But you sang the praises of Jake Hoot.  Are you saying that his appearance, personality, and general aura are that much greater than Todd's.

 

See where I'm going with this?

Jake Hoot is a million times more marketable than Todd.  Jake Hoot has a pure tenors belting range that is extremely rare and sought after in the country genre.  Jake has possibilities. Todd has 8 children and a flock of Pentecostal parishioners who don't drink.

 

If I ever said Jake was going to be a star I apologize.  All I meant to convey was I thought he was going to win and he had a unique voice that could work in today's country format very well - and his personality and "aura" wouldn't work against him.

I have no argument. I simply made a statement I stand by:  Todd has ZERO chance of future music success for a variety of reasons.  His age, appearance, personality, cultish religion, and general aura don't excite anyone but maybe an over 50 excommunicated Pentecostal mongrel - and those who identify with said mongrels. Clearly there are a lot of over 50 mongrels out there who voted for him.  I'm over 50 but I'm not a mongrel.  I'm a Dalmatian.

Let me throw this out there. First of all, I’m not a fan of either Hoot or Todd. I think they’re both generic, and mostly displayed karaoke throughout their entire runs on the show. Nearly every season has a variation of one of those guys, which is fine, because this is what the audience likes. Anyway...I would wager a lot that Todd could more easily sell out shows in his home state of Mississippi than Hoot could in Tennessee or North Carolina, depending on which state he claims as home. Other than that, it’s about a wash.

Let me throw this out there.  If there's one thing in my life I've learned it's not to underestimate religious dedication.  Todd has a religious fanbase and I agree with your assessment of drawing a larger crowd in that single regard.

I disagree.  I think Hoot is purely karaoke while Todd injected a lot of passion and realness and rawness into his performances and I think there is a market for that regardless of age.

 

Ya know...it's actually kind of a shame.  You seem like a smart person, but your rose colored glasses for anyone team Kelly and disdain for anyone who isn't make it hard to take you seriously.

This is an internet message board.  No one believes anything anyone says - especially about themselves.  If I told you I own more than 500 hotels (mainly roadside franchise motels/hotels on main interstate hiway exchanges), I've owned dozens of television & radio stations in the past, promoted national & international concert tours decades ago before LiveNation & AEG cornered the market, own outright two full size cruise ships, own moorings and cruise ship docks in Miami, New Orleans, Boston, Los Angeles & San Francisco, own more than 600 thousand acres of land in 33 states, and much, much more you'd never believe anyone so wealthy and accomplished would spend time on an internet message board discussing television singing shows.  So - there's nothing I can say that you would believe.  But I'm honest when it's necessary.  Rich people have time-wasting passions too - and I'm one of them. 

 

eta - and I forgot to say - yeah I like KC.  But she does &hit that aggravates me all the time.  Her personality, heart & soul come thru in her voice and it moves me unlike anyone ever has.

To be fair, objective and unbias, don't care for either, Todd or Hoot... And that is regardless of what I own or how rich I am.

Blake calling out Universal Records ...again.  Blake is such a caring and a genuinely nice guy but I wonder how after 18 season he doesn't know TV is about the coaches.   TBH: calling out Universal is pointless....NBC made this arrangement so they could have that sound bite that says "Record Deal".  That's all it is.  Unless and until the network decides to throw some weight and money around to give the show some musical legitimacy, that's all it will ever be.

Hold on... maybe they’ll say something in the next couple of days that’ll say Thunderstorm ALSO places 2nd.

 

but if Thunderstorm really placed 3rd, that is likely why they didn’t announce 3rd place on air. Which is pretty stupid, just to have the new coach there really.

Iconic.

 

Curiously enough, she's one of the least liked divas here on IDF, according to a recent poll.

If they were fermented grapes, they could be wine - and if I drank it I still wouldn't be drunk enough to understand the rant/tantrum being thrown. Imagine getting so wrapped around the axel about a televised singing competition that you can't comprehend anyone you don't like winning the show. Yikes.

Wow! Congrats to her! They probably didn´t announce the runner up placement because the top 2 were from the same coach, which is stupid tbh, or they just ran out of time.
