hey check out my survey, please Vote. I appreciate it, thanks.
location: South Berwick, Maine
what first drew you to american idol ?Well I first watched the "Big Band" episode of American Idol, and I fell in love with Kelly Clarkson, so I continued to watch the rest of the season to hear her, and from there on I was hooked and have watched all three seasons.
did you watch both seasons ?Yup all three
which did you like better? why?My favorite season was the second season. I thought it included a lot of great singers that were different and didn't look like models. The first season to me didn't have as many talented singers and the third season had so many surprised that it seemed like American Idol was just trying to get higher ratings.
which idol did you like better, kelly clarkson or ruben studdard ?
Kelly Clarkson, I just love her voice and personality, and I am in love with her Cd "Thankful." Ruben however is very good, just seems a bit boring to me.
In the first season, who was your favorite? why? Kelly Clarkson, when I first saw her I thought she was so cute with her bubbly personality and then she opened her mouth to sing, and she amazed me.
Between Justin Guarini and Kelly Clarkson, who did you want to be the American Idol ? why? Kelly she in my opinion had a much stronger voice than Justin, and was really set on to win the American Idol crown.
In the second season, who was your favorite? why? Clay, his voice just shocked me! He is just one of those singers that puts chills up my spine when I hear him sing.
Between Clay Aiken and Ruben Studdard, who did you want to be the American Idol ? why? Clay because I had fallen in love with his voice and personality. Ruben seemed like a nice guy, but his voice really didn't do anything for me.
Who was your favorite judge?Simon...I know I know he can be mean, but he just cracks me up at times. Paula is sweet, but I am so sick of the phrase "You were pitchy," and Randy annoys me a bit with the dawgs and yo yo yos.
If Simon wasn't your favorite judge, what did you think about him?
He can get out of line, but the things he says are pretty funny at times and at least he is speaking exactly whats on his mind.
Did you go to any of the American Idol Tour Concerts?No I went to Clay and Kelly's Independent Tour in Worcestor, and I am going to the American Idol3 tour in Manchester. I can't wait!
What did you think?Well I didn't go to the American Idol concerts, but the Independent Tour was awesome! I wish I got better seats, and I was pleased that it was my first concert.
Did it change your opinion on any of the contestants?Haven't gone to the American Idol concerts, but the Independent tour no it didn't change my opinion of Clay or Kelly I still love them both!
Have you met any of the Idols of either season ? No :-(
If so, what did you think of them ?Haven't met any
Have you ever stalked any of them ?
lol no I havn't...I don' think they would appreciate my stalking to much.
What do you think of Kelly Clarkson's music career now ? I think she is doing great. She was getting a lot of airplay on the radio and her single "Miss Independent," did great on TRL. She seems like the same old Kelly we met on American Idol, which is good.
Do you have her cd ? If so, what do you think ?Yes and I love! It's a great mix of songs from love ballods like "Anytime," to really upbeat pop songs like "Miss Independent," and good soul songs like "Whats Up Lonely"
What do you think of Clay Aiken's music career now ?He is a phenomenom! He has such a great and HUGE fanbase, and I see him all the time on TV. He hasn't changes either, the same sweet southern Clay.
Do you have his cd ? If so, what do you think ?Yes I have it. It's my favorite CD! It's very different from the rest of my CD's. Although I think he sounds better live, his CD Measure of a Man is fantastic. It must be doing something right if it's gone triple platnium...
What do you think of Ruben Studdard's music career now ?I haven't really been following Ruben, but I don't think he is as successfull as Clay or Kelly. I don't hear about him much anymore, and I heard the ticket sales for his tour aren't doing so well.
Will you buy his cd ? No, I am just no a nig fan of his voice and I heard it includes a lot of hiphop, and I am not a big fan of that kind of music.
What do you think about Justin Guarini's music career now ? Not so well. He got dropped from his label, I mean I can't say the guy is doing great.
Do you have his cd ? If so, what do you think ? No I don't have it.
What do you think about his record label dropping him? Do you agree ? I don't think I can answer this question, because I have never listened to his CD, but if his sales were that low then I guess it was the label's duty to let him go.
Your Opinion of...
Kimberly Locke :I loved her on American Idol. She has such a powerful voice. However her new song "8th World Wonder," that I hear on the radio all the time doesn't do her voice justice.
R.J. Helton :He didn't blow me away or anything. I think he was just Ok. He wasn't great, but he wasn't horrible.
Frenchie :The only time I heard her was when she sang "Band of Gold," I thought she was very good, but everyone was saying she was going to win American Idol (which I didn't agree with) However I don't think she should have been kicked off American Idol.
Kimberly Caldwell :I really liked her! I think she was under-rated. I really liked that raspy voice of her, and I wish her luck.
Nikki McKibbin :I didn't really care for her. Her rocker voice brought something different to American Idol, but her voice didn't blow me away like Kelly's or Tamayra's.
Tamyra Gray :I think she was the second best on American Idol, after Kelly. She shouldn't have been eliminated in 4th place, and her performance of "A House is Not a Home," is one of my favorites.
Trenyce :She seemed like she was trying to hard to be Whitney Houston, but some of her performances were really good, especially " A House is Not a Home."
Carmen Rasmusen :The yodel in her voice go really annoying, but I have to admit she was pretty good at country. She seemed like a really sweet girl, and I give her credit for handling herself well when Simon gave her some pretty harsh comments.
Charles Grigsby :I didn't think he was that good. His voice was nothing special, and his performance on Movie night was awful.
Christina Christian :She was one of my favorites from season one, but if you put her with the season one or two group, I don't think she would have stood out.
Julia DeMato :Same as my comment for RJ, she was just ok..not great, but nor horrible.
Have you ever tried out for American Idol ?Nope I am to young.
What was your experience ?Haven't tried out
Are you planning on trying out next season ?still to young, lol
Are you excited for next season? What do you expect ?Yes! I can't wait, I am expecting some very different voices since they are going to different locations.
