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.

    • I've been seeing my dr for a few weeks now about my stomach issues. We've ruled out the gallbladder and h-pylori and today I had the celiac blood tests done. From the reading I've done the past two days, it seems to me that it's highly likely that I have it. I've had digestive issues for years, but they've gotten progressively worse over the past 6 months or so. Pain and nausea when eating, bloat, eternal constipation, dh rash, at it's worse, tight cramp-like pain in a fist under my sternum, radiating through my back and around my right side keeping me up at night. Also heartburn/reflux and trouble swallowing, etc. 

      Anyway, about 2 months ago, I needed a change. I didn't go to the dr immediately because it seemed pointless. (I've mentioned stomach ache when eating to drs before and been blown off.) So, I started the Whole30 elimination diet (takes out soy, grains, dairy, peanuts, and leaves you basically eating meat & veggies). Figured it would show me what I needed to take out of my diet and hopefully feel better. It worked- I felt great! And it seems that grains and gluten are my biggest offenders. But, now I've been off gluten prior to celiac testing. It's been 7 weeks. After 4 weeks I tested steal cut oats, that I later found out were probably glutened. And then nothing until yesterday. Yesterday I had 2 pieces of bread and a muffin and today I had two pieces of bread and then the blood test. Is this going to be enough to show up on the tests? My dr said that it would probably show up, since I had some yesterday and today and was currently having symptoms. But, google seems to say that I should be glutened for 2 wks straight before testing. Has anyone tested positive after just a little gluten? If it's negative should I insist on doing it again after weeks back on gluten? I feel awful, but do want clear answers. Obviously, gluten's not going to be a part of my life any more either way. 
    • So just to clarify  had not consumed any gluten for about 4 days before testing. I was assured by my allergist that it wouldn't affect the test. But what was alarming was that she retested my food allergies (my most recent reaction was two weeks ago) and every food allergy I have came back negative. I don't understand how that is possible. These food allergies developed when I was 20 and I am almost 24 now.
    • Thanks! You too! I have learned from this experience to take charge of my own health. It's nice at least that we can try the gluten-free treatment without a firm diagnosis or a doctor confirming the disease. I've also felt some of the gluten withdrawal symptoms, and my stomach pain ebbs and flows, but I'm determined to stick with the gluten-free diet to see what a difference it makes. Gemini, thank you! This was really validating and useful for me to hear. I've felt so confused through this process and just want some answers. If the biopsy results do come back negative, I'm going to follow your advice and do the gluten-free diet with repeat blood testing after a while. If they come back positive, well, then I'll have my answer. I'm supposed to get them back next week.
    • I have celiac and eosinaphalic esophagitis.  I was put on a steroid inhaler recently.  I use it like an inhaler but swallow the air instead of breathing it in.  You may want to look into EOE and it's relationship to celiac.  Just a thought. My swallowing and celiac seem to be related.
    • You have eat gluten every single day until after testing. And the celiac blood test is supposed to be done as well.
