American Idol- who watches this show?
    #2736512 - 05/27/04 01:39 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

The most recent Idol vote tallied 65 million votes. But I have only met one person who has ever watched the show. Sixy-five mill- that's one in four people in the United States!! Who watches this show?!

As far as I can tell the show consists of amateurs singing crummy covers of songs that even sucked twenty years ago when they first came out!

Why do so many people watch this crap??
I'm baffled.

Nor do I. The whole premise just doesn't appeal to me at all.

Yeah, think of the millions of little brains that are being conditioned to like crappy music..ugh!!

Evidently the people that run the show have a little scheme where they sign the winners. The music industry want to control art and manufacture the next big thing and they have figured out the perfect way to do it. It's pretty damn sick when you think about it.

I listened to one of the winners sing; Thank God I'm not diabetic.

Do you guys know how big Idol is in Norway? Fucking huge! Everybody is talking about it in the media and stuff...
I think its ridiciulous, but I still see the final to see who won. Dude, last year, our Norwegian Kurt Nilsen won the international Idol, he so deserved, that guy can sing. But not pop, he played in a rock band before he joined Idol... he sounded so much better than.

Anybody here heard him?

Yeah.

But he also played in a band, really unknown band without record deal, but they showed footage off his performances, and that stuff rocked.

Now they ruined that... I dont think he enjoys singing what he sings now, but you know, for the dolo :smirk:

I saw some of that World Idol show. He's a good singer, but the only reason he won was because nobody wanted to vote for America - although she was clearly the best. There's no way that guy deserves to win a world-wide singing competition...

Dude, the american girl sang like any other pop singer... but kurts voice is unique... IMO thats much better than another Britney or Aguilera.

He won by default. The only two singers that were any good was Kurt and the American girl. His voice really isn't that unique.. he sounded a lot like Bono when he was singing the U2 song. It's a singing competition, and the girl clearly had the best voice. Btw, Britney and Aguilera are in completely different leagues (one can sing, one can't).

The kids watch the first few shows. I have to admit they are funny. I can't believe some of the early contestants really think they have talent.

That's 65 million VOTES, not 65 million people. There are people that vote dozens or hundreds of times. And I'm sure you've met lots of people that watch the show, whether they say so or not. It's also a good show for gambling too. Put money on finalists and see who wins the pool. It makes it fun to watch your opponents screw up.

I watched the show this time around. There are some singers that I liked to hear, but didn't like most of them. The winner (Fantasia) is actually pretty good, but I didn't really like anyone else. I have to do something else when I'm watching it though, because I can't stand Ryan Seacrest and all the other filler they throw in the show.

BTW did anyone ever notice that the top half of Ryan Seacrest's face does not exactly line up with the bottom of his face? The center of his mouth is not directly under the center of his nose. Really.

Ugghh, I watched the final episode of that show and it made my eyes bleed. Hearing the same old recycled garbage over and over again just gets old. I think Fantasia should have won but I hate her, those lips are bigger than my forearm and her voice is just sooo whiny.

Has anyone seen any episodes of Superstar USA on WB, now if you like hearing bad people who think they have talent, watch that show. It has actors as the judges and the white guy that hits on all the chicks is great.

Kia Ora from NZ

Haven't actually been watching it (has just started here) but seen a few bits of it.  Aside from my personal thinking on it.. I guess it really is just another selection for folk who enjoy singing - and that is whether or not I agree with the judes.
