Hey everyone! This is totally off topic for this community and if this gets deleted I'll understand. But I'm doing my final paper in english on reality TV, and I'd really appreciate it if anyone who has time to answer the following questions. It shouldn't take anymore then 5 minutes and if it does I apoligize. Thank you so much :)

1) Do you watch reality TV? (if yes go to #2, no go to #4)
2) What show(s)?
3) Why do you watch them?
4) Why don't you watch reality TV?
5) Do you think the reality TV phase has gone overboard?
6) Is there any reality shows you think are staged or scripted? Which?
7) Which show(s) do you think are the worst and why?
8) Would you ever go on a reality show? Which?
9) Do you consider shows where the public votes (like American Idol), a reality show?
And do you think producers "fix" these shows?

I'm considering reality shows to be shows like "The bachelor" on ABC, to Fear Factor on NBC, to Real World and Newlyweds on MTV, Trading Spaces, Queer Eye..., and even the ESPN shows. I know theres tons out there.

Also if you wouldn't mind can you put your age bracket (see below), whether you have anyone under 18 in your household, and if your male or female.

10 & under
51 & up

Thank you so much to everyone who answers, it will help me out so much. Even if you don't want to answer all questions if you only will answer some that will help me, and if you prefer to e-mail me the answers or any additional comments please feel free, PHSDancer37@aol.com. Again thank you :)

Hey DiHards!
I just wanted to make a quick post to introduce myself. Name's Conor and I would love to be an official DiHard. I just got back from the Bakersfield concert but I'll update with that when I've got more than 2 min (which is what I have right now :P Talk to y'all later!

EDIT**Since nobody posted anything since my post, I'll just put the recap of the two days here. I'll try and make this as organized as I can. Hope it's not too bad. :) One more thing, I'm going mostly by I took so if the order isn't right (of performers) or someone is forgotten, please excuse.

Starting on Friday at around 12:30.
Mom picks me up from school. Load up the car. Get on the road. I've got my iPod going through the AI3 cd the whole way pretty much. Two hour drive to Bakersfield actually took about 4 and that sucked. We got to the hotel (btw, my mom wanted to get a hotel because she didn't want to drive back home after the concert for however many hours it would have been), checked in, got something to eat at the Wendy's across the road, and headed over to the show.

We got there a little late. I think Camille was onstage when we got in the place. We found are seats and, lo and behold, they were NOT 15 rows from the stage as I was told by the ticket-man, but were about 60 rows back (and in the friggin mezzanine!). I remember before we got there I was thinking about how it wasn't gonna be as cool because Matt wouldn't be there but as soon as I heard the singing, I totally forgot about it and was having a great time. JPL came out and sang "Superstition". It was really great how he (and everyone for that matter) improved since the last time I heard them. I was also bummed that I couldn't get any good pics because I was so far back. Anyway, JPL was awesome, running around through the crowd and everything. Then John Stevens came out and did "My Funny Valentine". I think he's the one who has grown and matured the most. His voice sounds a lot better. Real smooth operator, great performance. Then came George Huff. Another class act, super performance. "Ain't Too Proud to Beg". He did a great job and really worked the crowd well. Jasmine Trias followed. I can't remember the song, unfortunately, but she is still really solid. Great voice and loads of talent. Then, one of the major highlights, DIANA! Dreams was definately awesome. Like Newsgirl said, it was great to hear her (and all of them) sing IRL. She was so cute too, saying "Hi" to everybody, and just being her usual down to earth great self. Fantasia did dreams which I enjoyed (for the most part). She does this awful screeching thing but other than that, it was a good performance. Intermission.

I got myself a buncha posters and pictures. I got the tour poster with all of them, Diana's big poster, and a picture of George and one of Jasmine.

Back to seat. More great music. JPL's version of "Hey Ya" was so awesome. When it started all slow, I was thinking, "I've heard these words before" and when it started up, I was just grinning from ear to ear. Then "Johnny Red" did "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" with Fantasia. That was great because I love the song and John is really cool. They performed well together. Then Diana did "Heard it Through the Grapevine" with George, John, and JPL. It was really excellent. I loved how they got each section to sing along and see who did better. It was a lot of fun and they did really well. Then the big finale, "Ain't No Mountain High Enough". Just spectacular.

I know I left out a lot of performances but they were all good and I enjoyed the whole thing.

I didn't realize how sad I would be about it later, but I didn't even think to look around to see if I could catch any of them for photos or autographs or anything. I know my mom would have waited around too, because she's great like that. I'll be kicking myself for a *LONG* time for not going for it. So if you had any contact (visual, photo, physical, w/e) don't feel too bad, cuz you got more than I did. *sob*

The rest of the night was pretty chill. I took a LOAD of photographs just of the hotel and stuff because I love those kind of night shots. I'm working on putting them up to a website so if you ask nicely, I'll tell you where they'll be. ;)

One of the great things about the concert was seeing so many people in my demographic (particularly 17 y/o male). I thought it would be nothing but girls and little girls. Nice surprise to see I wasn't the only guy (although quite a few were there with dates). BTW, did anyone else go to the Bakersfield show??

Definately a great trip. Best night ever.

Hello! I am new to the community. I love Diana!! For my birthday, my dad got me tickets to go see American Idol on tour 2ND ROW!! :X When I got there, I was FREAKING OUT..but guess what. It was in Detroit...you know how she fell down the stairs in Grand Rapids? Well, she was hurt, and only sang a few songs, sitting down. I was so disappointed!! So my friend and I wrote on a napkin, "Get well Diana! We love you! You're our favorite! God bless you! I'll pray for you!", and we gave it to this guy and he said he'd give it to her!! I was like yay! :D But I did have a good time. I smiled at Fantasia really big, and she smiled back really big, and John Stevens sang to my friend and I!! I was very blessed to be able to go. I am 16 years old, and I also love to sing. I might be trying out next year for American Idol. :O

In Christ,

Detrioit! [29 Jul 2004|12:52am]

Diana sang "Dreams" tonight on a couch. She said that she "had a fight with the stairs." and was unable to perform in the whole show. She also thanked idol forums (IDF w00t!) and her fans for their support and stuff. Then she came back out at the end for the finale.

Does anyone know anything about the vigil at the hotel? I haven't heard anything except from the press release. I think thats funniest thing evar. You know you've made it when you're fans hold a vigil for you after you've fallen down a flight of stairs...

Press Release [28 Jul 2004|05:37pm]

Diana DeGarmo Recovering From Fall at Grand Rapids' Van Andel Arena
Wednesday July 28, 5:05 pm ET

LOS ANGELES, July 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Diana DeGarmo is recovering this morning from a fall last night (July 27,2004) on stage at Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The 17-year-old "American Idol" finalist fell down a long flight of stairs while singing a verse of the Beyonci Knowles hit "Crazy in Love" during the "American Idols Live" tour.

DeGarmo must have heard the phrase "the show must go on," because despite the fall, she finished the song and left the stage under her own power. After her graceful exit, performer LaToya London dedicated the next song to Diana. The show continued without DeGarmo, who is normally on stage with all of the third season "Idol" finalists for the finale.

Backstage, Diana was clearly in pain and was taken by medics to a local hospital. After a series of x-rays, it was determined that DeGarmo was badly bruised, but had not broken anything. She was given a set of crutches and doctors advised her not to perform tonight at the "American Idols Live" show at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit. DeGarmo made a personal decision to sing tonight and will go on stage to perform one song, "Dreams." That's her hit RCA single, which has been No. 2 on Billboard's Hot 100 Singles Sales chart for three weeks in a row, and is already one of the best-selling singles of 2004.

Last night, fans kept a vigil at the hotel where the "American Idol" performers were staying in Michigan, and Diana and her mother Brenda expressed thanks to all of Diana's fans for their support.

What a trooper. Diana is my idol. lol Diana and her mother Brenda expressed thanks to all of Diana's fans for their support.

i just took diana and fantasia's versions of "i believe" and mixed them together. i think it turned out fairly decent. some of the transitions are a little rough, but other than that, it sounds pretty good.

it's here if you wanna listen to it.

Eee! Diana Video! [16 Jul 2004|02:50am]

[ mood | sleepy ]

Everyone must go here and download the video of Diana singing "I Believe" at her hometown birthday party. It is seriously incredible. I no lie, had to catch my breath after watching it.

Also, Billboard board did a reaaaaaally great interview with Diana that you can find on their website. It's super long, but totally worth the read.
