Fantasia Has Red Hair, Doesn't Bore Me

Fantasia performs her new single “Bore Me” during Wednesday’s results show of American Idol.

    I hate her voice man. Just like when simon said on american idol that her voice sounds like donald duck and helium. I also hate how she always opens her mouth wide do any of you guys notice that haha

    She is fantastic!!! What a performer!!!
    No other AI contestants can be compared to Fantasia.
    Especially this year’s most of the boring contestants should learn that energy.

    i can’t believe she won AI….=S OMG that was one of the most HORRIBLE performances that i have EVER seen!!! really I thought she was on drugs!!! it was HURTING my ears so bad…that sound was like something that came from planet MARS hahahahah….trust me my face was just like Simon’s and i’m sure a lot of other people’s faces were the same as well………

    Come on people, be nice to her. After all, it’s tough to be accepted as a woman after a sex change operation. And I can only assume that her hair color is due to some kind of industrial accident.

    Think Grace Jones or Patti Labelle in New Attitude and then you can follow what Fantasia was trying to do and what, I believe, she pulled off well. It was Fantasia, being herself and those that dig it, really dig it, the others were sitting there with their mouth open like Simon, waiting on a translation.

    But, if someone needs to translate it to you, you were never going to get it any way,so go buy Jordin Sparks single, she could use some help in sales.

    On the hair color- does anybody remember Madonna with dark roots, blond hair and dark eyebrows?- Did that look natural? Or flattering? I didn’t think so but Madonna could do whatever the heck she wanted to.

    Fantasia is worthy of the same creative performance and hair liberties.

    Fantasia rocked on Broadway and you don’t have this kind of effect on a New York or American Idol audience by trying to just fit in. I like that she took the chance and stayed true to herself.

    Brava Fantasia!!

    I can’t care for the hair either. As for the braces the diffrent colors have diffrent meanings. I could not tell if Simon liked her or not?!? As for people talking bad about her….you are just use to the dull people on this show who are stiff as boards and who can not sing or dance…Taylor Hicks! She is a singer/preformer and you are just mad because you have no talent. You will never have hit cd(s) or sing on broadway like she has. Keep moving forward Fantasia and stay true to your great name. Be yourself. Shake those no talent haters off……… Shake shake shake!!!!!!!

    I love her! Her voice is so unique – with lots of emotion! What an exciting performance!

    Some of those who commented that this is a horrible performance, so ghetto….

    I ask, what is wrong with the ghetto… She is celebrating her roots, her culture. And if you cannot stand it then you are very ignorant of what america is all about.
    It is usually people who are from the ghettos themselves who write such ignorant things because they hate their own roots, upbringing. Learn to love who you are and celebrate american culture in its varied manifestations…Go to college and learn about diversity and tolerance.

    The best part of that performance was Simon’s look. I had to rewind to see him again. It was like looking in a mirror.

    Fantasia is a freak show. It seems like all she wants to do is shock. Well…She did that! I have never seen a more pathetic demonstration. She looked like a rooster flapping around on stage, shrieking in some strange language. People at work told me to look at Summertime on Youtube but even that wasn’t very good. It was at least tolerable, though. How did she ever win?

    That is what Simon was thinking, too.

    The hair reminded me of Woody Woodpecker, but the sequined top was pretty. The ‘singing’ was atrocious! Fantasia sounded like a banshee on quaaludes. For a minute there, I thought Simon was going to vomit into Paula’s Wonderbra.

    Fantasia is the sh_t. I saw her in the last night of her lead as Celie in “The Color Purple” on Broadway. People were asking me whether she looked pregnant. I was not there for that, so I don’t know. She did not appear pregnant to me. But, the Musical performance was awesome. I heard the red hair put-downs, and I see nothing wrong with it. Fantasia has her own style of performing. She needed no training, and is a born entertainer. Everytime I see her perform, she does an awesome job. Anybody who can’t take it is just that: “jealous and can’t take it”, and need to get some business; cause Fantasia has hers$$$$$$$$$ Love yall!!! The envious and all.

    For those who can’t seem to “get with” Fantasia’s hair will forever remain in the past; because Fantasia has moved on beyond her American Idol Days. She promised everybody that we will see her everywhere, doing everthing. She’s keeping her word, and I am enjoying every minute of her high energy-what many entertainers have not been offering (with exception of Tina Turner, back in her day; and Beyonce & Shakira today). I am so… happy for and proud of Fantasia. She has an awesome history, and where she is now, and what she is doing is “her thang”.

    AWESOMELY AWFUL! Fantasia’s promoters are going to ruin her. That performance would have had her voted off of AI in her competition. She won b/c she sang jazz, the blues, ballads, etc. phenomenally well. What she sang Wednesday night was sh*t pure and simple. Anyone who thinks differently…well, let’s hope they are never in a decision-making capacity for our kids, the arts, etc.

    She looked drugged. I thought she was doing a musical number. That was just bizarre!!

    “Fantasia gives the music industry a bad name.”

    What?! Someone who’s career is based on raw talent, rather than looking like a supermodel, gives the industry a bad name? Someone taking risks, being funky, instead of performing paint-by-numbers pop bullshit, gives the industry a bad name? What gives the industry a bad name is when they find some pretty face to attach a bunch of studio technology to, so they can turn out a soulless, shrink-wrapped *product* for tin-eared sheeple like you.

    Erict Says:

    “I think she should go back to singing softer ballads. I think that is more her speed.”

    You’ve got it exactly backwards: it’s more *your* speed. It’s what your unsophisticated ear can handle.

    As soon as I heard that opening Clavinet riff, I knew we were in for something funky, and Fantasia delivered with total authority, presiding over the groove like a female James Brown. This is a black woman singing black music. If you can’t appreciate that, it’s your loss, not hers. Consider yourself fortunate that part of her huge stylistic range lies within your listening abilities.

    Her performance was awe-inspiring! The idiots (most people) will say they hated it, but that’s why they’re idiots. They have zero taste. Luckily, we intelligent folks were all blown away, and there are enough of us to make her a big star. The plebs can wail all they want about how much Fantasia sucks, but she’ll be too busy rolling in cash to care.
