American Idol VS reality


Recommended Posts

Post a vid of someone who has obviously made it in the music world yet would not " go to Hollywood" if they had to make it by auditioning for American Idol. It can include because of their voice, their stage presence or any combination.

Here's mine:

Simon: Joe.....Are you drunk? That was rather spastic and the arrangement was absolutely dreadful. I'm sorry but you just have no chance in this competition...

Paula: Cmon Shimon! Thash sho rude. Don't lishten to him **hiccup** Joe.

Randy> Yo Yo Dawg..dawg I aint feeling it. I aint feeling it Joe dawg.It was pitchy and kinda all over the place...sorry dawg but i'm gonna have to say no.

A.) Because Simon would say he is forcing the rasp in his voice.

B.) Because he looks like the love child of Biff Tannen and Shrek.

After leaving American Idol, Daughtry traveled the talk show circuit, which has become commonplace for non-winners as American Idol progressed through the years. He made appearances on The Tonight Show, Total Request Live, and The Today Show. He also appeared on Live with Regis and Kelly and The Ellen DeGeneres Show, in which he performed "Wanted Dead or Alive". In a later episode of the show in which Ellen interviewed former presidents Bill Clinton and George H. W.

Beginning on March 14, 2007, on every episode of American Idol's sixth season's results show, Daughtry's song Home, is played every time a participant is knocked out of the competition, as each of the losing contestants are asked to look at their own journeys. Additionally, on the final competition on May 22, 2007, he and his band performed the song live at the end of the show. It also became the song for the eliminating home team for the 2007 NBA Playoffs.

In March, Daughtry performed during the Final Four round of the 2007 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament.[13]

I just did a copy and paste job off of wiki B)

To be fair that had nothing to do with the American Idol judges and everything to do with stupid people voting. Even though I didn't watch that season I heard plenty about it. They have a new veto rule this year to avoid something like that happening again.

That still wouldn't have saved Chris Daughtry because they can only use that save up to the top 5 then they can't and he was 4th
