It was a horrible night performance wise. I think LaToya was the best. At least she got into the latin beat and moved around...more of the white folks did. John and Jasmine were extremely of key...I couldn't believe the judges thought Jasmine sounded good. I think they will think differently after they see it at home.
Aside from Latoya I would say Fantasia, George and Diana were about equal. I listen through my home theater system, and it sure makes a difference.
Who I'd like to see on the seal: John and Jasmine. For the third, anybody else but LaToya would do for me.
I always thought Fantasia was the best singer/performer, but not tonight! LaToya outshone everybody, but Diana was surprisingly good. George just seems to have lost his touch, and as for John, would someone tell me WHY he is still in this competition?

I don't think it's the red hair...I think that he's a sweet kid. He's amazingly mature for his age and has taken everything thrown at him withput breaking down.
John would make a good crooner, like Harry Connick Jr. But, I really don't think anybody is doing him a favor by voting him through week after week, just cause they think he's cute. The popstar business will eat someone like him alive and spit him back out. And there won't be a thing he could do about it because he will be contractually obligated. Does anybody really think that if he did win AI that his record will sell? I don't think so...and it would be sad for a nice kid like him to be saddled with that kind of failure.
Yes, Clay had redhair...but he has talent also...widespread talent that appeals to many and he is an amazing performer. John needs to lie low and then in several years make an album of standards.
You do have a point but the red hair does add to his cuteness. I know I tried to vote for him but I could not get through EVERY time I called it was busy. I agree with Simon I think he will make it to the next round but after that I am not so sure.

I don't know why John is there either. He is nice but does not have the talent. If we had to vote by niceness we would vote Simon offf right? I actually like Simon because he is honest and tells it the way it is. Last night was bad again. I hope the voting will be okay tonight or I cancell the show for good.

I think John is still in because of teenage girls. He usually is singing ballads and love songs and they are probably all swooning over him. I like Jasmine, but thought she was not good last night - like Randy said - very pitchy. I can't stand Fantasia - sounds too much like Macy Gray - annoying. Latoya is very good, and I thought Diana's performance last night was good.
LATOYA is the best singer left in this competition. It boggles my mind how John is still around. Fantasia's voice works my last nerve! Diana showed she is still a contender and George is hanging in there by a thread! Jasmine is a pretty young thing!
on another side note, are any of you into country music and into watching "Nashville Star"? now that's a talent show! The contestants not only have to be able to sing, but the finalist are all musicians who play an instrument and they also have to be able to write and perform an "original composition". The judges are the top country radio DJ in Nashville, a recording company executive in charge of new talent and a country recording artist. My pick to win is George- fondly knows as the "Marlboro Man" - he wears that label very well.
So John got the boot last night. No big surprise. However, I just heard that next week is going to be big band songs. He would have done exceptional on that show as it is definitely his forte. Do you think AI planned it that way?
