Donna I believe it will be interesting but it seemed like all the contestants were being themselves like the judges said "showing what kind of record they would make." Chris-rock and roll, Mandissa-Gospel, Kellie-country really that is what I look for. Last year Bo let everybody know he was a rocker, but we will know tonight what happened.

I agree, they made some really bad song choices for last nights show. Mandisa's song was way out there in the gospel area and Chris's song was way too rocky. If I'm not familliar with a song, I want them to sing it so I learn to like it. Neither of them made me like their songs. Kelly and Bucky were too country. (and I LIKE country music!) I didn't like the way Elliot did his song and I thougt that Katherine was way off too. I thought Taylor and Paris did the best last night. I really like all the contestents that are left, but I think Bucky, Ace and Lisa are the next to go. Time will tell....

We'll find out soon enough. I thought last night was the worst I've seen. I really wasn't crazy about any of them. I wish Paris would try not to be so adultish. She's a great singer without doing that. I had to agree with Simon's analysis of most of them.

Phyll & Rollerdonna.....

I usually agree with Simon. He may do it in a rough way, but he is usually "spot on."

He's not too bad on the eyes either....

It was sad to see Mandissa go yesterday I really liked her and wish she would have punched Simon in the mouth after he called her fat behind her back. Next week I believe will be Chris week.

ousoonerfanintexas....

I agree that Ace wasn't good lastnight, but from what I see on another site that I go to, it could be Elliot. I thought having a "Queen" week was a dumb idea anyway. Queen is one of those bands that makes it hard to redo a song. Freddie Mercury cannot be redone. Most of the kids that watch AI don't know who Queen is anyway.....


Erin

PS.... this seems to be a really great year!

Ace really needs to go, and a few others along with him. Elliot may not have the looks, but he does have a great voice. I think I still want Chris to win, but I like a few others too.

Eaky, I got a chuckle out of your comment about the young kids not knowing who Queen is. Guess I'm just a young kid. I did recognize a few of the songs though.

Well, if it is Elliot it is not from my lack of trying. At least I voted and for the first time. I think he won't make it much longer but I live and hope for another week. I always get surprised at these things. Mandisa was one of the best singers. Chris will make it even without the title.

Gee, I might even be tempted to go to an Idol concert. Do you think it is all teeny boppers?

I do like Chris as well, I just hate the fact that everything he sings, sounds the same. He's so one dimentional. I wish we could hear him sing something that didn't sound like hard rock. I still am a true Taylor Hicks fan. He can at least mix it up a bit.
I used to enjoy Paris as well, but she even gets on my nerves as well. I think it is so funny that in the begining of the show, she would speak in such a small Mickey Mouse voice. Now all of a sudden, she has a deeper sounding voice. I think it is all an act..... she also seems to come off kinda full of herself.
Kellie is getting to be a bit much too. I can deal with people with a low IQ, but WOW that girl needs some help.

Can you tell I am a bit addicted?

I kind of feel like it might be Ace tonight as well. Have to agree, what a dumb idea to try and have them sing Queen - an impossible task for anyone. I like Taylor the best, my husband likes Katherine.

I don't like the singers theme. First it was Stevie Wonder now Queen. This must all be to challenge them. I believe if Chris would of chosen a better song (in fact I can't remember what he sang) that would of probably at least got him in the top 3 he really messed up a good oportunity.

I think Taylor will be in the finals. IMHO, he is not necessarily the best singer, but the best entertainer of them all.

I have to agree that taking a legendary, unduplicatable band and having the contestants try to sing it is unacceptable. What will it be next week? Led Zepplin?

I also agree that Ace didn't do very well last night, I think Chris did a good job, but should have picked a well known song, and that Taylor, due to his charisma, will be in the finals.

I actually feel that America is getting it pretty close to the right order this year. I agree that Bucky should have gone, and he actually should have gone before Mandisa.

I was at the Idols website a little bit ago. You have no idea how much support Taylor Hicks has until you go to their message boards. It's like Tay-lor-ramma over there. Chris is also a favorite. I would almost (key word is almost....) bet my car on Taylor and Chris as the final two!

Now that would be a show down I would like to see-Taylor vs. Chris. I am glad that Elliott made it for the Rod Stewart week. After that maybe bye-bye.

Elliot has a great voice. I know he doesn't have the looks, but he's a nice kid, and I still enjoy hearing him sing.

Kellie isn't the best, but she has done good in the past. I don't think she is good enough to be around for much longer. I also like her personality.

I really think Kathryn has the whole package, and I'm still hoping that she and Chris will be the final 2.

If I had a choice, I would have Taylor, Chris, and Kathryn in the final 3.

Kellie should have gone, but Ace was a good second choice.

Hi ,
I am looking forward to see what they will do with Andrea Buccelli I was happy to see Elliott make it one more week. I thought he was going to be voted off. I was surprised to see Chris in the bottom two.
I think Elliott got lots of votes after they ran the story with his Mom and his sickness. Also, seeing Kellie's Grandpa and brother was sweet.

I agree that Elliot is a darn good singer, but sadly without the looks, I'm afraid that the voters will not keep him in the competition. I think Katherine is good, but I don't see much versitility in her. She always looks the same and sounds the same. Good, but the same.
I have had just about enough of Kellie Pickler. Why oh WHY does she have to be blonde!? She's cute but wow, could she really be that dim?
I also agree the Chris will be a star with or without the title of American Idol. I just LOVE Taylor. He has SO much personality and I love his blues bend on the songs. I would buy his CD! The last Idol I liked this well was Kelly Clarkson.
I'm looking forward to Andrea Boccelli. This will be Katherine's week. I think she'll do really well with this genre.
I vote every week. For my favorite as well as who I think didn't do so well but I want to stay. :-)

Well the judges hated Katharine last night but according to what I read on a board the public loved her. I believe she was great but we will see tonight according to the other board I read here is the vote, though if it is supposed to be a secret till the results I don't know how they could come up with this unless the idols are completely isolated from any outside insider.

Katherine - 31% of vote @ 8.5 million votes

Kellie - 21% of vote @ 5.7 million votes

Elliot - 15% of vote @4.1 million votes

Taylor - 13% of vote @ 3.6 million votes

Chris - 12% of vote @ 3.2 million votes

Paris - 8% of vote @ 2.1 million votes

I don't know how Kellie is still there!! She really isn't up to par with the rest that are left. I know there is a website that votes for the worst to stay, to make it more "entertaining," that is how some of the past contestants in past seasons have stayed past their time (Jon Stevens). If I had to choose, it would be Kathrine, Chris, and Taylor as the final 3.

Erin


ousoonerfanintexas..... still into "Deadliest Catch"? I'm getting excited for "opie" season... that is going to be fun to watch. I couldn't imagine fishing with all that ice and snow. I found it amazing last night when some of the deck hands brought home $47,000!!!!! I wish I could handle a job like that!

Can somebody please tell me who got booted tonight? I was watching the local broadcast of LOST (earlier than on ABC) and forgot about Idol!
