Lady Gaga is going to be on American Idol this week. What are your thoughts about this? I think she will be able to provide some good tips on the entertainment aspect of each performance rather than the singing. It will be interesting.

I am over it. If it was your friend on American Idol, you would probably say fuck America too. Besides, now he will be able to record music and have a career without the weight of being a winner, or even in the top 5 of AI.

He'll do fine. He can play about 20 instruments. Singing was/is not his strong suit, and I never expected him to win, or even get close.

He's much better in this element:

Finally got around to watching the Gaga HBO special last night. I couldn't make it four songs. It was like watching a gay broadway play as opposed to a concert. I don't have any problems with promoting gay rights, but it seemed to me that was all the concert was about. Music was a distant second, imho. I was interested in seeing her before, but unwilling to pay the prices she was asking. I'm really glad I didn't.

So part of the deal with my lady for skipping Lady Gaga at Lollapolloza for the Strokes last year was that I'd go to the regular Gaga concert with her, here in Vegas. The show was just okay and nothing compaired to Madonna. I feel bad for all the people who saw her instead of the Strokes at Lolla. But let me tell you that not only are there a ton of gays at her concerts but there are also a ton of sluts. Man, chicks were wearing full on teddy's and lace thong panties with stripper heels.

Her advise to the female contestants will probably be "if you want to win or make it to the big time you will have to slut it up".

i've seen her a few times and these days the concerts seem like they are half music/half preaching. i get that she's trying to champion these causes, but it's just getting annoying at this point. last time i saw her she took a nearly 15 minute break to talk about equality and lip-synching and breaking it up like that makes the show way less appealing these days. i've heard several people at her shows yelling out "shut up and sing" multiple times during the show.

I, too, will admit to watching this season.

I just wanted to mention that Casey Abrams' first audition and then the audition with "Georgia On My Mind" were both incredibly good. But in comparison, I was let down by almost everything he did on the show. "I put a spell on you" was good though.

and even though the "growling" thing that the female singers always do REALLY annoys me, i actually like the way Haley does it because she makes it more her style as opposed to just an unnecessary inflection. this part at the 50 second mark is a good example http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t4yaVpMAQCE

i don't know why i decided to start watching it this season, but.. i can't stop.
(oh wait, i remember.. i wanted to see steven tyler)

I'm sure he'll be able to sell a percentage of what last season's winner sold.

Let's see. He wasn't in the Top 3, so... like 25%?

So, 40,000 X 0.25 is... 10,000 copies? Sounds about right. If he does something completely different from what he did on the show, that is.

Scotty will more than likely win the whole thing. i always like to think if it was my money, which contestant is going to get it back for me. Scotty fits the bill. He's goofy for sure, but he has the freak voice. When he sings, i'll close my eyes and hear money. i also met some girls at Stagecoach who were freaking out at the chance Scotty might be there. Won't be as big as Carrie, but the kid will have mucho support from the Country world.

And Gaga was an excellent mentor.

Word.

I think the new album is closer to The Fame than The Fame Monster, though. As far as I've heard, Born This Way is completely dancey and fun.

I like the singles so far (maybe not Edge of Glory), can't wait for the whole album.

The Fame Monster is short and perfect. 8 tracks. No filler.

I watched the rest of the HBO special because I wanted to see the "hits" performed. Good god, she does not shut up. It's like a fucking pep rally. She really can't dance, no fluidity, granted the outfits may hinder that. It's just too over the top for me, it's not even a concert. The hits were cool, but the crowd really wasn't going crazy for as diehard as they are. I did like show me your teeth, and the accapella part at the end. As for the rest of it, no thanks.

I feel the same way Becca. I was rooting for Haley, I could see myself listening to the music she eventually creates, but not Scotty or Lauren, I hate country music. Oh well, next up So You Think You Can Dance, whoot!

Scotty has absolutely no range and Lauren sang better in her audition than on ANY of the live shows. WTF is that about?

I read that music choice/swrv is doing some giveaway this weekend where the winner will get an ipod, gaga's albums, and her heartbeat headphones.

When did she come out with her own headphones? And she's coming out with her own farmville game?

Lady Gaga deal overwhelms Amazon servers

By Brenna Ehrlich, Mashable
May 24, 2011 6:06 a.m. EDT | Filed under: Web

Lady Gaga fans were delighted Monday to learn that they could download her new album, Born This Way, from Amazon for a mere $0.99 -- until, of course, technical difficulties set in.

Downloads of the album are delayed, leaving folks unable to get the entire album immediately upon purchase. Amazon issued the following statement:

"Amazon is experiencing high volume and downloads are delayed. If customers order today, they will get the full Lady Gaga, Born This Way album for $0.99. Thanks for your patience."

However, the damage has already been done, as users are meting out one-star ratings in droves, most of which deal with Amazon's slow service as opposed to the quality of the music (although some reviews in the lower bracket did dub the disc "disappointing"). As a result, the album has a relatively low three-star rating.

Reviews of the following nature reign: "This review isn't a review of the album, but of the Amazon's digital music service. I tried this as an experiment to see if I wanted to order more music this way, but it only downloaded half the songs. Still a deal at 99 cents, but not an experiment I'll want to repeat with a full-price album."

Many reviews also trumpet the user's intent to buy from iTunes in the future, instead of Amazon -- a state of affairs Amazon would want to avoid, considering iTunes already holds most of the market share for digital music.

This backlash does not bode well for the future popularity of Amazon's new Cloud Player service, which the company was touting in the promotional language of the deal, offering users more storage space for buying the album.

I agree. The same thing happened to me with Government Hooker. At first I thought that Electric Chapel and Heavy Metal Lover were just so-so along with Bad Kids, but there are parts of each song that I like a lot, so they've grown on me.

I ended up 3rd row at the American Idol finale and got to witness Gaga in the flesh. SO FUCKING GOOD. It was a little hard to see though because she was up so high up on this rock formation thing. TLC was a nice throwback as well.

SNL - WATCH IT - she's lip syncing there BIG TIME....pull it on youtube and you'll see....but you won't watch it because you know it'll destroy any thought of her being a true musician. YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH

Her "LIVE" show on HBO - is 95% lip synched....

I lost all respect for her as a singer....it's all bells and whistles....put enough bass and techno in there and few ever notice.

You're the type of person who can see someone else do a piece of art and another person takes credit for it and you'll go along with it because your too weak to handle the truth.

Watch the SNL performances....OMG they are horribly lip synched that my 5 year old saw it.
then watch the HBO special running...and tell me she doesn't lip synch....you won't do it.

Be real and watch the two mentioned THEN SEE FOR YOURSELF.

ugh NO...NO and NO again.

you get backup singers if you need them and you perform everything LIVE!!! People pay the price to SEE THEM SING....not fake it...or half ass it. There should NEVER be a CD playing over the speakers for someone who performs with THEIR OWN VOICE or playing any instrument.

jesus what's wrong with you people that you accept less than full effort.

For every supposed lip syncing performance (she's been using a lot of backup tracks for dancey songs, like "Judas"), I can give you something like this:

Yes she doesn't do it on all her songs but it's there. Vocal backtracks are lame as fuck, ruined Odd Future at Coachella for me too.

And it makes a difference to me when you're not even trying to sing while the backtrack is at full volume than just having it go in the background.

HunterGather

I find it funny that bits of backup vocals from a track mean someone is lip synching...

If you REALLY wanna see some blatant lip synching, watch the Rihanna/Britney Spears performance at the Billboard Awards.

Rihanna was singing live, and Britney came out to walk around the stage very stiffly, and was lip synching like it was no ones business (not a surprise, but it was just soo clear).

It must be weird to be lip synching with a person who is singing live.

05-27-2011, 10:48 AM
Are true musicians not allowed to use any recorded versions of their voice or instruments for backing purposes? Almost anyone using a keyboard is out of "true" consideration. A lot of guitar players are out too. i think Roger Waters used a little help too. Fuck, i thought he'd be true for sure.

Ok, i'm gonna come back to this.

Were we watching the same thing?
She IS singing live. She has a backing track for the backup vocals. She DOES have backup singers, but for whatever reason weren't at the SNL performance.

And how did you hear her voice on EDGE OF GLORY? Amazing.

Some people, like Robyn for example, don't have backup singers on their live shows. They rely on a track for backup vocals. Maybe its a cost-saving reason, but in any case they are still all there with a band performing live.

I don't know what you want...

My only critique of pop stars in general is doing TOO much dancing while singing. Gaga has descent breath control, but still.

You can! I've signed up for tickets on on-camera-audiences.com for the past three years and every year I've been lucky enough to snag tickets for the finale. I think it's the timing though, I sign up after the Hollywood auditions.

Beyonce is the definition of TTP-the total package.

I wonder if she'll do this on tour, or if it was just a one-off. It prolly took forever to get this prepared and rehearsed.

Also, Beyonce has AMAZING breath control. Not just in this performance, but in general. And that's even harder to do when the mic is a head piece, so you can't move it away.

Lady Gaga is going to be on American Idol this week. What are your thoughts about this? I think she will be able to provide some good tips on the entertainment aspect of each performance rather than the singing. It will be interesting.

Yes. She is a very unique human being so very interesting
