Is anyone else really irritated by how tonight's show ended? That was just plain wrong to do to the youngest contestant on the show. I think it was cruel.

I agree, and I'm ticked that I stayed up past my bed time for that.

Oh, good. I'm glad that I'm not the only ones that doesn't like what they did last night!! That was just not right!!

AFA the rest of the show, I really enjoyed the singing. I was sobbing through a lot of the tape of the kids and people in Africa. So sad!! My kids were really affected by the 12 year old boy and his sister who are orphans and on their own. Carleigh said "I couldn't do that, Mommy. I can't cook my own bread and food."

Noone went home last night ~ but Ryan had everyone stand and declared them safe one by one until it was only Chris and Jordin left. Then he said that because it was a charity night noone was going home. Next week the bottom 2 will go home though.

I had a feeling that no one was going to go home, when he kept saying tonights results are going to shock you, then when he just had then stand one by one, i was like nope no one is going to go home tonight. I actually even think the contestants knew this to.

It will be sad to see 2 go home next week.

I cried for most of the show to, it is so sad to see all of those poor people and all those people affected by AIds.

Okay, so I didn't watch much of the show, but the first thing I thought of when Ryan said it was the most shocking results ever was that Jordan must be going home. That would have been the most shocking result I could think of and you're saying they made her go last???!!! How awful!!!! That was most certainly planned...I think "whomever" knew that many would probably assume that was what they meant. That totally sucks! I'm glad I didn't watch then, lol. :lol:

I was more upset by the living conditions. I know people are sick and dying and that is very sad, but to be sick and dying in such filth seems even more an insult to the dignity of the person. The endless trash those people are surrounded by was horrible. The huts the little children lived in. I expressed to my children the environment of the children. Where are the playgrounds, the parks, the bikes and colorful toys. For them, they could understand that more than the images of the sick and dying. Two of my children are still too young to appreciate human suffering on the scale presented by the images. My older child- who as an American Teenager has not witnessed such suffering in his life- still can't relate as an adult can, but was more empathetic than the two younger children. We have gone to orphanages in Mexico and brought along gifts to ease suffering... that is what we are capable of as non medical people. So, we have seen the suffering poverty alone brings. It is the ability to comprehend sickness that is difficult. But I know when I am simply ill, I like the comforts of a soft bed, cleanliness, healthy food and drink. That alone, eases some of the suffering. Knowing my children would be cared for were something to happen to me is another source of comfort. I can't imagine being one of those women.

WOW! What a night! I think Jordin was actually my least favorite tonight. I generally love her, but she was way out of her element tonight. Not a good song choice either. Blake was amazing, very daring. Chris was awesome and I generally can't stand him. I thought that was by far his best performance thus far. I really enjoyed Melinda also. LaKisha kind of bored me. It was good, but not great. It's hard to say who may be going home this week. I'm thinking maybe it will be Phil and LaKisha??? I'm just really hoping that Jordin stays despite her performance tonight.

Last night was great, I liked phil and blake and lakisha. Jordin was terrible and her hair was out of control lol. I didnt like melinda performance. Her goign from a little shy girl to being tina turner sexy just doesnt do it for me.

I am scared to see who will go home tonight. Im thinking chris and lakisha tho

Yep, I really liked Phil's performance and most everyone else did very well too. I was worried about Blake's performance at first but liked it and was glad it was well received.

I also thought Jordin didn't do well, it was not easy to watch, lol. I'm one of the few that DID love her hair though, lol, I thought she looked very cute. :P

I have to say i was worried about Blake too, but he rocked. I think it was also a good move for him to go back to the beat box, it will remind his fans what is so unique about him. Jordin was hard to watch, I hope it doesn't send her home. I'd love to see Chris or Lakisha go.

Yeah, it would be a real shame if Jordin got sent home after one bad performance. She's so talented. I really enjoy her most weeks. I'm also really glad that Blake went back to his roots. He has a nice voice and all, but without that little added something (beat boxing) he just doesn't stand out very much. What was with the dyed hair this week??? He looks way better as a patchy blonde. Oh, and I kind of liked Jordin's hair. I thought it was cute.

It was SOOOO nice to be able to enjoy the whole show without Sanjaya there to bring me down. :)

I saw the tail end and saw Chris leaving. I have to say I did like his last song. I can kick myself for working Tuesday night, just kick myself. I am assuming the other person who left was Phil.

Yeah, it was Phil. Now it's Blake left with a bunch of females. :) This coming week should be interesting. Oh, and Bon Jovi did perform last night, but it was one of their new songs. Ugh... We fast forwarded through it.

I was sad to see phil and chris go home even tho i figured it would be at least one of them lol, but I bet they will get record deals anyway, if sanjaya did, anyone on that show can lol.

I liked bon jovi's song, i was laughing at the part that he said we were looking at old photgraphs and boy did we have alot of hair back then, I was like yes you sure did, I remember having those long haired days all over my walls as a teenager. I would love to go see him in concert again.

I didn't watch last night...so it was Phil and Chris that got sent home. Wow. It shouldn't be surprising I guess, but it is somehow. :lol:

I watched both shows last night. I thought it was one of the better nights, except for Jordin. I love Bon Jovi! I was kind of sad about Phil and Chris because I really liked their songs, for once. :o

I really did not like what Blake did with his song. I thought it was terrible, but am glad that the voters must not have agreed with me! I really like his individuality, but not with that song. The more I watch him, the more he does remind me of Elmer Fudd. Wasn't someone here saying that? I'm also glad that Jordin didn't get the boot just for one bad performance.

I do not like Blake's hair. It looks better blonde.

I cannot wait to go see Bon Jovi, I saw him 3-4 years ago, but it was amazing. I like all of his music, he is one artist that I still enjoy the newer songs.

I like Aerosmith, but their newer stuff is not my favorite.

    • It sounds like you're doing great. That's amazing that your anxiety has decreased like that. You're obviously doing something really good for your health. With the other things I'm sure they will get better in time. After I gave up gluten I had a bad year but overall it got better. Things like anxiety and insomnia massively improved over time with being gluten free. However, going Paleo (which you are on your way to with the no dairy too) really helped my anxiety, as did running and self-taught acupressure. In particular I found processed gluten free foods were awful for my mood. I know you have to find your own way but I really want to encourage you to see how you feel without that if you haven't already. I also can't afford therapy but when I did have it, that helped too but just being well, gives you the chance to sort your own thoughts and feelings out even without a therapist. Good luck
    • Thank you so much guys. Reading that last response and those from forum members who seemed to be mind-bogglingly sensitive to gluten at times helps me feel like less of a freak  Perhaps worse than the symptoms themselves was my fear that I'm the only person on earth who has gone through this and that if it continues, I will end up with all of my friends and family washing their hands of me because it would look to them like I'm the only one with this and so I must be crazy. It's really good to hear that the sensitivity can go down too. I've been holding onto this idea through the tough times, reminding myself that I also had really bad hayfever for a few years, and asthma at a different time and they both got better.  It has been a whole month since I had a bad reaction to gluten. It has also been two weeks since I even had a small reaction and I'm feeling SO much better. I'm still going to take every precaution I can but this feels worlds away from how it was. At my most risk averse, I had a day on holiday where I only ate bananas and avocados because I could eat them without them having been touched by human hands, even my own! (This was straight after getting sicker and sicker and hunting down what it was that made me ill. I found the refill bottles of soap in the house where I was staying and read that they had wheat in them - not an airborne reaction I imagine but when I washed my hands to prepare food it was probably contaminating my food. Plus because I didn't speak the language, I couldn't be sure the new soap I bought was gluten free.) Now, I am still avoiding environments with lots of gluten and staying clear of all grains, with the exception of rice which I reintroduced using the food challenge method as directed by my dietician (since I understand that rice is, according to Dr Fasano, the lowest risk of gluten contamination of all the grains) and I am building my weight back up. My husband has been able to see also that the last time he cooked gluten in the house was the last time I got ill. So it is reassuring for him to see that the sacrifice he is making is making such a difference to me. I also took the advice about new cooking utensils - thanks! I have my fingers crossed for me. I want this better health to continue but right now I'm happy to know that there is a break in the clouds and to know that I can feel like me again. Good luck to everyone, sensitive or not, who gets into a bad place with managing their reactions. Hang on in there!        
    • I'm not sure I just had the endoscopy, and I've had a  songram. 
    • Thanks and I'm seeing a doctor in three months may have to make it sooner.    Thanks for all the replies.
    • Hey guys so question. I still am going through some of the motions to finally be diagnosed. I has a really bad case of acid reflux a few days ago and now i feel soo sick. Im still eating gluten because i got a negative biaopsy test but ive been told thag i more than likely still have it because its really hard to detect. Well i drank beer last night and had a poutine today stupid i know and now i feel soooo sick. And only felt really sick after the poutine. Now my question is can your symptoms get worse all of a sudden??  I have many other symptoms thaat read celiac deisease for most of my life. But since all doctors told me you have anxiety ibs and fibro at 28 years old. I just baiscally gave up and figured this was going to be my life feeling like crap for the rest of my life. Any thoughts??? Thanks guys. Sorry for the novel lol
