Got Something to Add?
i will no longer be watching this show
Crystal should have won this hands down
Lee cannot sing, has no personality, no charisma, nada!
She is a star, a true artist. The real thing.
America, you missed the boat. Again!
I don't like crystal, the way she sings has a annoying vocie . I don't like it or get it. Simon comparing her to Kelly clarkson, she is no Clarkson. Clarkson is way beter. Also, I really hate her attitude. I don't like it she comes off of being kind of like a brat who doesn''t care about anyone but herself. Everytime she is on, my tv is switch until she is over. The way she sings just annoys the hell out of me. If she wins, I hope not, she won't be my idol and will flop faster thn you can say Taylor Hicks!!!
To those who noticed the forgotten lyrics - a true star can cover that well and she did. It happens ALL the time even to the greats when performing for live audiences and the really talented artists are the ones who handle it well. I noticed it myself, but have to hand it to her for handling so well! Crystal is the most exciting new talent this show, and America, has seen in a LONG time.
Hope you are well.. I'm hunkered down in law school as you know, and just wish I had more time to visit with you on your oh-so-cool-blog...
Just wanted to say thank-you as always for consistently posting the audio mp3 files for all the live Idol performances.. MUCH APPRECIATED.
P.S. I've been clicking through from your pages to buy my favorite performances on video on iTunes, as well as some of the studio performances on iTunes
(...hoping you get a little cut of all those purchases, which would be another way to say THANK YOU for the free d/l's of the mp3 live perf.s you give us!)
take care, LRT
PS. Bowersox rocks! Crystal ftw!
and of course, nostalgia from last season: Rock the bosom ;)
Crystal is far the best singer. Whether that will guarantee a win is debatable. She may not appeal to the teens who most closely will align with Siobhan. That said, In the interest of disclosure must say that Crystal comes from my hometown (well close enough anyway). If you ever heard her sing in a bar setting or <a href="http://chicagoacoustic.net/podcasts/episode-194---crystal-bowersox.html" rel="nofollow"> underground radio </a> (before she was glammed up for AI) there would be no doubt who should win this season
This girl can do no wrong! Can we just call the competition right now and end this sharade? She's clearly the most talented and authentic ARTIST on the show this season and she's got it in the bag. No one can touch her, she's head and shoulders above the "competition!"
Bla, that was just sloppy. That digado w/e was dumb it sounded like video noise. She wasnt even interested in the song, just concentrating on the guitar chords the whole time.
Wow, she forgot the lyrics of the last stanza. And i'm sure it's not because coca cola is a sponsor that she sang that line twice. She forgot the lyrics, plain and simple. All said, i love it:-) I agree with Kara, it's sexy:-)
Crystal is a musician's musician. I love her voice and guitar playing, but her ability to arrange a brief performance in a manner that helps her supporting cast of musicians also sound really good cannot be overlooked.
Its an insult to crystal being levelled with Andrew..Andrew is boring..noting new..all Paula Abdul's song appeal....Crystal rocks!
I really don't care who did it better... I liked Carly and thought she left too early... but Crystal I LOVE... She is very authentic... she isn't trying to figure out who she is (cough, Katie, cough)... she already knows... her performances have been consistent and you know without a doubt, like with Adam, what you will get if you buy her album... I love that she is the first true indie performer to have a shot at the win... I would have loved it even more if Lilly were still in the competition.
Well, there's something about Crystal..it's the tricky combination of edginess and innocence..the dreadlocks and the sweet face..Yeah, I also like her..but I like Andrew better.
Cystal has that wonderful 'a' in her name which is her only vowel and vowels are the soul of language. 'a' is a power letter, corresponding to the number '1', the leaders of the pack. It symbolizes automony and self-confidence. I think her performance was original and quirky. Just a little left of center which made it alot more interesting than most of the other contestants who bordored on bland. And she can sing like a dream.
Crystal you sounded as sick as a dog when you were talking to Ryan. Yet you still managed to pump out an amazing performance tonight. Wouldn't say it was your best perfermance, but absolutely amazing non-the-less. Keep rockin'. You deserve this.
I think people are sort of expecting her to do amazing because that's what she's consistently doing. Others (cough, Katie, cough, Casey) are doing good for just about the first time, so it stinks that Crystal isn't getting any attention for her AMAZING performance while others are for theirs just because it's par for her to do so well. She is THE front-runner. Not A front-runner.
It was amazing.
Whoa the idols this year are bringing out most interesting instruments as part of their performance! didgeridoo now thats a first.... native Australian instrument used by the aborigines.
I think Crystal is great. But, I am annoyed with the judges saying that she is Current. She IS NOT CURRENT!!!! Lee and Siobhan are very current artist in my opinion but not Crystal. She is old fashioned. Also, the only reason that Simon is so hard on siobhan is because Simon knows that she is about the only competition for her besides Lee. Simon will do anything to make sure that Crystal wins and not Siobhan and it really makes me mad because he has done this before. Like with Carrie Underwood and Vonzell Solomon.
Crystal is an amazing and brilliant singer-songwriter. Music is her second language and her original songs is like poetry to the soul. She's way to good for AI. Check out her latest @utube...Just want to love ya before i leave.... its freakin' good
There are a couple of other great originals on youtube as well..like Holy Toledo and Sandman..and Finally Got it Right..and I think you're right Dennis..in order to remain on Idol she has to push the envelope on what she would normally be comfortable with..although I thnk that Simon can clearly see the talent there and probably just wants her to remain true to herself..and not worry about the voting so much..you know they will use the save for her if she does happen to get voted off early..although I can't see that happening
I love her "Farmer's Daughter" song and those on the Chicago Acoustic Underground podcast. I've also racked up several views of her club performance of "Piece of My Heart". With AI, she can't just be earthy hippie-chick magnificent because that's now expected. She has to be quirky good very quickly at the edges of her comfort zone.
her guitar playing is excellent,check out some of her playing on her original songs at youtube,she is an accomplished player,with a very full unique sound to her guitar as well as her voice..I can't wait to hear what her firsr CD is going to sound like..I think if she ever does get voted off early for some bizzare reason and she has to sing for the judges save...she should just say screw it and sing one of her originals..that would be a true "indie" thing to do..what the hell it's live,they can't stop her
The group Midnight Oil from Australia used to use this instrument in some of their songs..I thought it sounded and looked really cool last night,and crystal,even with a cold..was still head and shoulders above everyone else.And in a song with such goofy lyrics anyhow,who cares if she screwed up the lyrics a little,she stilled made the song different and sang it in her own style.
Actually I was never struggling with myself at all about what current music is. Like I said Crystal IS good music. If you agree then more power to you. But, just because she is good music doesn't mean that she is current. THAT'S ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL.... JEEZZZZZ. There are more current artist in this competition then Crystal in my opinion. Again that's MY opinion. I'm sorry if you don't agree.... i can't do anything about that.
Fan #!, I wasn't feuding with anyone. All I did was make a simple statement and you began struggling with yourself about what 'current' music is. It's really different for everyone when you consider people have different tastes and there are many different genres of music. When you love a certain type of music, band or artist, it should never get old.
I don't really label music as being current or not because when you really think about it...
Good music is good music...whether it's 100 years old or 1 day old.
exactly Lola and Jobe you made this bigger then what it needed to be. I'm not saying that not being current is a bad thing but the judges have always made it out to be a bad thing...... like with Katie Stevens.... but they are not being like that with Crystal.... Also.... yea it's my opinion EXACTLY as you have said yours.... so can't we all just drop this stupid and pointless feud....
So WHY do you make it sound like NOT BEING CURRENT is a BAD thing?! I'm done with this thread. This is just absolutely silliness.
No my point is that she isn't current. I'm not saying she isn't good. She is still fantastic. It's just 25 years ago or so she would be considered current just not now. The Beatles and the Rolling Stones are still good. But, they were current in there day in time and not now... Siobhan and Lee are your more typical current artist this day in time. That's all i'm trying to say and people go crazy about it... jeez people ur being ridiculous.
So dude what the heckle are you trying to say then?! Sounds like you're saying she has to be current to be good. But yet you say The Beatles and Stones ARE good but not current? What's your point? Cuz it makes no sense to me OR this Jobe person either. ANY GOOD MUSIC IS CURRENT MUSIC. He said it right. And the last time I checked "current" music played on radio stations today kinda bites. So actually you know what, it's kind of a compliment saying she's not current. Cuz she IS a breathe of fresh air.
No I really don't think I'm confused... or clueless. Current means appealing to most of America. That is not what Crystal is in my opinion. If you mean that Crystal is a Breath of Fresh Air. Then yea I would agree with you but no she's not that current Jobe. Sorry.... So if i'm not getting something then u really need to explain.... or i guess ur the clueless one.
I'm not being a hater. I like Crystal, and I agree that she is good music. But, good music is not always current. The Beatles, and the Rolling Stones are considered Good Music but they are not current. If this competition exsited twenty five years ago then Crystal would be considered current but not now. I just think she is getting special treatment in some way... but I still really like her. I just think it's unfair.
AND... America votes for who they WANT to vote for. Last time I checked everyone hates Simon so why would they listen to who he is trying get her to win? Give me a break and quit being a "hater"
It's really umm... kinda hard to stay "current" when you are forced to sing covers; especially from a genre that happened in the 60's 70's. She took an old song and made it new again in my opinion. It was awesome Katie Stevens is the ONLY person I can remember singing a song that was even released within the past 3 years and that was a Fergie song. So why only talk about Crystal not being current?
