What an Arrogant THREAD TITLE! Randy Jackson needs to learn something about MAMA( I am not talking about HIS OR YOURS ). Charlie did EXACTLY What that song demands- PARTICULARLY the anguished "SCREAM" at the end. For all of you "POP DIVA LOVIN/ ROCK MUSIC HATERS" out there- The song that Charlie performed IS ABOUT Phil Collin's PAINFUL ADDICTION TO PROSTITUTES AND HOW IT RAVAGED HIS LIFE AND MARRIAGES, etc. Etc. Anyone OLD (like ME?!- don't need Viagra yet at age 48) who has seen Genesis KNOWS that Phil Screams MORE THAN Charlie did ( HA HA, HA HA, OH...!!- for those in the KNOW). Does America really NEED another BALLAD SINGER with "runs" every 3 seconds? NO ROCK SINGER HAS WON AMERICAN IDOL( Daughtry finished 7th and then OUTSOLD 90% of AI "winners". In the words of Townsend & Daltry : LONG LIVE ROCK! I HOPE CHARLIE "sneaks into the top 10" SO you can KEEP ON HATING.... ;)

Finally someone who understands the song and background info!! THANK YOU!! I agree completely! They are so used to hearing bland pop tunes and hence their bland top 10! Charlie has a deep understanding for music, he can talk your ear off about any genre but he prefers classic rock. And yes apparently Idol doesn't know what to do with a rocker till this day. Very sad.

Thanks, SNUP! A. I. Is "Top 40 or go home". If Robert Plant was 20 years old now he WOULDN'T MAKE THE TOP 10!!!!! Cj
