OK I have to corrupt this forum ------ American Idol

Anyone catch Josiah Fleming tonight? He is going to be an incredible artist, and I've never thought that about anyone from American Idol. Watch this 18 year old kid.

Nooooo, don't do it! Haha.

I've never actually watched the show, I must say.

I'm a fan, the one I like is the homeless kid. To me he reminds me of Queen.

Yes its the homeless kid Josiah Leming. He is unbelievable. The most artistry I've seen on that show.

i agree. my wife makes me watch it. but i'm totally rooting for Josiah.

Reminds me a little of the 80s/90s scene out of Manchester, England... The Happy Mondays, Stone Roses and whatnot.

Very talented, but in a way that's unlikely to make him successful on the show, imho.

I only saw portions of the show last night. Was Josiah the one who went acapella and ruined 'Stand By Me'?

That 16-yo boy from San Diego was fairly good too. The judges said there are a ton of talent this year, so it should be interesting.

They don't send American Idol on TV channels around here. Sn no, I did not catch him

He is decent, and a nice break from the normal bubble gum pop type singers they normally attract, but I don't think he's any more special than the bunches of other "emo" type singers I have heard many times before in the past. I hope to God he stops with the whiny crying crap, it is starting to become nearly unbearable for me. Thank Christ for TiVo and the 30 second skip! Yeah, we all know you came from nothing, want it more than anything else in the world, and this means everything to you (just like it does to all of the other contestants), wah, wah, wah - just shut up and sing kid.

With that said - yeah, I predict he will be in the top 3 men near the end of the show.

Oh well, so much for that dude. LOL

I think his "Emo-ness" and overconfidence may have hosed him.

I think "Australian dude" actually has a pretty good shot.

I can't believe he got cut. He may have been whiny and immature, but he was their best singer. Unbelievable.

but you have to admit... that rendition of "Stand By Me" was embarrassingly bad.
