    I have no idea! I just find it easier not to listen to him. :lol: Most of the time when someone sings I think the total opposite of what the judges think. Sometimes I think someone just butchered the song and Simon says, "brilliant" (that's one of his words that is getting so annoying).

    I agree with ya... I'm glad the season is almost done because I am ready for Kara to keep her ideas to herself. I think she helped step up Paula's game, but man she would get so long winded.

    I agree 100%!!
    I can't stand Adam and his screeching. One main reason I never liked Guns and Roses-and he reminds me of them. He is the main reason I "flip" channels this year with AI, and I catch only glimpses. Could not stand one whole hour of the judges singing his praises. And he is so smug....

    I am so glad Danny went home. I love Adam and his bad boy image. I am a rocker at heart. But I also love Kris. He is so babyfaced. Either one of them will sell records.

    i do like Adam, but don't understand that he feels it is necessary to scream in EVERY song he sings. I think his ballads (few and far between) are better than the screamers. I think that Kris will will because all of the "Danny voters" will most likely transfer to Kris. I do like Kris, but not sure if he is really an "American Idol". These 3 guys are outstanding singers, each in his own right, but I also think they are each a one-trick pony. Not alot of difference in their s don't mean between Kris, Danny and Adam, but each ones individual songs. Just my opinion.

    Please excuse all the typos-for some reason part of an entire sentence was missing! And I meant "will win", not "will will"!

    Adam sang "Mad World"--I think that's my favourite of his from this season--and he rocked it! Should be a fun evening!

    Too bad TeacherNY because so far tonight is a lot better than I thought it would be.

    I loved when Adam sang it the first time. I have watched it many times at the American Idol site. I just don't think tonight's was quite as good as the first time he sang it.

    I disliked the song Cara helped to write. Boring! I think Simon thought it was also. He came very close to insulting Cara.

    Both of them were good tonight as long as they weren't singing her song. Kris surprises me. It's like he came out of nowhere and came on strong.

    Things I noticed as I watched:

    a. Randy looked like a fool. Nice dork suit, dog. He looked like great Uncle Lester come for a visit. I kept waiting for him to ask Kara to sit on his lap. And he says the same thing every time.

    b. I have a closet crush on Simon Cowell. Something about his arrogance is just...mmm...

    c. I really wish my husband could sing and play instruments. Yes, I'm slightly jealous of Kris's wife. I love me a singer.

    d. It should be illegal to run a show over by 10 minutes. Not fair. Some of us have golfing to do. I'll watch your show, but on my own time, and if you keep doing that to me, I'll stop. Ok, probably not, but I'll threaten.

    OK, I've got more:

    e. Was Kris picking his undies after his Kara song? Just wondering...

    f. Speaking of Kara's song...yeah. Exactly the kind of sappy crap I would expect to hear on Kids Bop. And so totally wrong for both of them, although out of the two, I think Kris fit it better.

    g. Who won? Ummm...I'm gonna go out on a limb and say Kris, mostly because of what someone already said about Danny's voters going to Kris. Plus, if Shawn Johnson can come from behind and win DWTS, so can everyone's favorite golly gee underdog Kris.

    I agree kcjo13, Kara's song was pathetic. If I was her, I would have hidden under the table when it was announced that I co-wrote that junk.

    I also agree that Kris will win. Danny's voters will go to him, and I think there's a lot of "Adam-haters" out there. (myself included!) where there's not so many Kris-haters. ...most people are impressed with his "dark horse" rise to the top....

    I watched for a few minutes here and there and listened from the next room but I'm sure I missed some good moments because I heard Simon say some nice things! I was thinking they must have been really good for that!

    Aarrgg-my wonderful Granddaughter, who is in the Navy, came in town for a visit and got to our house at 7:55 last night and stayed until about 9:10. The TV was on, turned down very quiet and even though I tried to pay attention to the conversation, I was spending most of my sneaking peeks at the TV and straining to hear anything. My poor granddaughter-she thought I was losing it, but I have been watching all season to get to last night!!

    I missed it due to grocery shopping, but hubby taped it! That last song was NOTHING to write home about. If one of the previous posters is right about ADAM haters, then that is just not right. :(ANYWAY, AMERICA HAS VOTED and I HOPE the CALIFORNIANS did their THING! There are a LOT MORE PEOPLE IN CA than ARK. I hope they all felt ;)ADAMazed enough to vote, just for the sake of...
    "CA got the AMERICAN IDOL for 2009!" :D
    Go ADAM!:cool:
