    I am so pissed they kicked off the kid who lived in his car!!!!!!!!!!!! he was really good. poor kid :(

  • troy

    I don’t have a favorite yet and I don’t know honestly know if I’m going to watch enough to even have a favorite. But I am not surprised to see Amanda who Randy described so more memborably as: “Sort of Janis. Sort of Joplinish,” make it.

    I can see Simon having the same complaint about her as he did about Chris Daugherty which he did pretty much the same thing every week which was a rock number. It will be interesing to see what range she has.

  • silvia


  • alicia

    i don’t like amy’s voice…

  • v-loyalist

    Definitely will root for my fellow Filipina Ramiele Malubay!
    A short lady with a big voice! Good luck to her and will pray for her to make her on the top 12!

  • wbane

    i really like Carly Smithson for the girls. the irish chick. she has a really good voice.

  • Adam

    I am very mad that Carly Hennessy is in the top 24. She failed already when she had a career in the hands of Randy Jackson when she was signed to MCA. Kristy Lee Cook also failed when she was signed to Arista Nashville.

  • Ladymoonstone

    Syesha Mercado and Ramiele Malubay…she is cute

  • Susan

    I loved Joanne Borgella!!
    She’s got a beautiful voice.

  • poy2006

  • model scout

    Brooke White looks good! There is something interesting about her face! I hope she has a great voice.

  • cain

    Asia’h and Brooke White.

  • miss_philippines

    Calling all asians!!! Let’s all root for ramielle! Wouldn’t it be nice to have like her as the next american idol? :) Go girl!

  • Kamila

    My favorite girl is Amanda Overmeyer.

    And Kady, Alaina and Kristy are very talented.

  • bikenkaty

    Absolutely KADY all the way! I can’t wait to hear her sing next week! Great pics girl!!

  • 1123

    Go Ramielle!!!!!

  • rita

    I HATE Kristy Lee Cook.
    I was annoyed at how she failed the first audition in hollywood week, so she sang Amazing Grace AGAIN, the very same song that got her the ticket in the first place.. CHEESE.
    OMG and the way she tried so hard in the dance segment at the end of last night’s show.. PATHETIC.

  • Dods

    I only like Brooke and Carly! The rest is just eh, whatever…
    Still can’t belive they cut Cardin, she was the most talented over there! And the ways she reacted, WOW, very classy!

  • Dods

    Oh, and I hate Kristy Lee and Syescha…

  • Eva_baby

    I am annoyed that we got to see Carly Hennessy’s backstory, first audition, both Hollywood week auditions, plus flashbacks of her original audition and her second Hollywood audition while we never even got to see who the heck Colton Berry is. She got more face and voice time than six of the top 12 boys put together.

    It is obvious they are stacking the deck in her favor really hard, but all they did is succeed in making me dislike her intensely. And please, I don’t hear all the fabulousness they tell me over and over and over again that she is.

    I’ll root for Brooke, Asia’h, Alexandra and Rumiele instead, thanks.

  • Fundraising

  • joeyinc

    My faves are brooke and ramiele, although I think I would like to see brooke win more

  • fashionaddict

    all i want to know is where alaina got that fabulous one-shoulder yellow top she was wearing during her performance!!!
    oh, and i think its hilarious how all the asians are supporting ramielle based on her race.its obviously not based on her talent because her voice is so typical, nothing special about her.decisions based on race are pathetic.
