    Alright JJ–last night was the first time I probably watched it all the way through. What is up with this Pickler girl? How dumb can one girl be? I didn’t think she did all that great. I did like the gray-haired dude though–he rocked the house. And I am rooting for Paris to win although she has looked uncomfortable of late. Maybe she can get more Beyonce in there to get her groove on again.

  • i heart chris

    There was some dark eyeliner on my darling last night, but it looked hot hot hot. he is so great. i hope he doesn’t win american idol so that he can go on and have a legitimate career. and he will… he is really talented.

    Why was mandisa rehearsing with Queen when she was voted off the week before? Further, why is she in a promo picture with them as well?

  • hr

    i’m rooting for paris or taylor. kelly’s outfit/hair was hideous! paris looked.. "different" but she’s got the personality to overshadow any bad fashion choices. didn’t you think that Queen just wanted to punch Ace? he is so annoying!

  • me

    Mandisa was there because they taped the segment early last week, before she got the boot. She was slated to sing "Who Wants To Live Forever" but since she was gone McPhee took it over. Frankly, I would have loved to hear Chris Daughtry sing it. According to a friend of mine who works on the show nobody can stand Picker. Apparently the stupid thing isn’t an act but is really annoying.

    Ace is so annoying. So is Pickler. He thinks he is so freaking cute and he sucks ass. He butchered that song. It sounded like shit. Poor Queen for having to allow him to do one of their songs. I am tired of the dumb act from Pickler. I cringe when she speaks. I didn’t mind her at first, but that bitch must go too.

I give Elliot a gold star for his performance last night. Not a fan but he did a nice job.

  • Leia

    Ace was so bad! Bryan should’ve slapped him silly for suggesting to butcher the song Queen wrote with their heart and soul. Pickler looked like 60 year old witch last night, gosh, someone in the lighting department and make-up sure hates her very much.

  • rachel

    i think elliott and katharine did really great! love them!

  • traci

    If the show doesn’t improve, Im done with Idol. Im tired of Fox trying to cram Pickler down our throats. She has been their pick from the beginning. It is also very tiresome watching Ace make out with the camera every week. This is supposed to be about talent. Singing talent. Not looks. Now that one of the truely talented people (Mandisa) has gone, I tune in only for Taylor, Katherine and Chris.

  • southerngal

    I agree with Traci 100%!! I am so tired of Kellie I could puke. The worst thing about Kellie is she is not confident on stage at all. She is so hesitant and she trys to force confidence but it doesnt work. Just all seems so unnatural when she is on stage. Now Taylor and Chris are mind blowingly confident. Both are xexy in thier own way! And Taylor – WOW. He rocked the house big time! GO T !

  • Jam

    Hmmm, I really don’t think Elliott gets enough credit. He can really sing.Chris (while he’s a good singer) just gets repetitive with his style. Katherine is good, although at times she screams her words.Taylor is Taylor.Ace needs to go home. He’s definitely the weakest singer left.Paris is alright (I liked her better at first). But sometimes it’s annoying the way she dances around like a chicken on stage.Kellie…what do you say about Kellie. She’s certainly not the best. She’s cute but that whole country thing is annoying.It’s a good thing Mandisa went home. She was just so eh. Bucky, you couldn’t understand a thing he said when he sang.There’s my opinion
