Thank you. 🤗 I haven't lost my sanity yet, so you can say I'm doing well. :lmao:

 

Too bad you don't seem to like it. 💔 Yeah, it was surprising to see him there. :haha: He wasn't my pick to leave either.

 

:yes:. I have to listen to the other songs first before deciding my favorite.

 

- I remember hearing about it during and even some time after the season. I was like are people even thinking rationally. :haha:

 

 

That's always good. :haha:  

 

Aww I'm just not used to it. :blushingwave:  And I love purple more, but I suppose I can accept a green Crisis now. 😢  I couldn't believe my eyes. :dead: 

 

Ah of course, but I wouldn't be surprised if that one ends up your favorite. ❤️ 

 

Oh my. Well... people definitely do not always do that. :lmao: 

 

David Archuleta/Michael Johns: What are you saying here.... Archie and Michael are not beautiful enough? bye2.gif.7960d44992e1eeff806cdce1d9856c29.gif I still wish I could find the photo booth photos of the two of them though because those were so cute. :broken:  Oh wait, I found a video clip!

 

 

Seeee how cute? ❤️ 😢 

 

Adam Lambert/Kris Allen: I agree with your thoughts, but boooo to any nasty fans who ruined things. :broken: At least their friendship is stronger than that. I do remember some big fans of both of them.

Scotty McCreery/Lauren Alaina: One of my favorites! :wub: Yes, I was one of those that hoped they would be a couple. bye2.gif.7960d44992e1eeff806cdce1d9856c29.gif I know they weren't and lol I wouldn't even take those photos to be romantic, but... they're still cute and I love that they still support each other today. ❤️ 

Haley Reinhart/Casey Abrams: I really enjoyed whenever these two performed together. I don't know much about their personal friendship, although I know it it exists. :haha:  And lol at the fans convinced Casey is in love with her. :giggle: 

 

Lauren Alaina/Paul McDonald: Yes, what you said is pretty much true. :haha: I can't say much else, although I do know they are really good friends and I love that. ❤️ 

Lauren Alaina/Pia Toscano: I so remember their close friendship from during the season. :wub: I'm sure Lauren did view Pia as a big sister. I love that photo of them with Scotty and omg your gif reaction. :lmao: 

Pia Toscano/Stefano Langone: I don't have much to say and know nothing about the examples you provided. :lmao:  Stefano texting Pia during a concert? This is something we witnessed? :haha: I do remember fans shipping them together and almost forgot they didn't actually date. 

James Durbin/Stefano Langone: I don't have much to add but I agree with what you said and it's nice they formed a close friendship. :yes:

Unfortunately, I have a test this weekend, so I may end up losing it then. :haha:

 

Hopefully you'll get used to it. Maybe I can come up with something purple to make up for it. Neither could I!

 

I'll try to do so this weekend assuming I feel good after my test. :dead:

 

Unfortunately. :( :haha:

 

David Archuleta/Michael Johns: Hey, Michael was my #1 male in the best looking Idols ranking, so I thought he was beautiful. :haha: That was a cute clip of them posted. :yes:

Adam Lambert/Kris Allen: Agree about their friendship overcoming the toxic behavior some of their fans display. There are some big fans of both of them, which is also good. :yes:

Scotty McCreery/Lauren Alaina: Too bad they never became a couple. I haven't followed them much, but it's good to see they're still friends and still support each other.

Haley Reinhart/Casey Abrams: I don't know if there's been two contestants who share the same synergy and style as much as these two. It's usually a treat when they perform together. It does seem to be funny. :haha:

 

Lauren Alaina/Paul McDonald: I don't have anything to add but pretty much concur with everything written here.

Lauren Alaina/Pia Toscano: It wouldn't surprise me if that were the case. :yes: Heh, Pia is one of those women that brings out this side of me. 😢 :dead: Between this and getting kissed by J-Lo, Scotty has been very fortunate with the ladies. :haha:

Pia Toscano/Stefano Langone: I guess I'll have to post them. :yes:

 

The video of the two singing The Prayer with Postmodern Jukebox:

 

 

Video of said concert Pia was hosting. She mentions it around the 16:10 mark:

 

I believe Stefano dated Haley for a brief while, but he and Pia never hooked up which is probably a good thing because it would give me another reason to dislike him; I kid, I kid. :haha:

 

James Durbin/Stefano Langone: Once again, pretty much in agreement here.

Oh nooo, good luck with that! Ugh, I do not like the sound of these weekend tests. :( 

 

Maybe. :haha:  Ooh I wonder what this would be. Now I realize your avatars have been the colors of grapes (although purple ones are technically red, they look purple to me). :haha: 

 

Uh oh. Do your best and you will be fine! :hug:  

 

- Oh, I forgot. :lmao: But yay! ❤️ 

- Awww yeah.... I'm okay with it now, but maybe I'll become sad thinking about it again. :lmao: It is! ❤️ 

- That's an interesting point. I agree it's always great when they perform together!

 

- ❤️  Haha I understand that. :giggle: And I suppose that's true about Scotty. :lmao: 

- Oh, thanks for sharing! They sound great on this first one, but unfortunately I am not a fan of this arrangement of the song at all. :(  Oh LOL I see what you mean now about the texting. I was thinking it was a concert Stefano was part of and he started texting during it. :dead: That was sweet what she said about him. And she sounds great here too in the bits I heard of her singing. ❤️  I do remember hearing about Stefano and Haley dating, which seemed random. And lol yikes. :giggle:

I should burn my fan card. :dead:

 

In all seriousness, I didn't forget. My excuse is I was so busy studying for this upcoming test I forgot to post something about it yesterday. :haha:

 

Happy belated birthday to Kat! I'll post a tribute and reply to Denise's post later today.

Ugh, tell me about it. :/ On the other hand, it's probably best for me since I work full-time. 🤷‍♂️

 

I don't know yet. I guess that's a good thing because grapes are one of my favorite fruits, though I am more partial to the seedless variety.

 

Thank you. 🤗 The test is for my differential equations class, so I'll need all the luck I can get. :haha:

 

- :yes:

- At least they're still friends if it's any consolation. It's unfortunate they're not part of the Idol couples category.

- It certainly is! Now I'm itching to see if they've had any projects together recently.

 

- Thank you for understanding. :giggle: That certainly appears to be the case regarding him. :haha:

- The reviews were quite polarizing about their rendition. They did sound great. That would've been interesting if he did do that; I wouldn't put it past him to do it during a show. :haha: It was sweet what she said about him, and I agree with her sounding great in the video. Stefano and Haley dating did seem random; at least with the other couples it appeared they became friends before taking that leap. I never got that feeling from those two. What can I say? :giggle:

 

Assuming I don't drink myself to death after my test, I'll try to wrap up the Idol Friendships category this weekend. :dead:

For those who have come to know me on IDF, it's no secret that Katharine is my favorite Idol contestant. Yesterday was her birthday, and being the awesome fan that I am, I showed my appreciation by not posting anything about it. :dead: To make up for it, I'll embarrass myself more than I already have and post a tribute to the beautiful and talented singer/actress. 😊

Since the first post was getting pretty long, I'm splitting the tribute into two.

 

Miscellaneous Katharine Media

 

 Lip Sync Battle

 

Can't find any media for Shake It Fast. ☹️

 

Waitress

 

 

 

 

Last thing I'll post:

 

Country Comfort

 

 

 

I could post more, but we'd be here all night. :dead: I hope this tribute was enjoyable.

Oh, well then whatever works best for you although it doesn't sound fun. bye2.gif.7960d44992e1eeff806cdce1d9856c2

 

Hmmm. Grapes are one of my favorites too. ❤️ But why would anyone want them with seeds? :lmao: 

 

Oh no, differential equations sounds familiar. :/ :dead:  Math was one of my best subjects in school but those days are gone so I can't help you much now. :lmao:  

 

I wonder. 😮 

 

Ahhh I'm not surprised. If they sung it in its original arrangement, it would have been much better IMO - but they still sounded great vocally. Hahaha oh my. :lmao: Yay! Yes, that's probably why it seemed weird. I don't remember seeing anything between them beforehand. Not that we see everything or even close, but still. :haha: 

 

I could have sworn you said you don't drink but maybe I made that up. :dead: Be careful though! 

 

Oh snap, what's this? BK guilted you so hard about Kat's birthday that we're completely giving up on the current list now? :dead:  But happy belated birthday Kat and wow this post for her looks fantastic! "Yesterday was her birthday, and being the awesome fan that I am, I showed my appreciation by not posting anything about it." :dead:  I'll excuse you for it. And LOL at embarrassing yourself. I'm here for it (and it reminds me I have another crush to post 😐 ).  Yay, I remember these performances so well! Since I Fell For You, Come Rain or Come Shine, Bringing Out the Elvis, Someone to Watch Over Me, Black Horse and the Cherry Tree, and Somewhere Over the Rainbow were among my favorites and probably my actual Top 6.  LOL the smiley at posting Hound Dog/All Shook Up.  "For anyone who has three hours to kill, here is her entire Idol run." :dead:  I can only imagine how long a video that length would take to upload.  YAY her debut album! I am forever obsessed with it and all these songs. :haha: Wow, I might just go and listen to this again right now. But my favorites you didn't name are Love Story, Over It, Not Ur Girl, and Ordinary World. ❤️ I'm sure we talked about this on your contestants ranking. I haven't heard much from her other albums, so will have listen.... but hmm listen to these now or her debut album for the millionth time? Decisions, decisions. ❤️ I do know and like Had It All and Terrified. Ooh wow so much media from some other shows. 😮 I was waiting for I Can See Your Voice to show up. :giggle:Aw yes, your tribute was very enjoyable and sweet! :hug:

It isn't fun, but I have to work with what I have.

 

I know, right? Whose bright idea was it to include seeds? I feel the same way about oranges. :/ :haha:

 

Math is my favorite subject. :yes: Despite my reservations about the test, I'll take doing a bunch of math problems over writing essays any day(I am not an English fan). :/

 

Hmm. 🤔

 

Yeah, that's the thing with Postmodern Jukebox. I like how they take songs and perform them in some retro styles, but sometimes they don't work out. I suppose that was the case for some people with this one. Oh well. Good point about not seeing everything regarding Stefano and Haley. Maybe they really hit it off when the cameras weren't rolling.

 

It probably had to do with my rant about drinking and driving. I enjoy a drink once in a while, but I make sure I am nowhere near any car keys when I do. As for my test, I just finished it and know I won't get an A; however, I'm confident I'll earn at least a passing grade though I felt I could've done better. Oh well, I guess I can put the drinks away for now. :dead:

 

I didn't say anything about giving up on the current list! 😤 I mentioned I would try to wrap it up this weekend. 😛 With that said, at least someone understands. 🤗 As I mentioned before, I'm pretty much beyond caring about embarrassing myself. :dead: I sense someone else is coming up soon? 😮 I most likely will post my next one after the Friendships listing. :yes: That's not a bad T6 of her Idol performances if I say so myself. :yes: As for Hound Dog/All Shook Up, sure it was a bit messy, but I genuinely liked the performance and think it's underrated. I know about the video! Not only that, I can't imagine how long it took to make it. :haha: Regarding her debut album, I liked those songs as well; in fact, I enjoy the whole album after it grew on me. I thought about adding Not Ur Girl, but the songs I posted are my main favorites and that one just missed the cut. You did mention about being obsessed with her debut album in the other thread. :giggle: I hope you do check out her other albums. Unbroken is more adult contemporary, Hysteria is like a combination of both her self-titled debut and Unbroken, and I Fall In Love Too Easily is a cover of classic standards. The Smash soundtrack is worth checking out as well (I'm still disappointed over the show ending so soon :(). Regardless, I approve of whatever you do. :yes: I thought about adding her I Can See Your Voice appearance but decided not to since it's already posted in the thread. Thank you for the kind words about my tribute. 🤗 I was exhausted from work and doing some last minute reviewing for my test; however, I didn't want to go two days without doing anything birthday-related. :dead:

@Crisis Guess who’s going to be part of the all-star duets this season? :peace:

 

Ugh, those are back? :/ The All-Star Duets is one of the things I didn't miss about S18. With that said, based on this post I take it that someone who I'm a fan of will be a duet partner this season? 🤔 If so, I don't want to know yet. I've been pretty good at avoiding spoilers thus far, so I'll wait to see who it is when I start watching. :yes:

I've been pretty good at avoiding spoilers thus far, so I'll wait to see who it is when I start watching. :yes:

Ok, you’ll be very pleased. 😊

The main thing I know about these two is they were in the same group with Candice during the S11 Group Round. It appears, however, these two became friends during the season. Apparently, the two of them even dated at some point. Outside of these tidbits, I have nothing much to say about this one. 🤷‍♂️

I know these two dated for some time, which I thought was really cute. I guess I don't remember seeing a lot of interaction between them, but just the fact they were together was so cute. :giggle: And of course, they also sang in a trio with a future Idol winner, which is a random fun fact. 😮

One of my favorite Idol friendships! 😊 These two had a great bond. ❤️ I loved the pre-performance clips of the two interacting with one another. :haha: My favorite one is probably when the other contestants talked about Joshua singing all the time followed by him singing Hollie’s name. :lmao: The main thing that stands out was how visibly upset Joshua was when Hollie was eliminated; heck, he was more upset than she was! :haha: It was also nice to see the two of them together in the audience during a S12 episode. I hope the two are still friends to this day.

I absolutely adored this friendship between Joshua and Hollie! Jollie! :wub: They reminded me of me and my BFF, which is one reason I got to love them so much. They seemed a bit like an unlikely pair for whatever reason, but I remember several little cute moments they showed up of them during the season, like in intro packages or behind the scenes videos that I can't find now. :broken: But they were always so cute and I do at least see montages of them on YouTube. :wub:

Unfortunately, this is another friendship I know very little about. 😕 From what I understand, these two (heck the T3 for that matter) had great camaraderie with one another. Both guys seem to be friendly and down to earth, so it would make sense if they became friends during the season. :yes:

Trent Harmon & Dalton Rapattoni

I really loved the friendship between these two and forever remember how happy and excited Dalton looked when Trent won. :wub:  I also remember Trent appearing at a Dalton concert Meet & Greet (maybe the one right after mine) and I was sad that I didn't get to meet him too. :haha: Random. I wish I could remember more specifics about Trent and Dalton's friendship, but I do remember them doing videos and social media stuff together during the season that was always fun to see. The whole Top 3 that year was close. ❤️

You can pretty much copy and paste the Trent Harmon/Dalton Rapattoni write-up and apply it here, except replace “both guys” with “the two of them”. 😕 The thing that stands out to me about the three was how happy Dalton was for Trent and La’Porsha despite being eliminated. It shows how strong of a bond the three were able to form during the season. :yes:

Like I just said, the whole Top 3 this season had such a fun comradery and I remember watching videos of them together that proved it. :wub:  I don't know if I can find them anywhere, but they all got along so well and were so funny together. La'Porsha and Dalton in particular were so fun and sassy together. Oh and I found one of them here! Lots of funny moments in this to illustrate my point. :giggle:

I’m back to being a broken record, but again this is a friendship I am not too familiar with. Unlike some of the others, I really don’t have anything to add about these two. This is probably the friendship submitted I’m the least familiar with along with Archie/Carly. I guess I know very little about S15 friendships. :haha:

This may seem random, but I remember Dalton and Tristan being such good friends and still are today. They would always be so sarcastic and poke fun at each other on Twitter and stuff.  I think she also was at one of Dalton's concerts and maybe the same one as Trent? I just remember them hanging out often. Oh, and I found some of the random videos Trent and Dalton did during the season and Tristan is in some of them too, so I guess they are all good friends as a trio too. :haha:  The videos are too long for me to rewatch right now, but they are there on YouTube. :teeheewave:

Here is one of the two S16 relationships. I don’t recall the two of them hanging out with each other during the season though apparently the two liked each other’s social media pages or something along those lines. Of course, it was revealed during the finale that the two were a couple. I thought they make a cute couple and appeared to have many things in common. From the looks of it, the two of them are still together, which is great to see. 😊

I don't remember how much I noticed Maddie and Caleb's friendship prior to them revealing they were a couple, but I do really like their interactions. Their sense of humors fit well together and they are physically cute together as well. :haha: I wasn't thrilled about them as a couple at first (maybe because I loved Caleb and wasn't much of a Maddie fan at the time?), but then I got over it... so yeah, they are cute. 😛

Gabby and Cade is the second of the two S16 relationships. Unlike Maddie and Caleb, the two were revealed to be dating during the season, thanks in large part to Ryan outing them. :lmao: There were murmurs that the two together was just a show-mance; however, they still were an item after the season. As we all know, Gabby and Cade tied the knot and became parents not too long ago, producing the first Idol baby (to be honest, I thought Ace and Diana would be the first :haha:).

We kind of have to have Gabby and Cade on here because they are first Idol married couple and they gave us the first Idol baby?! :omg: That in itself merits them being mentioned here. I don't think I really knew what to think when I heard they were a couple during the season, although I loved Gabby and liked Cade. Maybe I was weirded out by it, but I got to liking them together, especially when I attended the tour that year and saw them interact in person. :wub:  They were really cute together. Cade also seems super supportive of Gabby as her career is blossoming (as he should be, of course), and that is wonderful to see. ❤️

The final friendship submitted for this listing comes from the previous season. Francisco and Louis were both popular heartthrobs who did a duet and appeared to get along during the Hollywood Rounds. If it were a regular season, it wouldn’t have been surprising if the two became closer as they would’ve spent more time together. I believe the judges had a side bet as to who would go farther in the season. :haha: I think Luke said Louis and Katy said Francisco. Katy won that bet as Francisco made it to T5 while Louis only went as far as T7.

That was an interesting topic to do, seeing that the nominations were listed instead of ranked. However, I think it worked out pretty well. I wish I had more to say about some of them, but what can you do? I'd also like to thank Denise for her contributions, as they helped me learn more about some of these friendships. 😊

 

I think this will be the last topic I'll do in here until at least the end of S19. I'll be making my S19 debut next Sunday, as it appears to be the day the semi-finals start. I'm looking forward to meeting this crop of contestants and giving my personal opinions on them and their performances. :yes: As I mentioned earlier, I'm still debating on whether or not to post it here or creating a separate thread for it. As of right now, I'm leaning towards the latter. Speaking of threads, I have an idea for another one, but if I do decide to go through with it, it won't be until after S19. In the meanwhile, I'll post some clues about my next crush some time today, so I hope this is something everyone's looking forward to. :haha:

As promised, here are some clues for my next crush. While giving clues for my previous crush, I gave some clues in advance for two people who may show up. I mentioned one was a redhead and the other an athlete. Well, the one I'm posting next is the redhead. More clues for this person: 😊

 

- Offspring of a former child actor who later became a director

- Dealt with some prehistoric creatures alongside Star-Lord

- A star, yet not a ranger, maverick, or cowboy (or in this case, cowgirl)

I know, right? Whose bright idea was it to include seeds? I feel the same way about oranges. :/ :haha:

 

Math is my favorite subject. :yes: Despite my reservations about the test, I'll take doing a bunch of math problems over writing essays any day(I am not an English fan). :/

 

Yeah, that's the thing with Postmodern Jukebox. I like how they take songs and perform them in some retro styles, but sometimes they don't work out. I suppose that was the case for some people with this one. Oh well. Good point about not seeing everything regarding Stefano and Haley. Maybe they really hit it off when the cameras weren't rolling.

 

It probably had to do with my rant about drinking and driving. I enjoy a drink once in a while, but I make sure I am nowhere near any car keys when I do. As for my test, I just finished it and know I won't get an A; however, I'm confident I'll earn at least a passing grade though I felt I could've done better. Oh well, I guess I can put the drinks away for now. :dead:

 

I didn't say anything about giving up on the current list! 😤 I mentioned I would try to wrap it up this weekend. 😛 With that said, at least someone understands. 🤗 As I mentioned before, I'm pretty much beyond caring about embarrassing myself. :dead: I sense someone else is coming up soon? 😮 I most likely will post my next one after the Friendships listing. :yes: That's not a bad T6 of her Idol performances if I say so myself. :yes: As for Hound Dog/All Shook Up, sure it was a bit messy, but I genuinely liked the performance and think it's underrated. I know about the video! Not only that, I can't imagine how long it took to make it. :haha: Regarding her debut album, I liked those songs as well; in fact, I enjoy the whole album after it grew on me. I thought about adding Not Ur Girl, but the songs I posted are my main favorites and that one just missed the cut. You did mention about being obsessed with her debut album in the other thread. :giggle: I hope you do check out her other albums. Unbroken is more adult contemporary, Hysteria is like a combination of both her self-titled debut and Unbroken, and I Fall In Love Too Easily is a cover of classic standards. The Smash soundtrack is worth checking out as well (I'm still disappointed over the show ending so soon :(). Regardless, I approve of whatever you do. :yes: I thought about adding her I Can See Your Voice appearance but decided not to since it's already posted in the thread. Thank you for the kind words about my tribute. 🤗 I was exhausted from work and doing some last minute reviewing for my test; however, I didn't want to go two days without doing anything birthday-related. :dead:

 

I feel that way about anything with seeds. :haha: Ugh they're so annoying. 

 

Oh, this is awkward, since those were my two best and favorite subjects. :giggle:Although we called it Language Arts and that was probably my top favorite, along with French, so I clearly like language. :haha: 

 

Ahhh, I see. I'm not really familiar with Postmodern Jukebox, but that makes sense. Yes, they must have. 😮 

 

I do remember that and that is very commendable. ❤️ I don't drink at all and never had any interest in it. Aww, maybe you'll be surprised, but at least you feel you did well. :hug:  LOL works for me. 

 

Yikes. :lmao:  I was only kidding, but to be fair, you did say that BEFORE posting the Kat post. :giggle: Of course I do and lol that's fine. :lmao:  I don't know if they are, but I guess they should be. :dead:  I need to think of a clue first. Okay, sounds like a plan! Yay, thank you. Ahhh I can't say I feel the same, but it's fine if you do. :haha: We all have those performances. OMG. I've made lots of video montages over the years and they can take forever.... but that's when they involve a lot of editing. It wouldn't be so hard to just put the performances back to back (if that's what they did in this one). Yes, I love the whole album too. :wub:  I actually did listen to the songs the other night when I was doing some things so I could report back to you!  My favorites were Unbroken, Burn, Only One, and Touch Me. I get those vibes from the songs as well. Sorry about Smash. :( I never watched it, but know other people who loved it as well. The Lip Sync Battle video was interesting, but I'm sure you enjoyed. :lmao:  I thought the clips of her in Waitress were great and she seemed so natural in the role. And Country Comfort is a brand new show? 😮  I'm not familiar with it but she sounds great on all the songs (and I also love all those songs). I was kind of LOLing at the start of the first video when she looked all shocked at the kids singing. :dead: I didn't know at first that it was a scripted show. Oh, well fair enough. :giggle: Aww of course. :hug:LOL well that is very sweet of you and I'm sure Kat would appreciate it. ❤️

Maddie Poppe/Caleb Lee Hutchinson: Apparently they did hang out a lot during the season and were best friends since Hollywood. :haha: They said it was obvious they were a couple and were surprised more people didn't catch on.

Gabby Barrett/Cade Foehner: I remember being kind of surprised to find out they were dating? At least I think so. But I got to really like them together and especially seeing some of their cuteness in person. :wub:  lol well they proved not to be a showmance considering they got married and now have a child. The first Idol baby! 😮 That baby is a true icon. ❤️ 

Francisco Martin/Louis Knight:  These two were among my favorites but I have no memory of their friendship and well... yeah, the quarantined live shows didn't really allow for much to happen. I have no idea if they became friends in Hollywood, but I hope so. And lol you saying they "appeared to get along." We need someone besides us two to fill us in on this friendship. :dead:  I think the bet was the other way around though... Luke though Francisco would outlast Louis. 

 

Okay, I found the video here (the bet is mentioned right at the start) and we can see them interact and perform together. 😮 

 

 

That was a fun topic and aww you're welcome for the contributions! ❤️ I'm glad I could help. 

 

"I think this will be the last topic I'll do in here until at least the end of S19." No.  bye2.gif.7960d44992e1eeff806cdce1d9856c29.gif But yay for your S19 debut! I look forward to your thoughts although I have barely any of my own yet. :haha: Ahh we have to stay in here to post our crushes. I can't randomly post one in another thread . :dead: Ooh interesting about a third thread idea. 😮 I can't keep up! But I'll be here or there (or everywhere). :dead: 

 

 

Hmmmm....  I think I know. 😮  My guess is Bryce Dallas Howard. Her father is actor-director Ron Howard. She was in Jurassic World movies to fight the prehistoric creatures with Star-Lord (Chris Pratt). :giggle: And I think the last clue is referring to sports team that are all Dallas or Texas based? She's also a redhead. What do I win? 😇

Yeah, me too, unless it’s pumpkin seeds because they’re edible at least. With that said, one thing seeds are good for is they can be planted and grown into new fruits/vegetables.

 

Unfortunately, I don’t feel the same. :haha: I don’t like writing when it’s an assignment and I have a minimum word criterion and deadline to meet. Moreover, I fret over what I’m writing and how it comes across. Other than that, I don’t mind it too much (seeing I’m on a message board and everything :haha:). I remember some English classes being called language arts.

 

If you’re interested in seeing some modern/contemporary songs performed in some retro styles, PMJ is something to look into. They have a plethora of videos posted on YouTube. A few Idol contestants have performed with them over the years, including Casey A. and Haley R. (which I’ve mentioned a few times), Vonzell, Melinda, and Blake.

 

Thank you. It’s nice to see you not drinking nor having any interest in it. Unfortunately, that ship has long sailed for me. :dead: I went all of 2019 without drinking, and I haven’t had any drinks since I got back from my Vegas vacation. I don’t know how long that will last, however. :haha: We'll see after everything's graded. 😬

 

Haha, I guess that went over my head. Hey, you were the one who said you had another crush to post. If so, I look forward to the clue. You’re welcome. I’m sure all of us have performances in that vein. :haha: I can see the point about how editing videos takes a long time. Yeah, it appears that’s what that person did. Did you listen to the songs I posted or the albums? I’m just being curious. Regardless, I’m happy to see you enjoyed them and agree with the favorites. :yes: Smash has a cult following, and there is some thought about people creating a petition to bring it back on some streaming platform. I don’t think it’ll go anywhere, but it would be interesting to see. I definitely enjoyed her appearance on Lip Sync Battle in more ways than one. I loved how she beat Jason DeRulo with his own song. She had another performance there, but it’s hard to find a good video of it. It was her dancing in tight leather pants; I’ll let you connect the dots as to why I enjoyed it. :giggle: The Waitress clips were great indeed. Of the videos posted, my favorite is the duet with Sara Barielles. I believe Jordin was also in Waitress. As for Kat, I would love to see her in more Broadway roles. Yes, Country Comfort is a sitcom streaming on Netflix. I believe it premiered earlier this month. Kat plays an aspiring country singer who is kicked out of her group by her boyfriend. With nowhere to go, she ends up at the home of a widower cowboy and his five kids and becomes the kids’ nanny. I marathoned it this past weekend and enjoyed it. The first video with her singing with the kids is one of the more poignant points in the series; however, I won’t say anything should you decide to watch. Thank you; I’d like to think she would as well. 🥰 I wanted to do my favorite Idol looks of hers as well if only to have another reason to scratch my shallow itch :dead:, but as I said I was exhausted and the tribute was long enough.

 

I’ll end the post with posting a video of her and the cast doing a singing promo of the show. I thought it was funny and cute. 😊

Okay, I found the video here (the bet is mentioned right at the start) and we can see them interact and perform together. 😮 

 

 

That was a fun topic and aww you're welcome for the contributions! ❤️ I'm glad I could help. 

 

"I think this will be the last topic I'll do in here until at least the end of S19." No.  bye2.gif.7960d44992e1eeff806cdce1d9856c29.gif But yay for your S19 debut! I look forward to your thoughts although I have barely any of my own yet. :haha: Ahh we have to stay in here to post our crushes. I can't randomly post one in another thread . :dead: Ooh interesting about a third thread idea. 😮 I can't keep up! But I'll be here or there (or everywhere). :dead: 

 

  Reveal hidden contents

Hmmmm....  I think I know. 😮  My guess is Bryce Dallas Howard. Her father is actor-director Ron Howard. She was in Jurassic World movies to fight the prehistoric creatures with Star-Lord (Chris Pratt). :giggle: And I think the last clue is referring to sports team that are all Dallas or Texas based? She's also a redhead. What do I win? 😇 

 

 

 

Jessica/DeAndre: That trio performance was amazing despite my favorite of the three being cut (though it worked out for her in the end). I was not aware of the two dating. I first learned of it when someone briefly mentioned it in the other thread. :haha:

 

Joshua/Hollie: I agree with everything here. The team Jollie shirts and the video of Hollie talking about Joshua crying at her elimination were my favorite parts of your write-up. :haha:

 

Trent/Dalton: That’s right, Dalton was your S15 favorite. It makes sense to want to keep up with him. :yes: I don’t doubt the T3 that season had a lot of fun.

 

La’Porsha/Dalton: Too bad about not me seeing the bond they had. Should I have the time, I’ll check out the video posted. The two did appear to get along so well despite being different.

 

Dalton/Tristan: Pretty much the same as the other Dalton friendships. Based on the pictures I don’t doubt the two had a great time together.

 

Maddie/Caleb: Well, I certainly didn’t notice they were a couple. :haha: It’s great to know they were best friends since Hollywood and are still going strong today.

 

Gabby/Cade: It was a bit of a surprise to learn they were dating. I think I remember Gabby was blushing and holding her head in her hands backstage when Ryan mentioned it after one of Cade’s performances. I wish the two the best of luck with their family.

 

Francisco/Louis: Oh, the bet was the other way around. It’s not the first time my memory failed me. :dead: I wonder if Luke and Katy ever settled that dinner bet. :haha: It was probably hard to do immediately because of the quarantine. As for Francisco and Louis, based on the video it looks like the two became close while rehearsing for their duet.

 

Aww, don’t cry. 💔 I’m not abandoning this thread. 🤗 I have some ideas about future topics, but I want to wait until at least after this season before implementing them. I look forward to seeing you read my thoughts. Yes, we can definitely continue to post our crushes here. We’ll see about the third thread; I’m still deciding on what it’ll be on. Plus, I’m still considering a Contestant Rankings thread in The Masked Singer subforum, so I’ll probably be a little busy in the Idol off-season. :haha:

 

🤔. We’ll see if this guess is correct or not. I’ll try to have it up before the first semi-finals episode. :yes:

Celebrity Crush #10: Bryce Dallas Howard

571616f1fd0edc9fa590a76e713fd47e.jpg&f=1&nofb=1 bryce-dallas-howard-at-jurassic-world-fallen-kingdom-photocall-in-madrid-05-21-2018-0.jpg&f=1&nofb=1 bryce-dallas-howard-rocketman-press-conference-at-cannes-film-festival-4.jpg&f=1&nofb=1 7JdCCaJKcEuTLLRIXn7CAsFlgh7.jpg&f=1&nofb=1

 

Clue #1: Offspring of a former child actor who later became a director

Bryce is the daughter of actor/director Ron Howard. He played Opie in the Andy Griffith Show and Richie Cunningham in the first few seasons of Happy Days. He later went on to direct movies such as Apollo 13, A Beautiful Mind, and Solo: A Star Wars Story.

 

Clue #2: Dealt with some prehistoric creatures alongside Star-Lord

Bryce stars in the Jurassic World movies with Chris Pratt, who played Star-Lord in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) movies. The characters battled dinosaurs in the movies.

 

Clue #3: A Star, yet not Ranger, Maverick, or Cowboy (or in this case, Cowgirl)

The Stars, Rangers, Mavericks, and Cowboys are the names of Dallas’ NHL, MLB, NBA, and NFL teams respectively. They’re a play on Bryce’s middle name.

 

What do you know, another redhead appears! :giggle: As for your reward Denise, the best thing I can give is vegan-based brownie points, or in this case cookies since there is no brownie emoji. 🍪 :haha: Bryce Dallas Howard, or BDH as I will refer to her from now on, is an actress and director who is probably best known for her role as Claire Dearing in the Jurassic World movies. She is someone who I happen to think is cute. The first time I noticed her was in Spider-Man 3 (which was her first major movie role) when she played Gwen Stacy. I found her pretty then, but because she was blonde, I wasn’t super attracted to her. :giggle: However, a few years after Spider-Man 3 was released in theaters, I saw an interview of hers in which she had red hair. Seeing that I had/have a weakness for redheads, I became instantly smitten with her. :lmao: What was even better was learning that she was a natural redhead and she dyed her hair blonde for the role. She may not be someone who is considered to be conventionally attractive, but that’s just fine with me. 🥰

 

Besides her looks, I’ve enjoyed her in most of the things she’s done. Although I was disappointed in Spider-Man 3, I enjoyed the scenes she was in. One of the things I learned was she did most of her own stunts during filming while being unaware she was a few months pregnant. I’ve seen Jurassic World; however, I haven’t seen Fallen Kingdom. I may do so should I have the time. The only other movie I’ve seen of hers was the remake of Pete’s Dragon, in which she plays a park ranger (I thought she looked kind of hot in the uniform :stealth:). From what I understand, she has received mostly praise for the roles she has taken on.

 

Personality wise, BDH comes across as someone who has a great sense of humor and someone who would be a lot of fun to hang out with. At least that’s the vibe I get from her in the interviews I’ve read and watched. However, things weren’t always this way. She admitted she suffered from postpartum depression after giving birth to her first child and was very candid about everything she went through during the time. Fortunately, she was able to overcome it within 18 months, and she and her husband are still together today.

 

As usual, I'll end this write-up with a few videos and gifs. The first video is one of the Wired interviews in which she answers the most commonly asked Google questions:

 

One with her father talking about her documentary Dads:

 

Last one I'll post. An Interview on Kelly and Ryan explaining how she got her name:

Bryce Dallas Howard:

 

A quick list of the ten crushes I've posted thus far:

Nicole Scherzinger

Edyta Sliwinska

Sade

Karen Gillan

Alicia Keys

Kay Adams

Margot Robbie

Jill Wagner

Sandra Bullock

Bryce Dallas Howard

 

I'm not sure when the next one will be up. I'll give a heads up when I'll post the clues.

Better late than never!

 

S4: I do remember Carrie and Bo being somewhat close. It wouldn't be all that surprising if Bo and Constantine became friends.

S7: I've tried looking for the dancing videos but couldn't find anything. I love the Life Is OK duet from Michael and Brooke.

S8: Nice to see the three of them are still in touch. :yes: Matt and Anoop being hilarious together sounds like something that would happen.

S9: I'm not too familiar with Casey and Crystal.

S10: It did appear the guys were close, and James and Paul would be no exception.

S11: They certainly were! :haha:

S13: I remember their duets; however, I don't remember them hanging out. If they became friends, good for them.

S15: As mentioned, I know very little about them, but it appears they had a strong bond with one another.

S18: Good to see Louis and Francisco are still good friends. I'm interested to see the video they did with Grace. Good to see Dillon and Grace are good friends.
