I gotta chime in about this VLV thing. It's been running through my mind for months and I wish I could let it go, but alas....

I watched the White Chocolate performance a couple of weeks ago, and it brought back all of my irritations about Kris to the surface again. I almost couldn't watch it because it was so blatantly obvious that Matt was the focus of that performance. Kris could barely keep rhythm of the basic dance steps! He looked so awkward and lacked even one drop of soul. Matt came out and just commanded attention. His voice is the voice of a star. He looked so self-assured and magnetic in that clip. *sigh* How could people prefer Pocket Idol? I guess it was just the circumstances. I sometimes wish that Kris hadn't been in White Chocolate, frankly. He kind of rode on the coattails for that one. And I agree with everyone who says that VLV was Matt's fatal mistake. Wish we could go back in time and fix that catastrophe, too. I guess going through all those ups and downs with Matt's Idol journey, and with the finale, and now with his subsequent success on tour has been strenuous yet worthwhile. Things happen like they are supposed to, and even though I wish that Matt hadn't had to fight and claw for every scrap of kudos he received on Idol, the best really is yet to come. And though I wanted it then, looking at the whole picture now I see that an Adam/Matt finale would have served Matt terribly. He'd be going through exactly what Kris is going through right now. THat would suck for anyone.

Wow, okay. No more stream-of-consciousness writing for me anymore! Hope that diatribe made sense to you Matt fans, cause I'm sure it would be lost on everyone else. Cukkoo!

I agree with everything you say. Even though we all wanted Matt to go much further, I believe that his #5 position is serving him well on tour. He's a total standout in the first half of the show. It seems that everyone wants Danny's set to flash by just to get to Adam. And, of course, Kris has the unfortunate position of following him. I am big believer in fate and I think that everything will turn out exactly as it should for Matt. Thank God for hindsight, everything looks so much clearer (is that a word?).

Ah the VLV catastrophe and it is real believe me. I know this because I fell victim to it myself. I first remember taking notice of Matt when he sang Georgia during Hollywood rounds. I immediately thought WOW who is this guy and where did he come from? I was definitely blown away. Then VLV happened. I remembered Matt from Hollywood and how much he impressed me but I was disappointed by VLV. Then Kris performed Man in the Mirror and I really liked his performance however I didn't remember Kris at all from Hollywood rounds and figured they just didn't show him. Well I was torn because I really liked Matt in Hollywood and wanted him to go through but I liked Kris better that night. So like a dumb ass I split my votes and actually voted more for Kris than Matt (please don't kill me). I am positive many people did the same thing.

I would like to add however after Who's Loving you and Human Nature it was only Matt for me all the way! I never split my votes again. What was really strange was that I was actually quite upset that Kris made it that night and Matt didn't. I didn't realize until Matt was sent home that night how much he had impacted me. Matt is sneaky! Suspect

Here are the ones I thought were interesting, to say the least:

Orlando wrote:
Very exact review. It was like you said when Matt Giraud got up on stage the concert started. He played the piano extremely well which I
thought was funny because others have taken lessons but this kid is self taught.
[Yes, someone remembered that detail!] Another thing
was Matt Giraud is really coming into his own and his singing is improving. I believe it is confidence that is changing him.

I know that it is a tv show, and I know that rotten comments, icy judges, nervous contestant and drama makes good television - but MAN I think it is sad (and yes I am being naive here) that the show never really got to portray Matts talents and personality (other than his bright and devoted fans!) That the maingoal was not to make the contestants shine and let them grow but to make "good" tv...whatever that is.
But when that has been said I just love the fact that he is getting all the praise that he derserves now and that he is not suffering the Kriss fate!


Like I said before I'm a HUGE believer in FATE and that "everything happens for a reason"..as you can see it actually all worked out for the best because Matt doesn't have to go up against Adam all the time and the comparsion like Kris is!!
