    Anyone who says no seriously underestimates the stupidity of the voting audience. If they buy her CD's in the shops, what reason is there is suspect that they wouldnt vote for her in Idol?

    Haha, that's great. I can't believe people buy her cd's.

    I heard during this last earthquake in California that her CD's were flying off the shelves.
  13. Lest we forget that auto-tune is her best friend in the studio...as long as the "artist" captures the "feeling" on the track, the wizards that are the pop-spewing machine can make her sound like gold.

    No, she wouldn't survive round one. In fact, I'd like to see Simon's reaction.
  14. The short answer: No.

    The long answer: No way.

    BTW, round one doesn't involve a voting audience unless you consider those three judges a voting audience. I know because it's the only round I've ever watched just to see the sideshow and the people who think they can sing...and the people who know they can't but pretend they don't know.

  17. I'll shoot myself later for saying this, but I really like that new Kelly Clarkson song. For all its formulaic rock-du-jour, for some reason, I'm hearing some honest music in that song...and that video makes her look scrumpdillyicious too.

    I'm a lame horse...put me down. ;)

    no, she wouldnt. and come to think of it, neither would lindsay lohan...also caught lip synching. ouch.
  19. Lindsay Lohan and Ahslee simpson have something in common, and it aint coz they lip synch.

    I'd never buy their cd's.. but lets just say if there video was on tv, i'd hit mute and enjoy the show :)
