MS UNDERWOOD WON IDOL BUT COULD SHANIA HAVE


Watching what I personally feel is the strongest field EVER on idol the question came to my mind. If shania had just happened to have gone up against Carrie on the exact same show????????.  I know Shania has her weaknesses but man she has her strengths. I am trying not to be bias here. Try to picture a much younger Shania,drop dead beautiful,great stage presence,charming,funny,sexy,and can sing. Keep in mind..She like Carrie would have done country when they could ,but what would happen to her on special theme music nights where she could not do country..  I REALLY do not know on this.. Bottom line... your opinion is as good as anyone... Would Carrie have been more versatile and beat her or is it the exact opposite . Would Shania ever got past the audition or would she have never even been on the floor in the bottom 3... MAN... I really find this tough...Bob

Interesting concept Bob. Shania vs. Carrie on American Idol.

That was the year that I started watching Idol. I cheered for Carrie. BUT..... Carrie to this day has not vocally matured to what Shania's level was years ago. Don't get me wrong, Carrie has a strong , powerful voice and she has bettered herself with the second album. But in my opinion the song writters she has aren't giving her material that makes you want to listen over and over again.

Every song Shania has ever sung has been timeless. Her songs have been written by her, for her and about her(?). I can never hear her enough. As for Carrie, I don't mind fast forwarding a CD or changing the channel on the radio. She lacks the deep passion of Shania.

The one to watch in the future is Taylor Swift. She writes songs that have deep meaning. "Tear Drops" & "Our Song" show the ability this young lady has. If you've ever heard an interview with her, she is mature beyond her 18 years. What will she be like at 30?

Shania is an Island unto herself. If she could do Idol right now (interesting concept) vs. Carrie, how would she fare? Looks...she's never looked better. Songs? The best is yet to come.

I guess we'll die wondering.

This is the most absurd thread. Shania is a music icon known worldwide and changed the face of country music with her sound and music.
Shania has charisma that others could only dream of.
Underwood is a manufactured American Idol act who has no charisma and is told what to do by Nashville.
Like come on, did you see Underwood try and  perform at the grammys, she looked stiff as a board with no charisma and people were laughing at her that she was trying to copy Shania's outfit.
So please don't insult a music icon like Shania and even mentioned an American Idol act in the same sentence.

 Except for the fact that if American Idol (or "Canadian Idol") existed when Shania was young and undiscovered like Carrie was, Shania's mom would have made Eilleen be on the show.  So I can't see how you can knock Idol when it would have been something that Shania herself would have most likely participated in herself.

WOW...Chris... What a reply... Over the top..... Walter.... I do not take your response too serious  as I know you are a Carrie hater... Up... I kind of think you are thinking with your heart... Personally I think it would have been one H of a battle...Remember if they had gone each other on idol they would have been total unknowns.. It is easy now that Shania has become Shania to say she would have won but at that time when both we nobodys I think it would have been a real showdown  Bob

Sorry Up.. I should have commented on your thinking that her mom likely would have had her on the show. I think you are right on that call..  Anyhow. Some no doubt think I am off the wall on this but I don't..... Shanias FIRST audition...No band or music...She walks into a cold stark room.. She looks at Simons grim face.. He then says....Alright Eilleen,What are you going to sing for us?  ....One of my own songs..."The woman in me"... Simon...Oh this should be intresting and rolls his eyes.... Up to now... Might I be pretty close??... She sings(again NO MUSIC)... After 20 seconds.....OK  OK....Thats enough..... How old are you.... 19.................WHAT WOULD THE VOTE HAVE BEEN....... My guess 2-1 Yes....Simon would have been a big NO...He admits he hates country.....NOW... Once Shania got to the big idol stage with a band,with some sexy little outfit,cute yellow booties etc she could have worked the audience into a frenzy....BUT...Carrie and Bo were also great....MY CALL...A REAL CLOSE showdown....Bob

 Shania's sexy look would not be what sells her. It's icing on the cake, but.......

Carrie is a very beautiful woman. Your typical gorgeous blonde. That's not meant as any dig at all. She has a great personality. But she hasn't experienced life yet. Not her fault, it just takes time.

Shania's looks are summed up in one photo. Tommy just changed it, but it's the one where she leans up against that gold poll, wearing a gold dress. The look on her face...angelic perfection.

OK Chris.... Lets go at it here... I LOVE your posts BUT you are ducking my question. I stuck my neck out... "Close getting by Simon" in first audition... Is she so good that she would have blown the field(including) Carrie away, or too close to call,or not even top 10.... Remember thinking with brain not heart. Can't wait for this one.... Bob

Commander Bob:

Sorry for the delay. Been busy this week.

Not sure exactly what your saying here. If your saying would Shania get past the first round and blow away everybody including Carrie? Absolutley. This might shock Walter, but ST would only have to start singing for 15 seconds to win. Carrie is good, but she can't be compared to Shania. Five years from now, Carrie and Taylor (watch that one!) will be light years ahead of where they are now. They still will not be past Shania. In so many aspects of life, experience matters.

Shania sings from inside. Listen, really listen with no background noise, and hear what she says in the songs. That is the reason I love her music so much. She says things that register with me. I see this in Taylor Swift also.

There are tons of songs. What registers in your heart though? Gordon Lightfoot (a fellow Canadian to many of you) is where I started back in 1969' ish.

I'm a centimental, romantic type. It has gotten me nowhere in life, but I can live with myself.

You are joking right? Underwood is not  your typical gorgeous blonde. She has a stick for a body and has no personality at all. Please show me what personallity she has lol!!
And who cares about some manufactured AI act who needs nashville to survive to write her songs and produce her albums.
Shania is an outsider and does her own thing and changed the face of country music and created her own music with Mutt.
American Idol creates and manufactures acts and can make anyone a star.
But to be a real global superstar with charimsa you need to have what Shania has and thats why nobody is on her level or even close to it.

Reading these posts has been interesting. When it comes to Idol, I think Shania would have won because she is the one touched with "Stardust". She has a charisma that reaches out to you whenever she sings. I don't think it would be much of a competition really. I think Taylor has been touched with "Stardust" as well, there is a real charasmatic bond between her and her audience when she is on stage too. I like Carrie too....she has a powerful voice but as I have not seen her live I do not know what kind of bond there is between her and her audience. It seems to me that we will see a showdown between Carrie and Shania soon. When Shania releases her cd will she beat Carries 500,000 plus cds sales in her first week. I think Shania will beat this jmo. Time will tell how it fares.

Walter, I get it. You can't stand Carrie. But a stick? No, that is one hell of a body on her!

Ooops!   Shania is ok too. (SARCASM)

Hey Chris... Impressed with your Lightfoot reference... Now you are talking about a REAL Canadian instiution. No he does not have the sales of Shania but TRUST me on this one. When Gordon leaves this world the country will pretty much shut down in a day of mourning. I am a huge lightfoot fan. Seen him many times . He has touched Canadians like no artist EVER..That includes Shania.. Bob

What showdown? Shania is 42 years old and has nothing to prove. Shania already has all the sales records that nobody will touch. Shania only competes with  herself and is in a league of her own. even a greatest hits cd of old songs by Shania beat Underwood  hyped  new cd first week sales.
So there is no competition since Shania is global and does her own thing and set the standards nobody will touch.

lmao!!!! do you need a pair of glasses.
Underwood looks like a stick with no butt and no boobs.
She looks like a ten yearold boy up next to a gorgeous woman like Shania. Shania is sexy and Underwood is not even close to her.
You must be a really desperate man to think she has a good body. She may have an okay face( too long) but her body is like a stick with no curves.

I did not know that.

I'll have to get his newest CD. I did not know that either. I have all his albums, and I mean albums, up through "Gord's Gold". Also many of them on cassette tapes and some CD's.

Good memories. That man is a good writer!!

Eileen tops all. Karen Carpenter is the only voice that could have topped Shania. Melodies only. She had a flawless voice.

anyone can be made up to look half decent but Underwood has an ugly body and her face is too  long and horselike. I am a younger guy and don't find her attractive at all.
I find a natually beauty like Shania gorgeous with her filled out body.
Underwoods body is like a ten yearold boy.
Shania is a beauty and sexy and Underwood is average at best.
Maybe you should worry about misleading Shania fans about new music instead of caring what I think of an American idol puppet and Nashville puppet like Underwood.

WOW... All I wanted to know is who would have one idol  Carrie or Shania.... Having said that, if we want to twist things a bit ,this is something I watched recently on TV.... They were talking about a group a famous people in the entertainment industy gathered together for a sit down gala room dinner. The following in order are the top 3 females that will steal the night when they walk in to be seated at their table........"1(and they stressed BY FAR)......MADONNA
#2..... Julia Roberts and finally......#3....Faith Hill
Personally I understand their picks.... Lets face it... In the female catagory you really need to twig your brain to think who you would love to see walk in and dressed to the nines more than these 3... As far as Shania...This is a non starter.. She would have zero intrest in this type a function.....Bob

What show was this or are you just making up things again. Why would anyone mention Faith Hill? She is far,far down the list but she likes to go to these hollywood functions to be seen.
Whenever Shania makes appearances she takes the spotlight away from  everyone and people don't even look at Faith Hill.
so bob tell me what show did you  hear this on and what were the names of the commentators because I don't believe  you.

Sorry that I failed to document time date channel etc. What is the big deal...Having said that if you do not think that Madonna is the show stopper then you better broaden your music focus. As far as Faith I believe she was the highest grossing concert tour(any genre) in 2007...

Bob, you need a serious reality check, Faith Hill has never headlined her own tour on her own because she doesn't have the fan base.
Tim Mcgraw is the big draw on that tour, he is a proven  headliner on his  own.
Faith Hill can't support her own tour on her own and thats why she has never won Entertianer of the year. It is well known Tim Mcgraw is the big draw in that family.

I'm sorry.  It's just hard for me to believe that someone who loves country music doesn't even know who Gretchen Wilson is. 

And to answer your question...she's a country singer!

LMAO!!! Doesnt matter what you think, she has never supported her own tour and if she did it would be a small venue tour. She has never had the real big fan base of real big stars like Shania to pull it off.

Even  if I listen to country music sometime it doesn't mean I have to know who she is. It is not like she is somebody I should know.

Ok.  I'm sorry I judged...I guess just because I am one of the biggest country music fans you'll ever meet that's why I know who she is.
