    I'm way tired of Ace too. With Bucky, closed captioning comes in handy.

    Ironically, that was Bucky's best singing in weeks.

    Rod Stewart next week?

    Here's to hoping that Chris does "Passion".

    OK, who has the cajones to sing "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy?"

    and if Ace tries to pout "Tonight's The Night" I think I'll be ill.....

    Taylor will probably do "Infatuation"

    From the promo. I get the impression they are going to be doing songs from his recent albums and those are all old songs redone. old classics I believe. If this is the case. I would expect Kathern and Elliot to shine. It would also be Tayler's week to take it to another level. My gut tells me he can't but next week gives him a huge opportunity to do it. Paris has been really good with older songs so she could also step out next week.

    Most of bucky votes should transfer over to Kelly. Never noticed 5 men and 3 woman until last night. Well my guess is Ace is going to get aced out next week.

    You're right, Ron. I got sidetracked by Bob's post and forgot. ;) Classics, that's what they said. :)

    Where do I start. I guess with last night. Recorded the "Who Gets Voted Off The Island" episode with DVR to FF thru the commercials. Guess what, it stopped recording the moment they were going to say who goes. I mean exactly at that moment. Fox must carry the show over by exactly one minute and the EPG didn't pick it up. There was not much happiness with the trophy bride and she had to call her sister to find out. Of course, that call lasted for 30 minutes.

    Next week's Rod Stewart show is obviously devoted to "classics" from the 50's guaranteed to put you to sleep. Pickler, Katherine, and Paris (especially if she does some jazzy number) will do well. I'm worried about Chris (my favorite) as the Live, Eddie Kowalczyk rip off does not translate well to "My Funny Valentine."

    I really expected better with the Queen songs (the week before with music from 2000 on was really bad..come-on "Bucket of Suds"?). Pickler's version of Bohemian Rhapsody was certainly brave and I was really worried she couldn't pull off a song with that range...but she did with excellent lighting (I like the change from "sweet young thing" to "goth"). Paris was a disappointment with show must go on, but she has a string of excellent weeks and will do fine. Katherine continues to be the "Girl Next Door" (I wish) and Tyler has the best stage presence of all. But over all, a waste of really good music.

    My final four...Chris, Pickler, Paris and Tyler. After that, it's March Madness in May and June.

    All I can hope for (besides Fox ending on time) is that the music themes they pick for the group causes stretch and forces the idols into music that is both relevant to them and entertaining for us. And Simon needs to stop tickling Paula.

    Ah, Paula, the best reason for the 30 second skip-forward.

    LOL.. I have found that very useful.. most of the time 30 seconds are perfect to skip over here non-useful comments.

    I think they are going to do some of the stuff that Rod has been doing in the past couple of years, which is mostly "classics" from the '40's or so.

    EDIT.. Ron beat me to it

    The words you all are looking for to describe the songs Rod Stewart has been singing lately is "Standards", not "classics". :)

    I am actually looking forward to this. This style of music requires talent. No amount of prancing, screaming or "rocking" will mask the short-fall in the talent.

    See ya

    I'm actually kind of disappointed, Rod Stewart has enough of his own classic songs that would be fun for them to do. I'd rather they do his songs rather than the standards he's been covering lately.

    [Sigh...] The rosy-cheeked eye-candy went home.. :(

    Although, I have to say, I like Adam Sandler's version of that song better than his.

    And what was up with Taylor picking the right group to be in?? Who else besides me just KNEW it was the other group?? :confused:

    Why were Paris and Chris in the bottom 3, but Pickler wasn't??? I'm confused.

    Last night really surprised me. Chris in the bottom three??? What's up with that.

    I must say that I'm still betting on Katherine taking the whole thing. Here performance the other night was fantastic.

    His rocker base was turned off by him forgetting the eye makeup and singing a straight cover of a song....

    I'm sure he will stop this experiment quick and go back to appeasing his base.

    Why are you confused? It has a lot to do about popularity. Pickler has a great personality and I don't think people want to see her go. Chris in the bottom three.. Give me break.

    I can understand Paris, here song was not a popular song and I would not have expected it to connect with the audience. Chris Sang a very well known song and I personally thought he made it is own. Chris and Kathern should be in the finals hands down at this point.

    On another note, I friend of mine sent me a link to Brian May's Blog where Brian basically says that the exchange between him and Ace was taken out of context and that it was not about Ace butchering is music.

    Idol has a problem and I am not sure how they can address it. When people like Chicken Little, Red, etc make it into the top ten you have wonder. Some people that were obviously, in my opinion, better than buck left before bucky.

    Popularity has a lot to do with it and each week votes shift as people get voted off. Where is the Ace votes going to do now?

    Let me ask a question.. What people would you buy an album from?

    Chris
    Kathern
    Paris
    Tyler
    Elliot
    Kelly

    I could only see possible buying an album from Kathern and maybe Chris depending on how Rock he went. I would not from any of the other constestents especially Tyler. Vocal I don't get it...

    Next week is love songs. Chris showed that he can sing the slow song, however he landed him into the bottom 3. Chris and Kathern have both been in the bottom three and you have Kelly and Tyler who have not (Go Figure). Next week works for Kathern and Kelly. Might also be good for Paris, but she is horriable at making good song choices and she really needs to hit it out of the park if she wants to continue.

    What scarys me is that Kelly and Tyler I could see having the most popularity and a finaly with them two in it would not be what I would consider the best and I don't consider either of them the next american idol. However, Kelly has been improving each week (Minus last weeks butcher) and she is the dark horse in my book.

    Did Taylor setup Ryan with the turn-around, faking him with his choice, or did the "I'm sorry..." from Ryan cue him in?

    Either way, I am glad that Ace is out. Sorry Laverne :D

    Chris, Katherine, and Taylor should be the final three. Anything else will be a disappointment.
