"Nikki vs. Jasmine"
Howdy AI Fans

I missed the first season of AI. I heard at the final 4 level, Tamyra Gray was shockingly voted out and the less talented Nikki McKibbin remained.

Is the Jasmine/LaToya shocker more controversial? Why or Why Not?

Please enlighten.

It's a wash. Tamyra was great and was beat out by an untalented skank (and I never use that term lightly), while LaToya is IMO is more talented than Tamyra and was beat by an untalented (I do think Jasmine has some talent, this is just for arguments sake) really nice girl.

Great singer beat by skank = Exceptional singer beat by nice girl.

Winky

This is a proven fact, by the way.

Yep, if Minkey says it, it's true.

Actually, I remember Randy commenting on Tamyra's boot. He said that she had a bad week, her first bad week, and more people tuned in to watch that week than had previously. AI was just beginning to catch on, so the new viewers hadn't seen Tamyra's past performances, so Nikki got more votes than Tamyra.

Tamyra is doing pretty well for herself considering she didn't win AI. Anyone heard what Nikki's doing these days?

Why thank you beautiful, Augie! If I can get my husband on the phone could you talk to him .

edited to say... He just doesn't understand that it's a proven fact that whatever I say is a proven fact.

I'm still boycotting, but I'm here working on a secret mission. If I told you what it is, I'd have to force you to listen to Johnny Red sing "King of the Road" over and over and over again.


I'm only here for the good of the country. I'm doing my duty.

Minkey,
I haven't heard any stories that would lead me to say the same thing about Nikki. You will HAVE to PM me and give me the dirt!

Tamyra going was more shocking BY FAR!

I am the first to admit that Tamyra's worst night unluckily coincided with Nikki's best night (which was the night Tamyra went)..and I'll also admit that Jasmine does have her rough moments, and most likely did last longer than she should have.

BUT..Nikki was in the bottom 2 or 3 virtually every single week of the competition (I can't think of a week that she wasn't in the bottom 3, actually). Nikki's vocals were comparable to the slow torture of a cat. She has to be heard to be believed.
A pefect example, if you can hunt it down..can be found in Nikki's cover of There is Always Something There to Remind Me ..but, if you do listen to it, be forewarned, it's painful.

Contain your shock, everyone, but I am likely the only person on the planet that doesn't care for Tamyra's voice. I didn't like her music then, and she only sounds marginally better to me now. She is a nice girl and I wish her well, but her voice is not pleasing to my ear. Therefore, I was rather pleased when she got ousted, since I didn't care for her singing. I still can't figure out why everyone likes her voice--I fear it will remain one of life's mysteries for me.

On the other hand, I really enjoyed LaToya's voice, and will likely purchase her CD when it comes out. I think she is fantastic. Therefore, based upon my own personal likes and dislikes, I did find the Jasmine/LaToya shocker more shocking, and thus, controversial.

To me Tamyra has so much more personality and life in her voice and performaces. La Toya was textbook excellent, she rocked but bored me.

Back to your question......I was shocked when Tamyra left, but I remember she had sang some weird crappy song the night before. So I guess La Toya getting the boot was more shocking because she gave no reason to stop supporting her. And IMHO Jasmine and Nikki are equally as painful to listen to, Jasmine just looks better.
