Posted on 01/18/2012 11:41:39 AM PST by silent_jonny
Diana’s butt got big too. She was a kid when she was on Idol. Guess she was on broadway with Ace in Rent or something. Looks like she had a boob job. She doesn’t look like a Disney Cinderella as she did at the start. A lot of past idols not there cuz they are on other networks or moved on. I wouldn’t want to be there cuz the chance that I’d fall asleep is great.
True Idol with his humble style.
Not our favorite singer but one class act.
I totally agree with you Patriotspride a real class act he is.
The ring was donated by a jeweler. Didn’t you hear Ace name the jeweler? It’s just like NASCAR. Time to change ball caps now for the next sponsor.
I was trying to think of what to say here, but nothing sounds right ...
Do you all know what a blessing you are to me personally? That's not something I can put into words. You thank me for doing this, but believe me it should be the other way around.
I try to say "hi!" to each of you. It can be annoying and repetitive, I know, but it's just my way of telling you I'm glad you're here and that I appreciate your company.
There have been times--particularly this year--that I've thought about quitting.
The only reason I don't is you.
If we're all still standing in 2013, we'll try this again, lol.
God bless you. And for a special few--thank you.
(I’m special!) :-) And so are YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!
I want to thank you, also, for making the thread so much fun! You and jonny are quite a team! lol
I watch the show Mountain Time, so I never comment. But as soon as the show was over each week, I’d run to my computer to see what you all had to say. Quite often my sentiments were mirrored here.
I appreciated the bi-weekly pings.
Kristen Chenowith was there? How fast was that cuz I never saw her at all. Tonight? lol
Thanks for hosting the thread!
I just read the last few hundred comments and I LOL’ed on every page.
Like others, I was horrified by Chaka’s outfit and her screaming. More screaming from that Holliday woman. E-gads that was frightening. More screaming from Mantasia.
I was away from the TV when the Freeper described Fantasia-Mantasia duet was apparently on? Too bad I missed that!
The ending, with Phillip...that was priceless. What a sweetie pie. I am so glad he won. I voted for him, several times...kind of like the dems do in real elections. Vote early and often.
I gather from the comments here that Phillip is ill?
Can someone fill me in on this?
Loved all your comments on the thread, ALL!
You’re all very funny!
I think the music has sucked since their conductor left to be on Jay Leno after Kevin left. Ricky Minor left and that was a major bad for AI. Whoever is doing their music now, it sounds like they are using tracks, not actual orchestra. I didn’t see an orchestra, did anyone else? How cheap of them to use filler musicians but not have a real orchestra. If someone saw an orchestra, pls advise. I just heard a lot of backing tracks and saw handfuls of musicians on stage and a few dancers bouncing around or hanging from scarves.
LOL know what you mean :) It has been a snooze fest this season. Well up until Aerosmith showed up and rocked the socks off the show. Simon Fuller needs to triple their flat fee for saving them tonight.
I am with you on Fogarty it was just ok.
The last thing he wrote that I really enjoyed was back in 1984 "Old Man Down The Road"The Old Man Down The Road YouTube
What a lovely post, Jonny, and now I’m bawling. This thread is the best part of the week for so many of us. I am not able to follow in real time due to work conflicts but there were so many times that I’d start peeking at the thread on my phone en route to home cracking up in a cab or on the bus at your hysterical comments. You are all a very special bunch—witty and warm—and I’m so glad to call you FRiends. As always a special thank you to you, Jonny, for making it all happen year after year. Keep in touch, all. xxx
I can’t tell you how much I like your pics, how you summarize with the song and original singer, your icon of your reaction to it, your summary of the judge’s remarks.
This is a terrific way to run a thread and my gratitude is bottomless.
P2 suffers from chronic kidney stones...and passing one is akin to childbirth, I hasten to add.......and I have experienced both...and I gotta tell ya...childbirth is a bit less painful!!!! ANYWAY...he has a stent in place...which means he needs a tube in his ureter to make certain his urine can flow from his kidney to his bladder without pbstruction...wheich also means, the kid has a big ass stone in his kidney that needs l;ithotrypsy or surgery to remove......so he does not suffer kidney damage....
There ya go :-) NO CHARGE :-)
Damn, Jon, no tears tonight until I read your post.
I posted a link earlier this morning...probably before the evening ping. :)
agreed...wish we had more threads like this throughout the year.I get some of my funniest laughing moments of the week on this thread
>>God bless you. And for a special few—thank you.<<
That is very kind of you Jonny. IMHO it is WE who are blessed by your hosting these threads year over year. You possess a unique sense of humor and style that, if there was a “Host with the most AI” you would win hands down.
I hope you keep doing it but I think we all understand how difficult it is to keep it up for lo these many years. Your reputation will remain sterling and burnished no matter your decision next season.
You and the people on this thread made me a better person (and I ain’t joking about that!)
Bless you my friend. May God watch you and keep you and yours.
(*dang it I made myself tear up!!!*)
Directors missed a pivotal moment of tv. SHOW US THE DANG RING! How hard to zoom in on this fabulous ring that we didn’t get to see? Their director to the woodshed w/him!
