I don't know what the big problem with him was. American Idol is a pop singing competition. Part of being successful in pop is having an image with a listenable sound. How many artists are popular that can't carry a tune? Quite a few, but they have good production, music, a schtick and marketing.

Hey Doodes.. you know there was this thing on the today show a month or so ago.. called Anyone Can Sing! Kerry Sanders , the today show reporter.. went in to a studio and they recorded him singing "Thats The Way I LIke It" (the old KC SUNSINE BAND tune).

Of course he couldnt sing a lick!.. But they didgitally enhanced with this program called MELODYNE which is a plugin for SONAR. I recognized SONAR right off the bat hehe!..

Then they added some REAL brass instruments and added delay to his voice and you would swear he is a REAL POP SINGER. Razz

here is the link to the video that is still on thier site. I cant see it with this computer i am using now cause the software wont work.... but i can view it with the other computer. But being dial up it is VERY slow and choppy.

I wish someone could save the video for me in MPEG form! Sad

http://video.msn.com/v/us/v.htm?g=a9bc1ac7-e65a-4852-86f0-7de3d92f0cc2&f=05&fg=rss

the point of it is, is that you dont need talent to be a popular. Thats is factual.. look at Brittney Spears you can they defintaly use a auto tuner on her thats why she sounds like micky mouse alot. her voice is that bad off that the best they can do is make her sound like micky mouse.

Another person who relies on effects heavily for his vocals is EMINEM if you watched the behind the scenes of 8MILE he even admits to not being able to sing hehe!..

Auto Tuners go back as far as even CHER used them.

This Melodyne is killer and so far ahead of other auto tuners. You can do so much with it! hehe!!.. IT WORKS i was surprised how well it does work!.

I dont watch AMERICAN IDOL.. cause of ther phony HYPE it is.. POP music isnt my style anyways. and all these SO CALLED singers they pull on that show. is really all , like i say HYPE. The show is all politics too , like the real reason WHY REUBAN STuDDARD won! NO you cant prove that they really go by ACTUAL VOTES from the viewers.. just cause you can call in a vote doesnt mean it is REALL COUNTED!..think about it!.. POLITICS people! hehe

To me the REAL Singers are the ones that really WORKED HARD to get where they are at.. during the time when music REALLY MENT something and was REAL!!

I think Lisa Loeb is hot. Gwen Stefani has a nice image, and her sound fit the band. Entertaining.
When you listen to many artists, if you have a decent ear you can hear the compression and stereo chorus, and reverb added. The production that goes into making them sound good is amazing. I guess this is why many pop artists lip sync when in concert.
American Idol has not produced anyone that impresses me. I do like Kelly Clarkson a bit and she did a live set before a Nascar race that sounded like good for being live. Chris Daughtry is ok too, but he sounds like every other rock band of his style. Other than that, I have zero interest in American Idol artists. Sanjaya added an image and something different to the mix. Now everyone else is just a voice. I foresee Sanjaya getting a record contract and probably doing better than the actual winner of the contest.

Well the compression, reverb and chorus are ok just as long as they arent over done. They can be a real tool sometime.. but these peopel i am talking about use AUTO tuners, and pitch correction hehe meaning they cant sing hehe!..

But if yoru talking about American Idol contestants that cant sing and who are making it.. look at WILLIAM HUNG!!? rember him?!? SHABANG1! heheh... hell they DIDNT even use any pitch correction on him.. i guess that they figured he is so bad peopel like him that way hehehe.. more of a comedy act then anything! heck the record company makign money on him hehehehe

But i am like you D_D... i dont like that show either. POP music just isnt my style.. i like ROCK.. hard heavy rock.. the 60-80s metal and rock bands!.. thats me..

tho i listen to other kewl stuff too like Electronic stuff and remixes.. i like music llike from ENIGMA and ENYA too once in awhile depending on the mood!.. I love PInk Floyd..(they are my inspiration for the cd project i am working on) so you see i like the music of the time when it was REAL MUSIC! Smile

William Hungs awfulness and his lack of caring what people thought made him a hit. He had a gimmick, and it worked for him. It shows that it doesnt matter what talent you have, if you have some sort of talent that attracts attention, then you will get your 15 minutes.
Pop isn't my style either. Very rarely do I get interested in anything mainstream anymore. The commercialism and corporateness of music has really ruined any interest I have in popular or mainstream music. Even if an artist is good, I have a hard time supporting them as they are shoved down your throat every 10 minutes on radio. Linkin Park was a band that I liked before they became popular. I liked what they did, and then they played them and Metallica 4 times an hour every hour ruining any reason for me to buy their music. I also refuse to support music that some suit thinks I should be listening to by jamming it into my ears.
Metallica used to be great, now they are garbage in my book.
I listen to a lot of 80's New Wave, New Age, non-mainstream stuff, movie soundtracks, and 70's stuff. I also love mashups and remixes for their creativity.
There will never be another Who or Led Zeppelin, or Pink Floyd. Those days are gone.

I have amassed a collection of over 264 gigs of all kinds of music and the more I get, the more I find it harder to locate things I like.

Without a doubt. If I owned a record label, I would jump on it, as all the tenney boppers that voted for him, would buy his CD.

He'd be a big seller. They have to jump while the iron is still hot. He couldnt be any worse than what is out there now.
