(Reuters) - "American Idol" host Ryan Seacrest will remain on the top-rated U.S. TV singing contest, the Fox television network said on Monday, ending speculation the popular personality might jump to a new show.
Seacrest has hosted "Idol" for 11 seasons and seen contestants such as Kelly Clarkson go on to singing stardom, Jennifer Hudson win an Oscar and Adam Lambert court controversy with his glam style.
I am another fan who loves NCOE. I love the words as well as the beat. It reminds me of moments in my life that I just didn't want to end. This song also makes me focus on living in the present. It is easy for me to worry about what will happen tomorrow and forget to enjoy what is right in front of me. I hate to see the song get so much dissing!
I LOVE NCOE. I hear Adam saying - live large and find joy in every precious moment of your life. NCOE/Adam speak to me. 8-)
I think most of us feel that way. The difference is we are talking about what is right for radio, not what song evokes strong emotions in the fans. That's where I think hard-core stans miss the purpose of a radio single. A single is not selected for the fans, it is selected for the masses.
Actually I take issue with this. Most of us? Generalizations are helpful only up to a point. I like Never Close Our Eyes very much on its own merits. I'm not supporting it as some generic song for the radio-listening masses who don't know any better.
Look, I absolutely expect/respect/encourage varying opinions on songs but I'm starting to be a little sensitive to the implication of some posts here that anyone who actually likes NCOE isn't as serious a fan and/or has pedestrian or unsophisticated taste in music. Really?
And, to show people do react differently, for me NCOE is extremely evocative - not just a good beat.
So a heartfelt thank you to everyone who is vigorously supporting NCOE for whatever reason (as I did BTIKM) but let's not assume it has no real supporters outside the Rebecca Black fan club, hmm?
I am on team "I Love This Song" ;D I sent an email to my local station asking them to play it. Adam in AZ..........PLEASE........DO NOT IGNORE I truly believe that AFL is going to CRACK THEIR FACE here in the desert Really, this album is AMAZING!!
You do not have to shout but if you want to chat....
evergreen: So glad the refresh issue is solved! I have one other issue - I have my password set to be saved. When I enter the site, I am asked to sign in. When I click to sign in, I am not taken to where I sign in. I'm taken straight to the menu.

minnie12: this is great, Sauli deserves the support. There's no negativity here and that's nice.

blueberry: A tech question. When I post, I'm stuck in BB Code, can't get back to Preview. Any ideas? I have Preview as default in my profile, but that doesn't help.
May 18, 2013 23:56:59 GMT -5
Q3: blueberry. there should be a two labels on tabs at the bottom of the REPLY box -- one labeled Preview and one labeled BBCode. Can you see these or are they gone?
May 19, 2013 2:08:40 GMT -5
blueberry: Q3, I can still see the labels, but when I click on the Preview label, nothing happens. And every time I start a new post, it automatically takes me to BB Code. Otherwise it doesn't matter, but posting pictures would be easier in Preview (copy+paste).
