About mj santilli 33688 Articles
Founder and editor of, home of the awesomest fan community on the net. I love cheesy singing shows of all kinds, whether reality or scripted. I adore American Idol, but also love The Voice, Glee, X Factor and more!


  1. The Idol tagline for this week’s auditions is that they ‘saved the best for last’ – I suggest they don’t do that again. A more even distribution of people they are willing to consider as finalists may have kept the interest up…as it is, the first two sets of auditions seemed designed to chase people away from that part of the show. Nearly worked for me. ?

    Now they have this new *best for last* hype to live up to…and I still don’t have anybody who really caught my attention. Plus, I am thoroughly annoyed at the Producers, but what else is new? ?

  2. Yes, indeed! It’s all about the finalists, now. All I have ever looked for from the show is someone who will make the kind of music I will buy…and have tours I would go to. With the state of the music industry lately, and the genres that radio will play, the artists who plays music I like is never gonna be considered a Star, even if Idol could still deliver *stardom* – which, they cannot. ? They don’t have a big label in their pocket to advance the Not Payola to the radio stations, and Indie labels don’t have the clout or the cash to push *everything*. ? Expectations for Idol have been lowered for quite a few years.

    So all that *Star* babble just washes over me, not interested. I certainly hope anyone who gets to the Finalist rounds can parlay that platform into making a living at music, and I wish them good fortune, but that is up to their fans. I only do my own A&R, and my entertainment dollars ? go to support music I like to listen to, which is increasingly rare on Idol… ?…hoping to find even one artist on these *best for last* auditions! ?

  3. “I suggest they don’t do that again.”

    I’m sure they will honor your suggestion next season. : )

  4. I know, right? Who is writing these blurbs, and why do they think these are appealing abilities for an artist to have? Tell me they can read and write music, or they understand the uses of Iambic Pentameter for lyrics, or they have experience connecting with an audience! *What the what* do paper towel forts, licked elbows or hypnotized chickens have to do with music? These people have lost the plot. IMO. Of Course. ?

  5. LOL! And I have lost track of the number of times they said someone could win or would be in the top ten. I learned my lesson from last season. I will wait until the voters pick 6 and the judges put their 4 choices thru. Can’t see myself getting too excited about anyone before that. But fans have told us NOT to expect or look for “star” potential with any of these contestants and to pull for those who can make a living with music. That seems to fit everyone if they have made it this far. So I will keep my expectations in check and we shall see if my interest holds for one or two.

  6. I don’t think Idol ever delivered “stardom” to anyone. They give all the contestants exposure and an opportunity. And some caught on with the public and media or label and were able to work their way into high profile, diverse and lucrative careers. And I agree, that the business has changed drastically so working musician is now the goal for many. But I still think that most who make it this far can achieve that goal and that is a good thing. However, I will still need to wait and see if anyone really catches my attention enough for me to hope they can achieve more.

  7. A paper towel fort builder?!
    A chicken hypnotist?!
    And…a singer who can also lick their own elbows (while singing?)!!!

    Holy Cow! Best. Show. Ever. Can’t wait!

  8. Considering weve seen the best audition ever and the singer who will win it all and now the best for last I do not think they can feed us much more hyperbole without us doubting any or all of these boasts. I have gone through life never expecting to see anyone licking their elbows while singing.

  9. Alyssa is looking to be the only girl that I will like this year… Hope she picks some great songs! :)

    My Top 3 guys at the moment are…

    1. Alejandro
    2. Jeremiah
    3. Laine

  10. But fans have told us NOT to expect or look for “star” potential with any of these contestants and to pull for those who can make a living with music.

    What people are ACTUALLY saying is – don’t expect Idol to launch the big careers anymore. It hasn’t for 5 seasons now. Those days are over. The new normal is to make a living as a working musician. The Idol brand is no longer relevant enough in the industry. The show was already cancelled once. And as Luke said, they don’t know if it will be even renewed next season.

  11. HA! I was being flippant. I don’t care what others are saying or why they are saying it. And I certainly don’t take advice from Luke, lol. I look at Idol for the reasons that I want (my tv and my time). When it no longer satisfies me I’m done. I enjoyed Gabby last season because I thought she had “star” potential. That did not mean I knew or expected her to become a star. It is not that easy. But I found her interesting and exciting. And I was not interested in her because I was EXCITED about her becoming a working musician. That is the reality for most but the concept bores me as far as entertainment goes. I don’t watch because I want to see Alejandro leave his day job. Sorry. There are no gatekeepers on who and why someone in interested in the show. You watch for your reasons and I’ll watch for mine. If I don’t see anyone with “star” potential to me, I will tune out without anyone’s permission. But thanks anyway.
