    Brooke and David were my favorite once again tonight!!! =) Jason’s preformance was good too! When is Kristy going to get sent home?? She’s going to be the next Sanjya if they keep her around much longer!

  • Kim

    jason rocks.

  • Annie

    Wrong arrangement for Castro. He performed Israel Kamakawiwo Ole’s version. Bit of a difference…

    He stole the show if you ask me. Absolutely perfect.

  • lizzybaby

    WOW.michael JOHNS!!! holy crap the high notes he hit were amazing!

  • [☆F a m o u s☆]

    this little phony ass retarded david archuleta’s getting a free ride by the judges. every male performed better than him but he’s the only one who doesnt get negative comments.

    its soooooooo obvious. everyone knows they want him to win so they can turn his simple, fake ass into the male miley cyrus.

  • danity kane

    ^^ i agree i hate david a. he’s so lame and gay!!!!! he’s so overrated and he’s just lame he looks so akward sometimes and is just so fake 2 me personality-wise….

  • sweet kisses

    Holy Castro. Jason was freaking AMAZING. I loved that version he did. Its so not the Judy Garland one.

  • elise

    i loved jason castros performance… it was awesome. i agree that Kristy lee cook needs to go home.

  • Jennifer W

    david archuleta was the best and he has my votes.

  • IdolFan

    >>^^ i agree i hate david a. he’s so lame and gay!!!!! he’s so overrated and he’s just lame he looks so akward sometimes and is just so fake 2 me personality-wise….

    I agree with you, Danity Kane. I’m still not impressed with that fish-lipped, averaged-talent boy wonder. I still don’t get it. And I wish they’d pull a surprise and just get rid of him already — or at least put him in the bottom three so he sweats a little. I believe he’s given all this praise for nothing. I mean, he’s mediocre in my eyes — and to my ears.

    In the meantime, I’m wondering what’s up with the judges and their take on Syesha? I think that they have something against her. I thought she was excellent tonight. But Randy and Simon had to find something wrong, even when she hit those Mariah Carey notes. I believe that she’s a contender for at least the final four. I sure hope she gets there despite Randy and Simon’s words against her.

    You go, Syesha, girl !!

  • COOK LUVER

    DAVID COOK IS #1 AND WILL GO VERY FAR WHETHER OR NOT HE BECOMES AMERICAN IDOL OR NOT
    ID LIKE TO C WAT HE DOES WIT THE TITLE OF IDOL
    ARCHULETA IS WAYY TOO YOUNG FOR THIS TITLE
    COOKS GOT MORE TALENT AND CHARISMA SO PPPPPPPFFFFFTTTTTT TO SIMON

  • PENN OBSESSER!

    word ^ :]

  • COOK LUVER

    =D

  • randi

    All you haters have to remember that David A. is only 17, and hes been throwin into “stardom” so hes probably over whelmed most of the time. Cut the poor kid some slack. GOD!

  • COOK LUVER

    never!

  • COOK LUVER

    he chose to be on this show so thats his problem

  • jasmine

    I think it’s unfair that david is getting all the attention and all the praises when there’s actually better performers and singers in that show!

  • COOK LUVER

    RESONSE TO JASMINE-

    IF YUR TALKING ABOUT DAVID A. HELL YA! BOUT TIME!

    IF YUR TALKING ABOUT DAVID C.- DAVID C. IS IN MY OPINION THE MOST TALENTED ONE THERE SO GO AWAY HATER!

  • COOK LUVER

    JASMINE IF YUR TALKING ABOUT DAVID A. THEN HELL YA!
    IF YUR TALKING ABOUT DAVID C. GOT AWAY HATER!

  • boopy boo

    David Archuletta is a creepy gnome.

  • Erin

    Jason Castro! He was fucking amazing.

  • at

    stop hating.
    go support your favorite idol, there is no reason to bash on others.

    you may not like david archuleta, but i know plenty out there who do. so just leave him alone.

  • Lailew

    Definitely loved DC…he’s gonna be a star!!

  • Petunia

    Jason Castro is wonderful…..I loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed it!.
    I also liked Kristy Lee Cook perfomance too.

  • Ann

    Jason was GREAT tonight, BUT I have to vote for my man, David Cook!

  • zoya

    DAVID COOK IS SMOKIN HOT

  • melissa

    JASON CASTRO!!!!
    LOVED ITTT! <3

  • b

    jason castro was the best of the night! brooke was pretty good too. dont like david archuleta at all, and i dont think that was his best performance at all, he needs to go. hes not as great as he is bragged up to be the other remaining guys are better.

  • screaam

    haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaateee david archuleta, i think the judges are told what to say with him, it’s just annoying
    on the other side, love brooke and jason.
    p.s.: i must admit that kristy was actually pretty good.

  • Amanda

    MICHEAL JOHNS has my vote!! he is amazingg and despite what everyone else thinks, i also really like Kristy Lee Cook, maybe thats just because i do like country music a lot, but w/e i think she is amazing, not all her performances are greattt, but all in all she has major potential, i think. at least i wish there was someone out there that thought that too… and i am not really feeling David Archuleta too much, yes he can sing, but he is not unique and original etc. he is a wimpy 17 year old who could pass for 10 years old (sorry but he does look very youngg!) and he looks awkward on stage most of the time when he performs. okay that is my sayyy… Carly Smithson is also greattttt and Syesha too i guess… everyone else, Who cares??!

  • brookewitherocks

    question what the hell did simon meen in brooke proformance i don’t get good or bad!!!!!!!!!

    David Cook: THE BACKUP SINGER WELL I DID LIKE THAT BUT HE SING IT REALLY REALLY WELL LOVE IT (BEST) he look like the one it the killer

    my vote will always go for brook but if not i will be for mr. COOK or Jason

  • davidaislove

    davis a all they way baby

  • IdolFan

    Brooke gets on my nerves with that fake-ass smile and crying of hers, and the whiny way she gets when she doesn’t do well or gets criticism. She started off being unique. But I quickly realized that she really is mediocre, IMO.I thought she butchered Carol King’s song tonight.

    Carly and Syesha are much better. I want them in the finals !!

  • Olga

    I’m voting for Jason Castro! He was great!

  • T

    I voted for david a. Ive been fan of his since the beginning. Although im kind of getting bored with all the power ballads. I would like to see him do something a little more upbeat.

    im also a fan of Brooke, David C, Jason, and Michael johns. Its hard to pick just one. They are all so talented

  • ROLLING EYES

    THE MEN ROCK!!!!!!

    I LOVES THEM ALL!

  • j

    i don’t understand all this hype with david cook. i mean he can sing but to call him original would be going too far. those rock versions of songs that he did weren’t his – they were by other bands/ artists. in short, all the compliments he’s been getting for being original and all that, well, he didn’t really deserve them.

    that’s just my opinion. maybe he’ll actually start interpreting songs in the weeks to come instead of just delivering someone else’s version, i don’t know. until then, i won’t be calling him the next american idol yet.

  • rolling eyes again

    One of the guys have to win this season… it would be a true injustice if it came down to a guy or a girl… the girls are good this time

    THE BOYS BABY… ALL THE WAY!

  • rolling eyes again

    I meant the girls aren’t good this season

    it should come down to a guy and a guy for the final 2
    thats it…Im done =)

    IT´S UR OPTION AND YOUR MONEY NO MY!!
    AND JC IS VERY COOL TOO
    LOVE HIM..

  • Amanda

    Both Davids butchered their songs… especially David C… I’ve been an OLP fan since I was like 12 and when I heard he was doing that song I got super excited… until he opened his mouth… David A *shudders* another teen age favorite toast… even Jessica Simpson did a better job… although Robbie Williams did it best…

    I think ALL the girls did well tonight but Carly was my favorite. I’ll admit the end of her performance wasn’t as intense but I can see her growing into the preformance thing…
