On American Idol
May 11, 2006 - Is It Really Over? -
Last night I was stunned just like hundreds of
thousands of other when Chris was voted off of
American Idol. Lot's of people are angry and
upset and there have been a lot of reports that one
of the two phone lines was down for up to 45 minutes
but I can't confirm that.
One thing I do know is NO IT IS NOT OVER, Chris
will be the biggest star to come from American
Idol. We have set up an email list for our

- Here we are folks down to the
final four. Chris
Daughtry, Katharine McPhee, Taylor Hicks and Eliot
Yamin and none of them could afford to stumble.
In my opinion there were some stumbles but
Chris definitely did not.
I have to admit when I heard “Elvis
Night” the fist words our of my mouth were, “why
this far into the competition are they still forcing
these guys into these stupid genres”.
That Said Chris stood up to the
challenge and once again treated his fans to two
Performance number one was the
better of the two as Chris rocked the crowd with
Suspicious Minds which he said was his personal
favorite Elvis song of all time.
I really thought it was a great song for him
and his delivery was dead on.
Of the three judges Randy was the least
impress, Paula as always gushed over in and Simon
simply said “that will work”.
To me that really was the best compliment.
Anyone that can keep Simon down to only three
words and none negative has hit a homerun.
Performance number two was also
very good save for the fact that I just personally
don’t really care for the song he choose, “A
Little Less Conversation”.
Paula and Randy both loved this one.
Simon found it a little too soft in the
beginning to which Chris responded quite accurately,
“that is the way the song is sung and I wanted to
stay true to Elvis”.
My response to that is mission accomplished.
I am going out on a limb here
tonight picking the final three will be Chris,
Katharine and Tailor.
I think Eliot is going home despite that the
judges loved him tonight.
Which brings me to my final
words to all Chris Daughtry Fans tonight; get on the
phone and vote, support Chris with all you have
because this late in the game we can’t take
anything for granted.
The Numbers to vote for Chris
tonight are 866-436-5702 and 866-436-5706 or Text
the word vote to 5702
May 2, 2006 - 1 Million Times better then
the other performances! That was the
cynical Simon's comment to Chris Daughtry's
version of Renegade (originally by Styx).
To me it was one of his best performances of
all time. As he again clearly showed as a
performer he is simply in a different class
then the typical competitor on Idol.
For his second show of the night Chris did I Dare
You (originally by Shinedown) and it was simply not
as good. I still thought he did great but as
the judges pointed out his voice gave a bit further
into the song. Never mind that not another contestant
could even do that song, or that it was still one of
the top four songs of the night.
Once again Idol fans GET OUT AND VOTE for Chris
as soon as the show is over. Text it in, call
it in or what have you but above all VOTE. I
think Chris will not just sail through this week but
be the top vote getter as well.
April 25, 2006 - Back on Top! Tonight just one week after being
in the bottom two Chris Daughtry came back to his fans with one of his best
performances ever. After a coaching session that involved singing on his
back to better learn to use his voice Chris came out and blew away
everyone from the judges to the competitors and I would guess everyone watching.
When I first heard tonight's song was "Have You Ever Really Ever Loved a
Woman" by Brian Adams my first thought was, "if you want to do a Brian Adams
song Chris there are better ones for you then this one". Well when I'm
wrong, I'm quick to admit it! This was certainly tonight's best
performance in my opinion. I will lay odd with anyone who cares to take my
bet that Chris won't be in the bottom three this week. As I write this it
is now 20 minutes since the show finished and I still can't get through to vote
for Chris. I guess his fans are just jamming the lines tonight!
So why was he at the bottom last week when all the judges including Simon
thought he was just awesome? I have had a lot of emails this last week
asking my opinion on this. Well, I do have a theory so I will answer that
question in this weeks update. I think there were two major factors in
last weeks low vote.
First - Last week was melancholy songs from "The Great American Song Book",
well great or not I bet there is not one die hard Chris Daughtry fan that had
"What a Wonderful World" on a CD or MP3 player prior to last week. I think
many fans just figure Chris would sail through and kind of went to sleep and did
not bother to vote. It was just a pretty boring group of songs for rock
and roll fans.
Second - Adding to point one above Chris had the unfortunate luck to go
first last week. So his fans had to sleep through the rest of the show
(including the very off performance by Kelly Pickler) and again I just think of
lot of them were apathetic and figured he was in no danger of being knocked out.
So by the time the show was over they were off doing other things and just did
not vote. I think even the producers of Idol realized that and that might
be why Chris got to go last tonight.
In any event tonight was one great performance and I don't think we are going
to see a repeat of last week's elimination show.
April 18th, 2006 - The Softer Side of Chris Daughtry!
Yes our number one rocker came out and shocked the crowd and his
fans in a different way tonight. Not with hard rock but
with a soft touch. With tonight being Rod Stewart night (why
does Idol keep dragging our performers everyone has forgotten who
are ready to start drawing social security, nothing against Rod
but don't you think they could do something more contemporary) and
I think to everyone's surprise he chose "What a Wonderful
World". While I myself am not a huge fan of the song
or of that particular genre of music (call it soft pop) I was
highly impressed with what Chris did with it.
The judges were impressed, Randy calling it "the
bomb" in true dog pound fashion! Paula threw it all
at Simon stating, that she and Randy already knew how awesome
Chris was but now Simon would have to admit that Chris had
broken from what ever mold Simon had assigned to him. So
what did Mr. Smug, Mr. Arrogant, AKA Mr. Cowell do? He
took credit for it! Claiming that Chris took his advice
and it paid off. I'm sorry but I just can't see Chris
being true to anyone except to himself. I just think he
felt it was time to show some diversity and since Rod Stewart
would never be his first choice why not now? Further he
clearly stated how much that song meant to him because of how he
loves his family.
I would guess that Chris will pull the most votes tonight and
have no doubt, (nor do I think anyone in America does) that he
will be around next week, to again entertain, surprise and rock
his fans. Even tonight with a soft pop song you could hear
the rocker tones underneath the melody. I can't wait to
see what comes next! Make sure to comment on tonight's
performance in our new Chris
Daughtry / American Idol Forums.
