vocally Pia has it above the others, but she needs to develop her stage presence if she wants to become a pop star. James' version of George Harrison's "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" was poignant and beautifully delivered. Jacob is very one-dimensional as is Haley. Casey and his upright bass make a great combo - i could see him headlining in Vegas, Paul - he is ok, has lots of stage presence, would make a great front-man for a band. Scotty is destined to follow in Carrie Underwoods footsteps and become the next big country star to come out of American Idol. Stefano did a really good job last night, but he lacks that "wow" factor. Lauren could be a dark horse as she has a really good voice just needs some more maturity

still love James!! Pia bores me...Paul....can't stand, i have to mute the T.V when he is on. I love Haley and Lauren did a spectacular job last night. I remember season one, when Kelly Clarkson did that song, i got shivers..I didn't get shivers with lauren, but i agree, she could be the dark horse.

What a farce tonight was . Adam Lambert loses to Kris Allen . Chrystal Bowersox to LeeDeWyze .Katherine McPhee to Taylor Hicks and now PIA TOSCANO to whomever .

I predict that PIA will have a career that will span 50 years .

Iggy Pop being on American Idol would be something like Steven Tyler becoming an AI judge . It was just your imagination .

OMG no not Pia...:eek:

I did not vote for anyone this week so I can't complain.

I said it a few posts above...Judges why use the save on Casey now when someone good like Pia may be in trouble.

But Pia will do just fine. It's not about the actual win it is about getting into the top 10.

Pia has an amazing voice and beauty but she needs to work on her fear and shyness when on stage.

OMG...Iggy Pop...Really American Idol???:eek: Steven Tyler could go shirtless.....Iggy put the shirt back on.

It was very interesting that Jacob ,James and Stefano looked as though they were going to die on the stage ,yet Pia was smiling .

Jackie Thon ,the pride of LI was on the show a few years ago,made it to the top 20 and was cut .She has since released several CD's and has appeared all over the country in concert .She could not "hold a candle" to Pia .I cannot wait to buy Pia's first CD.

yep that was quite the shocker, Pia will do just fine, she will have a great recording career, its too bad that she won't have the title of "American Idol". I think what happened was that a lot of people felt, she is so good that she doesn't need my vote i will help out another contestant, so vote, vote, vote, vote for your favorite because no one is safe. My pick is James

James has the best voice of the remaining singers ,in my opinion .It would have been great to have him and Pia as the final 2.

However ,based on America choosing Taylor Hicks ,Lee DeWyze and Kris Allen who knows what will happen .

Henry, I thought of you as I watched Pia being cut.

Great singers do not necessarily make Great Recording Artists or Great Performing Artists.

There are lots of people that can sing but will never be super-stars.


I'm curious to know if there are any stats on the demongraphics of the AI Voting Audience.

My guess is that there are more young females voting which means more males will move forward (at least those that can sing). I think Stefano could go far if he sings something in his age range and gets an image makeover. He's just such a cutiepie.

You would expect that, but I don't think its the case. He's not singing songs that are relevant, and i would venture to guess that most girls in his age range, have never heard the songs he picks.

My guess is his votes are coming from the 60+ crowd who think he does a good job of singing songs they remember.


Of course this is pure speculation and I have nothing to back this up.

I think if he sange Justin Bieber, his votes would soar through the roof.



i heard today that Pia's deal may fall through. Looks like Idol is going to hold her to her contract which prevents any independant work for almost a full year after the show. She signed her life to idol when she signed up for the show. On the radio this morning, they said that idol has one of tightest contracts in the business.

Me .....

James-A+
Casey B-
Haley- B-
Stefano-A++
Jacob- (I always fast forward him!)
Laurin-A+
Paul- A


Henry - you rated CAsey as A+ and C- , did you love him and hate him at the same time?????

I love James (and i detest Heavy Metal!).

I had mixed feelings on Casey. I thought his performance was just okay. I love jazz, but it wasn't doing it for me.

Haley sang the song well, but not for this level of competition. She didn't show anything new. She's done better

Stefano was just amazing.

Lauren - beautiful.

Paul - I just love his enthiasm. He brings something new and fresh. For the finale, I hope he gets to do a duet with Rod Stewart.

You missed Scotty McCreepy (maybe he was one of your Casey's?). He just sounds the same every single time.

My bottom 3 - Jacob, Casey, and Haley. I hope Jacob goes home.

i agree that Jacob has to go, he is so one-dimensional. I think that James has what it takes to go the distance.

That was a typo ,I meant to have Scotty at C-

I personally will never want to see Rod Stewart on TV or anywhere else ,its personal .

Henry, unfortunately, I think you are wrong; I think it is my guy Paul going home. Of course, I am rooting for either James or Lauren to be the one's sent home but don't think it will happen.

Just curious...what is the appeal of Paul?? I don't mean to offend you all that like him, but IMO, HE CAN'T sing and i find him ubercreepy!!! I am praying he goes home tonight! I was liking haley until last night...like somebody said, too one dimensional. Jacob....well i could take him or leave him. He won't make it to the end. Lauren is amazing, but i don't feel, mature enough. She will end up like Miley Cyrus..(although Lauren can actually sing) Scotty boy...get him off AI and get him a record deal with a country label.

GO DURBIN!!!!!!!!

I will miss Paul. Granted it was charaoke, but he did an amazing job of Maggie May.

I'll miss him!


Somebody, PLEEEEEEASSSEEEE send Jacob home. If he wins, I will never watch idol again.

I love Rihanna, but realized last night that she is not a great singer. she would nto have made it into the top 10 this year. She needs to stop singing songs which showcase her voice and focus on the dance music.

I enjoyed Paul's Maggie May.

I never was a fan of Jacob or Casey.
I don't fast forward them But....when Jacob sings I go brush my teeth and when Casey sings I go put on my PJ's.

I agree, he will have a career, but he won't be a superstar. Some of the others do the potential to be music stars.
