My theory, then, is that because Paul Potts was a genuine sensation for Britain's Got Talent, they think the same deal will happen with Neal. They are WRONG. Partly because Neal is good but not sensational, but mostly because Americans really don't respond to operatic sounds unless they are done by a genius singer, and even then only once or twice a generation.

If is wasn't fixed, I have no theory whatsoever, since it is such a stupid idea to think he will be a Vegas hit.

Now, ELI! ELI!!! I expect an announcement very soon that some major label and major mangers..all that stuff, gets announced. If two weeks go by and we hear nothing like that, I....I....I....don't know what I will do, since I have no connections...but it will...dang...I can't even say,.

ElI! You are a major talent! You will be signed, ASAP, and you will do a tour opening for somebody major and appropriate.

Then your CD will come out and people will go crazy for it, and you will get major jobs singling, playing writing, scoring movie scores...on and on.

I am shocked as well. I really thought NBS was going to win this thing, everyone I heard from wanted them to win......except me.

If not NBS, I thoght for sure that Eli could win, but not Neal. I like Neal, and I love the song Nessun Dorma, but that's really the only operatic song we heard from him. If everyone was saying NBS was going to win and possibly Eli, how could Neal have won?

Eli just has to get a contract! I do have some of his performances in MP3 format.....I haven't listened to them yet, but I'm willing to email them to whoever should want them. I've never used any site for upload or download before, so I'm not sure I can do it that way.

I believe I have stalked every bit of MP3-ness that exists on Eli. If I get organized enough I will post the titles/versions I have. No hurry, though.

Color me shocked that NBS didn't win. I thought for sure they had it in the bag. I figured Eli and Queen Emily would be fighting it out for the runner-up spot.

You know last year the singer-songwriter guy also came in second.

I only have:

Against All Odds
"Sorry Seems to be the Hardest"

Waaahhhh, I thought he found more than that.....I'll have to check with him. Eli had a cd out titled 'Monsters', but I read on Facebook that he can't legally sell it now??? WTF?

My hubby said he didn't think the mp3's were good or he didn't think Eli sang well! WTH??? They sound great to me! He does have an odd sense for music though......... Laughing

Your pictures are very good!

I know there are many more mp3's out there, but I can't find them for download. Got any good sites you might want to share? I've been looking..........

I am no a good recordkeepr, alas..so I have no idea where I was finding them and I can't find them on my computer, either, alas.

So the search beings anew, just as a place to start:

I just found these (can't vouch for any of them):

http://www.guraristudios.com/Elimattson.html

http://www.imeem.com/kanthnaree/music/zY8lGX23/eli_mattson_smile/


http://www.imeem.com/kanthnaree/music/-FqP9UIR/eli_mattson_nobody_knows/

http://www.brinked.com/eli-mattson-walking-in-memphis---americas-got-talent-2008-m-16314.html

You can also set to play on his myspace page and use recording software to save them.

Here is a a start on that:
http://www.sound-recorder.com/

I have used this one, but not recently (it was fine):

I just read something I didn't know about Neal Boyd. His uncle is Dennis "Oil Can" Boyd who was a pitcher for The Red Sox.

interesting, Badger, thanks!

Related: I am rereading my college years' favorite novel, Kurt Vonnegut's Cat's Cradle.. ..

I'll explain how it relates when I am more awake.

OK, back to Eli.

Yep, I know it too. He will do very well in whatever niche suits him best. Of that I am certain.

Just guessing about that niche, I would say whatever performer-niche Dave Matthews is in. I don't actually know what that is these days.

From his own compositions... don't know enough about them yet, but if he turns out brilliant, than no telling how gigantic he will become.

Even if he turns out not a genius writer, his tone, and the feeling his tone and persona impart, I can absolutely see him being hired to write and sing film scores. He evokes emotional states brilliantly.

And on a personal level, I would pay to see him anywhere I had access to.

And if the double bill of Jason and Brooke was the warm up I would be in heaven.

Some Youtubes with Eli and Neal singing together.

They are not rehearsed enough, but I love the idea of them singing together and being pals.

If anybody had news of Eli, please post it.

Me too...........It's really hard finding out info on him too. If he has to record independantly, it's going to be a while. I'm hoping he's talking to companies.
