I could think a few right off the top of my head without straining a brain cell.<br><br><br><br>

Sometimes Simon is right on, but he was sure wrong about Jennifer Hudson.

Pretty much any interesting artist I can think of. AI is looking particularly for a singer with a conventionally "good" voice that will appeal to the masses. Most "artists" who stand the test of time are not only known for a conventionally good voice--they appeal to people (generally not 10-year-olds) because of their originality, song-writing skill, musicianship, etc. For instance, one of my favorite artists since the late 70s is Elvis Costello. He doesn't by any means have an AI voice, but he does have a unique voice, and he's a great songwriter. I don't love everything he does, but I like that with each new project he takes chances and tries new things. That to me is an artist. I guess there's a place for the Whitney Houstons, Celine Dions and Mariah Careys of the world, but it's not in my CD player!<br><br><br><br>
I actually do like to watch AI, but I sometimes change the channel while the contestants are singing because I hate most of the music. What I like about the show though is the drama of the whole process and the judge commentary.

I suppose there's no dictating taste. A year ago, songwriter Jimmy Webb made a concert appearance in my home town. I love several of his songs. Supposedly he doesn't have such a good singing voice and that's the reason his songs have only become famous when someone like Glen Campbell sings them, but I thought he was okay. His voice isn't really distinctive in any way either, so probably if he had tried out for AI, he would have gotten lost in the shuffle.

Ooh, that's pretty cool. There are some TW fans on VB, but Beefheart fans are more rare <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

You mean the embedded clips on VB or also the videos on the YouTube main site?<br><br><br><br>
For anyone who doesn't see embedded clips, the URL for the above is <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-TBMTui7qg8" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-TBMTui7qg8</a>

The folks on american idol can sing, but that doesn't make them artists any more than someone following a recipe to the T is a chef.
