Luke Bryan makes a bold statement, claiming he believes Casey may just be the next winner of American Idol! Will Luke’s prediction be too much pressure for Casey to handle going into Hollywood Week?

  • 3TNT3

    First, don't misunderstand any of this, as I want to be very very clear, I think this young lady is absolutely phenomenal and amazing and a great great singer that one can only imagine how much greater she could become with lots of great advice, instruction, experience, Etc. But, with that said, the main thing I would just like to say, which applies to countless other great and amazing singers I have seen on American Idol, The Voice, America's Got Talent, Etc... Seriously, be honest with yourself, how many times have you heard amazing great singers that all the judges have gushed and raved over saying that they were a total star, that they were destined for greatness, and all the other platitudes, and then two years later you have completely forgotten about them, or at least 99% of the rest of the world did, and they are no longer on anybody's radar, they are not selling millions of albums, and they are not the big huge singing star that they were told they were going to almost certainly, automatically become? There are tens if not hundreds of great singers, over the last roughly 20 years, or however long it's been since American Idol began, that have come and gone, like that, alllllllll but never to really be heard from or about, again. With all that said, for many years, now, I have theorized or actually seriously wondered whether shows like these are actually ultimately horrible and bad for music, and that they maybe somehow ruin potential great and amazing careers of would be True Music superstars, because they pigeonhole them, put them in a box, polish them up, take away all of their real grit, unique originality, sincerity, integrity, and they try to make them into a commercial product, which poisons their musical souls. And, also if they don't "win" the show, they then are labeled as someone who didn't win, and therefore some might put them in the category of singing competition show 'loser.' Not saying that they are a loser, that's ridiculous. Just saying that they may be considered not hugely marketable as they can't have the platform of being introduced and pitched as 'The winner of American Idol / The Voice / America's Got Talent,' etc, and maybe leaving some people to wonder why they didn't 'win,' and therefore not give them as much of a listen or credit as they should be given. Also, there are a lot of morons in the entertainment industry who don't fully grasp and realize that the so-called winners of the shows are largely mostly chosen by 12 - 17 year old giddy school girls who either select a boy that they think is super cute and hunky, and also with a really good voice, or they select a girl that they think is really pretty and they look up too, who also has a really good voice. And there are many great and amazing singers who fit in genres that just don't appeal as much to these younger girls and kids who are the biggest voting block, by far, and then they therefore do not 'win' the show, and then the morons in the entertainment industry are too stupid to realize that if they just properly presented that singer to the demographic that they would most appeal to, in the right way, that they could be extraordinarily successful. I just can't say enough that I really have to wonder how much damage these shows ultimately do to a lot of these budding, would be music superstars, or at least those who would be extremely successful If instead they found their way onto the radar by a different path and Avenue other than these silly shows. This amazing young singer, here, Casey Bishop, the type of singing and music that would probably work best for her, where she would really be in her groove, is just not the type of music that is top 40 mainstream that these slimy snake sharks that try to capitalize off of these people like to work with, or know what to do with, properly, and they will either ruin her by trying to put her into a box that really doesn't fit her, dress her up and put makeup on her, and have her dress and talk and do all sorts of things in a way that just isn't really her, and do things with her in such a way that she just isn't Authentic and genuine and True to herself, and that will ultimately bleed through and be apparent, even if unconsciously, to many, and she will miss out on a different path being True to herself of which she almost certainly could have had Amazing and extraordinary success in. It's just a real sad shame, if you ask me. Especially being someone who is a True Music lover and would love to see the kind of great music and singing this Amazing young lady could produce over the next 30 plus years, if only she was placed into the right hands, rather than the wrong ones. Yes, there are exceptions to some of the things I have said, up above. I realize that Colbie Caillat try out for the show and didn't get anywhere and she has had very good success in the music world. Also, same for the lead singer of Lady A. But, they didn't go far enough in the show to wear that is stuck to them as part of their Public Image and identity, where people would be more inclined to look at them as having so-called lost the show. Alejandro was / is amazing, a great musical Talent who is unbelievably gifted in so many things, is songwriting, musicianship, singing, originality, authenticity, Etc... But, please tell me, how is his music career doing? Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't know of millions of albums that he is sold. There are so many countless others that could be given as examples of all of what I have said, up above. They are the typical, and Colbie Caillat and the lead singer of Lady a are the exceptions. Unless somebody convinces me otherwise, the shows are ultimately, on balance, by and large horrible for music and these otherwise would be true music stars or at least those who would have had very very successful musical careers. But instead, they go off to either never be heard from again, or just barely scraping by and hanging on to the ledge of the music business by the skin of their teeth and what's left of their worn down fingernails. The suits and the executives and what not in the music industry are, by and large, predators and bloodsuckers who just pray on these young, naive, inexperienced great artistic talents, where they just pump them up, fill their hopes and dreams, and then pop them like a balloon and go on to the next one while they're flailing around and shriveling up and landing on the ground somewhere where nobody can see them. They're fake phonies who try and make those poor young Souls think that they care about them and have their best interests at heart, but all they care about is what money they think they can or cannot make off of them. And because they don't have any real souls, or Integrity, themselves, they don't truly understand, and appreciate great genuine artistic talent with honesty and integrity and know what to do with such talent.

    Is nobody going to comment on the fact that she had Sarah Vaughn in her back pocket, geez? She's fifteen. Her mom was probably a little kid when Sarah died. Her voice is so controlled and so angelic. I think Sarah would have cried and hugged her afterwards. I can't wait to see what else she has in store. Her repertoire is already better than 95% of who show up. She went from metal hair band to Sarah freaking FIFTEEN. I just can't wait. Her life has already changed and she doesn't know it
