Here we go again!
They added "Inspirational Songs" to "Leiber and Stoller"
James is my favorite but Scotty is good. I like Lauren as well but I wish she would try to hit some higher notes. I think she has it in here. Hayley I loved at the beginning of the season but kind of fizzled for me. I have to say though she is beautiful.
What they sang
[TABLE]Order Contestant Song (original artist)
1 James Durbin "Don't Stop Believin'" (Journey)
2 Haley Reinhart "Earth Song" (Michael Jackson)
3 Scotty McCreery "Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning)" (Alan Jackson)
4 Lauren Alaina "Anyway" (Martina McBride)
5 Haley Reinhart "I (Who Have Nothing)" (Ben E. King)
6 Scotty McCreery "Young Blood" (The Coasters)
7 Lauren Alaina "Trouble" (Elvis Presley)
8 James Durbin "Love Potion No. 9" (The Clovers)
The boys are safe. Either of them could win it.
I don't know which of the girls is going home. But neither of them was as strong as the boys . IMO.
It looks like Haley is gong home....but then again...there's that voting thingy...
Busy percentages as of 2153 EDT

James Durbin #2 25
Haley Reinhart 23
Lauren Alaina #2 23
Haley Reinhart #2 16
I have to give Doug credit. He called Scotty as a favorite a loooooobg time ago...and here he is on the verge of the top 3.
The household group voters view here...James, Scotty Alaina on top.
Then again....Daughtry was going to be a finalist shoe-in.... :shrug:
Scotty is awesome, but I am jaded by James.
An hour+ into the central and east time zone voting and it doesn't look good for Haley. Her busy percentages have dropped below 10% on both her lines (ranked 7 and 8). We'll see happens once the west coast starts voting
I absolutely do not understand why Randy and Jennifer didn't like Haley's first song! I thought she did a great job, and instead of commenting on her performance, they pulled out that tired and trite "wrong song choice" criticism. I felt like they've given her the most arbitrary and useless "help" of all of the remaining contestants, and can't understand it. At least Steven stood up for her ...
That being said, I thought James clearly won round 1, and Haley won round 2. I'm thinking James and Scotty for the finale.
Cuz I am still bitter about Pia (I know I'll shut up) I see James and Scotty going to top 2 and couldn't care less about either girls.
But my vote is on Pia and Casey! LOL
Probably Scotty but he doesn't need Idol winner in his resume, he'll be on a country radio station near you in no time.
And James is awesome but his "tick" are getting kinda old.... I know he can't help it. But he is an awesome performer.
Don't care for Scotty, all he sings is songs you talk not actually sing. He couldn't hit a high note if he had to. Pulling for Haley and James.
OK, lets see what the west coast votes do.
Doesn't look good but she was 5th last week dial Idol and finished top 3. I gave her 80 or so votes and had 1 busy signal west time zone. She gets very unfair criticism almost every week from Jennifer and Randy hurting her chances.
James hasn't had a bad performance all season.
Of course several of the finalists have ended up not winning and ended up with bigger careers than the winner.
My fear is Scottie will win even though he's a one trick pony. I'm not a country music fan but I can appreciate a good voice - he's not exceptional. Blake Shelton proved to me on The Voice that he has a great voice when he was singing "Crazy" with Christina, Adam and Ce-Lo. Scottie's not even close compared to Blake.
Scottie is average - James is far above average.
I had a hard time picking who won the first round. I thought Haley did great, but was the weakest of the four in round 1.
That being said Haley definitely won round 2.
Both girls nearly guaranteed to be in bottom two, with the order top to bottom (all close):
Twitter is abuzz over Haley. I think that will translate into more votes for her vs Lauren. The best thing about last night? No Jacob drama.
Yup, I picked Scotty nearly 2 months back and have never wavered:
I still say he is a lock. James should be #2, but I've den pleasantly surprised by both girls. Haley for 2 weeks now and Lauren last night. Either could squeak in next week ahead of James.
The only thing left that will shock me is if Scotty doesn't win.
If it ends up James and Scotty in the finale don't be surprised if James ends up winning. It could go either way. You have to consider the fact that the votes that Haley and Lauren are getting could swing to James. Haley is musically closer to James than Scotty. And Lauren leans towards pop and rock more than country. So those votes could swing to James as well.
And don't forget that Scotty could have a mediocre or bad performance in the finale. Remember Season 3? Diana DiGarmo was the odds on favorite over Fantasia according to all of the reviewers and boards. DiGarmo went off key so far her voice was on the East Coast and her body was on the West Coast. As soon as she went that off key she was doomed. Even the people that had been supporting her all season might have switched their votes to Fantasia because DiGarmo was so bad.
I couldn't disagree any more, other than Blake Shelton does have a great voice. James will not make final 2. It will will be him or Haley that go home tonight.
