    Dave Matthews is a terrible vocalist, great musician. Phil is a better vocalist and a very good musician. Phil will do well IF he avoids being "handled" by those 19E/Interscope vultures.

    I laughed at the plug and very rehersed moment. Wouldn't be surprised to find out it was part of dress rehearsal.

    Why would they decide that now? It's now been 5 years in a row. The judges have some sway but not enough to reverse the trend. If they could change the trend then Joshua would have won.

    And looking at the top 24 this year, I already thought the girls group was much, much stronger than the guys.

    Never underestimate the power of the teeny bopper vote.

    I can agree Dave isn't the greatest vocalist but his voice is unique and when he's on, he's really on. Add that with him being a fantastic musician, performer and damn charismatic on stage and yeah.
    Phillip is a better vocalist now but he hasn't been touring non stop every year for 20+ years. I think Dave at 21 and Phillip are pretty comparable in the talent department. Another reason I love Phillip so much. He's like my future Dave replacement when Dave can no longer do this.... that is, like you said, if Phillip doesn't let 19 handle him.

    Jessica chose her song from a group of possibles as did Phillip.
    Choosing the wrong songs was her downfall all season long.

    "As for Sanchez’s power ballad “Nothing Changes"? “It did bomb, didn’t it?” Iovine remarked. “The song didn’t work well live.” Sanchez had her choice of “three or four different songs,” he added. “We don’t force the kids to do anything.”"

    I can agree with that. When Dave gets right in the pocket, he's quite good, and it's usually in a way that's very difficult for others to duplicate. I couldn't imagine anyone being able to cover his music. Even Phil struggled to convey DM despite being a much more capable vocalist.

    How is he supposed to avoid them?
    He is signed, sealed, and delivered.

    Maybe you mean "how tight a leash will they keep him on?"

    Yeah it's quite odd how I was immediately yelling "DAVE JR!" at my TV during his audition and obviously have made the comparison several times during the course of the show. The week he sings a DMB song, he sounds the least like Dave.

    My first thought was, "Stunning! What a hottie!" Then, "Oh ya, and Phillip's wearing a gray shirt again." :)

    Of course! I had on my WHBM shoes to match.

    Leave him and his love of gray alone! :p

    Yeah and he was there doing the photo ops and performing again after having surgery 2 days ago. We were told beforehand to be VERY careful and not give him bear hugs and watch his side. Poor guy.

    I have pics with Colton and Heejun as well if you all want to see them.

    Ha ha - not meant as a knock to his wardrobe taste at all - just a way to acknowledge that I did notice him in the picture, too! ;)
