The “Idols Live” tour wraps in the Phillipines

Thia Megia and Scotty McCreery show up at a “TRL”-type show in the Phillipines called “Eat Bulaga.”

- The same week as “The X Factor” debuting, “Idol” has its final audition city in East Rutherford, N.J. this week.

- Oh, did I forget to say “The X Factor” is debuting Wednesday?

- On “Glee,” Quinn goes “bad’ by getting a Ryan Seacrest tattoo on her lower back. Huh?

Looking forward to X factor but still not as excited if it was idol

And here’s a link to a video on FoxNews.com about the X-Factor. Not too impressed with the female that’s not Paula.

I doubt that I’ll be impressed with the female that’s not Cheryl Cole.

Thanks Rodney, but what is Bulaga?

Thia actually showed some personality in that interview. Maybe she will do well there.

D. (originally) and Neg, thanks for the post of Haley’s performance with Mayfield. She definitely shines on “God Bless The Child”! Just wish the video was a little better lit.

Due to work schedule, I’ll use the DVR for X-Factor tonight and catch it later on. Kinda prefer to skip through what will most likely be a plethora of commercials, anyway!

Speaking of which, …those of you who use the DVR regularly, don’t you just hate it when you’re watching a show and press the fast forward button on the remote only to realize you’re viewing the show live?! :D

Where are we meeting now? The most recent Radio & TV Talk Blog or just the ones about Idol, X-Factor …?

Highlander!!! LOL! I’m always trying to ff a live show.

lar, we’re just going to have to play it by ear once we move over there. We’ll stick with any singing competition threads until we feel ore comfortable. Either Rodney, I or some other blogster will announce a new thread to move to whenever one appears.

Harriet…not a surprise. Rodney will be talking to us very soon.

X Factor starts tonight. Opposite Modern Family. That’s pretty daring. I admit to looking forward to the show but Simon has been such an egotist about it that I have mixed feelings. Firing Cheryl Cole, imo, was a big mistake even though American audiences don’t know her. Nicole is gorgeous but has less to say than Paula. Simon wants to beat Idol in the ratings. My thought is that, after 10 seasons, it should be pretty easy to beat Idol in the ratings but many shows have tried and failed.

I will probably watch tonight just to get an idea. Screaming audiences voicing their opinions makes me think of the old gladiator days. Don’t like it much on Idol, hate it on AGT and I’m not sure I’m going to tolerate it on X either.

I wish there was something better on at 8 tonight so that I had an excuse to not watch XF. And I’ll just record MF to watch at 11.

Hi y’all!

JT, Bulaga…whale? Oh, wait.

X Factor tonight! Whoo. I’ll be watching…and then switching over to Modern Family, most likely.

And I’m still here…and will be until I get the “404″ error. :cry:

Waiting with interest to see X-factor tonight. I’m still here too.

I will watch X Factor just to see Paula and Simon together. And, hasn’t Simon always been an egomaniac? I got tickled at one of the comments over at MJ’s. They said Simon needed to stay away from the plastic surgery before he begins to look like Joan Rivers. LOL.

I still think that they should have two blogs: one for radio & TV – and one for reality talent like Idol, AGT, X, the voice, sing-off, etc.

Ahh Sakura, thank you for stopping by and answering my question. Good to know.

In case you haven’t seen it, we’ll be moving over to Rodney’s Radio and TV blog sometime. Just a warning so you can still find us ;)

I too, am waiting to watch X-Factor tonight. I sincerely hope that we won’t be disappointed, but have a feeling that we just may be. Will know when the first show is over.

This move would have been more easily accomplished if it had been during Idol season when most of the gang is hanging around. With luck, some lurk often enough to get the word.

If you’re lurking out there, and you’ve commented more than a couple of times during Idol seasons, please check in during the next 24 hours to let us know that you are aware of the impending move to the Radio and TV blog.
