    It should have been Katherine instead of Chris, but since I’m rooting for Taylor or Elliott to win I’m kinda glad to see Chris go. He was major competition for the guys. This won’t be the last we see of Chris Daughtry I’m guessing he’ll have an album out as early as next year. He’d be really easy to market and so would Katherine. For once, though, I’d like to see someone like Taylor or Elliott win because they have so much more passion than the others. Did anyone see Taylor dance with Elliott’s mom last night? It was sooooooo cute!

  • Haley

    im still in shock!

  • anon

    Katherine McPhee messed up on her lyrics and she didn’t get booted off? Any way there are rumors on the net that the group LIVE will announce that they are interested in Chris fronting their band.

    NOOOO!! not acceptable!!! please support chris by signing the petitions, and voicing your opinions! please click on my name! http://www.myspace.com/americanidolboycott4chris

  • i knew it

    its official. America is officially retarded. you idiots really think some grey haired southern hick from the SOUUUULLL PATROOLLLLLLLL is going to be succesful post american idol? ha….ha ha……..i pity you……for you are going to choose some lame, vegas stage performer wannabe as your american idol who will NOT be successful, who’s songs you will NEVER hear on the radio except for stations that play soft rock favourites of yesterday and today, and who is just lame lame lame lame lame. good luck with all of that. i’m going back to canadian idol where the good singers actually win.

  • Nikki

    i have never been more shocked ever. Seacrest said his name in like a low tone so im lik oh alrite hes kidding. The look on katharine mcphees face was refreshing. I truly believe she thought chris deserved it more and she was in shock like she was almost mad chris got booted over her.

  • WHAT???

    I bet Katherine has her sciencult call in. This is BS… she must be blowing Tommy M. He is a scumbag and was blinking like a mad man when looking at her. Katherine is good… but NO WHERE near as good as Chris.. Katherine is an oprea singer if best!! BS SHE SHOULD BE THE WEDDING SINGER!!!! Chirs ROCKS!!!! I am startingto think my favorite show is fixed!!! Someone is moving numbers, or not letting them get through, around!!!! But for Chris probably the best thing… he can make his real music and not be forced, like Kelly, to do that teeny bopper crap for a year!!!!

  • Katie

    I was so shocked, Chris should have gone through. He’s really talented and I still can’t believe he was cut. :(

  • g

    its sad to see chris go.. it should have been kat instead but im just happy to see elliott is safe…

  • knb

    I don’t think I could breathe for an hour after I heard that. I was praying it was a joke and I still think something is seriously wrong. I tried to vote for the 2 hours that the lines are open over 100 times and I never got through, that needs to be fixed. Can you imagine how many votes he would have had if everyone who tried got through??

  • LAFan

    To I knew it: I truly take offense to you calling Taylor " a hick". He is a personal friend of mine whom I have watch perform for over 8 years. He has paid his dues and has worked very hard for this exact moment. Where as his music may not be your personal taste, I find your comments to be very harsh and unfounded. I too am personally sadden of Chris’ departure. He was excellent competition for Taylor and it has been very exciting to both of them achieve such greatness. Try not to be such a ‘hater’!

    Kathering should be gone but whatever. I’m just glad Elliott is still there.

  • knb

    Elliott should have gone, he’s not consistent at all and he’s very pitchy. Don’t get me wrong, I like all of them but only Chris had actual star power.

  • Betsy

    McPhee shoulda gone! She forgot the words! This show is rigged. Go Elliot

  • Courtney

    EVERYONE on the show was shocked! I was too! I’m not even watching the rest of the show! I’m so pissed off!! You can’t tell me that fuckin Taylor Hicks or Elliot or Katharine (who is pitchy as hell) is better than that? I feel so bad for Chris! The only thing I can think of is the majority of the American Idol audience is younger kids/teens who don’t like hard rock music….its ridiculous!! All I can is it will show in the record sales! I’m buyin it!

  • Bonnie Silva

    I think that is bullshit that Chris Daughtry was kicked off,He is 150% better than any of the ones that are still there the other dont light a candle to chris he is the best ever,I am still in shock i will never what american idol again,Good Luck chris in my eyes you are the american idol.Bonnie

  • neenee

    Chris is such a perfect AI. I hope he’ll cut a deal with a major recording company. He does rock. With his voice and charm, he’ll definitely go somewhere….. Aaaaargh, I am not in the good mood right now!

  • ninjasgirl

    This reminds me of the presidential election back in 2000 where Gore had the more votes but magically ol "W" some how won the election! Chris was "robbed" and no one left behind can replace him as far as I and many other fans are concerned. There is "always" a bright side to almost every situation and in his case it will be the fact he has had some much exposure to the "heavys " in the entertainment industry. If he had won Idol he’d have to be contracted under them and abide by their rules . He is now a "free agent" and after deciding who he will have to manage his career will no doubt have "many" offers and become a wealthy entertainer. I will definately be looking for his first CD and cannot wait to see him live in concert after he is done with the American Idol tour. Best of luck to Chris and his family "YOU ROCK"!!

  • super girl

    i so really sad that chris left but i i hope katherine does better and wins from the other 2 guys.

  • pam

    I’m 30 and not a teeny bopper. That being said I still love Kat. And I love Elliott and Taylor. I’d be happy if any of them took the top prize. All of the last 4 have great voices but honestly…Chris was not my cup of tea. I was shocked to see him go but i do think that a great deal of his fans are the viewers that don’t actually vote and call in. There are obviously a lot that do and thats why he made the top 4, but not as fanatical as the final 3′s fanbase. This is where i think it caused a detriment to him.

  • Peter

    i called it! in your last AI post i said that Kat would not be going home and Chris was.

  • j4r3d

    Good job, Peter. *HIGH FIVE*

  • SilverHawk

    You didn’t need to hear what the judges said in reponse to this. Just look at the their faces. Simon was pissed off.I love Chris but gawd. People have to move on. Because Chris was way too good for this show. Maybe now he’ll have a real career instead of wtf those craptastic American Idol albums that’ are churned out. If I have to hear that stupid Daniel Powter song one more time on MTV, I’m going to scream.I hope Elliot wins now.

  • +greenpeace+

    maybe to be voted off helps Chris to become real singer (future FUEL frontman) and not having to have "American Idol winner" plastered to his forehead to help launch his career. I think this is not a bad thing and a reminder next time if you idolize your contestant please VOTE and don’t just left comments or brags about it….I think Elliot will be your next American Idol! hahahaha…so be prepared people (not an AI fan for this season, just an observer)

  • pud333

    Chris doesn’t need AI. He’s already getting offers, so he’ll be fine. Elliott and Taylor and maybe even to a certain extent, Katharine, need to win AI.

  • the real tita

    ninja’s girl: you don’t win the presidency by popular vote. Where did you go to school? You should ask for a refund. You get the electoral votes!!! You shouldn’t make comments that makes you look more stupid than you already do! Gore lost, live with it!!

  • almaliza

    I’M STILL IN SHOCK……WHY OH WHY DID CHRIS GET VOTED OFF AND NOT KATHERINE
