Brandon.

that was disappointing, sanjaya really needs to go home, i think so many forget its a singing competition not a show to vote for who we think is cute pr pretty. Id rather have an guy that forgot a few words then a kid who does not have a good voice at all.

Whew... I'm glad it wasn't somebody good that was voted off. I was worried maybe Haley went last night. I can't believe my stupid DVR didn't record it.

The best way to watch Idol these days is to record it and then fast forward through most of it LOL. All the guys (except maybe Blake) should go home.

I wish I could do that, but since my husband had to be in bed by 7:00pm he records his favorite show. I just play a game on the computer while its on. If I had to just sit and watch the show, I'd quit. This is the worst year.

This is actually my first year watching, everyone in my office but me had been watching it and they loved it. I thought I would see what the hype was about....guess I picked the wrong year. I am glad Phil got to sit back down! He does have talent. He just isn't a Diana Ross singer, not many people can pull her off. You have to have a great voice and a lot of talent to do that.

Yeah, Amanda, this is definitely the worst year in Idol history. Although, the first year was pretty weak too. I think once we get to the top 5 things will be up to par a bit more. Imagine a stage full of Blakes, Ginas, LaKishas, and Melindas. That's what the other years have been like. There's usually one bad one and then the rest are somewhere between great and amazing. This year's pretty interesting though since there are so many bad ones. I hope Blake continues to do well. It would really be a shame if he got voted off. I find myself watching the show eagerly until his performance and then I'm usually bored after that. Though, I have to admit, Melinda is absolutely amazing.

Really, what is so special about Melinda? She's not that great at all. Her voice is not original in the least. Does anyone listen to the sound of a voice these days? So she can sing. Her voice is not unique. And I hate the cutesy girl act with the big eyes looking shocked. My children are mocking her dumb look during every show. We like Blake and the Hurley guy- the large guy with curly hair. We call him Hurley from Lost. They're the only two who seem to have an interest in talent over what God gave them. The rest are just decent singers.

I think it's the fact that she actually has stage presence. Most of them this year don't seem to have that quality.

I love American Idol...and I'm from Canada. We have Canadian Idol but it kinda sucks. I have to agree with the person who said they can't stand Melinda's cutsy big eyed astonished look. It bugs me too. I'm very surprised that Brandon got voted off last night...it should have been Sanjaya. It's kinda early to say but I think I might be rooting for Jordan Sparks.

John and I are not big Melinda fans, I think it is partially because she gets too much credit sometimes. I think that Lakisha has just as much talent but they seem to fall over Melinda, like when Paula was crying the oter night after she sang...I didn't get that.

That is just our opinions though.

Oh, I have to disagree with the "stage Presence" comment. Being cutesy and shocked and scrunching up your already barely there neck at every compliment is not the presence of a star. I prefer confidence. I'm not saying she can't sing, but her personality bugs me to no end. I like Blake and Chris messing around with their song choices and attempting to be artists... which is what they should be doing. Not simply singing the same old song. That's bold, even when it doesn't quite work.

Hum..well I don't feel that strongly about it one way or the other LOL, but I meant she has a nice presence when she performs. I do like the fact that she's quiet and humble when she's not singing...but can get out there and have such a powerful presence when she sings.

Then again I think Phil is pretty freaky but a lot of people like him, so who knows...

Ya know... The more I see Phil, the more I think he's kind of freaky. I liked him in the beginning because he looked so cute holding his newborn baby girl, but... there's just something off about him.

oh, nonononono. I don't think Melinda is humble at all. About as humble as Kelley Pickler was naive and innocent! It's all an act. And a poorly executed act at that. SO over the top with the big surprised eyes and the ... it just makes me sick to think of her. Nevermind. I'm not a fan and never will be. You have to be duped into believing she's for real to like her.

Phil does have a different look....I did like his first few songs though, lately he has not been making me jump for joy though. Obviously, looking at Thursday he was down the bottom on votes.

Who were the bottom three last week? I didn't realize they were doing that already. I didn't think they did that til the top 10.

This week I think Blake and Melinda were amazing. Haley did really well too, that was a pleasant change. Melinda sang one of my all time favorite songs ever and she nailed it. She had me in tears. Her rendition was so different from any that I've heard before. It just blew me away. Blake, well, do I even need to comment? He's always amazing. And Sanjaya... What got into him?!?!?! He actually didn't horribly suck tonight!

What was with that little girl, Ashley, that was crying all night?

I know the little girl crying really bugged me :)

Blake out of this world!!! Melinda was good. Haley, what a change....and Sanjaya, wow it was like a different person all together. Gina really rocked out at Paint it Black.

Now, I did not like Lakisha this week...

John liked Chris Richardson too.

Last week it was Sanjaya, Phil Stacey, and Brandon were the bottom.

Who do you think's gonna go? Don thinks Gina will go, we didn't think she was very good tonight. I think she has a big enough fan base to keep her in since she's the only rocker. I think Phil might go. That is, unless America gets with the program and gets rid of Sanjaya. It was really weird though hearing him do so much better. It was like he totally came out of his shell.

I am thinking Phil or Stephanie. She did not do good either.

Off topic..John and I are looking at a house in Cornwall!

Cornwall is right up the road from us! How far off 322 is the house?

Remember the old clips of the beatles appearing on the Ed Sullivan show and girls in the audience where crying and passing out? I think thats why they had the cameras on that little girl crying. I thought it was so cute. She was just overwhelmed by it all.

I thought Lakisha totally blew it last night. I didn't like her last week either but it was tolerable. I don't think she going to be down to the last 3. Melinda is better and one will edge out the other when it comes down to the end.

I wish Phil would wear hats and he would get edgier. He's got the voice but he's losing the confidence. I'm afraid he'll be at the bottom this week along with Sanjaya and Stehanie. :blink: I don't like her anyway. It's like she trying to be Beyonca to me.

I loved Jordin and Blake last night the best. I thought last night was alot of fun. I love the 60's for music. I wish someone would of picked one of Petula Clark's songs. She's the one who sings Downtown. Isn't she the one who sings "The son of a Preacher Man"???? Anyway can't wait to see the results.
