Default American Idol fans my big bold prediction

Katharine McPhee or maybe Lisa Tucker still 96 contestants left but I believe these 2 will battle it out in the end.

I like the little blonde haired country gal,,,named Kelly Pickler, or something like that. She probably doesn't stand much of a chance since that "type" has won before. She really has a good voice, and quite a touching story about her life.
Interesting that Idol had double the people watching as did the Grammys! I think that may say something about the "condition" of todays music.

Kelly is predicted by many to win but my 2 girls are still in there the final 24 will be named tonight. Still Carrie Underwood is the best American Idol ever.

I'm thinking a guy will win this year....not sure who, but since Kelly Clarkson, I haven't been interested in any of them. Carrie is a great singer, but I don't listen to country music.

I sure would like to see a great male singer come out of this...

How about those twins?????? I can't believe they actually thought they had a chance! Number one, they can't sing, and with the attitude they have. Now the news about their "checkered" past! WOW Never a dull moment on the Idol.

Just because the last two winners were women, I have a feeling it's going to be a guy this year.... and probably a rocker because Bo was so popular last year. The Ace guy they have still in is really good, and not bad to look at . The other guy with the shaved head is really good too.

I agree that Carrie Underwood is the best so far, and I don't listen to country. I think this is going to be a really good season, there is tons of talent left!!

It had already come out on MSNBC.com that they had been arrested for forgery. I didn't like them anyway so I was glad they were gone.

I didn't care for them either. I thought it was very funny when the one brother quit because he thought the other one didn't get through and then found out he had got through to the next round and the first brother had to apologise. Kind of disappointed that the judges gave him another chance, but as it turned out it didn't matter. Arrogance is wasted on the stupid!!!!!!!

Ace is some fine eye candy!!! Don't think he is the best singer, but he sure is easy on the eyes.

Jodi I don't know if that can alone win it for the men. But I believe that can play a big part for the women look at Kelly and Carrie. Rueben wasn't a stud and neither was Clay but they both had the talent. Once Carrie last year sang Alone by Heart I knew she would win it but then again I always liked Heart.

And so is Ace! Bowled me over with Father Figure last night.

Definitely a guys year, I think they were far better than the girls this week...however, things can change....Lisa will be a force to be reckoned with.

Gotta vote for Paris, the little Gladys Knight look-alike and sound-alike.
Now that girl's got talent!

You guys have got it nailed for sure. I have to agree after hearing the vocals this week that Katherine McPhee has probably the best voice of the whole bunch, but little Lisa Tucker has the "unbeliveable" factor going for her. What an entertainer, and only 16 years old. Donna, you're right about Paris. Once again, a real factor in this contest, for sure. My original pick, little Ms. Pickler has a good voice, not great, but is so cute and loveable, and obviously liked by the whole group. Her background with her father leaving her, and living with her grandparents makes it hard not to really like her.
My wife (the lovely Mrs. Jones, Vita) drools when Ace in on the tube, and frankly, he too has a great voice, and great vocal control.
I kind of figured they'd get rid of the female "twin", with the news of her photo shoot for Maxim magazine. I wonder if she really lost, or if they just figured it'd be a good way to get rid of her without a lot of fanfare.
See you aboard,
Ken

i think that Lisa, Catherine and Paris are the best lady vocalists out of the group- they all have that "wow" factor.
Haven't gotten that "wow" factor from the guys just yet. Ace has a very nice voice, i also like Tucker?? the guy with grey hair.
Who got voted off? i was watching Dancing with the Stars and forgot to tape Idol.

I have to admit that I voted for Tucker. (a guy with gray hair can't be all bad!!) I don't know the names of those voted off,,,,the girl with the twin, and the heavy set guy. The other guy and gal were so forgettable, that I've forgotten them already.

Well the top 6 are still in that being Katharine, Lisa, Mandisa, Kellie, Ace and Chris I still say Katharine and Lisa will be there at the end but Mandisa and David can really sing. But the best moment was Carrie singing that song she sang.

I am now thinking that Chris has this locked up.

His rendition of Hemorrhage (In my hands) last night was unbelievable. I am still not yet impressed with the girls. I still think this is a guy's year. Gideon is also a powerhouse to be reckoned with.

What I always wondered is how many that did not win it all have made it big. I know Clay is still going but what about Bo or maybe some of the ones that came in 3rd or 4th?

What do you think of Paula last night. She sounded and acted like she doubled up on her pain meds again.

Hubby and I thought that too..... she was just odd, but then again, Simon was egging her on.

I thought Paula had been drinking. She just acted odd. As for Bo, our town newspaper had an article in it today that read- Bo Bice: New country artist. It seems he signed to RCA Records and had a No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Singles chart. He also, had an album released Dec. 13, 2005.

I like Chris. I think he's gonna be the next American Idol.
