And YOU'RE going to give ME an "Oh, please???" You have got to be joking! Of course he's here for a career boost and exposure. THEY ALL ARE! That's what the show is for.
And, yes, as a matter of fact, I have heard of hyperbole. I know what he meant. My point is that whoever wins this competition is not, IMO, going to be with these guys long term. I believe that whoever wins, whether it is Marty, Mig or JD, will be lucky if this lasts two years. I see one CD tops, if that. It's like the Bachelor. If you pick someone in this unrealistic manner, it may look good for a little while, but in the end, it just won't work out for the long haul. But that is just MY OPINION and I don't expect you to agree with me. You never do.
I'm not sure why you can't just accept that some people don't like JD's voice or his style. I know you love it, and that's great. I love Marty and Mig, but I can understand if other people have different tastes. It happens.
If you're waiting for everyone to love JD, you're going to be waiting a long time. But I never said he was evil, manipulative, or calculated. I'm not sure where you're getting that, but it is certainly not from any of my posts. I just plain don't like him on stage or for this band and my comments have been about that and NOTHING more. I don't know him, so I can't make judgments about whether or not he is a good guy and I haven't.
So ease up a little, tiger. It's just reality tv!
