Is David Performing on AI?

30 January 2009



According  to the latest Billboard interview with David, AI has not approached him to perform this season.  He said he would like to and thinks it would be weird to be back on that stage.

Is David being DISSED?  Since AI has such low ratings, you would expect them to have David perform.  Not asking him would be a mistake.  Let’s hope they have been just too busy with their auditions to approach him yet.  Another example of how short-sighted the producers may be on A.I.  With their ratings dropping into the water closet basin, this may be their last season.  Move over Idol, we need the prime time spot for something entertaining.

    I will watch AI only if David is performing! I do think the show’s production does not plan well in advance, so maybe they haven’t determined when they would like David to appear. They probably don’t even know when all the Guest Mentors will be on the show.

    Oh…I am completely uninterested in anything about the show this year.

    I’m sure I’ll know if David is going to appear by reading about it on fansites, and I’ll watch his performance and nothing else.

    The show has certainly lost it’s luster for me after the nonsense from last year.

    I am really quite delighted that Idol’s ratings are down! This despite the fact they have gone all out promoting Season 8, advertising heavily on television and radio. They’ve also had lots of free promotion, with stories about how they have supposedly revamped the show, added a new judge, etc. I really believe it goes beyond the fact that all programs eventually suffer from a loss of novelty and thus lose their audience. I sense a fatigue with the show’s manipulation and questionable tactics.

    Looking back on results night from Season 2, Simon was asked on the red carpet who he hoped would win. He said Ruben, defensively suggesting that even he was allowed to have a favorite. I remember thinking it was a bit inappropriate for him to reveal his preference, but at least it happened after the final votes had been tallied. Fast forward 5 years, where not only did Simon let his preference be known, he lobbied heavily for Cook on a whirlwind media tour prior to the final performances he would be judging. This was obviously done with the full knowledge and blessings of Idol producers. Even a casual observer must have been struck by how inappropriate it was. Objectivity had been thrown into the “dustbin,” to use an English term.

    If and when David is invited back on as a guest, my prayer is that the ratings will spike for that particular show. I for one will contact everyone I know and ask them to watch. Afterwards, I hope the ratings plummet again. If that happens, then justice will have been served.
