    OK, well, not her! Forgot about her. I guess I was really just thinking of Mandisa (although I didn't catch all of her performance), Paris and Lisa.. Not real crazy about Kinnik Sky (who sang Get Here) either, but I just didn't care for any of the white girls, they all got on my nerves.

    Yes the two young girls did amazing. Problem is.. Very similar and can they grow or have they peaked. Remember Clay.. From where is was to where he ended up. He grew and that is important.

    Ace... I think he has potential. Strong voice. Going to get a lot of votes from the female population.

    The first singer last night. Piano Man I think has some potential but poor song choices.

    I personally did not find any of the guys being at the top of their game. I think too many of them tried to show their flexiability and thus made wrong song choices.

    Another one I felt did really good was the femal basketball player that sang a Mulan Song.

    So who will go.

    Females:
    Claw woman: (Wishful thinking and I find here very annoying)
    Opera woman: ( Hope not, would be interested to see what she does next)

    Male:
    The comic: He was just bad.
    Mr Smiles: I think he came of really condecending in is little speach. Not very likelable and very concieded. Nothing great in his voice from what I can see.

    I think it's safe to say there will be no "clawing" next week.

    Basically, Paula and Randy did not like the performance, and Simon said something along the lines of.. "Finally, we all agree!" :D

    Simon also said that there is a good chance she will not be around. She came back with America will choose comment. Simon fired back with, America has ears and they do listen to us. Something along the lines. She sucked... She is like that one last year that tried to act like Barbara Striesand.

    I was suprised they let her through, but my guess is for drama. Not even in the same league as most of the other contestents.

    Today "sway" sucked big-time. I think he's done this week. My favorite was #2 and #10 a close second. I cannot remember names to save my life.

    See ya

    Sway is gone and I hope chicken little. Yikes... Would not mind seeing Dean Martin go either.

    I liked #10 and #2 too. Also like the tone of the guy that sang Lady. If I was him I would give Josh Groban a try, I think his voice would be a good match.

    STill amazed they dumped Piano man and kept Sway, Chicken Little, and Dean.

    It's gonna be between the grandaughter of The Sounds of Blackness singer, Mandisa, and the Daughtry guy who blew the roof off with his power rock song to close the night last night.....

    I am going to make the bold prediction that Katherine McPhee will win or at least place second. I think she has the most class and pipes out of all of them. Her voice control is the best I've heard since Kelly Clarkson. She also looks fantastic.

    Katherine and Chris are my two favorites (Katherine has a look that you could see selling CDs with just her madeup face on a billboard)

    I agree with you. I think it will come down to Chris and Katherine. The only problem I see right now is that Chris could be backing himself in the the "rocker" corner. He's good but getting repetitious.

    I thought it was funny that Simon said something about how 'Creed would never be caught dead on this show!' :lol:

    Also, being a fan of Bo Bice from last year (and Chris, I guess I'm a little surprised you're not rooting for Kellie Pickler! ;)), I thought it was a big risk for Elliot to sing 'I Don't Want To Be', since Bo did so well with it. I liked Bo's version better.


    I'm not ashamed to say I'm a Taylor Hicks fan. :) Not saying I think he will win, necessarily, but he's my favorite. ;)

    Crap! Having Katherine in the bottom two last night really p'ed me off. What the heck is everything thinking? I guess my prediction may not come true. Oh well. :)

    Next to the other contestents last week. I have to say Katherine was no where near the bottom 2. I would have put at a minimum Buckey, Madusa or whatever her name is, Elliot, Pickler, Tyler, and Ace all below here. This week was definitely a weak week and there was no real stand outs.

    The problem with American Idol is that contrary to what Simon says, it is a popularity contest and things other than singing come into play. Pickler will go far because she has the likeability factor this will take here farther than she should go based on her singing.

    Well hopefully this is a weak up call and next week we should see better performances and Bucky really needs to go. Tyler is also wearing on me however I think he also as the likeability factor that wlll carry him a ways.

    Katherine, though one of the top female singers in the show in my opinion, does not come off as personable and I think that might do her in. Lets hope not because I think she has potential to have the WOW performance which I would say a number of the others do not. Chris has it also and Maybe Paris though I think she does not know who she is. Bucky, Pickler, Tyler, Ace, and Elliot I think have all peaked.
