    The Wikipedia page for AI19 is sending me. :dead:


    Chayce Beckham from Apple Valley, California, won the season on May 23, 2021, while Willie Spence was the runner-up, and Grace Kinstler finished in third place. Beckham became the ninth guy with guitar (GWG) to win in twelve seasons.

    I might be miscounting, but Caleb never played guitar. 

  3. I feel like if we included semi finalists that would be too easy. What would you say were the worst idol performances ever?




    Paige Miles - Against All Odds

    Tim Urban - Apologize

    Lazaro Arbos - (They Long To Be) Close To You

    Camile Velasco - Goodbye Yellowbrick Road

    Sanjaya Malakar - Bathwater 

    John Stevens - Crocodile Rock

    Daniel Seavey - Breakaway 


  4. Who did you hate/dislike on the show, but ended up liking afterwards?


    For me, I wouldn't say I hated Phillip Phillips, but I remember not wanting him to win. But I enjoyed his music after the show and he put out some catchy music. In hindsight now I think he deserved his win-something I didn't think at the time (but to be fair you can think of an argument for  win for any of the top 7 that year). I don't "stan" him or anything, but I would attend his concert if given the opportunity.

    I wonder if this could mean Chris Young is rescheduling his tour that was cancelled last year and that is why there is a scheduling conflict. With all the tours/concerts with various artists being announced over the past few weeks, I hope Scotty is on some kind of full tour this summer.

  6. This may not age well after tonight, but if Grace wins, the first 4 season winners would be comparable to the first 4 of Fox Idol. Here is why:


    Season 1: Kelly/Maddie: The girl next door, consistent throughout the competition, not as pimped in the early rounds but becomes the obvious frontrunner later. Both 20 when they won.


    Season 2: Ruben/Laine: Yeah this one is probably stretching it because these two could not be more different. I guess the big similarities is they were the first male winners of their respective networks and the first all male F2s. Their respective runner-ups (Clay/Alejandro) had hardcore fans, and were seen as “robbed.”


    Season 3: Fantasia/Just Sam: “Rags to riches” type R&B singer. Both had the inspiring story with the big ol’ voice. 

    Season 4: Carrie/Grace????: Remains to be seen, but if she wins I think she could be somewhat compared to Carrie. Different genres, but both blonde girls with powerful voices. Also both with the “girl next door” vibe. 

    What do you think? Don’t be too mean. 😛

    I think that's what TPTB THOUGHT wanted to happen when planning the twist. However, they probably lost all interest in giving him an over the top "Im the underdog" edit after seeing the backlash the twist got. 

    I feel like the twist was planned around him. They knew since he was runner up that he would get a lot of votes.

  8. Do you think TPTB were hoping Arthur would be some kind of a “comeback story” where he returns and wins the whole thing? Would had been unfair to the current contestants. If that’s what they wanted, it’s fun to see their plan backfired. 😄

    IMO you're full is sh*t.  The Voice coaches have done far more their winners than Idol Judges have done for theirs.  The Voice' last 5 or 6 seasons winners are getting great support from their coaches - guiding them away from Republic to season themselves in the real music business world and find an independent road to success with coaches direct support every step of the way.  

    LOL who cares, its not the job of the judges to do things for the winners. And obviously the Voice judges aren't finding success with their alumni. Chevel who? And whatever happened to Maelyn? Who was the last winner to actually release an album?

    To be fair, Idol in recent years claims Tori Kelly & Lauren Daigle as successful alums, but neither made T20 their seasons. Idol just has way more successes. But if Idol acknowledges them as successful alums I don't see why The Voice can't do the same for non-finalists.


    I personally don't count Tori Kelly or Lauren Daigle (Or Todrick Hall) as Idol success stories. None were famous because of Idol. Same with Morgan Wallen for The Voice. I would also say the same about Daniel Seavey.

    But what success stories has Idol had since The Voice has been on?  And if people say Gabby Barrett, then Morgan Wallen needs to be included.


    Kelly, Carrie competed on Idol at a time when there was no TV competition and the industry was very different.

    Morgan Wallen isn't even famous because of being on The Voice. The Voice had nothing to do with his success. He got signed years after appearing on that show. I bet the average Voice viewer wouldn't even remember him from that show.

    Idol became a success with a simple & pure 3 step formula: 

    1. Make the show about the singers talent. 

    2. Analyze the talent with Judges critiques.

    3. Give the public the final vote to choose it's winners.  


    The Voice came along with a different formula that focuses on the coaches chemistry and beat Idol in the ratings.  And Idol lost it's soul chasing The Voice formula.  Nothing has changed with American Idol Season 19.  It's still on a foreign path far from it's successful original formula.  It's still chasing The Voice - and the chemistry between the Idol Judges still smells like a WWE wrestling match.

    Nobody cares about The Voice anymore. And who cares what the "coaches" do with them after the show, obviously they didn't make them into success stories. The Voice and ABC Idol have had very similar ratings, and the Idol finale had higher ratings than The Voice finale last year. And Idol has been beating them off and on.


    Ouch, The Voice had multiple episodes below 1.0 last season...and they premiered the same as Idol at a 1.2.

    I never said it was doing poorly, I just said it was doing worse than the Voice. 😉 Also, you have to understand that the amount of people watching television has changed dramatically over the years. 

    Actually, the ratings between the two shows have been very similar the past few seasons. Idol beat The Voice a few times over the past few years, including a few of the finales. The Idol finale in 2020 got a 1.0 in the demo and the Voice got a 0.9. Like I said, very similar, but the Voice doesn't always beat it.

  14. I know her, we grew up in the same town. Its been at least 6 years since I have actually seen her though. She has a potential "sob story" so it will be interesting to see if they actually talk about this. Our families know each other very well. Kinda surreal to see her on here with a fan thread just because I know her. My sister used to be good friends with her so she was always over at our house.

    Scotty's had some chart success, but he has never morphed into a big Country star.  To be an effective mentor, you need to have a broad knowledge and appreciation of different music genres.  Scotty has never shown that.

    Adam Lambert mentored in Season 9 after being off the show for not even a year. He hadn’t been established yet. So if anything Scotty can give the perspective of a former idol contestant and someone who has been in their shoes.
