  • Channelsurfer531

    I’m really digging “This is the Time of My Life” by Reggie Hamm…so many of these songs sound like they would be on the Grey’s Anatomy soundtrack… which I like better than the cheesy songs they’ve had the AI winners sing in the past…

  • KAsia

  • gWEN t.

    She sucks

  • nett

    Vote for Jason Castro !!! He is AMAZING !!!!

  • AJ

    Now that Michael Johns is gone I’ve completely lost interest in the show. The remaining idol-wannabees have mediocre talent and pale in comparison to Johns.

  • http://msn lips, tits ass OH WTF.

    Not everyone can sing Mariah songs. This will be intresting.She was Oprah today, she’s like one of the best singer .Love her.

  • Steve ship

    She has a HORRIBLE voice. Can’t stand her style.

  • Jennifer W

    im voting for david archuleta all the way

  • Suzie

    What a bummer…Michael was supposed to sing “Vision of love”! I would have loved to see that!

    It will be interesting to see what they sing. I bet that Archuleta will do “Hero”…that’s the type of song that he’s been doing.

  • Mikkie

    My fav. songs for the writting contest are Dream Big and Align. =)

  • Molly

    This woman is everywhere! Ahhh! Please make her stop!

  • Amy

    I disliked Faith. It was a crappy cliche inspirational song. It’ll be big on the pop charts, though.

  • Laura


    :P He’s the best !


    OMG! Mariah is baaaaaaack!

    #14 Mariah was fantastic on Oprah today. I’ve never seen her looking so great. Really!!! She’s slimmer than ever and beautiful. She looks so young for her age. I think she’s in love. I couldn’t believe it. This will be another Mariah Carey year, wait and see. It’s perfect timing. This new CD is going to sell out quickly and she’ll be up for more Grammy’s. I’ve been worried about her in past years, but looks like she’s all better now and I’m sosososo happy to get the ol girl back.

  • Erin

    I love David Archuleta. He is the best!!!! I hope someone sings “one sweet day” I love that song. What a classic.

  • Erin

    I love David Archuleta. He is the best!!!! I hope someone sings “one sweet day” I love that song. What a classic.

  • minnie

    The song I like at the moment is The Time Of My Life. =]
    Listening to the others now as well.

  • unnamed

    It’s an old news now. I’ve seen some details before at afromingle DOT co m There also has some hot stars profile with their photoes and blogs.


    I listened to all the song and for sure my favorite is “Thank You Whatever Comes”
    I would love to hear either David Cook with a edgy arrangement, David A or Carly…I think it would rock.
    The lyrics are deep and send a message of being grateful for whatever comes your way…Awesome…!

  • gwen

    the best song BY FAR, and one of the most popular, is “IN THIS MOMENT” by Ryan Gillmor. All of the songs are good, but this song reallllly stood out for me. Go vote !!!

  • paupau

    Darn… is going to be a very very BORING night… thank goodness for DVRs!!!!

  • fierceish

    votee for jason ! :D
    he is amazingg. <3

  • AmIdolrocks

    “The Time Of My Life”, written by Regie Hamm, is clearly the perfect song for this competition. AMAZING lyrics, memorable melody. I think it will win!

  • ialltheway

    I think “No Turning Back” is perfect for David!!! would really love to see him sing a song that fits him then get stuck with something lame….need to vote on a song that suits him…
