No favorites yet. I'll be watching more diligently now that selections have been made. The selection process was too choppy for me to hold interest. Some they highlighted didn't make it, couldn't keep track. Glad Cowboy Joe got knocked off, too much attitude.

I too, have quit watching. Just can't get interested, with the way they're running the eliminations now, and I absolutely CAN'T STAND Steven Tyler! Perhaps when they narrow the field down a bit more, I can find something worth watching there. Strange thing is, that in the early years of this show, I was glued to the tube when it was on?

Point well taken Henry. At least she has "half a brain", and isn't at all hard to look at! (Don't tell the lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) I said that!) I have to agree that someone with a more solid "singing" background would make a lot more sense as a judge.

The only thing that bothers me about Randy is his AI vocabulary . When he is on other shows ,example as guest host with Kelly Ripa his speech patterns are totally different .

Well,they got their contestants now. I think America did a great job this year with their selections. I anticipated a few to be teeny bopper picks, but they chose wisely this year.

My early thinking:

1)Colton-excellent voice ,personality

2)Philip -as above + a catchy name

3) Joshua-good voice but I'm not sure if he can do well in every music genre

4)Heejun -same as #3

5)Jermaine-a fan favorite ,reminds me of the Season 2 winner who went inro music oblivion

6) Erika-a powerful voice but not that clear

7)Skylar-see #6

8)Hollie-nice voice

9)Shannon-a very good voice but she appears to be a bit aloof

10) Elise -very good voice

11)JESSICA-The best singer in the competition
----------------
The last 2 guys should not have been brought back. I would have selected Aaron and Creighton

This show is absolutely brutal!!!! Check out The Voice or X Factor. By far superior and much more professionally put together. Stand by for Ryan Seacrest to join X Factor next season "just saying". Oh and by the way Steven Tyler is great!!!!!

The Voice. I hear it was on last year but never saw it. I see they picked their "teams", but have no clue what happens now. When will they be on?

I've begun to really lose interest in American Idol the last 2 years. I don't care for Tyler or JLo as judges, and the elmination/auditions just seemed to drag out forever. Perhaps I can get more into it now that they have the final contestants.

As for the X-Factor. I enjoyed that. I thought the format was great and the judges did ok (and the 2 I didn't care for are gone). I'm glad the host is gone too. He was awful. It would be interesting to see if Ryan joins the X Factor, but I don't know if they could afford them. I'm sure this year will be better now that they know what works and what doesn't.

I also like the Voice. I think they have the right mix of judges and the main genres of music are covered with them. It's a completely different format than AI and XFactor and I don't have to sit through what seems likes months worth of auditions/eliminations like the others. I'm glad everyone has renewed for next season already.

The Voice is on Monday nights.

Jermaine blew it! How long did he think it would be before things were found out? He'll likely go home and still be a hero for making it to the finals.

Well, I watched the whole show last night, and in my opinion, the only two singers there who can REALLY sing, and perform, are the last two girls who sang. (Sorry, I don't even know the names.) All the rest, are just screamers, for the most part, who seem to think that "vocal gymnastics" are the only way to impress anybody. Sorry, I like to hear the "tune" and don't care to hear all those "runs" and all that falsetto crap in the middle of a good song. As far as the guy who got "released". I wonder how he lasted as long as he did, on national T.V., with FOUR outstanding warrants? Somebody certainly dropped the ball!

I did not watch last nights show yet ,I will do so today . One of the contestants who was sent home prior to the live show also had numerous arrests that apparently the AI staff was not aware of .

Joshua should win but I have a sneaky feeling that Philip Phillips may.

Default Philip Phillips

Considering the winners the past few years its very likely that Philip will win .

My suggestion is a change in the voting to a combination of judge votes and call in votes .

I missed a lot of the program last night due to phone calls coming in, but I think Philip will win, but he's certainly not the best. He's just unique.

Philip is a free spirit .He doesn't shake hands with the fans nor does he ask for votes as the others do.
