  1. It was a hot topic on the AI forums, the last weeks of the show. People were asking what they should do about it or if anything could be done. Apparently, voters were getting confirmation texts saying "thanking you for voting for Kris" when the person voted for Adam. This started happening when they were down to the final three. Danny Gokey voters got shafted too. I havent heard an official announcement about this. So, it looks like nothing will done about it. They need to change the voting system. I voted last year for David Cook but didnt vote this year. I won't vote again after this fiasco.
  2. I think that the vote rigging was worse than what At&t is saying that it is. The last 3 weeks of the show, voters were having problems with their votes being given to contestants they didnt vote for. What a mess.
  3. Could Adam Lambert Become Queen's New Front Man? By Adam Bryant Mon May 25, 7:52 AM PDT If you thought Adam Lambert looked like a natural fit with iconic rockers Queen during American Idol's finale, you weren't the only one. Hours after it was announced that Lambert was Season 8's runner-up last week, widespread speculation began circulating that the 26-year-old singer had been offered a job as Queen's new front man. While that's not true yet, guitarist Brian May isn't ruling out the possibility. "Amongst all that furor, there wasn't really a quiet moment to talk. But [drummer Roger Taylor] and I are definitely hoping to have a meaningful conversation with him at some point," May told Rolling Stone. "It's not like we, as Queen, would rush into coalescing with another singer just like that. It isn't that easy. But I'd certainly like to work with Adam. That is one amazing instrument he has there." Queen recently ended a four-year relationship with Paul Rodgers, who was handling the vocal duties for the band. Lambert auditioned for Idol with Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" and instantly became a buzzed-about contender for the show's Top 36. His revved-up, glam-rock numbers and hauntingly restrained ballads made him the front-runner all season before ultimately coming up short. While the show has produced more pop artists than rockers, May recognizes that springboard it provides young artists. For now, Lambert must first complete the 50-city tour with his fellow Top 10 members, and the Idol producers, 19 Entertainment, will likely have first dibs on anything Lambert does next. May said whatever happens, he's excited to see what Lambert and Idol winner Kris Allen (who also shared the stage during "We Are the Champions") do next. "Both those boys are well worthy of big success," May said. "So it's pointless for someone like me to stand on the sidelines jeering. I'm confident Adam will make great use of this wonderful opportunity. I hope I'm there to see it."
  4. There has been a lot of speculation about this, on and off the internet. An informal, fun poll at a local high school had Adam as the winner. The majority believed he lost because of the gay issue. IMO, it was not because he was gay or perceived as, but because he was more flamboyant, less conservative than Kris. Other factors such as the obvious bias of the judges probably had an effect also.
  5. Thanks for posting that link EL. This is the first time that I have watched a video of Cats. I've seen a local performance. People around here sing "Memory" at graduations, talent shows ect. None of them have ever came close to sounding like Elaine Page or Susan Boyle.
  6. She's done it again. http://talent.itv.com/videos/video/item_20...mp=729064_123_1 I've heard so many people sing this song and Susan Boyle has them all beat.
  7. My parents used to say almost the same thing... in the '70's about Led Zeppelin, Kiss and RocknRoll in general
  8. Just watched video of Adam singing "Cryin", for the fifth time. lol I love his energy and his singing. Kris was just too dull for me. I will buy an Adam cd and hopefully a dvd.
  9. Thanks for the heads up. I will be avoiding Nashville from August to October. I live with a Creed fan who will want to drag me to at least one concert. Crossing my fingers and hoping he doesn't hear about this reunion.
  10. Cry me a river Who cares what she looks like when she sings like this.
  11. I've never bought an album by anyone because of rumors. I don't know anyone who has either. I've always thought the same thing about Jimmy and dispelling rumors. People will stubbornly cling to their beliefs no matter what is said to the contrary.
  12. For the first time, Danny was my favorite. His "September" was fun. Good vocals and performance. Loved his smile.
  13. Just finished First Among Sequels by Jasper Fforde. One of my favorite authors.
  14. Jimmy is hot in that cigarette photo. Love the way they are posing in the picture.
  15. I just watched that episode a couple days ago on the VH1 website. I had to laugh when that drunk girl was laying on the speed bump crying.
  16. driving through town today, I was listening to the local classic rock station when I heard "Hi! I'm Jimmy Page." Apparently they lined up some guitarists for a station promo. Jimmy has such a lovely speaking voice. Made a good day even better.
  17. I registered on Pandora and signed up for Led Zeppelinesque music. First song up, Kashmir.
  18. Maybe I'm Amazed is good. If I'm in the certain mood, I'll listen to Silly Love Songs. There are about a half dozen others that I like. Do they compare to his work with the Beatles? Thats a big HELL NO. Not even close.
  19. Adam is fantastic. I had my doubts at first but then I watched this video. It really shows what his capabilities. I've been rooting for Allison Iraheta but it's getting tough because her and Adam are both such good singers. I get a chill when she sings "Alone" by Heart. Simon gets my WTF sign of the day. Adam's version of Ring of Fire was great. It was different for sure but his voice was better than ever. I liked the sitar, which was the only thing the performance had in common with "Kashmir". Maybe the only two times, Paula has heard anything Eastern.
  20. I saw that one at Books a Million last night. I looked at it but bought the Gospel of Thomas instead which somone has listed on this thread. Lots of good recommendations on here.
  21. Thanks for posting this. Loved it! The Rover has always been one of my favorites.
  22. I don't get it either. Have they been asked to lend their music? Seems way too late for that.
  23. Thats what I was thinking when I watched the video. He looks annoyed, standing at the counter. Can't say that I blame him.
