    I hear ya. I like Brooke as an artist, and Jason - I just prefer the singer-songwriter genre. And that's why I think I'm STILL not totally connecting with her or anyone - she seems to be forcing things in order to please the judges and the audience, rather than just doing what she does and letting the chips fall where they may.

    Maybe it's the downside of the increased talent for this yeat - they are all overthinking things and the performances are coming up a little lacking. In general, the peformances are all good, and could be stellar but fall a notch or two short. We've yet to see a moment like "Rainbow" by McPhee (even tho she did it a second time, thus ruining it) - David Cook has probably come the closest, but he's just not kind of artist, nor does he need to be to win. His actual vocals are just getting better.

    I still don't know how the other Cook is still in - maybe it's her looks and a little luck, or she's the only country artist remaining - but talentwise,she doesn't compare.

    Anyway - should we maybe have a poll every week in place of or in addition to this one where we guess who's getting kicked off? I know we speculate on that, but it may be fun to see how the votes match up.

    Based on "DialIdol", Ramiele's probably a goner, but Carly, Brooke, Kristy and Jason are all in trouble as well. Given their margin for error, DialIdol results indicate any one of those 5 could go tonite. /steve

    David Cook was sent to hospital after the show last night. Heart problems or something.
    They say he's ok and will be on the show tonight. Hope he is ok.

    I don't really love the part where they take questions over the phone... but it doesn't really bother me... but... what does bother me... is that the question is already displayed up on the screen.... does that bother anyone else??

    What questions? There are phones? :confused:

    I just FFW to the guest performance and the "you go to the couch, you go to the stool" segments, skipping most of the fluff in between... :)

    Phoenix,...
    Don't worry about Ramiele. She will most likely get signed to a Filipino label as was Jasmine Trias.

    Well, as Meatloaf would say, "Two Out of Three Ain't Bad". You guys mostly nailed it and I was off a bit. My pick to go appears to have been 4th. from the bottom. :( I really didn't like anything about Jason's performance at all and thought he would be a goner.

    I think Ramiele was relying way too much on the backup singers and she was getting lost in all the voices.

    Amen to that. Thank God for DVRs. In fact, without DVR I wouldn't be watching AI at all with the amount of bloat in it nowadays. And did anyone want to hear Ramielle sing again, no disrespect to her (sweet girl, nice voice) ? Skipped over the three guest guys singing too. If I was a country music fan I'd probably know who they were, right? But i'm not and I just didn't care to hear them.

    Not that I dislike country. I really admire Dolly. But am I the only one who thought she was seriously undermiked in her performance? I just couldn't hear her very well and it ruined the song for me. Toward the very end of the song it seemed like they boosted her volume a little bit (not enough) and then boosted it a bit more for when she was talking to Ryan S. Just me?

    I was too tired last night to give my reviews. Such is the date of expiration on these topics (basically a day or two) that I won't go into the kind of detail I would've Tues nite, but in a nutshell... (next post)

    Arch -- Disappointing. Where did the magic go?

    Jason -- Again, not big enough for the big stage.

    D. Cook -- Well done. Not as well done as last week though imo.

    Ramielle -- It was time. She knew, the judges knew it, the audience knew, we al knew it. A nice run she made though. Nice girl.

    M. Johns -- Excellent! I really enjoyed his performance. Last week I thought he sounded straned in his upper range. Last night he was great in his upper range. And that super high note he hit in head voice was a complete bull's eye! I thought he hit a home run (now that baseball season is upon us).

    K. Cook -- I can't even remember what she sang. I liked her last week though in "Proud to be An American"

    Syesha -- kinda liked the first half of her song while she sat on the piano. Or did she sit on the piano the whole tme? Anyway, when she got to the BIG part of the song she so overmilked the drama that for me it caved in like a souffle gone bad. For me it was "Hey everyone, you thought Whitney was good, wait 'til you hear this!" Then belted out the high note as loudly and longly held as she could. The effect was to ruin the flow of the music and give the impression that she was desperate to impress, which usually has the opposite result. Did with me anyway.

    Brooke -- I thought it was just ok. She sings well but does she have that extra special quality to her music-making that sets her apart from so many others who sing well? Not for me, at least not yet.

    Carly -- Loved it! The way she opened in solo voice, so relaxed and free-flowing, set the table for a warm and vibrant performance. She's so expressive and has great musical instincts. I'm a Big Carly fan now!

    Agreed. That was really something special!

    p.s Thought Simon was a real ***** (can I say that here?) for how he put down Carly for how she looked Tues nite. So nasty and unnecessary.

    Actually, I liked KLC's song and she doesn't need wardrobe help. She's had what .. like nine lives now? Next week is going to get real, real interesting. if Syesha stumbles, she's a goner .. If Brooke annoys people even more then she may be a goner.

    Totally agree... Simon's comments were totally on and in terms of being nice.. It is a tough industry and if you can't take bad criticism you will not last long.... Simon by far is my favorite as a judge... He calls it as he sees it. Randy would be second and Paula is just in the weeds. To me she adds no value....

    Oh.. and you can get ride of Ryan S. too. ;)

    Now, if only he would call it as he HEARS it! Problem is, he isn't a musician. His musical judgment is crap. He knows what sells, that's all.
