Dizzying Intellect » Season Seven

Season Seven

They never listen to me. People, really, LOUD DOES NOT EQUAL GOOD.

The happy news is that they’re splitting the good and bad pretty evenly this year, if last night’s show was any example. I normally despise the audition weeks, because the ratio of talent to freak is about 1:20, and only watch for the fix. But I think they had about ten winners and ten losers psychos last night.

My favorite of the night: Beth Stalker. Surprise, right? She’s not the best voice of the night, but she’s the only one who had what the judges and America seem to want, a really unique voice. Think of the big sellers: Kelly, Daughtry, Carrie — while none of them were the absolute purest, best voices of their seasons, their voices are all immediately recognizable on the radio. The same way that you instantly know it’s Elton John or Billy Joel or, especially, to me, Gwen Stefani, even if you’ve never heard the song before.

Speaking of stalkers, I thought the Stalker song was hilarious and not at all offensive, and I hope against hope that someone buys it and produces it.

Also, Chris Watson has a perfectly passable, interesting voice, but when he finally starts modeling, I’ll have torn-out magazine pictures of him all over my bedroom walls. Yow.

    Cursed TIVO. Did the Chris Watson person get passed through to Hollyweird?

    Yeah, he did an interesting version of that one Uncle Cracker song. (The only one I’ve ever heard.) Sort of a pseudo-R&B flavor thing. It’s up on youtube already, obviously.

    I don’t think he’d make me drool in person or anything, but he has some serious mf’ing bone structure. I think Calvin Klein could take some black and whites that would make him famous.

    Here’s Beth Stalker, too. There are a bunch of videos up by someone with the same name, but I can’t play them at work to see if they’re the same chick.

    Here’s the Stalker one.

    His behavior at the end makes me think he’s just a comedian or something, not really a loonie. Peter Falk. Hee.

    Oh THAT guy. Yes, he has a lovely face. His voice was unusual, yeah, I just wonder if he’ll have the range they want.

    Saw the stalker guy…too creepy.
