Bo Bice returns to 'Idol'

145842__bo_lWhen Bo Bice released his new video (for ”The Real Thing”) last week, I might have called its scenario wishful thinking: You’re being pursued by paparazzi and young girls? Yeah, right. Then again, the video was No. 1 on MTV’s TRL by Tuesday. And tonight, Bo goes home to American Idol to sing the power ballad on the results show. You can see the video at Bice’s website (click the link marked ”Media”).

Then tell us: Are you feelin’ Bo? Are you happy to see him back on Idol? Still bitter that he lost to Carrie Underwood? Or do you want him to return to whatever rock Clive Davis was hiding him under for the past few months?

    I love Bo and have followed his career avidly since idol. Yeah, I’m still bitter that Carrie won. I don’t think she deserved it over Bo. I predict a long and sucessful music career for Bo. He has not only the voice, but the rare ability to connect with his audience during live performances. He is also incredibly versatile and gifted.

    I think Bo’s Idol appearance will be a good thing for him and his CD. I love Bo, his voice, his humility, sense of humor and his obvious love for his fans. The man is grateful for everything that has happened to him and doesn’t let an opportunity to express that pass by

    I love Bo, an dwill watch tonight. I can’t say that I’m sorry he didn’t win AI, since I think it would have hurt him more than helped. I didn’t care for Carrie, but she was more AI moldable. Bo needs to do what he needs to do for Clive, then rock to his own tune.

    say what you will about carrie, but she’s got a top 10 album. sales alone prove she was the more popular of the two. i think bo is great, don’t get me wrong, but last year’s contest is over. stop comparing.

    I am very pleased that I had the opportunity to watch American Idol and see such an incredibly talented musician. Then to learn that as a human being, he is even more incredible. I hope this lastest round of news events will remember his personal contributions to the Katrina victims – returning to the 9/11 Syracuse AI fundraising concert, his own concert in Birmingham, lending his Helena house to a displaced family. His voice is an instrument, his heart is gold. I wish this young man all the success that he wants.

    I was hoping if Carrie won that Bo would have more say over his career but after watching a special on CMT, it doesn’t look that way. If he can survive this one album, maybe he can break free like alot of the former Idol contestants. It’s gotten to the point where I don’t want the ones I like to win so they don’t have to do the dog and pony show afterwards. AI is great for singers but not if you want to write your own songs and perform them.

    I love Bo Bice, as much for his heart and soul as for his amazing voice. Just look at his eyes in the picture above and you’ll see the warmth that emanates from him. As a performer, he’s thrilling to watch! I saw him at Cleveland’s House of Blues in February, and it was the best concert I’ve ever seen. The energy, the charisma, that great voice — Bo’s fantastic! I’m really, REALLY over the Carrie comparison. I can’t wait to see Bo on American Idol again tonight!

    I like Bo and I think he’s gonna do great on Idol. I watched the guys last night and it was bo-ring. Bo’s cool.

    Carrie can dutifully perform those produced-in-a-factory “hits” but watching a stump rot is more interesting than having to endure her performing. Country music thinks it needs these silly crossover performers so, they can have her. Carrie has a convenient pull-string in her back that the producers and handlers pull when they want her to do what they want. I’ll keep Bo ’cause he’s the real deal.

    Bo’s albulm is excellent. I love Bo, and will be watching tonight. I’m over Carrie winning, and now hoping the Hickler doesn’t win this year.

    I am a huge fan on American Idol, although I didnt watch the first season,(thank God with Justin–YUCK) ever since I have been hooked!!! I was torn with Bo and Carrie last year, they both were great, but I knew that Carrie was going to win, and she is doing great! I am glad Bo is getting back into the spotlight!!! Looking forward to seeing him on tonights show! The girls (Mandeza and Paris) are better than the guys, but there are some guys that really are showing they got it as well! Looking forward to tonight!

  • Lola

    The Carrie comparisons are so last year! I never understand the infighting. Bo was my favorite but I’m happy for Carrie’s success. It doesn’t detract from Bo as they are makig careers in different genres. Meantime, I can’t wait to see Bo again tonight. He is so much better than any of this year’s guys.

  • Alice

    I am very happy that Bo will be back on American Idol. No one this year has the charisma and ability to grab an audience that Bo does. The AI5 contestants could learn a lesson or two from both Carrie and Bo.
    By the way, Bo hasn’t been under a rock, he’s been out touring.
