Rock Star: INXS – J.D. Cops An Attitude

July 20, 2005 12:39 AM by Joe Blackmon

The judges continue to take it easy on the rock stars, doling out praise like “awesome”, “fantastic”, and “unbelievable.”  We’re ready for things to get a little tougher on the singers and to see some tempers start to flare.  It will be interesting to see how the other singers react to J.D. Fortune’s comments after his performance of “Hand in My Pocket.”

After INXS poured the praise on J.D., J.D. responded by taking a shot at his fellow competitors by saying, “while they’re learning the INXS songs, I know them because I love them.”  J.D. tried to cover by adding that he didn’t want to diss anyone, but his comments really couldn’t be looked at as anything other than a diss.  Maybe J.D. was so caught up in the praise from INXS that he overlooked that INXS gives virtually everyone in the competition over-the-top praise.

Two of the standout performances of the night were consistently great Jordis Unga who performed “The Reason.”  Dave  Navarro even mentioned that he didn’t like the song until he heard Jordis sing it.  Brandon Calhoun also had his strongest performance of the competition with a lively rendition of “Sweet Home Alabama.”

The weakest performance of the night belongs to Deanna Johnston, who just wasn’t into singing “The One I Love.”  Reality TV Magazine’s prediction for the bottom three are Deanna Johnston, Tara Sloan, and Heather Luttrell.

    Yes,J.D’s comments seemed arrogant,but he’s kind of right,though. I mean,this isn’t American idol,where they’re just competing for a record deal, they’re competing to join an already existing,successful band,taking the place of a frontman who killed himself. We’re talking about becoming an heir to someone who isn’t here anymore and trying to keep his legacy alive. This is a very serious thing,when you really think about it,and i almost found it a bit disrespectful that the band is trying to replace Michael at all,much less through a Reality Show. But if they’re going to,they need to get someone who was already a fan who knows their songs,and everything. I mean,how fair would it be to Michael if his replacement was someone who never even listened to INXS and was just using his band and the show to fulfill their own Rock N’ Roll dreams? To me,that’s not what the show is–or should be–about. I think they need someone who could kind of “fill in” for him and find a real connection with the band and fans the way that Bo Bice and Constantine Maroulis did with Skynrd and Queen and their fans when they faithfully covered their songs on AI. I mean,honestly,I haven’t really heard many INXS songs and the only contestants i’ve heard do them so far were in the Bottom 3,so it’s still a bit hard for me to really judge who the closest “heir” would be. But at least J.D. gets the seriousness of the whole situation and it shows how serious he is about everything how he takes control and does his own arrangements,instead of just doing “karaoke”. I mean,he does seem to know what he’s doing,but i guess he could save that for the performances…

    But just in case JD’s mouth does get him booted early,my second choice would be MiG Ayesa. He’s such a cutie and I love his voice and his stage presence…and he seems to have a better attitude… so he’d be my “fill-in”, just in case JD eats foot again and it comes back to kick him in the ass. But,hopefully,it won’t come to that.

    Go JD and MiG!!!

    JD’s got a great voice and he gave one of the best performances last night. However, I was turned-off by what he said. The guy seems to have an attitude.

    My faves so far are Jordis, MiG and Brandon. Great voices, great attitude, very cool!

    But still no one surpasses the talent of Mr. Bo Bice! How I wish he had joined Rockstar:INXS rather than American Idol. O well…

    I am a huuuuge Carrie Underwood fan but if Bo Bice joined this show he would kick some serious butt. All he would need to do is sing that Skynard tune and its over and JD dont let the door hit your foot which is in your mouth on the way out the door

    When i think about it,i guess JD’s comments were out of line. I mean,all the other contestants seemed to think it was so cool when he was called for an encore and the members of INXS already saw how serious he was by the way he took control of the arrangements,and everything,and we already knew he was a die-hard fan of the band by a bio thing on rockstar.msn.com, so I guess there was really no need to rub it all in. It’s cool if he’s really serious about filling in for one of his favorite singers who isn’t here anymore and isn’t just there for exposure or to fulfill his own dreams of being a rock star (which would be a bit disrespectful to the band, their fans, and most of all, to Michael), but his performances really could’ve spoken for themselves and he could’ve SHOWN all of that instead of actually SAYING it, so i don’t know. I still like the guy,but he could probably afford to sing more and talk less…if it isn’t too late already…

    If he did dig his own grave, I guess it’s go MiG!

    Still,I have to agree that if Bo Bice was here,there’d be no competition,especially with his A Capella “In a Dream”. Unless,of course,they also had Constantine Maroulis (who actually looks a little like Michael Hutchence,or has his hair,anyway) and he got to do an encore of “Bohemian Rhapsody” and maybe some Doors songs or something,instead of stupid showtunes and AI mush.

    But,anyway,I guess I still have to back J.D.,at least as a singer. But a little duct tape between performances could really come in handy :P.

    WHAT did JD get himself into? “WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS”??? Oh,man. All i can say is that he already showed that he can talk the talk. I guess we’ll see tomorrow if he can walk the walk…

    Where’s Constantine “Bohemian Rhapsody” Maroulis when you need him?

    …and we can’t forget Bo Bice…
