American Idol

I thought i would chat about something other than exercise and healthy eating. We could all use a break from that for a moment.

So, did anyone watch Americon Idol last night? Any predictions on who is getting cut on Thursday? I think Brenna should go. I dont like her attitude/personality!

Oh, I'm all about this topic. Brenna definitely needs to go home. I think Heather Cox will go too. Her performance was terrible. I went to the taping of last night's show. It was SO fun to see everyone in person. Who are your favorites?

I really dislike Brenna. You can have spunk and personality without being so full of yourself. And stop posing so damn much! I agree that Heather's performances have been weak. The woman who went second last night and sang the country song that Simon sounded like a theme park show may go as well. I don't think the audience has connected with her yet, but I think vocally she is probably better than Heather based on last week's performance.

I thought last night's show was really boring - none of the ladies did very well. Some of them had good vocals, but boring performances. I hope they guys are a little more interesting tonight!

I agree about Brenna - her attitude is annoying and it is like she is trying too hard. I really like Paris and Lisa the best - and I think they're the youngest too!

To the previous poster - how cool that you went to the taping. When did they tape it? What was it like?

Definitely Brenna. Heather wasn't good, but I also thought the blond that they really like was horrible too. The young girls are good, and the last woman was good, but they were all really dull. I don't think any of the women sound as good as they have in the past.

Wednesday, March 01, 2006, 1:08 PM

Add comment I am feeling you guys...I want Breena to go! I also thought Kinnik's performance was bad. So they have my votes to leave. My favorite is Kathrine McPhee

I was bummed because I missed most of the show last night. I got to see Mandeeza sing and she did o.k. From what I've read here, it sure sounds like I didn't miss much. My favorite so far of the women is Paris but I like the basketball player too. She keeps surprising me, unfortunately, I think it says something that I can't remember her name. Brenna's definately gotta go. Besides her ridiculous attitude she has a horrible voice. I'm surprised she made it as far as she did!
As for the guys, there's a few that I think are really great. I kind of like Taylor Hicks because he's so quirky and he's got a decent voice. Unfortunately, i'm going to miss tonight too!

To the poster above, you need TIVO! I have a season pass for American Idol so that TIVO finds American Idol shows and automatically records them year after year.

My favs are McPhee and Taylor Hicks. They are both quirky and you can tell they have a real love for music. I CANNOT wait to see/hear Taylor Hicks sing tonight. Did you all know he already has an album out?

Hooray! Other people I can chat with about AI. :) Couldn't stand any of the girls last night. I think Kellie Pickler is cute, though, I love her accent. I am all for the guys. I have about 5 guys who I want to see go through all the way. I am still mourning the loss of Anwar Robinson from last year. :) I need to get over it, I know! :)

Brenna is so icky. She is such a bad example of womanhood and I DO NOT want the little girls of America thinking that acting like her will make them go far in life. Someone needs to burst her bubble - she SUCKS! (do i have a strong opinion here or what????)

Poor Brenna. My BF and I dislike her too. I'm a HUGE McPhee and Hicks fan, too! I also think Ace is really, REALLY hot. And he can sing!

I was disappointed in Paris's performance last night. She's soooo good but that was just the wrong song choice.

Does anyone else get the feeling that the judges don't like slow songs? I can't remember a single slow song performance that they like! They're much more into peppy tunes.

I wouldn't be into "Wind Beneath my Wings" either. I hated that song 20 years ago and it hasn't gotten better with age.

Boys Night on American Idol

Ok, so i only saw the last half hour. So, i got to see the small clips of each guy singing. any thoughts on who should be eliminated from the guys tonight?

I love this show!

I'm not to crazy about Sway. Last week he did decent, but he just doesn't do anything for me. I think he'll be voted off but I'm not sure who else. The guy with the huge smile can sing, but he bugs me. The way he talks and his ego is out of control. I LOVE Ace and Chris (? the one who sang last), they are both HOT. I really like Taylor Hicks too. I just love his style.

Girls: I HATE BRENNA. I agree w/the poster that said she needs to go so that little girls don't think its okay to act like that. She has a horrible personality and attitude and she doesn't even sing great. I'm surprised she made it to the finals. I love Mandisa, Lisa, Paris, and Katharine. I also think that Kellie Pickler is adorable, but not quite up as talented as the other girls. How can you not love her accent and innocence? :)

This is my first season watching and it's official....I'm addicted!

I love Taylor, but last night he didn't do as well as before.
CHRIS was "Smokin'" Tsssssssssssssssss!!!!

Most of the other guys were kind of okay, Elliott kind of scares me (he looks like a neanderthal), but I must admit, his voice was good last night. The "Crooner" guy at the end was awful... I am a swing / lounge music lover and he did not hit the mark at all...

Who is Brenna? Is she the Lion King girl? Out of the women, Paris and Mandisa both were pretty good, Although Paris seemed a little out of her element.

Sway and David have GOT to go! I'm tired of seeing that guy's crooner schtick. Chris was by far the BEST performance this week. Love him, love him, love him. He's just about the only person that chose a current song, and it was a breath of fresh air. I didn't like Ace's performance, but he's not losing my vote. Could he be any cuter?

The taping I went to was on Monday and then they aired the show on Tuesday. The theater was so small, only three rows of seats, so we were so close to everyone. We were right next to Simon and got to hear him chat all night during the breaks with Nigel, the producer, who sat right in front of us. Ryan messed up a couple times and they had to re-shoot, but other than that, there really wasn't much that happened that you guys didn't see on TV. Of course I got super excited when the guys came out to take their seats. Chris and Ace looked hot!

I love Elliott and the guy with the huge smile. Chris was good, but I thought Elliott sounded really strong. I have a crush on Chris, though!!!
I didn't like Ace and the crooner. The boy who looks like Peter Brady wasn't very good either. I thought that Bucky boy sounded pretty good last night, and I have to admit I like the boy who sand Heard it Through the Grapevine. While he didn't sound the best, I really like his personality, and his voice just surprises me.

I know Elliot isn't the best looking, but he was SO good last night. I love his voice and the song he picked was great. Ace might be too pretty for me, he looks better with his beanie on, don't you all think???

Ace most definitely looks better with his beanie on. That's about all I know about American Idol. Oh and that Elliot is the best guy there, by far.

I felt sorry for the "Chicken Little" kid-- that was mean of them to do that!!! I heard someone say that he was crying about it afterwards-- are the rumors true?

Am I the only person in God's Green Earth that really cannot stand Kellie Pickler? I really think she needs to go. She really doesn't sing all that well, and I think she's coasted along on her looks and her small-town-girl-sob story for long enough. I mean, come on, "I just ate my first spinach salad last night" after last week's "I am focusing on my relationship with my dad when I sing this song"??? Then, it was followed the next night by Bucky's admission that he also is bewildered by the food in Los Angeles. What's the deal? Maybe they can get together for dinner when they're both voted off and try some new stuff. Sorry for the rant - I work with a gal who can ONLY talk about Kellie and Bucky and how great they are and I get tired of hearing about them when they're already not my favorites.

I really enjoyed Mandisa's performance last week, and her one from this past Tuesday was enjoyable, but not as good. I like Melissa McGhee and Paris Bennet as well - I think they both performed well on Tuesday and hope that those three keep on.

I do, however, think the guys are more impressive than the gals this year - Taylor Hicks is interesting, and Chris Daughtry and Elliott Yamin are both great. Chris's was by far the best guy performance on Friday, but Elliott's was also good. He is easy to listen to.

Was Paula Abdul drunk last night?

Paula was on something at last night's results show. Everytime she talked she was babling and making off the wall comments. She was acting like a teenage girl drunk for the first time. Anybody else notice this?

I agree - there was something not right with Paula. She is usually so much more sensitive to the people who are leaving. Last night it almost seemed like she was laughing at their expense!

Paula's Behavior

That is so ironic. I just had the same conversation with a friend of mine. She was definitely acting a bit rude during this intense time for the finalists.

And what was she referring to when she said one person ate pizza and the other ate salad?

This is my guess: she's addicted to prescription pills. I worked with a woman who behaved the same way, and she was hooked on prescription medication...

Which girls are leaving?

Ok, I think the three with the lowest number of votes will be Kinnick, Melissa, and Ayla. What are your thoughts?

I thought Katherine and Mandissa were awesome. I think Kelly is adorable. And Lisa did really well also!

I agree about Kinnik, Melissa and Ayla. I think Kinnik and Melissa will go home though. Mandisa is the only one that really impressed me. So many of the girls seem to be holding back. Like they just do the moves and looks that they rehearse. They aren't feeling the music. I think Mandisa and Chris are the only ones who have actually conveyed some actual passion in their performances. They are my faves! PS - Did anyone else think Ayla's hair was weird?

Ayla's hair was weird. Mandisa was by far the best and the whole Kellie Pickler thing is starting to bug me. She really does not have that strong of a voice but everyone loves her because she's sooooooo cute. I don't ever think I will be able to watch this show again if she makes it into the top three.

I agree about Kellie. Her voice is not strong, she had pitch issues last night, and she's an idiot! She is the epitome of "dumb blonde"! And if the competition is about finding someone who's "original/unique" like the judges talk about, she is NOT it- she's Carrie Underwood II.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! I agree with you guys about Kellie. I was less than impressed with her from the jump and after last week's foray into California Cuisine and last night's post-song interview I simply cannot handle any more of her. Simon - "you're a minx"; Kellie - "a WHAT?". She's killing me with her "I'm dumb and not very talented, but I'm cute and have a sob story" routine. She's not really that cute, especially when she sings because her hair is continually in her face.

I do think that it will be Kinnik and Melissa, simply because Simon tore them up and it seems as though the girls that Simon hasn't liked have been the ones to go so far.

And yes, Ayla's hair was weird.

I'm not boy crazy, but I have always loved listening to men sing rather than women. I think they could dump most of the girls and have mostly guys in the top 12. Taylor's song was awesome even though his dancing is frightful. I still am a big fan of Elliot and Chris, too. I know Kevin is all cute, but he needs to go. He is just not good enough to be on the show!

Am I the only one that likes Bucky?? I know he's not uh..the most attrictive but I just think he's true to himself and has a nice sounding voice. Now he's not my favorite, I LOVE Taylor and Chris. I can't stand Gideon. Something about him just drives me nuts. I am not a fan of Ace at all either. He is always doing that longing eyes thing into the camera and its getting old. I think Kevin and WIll will leave next, although I wish it was Kevin and Gideon.

I know Kellie is an airhead but I just can't help but love her. My favorite is Katharine. Mandisa is awesome too, it will be interesting to see if America can get past the weight issue.

You guys shouldn't have gotten me started on this subject, I could go on forever :)

Final 12

So, what do you think abou the final 12? I am not surprised that Kinnick and Ayla got voted off tonight. I am surprised the Giddeon got voted off. I would've rather seen Bucky go! He is a bit too country for me!

I agree with the last night post about Kellie. I think she is an air head as well, and normally that would bother me, but i think she is really cute! I wouldn't predict her as the next American Idol or anything.

I love Katherine! She is great. Mandissa is awesome.

have you all heard of this website? it tells all AI haters who to vote for (usually the worst singers) right now they are telling people to vote for Kevin and kellie. Last year Scott Savol was the worst one, which is why he made it so far for so long. I would love to see a couple of the girls gone first. I like most of the boys a lot better.

I'm not surprised Ayla was voted off. My BF calls her Mrs. Roboto. She isn't convincing and is stiff on stage. And what was up with her hair/outfit on Tuesday?

Gedeon has a great voice but he's a few cards short of a deck... that painting and the description? Whew... what a nut job.

I was surprised Will Makar got voted off before Kevin Covais.

I agree that Kevin shouldn't have made it - he is cute but he is not really an american idol type. But I like him better than Will - his hair was terrible. Maybe that is the style for teenagers these days, but it looked like he had a curly cat on his head.

Kellie is terrible- she only has mediocre vocal talent and she is a complete numbskull. Kevin is a joke- he's nice and cute and all, and I would befriend the kid on the streets, but he should not be in this competition still. Elliot is totally underrated- he has the best vocals of anyone who has ever been on Am. Idol. I like Taylor, he is very unique and original. Melissa needs to go- forgetting lyrics TWICE?! and she had pitch issues. Ace is nice to look at, and I would let him serenade me, but he's not the best one there. There's my 2 cents.

Anyone else surprised Ace was in the bottom 3? I don't really care for Lisa, so that didn't bother me at all. I'm still hoping to lose Kevin and Kellie SOON!

I thought for certain, the bottom 3 would be Melissa (and kicked off), Kevin and Bucky last night... but I think Simon's Jessica Simpson joke provoked Bucky's fans to vote like crazy.

I was shocked to see Lisa in the bottom 3, not as shocked about Ace-- I did not like the songs he's chosen to sing during the last 2 weeks. And, come on-- if you pick a Michael Jackson song, why would you pick one that is so obscure?!

Taylor and Chris are my 2 favorite Guys and Elliot is growing on me, although he still looks scary to me!

Kellie is a complete airhead... (is this the role model I would want If I had a daughter?! NO!!)

I like Mandisa and Paris, very nice vocals, Katherine is kind of middle of the pack for me....Lisa is, too, but I was surprised she was in the bottom 3....

Kevin's lisping is really bothering me-- and I'm surprised he didn't get voted off for giving Simon some lip-- most years, the people with attidude are booted off rather quickly, so he better bite his tongue or he'll get the boot quickly...

Kellie is beyond an airhead. If I had a daughter, I would NOT want her to be a role model! She is so naive it is not even funny!

Kellie Quote, "I hope I'm not a Mink any more. I thought you were calling me a Fur Coat!"

Simon "MINX, not Mink!"

Bucky was the worst last night.

There is a website urging people to continue to vote for "Chicken Little" (Kevin).... they peg him as the worst, but I think that Bucky and Kellie were far worse last night.

My top 3 are Chris, Taylor and Katherine (in that order). Although Mandesa is also awesome. Her voice is so strong, and yes...she is a beautiful woman. Kelly, I think, plays on her naivete (sp?). She is naive, but it seems like she relies on that a bit too much. I bet she has gotten through alot in life by playing that card. The bottom 3, in my opinion should be Kevin, Lisa and Bucky (or Ace may find himself there again this week).

Kellie makes me crazy. She couldn't be any more of an airhead. Just because she is from the south means she doesn't know what a minx is?? Come on. Okay, Simon was calling you a fur coat...okay. Can't stand her antics one more week!
Love Taylor,and Katherine. They are both a little kooky and fun loving. They seem to have a love for music too.
I would like to see Bucky, Ace, Lisa and Kellie go. Then we have a show.

I used to think Kellie was cute and naive, now I just think she is just plain dumb. Sorry Kellie lovers, but there is not much up there underneath that fake blonde hair. :) I'm loving Chris, but when I tried to vote for him, it was busy all of the time, so I voted for Elliot a bunch. I know he won't make it till the end, but I think he deserves to stay on there longer than most.

Yeah, Kellie drives me nuts too, although she is pretty and has a nice voice. I am tired of her airhead comments.

Chris is my favorite. I really like Taylor too but I didn't think his performance last night was that great. I didn't like his song - it was very repetitive and kind of boring.

I agree with you guys about Kellie's antics - they really are getting to be too much. I truly think it was a gift from above when her microphone stopped working during the post-performance interview last night.

I think that Bucky did poorly last night. I also think that while Lisa is a good performer, she doesn't have the "wow" factor that will make folks vote for her. While Kellie's performance wasn't the worst of the show, I didn't appreciate her handling of the great Patsy Cline (falling on her knees - just like when she did Melissa Etheridge; and going up to the judges - puh-leeeease) - it just wasn't to my liking. I know that she'll stay on, I just really didn't like the way she sang that song. Some things are better left alone - I felt the same about Chris's version of "Walk the Line" - not the worst on the show, it's just such a classic that it doesn't seem right to mess with it. I usually really like Chris (still do, as a matter of fact), I just didn't like how he did that particular song.

Yay! I love American Idol

Mandesa is by far my favorite...she is so incredible, but my other tops are Chris, Katherine, and the younger girl who is not Lisa (and whose name I cannot think of!)

Not too impressed with Ace...I know hes a favorite of some but I dont know why! I agree with what everyone else said about the others who are not so good.

And with Kellie, didn't you totally love her at first for being so cute and having a dad in jail, I just want her to shut up!! :) Plus she's too similar to Carrie Underwood...blond country singer

I was kind of scared of Elliot at first, but I think the styllists and makeup people have done something with him-- he is looking much better (seems like the hair is a little longer, so the ears don't stick out as much--or maybe they are taping them back?! Also, his goatee made him look much nicer last night.

Taylor has a CD out prior to American Idol called "Under the Radar". I bought 2 copies (1 in case I ever meet him and can get it signed, the other to listen to.) He has a very unique voice-- much more so than Chris and Elliott.

Chris, however, seems to have all of the "commercial" sound, look and stage show down pat...

They all need to step it up. I think the finals may come down to Chris and Taylor....

All I gotta say is: It's about time! Kevin's a nice kid and all, but *did not* belong in the competition.

I thought Paris was awesome last night! Overall it seemed to be a night of very average performances. My guess is we're saying goodbye to Ace or Bucky tonight.

I thought most of the performances were terrible. Lisa was really out of tune, Bucky was awful, I usually like Chris, but he was way too hard for me last night. My favorite was Elliot. He really does have a great voice, but he CAN'T dance!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

I thought that all the performances were definitely not as good as normal. I was disappointed. I thought that Katherine and Elliott did pretty good. Chris did good too, but I think that the song was a little too "hard" for the American Idol show and fan base. He definitely has the potential to win though. It's amazing that he sounds like he could already be recording albums.

Chris' song choice was definately too hard. He sounded like he was screaming not singing. What happened to Mandisa? Not only does she risk alienating alot of people with her church song but she sounded way off through most of it. She has an amazing voice and I would like to see her in the top three!

I was proud of Mandisa for taking a risk and showing her faith. I felt badly that people misconstrued it. Paula's comment of "church of Mandisa" was really sad.

I thought Taylor did pretty well. I had never heard that song before, but he sang very well. Simon was ripping on his clothes though....

I thought the whole show last night was terrible!! Really boring, mediocre performances. I usually love Chris but his performance was not enjoyable - as others have said it was too hard.

I agree

I didn't love the performances last night either. Chris is still my favorite, but I am not a big fan of the Creed song he sang. I didn't know the song Taylor sang but I thought he sang it incredibly well. My tops are still (in this order)...
1. Chris
2. Katherine
3. Taylor
4. Elliott or Paris?? Not sure which

bye bye Bucky or Lisa tonight.

to the 11:28 poster, Mandisa sang a Contemporary Christian song that expressed her faith. She was trying to make a statement about what she believes, and instead, Paula said "Everyone is rushing to join the Church of Mandisa" (something really close to that, I can't remember exactly)

i just started watching a couple of weeks ago and I knew that katherine was a big favorite but I don't see (or hear) it. Maybe it was her earlier performances. She has a pleasant voice but she's not outstanding to me - Paris and Mandissa seem more uniqe to me. Chris is very talented - to say the least. Taylor is reallly fun .. but he doesn't seem to have the star quality.

Paris...the difference between her singing and speaking voice is crazy. I cannot stand to hear her speak. I just change the channel when she starts talking. Its like nails on a chalkboard. My favs are Taylor and Katherine. I just love how they are fun and really seem to have a love for music.

Katharine McPhee Bottom 3?

I couldn't believe it when i heard that! I love her. I am routing for her to go all the way.

However, I was not surprised that Lisa got the boot last night.

I was shocked to see Kat at the bottom 3.
I thought for sure it would be Lisa, Ace & Bucky.
(based on previous performances--I unfortunately missed it on Tuesday).

At any rate, I never thought KAT would be there!

My favorites are mostly the guys this year, (Elliott must have gotten a bit of a makeover--he looks less scary now.)

I like Taylor, Chris, Elliot, Kat, Mandisa & Paris
That's my top 6. :-)

Bottom 3?

I absolutely loved Katharine's performance. I also adored Chris' performance. It was nice to see him do something other than rock.

I think Taylor and Ace will be 2 of the bottom 3. Any thoughts?

I loved Chris and Katherine's performances also. I think both of them have the potential to win this...but Chris definitely.

I love, love, love Taylor...but his last 2 performances have been weak so I think he could possibly be in the bottom 3.

I'm did not love Bucky, Paris, or Mandisa's performance last night. I liked Taylor's performance, but I'm a sucker for John Denver. :) Catherine and Chris are still my favorites!!! I thought Elliott did well too.

Mandisa Gone!

I could hardly believe it when they announced that Mandisa was getting voted off. I wouldn't have guessed her at all. I know Simon didn't like her country performance. But, overall, she is much better than some. I would've thought that Taylor and Ace would've been in the bottom three. I expected Ace to get voted off since he'd been in the bottom three the past couple of weeks!

I was extremely shocked that the bottom 3 was NOT Kat, Ace & Bucky. I really don't even understand why Bucky is still around?! Although, yes, country is more his forte.

My hubby said that Taylor's performance was not great this week, but I know he has a huge fan base (I'm one of them, although I don't always vote).

I was beyond shocked to see Elliot, Mandisa and Paris in the bottom 3....and can't believe that Mandisa was voted off.

I'm becoming more and more convinced that American Idol is "rigged". I wouldn't be surprised if the person voted off has nothing to do with the votes at all. The fact that they say "the phone lines will be open for at least 2 hours" is really fishy. So are they open for 2 hours for Mandisa (who the producers might want off for whatever reason) but 4 hours for Kelly??? I think they have some control over the outcome, as they have an interest in keeping ratings up and eventually giving someone a record contract. I don't think the outcome is entirely left to America's votes... Bucky needs to go, so does Kelly. Mandisa did not deserve to go home.

I agree. I think it is somehow rigged. I think Mandisa had a good fan base. I was suprised to see Kat in the bottom last week. They are both much better than Bucky, Ace, and Kelly. I actually like Taylor or Kat for the win.

Simon's right on...

Although i rarely agree with what simon seems like the voters swing his way. He didn't care for Mandisa's performance and she is now voted off!

I really enjoyed Katharine's performance. I'd like her or Chris to go to the end. I've enjoyed their songs!

Kelly drives me crazy... she was cute for about 1 week and now it's just annoying how simple-minded she is! No strong female role-model in her shoes!!

Kat seems like the strongest woman left. I still like Taylor, and Chris, and Elliot... I was shocked to see Elliot on the bottom 3--He's been looking less scary to me over the past few weeks-- with the beard and I"m not sure what they've done, but his ears don't look so neanderthal any more either!

I'm a huge fan of Elliot. I didn't think he was as powerful Tuesday night, but I didn't think any of them were. Actually, I felt the two country "power houses" were the worst! Mandisa's song was cheesy, but her voice is so amazing. I'm not a huge Taylor fan, but I really don't like Bucky, Kelly, or Ace.

Queen Performances...

Who is your vote for the bottom 3? I think it will be Bucky and Ace. i dont know about a third. I thought Katharine did really well. I thought it was great that Chris did something different although Simon wished he would've done something well known. You just can't make Simon happy!

I thought Kellie was absolutely frightening last night. And I don't think she did a good job at all. I hope that Bucky finally gets out, Ace wasn't very good, and I still don't like Paris. I thought Elliot was fantastic and so I voted for him a bunch. Taylor was entertaining, too. I did feel sorry for Ace because the Queen guys were not very nice to him.

My vote for bottom 3,
Kelly, Bucky and Ace.
I hope either Bucky or Ace is gone.

Ace sounded downright weird at the end of the song when "mixing it up"....

What was up with Kelly? I think Simon was right-- she looked like the night of the living dead... LOL

Taylor rocked the house last night. I don't even know what song Chris sang, although it sounded okay. Paris & Elliot were okay and Katherine, too.

Although I was waiting for Simon to say something about Paris looking too old or whatever.

Simon was strange last night. Mostly 3 word comments from him!

I think it's these "theme" nights that are killing the good singers. Everyone gets stuck performing songs they would NEVER choose on their own and they can't do them very well.

I felt bad that Elliott was in the bottom 3. He didn't deserve that at all. He's fantastic.

Yes, Elliot doesn't have a great personality, but he's easier to stomach than most of them. (Kellie, Ace, and so on)

I can't believe Elliott's in the bottom 3! he was scary looking to me at first, but the make-over they've done on him has him looking a lot better now! His voice is way better than Ace & Bucky's--I place him within the top 5....

I would put them in order as Taylor, Kat, Chris, Elliott, Paris, Kellie, Ace. But I think they are going to get voted off in this order Ace, Paris, Elliott, Kellie, with Kat and Taylor in the final.

Rod Stewart

I am not very excited about this theme next week. I have not been that impressed with the themes this year. I feel like they were much broader in prior years. I thought they had themes like oldies, country, pop, etc. Now they are specific artists.

I agree - I really enjoyed all the performances. The best week so far. I wasn't looking forward to the Rod Stewart this week either, but it was great.

Kat should do musical theatre. Seriously, she would do much better on broadway than making records and giving concerts. She was really good, but then again, she always just stands there and sings. I still really want to see a guy win this year. I'm tired of the girls always winning.

Kellie sucked, but she'll probably stay on account of those pouty faces she kept making. At this point in the comepetition, with the caliber of singers left, you should not be making those kind of mistakes (pitch, getting ahead of the music)- she needs to go. I'm tired of her antics.

i was totally shocked too. I knew it wouldn't happen, but I wanted Kellie to get a dose of reality! She did a bad job, and she deserved to hear about it. Ace did deserve to go. I too was surprised to see Chris in the bottom. I thought his performance was awesome.

I completely agree with the pouty antics of Kelly being so so annoying. I'm done with her. She should have been in the bottom 3. I'm not real bothered Ace left, but Kelly was worse and she is irritating. Chris should have NEVER been in the bottom 3. He is one of my favorites!!! I love him, then Taylor, then Kat. Elliott is good too. I'm ready for Paris and Kelly to go.

It's totally rigged. I completely believe that the producers do whatever they want. They have to create a good *dramatic* show, and if it was what is expected/deserved every week, it would be boring. I'm so pissed Kellie is still there. She is TERRIBLE. It's ridiculous she's still there.

I can't believe I missed this week's idol!
What was the exact line-up?
Ace is gone now? Good riddance--he should have been out weeks ago.

Kellie is a joke-- apparently, there's a website trying to promote getting her to the top.

in a sense it is rigged, but i don't think by the producers. please go to and you will see how it is being rigged. people out there who hate AI vote for the worst (in this case Kellie) and that's why she is never in the bottom 3. She is terrible and should have been gone a long time ago, just like Scot Savol last year. that's why she is doing well.
