Hey guys! I'm ayCFAN.. Smile I've been on the idol boards since season 6 and have been watching since season 1!! I gotta say, there has never been an idol who has truly inspired me until this season. Matt really inspired me, can't wait to see where his future takes him!! Smile Matt is IMO one of the most TALENTED contestant on this show, ever. Oh and he is also prettttttty good looookin' Wink

Hi I'm Jessica and I'm from Canada.
I've like Matt on Idol since he did Georgia, but I think I really fell in love with him once he sang "You Found Me" by The Fray, it brought me to tears and I instantly fell completely in love with him Smile

My names Eddie Diaz, my favorites have a curse for losing idol, though they deserve to win...The two most noteable are Matt G this year, and Elliott Yamin in season 5...Both robbed...Matt's originality, piano playing, and soulful vibe got me on board from the audition...When he was brought back for the wildcard i was thrilled, he proved he was worth it...I hope for big things in the future for Matt G. and i will certainly be purchasing a copy of his CD whenever it may come out...

hi everyone!
im whoslovinyou from the AI boards, like most of you said, its just easier to stick with the same name!

well i loved matt when i saw him do georgia, and found him very impressive but i didnt like the viva la vida performance... that night i was thinking aww man what happened?

then i was soooo happy when they announced him for the wild card, i still remember kara saying "we're bringing back one of the bluesiest singers there is..." and he KILLED it on whos loving you... which is why thats my screen name here! i just love his version of that song and loved the way he moved around the stage that night. i was instantly hooked again.

i never posted in the forums until this season and never ever voted until this season... actually i did not start voting until he was in the B2 after LGIO (i am a victim of social loafing) and i thought, NEVER AGAIN!! from that point forward, it was a full 2 hours/week!

all my friends make fun of my obsession but i'll be the one laughing at them when he makes it BIG.
what i love most about him is how unique and refreshing he is to the world of music. he still doesnt even think hes a celebrity, he still thinks he needs to "pay his dues"... and he is a truly remarkable musician. his piano skills blow me away, and knowing hes self taught and plays by ear... just ridiculous. all in all hes a **package** artist Wink

i wont be going to the tour, i really dont want to see anyone else but him so ill be waiting for his solo tour!! Smile
im glad i found this site so we can now chat without restrictions Smile

Hi all you Matty G "Girl Friends". Thank you TheRealLife and PeaceHope for inviting me to these boards. I am an oldie but goody! I live north of Atlanta, Georgia. But I am originally from Louisisana where I gradutated from LSU. I have been married for 20 years and I have three children. My son is almost 20! My daughter is 16 and my baby - he is a big American Idol fan is 10. He and I watch Idol religiously every week - since the auditions. He is a big Adam fan. And me - yes, I'm all about Matt Giraud! I listen to Matt so much I catch my little one singing his songs while he is bathing, playing play station, whatever he is doing. Matt's music just kind of gets stuck in your mind, body and soul like that.

I think I began to notice Matt during Hollywood week when he sang Georgia and the judges gave him a standing ovation. I secretly was pulling for him when he sang Viva La Vida and that is the first night my fingers dialed Matt's number...unfortunately Kris Allen made it into top 13 - after singing Man in the Mirror - yuck! So then Matt got his second shot from the judges with "Who's Loving You:" - OMG I can't get enough of that song. As each week went by I fell more and more in love with Matt's music and his talent.
Currently, Matt's songs from Idol and his pre-ido song "I'm Sorry" are like all i listen to as I'm sitting here at the computer or while I'm cleaning house, riding in the car, walking 3 miles,,,,you name it..if there is any spare time I'm listening to Matt.

The thing that impresses me about Matt the most is the fact that he started playing the piano at 18 and is self-taught...now that's what I call having the music in you! I love his voice. I find it so rich, soulful and smoothing. I like to watch him dance. I'm kind of addicted to watching him perform in the group song "Shake Your Body Down to the Ground"...."Part Time Lover"....."Stayin' Alive" and "Let's Get It On"...but i really love to watch him play his piano on "So Small" and "Human Nature"....in those two performances you can see how much he loves that piano and making sweet music!

Okay, so I have to sign off now...life is calling me. My time on here is limited. If I had it my way I'd sit her all day and all night, but alas, I cannot. Anyway...My name is Tigersrno1 and I'm a Mattaholic!

You sound like me, except I love his pre-AI songs, "Too Many NIghts" and So You. I listen while cleaning, on the computer ,driving, walking, cooking, etc.

Hello everyone! This is Lengski from the American Idol website, hence Lengski here too! My nickname is Leng (so you guys can call me that too!), and I am 17 years old. I currently work part time at a Sears branch (I'm heading there in about an hour... oh dear Mad ), and I am also a high school student (firgures... hehe ^__^). I am from the Philippines, currently living in Canada.

I promised myself to stay away from the Matt forums for at least a week until the finals because I've got major studying to do, but I just saw a message from peacehope in my e-mail regarding the new forum site.... I tried to resist clicking on it, but oooh Mad, the mouse just went and clicked on it anyway (I swear, I didn't have anything to do with it)! And now, I find myself here typing away, (because the Matt bug is so contagious...) editing my profiles, and combing the forums to satisfy my Matty hunger.

Ah...

Anyway, you guys are one of the best groups I've ever been involved with! All the Matt Giraud love is so endearing, and it actually makes me feel like a part of something. You know, unlike those other forums where they sort of treat you like an outsider? This place is so awesome! So much dedication, passion and devotion to our American Idol winner of season 8. Ah, and props to the people who spent their time making this forum (I gotta go back and check the names, because there's so many people here already, and it just keeps slipping my mind!) But you know who you are! Thankies!

Like so many, this is actually my first time being so invested in a contestant. I've watched the show for seven years, and I was never this obsessed about any of them until Matt came along. Gee, he's just such a special guy, isn't he?

Hi fellow Matt lovers!

I'm a young 41 year old groupie. I fell in love with Matt's artistry the first time he played Georgia on my Mind, Hollywood week. I voted for him non stop after that.
I have never been so involved in American Idol as much as this season, and only because of Matt. I miss hearing and seeing him so much on Tuesday nights. My twin girls love him also. Their b-day is a few days after Matt's. They think that is so cool. My favorites are "So Small", "Part-time Lover", and "Lets get it on". Of course I like all of them. I can't wait to see him in Charlotte in August on the tour.
Matt~~ sending you love from SC!

What a relief! I thought I was the only 41 year old feeling this way :-) I live in Copenhagen, Denmark and I have been following AI online (youtube, facebook, AI.com) since we are way behind showing the AI shows in Denmark - tomorrow they are airing the top 7 show..... !I actually noticed him during his audition and found my self nuts for his fabulous, husky, sexy voice. I think he is an incredible talented singer and I predict he will do amazingly :-)
I am a working mother of 4, so there is not that much time for me to dive into the Matt universe - but I have downloaded his songs and I love, love Part time lover and Funny valentine and lets get it on. He is on my ipod when going to work and when I hit the park for a run:-) Nice!
So for obvious reasons I will not attend any concerts but wish you all the best of time! Very Happy

I have to add that I have an iphone and can't get the American Idol ringtones on there but could get Matt's previous music - so I have "I Wanna Move". I let it ring as long as I can before answering! I love this song!

Hallo there! This is my nth attempt to post here. I hope this one doesn't disappear!

I'm an avid supporter of Matt since he sang Georgia! I was worried for him during Viva la Vida but was confident he'd be picked as wildcard. I got deeply hooked when he performed Human Nature, oh so dreamy!!!, and started voting 2 hours for him, first on one phone then 2 then 3! I love all his performances and studios! I love that he's so versatile and has varied taste in music! I love you I learned piano for years but still can't play it well, so I'm extremely amazed at Matt's piano skills!

I'm Mattyfan on the AI forums. I'm 35 with 2 young boys (we're all AI fans), my name's Tessa. This is the first time I've gotten invested in a contestant in the 7 years I've watched the show. I'm also a big Michael Johns fan, though I never voted for anyone like I did for Matt. Matt always got me worried when it came to votes, heheh!

I'm hoping we get to see Matt perform solo or with a celebrity on the finale. I'm suffereing from MAJOR Matt withdrawal. Grateful to have this Forum!

this forum was a GREAT idea... can't stop and get away from the computer...

anyway I'm Kayla (fruity_pebbles87 on AI) dropped the fruity... pebbles is my nickname cuz I've got red hair (nobody knows its bottle red! Laughing ) I'm 21... 22 in July. I'm originally from St. Louis but have been attending Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, IL for the last 4 years... just graduated so I'm SUPER excited to get back to the city....

umm why I got into Matt?? hmm, why didn't I? haha well, he's great, humble, sexy, funny, etc. etc. etc.... I don't watch the audition/Hollywood rounds of the show so I didn't get to see "Georgia" on tv Mad soo I started lovin Matt during the WC round... and then became OBSESSED when he sang my favorite MJ song... i'm in way deep... but it's ok!
