    I think when we get to the top three (Melinda, Blake, and Jordin I'm assuming) they are all fantastic so it will depend on their performances. I do think Melinda is too good for American Idol. She can go on and be fine. We'll I'm sure all of them are going to be fine without American Idol at this point. They are just all good!

    Emma35, Thanks for being worried for me finding out who got voted off, I wanted to know last year, but funny we were more into it this year and we just left the computer alone after I asked about Bon Jovi!

    Yes, I played that cassette so much in High school too MissFrizzle!
    I wasn't really into last nights performance from Bon Jovi, it didn't have any big guitar stuff or that rock n' roll feel.

    I think Melinda and Blake will be in the top two.

    My 6 yo. dd did see Bon Jovi last night, she must have some kind of super sonic ears because her bedroom is way at the end of the hall, and right before he started singing she came rambling down the hall
    "Mama, can I ask you a question"
    I knew what she would say so I told her to just sit down and watch quietly and she went strait back to bed when he finished.

    I think it will be Blake and Melinda for the final 2. Lakisha will be gone next week.

    Who knows... all I can think of is Constantine Maroulis and what a shocker that was... so, we just may be surprised.

    It seams that the final winner isn't really the winner over all, because they are so "locked" into doing what Idol tells them for the first year or so.

    OH MY! I TIVO my shows so sometimes I watch them late. Melinda was WORLDS above the rest in Bon Jovi week!

    I did like Blake's creativity. I admire his spirit and creative artist abilities. To be able to do something different without sounding completely off tune and stupid is amazing. He isn't in the same vocal range though. I can see his marketability.

    Ok, I'll say either Blake or Lakeisha will go tomorrow. Probably Lakeisha, even though she was better than Blake, he probably has more fans.

    Yep, I bet Lakisha is gone tomorrow! Blake wan't that good but like TBelle said, he has more fans! Jordan was great! I think the final 2 will be Blake and Jordan.

    I agree Emma... Blake and Melinda will be the final two. Tonight was alright... nothing great. I really liked Blake's second song.. I had never heard it before but I really liked it. Jordin's first song was great. Lakisha and Melinda are just too old and boring for me. AWESOME voices, but just not exciting performers.

    OOps I meant to say Blake and JORDIN... not Melinda. Between the two of them, I honestly do not know who I think will win. I think either of them would be great. No matter who wins it, both of them will do very well. They are very marketable. Lakisha and Melinda are not so much.

    I did not like Blake tonight and Lakisha was terrible. Even if Melinda sings ok, she has the personality of a wet dish rag. I think Lakisha will go tomorrow. I honestly don't know that Blake will be in the bottom 2 with her, though, even though he deserves it.

    My bet is Jordin and Melinda in the semis. The first round tonight was awful - except for Jordin. I'm fed up with the audience booing Simon every time he opens his mouth. And Paula - if she doesn't know what to comment on the singing, she just says that they look beautiful!! :rolleyes:

    So, I think that either Blake or Lakisha are done for tomorrow night.

    I'm with you, kabd54, Melinda and Jordin the final 2. Both phonomenal voices, but overall Jordin has the whole package--looks, personality, connection with the audience.

    There is something endearing about Melinda though. I can't help liking her personality. She comes across as someone who would be an awesome friend. Someone with great values. Of course, that's not what this competition is all about!

    In the long run, I think they'll both have successful careers in music!

    Randy said EXACTLY what I have been thinking all along about Blake...the beatbox thing gets OLD! I think he's really good, but he uses it WAY too much.

    I agree, Jen. I don't think Blake can win because of that. He has a certain charisma, but his voice is just not that great. I think it will be Jordin and Melinda - and Jordin will win. They all see big dollar signs when they see her.

    I loved Jordin's performance of Woman In Love.... she looked beautiful and sounded good. That's a really difficult song to sing. Simon needs his eyes and ears checked.

    Unfortunately my boy Blake is going home... but I still like him.

    Blake and Jordin deserve to be in the finals...melinda will get a contract no doubt, and i am over lakisha she is too much like fantasia. Give blake a break, he gets dumped on if he uses too much beatboxing but if he doesnt the judges tell him to add his style in. He can't win!

    Thank you for saying that about Jordin. I thought maybe I missed something. In my eyes, her second performance was the better of the two. She was stunning, she performed well and she had STAR written all over her!

    Blake can put his spin on songs without having to do the beatbox. He can change the rhythm and beat and so forth to make the song more modern.

    I must have been reading your mind because I meant Blake and Jordan too, not Blake and Melinda!

    Hey, I love Blake, but I just don't think he will make it, and that's unfortunate. I hope so , but I don't think so.

    I want Jordin as the next AI!!!

    I thought it would be Lakisha because of Blake's younger female fans. He just does not do it for me. He's got a cool talent in the beat boxing, but he can't sing. His singing is not good to me. I guess it's all in what you like though. I think it will be Jordin and Melinda in the end. They'll both get a contract no doubt. However, technically speaking, Melinda can sing SO much better than any of them in my opinion. Jordan has a beautiful voice, but it's not as good technically as Melindas. I don't know guys...I think Melinda deserves it.

    Melinda does have a great voice, but this is about having the whole package and I just don't think she has the stage presence that Jordin does.
