i went back to season 7 to check on who the winners were... nice to see my girl allison was crowned co-winner with kris...even though he edged her by less than half a percentage point... also happy to see crystal took it over that sham lee

what i don't understand in this "competition" is how they come up with different performances for people like aaron marcellus and creighton fraker...when they didn't even make the top 13...

Well they just pull a song out of thin air and pretend. As for how they rate it, here is what they say about it on their website:
Quote:
If you were eliminated unjustly in an early round, how can we determine for sure how you'd have performed in the future? The answer, of course, is that we can't; we're not soothsayers. However, after analyzing seven seasons' worth of data, we've found that the typical contestant's performance rating trends slowly downward as the competition progresses. So, we'll take your average rating at the point of your elimination and project it from there. True, if you were knocked out very early, you don't have much of a chance of winning the crown. Your week-to-week rating will have decayed too far by the Finale. But, a few of you "robbed" semifinalists will nonetheless find yourselves surviving deep into the competition. That could spell the difference between a successful career in the entertainment industry and a life in showbiz oblivion. Right, Suzy?http://www.whatnottosing.com/library/editorials.asp?id=27

Well, you'll have to get on their list of the people whose critiques they use to formulate their ratings then! ;)

see therein lies the problem...by pretending , they could be keeping in folks who obviously can't win, as their rating will continue to fall by "projection"...but they might knock someone out who actually did sing that week...poorly for one week, but whose other performances were excellent enough to allow them to go deep in the competition

it's all way too bogus and contrived for me... though as i said...i loved some of the results ::):

Well Camp Should A Been has wrapped. And surprise surprise, Jessica did not win. In a couple of nice turns, Elise made it a little further - all the way to 4th place, and Philip left much earlier. Joshua was the winner. :) The actual order of elimination wasn't all that awful this year, but I guess it was a little improved at the camp. Surprisingly, both "shock boots" (Skylar and Colton) ended up going out at the same time here as they did the first time. In fact, the only MAJOR difference was the WGWG winner finishing 5 places behind. Here's the final line-up:

1-Joshua Ledet
2-Hollie Cavanagh
3-Jessica Sanchez
4-Elise Testone
5-Skylar Laine
6-Phillip Phillips
7-Colton Dixon
8-Erika Van Pelt
9-Jeremy Rosado
10-Aaron Marcellus
11-Creighton Fraker
12-Jermaine Jones
13-Shannon Magrane

So what do you think of Adam as a judge?

I think he has the potential to be a great judge. But would he cave to the pressure or to TPTB and end up doing just as bad a job as everyone else? Also, is this really a good career move for someone who is still in the earlier stages of building a public persona as a star? I know that Any publicity is good publicity, but I don't see this as being good for him in the long run.

Of course, I'm not sure I would want to watch with my kids - I don't need Adam-mania in my pre-teens, given the other ways he has ended up in the news.

Can you see it now? They pick such an awful lineup of judges next year that we start reminiscing for the good old days when Randy was around.... :shock: Scary, huh?

I'm surprised it wasn't J.Lo - although I guess Steven is the one with nothing to lose by leaving. He was also the least offensive of the 3 lately - such a loon. Let's just hope they don't replace him (or the others???) with someone unwatchable like Nicki Minaj (who is reportedly one of the names being bandied about).

personally, i'd take one of either shania twain or dolly parton, and then give mindydoo a shot...just so she can express herself more than she gets to trying to compete with slezak on their idoloonie discussions ... i think lambert would make a great judge, but his career is pretty much on track...does he want to set that aside for 6-8 months of the year?

Still sounds like it's all rumor about Randy. Not gonna get my hopes up just yet.

I'd like to see someone who is a behind the scenes industry person on the panel, and also a performer who has been around for a long time. Dolly would fit that role, and I wouldn't expect to know about the behind the scenes person until they are on the show. As for the third, a more current artist would be a great idea. This way the 3 perspectives would really cover all the bases. I don't see the need to have all big names, in fact I'd probably rather have a couple of new names on the panel.

I agree that Adam would make a good judge (despite my reservations about him) and while I like Melinda Doolittle's perspective, I don't know if she can deliver it live. I'd love to see her get the exposure though.
