Who did you like tonite? Who will be in the bottom 3 this week?
I do want to add though that I think there could be a possibility that Hollie will stay simply as a side effect of the judges comments.Alan Gordon said:BOTTOM THREE?: Hollie, Skylar, and ??????????
Pimping of Joshua aside... I think that's pretty obvious.Henry said:I think they may be looking for a female champ this season. Four back-to-back male champs is a pretty good indicator that the judges/producers may be eyeing a female to win it. If that is in any way conceivable, then I think Jessica is in for a good run. We will know once the judges start picking on the male singers in an effort to manipulate the vote in the girls' favor, akin to what they did for Scotty last year.
Do you remember last year's winner?! :eek2:Henry said:I don't think Phillip will make the top three. IMHO he's too independent and set in his ways.
Next week is the last week it can be used, so it's happening either this week or next.Henry said:What we need to look for is the SAVE. Once it gets used, all hell (Pia Moments) will break loose.
They certainly aren't bold anyway...Henry said:And those are not bold predictions ... just guesses.
You should see me whenever I go to vote... trying to contort my body in awkward positions so as to keep the persons behind me from seeing anything (most likely in vain). If this was a controversial issue, I'd like it private as well, but this is American Idol and...Doug Brott said:I like it when not public ...
Seems like you and I pretty much watched the same show last night, unlike Mr. Tyler. Poor Hollie. I'll be very interested to hear Jimmy's review tonite.Alan Gordon said:HOLLIE: Uh............................................................................................................................................... I thought this was one of her strongest performances. I thought the judges were incredibly harsh on her.
FAVORITES OF THE NIGHT?: Colton & Elise
FAVORITE DUET OF THE NIGHT?: Phillip & Elise
BOTTOM THREE?: Hollie, Skylar, and ??????????
I thought they all did good tonight, and I will be sad to see anybody leave tomorrow.
I didn't watch the show live. I finished it at about 10:10, and my Uncle came over for an after-show discussion.Steve said:It never occurred to me to. Sorry about that! I wanted to vote before I went to bed and didn't see a poll, so I took a shot at it.
Pretty much everything I read stated they thought the judges were too harsh on Hollie. Heck, even Nigel Lythgoe stated that he didn't think the judges were fair to her:Steve said:Seems like you and I pretty much watched the same show last night, unlike Mr. Tyler. Poor Hollie.

I don't know if he'd seen any of the voting, or was making a prediction, but it may have backfired on the judges.dizzyfeet said:I didn't think the judges were fair on Hollie but it's all subjective. I more than not usually agree with them. Interesting voting tonight!!
I'm not sure anybody is safe tonight... :eek2:Steve said:I think this will be a night when everyone gasps at who's in the bottom 3. Based on their comments the past couple of weeks, I don't see them using the save for Hollie. I can see them using it for Elise, if it breaks that way. You never know how the voting's gonna go.
I like Elise and Phillip too much... otherwise, I'd agree with you...Steve said:I'd like to hear a duet with Elise and Colton next week. Phillip and Skylar as well.
There are three guys left in this competition. Vocally, Joshua is far superior to the both of them, but the other three have the voting edge. Yeah, Randy was pimping him last night, but I think it was completely understandable.hdtvfan0001 said:There were 3 times during the show where it was obvious Randy has an agenda...in terms of bringing Joshua to the top. While Joshua did a very good job last night...he was no more than 3rd in line. When Randy specifically pointed out how great Joshua was above the 2 girls in the trio song...it really stood out as to what he's thinking.
WHAT THE FRAK?!?! :eek2:hdtvfan0001 said:Joshua is # 2 in performance skills but # 4 in terms of singing skills...how much screaming of high notes can a person's ears take...?
I think Colton was the surprise of the night. He's usually at the bottom of my list week after week, so to see him at the top is always surprising.hdtvfan0001 said:Elise was perhaps the surprise of the night, followed by Hollie - both raised their game. I don't think either of them will win...but it was nice to see them do considerably better.
:eek2:hdtvfan0001 said:Not sure about Colton. He needs another banner performance to hold onto the top spot...it didn't come last night. Skylar is the dark horse...hanging near the top the past few weeks, with an occasional top spot.
I thought Colton and Elise stood out a little bit, but otherwise, I don't disagree...hdtvfan0001 said:If anything...I think last night was probably the most "even" for performances by all of them in some time...no one person glaringly stood out above the rest. The gradebook would read alot of B's, B+'s, and a couple of A-'s...
Guess we'll just have to disagree on that...but Randy might agree with you...Alan Gordon said:There are three guys left in this competition.

Perhaps on his solo...yes...but I was referencing the trio specifically...and Joshua did NOT outsing the 2 gals on that gig...not even close. Randy seems on a personal mission with Joshua just like JLO was with her "pet" singer kicked off last week.I stated that Joshua out sang both girls last nights prior to Randy doing so. Last week, he and Jessica were on par with each other... last night, he was superior to them both. I don't believe it was the right song choice...
Colton doesn't end up in the bottom though...so it would seems others don't share that view.I think Colton was the surprise of the night. He's usually at the bottom of my list week after week, so to see him at the top is always surprising.
I disagree about the trio, but the other thought crossed my mind last night...Doug Brott said:I don't get the Judge's hate for Hollie .. She clearly doesn't have an advocate up there like most of them do. In her trio with Jessica and Joshua, I felt very strongly that all three of them did great and not one of them sang above the other. To bad Hollie couldn't use the unrated version of 'Perfect.' Then she could have told the Judges exactly where to go. :lol:
Agree on Colton and Elise, but I strongly disagree on Jessica. I've heard multiple people say they didn't care for her song choice last night. They thought it was kind of boring. Perhaps if she had chose another Jazmine Sullivan song ("Bust Your Windows")...Doug Brott said:I thought Colton won the night followed by Elise. I thought Jessica sang lights out, she was great, BTW, but I can't help but think that she peaked last night. I don't see her upping her game for the remainder of the season (her career on the other hand is an entirely different story .. She'll do just fine.)
I can connect with Hollie, but yeah, she is not comfortable on stage, and that's her Achilles' Heel. I thought she did a much better job at relaxing last night, but she needs more experience.Holydoc said:IMHO I think they all did a great job last night. If I had to choose the top two it would be Elise and Colton. I really wish Elise had a better following because she can definitely perform.
For the bottom three (since they always pick a bottom three), I would have to say Hollie (I just cannot connect to her. I think she sings well but she just wears me out when she performs since I can tell she is counting), Jessica (song choice was not great for me), and ...umm... probably Joshua (his singing was fine but it would have been like I was voting for the 1970's instead of 2010).
Will be interesting tonight.
Pretty much everyone I know (offline) agrees with me, so it's not just Randy.hdtvfan0001 said:Guess we'll just have to disagree on that...but Randy might agree with you...
Actually, I thought both Jessica and Hollie were better on their solos than Joshua during his, but during the trio, Hollie and Jessica were like back-up singers... and I don't feel they needed to be. Jessica was going toe to toe with Joshua last week, so we know she can do it, and I think Hollie is more than capable, so I don't know what happened last night, but I'm blaming song choice.hdtvfan0001 said:Perhaps on his solo...yes...but I was referencing the trio specifically...and Joshua did NOT outsing the 2 gals on that gig...not even close. Randy seems on a personal mission with Joshua just like JLO was with her "pet" singer kicked off last week.
Are you talking about the voting here or on AI?!hdtvfan0001 said:Colton doesn't end up in the bottom though...so it would seems others don't share that view.
I certainly don't agree with them many weeks, and I thought they were WAY off with Hollie last night.hdtvfan0001 said:Bit it is neat to see different perspectives from various viewers each week of course. I enjoy your feedback as just much as anyone else's...I am wondering about the judge's judgment some weeks though.
I guess I get out more... and hear the opposite view on Joshua. :lol:Alan Gordon said:Pretty much everyone I know (offline) agrees with me, so it's not just Randy.
AI - Colton has been at or near the top for many weeks now.Are you talking about the voting here or on AI?!
