Although I am glad Sanjaya is gone, I have to ask, what will we talk about? :P And what is with Blake being in the bottom three and Chris in the safe group? That is wrong!

You know I didn't even watch last night. I was busy making my sisters Baby basket and wrapping the presents. John watched and he told me Sanjaya was crying...and I just reassured him that I question his sexuality. He is very feminine. I hope I am allowed to say that. So if I offended anyone, I am very sorry.

You are right, what we will have to talk about?

Did you guys see Simon and the whole Chris R thing last night, where they showed the recap and Simon verified himself. I did see that part. John is convinced that Simon was rolling his eyes at Chris.

Where is the "jumping with joy" smilie? WOO HOO!!!

I was very surprised to see Blake in the bottom 3 too! I didn't think he sang nearly as bad as Chris. And, the Simon thing, you can see in the replay tape from last night that he was talking to Paula and was asking her why he would sing/say something about nasal singing. I thought it was very apparant that he wasn't listening to what was going on stage.

Amanda ~ I really think the same thing about Sanjaya. He seems very feminine to me too.

I was kinda sad to see sanjaya go home, if he had gone home weeks ago i wouldnt have been sad, but he was growing on me lol. I cant beleive lakeisha and blake were int eh bottom 3, that just was wrong on so many accounts. I guess I will have to start voting to keep the ones i like safe lol.

I wish we could vote for the ones that we want out, that would be so much easier lol

I hope next week will be much more fun. This week has just been very busy for me, and my mind has been elsewhere, so I haven't focused on any of my TV shows I love. I didn't watch dancing with the stars either.

I have it rough at home, John liked Sanjaya....so we had some Idol battles. Silly.

Ha, I didn't watch last night either...well I did up until after they showed the tape of Simon talking to Paula from the night before, but from the sounds of it, YAY, lol. Sanjaya is gone. :P

In all previous years except for last the winner has appeared in the bottom 3 once. It's usually around when 5-6 people are left. I'm hoping this isn't just a fluke because I would LOVE for Blake to win. I definitely think he's awesome. Has Melinda been in the bottom 3 yet? I don't think she has been.

I was really glad that Sanjaya finally got cut. I was starting to get really worried that he would somehow win. That would have been such a joke because there are three other contestants that actually deserve that recording contract.

Did anyone else notice how Chris and Melinda were hanging all over each other for the entire show?

I have to admit I was glad to hear Simon tell Melinda to stop the surprised act.

I was worried Sanjaya was going to make it too. John was predicting it...I was praying it would not happen. I still cannot believe he was crying.

I think that was the my high point of the show, when he told her that. But I think she is going from the little miss innocent to the biggest attitude on the show lol

I think Blake or Jordan should win, Blake because he is unique, knows his stuff, can perform, and is likable. Jordan because she has the whole package, she is pretty, can sing, perform, and is a little sassy without being obnoxious. Although Melinda and Lakisha can sing they are missing something. Lakisha either projects no personality or a negative vibe. Melinda could have some appeal, but it would be limited to maybe adult contemporary music. She and Lakisha also have an older feel about them.

Just my opinion, chances are one of them will win.

Is it just me or does it look like lakeisha and melinda are losing some weight. they dont look at big as they did when this started, or is just that they are wearing more flattering clothes that make them look smaller.

Something does look different on them, and it is hard to put your finger on it.

I think Blake or Jordin as well, but present themselves well and have talent.

Lakisha stands very stiff and sometimes looks very annoyed. As for Melinda one of my coworkers summed it up, they just cannot stand to look at her, in my honest opinion I cannot see her as the next Idol because she does not have the look. Can you imagine the celiac disease cover? I look at those things. Maybe I am just shallow.

I was trying to figure out what you meant by "celiac disease cover"...took me a minute to translate it to C D...darned forum filter! LOL!

Of all the singers I see Melinda and Jordin being the most likely to win. I can see Melinda being on a C D cover. There are a few successful artists out ther who don't have the typical "look." It all depends on the photography and graphic design to bring the cover together. Jordin does have the "full package" though...and she is so young, she's really got potential for capturing the younger audience and has opportunity to really grow/mature.

I was glad to see Sanjaya go too. I hope Chris and Phil go the next two weeks.

Something I wanted to point out about Sanjaya. He's only a 17 year old kid who hasn't finished going through puberty yet. (Sure, Jordin is the same age, but girls mature faster than boys and she was already working as a plus-size model and had been on tour with a contemporary Christian singer before Idol.)

Anyway, he came across as very shy and humble in his audition. I think he's genuinely shy and really doesn't have the skills to deal with all the glitter of Hollywood. How would we have all reacted at age 17? I don't think he's overly feminine. He's just a kid doing what the stylists and vocal coaches are telling him to do. One thing is for sure - he wasn't ready for something like American Idol.

It makes you wonder if his sister isn't better than he is, although she may not have made it as far, without the support of vote for the worst and 13 year old girls.

I liked his sister, can't remember her name. She is very pretty too. I think it would be neat to see them team up together and sing because I bet they sound very nice together. I forget did they sing together in the audition at first and then they made them do it seperate too.

I can't remember if they sang together first or not. Her name is Shyamali. She's getting as many searches as Sanjaya these days.

The thing I remember about the auditions is that Shyamali went first and made it. Then Sanjaya went in. They asked him who was the better singer and he said, "my sister is". After he sang, the judges (I think Simon first) told him that he was actually better. When he came out, Ryan asked if the judges had compared their voices or told him who was better and he said, "I don't want to say" or something like that. It was obvious that he didn't want to hurt his sister's feelings.
