Like the poster before, I have to agree. She was amazing this week.

Here is the video. It includes her little blurb from before she performed where she talks about her wardrobe (adorable!). And it also includes the judges comments at the end.

Here is an article I found in which they talk about Paris staring in her high school's performance of "The Wiz", and they even did a small interview with her high school theater director.

And someone has opened a Paris Bennett Cafepress store. So now you can order your "Vote for Paris!" tshirts and buttons.

We all know Paris isn't going home this week. Who do you all think is?

Wasn''t she great tonight? I don't care what the judges say, she was naturally phenomenal. My only gripe is that I really wanted her to do the FLYYYYY!!!!! FLY!!!!!!! FLYYYYYYYY!!!

That would have been awesome!

Also, to the mod, I would love to do some icons and promo banners, Paris needs to be forceful on ElJay!

I'm glad to see so many new faces! Welcome. Please read the rules on the info page and then jump right in!

I wanted to share with you a little snippet concerning Take Five, a song that Paris sang at her first audition. According to a comment on this thread, Billie Holiday (whom Paris mentioned before she sang the song) never recorded Take Five. And the Wikipedia on Paris says that the instrumental version was recorded the year Billie Holiday died, so she couldn't have. I did find one interesting thing, however. On the iTunes music store I stumbled across an album called "If Only...Billie Unsung" by Thomasina, containing Take Five, and other songs sung by Billie Holiday. Did she sing it, did she not? Ah, who cares. :) Paris did, and beautifully so.
I posted the original instrumental version of the song in an earlier post, but if you would like a vocal version of the song, the Thomasina version is available for purchase on iTunes. If you don't have iTunes, and are curious...it is listed here on Amazon.com. Not currently available for purchase, but the track listing is there. Also, the lyrics to Take Five can be found here.

I'd like to ask that we keep any spoilers under a cut until Friday. This means anything about anything that happened on Tuesday or Wednesday MUST be under a cut until Friday of that week. This applies to any spoilery text within the comm itself. Links to spoilery info do not need to be cut- but they DO need a warning.
If you're unsure of how to lj cut, I've linked to the FAQ in the user info, or please ask and I'll be happy to help you. :) I'd like to do this because I'm one of those anal people who HATES it when people tell me what happened- I'd rather just watch it myself. And I know I'm not the only one, so my anal friends...this is for you. If you haven't seen an episode for some reason...be aware that this community may contain spoilers after Friday of that week's episode.

And now...
Cut for 2/14 & 2/15 spoilers.Collapse )

I also wanted to share with you...
Paris videos from this week: (These DO contain a small amount of information about the judging this week.)
Can't Fight the Moonlight.
Emotion.
Fever.

If you have anything to share/ask/add...please jump in! We want this comm to be active, no?

Welcome! This is a place for all those who watched the Greensboro auditions of American Idol season five and were just as smitten with Paris Bennett as I was- her humble demeanor, her infectious smile, and above all her amazing, soulful voice. Please feel free to discuss and contribute in any way you'd like (icons, videos, pics- anything! It's all about the Paris love). Community posting is restricted to members, but membership is open and unmoderated, so jump in! I'll continue to update as more information on Paris becomes available, but for now here are a couple tidbits to hold you over...


Paris Bennett article from idolgohome.com.

I've seen quite a few people on various message boards ask about the songs Paris sang in her audition. As your loving mod, I present you with a gift.

Cowboy Take me Away- by the Dixie Chicks

The second song she sang was called Take Five. It was originally released as an instrumental jazz song in the 50's by David Brubeck. However, I'm having an extreeeemely difficult time tracking down the Billie Holiday version. In the mean time, please enjoy the David Brubeck version of Take Five (which is fabulous), and the dazzling vocal stylings of miss Ann Nesby- Paris's grandmother. (Visit her official website for more information about her.)

Please comment if you download any of these so I can replace dead links.

And lastly, you want to see the audition clip again, don't you? Well, so do I. :)
You can find it here. Click the link to watch in the window, or right click save to download the quicktime file.
