Susan, are you coming by train or plane? I'm sure I can whisk up some special treats as well.

It is nice that there are so many of us who follow Idol. BTW, Gina ROCKED tonight!!! Wow!!! And Melinda!!! Double WOW!!! I'm so glad that the girls are holding this show together because if it weren't for them I'd be so totally bored right now.

Gina did rock!!!! She really kicked some butt singing Evanescence. I also thought Jordyn was pretty good. Antonella...well....still isnt happening.

Hey, whatever way, it doesn't matter, just keep the chicken fingers hot for me! ;) I'm not even watching Idol right now...I'm just in it for the gluten-free snacks you all provide! :P

One of the fun things about this thread is that we all have such different tastes and opinions on who's best. It seems like most of us like Blake the best, but can't agree on the girls. I must be showing my age, because I can appreciate Gina's talent, but just don't like that style of music. I LOVED Melinda, as usual. The girls are SO much better than the boys!

Oh totally, Melinda was insanely good. I just thought Gina was really edgy for the first time and that shows guts and it showed off her talent too. I think Melinda's probably the best singer in the competition, hands down, but I don't think she has the personality to win it. I love Blake, but my husband thinks he's going to get voted off early just like Daughtry did because he's just too good and doesn't need the show to succeed. I don't know. Blake's my call for winning it just because he's the only truly original one. He changes all of the songs' arrangements and he adds to them, plus he has a really nice, sandy, voice. If Blake can't take it, I hope Melinda or LaKisha can. Those poor girls need all the self-esteem they can muster up. Winning would do either of them some good.

I agree Guhlia!

I missed the guys so I'm looking forward to the show tonight to see the snippets.

None of my IRL friends are watching Idol so it's fun to come here to discuss it for me too!

You might have missed the guys show on Tuesday night, but you didn't miss much. The general agreement around here was that they were pretty boring. So don't worry too much about missing them. :) The girls were 100% better.

Last night was better but there were still a few boring performances, i so hope antolnella goes home tonight. My personal facites are jordan, lakisha, melinda and the one that rocked out, Another one i didnt like was haley,. simon was right when he said he didnt even know her name, i never paid attention before he said last night lol.

I just hope eveyone voted the right way, it seems they always vote off one that deserves to be there.

I agree, Gina and Melinda both rocked! I usually don't like watching the girls, they sing to many boring songs, but this year it's the guys who are boring. I do really like Blake and if gina stays edgy she'll be a favorite. I'm thinking Antonella and Haley should go home. And of Course Sanjaya. I'm not sure about the other guy, I'm sure it won't be Blake or the Chris'. It could be any of the others. I like Sundance, but his performances haven't quit been as good as he could be.

I totally loved all the performances last night except for Antonella and Haley. If those two aren't voted off then something really IS hinky. :lol: The girls are definitely better overall than the guys are this year.

I actually had liked all of Haley's previous performances. Last night she really fell. I did like Jordyn though. The girls seem to be powerhouses.This is a real fun thread. I am glad to see it took off. Boy Antonella seems to have gotten a high horse too...when Ryan talks to her after she performs her responses always annoy me.

Antonella doesn't have anywhere near the talent of the other girls. She's always off key and has a weak voice...I was really surprised when she made it to the final 24 in the first place. My guess is it's strictly about her looks. She shouldn't make it through tonight...I don't think Haley deserves to continue on either.

Antonella definitely has to go, but I think votefortheworst.com will be able to keep her on for a few more weeks. They were responsible for keeping Kevin Colveis on and John (the red head). Both of those boys made it pretty far considering their talent level. I hope that somehow Antonella gets voted off, I can't stand her, but I think we'll probably have to suffer through a few more performances from her unfortunately.

I think this week it will be Haley and maybe Sabrina (hopefully Antonella) for the girls and Sanjaya and Jared for the boys. I would say Sundance will go, but he's votefortheworst.com's pick, so I think he'll probably stay around for a while.

It'll be interesting to see how they handle the 'vote for the worst' thing (or if they handle it at all). It's obviously having a huge impact - Antonella? Please.

What a huge talent Melinda is ... Unbelievable.

BTW, did anybody see the last 5 seconds of the vote-off show last week? That was great - "Why did I decide to scat (sp?)? ... America don't care for jazz". We had to watch that 3 seconds like 5 times. Too funny!

If you haven't seen the show yet, don't read this...

Wow, so I was half right. I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO glad Antonella's gone. I really didn't think we'd be able to get rid of her so quickly, but I'm soooo glad we did. I'm sad to see Sundance go, but I think he may actually be able to make it on his own. He's a great singer, poor song choice sometimes, but a great singer and I really like his personality. I hope someone hooks him up with a deal. I'd buy his album. Sanjaya in the top 12??? What's that all about??? Ugh...

I know I was mad when Sanjaya made it, but I do not give Paula any credit for her comments when both Haley and Sanjaya went up there. I know when she spoke to Sabrina she said you belonged up there, it was when Haley went. I think they should have kept that to themselves. John did tell me there would be some surprises. Those two were it.

I actually think Sundance should have stayed over him....Sanjaya has a nice voice and all but you cannot hear him. He puts me to sleep.
