    SAYESHA!

  • idoFan

    I really wish Archuleta would go. He’s so interminably boring. Meanwhile, Syesha was brilliant..

    And WTF is up with Randy? I don’t know what show he was looking at and hearing tonight, but what I heard and saw was the same old boring-ass David Archuleta. He has no stage presence. And to boot, he didn’t listen to Webber and closed his eyes during a portion of that interminably boring song.

    I just don’t get the hype and hoopla over this kid, who continues to pale in comparison to those who are much better IMO like David C., and yes, Syesha. At least SHE could hold notes and could sell a song, rather than being a one-trick pony like he is. Every song Archuleta sings sounds the same. And he does the same with it — the half dipping with his knees, the lip-licking in between phrasing and the eye-closing. There’s no appeal except for those clueless teenyboppers, who, by the way, I don’t understand why they were allowed on the stage to hug David A. WTF !! Talk about hype !! The producers were wrong in doing that, giving David A. a step up from the other contestants. They were pandering to that contingent mercilessly tonight. And it stinks !!

    Brooke needs to go. She should have left last week, IMO.
    I’m so sick of her backtalk and that phony “I’m about to cry” look that she gives week after week when she’s getting feedback from the judges. But tonight took the cake !! This is actually the SECOND time that she stopped and restarted a performance. And why didn’t somebody correct that liar when she pronounced that was the first time that she did that. Ryan should have jumped all over that. I mean, do they really expect us fans at home not to remember that blaring faux pas ? Puleeze !! She’s gotta go !!

    I don’t know what Syesha did to piss them off, but I can’t understand why, up until tonight, she had been getting only lukewarm critiques from those three. I think she has a big voice and is one of the strongest voices and performers on the show this season. But somehow she keeps getting these half-hearted comments from the judges. Poor Syesha. I love her though. And I keep voting for only her. I sure hope she is one of the Final Four, where she belongs.

    I’ll be happy though to see Brooke go bye-bye tomorrow. It’ll only be fair.

  • Jason_143

    So over Archuleta….can he do anything else? None of the “ballad” singers have managed to be very mainstream. Although I have no doubt the kid will be successful he really doesn’t seem like someone that would sell a lot of albums (except maybe to prepubescent girls with little tast), but even still is the sort of music he seems to excel in something they want…No. David Cook would be a much better winner. More talent and the ability to sing more than one style of music.

  • T

    David Archuleta was amazing tonight. I was surprised he spiced up the song a little bit. And the end of his performance was really sexy. which surprised me.

  • janet

    DAVID COOK <3333

  • michelle

    I agree with the above about Archuleta. And although I have not always been a fan, Syesha definitely shone tonight. (I dont think she should win the whole thing, but it was great tonight.)

  • Skye

    DAVID COOK IS FRICKIN AMAZING! Every week i wonder what he is going to do next and Im always surprised. He is the only contestant that I can say that about I hate Carly and David A. they bore me to tears with their same old boring crap and Brooke White is also annoying with little talent and range. DAVID COOK IS A TRUE ORIGINAL AND DESERVES TO WIN! His range is also amazing! LOVE LOVE LOVE HIM

  • IDEALaLLIGATOR

    Do Archuleta’s legs work? The kid is rigid.

  • Anais

    Syesha’s performance was good and so was David A. But voting for David Cook!
    :)

  • Erin

    I’m tired of Archuleta too. He sounds the same week after week after week…he needs to change it up, seriously.

    Brooke just needs to go.

  • Suzie

    Top of the night: Syesha, Carly and David Cook.

    Of course, Brooke and Jason have the weakest voices out of the six, so it was really hard for them to do well tonight (and they didn’t).

    And even though David A. does have the voice, he just does the same dreary ballad every week. He needs some personality!

  • paris

    JASON CASTRO!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • a

    I don’t get it when people say archuleta is over-hyped,
    no offense but so is david cook. song sounded the same as the original

  • kryzl

    and now jared is aaaall for david cook. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE DAVID ARCHULETA LOVE?! ugh jared, ugh.

  • ayickmba

    SYESHA!!!

  • Kodie

    Yeah I don’t get the big deal about David A. either. Yes, he can sing but I don’t see him doing very well.

    Now David Cook on the other hand would sell so many albums! In a way it’s almost better if he doesn’t win…he could be, like, the next Chris Daughtry.

    I definitely voted for David Cook though :)

  • Michelle

    David Achuleta and Jason Castro!!!!!

  • mary

    It is time for Brooke to say good bay to the show. She was the worst tonight and she is getting worst by the week. I love Castro he is soooooooooooo cute… I love his voice too… My favorite is David Cook. But I also love love love my cute Castro. :)

    Poor Brooke she is sooooooooo gone. :(

  • ayickmba

    SYESHA!!! cant even count how many times ive seen her perfomance. probably like 10* already.

    David A ~ B.O.R.I.N.G (i didnt even watch his whole performance cos i knew what it was going to sound like)

    BROOKE ~ she needs to go home…

    David C ~ he’s hot :)

    Carly ~ i like

    Jason ~ gas’ to go after brooke does

  • shorty

    i friggin love david cook..

  • ta

    not my favorite cook performance,
    it was boring. i almost fell asleep while listening to the song.

  • karizza

    lmao kryzl #15!!

    dude, don’t get me wrong but i love david archuleta. i just wish he’d do something more upbeat…:(

    so my heart is set on david cook for now…and i doubt it’ll ever leave! love ya DC!

  • cookie!

    omg…David Cook was SOOOO hot singing ‘music of the night’. SO HOT!! I love that song….but I love it even more with him singing it. He gives me shivers!! :)

    <3 <3 <3 David!

  • mary

    ayickmba
    “Jason ~ gas’ to go after brooke does” NOoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
    The once who should go before my hot Jason Castro are the following:
    1st Brooke White
    2nd Syesha Mercado
    3rd Carly Smithson. After those 3 are gone then my hot hot Castro can go.

    The two finalist are David Archuleta and David Cook.
    And the winner is going to be David Cook. :)

  • Remi

    How can anyone say that David Archuleta spice’s up ANYTHING? He’s sung ballads EVERY week!! (except for two weeks… which were his WORST so far!)…

    I really wish America would see him for what he is… a one trick pony…

  • Sarah

    okay, I’ve been a staunch Jason fan and haven’t liked David Cook (especially his always be my baby) but David C. won me over tonight. It showed that he had a lot of versatility. Can Brooke please go home?

  • Laura

    OMG! DAVID COOK WAS AMAZING !

    HE HAS TO WIN ! HE’S THE BEST !

    LOVEEEEE HIM !

  • cami

    Bottom 3 will be: Jason Castro. Brooke White. && probly Carly or Syesha??

    the Davids totally rule the show! David A and David Cook are both amazingly talented! You can’t deny that . even if your not a fan of both . they have talent..

    Syesha did really good, but let’s face it.. she doesn’t have much hype .. she’s not the one people talk about

    Jason.. As talented as the guy is .. He’s boring.. He seems to do the same stuff each week. sit on a chair .. sing a slow song.. either with his guitar or without?? disagree?? watch his performances. they’re all very similar. I think he would make an incredible acoustic artist. But i don’t think he’ll become the next American Idol.

    Brooke.. Wow … I really liked her because i felt she had her own style of music and her voice was very recognizable and unique.. BUT omgsh tonight she did horrible! She had great emotions .. But she was way off .. and considering she was in the bottom last week i think she might be in trouble again.. As emotional as the performance may have been and as hard as it would’ve been for her to sing the song.. She cracked and let it get to her ..

    David A.. Anyone who says he’s not as talented needs to seriously get their ears checked.. He’s the real deal .. adorable, great vocals, and yeah he may sing ballads all the time.. But that’s what show cases his voice a lot .. To sum up .. He’ll be in the top 2 .. someone save this comment .. cuz you know I’m right.

    Carly.. incredible voice! Probably the best vocals in the competition.. BUT with that said i don’t think many people pay attention to her .. It seems like everyones labeled at this point .. *David A: adorable, pop one.. David C: rocker. blues. jason: accoustic mellow guy* .. But i don’t think Carly has found her identity yet.

    lastly

    David freaking Cook: I wasn’t a fan in the beginning cuz i like Michael and David A .. then Michael went home.. And i started to really really like him! .. His performance tonight in my opinion was the BEST!.. the guy can sing .. I think he really is the whole package.. He’s a musician, ya know he can play the guitar, great vocals, recognizable voice, has his won vibe! ..To again sum up .. he’s amazing no doubt about it..

    Honestly i feel like the competition at this point is just between the Davids.. They’ll definitely be in the top 2 .. Sure of it .. Unless people don’t vote for them cuz they know they’ll be safe..

    soo that’s what i have to say .. my opinions.. don’t hate

  • Amy

    I think Cook was boring tonight. He did the song as its done on Broadway instead of spicing it up.

  • lauren

    Quit hating on David A.!

    I love you David!!

  • Suzie

    I also realized just how much I missed Michael Johns tonight:(
    I wonder what he would have performed!

  • kay

    the brooke performance was painful.. i stopped watching after she stopped and started again. i like her a lot but this is the SECOND TIME. that ish does not cut it in the real world. SO unprofessional

    i am so bored of all the rest of them. i don’t even care anymore. blah blah

  • angeline

    HATE TO SAY I TOLD YOU SO BUT BROOKE STINKS..SHE’S THE NEXT TO GO :( THAT PERFORMANCE WAS SO PAINFUL TO WATCH………OUCH

  • OMG

    David Cook was pretty awesome tonight!!

    But anyways I really don’t get David A. I mean I know he has a good voice and everything but he just doesn’t seem like an idol to me. He’s still here mostly because of all the teenage girls who have cellphones and are obsessed with his cute little face. I mean let’s face it if David A. didn’t have an as good cute looking face, but still had that voice, I don’t think he would still be here just because of the voice. Really people!?! Come on?!! David A. has to go home….he’s BORING!

  • http://JJ.COM Blip

    THIS IS HOW I RATE TONIGHTS PERFORMANCES:

    1 DAVID COOK .. HE ROCKS

    2 CARLY .. EVEN THOUGH I’M NOT A BIG FAN .. I LIKED HER PERFORMANCE

    3 DAVID ARCHULETA .. HE CAN SING BUT REALLY NEEDS TO LET GO.. TOO CONSERVATIVE

    4 SYESHA .. SHE FINALLY GOT RID OF THAT 1980′S AFRO..

    5 JASON .. THAT PERFORMANCE WAS ALMOST AS PAINFUL TO WATCH AS BROOKES

    6 BROOKE ..OUCH MY EARS AND MY EYES.. BYE BYE BROOKE :(

  • cami

    totally disagree OMG.. david is in the competition because he’s got an amazing voice! .. Is he adorable and cute.. yes.. but if he wasn’t i would still like him..i don’t like him because of his face.. i like him because of his talent.. he may sing slow songs every week which may give people the impression that he’s boring.. But it’s what you take of that performance is what makes it meaningful.. People like him because he has a great voice not just because of his face..

  • isabella

    David Cook….. David Cook….. David Cook…..

    he’s the most talented no doubt about that.

    Brook keeps messing up, Syesha has a strong voice but goes off key, strains, and is not that interesting. In other words, I don’t feel any emotion in any song she sings…. which makes it seem FLAT.

    Jason, is boring… sings Safe songs each and every week. Where’s his range????

    Carly has a tremendous voice but I feel the same about her… FLAT LINE… where’s the heart? The emotion, the feeling? It’s what makes David Cook great and stand out from the crowd… when he sings it’s all HEART. David A too, but Cook so much more.

    I LOVE ELTON JOHN!!! YOU KNOW THAT’S WHO DAVID COOK KINDA REMINDS ME OF!!!

    ELTON JOHN IS A LEGEND. :)

  • tia

    David Archuleta was AMAZING!! david cook is soo overrated! and jason is sooooooooo hot i hope he stays!!

  • ugh

    From what I hear, the Archuleta family is beyond creepy. Can’t stand Brooke – why can’t she just admit she’s Mormon instead of saying it’s just some “guidelines” that her parents set? Honestly… Jason Castro makes me want to puke just looking at him. David Cook kind of makes me want to go take a shower because he looks like he needs one. Carly… Well, any chick with tattoos is gross. I think Syesha is the best of the worst.

  • IDEALaLLIGATOR

    I find it funny that people say David A is “adorable.” Youth is usually adorable, but take a good look at that face and add a few years. Unless he gets some work done, he will most definitely NOT be considered very attractive.

  • at

    lmao at comment #46

  • Long live Brooke

    Hell no, Brooke NEEDS to stay. That was great tv and one of the most uncomfortable performances in AI history. The best of the worst by far. Brooke is becoming more unhinged every week. The show would be boring without her.

  • M

    It really bothers me how some people think that the only ones who like David A are teenyboppers. I am most definately not a teenybopper and I am a fan of him. Every one in my family is voting for david A. Even my boyfriend who is like the anti-teenybopper is voting for him. His voice has a unique feel about it and he is talented beyond his years. He seams like a very strong person and takes all the critisism with a smile. And he doesn’t come off as cocky like david c sometimes does. And for the record I dnt even think david a is all that cute, I’m strictly going by how I hear him sing each week.
