid.  Kinda figured Will would go, but I liked Gedeon too.

I'm glad Ayla (sp?) got the boot, didn't like her.  She was snotty!   Kinnik was nothing special either, so guess she had to go too.

As for Bo's performance, I don't know...he seemed kinda off or something.

Now it gets good...the top 12...who's your pick to win?  Mine's Taylor...or maybe Chris!

American Idol

There are only three left now.  Who will be the winner? amj

Any American Idol Fans out there ?
Brenna - American Idol
I was also very happy to see Brenna get voted off and the crap she said about making her own record.  She sucked! 
American Idol tonight!!
American Idol Results.....SOON

The results are in............who is leaving American Idol tonight?  We will know in about 30 minutes from now.  My feeling is that either Kevin or Kellie are going home tonight......I like Kellie, but she really doesn't have the voice like the others, and Kevin, well, he speaks for himself - CHICKEN LITTLE - LOLOLOLOL!

I see it coming down to Chris and Kathryn!!!!!!!!

American Idol--who are your favs?

 Mine are:

  1. Taylor (he just makes me happy)

  2. Mandisa (love her)

  3. Chris (he is awesome)

  4. Paris (so spunky)

  5. Katherine (so talented and controlled)


American Idol last night
How did everyone think it went last night?  I was again disappointed by some of my favorites.  I just love Mandisa and Taylor, yet they were not up to snuff at all last night.
I missed American Idol tonight.
Who watched American Idol tonight???
Cannot even believe that Bucky went home before Ace, Katherine, or Paris.  Ace cannot sing at all!  Bucky was not great, but it was definitely not his time to go! 
RE American Idol. In the past Simon has said (sm)
America got it right.  Do you think he will say that this year?  In my opinion, these are the two WEAKEST contestants of this entire season.  Taylor is very lounge-y and Kat is completely inconsistent.  She'll do well with one song and not the other.  I think Kat is more marketable and I think, somehow, Taylor made it in under the radar.  JMO.  What do you all think?
American Idol discussion on Entertainment Board (nm)
My favorite moment last night of American Idol...
I loved the moment when that Clay Aiken wannabe was given that razzie award and was singing Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me (much to the regret of my ears, LOL) and out walks Clay Aiken, the crowd goes wild and I'm sure the wannabe thought they were cheering for him.  LOL  I think he was truly shocked that Clay was there.  Nobody could have acted his reaction out!  I loved it. 
Local radio station is giving away American Idol concer tickets. sm
They're running a contest for 2 free tickets. With the entry, you have to list what you would be willing to do in exchange for these tickets. The best/most original idea will win the tickets. Any suggestions? It has to be something the person would really be willing to do. I really want these tickets!! 
love, love, love the show. hate american idol. this show is for real.
the only reason i entertained watching it was because of mark burnett and as usual he has such genious casting and editing. btw, don't know who anything about "metal" music but these performers make me like it. love marty and jd as performers. HATE JESSICA. susie is so nice and so emotional. it seems they all support each other and enjoy each others skills. regarding ty and bob marley, ty was excellent but he also lucked out on the song! bob marley was genious too and his music is very easy to listen to. i don't like 3/4 of what the others are given to sing but their performances make me love the music. dave navarro shines on this show, very gracious for the most part and letting the contestants down easy when they have to leave. he was great last night with brandon (?). sweet, sweet show. i am so impressed with everyone involved.
AI Tour
Just the top 10 Idols. If you can go, get tickets. I went last year and had a fantastic time. I'm going again in July.
Anyone seeing the Rolling Stones on tour?
I've always wanted to see 'em in concert - can't believe they are all in their 60s....but Mick Jagger still knows how to shake it!
Wasn't really one of the tour shows, but I did see Clay Aiken and Kelly Clarkson....sm
when they toured together. Really went to see Clay, but Kelly was actually much much better.
he is not American on what was an American site
What we post, jobs posted, and those who are posting jobs have no way of knowing it is off shore because he is hiding it - what a great way to get more of our jobs - not sure why this does not bother you. But as an American it bothers me

Idol top 12
Bo seemed very happy. I think he had been careful to look cool while he was a contestant, but last night he could just have fun and not worry about a cool image. I don't think Ayla is snotty, but she's not as good as Katharine, and she also has her basketball to concentrate on. I think Melissa was shocked that she snuck through. And Kevin was blown away that he made it. I'm glad he did. He has a wonderful voice, though the music he chooses isn't exactly pop idol material, so he's not the total package. Will and Gideon leaving was okay with me. I figured Ace would make it through, though I don't enjoy him.

Now there are only one or two guys and one or two girls I won't mind getting the boot, though in the end I think the winner will be Chris or Elliott or Lisa or Katharine. I think Lisa is holding back to wow everybody at the end.

Okay, I guess I'm one of the few who have never watched this show!  However, i just had a doctor dictating, said "Katherine McVeigh is gonna do well only cause she is so bloomin' good looking.  She cannot sing worth a hoot".    I cracked up!


Idol Fan
I think Chris was just as shocked that "Cat" of all people beat him out! She has always been my least favorite! My favorite has always been Mr. Soul Patrol!! Of course you have to love Elliott too! Chris will be fine and probably have a record deal very soon.
Idol Nothing New
Unfortunately, I think the show is "fixed" every year. They latch on to a particular contestant and you can just see how much they favor that one person. It happened last year with Carrie. A few days before the finale, an article was posted on the internet from a newspaper that said when speaking about Carrie, "the winner of American Idol" even though the final show hadn't aired yet. Needless to say a day later the article disappeared
I think Katherine is great if she sings the right song.
This weeks Idol
Hi all!  What are your thoughts on last nights performances?  I thought Kelly was just absolutely awful.  Although, Katherine should be thanking her lucky stars that Kelly was as bad as she was, otherwise, I am sure that she would be getting the boot tonight.  I thought that Elliot was the best by far last night.  Chris is my second place.  Taylor and Paris both did a good job. My final three are still Elliot, Chris, and Taylor. 
I agree with your Idol Fan!
Kelli has been needing to go home for weeks now, luckily Bucky was worse than her.  Elliott is also my favorite, has been since Day 1.  And Chris is also my second favorite.  Although I don't think Taylor has as strong as a voice as some of the others I absolultely love him!  That show won't be the same without him!  Hopefully Kelli goes home tonight!!!!  I'm SO over her blond attitude!  Elliott all the way!!!!
Idol this week
Elliott seems genuinely goofy.  I'd like to see the guys perform a female artist's songs after Katharine was required to perform Elvis songs with all the guys.
Dial Idol
It's at www.dialidol.com.  It's free to download.  I have high speed internet on my laptop but also have the regular old phone line modem.  It was so easy.  I just downloaded the program.  Plugged in the cord from the phone.  It pretty much configured itself.  Then when the show was over, I opened up the program.  This last week, they only did two lines for each contestant instead of three.  You don't have to put in the phone numbers or anything.  You just select where you want your votes to go.  You can split them if you want...but being you are Soul Patrol (Whoooo!) I don't think you will :)    It does all of the dialing and redialing for you after that. I just walked away but came back to check on how it was doing.  It also tracks who, according to it, is ahead based on number of calls, percentage of busy signals, etc.  It's been about 85% accurate, and Taylor has been on top every week.
Idol Tickets
Dress up like a major fan with Idol T-shirt and other accessories and stand in front of local supermarket with a karaoke machine singing some famous Idol songs, "I believe", "A moment like this"! Oh, c'mon, that would be good! lol
Wow. So Sad!!! I am not an Idol fan at all. In fact, hardly ever watch it. But a few weeks ago sm

I watched Mandisa (?) sing an awesome Christian song THAT I LOVE!!! I thought she knocked it out of the park. Of course, being a secular show, Simon detested it as it probably convicted him to no end........


I wanted to actually vote for the first time since idol aired, but I just didn't that night.  I should have.  She was voted off (so I hear) because she sang a Christian song?


Sounds to me like it's the best thing that happened to her.  Must be God's way of telling her no to be an artist in the secular world.  I hope she gets a Christian label because I will be the first in line to buy her music. 


No flames please. Unless you are a Christian, you will NOT get my post.

I downloaded Dial Idol this week
on my laptop and had it do my dialing and voting for me this week. I've never done that before but it sure was easier...and I usually need to be working every evening, too, so can't just stop and vote for 2 hours..or 3 next week.  I have such anxiety or this show. I don't know what my problem is. When I told my son last night that Taylor made it to the finals, I said "Do you know what that means?"  He said, "He'll come in second and you'll be disappointed again?"  Yep..he knows how it goes.  Obviously, I absolutely loved Clay and cried the night he didn't win. I didn't really get too wrapped up in season 3. I liked Bo and was disappointed but didn't cry when he lost.  This year, I have the feeling for Taylor like I did for Clay.  I will be so, so disappointed and upset at this dumb show if he doesn't win.  As many times as Kat has been in the bottom, and Taylor never, I will just not understand it if he doesn't win, and on the other hand I guess I will just not be surprised at all, either.
Elliott needs to be with his very sick Mom. Being the Idol would prevent that. sm
Besides, from what he said about AI being a "steppingstone," he's probably been contacted by someone big. He's going to make it, no matter what. I think being the Idol at this time would be too much for his personal life. His mother needs him now, and he knows it.

Idol chat board agrees - Paula was
wacked last night.
I'm in the same boat.. Sat on the idol website and watched reruns of
Update on daughter & local Idol Contest....
I am getting so nervous I am having trouble working.  She has decided to sing Sara Evan's "Born to Fly" as her first song and it she is chosen in the top five, she will sing Alicia Keys' "If I Ain't Got You."  Two totally different songs.  The elimination process has been easy thus far but now MOST of the 12 are good so it is hard to pick a top 5 which I hope she at least makes.  Wish us luck.
The biggest overrated Idol contestant right now is Kellie Pickler.
Yes, Live, his fave group - and the lead singer is his *idol*.
Billy Joel, Rascal Flatts, any of the Idol kids. nm
the american way
it's always someone else's fault. forget she was drunk, forget she was trusting her life to a complete stranger, forget there is no evidence to hold other suspects, it couldn't possibly have anything to do with natalee and her mother's bad decisions. or could it?
Might as well, they certainly are not the AMERICAN
They not only sold us out to the highest bidder, now they are courting the very people they gave our jobs away to.  I can't wait until this organization just self-destructs.  They have done NOTHING for us except take our money.  They are useless. 
are you an American???
you're kind of making a bit of a generalization here, the implication would be that all American workers are the same. I think you're getting a little carried away with the generalization and if you are American you have to lump yourself right in there
Yes I am an American
Yes, I probably would lump myself in there with the Americans that are lazy, as my expectations are very high, but I must mention that I am also a hard worker that does not come on this board to say "I can't make any money because the Indians are taking my jobs".  You say what you want, but that is just another excuse for us to be lazy.  Give up?  NEVER!  I am lucky in that my resume is packed to the limit.  Every job I have applied to, I get a response, which is pretty darn good considering these jobs are up for grabs to anyone in the U.S.  So, yes I guess I am lazy, because I will no longer test or take 6 cpl.  I will however accept 8-9 cpl because I do not have to leave my house, and the work is easy (for me anyway).  I already have two accounts that I do solely for myself (18 years of experience here), and I have to be responsible for all of the inquiries (which are not QA issues, they are archiving issues or STAT reports needed), keep my own records, make invoices, and also go and pick-up/drop-off the work.  Both of these accounts pay very, very well (I've cut out the middleman/the MTSO).  I am the MTSO.  So, yes, I speak from a lot of experience.  And, yes, I am American 100%, and yes I still think that sitting around complaining is not going to get us anywhere!  JMHO!    I have to hand it to India to be smart enough to get in on a good thing!  I guess they can't be lacking too much! 
Since I am American
My first concern is and will be USA jobs - If the India MT is getting screwed over - as you put it, then they can begin their own little MT riot over there. I for one will not worry about over seas workers - seems like our government does enough of that for me. I will continue to put my energy here on US soil. Sorry if that offends you - but I have kids that will need jobs at some point in the future, and if they go over seas I would like it to be for pleasure not work or war.
This one is American
born and bred and thoroughly grossed me out. I was lucky enough to get several of his reports today - sucking snot up his nose every 2 seconds. Say a few words, suck some snot -- gross!!!
They took American out of the name...
I assume because they offer international membership now, although I think they always did.
Well, there is no way American MTs can
compete with the rates in India. It will not be too many years before we are out of MT work in America.
Absolutely not - I am just an American MT. sm

Personally, I have no complaints with them.  I am paid on time all the time by direct deposit and no one bothers me. I work as an IC, do my job, and get paid.  I work on 2 accounts and contracted only for certain worktypes, and that was fine with them. 

I know all about the "India thing" and to be honest, I don't care.  They have taken our jobs, the hospitals don't care they want cheaper rates, so why fight it.  If you can't beat them, join them.  That is what I decided to do, and so far they are not so bad. 

Everyone has different experiences for different reasons. I am just giving mine so far.  If it changes or if things get bad or someone is out of line and arrogant, or whatever, I will be sure to let you all know ASAP.

I am not saying this company is for everyone, but it is fine for me as an IC part-time backup job.
