R&B singer Monica's fans are in an uproar this morning after 'American Idol' host Randy Jackson seemed to diss the legend with his over-the-top praise for the off-key performance of 'American Idol' hopeful, Ashton Jones.

I didn't catch the episode last night, but loyal reader Trevino Allen did, and he caught me up to speed with what happened:

Trevino writes:

*Hey Sandra,

Did you see American Idol last night and how Randy tried to diss our girl Monica? One of the girls did "Love All Over Me" and Randy said that it's a good R and B song for Monica but he thinks that the girl is way bigger than a Monica record. I was pissed off for real. Then Randy and Jennifer go on to say that she (the girl) is like a Diana Ross. She couldn't even sing! Please!!!!!!! Randy Jackson don't know music. He just happy he still got a damn job. How you gone be on the show 10 years and you still making less money then the other 2 judges.

    Says the least paid person on the show. He's wacky and needs to keep his fat month shut.be will be replaced sooner then he thinks. Show sucks without Simon anyway.

    Who cares?!

    It's his opinion.

    :yawn: good morning

  • Daisy

    This chick can't sing better than Monica and I don't think she has the "it" either but I cld be wrong

    My female favs are Lauren/Thia and Naomi #AIdol

  • lovinme

    I love that song and I love Monica but this young lady's voice was beyond the song just my opinion though...
    Randy is right and Im not sure why your loyal reader took in Personal unless maybe he is on Monica's payroll...

    Im just saying this girl voice was too big for the song..

  • Dawn

    Randy Jackson don’t know music.
    _________

    Yes he does and he has the credentials and longevity which speaks for it self. Google it...

    Monica is a very talented vocalist but it is true she has yet to find her footing even after being in the record business for so long. She has a Good given voice and is careful not to let people manufacture her image so she will always be around. I do hope she gets a good record deal and puts out a project true to her instead of letting peope paint her in a box.

  • missbossE

    Wow. I like Monica
    But he's a judge so he can say what he wants (still least paid)

  • STL OPINION!

    UGH am i missin somethin but monica cant sing anymore her voice is SHOT an has been that way for awhile! When she sing live it always sound like she struggling!

  • nybrn2

    I luvs me some Monica. Lord knows I do but that chile did not sing better than Mo.

  • Genia

    First....WHAT DOES Randy do again?

    Second: What Monica was he referring to? cause surely you jest!

    Third: the only thing he got right, She does sound like Diana Ross...cause Diana was tone death too. Sorry Ms. Ross.

  • lovinme

    And to say the other judges get paid more and he been there longer. This is not an office job and you are not paid based on how long you been there. Jennifer and Steven Tyler are getting paid for their name . Shit Randy Jackson net worth is an estimated 40 Million Dollars Jennifer Lopez is at an estimated 110 Million and Steven Tyler or is llike 100 years old is estimated at 130 Million (not sure how accurate those are) but with that said there is a reason why they are paid more..

  • Luvmybabygirl samarra

    WOW..First of all, i love the song.. She was kinda flat. She can sing, i'll give her that but not better than Monica sang the damn song..She did nothing for the song and it did nothing for her..Oh well.
    #whogivesaFuk..

  • Terri B

    He wasn't saying she's better than Monica, he said she's bigger than a Monica record, meaning he thinks with her voice, that should should be aiming higher than that particular record. It's his way of saying you can do better, but he wasn't putting Monica down in the process.

  • gracenmercy

    :shrug:
    his opinion but Mo ripped that song n she did not, my opinion

  • Genia

    Define...Beyond the song...and too big for the song. Is that synonymous with can't sing? No shade seeking clarity on your statement

  • sugar.honey.iced.tea

    I thought I was the only Black person on the planet who wasn't impressed with Diana Ross' singing!

    :thumbsup:

  • http://www.ashland86.com TheRealAshland

    Omg, Monica's vocal ability is amazing not just in the studio but live as well, randy is obviously talking out of his big fat butt. Monica is a Grammy award winning artist. He's just trying to be popular and keep his job, that girl isn't on a vocal level to sing a song .

  • sugar.honey.iced.tea

    Not a big Monica fan, but she sang the hell outta Love All Over Me...this lady right here should probably stick to something simpler.

  • lovinme

    He was not saying Monica cant sing , he was simply saying this young womans voice was beyond the song and I think it was ..

    And trust me Monica would not give a hell if Our Boss or anyone for that matter told us someone did our job better then us so why even get all bent out of shape about this..

  • Mr.BluPhi

    I think he was referring to the particular track sang.
    And he was basically saying she's not an R&B singer.
    His opinion. I agreed with him more than any of the other judges. They need simon back

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wkEeNpWMvgk YSoSerious

    That girl wasn't that good. I can think of several that were much better than her last night. :shrugs:

    I've never been a big fan of Monica. :coffee:

  • Eb

    I agree with Randy

  • yallcrazy

    :popcorn:

  • jamil2008

    I dont doubt that Randy is a talented individual. However, as I've observed his judging over the years, he seems to be a person that doesnt really think before he speaks. His comments are often just off the dome with a lot of west-coast-wanna-be-cool jargin. Monica's voice is for more powerful than this young lady. But not to take anything away from her, she still did a good job with the song.

  • http://www.twitter.com/karazinatl KaraZ

    umm... *looks down at belly* I want her body. I think all the judges were right, including Randy. He did not diss Monica, he said the truth. This chick could easily do crossover 'pop'y records with her voice. Monica has a mature definitely R&B voice. I don't see Monice's voice/image going well with the cotton candy music that comes out these days, but I see this chick's voice blending with that easily.

    She does have great legs though, Im jealous. *munches coconut candy*

  • Dawn

    Hay Eb!

  • http://reverbnation.com/youngchuckietaylor BK2ATLMAN

    monica is not a legend.. lol I thought you might of been talking about another monica.. haha Monica is an ok singer, but she doesn't have any real range, every song of hers is the same tempo, which is cool. But the chick on that show has range, which monica doesn't have..

  • rjk8

    I haven't watched the show in years. But, if they don't have someone who's going to be bluntly honest, the show is going to be boring and doomed. She has an average voice and is a little ghetto. The rough ghetto edges can be smoothed out. I don't know about the voice.

  • http://www.twitter.com/karazinatl KaraZ

    Lord give me the strength to walk past some of these comments and not correct them, because people will take it the wrong way... Amen

    deaf

    jargon

  • lashellebelle

    Funny how the fans get more "pissed off" than the artists...
    If Monica didn't tweet about it, why ol' boy felt like he had to go off like that?

    Oh well. The chic didn't impress me. Randy can say what he wants... Monica is still going to get paid. All is well in MY world.

    Opinions are like a**holes, we all got 'em. #thatisall

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wkEeNpWMvgk YSoSerious

    I have to disagree. Monica's voice is above average. :coffee:

  • lashellebelle

    LMAO... I know right.
    #typomuch?

  • jazi65

    The girl has a nice voice but to diss Monica was so uncalled for. I guess he's trying to fill simon's shoes w/o sounding like an ass..sorry randy you're already an ass.

    As for Idol itself I predict that Jacob Lusk will take the crown. His rendition of God Bless the Child gave me chills (its on youtube)

  • nilano3

    I agree with you...WHEN exactly did Monica become a legend? In ghetto heaven maybe?

    Randy has worked with Mariah Carey, Aretha Franklin, Carlos Santana and many other TRUE legends. So yes, he is qualified to spot star (or lack of )star quality.

  • TruGemini

    Don't watch AI so I really can't speak on it HOWEVER is Monica really a "legend" :shrug: I think that term's pushing it a little

  • Anna

    He's way more than a judge. He has more credits than Steven Tyler, who I happen to have always liked.

  • AWESOME ARSENAL

    I've never watched AI and don't have any desire to.... :coffee: That attitude does hamper me when I'm blogging though............

  • http://www.twitter.com/karazinatl KaraZ

    Monica's too busy being in other people's business and taking tylenol for their headaches to have time to deal with her own isht.

    But there's nothing for her to take offense over if you ask me

  • Genia

    I don't know if this girl can sing....BUT i do know she couldn't sing THIS SONG......And in my world and IMO!! if you can sing...you can sing...I don't care whose song it is... Twinkle twinkle Little Star or Ava Maria....you don't get to sound like shyt and then blame it on the song you chose. ..

  • Terri B

    Have you ever heard someone who can really sing try to do someone else song and was disappointed because you've expected so much better from them. Because when that person sings their own songs, they can blow, but now that they're trying to do someone else song, who don't hear their whole potential in that song and that's because they are doing a song that wasn't meant for their particular voice. And that's all Randy was saying. He was talking about that particular track, and that particular kind of style of music. He was just saying, that is not your field of expertise for your type of voice.

  • candibfly

    i remember him saying 'don't get me wrong, i like monica' and 'that's a cool song for HER, but not u'

    quit startin stuff :coffee:

    he doesn't have to like monica, newsflash, some folks don't like her voice, me being one of them :coffee:

  • lashellebelle

    AGREED!
    Oh yeah, I forgot about the Ciara stuff the other day.
    Well HOPEFULLY she did realize that Randy wasn't down talkin' her. Cause he wasn't.

  • yvonne79

    :cosign: After checking out the first fifteen seconds of the video, this wasn't the song for her at all......

  • http://blogtalkradio.com/theolaandkeyshow daprinceofradio

    HOW EFFIN DARE RANDY! NO HE DID NOT!!!!!!! LIKE ARE YOU SERIOUS? MONICA'S SINGING IS BIGGER THAN J-LO THE CO-HOST OF IDOL!!!WTF!!!!!!!I FEEL SOME TYPE OF WAY! FOR REAL THEN J-LO NON SINGING AZZ GONNA CO-SIGN.... MONICA IF YOUR READING THIS ADDRESS THEM ON TWITTER.. BUMP THAT!

  • http://myspace.com/thegameoncw Bird

    All this time I thought she was a good singer. NOT. She butchered that song. Randy is right her voice is too big for that song. Its a soft song. The problem is that means she can't control her voice. She should be able to go soft when she needs to. The black guy with the church voice can do it and his voice is bigger than Patty LaBelle. Send her home.

  • http://chokolatemilk.blogspot.com Choco aka Hippie

    I sorta agree with what he is saying it's obvious she has range however I couldn't really get the real range becuz of the song she chose...

    WAT UP SR :waves:

    she isn't, but let this blog tell it she's the female michael jackson

    *wanting to hit the reply button*

    Hey Al. Good Morning. Is that a Thundercat?

  • Terri B

    Don't know much about her or how old she is, but I'm going to assume she's new to all of this. Most of the top singers today didn't come out the gate with the control they have, it was learned over time. It comes with experience, experince which she probably dosen't have yet, hence the reason she's even on this show.

  • yallcrazy

    You got it.

    (I always say that when somebody says what's up) :rofl:

  • http://myspace.com/thegameoncw Bird

    Child I am watching this season solely for Jacob. He is that rare gift who, of course, won't he supported by the R&B fans, many of whom have turned to the bootlegger exclusively for their music purchases. So if he goes far enough in this competition we might get one album out of him.

  • ALBoy

    Yes Its Panthro The Black Thundercat! whispers Ive been hitting it all day shhh :coffee:

  • http://pearlswindow.com Carrington

    I watched, and he didn't mean, you're better than "a" Monica song, he meant, you're voice is bigger than THAT particular Monica song.

    Although, I guess I'm alone in my thought process that a) Monica ain't no "legend" first and foremost b) that yodeling irks the $hit out of me and, even though she has a great voice, like Christina Aguilera, she never learned how to control it c) Anyone who can "sing" can sing a Monica song because it ain't like "Sideline Hoe" is some classic $hit. d) Monica COULD be a legend, but she spends waaay more time trying to prove to everybody that she's "real" than she does in the studio putting out quality music e) Monica ain't no legend f) Monica aint no legend.

    PS: Monica ain't no legend

    @ALBoy What did that say?! :lol:

  • http://pearlswindow.com Carrington

    SHE don't invest enough in Monica. The brand Monica has created for herself is one of being a "down a$$ chick" and "ghetto" - no matter what she tries to do, that's how she comes across and that's Monica's fault. She could do some good music if she wanted to, if she's a LEGEND and that down, then she could be gangster enough to have the pull to say, "Sideline Hoe" ain't going on my album.

    If she spent more time trying to get some quality music, instead of trying to prove something to people, she might have a chance.

    Personally, I think Brandy's music is MUCH better than Monica's (well, Brandy's last album was gobbage, but still)

  • 75north

    Monica is legendary for doing what? Having her career overshadowed by Brandy? Monica doesn't have not one song you'll want to hear twenty years from now. And nobody better not say nothing negative about "The Boss", Diana Ross!! Will Monica ever be inducted into the Rock 'N Roll Hall Of Fame? Monica can't even get inducted into the Fulton County Hall Of Fame! Legendary? Ha!

    Im probably the biggest Monica fan on this site and I will be the first to tell you that I personally dont think Monica is a legend. Yes, Monica has had lots of success. Im not going to waste my time explaining it to some of you because you dont follow music (beyond listening to radio or what u see on tv) so its pointless. Although Monica may not be of legend status YET, she is a VETERAN. You dont remain apart of this business for 16 years by not delivering hits. Im sorry, u dont. Men lie, women lie, but numbers dont. Before you try and down play Monica's success, check her resume. Ask Clive Davis why she has been signed to the SAME record lable family since she was 13 years old! The same lable your fav artist like Whitney Houston, Alicia Keys and Jennifer Hudson are signed to.

    If you dont think her voice is nothing special, cool thats your opinion. However the millions of people who have bought her records and heard her songs on the radio do. Perhaps thats why Everything To Me stayed number 1 for soo many weeks. Or perhaps thats why Billboard named her the 24th most influential R&B artist over the past 25 years. Over some of your favs like Brandy...who has bounced from record label to record label because she cant produce a hit. I digress...

    Instead of knocking Monica and tryin to tear her down, check her resume. Like I said, men lie, women lie, but numbers dont.

  • dallas214

    Oh and far as what Randy said...*kanyeshrug*...I dont think he was dissing Monica per se' but i do think he was basically saying Love All Over Me is just an ok r&b song and there is nothing special about it or the vocals from the person who sang it. I personally love the song, but do I think it was Monica's best vocal or an indication of what she can and has done? No. More often than not, allot of Monica's music is stuck in a box. Which is okay if your tryin to appeal to a certain demographic, i.e. black people who love r&b music. I do think going forward the goal is to broaden Monica's appeal and hopefully Polow Da Don can assist with giving her records that reach a broader audience.

  • Phrozen1der

    @ALBoy :rofl: Here are his thoughts on that:

    "Well, I mean, first of all come Wednesday morning they're gonna rename it Charlie Bros. and not Warner Bros. [Ed. note: This has not yet happened.] Duh, winning! It's, like, guys, IMDB right there, 62 movies and a ton of success. I mean, c'mon bro, I won best picture at 20. I wasn't even trying. I wasn't even warm."

    This girl can sing, BUT she ain't no Monica. I love Monica. Monica sings from the depth of her soul. She sings from her heart. I am so glad Monica is back. I don't think Randy was dissing Monica He was telling this girl in a way, that she needs to go in a different direction. Maybe i a misunderstanding what he said. oh well....oh by the way i love the song she just sang by Monica. I keep in repeat

    Hi Sandra Rose Family,

    I am a former lurker. Love the site and all the comments.

    @jazi65
    As for Idol itself I predict that Jacob Lusk will take the crown. His rendition of God Bless the Child gave me chills (its on youtube)

    Just You tube Jacob Lusk, and wow, he/she can sing!

  • alwaysnred

    Monica is a very talented singer having seen her sing in person many times the girl can really blow!!!! It's just said that today's music industry is so caught up in sex appeal the actual talent. "Love All Over Me" was a BIG record for Monica and so was "Still Standing" I'm so happy that she is about to drop a new album this summer "New Life" so all you Monica haters fall in line..lmao....and yes I'm Monica's biggest FAN!!!!

  • pv2forchrist

    For me as a trained vocalist, I loved American Idol..I always thought Simon = the A&R coaching (spotting a star), Paula = boost their confidence & performance, & Randy = For his "ear" & overall artistry...now I find myself agitated b/c Jennifer Lopez is not known for her singing..she has the audacity to tell others they can't sing or their voice isn't big enough..that truly bothers me..in which Paula NEVER told someone that...I think Ms. Abdul knew she wasn't known for her vocal chops aswell...I was hoping Mariah Carey would be a judge...sadly, JLO who has a "name"....the industry bothers me...& this is one that truly does...

    I didn't watch the show last night, but Randy was more then likely saying her range may be bigger then the song she chose... IE: if Monica was to sing a JLO or Ashanti song...get it? Some songs are mde for that one singer...look at Jodeci...Jojo vocals were crazy and the twin Dino from H-town "knocking the boots"...who can sing that song lol?

    God Bless you all! Much love,
    MKLS

  • Destinee

    I seen it last night and he was referring to her voice being too big for the song. He also said he like it better when Monica sang it.

  • pinky2083

    Were we watching the same show? Monica CAN sing. This chick butchered that song.

  • whowhatme

    I love that song by Monica, however Monica is like one of those acts you might see on Unsung. She's known, but not large. And I think he was saying she's bigger than selecting a song from an artist that's just known but not large. NOW, how's she's bigger than that, I don't know. Because I'm still baffled over how this chick got put into the top 12 because just about every song she's sung so far she's been flat on. I don't know what they hear that we don't.

    He's my favorite right now and I also love Thia. But I honestly will be surprised if they don't give it to Jacob.
