    What I won't do for the AI groupies in this household.... :lol:

    Just corralled 4 Tix to the Tour show in our city - actually got some great seats. For kicks...tried 5 minutes later...was told they are almost sold out.

    I completely agree. I was actually really mad at myself. I voted for him 100 times the previous week and 50 times each of the two weeks before that but I forgot to vote this week. I thought for sure he was safe. He killed the Journey song this week. I cant believe I forgot to vote. Reminds me of when Daughtry left to early. Also makes me wish they had not wasted the save on Kasey. I dont even remember the rules maybe it was to late for them to be able to save James but it would of been nice to save him last night and eliminate 2 next week. I liked all 4 that were left but figured it was one of the girls going home for sure. James has nothing to look down on. He was amazing all season long and deserved to be there. I hope he has a great career and I look forward to buying some of his music down the road.

    You James fans seem to forget the type of show that AI is. He is very good, but he doesn't fit the mold they have made. That doesn't mean he won't have a good career, but he isn't the type the producers are looking for.

    I don’t know about that. The producers were “pimp’n” James big time as far as I’m concerned. From flaming pianos to pyrotechnics to marching bands. I just hope Steven Tyler still performs with James in the finale. If I recall correctly, Steven said he’d perform with James if he made it to the finale. I guess we’ll find out soon enough.

    James should have won it, or at least been in the final.

    I'm done with Idol - and not just for this season.

    James just didn't get any of the votes that Jacob was previously getting (they probably went to Haley). James also, even though the judges will never admit it, had 2 weeks where his singing was weak. The performances were strong, but the actual singing was pretty weak.

    James losing had NOTHING to do with his singing or performances or producers or judges...

    it was the american vote and like i said before, put the 4 of them together and who do you think "america" votes for...James has the BEST voice and entertainment value than the other three combined...it was his look, his background and where he comes from that got him voted off...American Idol has become a popularity contest and is beginning to have nothing to do with singing...that's why Simon left...its what you look like and where you come from that determines votes...

    this is a perfect example of why the judges need to have more power in who gets voted off...let's just be real for a moment...

    I think the top three is more like 2½ women. If Scotty does another pouty stare into the camera I think I’ll :barf:

    Scotty seems to be a lock for the finale. As for the ladies, it comes down to one show. The better singer next week will advance. I sure hope they pick good songs.

    It doesn't matter what Hayley picks - Randy and Jennifer will hate at least one of her choices.

    Maybe so....now that Haley somehow survived despite not having the singing talent of at least 3-4 others who already departed...oh well.

    I've been a Haley fan from day one. IMHO the only other singer that she ever trailed was Pia. Against the likes of Lauren and Scotty, Haley is a shoo-in.

    I've never been a fan of James. Too much screeching; too much camera hogging, too cocky. He has gone out of his way to appear to be Adam 2.0. But maybe that's just me. I have been told by at least one here that I am tone deaf. :p

    IMHO, the voters see it my way ... at least as results go.

    Then why did the judges/producers pick him?

    Well since hes not in the final, do you think they'll still sing together?
