  • kush

    i can’t believe it!!!!!!!!! i wanted melinda to win!!!! blake should have gone home tonight!!!

  • johanna

    ok, i guess i can’t say that. well, whatever, she was by far the best singer. i won’t buy jordin or blake’s cds.

  • http://htt//justjared.com k

    That’s unfair.I don’t care about AI.

  • Katherina

    NO WAY!!!! SHE IS THE BEST!!!! Anyway, I am sure she will HUGE VERY SOON!!!

  • katie

    SOOOOOOOO HAAAPPPY! melinda was not that great. she is black and all black ppl can sing no offense but its true. she is also TOO old to be an american idol she is like 27-28. Did u watch her hometown thing…they were ALL elderly ppl out to support her. Melinda also always did this AWFUL throaty thing that was pretty annoying. Jordin is sure to win!!!!!!!!

  • Katherina

  • babyblush

    melinda and lakisha are better off not having the AI label on them, everyone know they’re good and now they can have more options to choose from then just being stuck with AI. Its a blessing in disguise look at jennifer hudson.

  • katie

    oh also.. Melinda has ZERO personality or a neck… she cant relate to any of the fans and thats why she got beat out by Jordin and Blake, cuz they are personable. Everytime she got a compliment she would stare blankly at them and say “.. thank u..”.. now all u ppl complaining, did u bother to vote for Melinda? Im in Canada so I cant vote but if i could i would have voted 100 times for Jordin

  • sez77

    JORDON TO WIN!!!!!!!

  • sez77

    JORDON TO WIN HANDS DOWN!!!!

  • sez77

    ^^^^ i mean… *ahem*

    JORDIN!!!!

  • Tucker

    oh snap oragatang face went home???
    I never watch this show but all I kept hearing was how good she was.

  • Colbert ROCKS!

    She is a good singer for a certain type of music … not for most of america obivously. She sings songs that were on records before she even born, what kind of CD would she put out? She will be fine and get her gig she is not american idol material, sorry she would not selll millions of records like the other idols have … better voice yes but not for all music so that is why she left tonight. not because jordin or blake are better singers, american idenifies more with their style then someone that sings from 1960′s

  • lurker opinion

    Wow I’m really surprise. Well this just goes to show the judges opinions don’t matter because they LOVED her.

  • what?!

    Jordin should have gone home!!!

  • [Fug Face [You]]

    “Shocker”?!? Ha This wasn’t a shocker Zacessa and those HSM kids getting a thread a day is a shocker. I knew the platypus was going home.

    Oh katie Hmmmm… you poor girl, For the black thing I would really like to back-smacked you ever so gently across your neck. [j/k] Lol But I do agree with you, she’s to old.

    So sad tho, she well never be a successful solo artist, she fcuking ugly, boring, and completely unmarketable. I think Shrek should get back into her old profession of mascot-ting

  • tanique33

    nobody can deny the girl can’t sing. BUT, they never once advised her to sing something contemporary. i’m not sure the girl every went past 1965, i mean honestly. i think that is what did her in. she felt old, her sound was old.

    a bunch of young people voting and voting want something a little more contemporary, i think. oh well.

  • bdj

    Melinda is a great singer. Hopefully, she will get a recording contract. Jordin will probably win American Idol. She has the looks and talent that Simon wants to market. Blake is good and has the teen votes. It should be a close race.

  • Ashley Tate
  • ?

    Jordin should have gone home weeks ago!!! I`m not gonna watch the finale because of her. She is a phony and she is not that good at all!!!

  • Naomi

    That really sucks! If anyone deserves to be Idol, it’s Melinda. She’s someone whose concerts I want to go to and whose albums I want to buy. Vocally superior to the other two. Although Jordin is very good, she needs a few more years experience before she’s idol material. Now I don’t want to watch the finale. SIGH!

  • Colbert ROCKS!

    I agree about her lack of personality, at 1st I thought she was very humble the way she always looked shocked but when Simon called her out on “stop acting shocked” she then didnt know how to act and just looked emotional less. Randy took her out of her comfort zone last night and gave her a Whitney song 20 yrs later then her usually songs but still 20 years ago … American made the right choice. Good news is the show gave her tools to make herself look better, I am sure she wanted to cry watching the early footage of seeing the fact that she didnt have a neck, ugh!

  • Jon

    I know alot of you are probably mad about Melinda leaving, but know that either way Melinda is gonna have a great career. She’s a great singer and performer. I think alot of people thought she was gonna be safe today, and got lazy with voting for her.

    As for the final 2

    Blake and Jordin were always my favorite and I’m glad thier there. Blake doesn’t have the best voice, but he was overall the better male throughout it. He kept true to himself, and was truly the most orginal we’ve seen in awhilee. I think Jordin’s gonna take it this year. She’s young, marketable, and has a great voice that anyone can

  • T

    Thank goodness, i’ve been hoping for her hype to end for a while. Go Jordin.

  • lala

    She kinda looks like 50 cent

  • [Fug Face [You]]

    Finals ratings will be the best ever.

  • Roberto

    i had a feeling she was going home, i should have voted

  • John

    JORDIN SUCKS!!!!

    BLAKE SUCKS!!!!

    I FEEL SO BAD FOR MELINDA, ITS SO SAD

    PS. CAN ANYONE ON HERE NOTICE JUSTJARED’S BIAS? ITS OBVIOUS THAT THE NIGHT MELINDA DID GOOD, HE DIDNT POST HER VIDEO! BOO! SHAME ON YOU!

  • J3$$!C@

    OMG I am so happy . I have always expressed how I wanted a Jordin/Blake finale and thats what its going to be. I like Jordin just a tad bit more than Blake but I dont care who wins I will be buying both their records. Now if only Dancing with the Stars will have Apolo win I will be in reality show heaven.

  • Toronto via La

    I love melinda, i am heart broken, I am not going to buy blake or jordin’s cd, I believe as some one said it before that this is a blessing in disguise, I know melinda will do better, look who america voted in last year as their idol, taylor hicks, chris never one and he is still doing better, i wish melinda all the best

  • gizmatage

    Well, I’m not even going to watch the result show tonight (I’m on the west coast) — and I have officially stopped watching AI tonight. This pisses me off, I actually had stopped watching AI since season 3, and started watching this season when I saw Melinda sang “I’m a Woman” a few months ago (before the Top 12). I’m disappointed.

  • gizmatage

    katie honey,

    I’m not sure if you realize this — but your comment on Melinda being black and all black people can sing is completely racists. You might not think so, but it is. And not only you made a racist remark, but you’re also “agist” — old people, she’s too old.

    Please get some education!

    I HATE people who make comment about other people’s “physical limitation” — like the “no neck” — or I also heard and read people write about Hllary Swank having a “horse face” — I mean, EVEN IF it’s true — it’s not like there’s anything they could do about it. Why go there? Are you that miserable in life that the only thing you could feel good about yourself is to attack the aspect they don’t really have any control over?

  • [Fug Face [You]]

    Lmao I cant stop laughing at – “Please get some education” omg that’s funny.

  • help it please

    If this Jordin girl wins, there is something she can do about it: GO ON A DIET! She should take better care of herself and look like a star. Jordin isn’t as heavy as some, but with her pretty face, she needs to run or something to be more marketable. THESE BIG GIRLS WITH GREAT VOICES ARE GETTING ON MY NERVES!

  • aida

    At the end of the day, looks won over talent.

    Melinda is one of the most talented and gifted singer I ever heard. Best of luck to her!

    Blake is a novelty that just gets annoying overtime. As for Jordin, she has a nice timbre if only she could consistently keep a tune ……

    The two left are not really the best talents but I must agree with the voting public, they sure are easy to look at!

  • TBenji

    So fing pissed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! RECOUNT NOW, THAT’S SOME BOGUS SHIT!!!

  • Mondo Bongo

    Katie ~ as a “black ppl” let me say this, you and American Idol can
    suck it up!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ENJOY ~

  • ryllstar

    WTF?!!!!! this is very upsetting… mel and jor are the best!!!!

    well now the rest of the world know how americans do their vote!!!!…..

  • Fleasha

    Can’t say I’m surprised by tonight’s results, really.
    Melinda has an extraordinary voice, but I don’t think most 15-year-old American kids would even bother to purchase some Whitney/Tina Turner-ish album.
    I’m not being bias, but it’s apparent that Blake is going to have the most commercial success out of the lot of them. Jordin, I love Jordin but the girl’s a tad young (seriously, “Mmmbop”?!) and she hasn’t garnered much music knowledge at the moment. I don’t know how she would turn out considering she would have zero control over her album.

  • Vanessa

    Yay, I’m so happy that Blake is still in. I was shocked to see Melinda go, though. She probably had one of the best voices on American Idol ever. But even if Melinda or Jordan had won, there’s really nothing about them that seperates them from all other girls who can sing. Even if they make an album, after a few years they’ll be forgotten about. They can sing, but that’s all they can do. Blake doesn’t have the best voice, but Blake is the most creative. Blake is very unique, and that’s really important if you wanna make it big. You need so much more than just a good voice.

  • faithinher

    That really sucks! Blake doesn’t deserve to be in the finals.

  • DoolittleFan CCornel

    I too am going to boycott American Idol next week and the following season. I’m just so sick and tired of this bullshit with the votes and all. Everyone knows that Melinda was the best — right from the beginning when she sang “My Funny Valentine,” which is what sold me.

    So Melinda consistently does good and gets booted this close to being a finalist? !! In favor of Blake? (That beatbox shit he does has been tired for weeks now) I mean, every song? Can he really use his voice to sing or not? And Jordin? You gotta be kidding !! Can carry a tune, but she’s inconsistent and doesn’t have no way near the training that Melinda had. Both she and Blake are neophytes. And they get to be the finalists? Bullshit !! It’s such an insult to Melinda and those of us fans who can actually decipher between a real singer from a wannabe singer.

    I’m so through with this show. For six seasons now it’s been the same old bullshit with the voting process. I’m so tired of investing my time and emotion into this show ending with the obviously more talented contestants out on their butts.
    Anybody remember Tamyra Grey? LaTanya? Bo Bice? Hell, I’ll go out on a limb — Katherine McFee? All of those finalists or semi-finalists most certainly should have won the title besides those who did. But because of AI’s fucked up voting process they didn’t. I’ve been saying for years that this shit is rigged. I mean, why else is American Idol the only contestant talent show that doesn’t involve the judges votes? “Dancing with the Stars” has a process where they allow you to vote via phone AND by computer, with a limited number of votes each, which are combined with the judges votes. The same goes with “So You Think You Could Dance?” — at least for most of the show. But with AI they allow people to vote with abandon a thousand times over ! Is that fair? Doesn’t even sound like it’s meant to be fair?

    So somebody please tell me, what the hell are the AI judges there for except to critique and make snide comments to each other? They really have no purpose except to try and influence the voters. This stinks. And it’s the last time I’m going to watch the show. I’m boycotting, for real. Like I said, it’s a total waste of my time when the producers allow the public to consistently chose the wrong finalists and winners. I’m done. AI, Simon, Randy, Paula, the show’s producers, and those dumb ass fans who voted for Blake (listen up Elisabeth Hasselback and Rosie O’Donnell — who unflinchingly and unfairly promoted and urged viewers every week to vote Blake) could go and fuck themselves. I’ve had it !!

    And live with ya’ll dumb ass decision. I’m signing that petition.

  • Nikki

    Melinda did actually good on tuesday but i was so happy that she went off cause the show has been way too predictable and now someone else has a chance….

    Good Luck 2 Blake and Jordin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • krufh

    i actually think that melinda’s first song the other night was a mess, and that the judges were covering it up!

    i think that if melinda won AI she would be just like fantasia, not that successful.

    anyway, i’m rooting for jordin!

  • moi

    Awwww! I LOVED Melinda! Da-uhm that gal could sing…Well when you think about it it’s good she didn’t win so now she won’t have that idol tag on her head to shake off and she can do really well like Chris Daughtry did

  • John

    I dont know why all of you guys keep saying that jordin has the “look” she looks like a drag queen, thats what the “look”is!!

  • DoolittleFan CCornel

    I suspect what they mean by “the look” is that she’s biracial — lighter skin, longer hair, youthful. Somehow that equals “more marketable” than, let’s say Melinda or LaKeisha, or any of the totally black women on the show. But I say it equals some racist, double-standard bullshit.
