I'm sort of glad that Colton apologized for his performances on Wed night... not for the fact that he did bad or anything, but that he was NOT himself. If you watched, he sang lady gaga's "bad romance" which is NOT a christian song and this lady is influencing million upon millions of young people to be "different" in a bad way. To look at life and accept EVERYTHING and I mean EVERYTHING for the way that it is.... We all know what this "includes". She is in a great spot to influence, it's just unfortunate that she is doing the absolute wrong thing with her time in fame.
Don't get me wrong, I absolutely agree with allowing kids grow up to be who they want to be and do what they want to do (within reason)... But when you start influencing kids that ANY and I stress ANY way of life is O.K. .... that's crossing the line.

The whole point is the kid was down on his knees praising God to the highest level in front of the entire country. Good for him , he slipped the night before but who hasn't. I was just glad to see God glorified.

Exactly what I was trying to say! As long as he stays grounded, I think he'll be a fantastic musician and singer. I personally would like to hear and see him go into Christian Music. If not that's ok, but making sure he stays positive and lyric-clean.

There are TONS of singers out there who are good clean singers, but they are not "Christian" singers persay. A good example is Sarah Evans. She's actually form a small town in Missouri called New Franklin... about 35 minutes away from where I live... Sarah always stays positive in her songs, and even though she does sing some love songs, they are appropriate for teenagers and young adults to hear. She will not cuss in her songs and she will not sing about drinking or cheating or anything else.

Another example is Will Smith. He was sort of a rapper/R & B guy. I'm not sure if he still does this, but at one time, all his songs were curse-word free. Even his movies for awhile were that way. He refused to cuss b/c of his children and because of the example he wants to set. I THINK, however, he has gone away from that... at least in the movies... Not sure he does any singing anymore.

Hellbilly you are absolutely correct. God has a plan! Daughtry isn't doing to bad even though he is not a Christian singer.
