Oh man, I missed the guys last night and I forgot the votes were in tonight.
Who got voted off?

Ayla (sp) and Kinnik were the girls voted off
and the boys were Gedeon and that boy that resembled one of the Brady Bunch Boys, his name escapes me.

Funny you should mention Brady Bunch, I thought so too! He looked just like Christopher Knight (Peter Brady). I think his name was David, wasn't it?
Was Gideon the black guy with the longish hair?
For the past 2 weeks, I have only caught the girls' night, and missed the boys, but am familiar with them from the previews.

rollerdonna,
His name is Will. Last night, we said goodbye to Kinnik, Will, Ayla, and Gedeon. Here is a link to American Idol for more info and pictures, the 12 finalists. http://www.idolonfox.com/

At first, I was all about Kellie Pickler, then I thought Chris had it in the bag. I have a new favorite..... Taylor Hicks!! He is just amazing, and he is out there having fun, and feeling the music. I love him, I'd be first in line to buy his cd!

We too were surprised that Gideon was booted, (thought sure it would be Kevin), but Ayla was really bad last week. Just a really poor choice of music. Like you say, the favorites are still there. It's gettin' really interesting now!

Hi,
Is Taylor the grey haired guy? Chris is probably the best in my opinion of the guys but the guy I look forward to the most Hmmmm-can't remember his name but I like his voice. He is the one that Simon said has one of the best voices ever of Idol.
Don't bother me on Idol nights.

So what are you thoughts on yesterday? I am not a Stevie Wonder fan more like Stevie Nicks but I was suprized to see Ace and Lisa in the bottom 3 but Melissa was the worst of them.

I was really shocked to see Ace in the bottom three, and Kevin not. I like Kevin, but he isn't right for this compition. Lisa, I'm actually not to shocked about, she has never really "wow'ed" me. I'm a big dork, and go to the idols message board, and there really was no buzz about Lisa. The person that is most talked about is Taylor, this could be because he's my favorite, I just pay more attention to things about him.

If Kevin wasn't in the bottom 3, I would have chosen Melissa too. I never really got into her singing. America got it right, sort of, it should have been Kevin.

Ben, give him shaggy hair, and you got it!! They said on the show that he looks like "Chicken Little." They even did a side by side shot of it, and it was almost scary how much they look alike!

I was also surprised to see Ace in the bottom three. I don't care much for him but thought his looks would take him a little farther. And Kevin, too me, he isn't even likeable anymore. He comes off as smug.
Taylor IS awsome. I have to admit. Different and interesting.
That dark haired girl surprised me. I thought she did a good job. Not the one that got voted off but the other dark haired one(Katherine?) who hangs with the blond(Kelly?).
I think Elliot has the best voice and Mandesa. During the Ford commercial I think I could hear Elliot "wailing it". Those too are my favorites. I am interested to see what Katherine does next week though.

I like Katherine, Taylor, then Kellie. Kellie isn't as good as either of the other two, but when they allow her to sing "her music" ie: country, she is really very good. Overall, I have to go with Katherine.. She has the whole package, and I think will be commercially successful!

So what are your thoughts for today. I felt Kevin was better than Bucky but Lisa better get with it.

Thank goodness Chicken Little is gone. Bucky should be gone too.
Personally, I think Mandisa is the best singer, but Catherine is the best all-round performer. I also have a soft spot for Taylor.

I thought Lisa had trouble performing her song. Her breath was off or something.
I wasn't sad to see Kevin go. I bet many were though.

It was the correct choice. I liked Kevin, but he is not right for the compition. I like Chris, but he is kinda one dimentional. I save all my votes for Taylor Hicks! Yes, I am one of those weirdo's who vote..... but I only try about 5 calls

Hi Erin,
Just wondering what it ends up costing to vote. Do you know? That is what keeps me from voting because I don't know what my phone billl will look like.

It doesn't cost anything to vote by phone. It's an 866 number,,,free,,,,if you can get through. On the other hand if you vote by text message, then there is a charge,,,,,since I don't have the ability to "text message" I don't know what the charge is.

I'm not a fan of Katharine, not very much anyway. She did OK last week. But, I think Mandisa and even Paris is better.

Although I think she is better then Bucky, Elliott and Taylor. So once those 3 are gone it will probably be her who follows.

My finale prediction remains.... Chris and Mandisa. Chris wins.

Kim, I think you may be right on target. Course who knows. The talent sure does seem to be better this year. I do enjoy having something besides the usual tv fare to watch in the meantime.

Just found this thread, and it sounds like there are a lot of Taylor Hicks fans here. I just love how he feels the music! I will buy his CD when it comes out. I'm sure he'll get a contract from someone even if he doesn't win this competition.

I also really like Chris. He is really good! I think he sounds really professional already. I probably wouldn't buy his CD, but would buy/download some of his songs.

As for the girls, I like Katherine, but I think she needs a little 'punking' up or something. She is just too boring to look at. She's pretty as all get out, but I don't think she is 'fun' enough if you know what I mean....

This is Tuesday, so they sign tonight! Can't wait!

Hi,
I just took the aol poll and it showed Lisa at the bottom and Katherine at the top. I actually liked Kellie better last night because she reminds me of Dolly Parton. I love Dolly Partons voice and singing style. That rock and roll stuff from Chris-puke. Mabe in my younger days I would like it.

Was it just me, or did everyone sounds just plain awful last night?
The song choices were weird to say the least. The contestants seems to forget that this is American Idol (read POP star), and not a Country/Gospel/Head Banging Rock/Hip Hop/ singing contest.
I just thought it was a really bad night all around, and even the good ones sounded bad. Should be interesting to see the votes tonight!

I could not agree more rollerdonna! When some of the judges were praising them, I thought my ear drums had popped or something.... they were all pretty bad. I did however like Taylor's, not my favorite, but I thought he was the best of the night. Kathrine was horriable, I couldn't believe they thought she was the best of the night. My ears were ringing from all the off notes!

I voted for Taylor, I wouldn't mind seeing Lisa or Madisa go tonight. Bucky is right in there too, he's had too many off nights.

I guess we'll see tonight!
