    I've heard people sing a duet by themselves and it worked, but the difference between them and Jacob was that they actually did a decent job.

    INDEED. I've been a fan of Sheryl's music for years, but she took me by complete surprise...

    There's an advantage and disadvantage to picking a song many people haven't heard. In general, the riskiness of picking one is too much, but on a night where you have two songs, the POTENTIAL risk can be worth it... and I thought she did great.

    On the other hand, Jacob and Scotty both had the disadvantage of having people being able to compare their first songs to the originals, and hear how bad they were, while Haley was able to make the song her own.

    Not much different from my order... All things considered...

    Haley
    James
    Lauren
    ........ A BIG, BIG GAP ........
    Scotty
    ........ A MEDIUM GAP ........
    Jacob

    They are already prepping the town here for James, as they have always done for the final three in previous Idol seasons.

    Jacob finally got the hook tonight. His singing and demeanor always gave me the willlies - like finger nails on a black board.

    Haley is soooo hawt!!!

    Sheryl Crow looked and sang great!

    What is under Jimmy Iovine's hat???

    I guess enough was enough for Jacob....surprised he lasted this long.

    Actually....Scott was the next weakest this past week...but he seems to have a loyal voter following. Haley is ramping up her "performing", but her singing is still not that great.

    The make-it-or-break-it week is coming up.

    Yeah - audio on AI has, once again, been very poor this year. They really need some good audio engineers.

    It was surely Jacob's turn to go. Now I've got no strong feelings on the rest of the group, Scotty could develop into a really good Country singer, and James can be James (kind of like Adam but without the flash and controversy and attitude.).

    LEARN HOW TO STAY IN TUNE.

    Sorry but why is no one else bothered by this? I know, Autotune can fix this stuff but look at Sheryl Crow in that one package. She just sings, and she sounds great. I'm not even a fan of hers but she's so far above this crowd, just in basic skills.

    And did they say Lauren was 15? Good Golly Miss Molly. That's too young.

    Do they need to remind us each week that "This is the most important week so far"?

    Well I was a little surprised to have Lauren in the bottom 2. I actually thought James should of been there. My rankings were:

    Haley
    Scotty
    Lauren
    James
    Jacob

    I called the bottom but missed the bottom two.

    I agree. Sheryl's voice is pure silk. I remember seeing her when she was a backup singer for Mr. Don Henley. My binoculars came in real handy that night! :D

    Was heart broken to see Lauren Alaina in bottom two, through it would be Jacob and Haley with Jacob going home.:(

    No way was Haley going to be in the bottom this week. Lauren need her moment next week or she will go home. The other three found there niche (or neesh as Randy and Steven say).

    You have to remember though, they really aren't doing the "bottom 3" or "bottom 2" anymore. Last week they made it seem like Scotty was next to last, when in fact he wasn't because the results are done in random order. Lauren was paired with Jacob because it made it somewhat suspenseful (and I'm pretty sure they knew Lauren would break down like she did). It creates a buzz to keep people watching and possibly entice some others to watch who otherwise wouldn't.

    The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk announced plans today for James Durbin's visit. I'm glad it's a Saturday and I won't be at work to deal with the mayhem around town!

    Lauren and James are going home next, I hope. Haley has come on a lot stronger than what the judges have given her credit for. Lauren is hampered by her age and very unspectacular in the fact she has not grown at all. James what can I say, I would of voted him off along time ago. Scotty wins it all because of his country fan following unless Haley can pull it off in the final week.
