    Everyone did an awesome job last night with the exception of Kellie who admitted on air that she "butchered it". I can’t believe how great of a mood Simon was in, he really didn’t say anything that bad about anyone the entire show! I think Taylor, Katherine and Paris really shined and my guess is that Ace will be going home. Did you all see his hair? I personally didn’t like it all slicked back, but it was nice to see how it would look if he cut it off. I think Elliot is such a sweetheart but Taylor Hicks is still my pick to win!!!

  • Erin Leigh

    I spelled Elliott’s name wrong, sorry man!

  • 92122girl

    No way…PLEASEPARIS GO HOME!!! She is so COCKY.. She acts like she is better than the original singer. NOT!! She will never be a hit because her music is to OLD school!!!!

    I thought they all sounded much better than last week. Maybe it’s easier to sing the "classics" than it is to sing Queen, who just happens to be one of the all time greatest bands. I would say that the bottom three should be KELLIE, ACE and probably ELLIOTT. I think Kellie or Ace should go home but most likely it will be Ace. I really don’t care for Taylor too much (his body bending looks painful!) I know I don’t like Kellie or Paris. I think the last two standing should be Katharine and Chris. Good show last night!!

    Kellie NEEDS to go home. She herself admitted she did an awful job. Ace got good remarks from everyone- even Simon. You know the girls love him. Katharine has a beautiful voice and seems so humble. I don’t want to say she should win because winning doesn’t mean you’ll be great star. I think she has the most potential of being very successful.

    Kelly was awful but let’s face it, she isn’t going anywhere. Why? Not because she has any music talent but because she is Fox’s pick and they havn’t spent all this time and effort promoting the little minx for nothing.Personnally, I thought Ace looked awful. Then again, if he looked as he usually does, I’d be saying the same thing. There is something about that guy that just doesn’t sit right with me. Perhaps it was all those weeks of him making love to the cameras, or the fact that he seems to have to force the lyrics out, maybe that he seems so errogant and stuck on himself. There is something that just seems unnatural about him. Katherine is as talented as she is beautiful. Her voice as well as her presence makes her one of the ones to beat.My picks for the final three are still Chris, Taylor and Katherine. I think Elliot is also very talented but unfortunately he doesn’t "fit" into the mold due to his looks. I do hope however that someone offers him a contract. If this show were based only on singing talent, he would be one of the top contenders.

    I would send Ace or Elliot home, it’s probably gonna be Kellie- she was the worse, but then again she has a big fan base. I loved Katherine’s song! it was so pleasant!

  • Kelly

    Well my guess for the bottom 3 tonight would be Ace, Kellie, and Paris. My prediction is that Ace might be leaving us. But boy Simon was actually nice to really ALL of the contestants last night! I was surprised! I really LOVE Taylor, Katerine, and Chris and I believe they might go all to te final 4 or something like that. We’ll just have to see tonight!And what a lovely pic of the whole crew and Rod, Penny, and little Alistair. Cute!

    1st of all I have to say, What a cute baby!! Now, for my opinion on the "idols"..Chris & Katherine are my picks. They’re definitely the best…by far. Kellie won’t be going anywhere because ppl love the "ignorant lil country girl." I feel like everytime time she opens her mouth, she’s gonna say something stupid. It’s like I’m embarrassed for her. Taylor and Ace make me absolutely gag. Did you see SNL make fun of Taylor…OMG – sooo funny! I mean, look @ his face in the pic above…it explains EVERYTHING! Ace is just a puke IMO. He’s the poster boy for boy bands. I can barely stand to look @ him. Paris is kind of annoying. Like Simon said, she talks like Minnie Mouse. Elliot will get booted. Although he can sing..he just doesn’t "look" like an idol (as some would say). So the bottom 3 for me is Ace, Taylor, and Paris. Ace and Taylor are pretty much tied for me…I don’t care who goes 1st but they BOTH need to get booted.

  • melissa

    i dont like katherine. she’s a good singer, but to me, she seems more conceited than humble. id rather see chris win. his song was really good to me. ace was terrible, his "falsetto" sounded like screech. i like elliot too, he’s an awesome singer. paris was good too. taylor was okay.

  • rosanne

    My top 3 are Chris, Paris, and Katherine. I’m really glad Ace went home. Now there are six! My order from 1st-6th are Paris Chris Katherine Elliott Kellie and then Taylor.I don’t think Chris or Paris deserved to be in the bottom three I think Ace Taylor and sort of Elliott did deserve to be in the bottom three.

  • trendyuen

    Katherine sings beautifully but tt’s coz she is well & professionally trained. I wouldn’t want to see her win though coz she doesn’t have that much of a personality, stage presence and showmanship, don’t you think? She’s mostly just too caught up with her singing…

  • voltaire

    Real World Top 3: 3rd – Elliot. 2nd – Paris. Winner – Crazy Taylor. Mark my words.Dreamy Fantasy World Top 3: 3rd – Katherine. 2nd – Chris. Winner – Elliot.

  • Erin Leigh

    I agree that Taylor will probably win (and rightfully so, I think he’s great) and I think Kellie and Chris will also be in the top three. For every person out there who can’t stand Kellie, there are at least 3 other people who love her and will vote for her. As far as Chris goes I think he has a great voice and a good fan base but I think Elliot deserves to be in the final 3 more. I really like Elliot, he seems like such a good guy.
