For what it's worth, Father Figure is also #40 on the iTunes Top 100 songs list. It really shot up after AI on Wednesday. Why else would anyone want to download a George Michael song otherwise? :lol:

Aww, I think he's ok. He's better than that red haired kid.

Agreed. My ex-roommate is making fun of me because I didn't like the crooner from last year but I like this guy. I don't know why.

On another note, while he has a great voice, how come the judges never seem to mention the pronounced lisp that Kevin has? He is a nice sweet kid but I get distracted by it when he sings.

Ace is a cutie...he doesn't have the best voice of the guys but it is decent enough that between that and his looks he will probably do well in the competition.

Down with Brenna!

I've kind of wondered about the lisp myself. I guess they figure he knows about it so why call attention to it.

I definitely didn't see anything else, besides the rumor. I think it's going to remain that. It would have been confirmed already anyway.

The rumor was that she was going to leave, and sue the show because it is coming off like they want to name a male idol this year.

We have a Pool at work for this crap. I drew Lisa Tucker. Does anybody here think she has a chance?

I think Lisa, Paris, and Mandesa will definately cruz throughout this show and end up being in the top 3. Kellie Pickler who sang "Lets give them something to talk about" has some spunk in her. The rest of the contestant are just plain boring and dull. :snooze: Brenna (aka Ms. Diva) and Kinnik will be better off if they start picking better songs to sing and show their full vocal range.

As for the guys, I really like Chris, Gedeon, Jose and Elliot. Ace is ok, he has the looks going for him though. He reminds me of Constantine from last year, but a lot cuter and better looking.

They were initially worried that her nerves woud get the best of her, but honestly, that's one of her endearing qualities. She's so real and humble.

I do have to say though. I heard some playbacks of the performances on the radio this morning. Frankly, Kelly didn't sound as good as she did on the show. I think her appearance and personality really has a lot to do wth her being a favorite (as Simon said).

I have to agree with you Trish. Nobody is blowing me away so far.
Kellie has the cute/hot factor going for her, as well as her background story. The 2 sixteen year olds, (Paris and Lisa) are incredibly talented, but I don't think we are going to see an Idol that young. Mandesa has the vocal chops, but not the looks of an Idol. Maybe one of the guys will jump out tonight.

I missed the ladies last night, but I caught the guys. I think Chris is the best I have seen this year. After tonight's show I want to know how some of those guys got that far...... there were some pretty horrible ones tonight ..... I think his name is Kevin. I am afraid it will be like that red headed John Stevens a couple seasons ago where he kept getting all those votes despite being horrible

ChocolateGirl
03-01-06, 09:50 PM
Wow I was pleasantly surprised. The guys performances tonight were better as a whole than the girls last night. :)

I think David the Crooner, Ace, and the geeky looking kid Kevin were the weakest performances of the night.

Despite his weird hair color, Taylor Hicks is slowly winning me over. He is really passionate about what he does. He is a throw back to R&B soul back in the 50's, 60's and 70's.

Does anyone else think that Gedeon smiles like the Joker from Batman? His performace along with Chris's hard core rock performance at the end I think were the 2 best performaces of the night. Jose and Elliot were equally great. Jose has a nice Falsetto voice. I love it when guys could hit those high pitched notes. ;)

Bucky? :lol:

The first four guys you listed, I agree with 100%. I think Will Makar, the Fred Savage look-a-like, could make it, too. He's the best of the teens there. After that, the sixth spot is up for grabs, imo.

From what I've heard about tonight, the only ones who didn't suck were Elliott and Chris. An overall sucky week, I guess.

keg411
03-01-06, 11:40 PM
Tonight was less painful than the girls.

I am among those who also kind of sort of like Bucky. Ace sang a song I hate and therefore the hotness factor went down. Elliot was completely awesome. I thought Wilma sounded good and was sad the judges thought he sucked. Chris was very very good, but it was weird to hear Fuel on AI.

David, Sway and Gideon need to go home. I think Kevin is actually 10 years old.

As for the girls, Paris is my favorite by far. I also like Ayla, but I fear for the day she shows up in a Red Sox hat (or shirt. Or jersey), because you know it's going to happen and then I'll have to hate her.

JfromJersey
03-02-06, 12:02 AM
Chris nailed it..the strongest performance of the night.
Elliot has the best voice, but he looked a little stiff tonight.
Ace looks great, and although he's not the strongest vocally, he knows how to sell himself on stage.
Gideon was the 2nd best performer on the show.
Taylor has that great personality but his act is starting to wear a bit thin.
Kevin can sing, but not good enough to overcome the geekiness factor.
Bucky doesn't impress me much, but he has that hillbilly rock thing going which a segment of the population probably likes.
The kid Will is kind of boring but he'll last because he appeals to the little girls.
Sway has that nice falsetto voice, but tonight was not one of his better performances. He may be gone.
David is my best bet to get the hook tomorrow.

Luvtino
03-02-06, 12:07 AM
The girls were eh. I am hoping Brenna goes home. She doesn't sing very well and her attitude stinks. Heather is sweet, but she's been pretty bad two weeks in a row so my guess is she goes this week or next. Neither belong in the final twelve.

I thought Melissa sang well once again, but she didn't get much air time and that combined with the fact that Simon isn't high on her could send her packing before the finals. Kinnick who is very classy doesn't seem long for the competition either.

Katherine, Lisa and Paris(like her, but more judge fave than mine) all sang well, but their song choice was poor this week. That said all should sail through to the final twelve. They deserve to. Kellie was much improved this week, but her voice is far from great. Her kindness and cuteness will carry her for a bit. I do think she will make it to the finals along with Mandisa and Ayla. Ayla has done very well thus far and Mandisa can flat out sing.

I hope we see better songs and performances next week.

Luvtino
03-02-06, 12:12 AM
LOVE Chris and Elliott. Chris was the best last night. Elliot was also up there on the food change. Taylor also got the job done. Ace had a rough time with the high notes in his song so he needs to be careful with song choice in the future, but these four will hopefully sail through to the final twelve.

Bucky is a sweetie and could appeal to the country crowd. He was one of the better ones last night. Sway has a nice voice, but that song has been sung tons of times over the years and better by quite a few. I would like to see him stick around because he will improve as the competition goes on.


Out of the teens I like Will best. I hope some of the teens don't make it to the finals over more deserving adults, but we have seen it happen before. Gedeon has a nice voice, but an odd look. It will be interesting to see how he does. He was also pretty cocky during the finals and I thought it might hurt him, but it didn't with the first vote.

I would like to see Kevin and David go tonight. Neither were impressive over the last two weeks so it's time.

I think Simon said something about being careful about song choice next time. He's right, because to sing that song he sang tonight, a guy would have to have his testicles removed.

I heard mp3's of Chris and Elliot's performances and they were the best. Will did fairly well, too.

03-02-06, 07:18 AM
Chris is my new favorite. I liked him before but I found myself watching his performance over and over. Something about him just draws me in.

I love Ace, but didn't love the song...however, my daughter may have found her favorite Idol and new favorite song. :lol:

I felt a little sorry for Kevin when Ryan compared him to Chicken Little.
David, one of my favorites from the start, sadly is not impressing anyone lately. He just wasn't into his performance and I feel he will go tonight.

Bucky doesn't do anything for me, even though he is a little similar to Bo Bice. I think Bo has a stronger voice and a better personality.

Btw, did anyone see Bo in the audience last night? They shoulda made him stand up and wave.

My predictions for tonight:
Girls...Brenna and Heather
Guys..David and Bucky (or Kevin possibly)

I may actually vote for someone this time. I really want that girl to win this. She really has an amazing voice.

Good for you. She's adorable and has some real talent. I think the biggest strike that she has against her is that a blonde country girl won last year. It may not be fair but I don't think America is going to go that route again. Kelly will probably get near the finals though.

For the girls, I still like Paris, Lisa, Mandeesa and Ayla. The rest I could leave.

For the men, Chris shot to the top of my list last night. I actually rewound and watched his performance again. He is the first one who has really "wowed" me so far. I also thought that Gideon was spectacular last night as well. I think I'm one of the few people not on the Eliot bandwagon. Poor little Kevin was not really good last night. He needs to stick with ballads, I think.

I thought he did well, not the greatest but still my favorite overall male singer. Simon however found him uninspiring. If I remember correctly, I think he questioned Taylor's song selection and told him to play more into his strengths.

I thought Sway was good and thought they were real harsh on him, to the point where it looked like they wanted him gone. He certainly has one of the better voices.

The best guy voice-wise is Elliott but his look doesn't fit. His voice is probably good enough to overcome it though.

Drum roll, please! Here's my take (I now you've all been waiting with baited breath--haha!):

Chris stole the show...what a powerhouse. I dig him.
Elliot has a beautiful voice, nothing what you'd expect coming out of that face! :lol:
Ace is definitely a fave :ga-ga: but was a bit flat last night.
Gideon surprised me last night. I hadn't cared for him at all, but he really brought it. He deserves to stick around. (Yes, CG, he does smile like the joker! :p )
Taylor has such a wonderful spirit and I think he's talented; he'll be around for awhile.
Kevin I like well enough to see stay around for a bit.
Bucky is not my cup of tea but I think he'll be around a bit longer.
Wilma sucks, in my view. Really pitiful.
Sway doesn't do it for me at all.
David also sucks, in my view.

I'd like to see David and Wilma voted off, but I think those young ones get their entire school community to vote for them over and over, that's why they stay around awhile. So we might see the likes of Sway and perhaps one of the other better singers voted off "unfairly". Someone like Bucky, perhaps.

I think America made a wrong choice with voting Sway off the show tonight. I think he could sing better than Kevin. Kevin is just getting sympathy votes for being an adorable cute puppy looking boy. That is pathetic. :o

David the Crooner being voted off was no surprise. He was boring with no charisma at all. :snooze: Heather choose to sing a Mariah Carey song that was too hard for her and out of her vocal range. Huge mistake by her.

Brenna did herself in by her Assertive, Cocky Ms. diva attitude. :uhh: She could have toned down a bit (especially with her profiling all the time for the cameras). Unfortunately America was turned off by her lack of humbleness. She could act that way once she had made it, but not during a competition. However, she has marketing potential in the music industry.

The right people went home tonight. And both bottom 3's were right too (although Melissa and Kinnick could've been interchangeable in there). David was in over his head, ditto Heather, Brenna was a bitch that couldn't back it up, and Sway murdered my eardrums last week and bored me this week.

But to answer this:


I don't understand your reasoning as to why Gedeon needs to go home?

Don't get me wrong, he can sing... but he creeps.me.out. The weird confidence, the way he talks... he's just really really really weird and really really weirds me out. What 17 year old talks like that. Or acts like that?

(although Melissa and Kinnick could've been interchangeable in there).

Melissa just needs more exposure. She's the one no one even saw before we got to the 24. Some of these contestants get huge coverage during auditions and/or Hollywood week, and by the time they get into the 24, America has had the opportunity to fall in love with them. Melissa is playing catch-up. I think she should be given a chance. Kinnick is a real snore. I just don't connect with her at all, and I think her voice is just a bit above average.

I was happy with the results this week. What a relief that Brenna got the boot. She's the only one I actually disliked (personality-wise). I remember last year watching Corny (whom I loathed) get through week after week with all that cheesy mugging for the camera and terrible vocals. It was so irritating! When he left, I could finally just sit back and enjoy the show. This year, I'll be able to do that earlier. I really like all of the contestants that are left, personality-wise. Hopefully the best singer will be the ones competing at the end.

When she was making her decidedly ungracious exit, I said to Mike, the only place America is going to see her is dancin' at the corner ti**y bar.

I agree with you Rita about Melissa...she is growing on me, and I think she should be around for awhile longer. Kinnick is ok, but doesn't really do anything for me either.

I was so glad that Brenna got the boot, and especially that she had the LOWEST vote total!

I really liked David but I think he changed from the time of the auditions (he had a happy go lucky look about him then) to the most recent performance.

It almost looked like his spirit was broken or that he was homesick. Maybe he just felt like he was out of his league or his element.

I felt like he really was glad to be going home. He seems like a nice kid.

Sway's elimination kind of surprised me. I thought he might have gotten another chance to pick a better song. Kevin is sweet but should have gone before Sway, IMO.

Good riddance to Brenna. Yuck. Heather was another who was in over her head.

As I said before, you can tell who is going to be bottom 3 by just calling all the numbers after the show. If it rings and rings without a busy, you can bet they aren't getting enough votes.

YankyDave

I feel kinda mean but I was hoping that Kevin would be the one to go this week. He wasn't very good this week and I just don't see him being the next American Idol. Ah well.

Paris - great personality, good voice, great stage presence, not the best choice of material

Lisa - another extremely talented teenager, who is also physically very attractive.

Melissa - pretty good voice, tried a bit too hard tonight. May not make it to next week.

Katherine - She and Kellie are the 2 best looking IMO. Has one of the best voices in the competition, and her stage presence has improved.

Kinnik - She was off tonight and will be gone on Thursday.

Ayla - She is a good performer, but she's a notch below some of the others. It's between her and Melissa as to who joins Kinnik in saying goodbye.

Mandisa - If looks weren't an issue she would win this competition by a landslide. She still might.

Kellie - She is not the best singer, but she seems to light up the stage when she performs. She is also cute, sexy, and has an adorable personality. I agree with Cowell. She is more likable than Carrie Underwood. She also has that underdog background story going for her.

Paris was an early favorite of mine but has disappointed the last few weeks.
Lisa is very good.
Mandisa is awesome. I wish looks and size didn't get ever get mentioned about her. Where would the world of music be without Aretha Franklin, for example? She is fantastic. Could win the whole thing.
Katharine is also wonderful. I really think she'll go very far in this.
I'm a fan of Melissa's, but I think she had the deck stacked against her from the start. She may be gone this week.

Mandisa nailed it. I was so happy for her. She is so talented and so kind. Katherine who has been one of my faves since the beginning was also vg. These were the two that stood out last night.

It will be interesting to see if there are any big upsets tonight. I agree with all who think Kinnick and Melissa will be gone. They just don't seem to have the fan base to carry them foward. Simon has been harsh towards Melissa since the beginning, but I do think Melissa sings well. I would be surprised if either were still standing come Thursday.

The only other one I could see possible going is Ayla, but her first two performances were very strong. She's sweet and very mature for her age. Hard not to like her.

Paris has really moved down on the food chain for me. She was great during her first auditiion and just so-so since then. LT is by far my fav amongst the teens, but she needs to pick better songs. Kellie doesn't annoy me like she does the others. I just hope she doesn't beat out others who are more talented than she is down the line because she is cute and fun.

I am psyched to see the men tonight!! :)

Pony-tail inbred guy isn't really good

Chris was awesome. He's probably my favorite, overall.
Kevin did a nice job with a favorite song of mine (it's about Vincent van Gogh, any of you young 'uns who don't know that!), but it might be time for him to go.
Elliot has one of the best, if not the best voices, but I think he sounded just okay tonight.
Bucky is just an average talent, but he'll get the hillbilly vote. :p
Taylor was awesome. I love that guy!
Wilma sucked big time. I hope he gets the heave ho this week!
Ace is smokin' hot. I think he did a great job!

Guys:
Chris
Elliot
Taylor

Girls:
Katharine
Mandisa

forgive me on the spellings of these names...

what was that song Chris sang tonight? I feel like I should have known it but didn't..definitely wasn't my favorite performance of his but it was tough to top last week. :)

I thought Ace was horrible. He has overdone the falsetto thing. I also would like the punch him in the face when he mugs for the camera so that doesn't help him.

I like Elliott and Taylor. Of course neither one of them is remotely marketable enough to put on their own album cover.

Gideon can sing but what's with the excessive pronunciation when he talks? It's odd.

Kevin and Bucky have to go. Kevin really should not pick a song with so many s's in it. I had to turn my head.

Haha, I agree. She grates on my nerves real bad.

I never saw someone look fascinated that she ate calamari and salmon. :wtf: She acts like this little girl who never sang in front of people, when meanwhile people found out that she was this big pageant girl. So yeah, imo, her whole "tee hee" act is just that, an act.

This was being discussed on the radio this morning...the DJ was saying how she had him convinced she was this sweet little girl out in the back yard with a wash tub doing her grandpa's shirts with no shoes, and now he finds out she was this Pagent Girl with expensive gowns and crowns and all...he went on and on about how she's all sweet and "Thayyynk Uuuuu" on camera, and then behind the scenes she probably telling everyone if they breathe a word about her being a pagent queen she'll kick their butts...:P

Does anyone have a link to the pics of her in the gowns and tiaras?

Chris, Taylor and Elliot are still my faves. They were all vg last night, but Taylor was the stand out. They should all sail through to the finals.

Ace will also sail through, but I see him a bit in the same way as I see Kellie. Sweet, cute and polite, but not the strongest voices in the competition. That said they will be in it for some time to come.

Gedeon is really growing on me. He's the best of the teens. He really should be safe. Will has gone down a bit on the food chain. He's not nearly as strong as I had hoped. Kevin is lucky to have gotten this far and he should get the boot tonight. Bucky's music isn't my style, but I do think he has done fairly well thus far. It was pretty funny when they bought his twin on stage. :lol:

Tonight should be the end for Kevin. Will should join him, but it could be Bucky hitting the road. It will be the teen vote versus the country vote. I hope we don't see any big upsets.

I can ask for it, I don't have it saved.

But seriously though I think it's just all an act for her to kiss up to America, and sadly people are buying it. And of course Simon wants a piece. The fact that he said he prefered her to CARRIE is just...I can't take his word seriously anymore. Carrie has a beautiful voice, Kellie just yells in the same note through each song.

Not surprised to see Kinnik go at all. Ayla had a bad song choice this week, but I was not really surprised to see her go. I was a bit surprised at her reaction though. She seemed so tough.

Will was pretty much a given, but I was sad to see Gedeon go. I really was starting to like him. Bucky was never a favorite of mine and I was kind of shocked the judges liked him so much. I didn't see what the big attraction was to him.

Bo Bice...love that guy...even though his live version was a little different from the recorded version, that's still one of my favorite songs. :)

You knew Kinnick didn't have a snowball's chance in hell of surviving. I figured it would come down to Ayla and Melissa, but thought Melissa would go as she has gotten so little screen time in additon to the fact that Simon doesn't like her. The only reason why I am not too upset about Ayla is because she has basketball and a scholarship to turn to now. Sweet and talented girl.

Will going was no shock, but once again Kevin escapes. Gedeon was a good singer and based on singing talent alone he should have remained in the competition. He just wasn't the most personable and it hurt him.

I didn't think any of these four would go to the end and win anyway.

I think y'all hatin Kelly cause you can't take a sweet real girl from the south.

Do you honestly think she SHOULD win the competition when comparing her singing abilities to Mandisa and Lisa Tucker? It depends on if the audience wants real talent versus another teeny pop singer like Jessica Simpson and Britney Spears. I'm sorry to offend you if you like teeny bop music.


Taylor looks like Jay Leno a little bit but without the chin.

Yeah I agree. :lol:

I missed the show this enitre week, so can someone please explain to me why Gedeon went home instead of Kevin? I really deep down inside feel that Simon, Paula and Randy did not want him in the final 24. This is something the producers of the show wanted to make America rally behind an underdog clay aiken guy who doesn't fit the role. He is there to be a idol for geeks across America to look up to. And if that was there original intention, I think that is totally wrong of them. Because I know there were other male contestants who sung A WHOLE LOT BETTER and could have made the top 24 in Kevin's place.

I know the format is different now but I liked when the judges had a chance to bring back one person each...

I actually like the format better now. Because back then, there were sometimes "stacked" groups and the Wildcard messed everything up. Like, in season 2, Ruben, Clay and Kimberley Locke were all in the same group (and there were a bunch of other talented people in that group too). And remember? They also brought back a bunch of people that didn't even make the semis and that's what brought the awful Carmen Rasmussen on us. In season three, Lisa Leuschner would have never had the incident where she was brought back for the wildcard round, praised, and then told she wasn't allowed to sing (and she most likely would've made the finals -- still the most "robbed" contestant in AI history).

Bottom line -- we're better off. Even if it means that Kevin Covais makes the finals over Gedeon (who was Cree.Pee. I don't care how talented he is. And I don't even like Kevin at all).

Let's start from the top.

Ace-Eh. He seemed off for most of the song and was clearly nervous.

Kellie-She sucks. Next please.

Elliott-He did fine, but was underwhelming tonight.

Mandisa-See Elliott.

Bucky-No...just say NO. The growls ruined for me. His hair amused me greatly, though.

Melissa-Boring and forgot the words.

Lisa-Good vocals. Overall, I was bored.

Kevin-I can not believe he sang Part Time Lover. It was not good and he's too young to sing this song.

Katharine-Best female vocals tonight.

Taylor-I'm not his biggest fan, but he was damn good.

Paris-Not bad, but it was just okay for me.

Chris-Totally hot, and my favorite of the night, but the RHCP saved his butt.

Overall, I was completely bored. I think almost everyone (except Pickler and Kevin) are much better than what they showed tonight. Stevie Wonder was not a good choice for the first theme night.

03-15-06, 08:46 AM
Definitely Chris, Katharine, and Taylor are the ones to beat. I love Mandisa, too, but she wasn't as good as those other 3 last night.

Kellie really sucks. I hope America is spared her fake cutesy dum-dum act by her getting voted off! If not her, then Kevin. I'm all for rooting for a guy from L.I., but the guy's way out of his league.

Ace--blah.
Bucky--one dimensional.
Lisa-- :snooze:
Paris--back to some of her old self; let's see next week.
Elliot--normally great, but sub-par last night.
Melissa--I can't believe Simon let her off so easy for forgetting the lyrics. That is inexcusable at this point. Also, when learning a new song, these singers should really understand what the song is about, not just "memorize". If she had done that, she would never have confused "Hope my premonition misses" with "Hope my recognition wishes" or whatever the hell she sang!:

"Lately, I have had the strangest feeling
With no vivid reason here to find
Yet the thought of losing youís been hanging
íround my mind

Far more frequently youíre wearing perfume
With you say no special place to go
But when I ask will you be coming back soon
You donít know, never know

Well, Iím a man of many wishes
Hope my premonition misses
But what I really feel my eyes wonít let me hide
'cause they always start to cry
'cause this time could mean goodbye

Lately Iíve been staring in the mirror
Very slowly picking me apart
Trying to tell myself I have no reason
With your heart

Just the other night while you were sleeping
I vaguely heard you whisper someoneís name
But when I ask you of the thoughts your keeping
You just say nothingís changed

Well, Iím a man of many wishes
I hope my premonition misses
But what I really feel my eyes wonít let me hide
'cause they always start to cry
'cause this time could mean goodbye, goodbye

Oh, Iím a man of many wishes
I hope my premonition misses
But what I really feel my eyes wonít let me hide
'cause they always start to cry
'cause this time could mean goodbye"

I love Taylor and hope he doesn't change his hair color. It's part of the whole Taylor package! I was hoping he'd whip out the harmonica during his song. I noticed he had it inhis hand but didn't play it.

Does anyone know how many are going home each week now? I don't remember if it's only one. (*Edit...I just checked the official website, it's one contestant and Stevie Wonder is singing on the show tonight!)

FWIW, Melissa was the only contestant that I never got a busy signal for, so she is probably going home tonght. Ace worried me a bit too because after a while I was able to get through 4 or 5 times in a row. Kevin's number was constantly busy but I did get through one or two times.
If it's only one contestant tonight, I'd say Melissa is a safe bet.

The 3 favorites (F & M)..
Katherine, Paris, and Mandisa
Chris, Taylor, and Ace
A female darkhorse could be Lisa.
I don't see a male darkhorse.

Elliot needed to really nail his Stevie Wonder last night and he didn't. He certainly won't get by on his looks.
Bucky's version of Superstition wasn't bad, but he is just not AI material.
Kevin is a novelty act. If enough 10 year old girls vote for him he'll last a while longer, but I'm on Simon's side in the matter of Kevin Covais.
Kellie was a fish out of water handling Stevie Wonder, but she still looks hot and that will keep her in the competition.
Melissa is the favorite to get ousted tonight. Her performance wasn't bad, but I don't think she has a fan base.

I thought Taylor looked very handsome. His hair was shorter and styled different, and I liked the jacket.
I heart him.

She wasn't seen until the semi-final rounds, so she doesn't have the advantage of some of the other contestants.

To stay, she needed to have a really good performance. Plus, she forgot the words to the song, which is inexcusable. I'm surprised Simon didn't call her on it.

I think he did say something about it...or someone did, IIRC.
In any case, Simon probably figured the votes would speak for themselves so there was no point in calling her on it.

Fuel has already put an offer on the table for him to be their new frontman. That's huge. :eek:

Fuel lost their front singer? If they hire an American Idol hack I wouldn't ever buy another of their records.

On a side note, if you're doing well in this show and you know people like you, why not hire an agent, drop out before it's over and get your own deal so you don't get stuck in the horrible contract they make you sign as a winner?

Chris is not just some hack. Simon has commented that Chris is really the only one who puts on a real life performance every time, not some karaoke bar performance.

I think Randy mentioned it, and she knew she forgot them. I don't hate her, but it's no excuse.

I think they might give Ace a good scare and stick him in the bottom three, just give him a wake up call. It might not help his nerves any, though. Someone get the boy some Xanax.

Agreed on all counts. I wouldn't judge someone based solely on them being on AI. There is a lot of good talent on this show. Chris should make it whether he wins or not.

I see Ace in much the same way as Kellie, but I thought Kellie was actually worse than Ace last night. Both are very sweet and very professional with some bad nerves. Both are also very good looking which will carry them for some time, but neither is a great singer and neither should win or even make it to the end.

I thought Kellie was awful last night. The whole dumb blonde girl shtick is getting really old, really fast.

Even as someone who likes Ace, that performance last night was not good. He would have been better off singing something mid-tempo, like Part Time Lover. I think he would have sold it well.

Kellie's very cute, and I think she'd make a good TV comedian in a sitcom or something like that. She reminds me of Dolly Parton, minus the boobs. And the talent...:lol:

But she's got a certain quality that is appealing in the right setting.

Regardless...now that people know how Fox and AI bends the winner over, if he's really good he should withdraw and go get his own contract.

I'll bet there are legal provisions in the agreements contestants sign to appear on the show that prevent that from happening in the later rounds. Could you imagine the show coming down to the final 2 contestants, and before the final showdown one of them quits? I have a suspision that the lawyers for AI have addressed that possible scenario.

I realized I don't know as many Stevie Wonder songs as I thought. :D

Katherine and Chris are still my favorites...also like Taylor, Elliott and Mandisa...

I can't believe noone sang my favorite Stevie song - "isn't she lovely" -- easy song to sing yet you can put some runs in there...and it's maybe one of the most beautiful songs ever. :)

I hope Kevin goes home tonight...it's time.

As Kevin has made it this far, I shouldn't even be surprised that he is still in it. I hope I am wrong, but I fear he is going to turn into another John and Carmen. Teens that stay far beyond when they should. It is already happening.

Not surprised to see Melissa go. It was just a matter of time. A little shocking to see Ace and LT in the bottom 3. Ace wasn't vg last night, but Kellie and Kevin were worse. And I didn't like LT's performance as much as the judges, but she was pretty good. It will be interesting to see if their fans step it up now.

I found it pretty ironic that the judges were pushing her to sing and dress a little bit more youthful and when she does she ends up in the bottom 3. Maybe the fans like her better singing ballads and wearing dresses. That might be her niche.

Did I call that or what?

The guy look terrified. :uhh:

Not surprised to see Melissa go home. You can't screw up lyrics to a Stevie Wonder song and get away with it.
