Yeah!!!! I mean, that wasn't who I WANTED to win, but it was who I was SURE was going to win. Gah.

I was a bit shocked too - but like I said before - Chris's nostrils were getting TIRED.

I was like that on Saturday about our Megasztár!

I wish we were able to access the other country shows. When they did that 'World Idol' several years back, pitting the winners of the different shows against one another, I fell in LOVE with Kurt Nilsen who won the Norwegian Idol show. (Even though he looks like a troll) His voice, I think, is better than most of the male singers on the American Idol show over the past five years. I would love to be able to hear the new talent (and see the horrible auditions) from the other countries!!!

Here are two links with songs from a few weeks back.Both are from the movie soundtrack night. This one is Magdolna Rúzsa, a 20-year-old girl from Vojvodina (area of Serbia with an ethnic Hungarian majority). She is singing a song from the Kusturica film Time of the Gypsies, she sang in both Hungarian and Serbian.

This song might be more familiar, it is Hungary's only world famous song, the suicide song, Gloomy Sunday, by Angéla Póka, who grew up in Hungary, Germany and Los Angeles, and has a degree in gospel singing. She came back to Hungary because of Herr Bush.

I was 100% sure that they will be the last two, but Angéla was voted out on Saturday.

Right click and save should work, or if you wait long enough, the songs should open in the browser window.

I like Angela's voice - I can see where that would have been surprising for her to be voted out! Thanks for sharing those

You're welcome. I'd love to see American Idol, but I can't. So I tend to watch Megasztár. The big final is on May 20, in one of the large sportsstadiums (stadia?) in Budapest, televised live. There will be all the finalists from the three seasons appearing, and a big big show.

I think Magdolna will win now. The guy who she is competing with in the final final has been crap recently and he just announced that he is leaving his family for the Megasztár band's back-up vocalist. Won't fare well with the middle aged ladies (his fanbase).

Here is a video of the guy who was cast off last night, Chris Daughtry,, doing Elvis' 'Suspicious Minds', and here he is doing 'Higher Ground'.

My favorite, although I think he is too quirky to actually win, is Taylor Hicks. Don't let the grey hair fool you - he's only 29! Here he is singing 'You Send Me'. I wish they had video from his performances this week. He did GREAT with Elvis. Wait - I found some. Jail House Rock Performance (Give it some time to finish uploading to my server. It's big)

Thank you! I love Taylor's voice! He was on AOL music once!

Yeah, I think he is simply the greatest, but I don't think his soul approach will win over the typically more 'pop' market.

Yeah, I can see that, but I still like him more than the guy who was just voted off. He is great, too, but I just like that soul thing about Taylor. I'm trying to find some recordings of Magdolna singing Janis Joplin--she is awesome. Thank you so much!

BTW - Jail House Rock is at about 90%, so it should be available to watch in a few minutes :)

Oooohhh, he was robbed, wasn't he?? Guess I'll actively pull for Taylor now, since he is a "local." :P Gawd, you should see the news coverage of his trip home--ridiculous!

I agree with you, though...he doesn't fit the "pop idol" mold, so I seriously doubt that he'll win. Blah.

I like hearing him talk, because it's a 'true' Alabama accent, instead of what you see in the movies. We don't all talk like hicks. :) Err, that didn't sound right once I read it back - isn't his name Taylor HICKS? *laugh
