Jason Yeager, from Grand Prairie, Texas [near Dallas] made it to the top 24!!

I have yet to see him on TV, as our Fox channel was out due to the ice storm this week.

But it was on our local news today [in Missouri] because he's been performing here.

He performed at our church right before Christmas and I've also seen him at the local diner that has "singing servers."

He's really good and I hope he does well!!!

This is going to be fun!!! [spinning smile]

Wahooooo! [woohoo]

Thanks for reminding me of his name. Now I know who to watch for!

You know, in case American Idol just "happens" to be on TV, and I just "happen" to be in the vicinity of the television. Because, you know, I would never admit to actually watching it, and if someone checked my DVR settings I would have to disavow completely the knowledge of how that show got programmed to record. Ahem.

I also deny for the record that I've picked any favorites yet. I deny that I kind of like Simon Cowell. I deny getting a little choked up when some of the contestants' auditions are so good.

Hee hee!

I've never been ashamed about watching American Idol. I love the drama and watching the singers grow as performers.

Having worked backstage in a major show makes me even more interested.

And now this! Knowing someone in the show makes a huge difference for me.

Can't wait for next week! [Smile]

Reasons I DONT watch,

1. Contestants that cant carry a tune in a bucket,,,BUT they are doing the best they can with what they have been given!!

2. smarty pants judges that think THEY are perfect in every way and everybody else should be too

3. I would rather watch paint dry!!

4. OR watch grass grow.

5It ranks right up there with garbage like the apprentice. ONLY one can feel really GOOD about the outcome!!

6. Years ago a football coach told me he wished they havd never started the state playoffs. ONLY one team feels good and ends season with a win(which is the win you ALWAYS remember the rest of your life)

6B. ALL the rest end as losers!! Without it at LEAST half of the teams feel good,,,and even more of those that kow they gave best effort and were over matched to start with!!

7. I dont like pretty contests and thats what it REALLY is!!

8. I dont care for any singing and dancing OR ice skating,,okay call be BORING,,,or at least uncultured!!

9. Shows like 'survivor' are alot more exciting,,,altho I dont like the stratigy(backstabbing) I do appreciate living off the land and roughing it!! AND the physical challenges!! IF they could find a way to be true survivors without the vote off thing,,,it would be the perfect show.

10. after saying all this,,,I WILL watch Idol NOW,,,just to cheer on TuTu's friend. ANY friend of hers is good enough for ME!!!

Don....I hate the "audition" shows because I don't like watching the "nutcases." I think that's what you're referring to.

Next year, just bypass those early shows. Beginning next week is when the "real" show begins.

I really like watching it from the point where they identify the top 12. Then it gets really exciting.

Well, Tutu, I'm right there with you. I'm almost, that's almost 51 and my husband is a few years older. We love it.

I accidently turned TV over to Fox channel in the first season and seen Kelly Clarkson perform and said wow. I believe it was the 3rd from the last show that first season. Been a fan every since.

I love to see these performers and how they develope into stars by the end of the series. I clicked on your link, I couldn't place Jason.

It must of been a night when I was doing two things at once? Or my mind wasn't working? lol My husband remembered him when I pulled up the link.

That is too cool that you know him. Lots of good newbies this year. It's going to be a great season. I don't believe that some of those people are really serious that try out. Come on, there can't be that many tone deaf people in this country?

They just want a few minutes of fame? Surely?

Congrats tutu!

I don't watch the audition shows. I feel sorry for the people that are SO bad. I never know if they're just really that horrible, or just there for attention. And I CAN NOT stand the way the judges make fun of them and laugh at them!

I have yet to see Jason on American Idol, other than a promo I saw early in the season. Our Fox channel was down last week, so I missed him again!

I think a lot of them are just wanting to be on TV, but it's amazing when some of the really bad ones say they've never been told that they couldn't sing!

Really, who would tell their friend or family member that they couldn't sing!?? [Wink]


Since we're in the middle of moving, I'll have to drive back over here this week Tues and Wed to see A.Idol!! We don't get our satellite up until Thursday!

Cool-thanks Lymetoo. I totally forgot his name, and was too lazy or busy to look it up from a previous post.

I usually don't get involved with Idol-but now I look forward to it because my oldest comes over for dinner, always good to see her, and then we all cozy up in front of the tube to watch.
Sort of like- if you can't lick em , join em.

I always tell them I know someone who knows someone on the show but I can't remember his name.

I do wish he would lose the peroxide splash though-it's distracting to me. Picky picky picky, I know. Otherwise he's got my vote!

Can't wait now for the next show!

Yes, the peroxide thing must be just for Idol. ...It wasn't there in December. [Wink]

I hope he can make the top 12 or we won't be seeing much of him! [Razz]

I had the same thought when I saw the peroxide. But it helped me remember who he is!

Oh dear, you mean the one there that was right in front of my face that I somehow missed despite seeing the post several times? [bonk]

The one smack dab at the top of the page?

The one that was practically screaming "look at me, I am a very obvious link, how could you possibly miss me"?

That one?

[shake] What am I going to do with myself? Is there such a thing as Lyme-induced selective blindness? Cuz if there is, I gots it!

That's great about your friend, Lymetoo. I am definitely an American Idol fan. HUGE infact, since my daughters sing and they actually got me hooked on it at the end of the first year. And we go to the American Idol concerts at the end of each season.

I definitely agree that the show doesn't really get started until they weed out all the garbage talent. I can't even watch the auditions anymore. Drives me nuts, but I love the show once it gets rolling. Tonight will be fun.

I do think Jason is at a huge disadvantage because they don't give him as much air time. This obviously isn't always the case, but it means he's going to have to come out hard and strong tonight and with them obviously "pimping" some of the other guys more, it's always a tough one.

I know you all will be pulling for him in your area and I hope if nothing else, he does the best he can tonight, since it's never fun when you get your big break and feel you blew it yourself. Good luck to him.

He just did "Moon River" and the judges were rather mixed on this one. Simon hasn't been liking much of anything though, so guess we will see. Too many others still not heard yet to say for sure. I'm not a "voter", but wish your guy luck.

tutu, we watched for the 1st time tonight.

jason did a really good job on IOWA'S Andy Williams' song!

he & 9 others got my vote; simon should be gagged; just get someone else on there!

he judged someone else; it was the magician and woman changing dresses 8-12 times; magician really let him have it; woman ran off stage crying! what a bully he is.

alot of good talent; loved the 60s songs since i grew up during that time! [Wink] [hi]

No, that was that Pierce guy on America's Got Talent, Betty.

Only singers on this show.

I'm ready for the gals tonight!!

Betty,

As Tutu says, the two judges you are discussing aren't the same people. As far as Simon, yes, he's a bit brutal, but very often he is pretty accurate. As Paula is candy coating, Simon tends to put a bit of reality into it if someone is not on key, for example.

Being a seasoned American Idoler [Smile] , I do think last night that David Archuleta and Michael John's were the big hits of the night. But yes, on to the girls tonight.

The David Archuleta kid is a doll, and has talent!

The Aussie...hubba.

Saw Jason. I don't think Moon River was a good song for him. He has a good voice, but I hope he stays around so I can hear him do something a little more challenging.

Tutu, I missed him performing again. My Russian massage friend called me during Idol. She needed help with a situation and I couldn't say to someone that has worked on me and helped me feel better for about 4 yrs, hey can't talk now.

My husband gave me the scoop on those I missed. I was on the phone for 25 minutes with her. Oh well, I'll catch up.

As with all of us, we do have our own individual opinions. I do feel that Jason will be safe this week since my best guesses are that the two that will go will be between Eze, Menard and Haley.

But then, knowing what a voting audience is drawn to is always hard. The biggest voters are much younger than most of us here and they look for totally different things.

Gosh, I just love this show. [Smile]

OK . . . I admit it, alright? I LOVE Idol. I haven't missed one show since it started.

I had to work last night, so I Tivoed the show. I will watch it tonight before the girls perform. So I will pay special attention to Jason.

And, I love Simon. He can critique me anytime! [Big Grin]

Lou, admittance is the first step in getting help [lol] in other words.......keep watching.

Jason's a cutie and a good singer, I didn't care for the Moon River choice though.

Either way, I voted for him [Smile] and hope he makes it to the next round.

I don't usually start any voting until they get into the thick of it. I don't know why, but I wait until I've heard them all do a few songs before chiming in my votes.

There is some great competitors on the male side this year. That one 17 yr old kid, can't remember his name, that they joked around with and he was on stage a long time, was too awesome.

Younger voters are going to be split between them younger guys this year. Many young good looking and good singing males, including what I've seen and heard on Jason.

It's going to be interesting tonight to see if the girls can stand out like the guys?

OK, Tutu. I just finished watching Idol -- the men (or boys, in most cases). I paid special attention to your Jason.

(Only my opinion) Moon River was not the best choice of song. Jason can sing -- great voice -- but he sounded 40 years old. I think there are a few other singers that have a better chance of being voted off than Jason Y (Luke or Frampton). So he may get a chance to pick a better song next week.

The young 17 year-old with the golden voice will not be the next Idol, even though he was blessed with the best pipes.

At this point, I liked the Jason with the dreads. And the boy that sang "JailHouse Rock" made me smile.

Again, only my humble opinion. Now, on to the women (or girls, whatever the case may be).

Betty, You don't have to vote for 10 singers. You can just vote for your favorite, if you want. You vote for whoever you would like to see go through to the next week. That can be one person, or more than one.

So , 'fess up --- who didn't get votes from you?

My picks to go -- Amy Davis and Kady (or possibly Kristi Lee).

So, we'll see.

Betty,

As Lou said, no, we aren't expected to be placing 10 votes although I do know that the younger generation loves to power vote and will put many more than that for their one favorite.

Basically as you probably noticed, they eliminate two that accumulate the least amount of votes up until they get us to our top 12. Then they will only eliminate one a night. The top 10 will go out on tour.

Keep watching. The show really does get addicting as they narrow it down more and more.

So far I agree with the two guys who were voted off.

Jason was good, and I like him, but he needs to come back as a real standout. Can't wait for the next show.

Girls were kind of boring for me-I actually chose time on computer over watching them.

I did send you a pm with this but for those that maybe also missed it, I will post it here too.

JASON IS SAFE.

Voted off were Garrett Haley and Colton Berry for the guys

Voted off for the girls were Joanne Borgella and Amy Davis

So the battle has begun.

What say you, TuTu?

Yes, Tutu, it's DEFINITELY the guys. It will be the last one I see before heading off for my cruise, but if by chance you aren't able to see it, I have a girlfriend from California that always asks me to do a quick review so she has info before the rest of the people. Hahahaha.

Let me know if you are going to miss it and I'll send you a copy. Keep in mind, it will ONLY be my opinions and they aren't always in agreement with the judges, but we have fun with it and our predictions.

Cathy, are you trying to rub it in about the cruise thing? Tutu, I do believe she is trying to depress us. Here we are in gloom city and winter.

I know Tutu is in gloom city, because all of my state's bad weather comes from Tutu's state. Warmth and sunshine sound so good.

Okay Cathy, one thing I ask. Drink a jumbo drink in the sun, looking at blue skies and aqua ocean for me. Make that a margarita. On ice, salted and the largest they have. Please????

Gosh Pam,

Not trying to rub in anything about cruises. Not in this thread anyway. [Smile] But seriously, thanks for the smiles.

In reality, I honesty am a nervous wreck and know that's part of what is causing me crazy symptoms.

But back to Idol, there have been some "leaks" about the ones judges did and didn't like as well as a song choice...but since I know many don't want any info out here until they have seen the show....will keep quiet.

Looking forward to the show tonight.

Cathy

Ahhh...silly me. Pam, I thought you had picked up on another thread about the cruise...so was being silly. Didn't see that I had mentioned it here since I'm obsessed with American Idol and had no clue why you were talking about my cruise on this thread.

Ok, so I can't even remember what I type on these boards from day to day. Ignore me. [Smile]

Well, it's quite obvious that they do NOT want anyone from Branson to win. Plain and simple.

They tried to do the same thing to Carrie Underwood because she was really a country singer. They lost that battle, bigtime.

Sadly tutu, this is one of those shows that speaks volumns when they don't give you as much screen time in the beginning.

I don't think Jason was the best BUT I surely don't think he deserved anywhere near that beating. Poor guy. That couldn't be easy having to listen to that garbage.

Aw man! I really agree - Jason got way short shrift. I thought he did well but I thought he could have blown it out of the water with a slightly different arrangement of the song even.

I hope he gets a chance to just really let go and belt one out so we can hear his good vocal range. Something a bit more uptempo than Moon River and with a bit more range than the DB song.

I have to confess that the little David kid had me in shivers when he sang "Imagine". Whooo! Goosebumps everywhere!

when david sang; paula could NOT stop crying it touched her so much; many great performances tonight.

tutu, i gave jason 2 votes as well as 2 others who i thought were exceptional and 1 to others; easy to eliminate some so i could give 1 more vote to those deserving it! [Wink]

I'm sure all those votes will help him, Tutu. I often feel that when you are the victim of Simon's bashing to THAT degree and it wasn't justified, that it wakes people up and rush out to vote to protect him.

This could be a blessing in disguise. I just wish I could see how this unfolds, but off in about 1/2 an hour. Hope this topic can still be here in three weeks. [Smile]

I felt bad for Jason last night. I thought he did a great job! That is a hard song to sing. And I thought he did a good job. It doesnt even matter if he wins or loses. He s getting exposure. He's talented and not to mention gorgeous. And he was so sweet with his clip with his son. I wish him the best!

Jason just doesn't feel in his comfort zone? Tutu you know him, you've seen him in his comfort zone, I'm sure. To me an Idol watcher and judge, Jason isn't showing me his stuff. Do you know what I mean?

He really needs to find his strength and let it rip. Simon can be so heartless the way he says things sometimes. That's Simon.

I couldn't believe Simon said what he said to the guy that did crossword puzzles and was a word nerd. I thought his story was interesting. Of course I would. I'm a puzzle nerd. It's how I exercise my brain. Try to do it, anyway?????

Tutu, tell Jason to relax and sing from his heart. Forget Simon, Paula, Randy and 30 million people are watching you. Easier said than done. lol

i thought jason was better than the other guy in back row.

jason did outstanding job singing his final song, and really brought it to life!


i felt really bad for the girl who started crying and couldn't stop; glad other gals stood beside her giving her moral support.

at least paula was encouraging to 1 or both gals. [Wink]

I was really bummed to see him go. Someone needs to inform American Idol that the people I cheer for need to NOT get voted off. Sheesh. I'm almost positive I sent a memo.

I missed the show last night. I've got it recorded to watch tonight. Sorry, Tutu your friend didn't make it.

But he did make it to Hollywood. That's great. He just needs to work on his confidence level on stage. More of how he presents himself, being sure of himself?

He is a great singer. Tell him to keep working at it.

Lymetoo, I thought Jason performed more confident doing his goodbye song than when I seen him perform on Tues night.

I tried to stay away from everything on TV and web about the results show, so we could watch the recorded show last night. Man, that was hard to do.

Everywhere on TV, radio, net was story lines on that result show. So here on lymenet I learned Jason was gone and then flash pix and story on the blonde and her emotional goodbye storyline on headlines with AOL.

Even though I knew some of what was happening, we still find it good entertainment. I'm still not ready to start voting. Next week I will start voting for some of my favorites.

Pam
