Taylor Hicks, Ruben, Cook, Kris, and Jordin all had decent first singles or albums. Dewyze and Bowersox as a season was definitely the low point. But comparing these acts to someone like Taylor Swift is not the right way to look at it. Taylor Swift is an anomaly, a standout, not in line with actual industry expectations of acts. Katy Perry, Rihanna, and Ke$ha have had shit album sales, and continues to have shit album sales, relative to their success on radio and they have immense teams, tours, and promo behind them.

I think you seriously are overinflating what success means to these idols - people go into this show with dreams of being an star, but plenty will settle to be able to live very comfortably doing what they love - singing and performing. Taylor has been on national tours with broadway shows, and has had a residence in his own Las Vegas show. Fantasia is critically respected and regarded in the R&B industry. Kat McPhee is on TV, Jordin has had successful singles and a movie. We know the Jennifer Hudson story, Diana Degarmo has been well received on broadway, Ace Young has parlayed his experience into a presenting gig, Chris Richardson and Blake are producing and contributing to other artists, and the list of Christian, Gospel, and Country music careers that have started from Idol can go on for a while.

To judge the lack of success from Idol and other reality shows based on voting figures vs. eventual sales is just a terrible way to understand what these shows can do to change lives.
figures is the way the world works i'm sure people cares not if these people are "respected" "well received" "decent singles" after they get dropped from the initial contracts if you think big money is made that way well

but since y'all seem a bit stuck on the simplistic i'll leave that there


moving on though....tonight is a huge snoozefest

Raϊl hasta siempre capitαn ♥♥♥


I shall destroy the temple, and rebuild it in 3 days

They are trying too hard. The hand choreography reeked of desperation. The constant winking was lame

Their performance of Demi's song was perfect.

They are going home. Bye 5H.

Is the pressure getting to Carly ? Average performances tonight. Its like a tennis player choking at 5-1 40-0 up in the second set after having won the first set 6-1.

Caught Carly Rose's performance of "Imagine" on TV. Agree with Simon. Over the top and a bit shaky

Re: US X Factor 2012 (Chat Thread)

Tate Stevens..his 1st song was the most entertaining he's done so far but I felt like he was out of breath the whole time. The 2nd one was touching but I still think he doesn't push it nearly enough to compete with the other. Still simply some boring country to me

Carly Rose...Her 1st song was great! I think she sang it really well but when she sang Imagine I totally agree with Simon. She did too much, when she pushed those big notes in the middle of it, it was totally out of nowhere and didn't sound right at all. Imagine is such a big song that you can't do too much change with it.

Emblem 3...that 1st song wasn't good at all. I felt like they were all over the place. I didn't get why the judges all thought it was such a great performance. Hey jude on the other hand sounded quite nice it seemed legitimately like a pop hit song.

Fifth Harmony... I think it was their week. They were the best tonight. That first song was soooo perfect! Ellie Goulding too? wow they looked incredible and sounded even better!!! Impossible was also pretty great, they all sang really greatly! I'm surprised LA and Britney talked trash about it, they totally talked out of their ass cuz they know 5th Harmony were last and they simply want to push them out of the way. They are one of the best girl band I've ever heard tbh.

To me Tate should go home or Emblem 3 but that is never gonna happen. Sadly no matter how great they were tonight fifth harmony was doomed from the start. They deserve to get signed.

Wozniak~ElTabakh ~Marino~Eugenie Bouchard...and the other Canucks!
Maria Sharapova~Anna Chakvetadze~Jelena Dokic~Laura Robson ~Sabine Lisicki
