AI 18 Spoiler Discussion Thread

watching the disney night sing-a-long thing, hopefully this doesn't mean we won't get a disney night for idol

 

but as for filming from home, it looks like they've been given the same tech as ryan and it's been looking really nice and it doesn't sound like they've been overproduced so i'm very hopeful (i don't even think they autotuned auli'i at all)

 

amber riley i guess had a green screen on hand, it was cheesy but it was great quality

 

lighting is key, ariana's performance was a bit pixelated...she was in a closet or something 

 

i like how they cut in some scenes from the disney scenes

Kinane said the discussion switched to the fact that “Idol” had momentum, and postponing the show didn’t feel right — or fair to the contestants

 

As if it's about the contestants! A girl who had dreamed of performing on Idol stages since she was a kid like Makayla would die to wait for half a year rather than performing in her own basement

The dream should be about kick starting a career in the music industry.  Nothing is guarantee the show will be back in a year.  Shows are cancelled mid-season all the time.

All of these sound like fake excuses lol

 

The pandemic is not fake and it is driving the decisions.

I don't think they'll cancel Idol - but they will have a different Judging panel next year at much lower salaries.

When you have a virus that is causing a pandemic, there’s no such thing as a fake excuse.  Remember that.

Wow everybody is coming at me lol?? I never said the pandemic is not real?? I'm just saying the whole "we want it to be more pressure so we're making it only four weeks instead of extending the season" is obviously fake to cover up the fact that ABC probably does not want to extend American idol?

But what else are they going to say?  They are not going to come out and say that ABC doesn't want to extend the show. 

 

It's just like when they proclaim every season that they are looking for the next big superstar.  When in reality everyone knows the show has not done that in years.

That’s almost word for word what the EP of the Voice said about having a reduced number of live shows and that was BEFORE the pandemic. 
 

so yea, it’s just PR happy talk.

I wonder if the songs the Top 20 are singing were the ones they were originally going to do at the actual Top 20.

Kimmy is singing All I Ask 

Overdone song is overdone. I don’t think she’ll do herself any favors with that choice. She’ll be forgotten.

She may not be doing herself any favors with that song.  Looks like the odds of her being cannon fodder are very good.
