    It is really bad! There are a few that are OK, but even if the good ones had been on in previous seasons, they would have been eliminated right away.

    So far, the iffy ok ones for me are Crystal, Didi, and Casey. I have been an Andrew fan since his Straight Up performance, but he just can't get "it" back! I want to like him...

    Blah-at least if the show is over after this season, I won't be sad!

    I don't know for sure, but I think the writing is on the wall-Simon is supposedly leaving, no more Paula, the no-talent...

    I only watched the first couple of shows after they got to Hollywood. Ugh. It's worse than karaoke.

    I like Crystal Bowersox (Or however you spell it)

    She is good.

    Although I think there is one person who should've been in the top 12 that wasn't. Lily or whatever, the blonde chick with an amazing voice. Instead, the horrendous Paige who brought us such ear breaking renditions of Smile and tonight's cringeworthy performance.

    I read that the show's been renewed for 3 more years...I just don't know how they're going to manage that, especially with Simon gone.

    Oh I'm into it this season-granted I'm usually listening to it in the background, rather than watching it. I agree there are definitely some people there who I can't believe are still there (ahem Andrew Garcia) but there are a couple of the girls in particular I like. Crystal is really talented, I like Siobhan and Katie-for being in High School-not too shabby. I like Casey and Aaron.

    I did have a serious problem with Miley Cyrus being their "expert" mentor :eek:. Was there no other singer available, I guess I should be thankful they weren't all singing her songs last night.

    Kinder...I thought the same thing about Milee as well.

    I thought that last nite's was pretty boring overall. A Crystal being the standout. I liked Siobhan, but I'm already "sick" of the high note...I can't help but think she's the girl version of Adam.
    I thought Aaron's performance was his best last nite...usually I find him out of tune. Paige's was HORRIBLE!!! It must have been hard to stand there & listen to the judge's comments. I thought Katie's was out of tune as well. I thought Big Mike did pretty good. I hate the comments like the ice cream thing. It's like they like the big bowl from a people (Siobhan), but not from others.

    I think there's a few that could be in trouble. Paige, Katie, Tim, & Andrew.

    Wow-last night was, in the judge's words, a train wreck. I LIKE American Idol, and usually hate elimination night because there are so many singers I don't want to go home, but this year there are way more singers I DO want to leave. It is torture listening to some of them (Paige, Tim, Andrew, Didi, Katie) and I like Sioban, but I don't need to hear her scream in every song--like Adam. It is OK once in a while, but enough is enough. It also annoys me when the singers say (after a horrrible performance) that they had fun. Is that the point of the show? For them to have fun or do the best job they can?

    That's what I think these singers are missing-they are on this show to become a singer-star. Not to do a little karaoke and be pretty good. I was shocked at the choices of songs last night. AI is not always so 'open' with the choices they give to the singers-any number 1 hit?? From any time period?? Holy crap! The judges kept saying-there are thousands of hit songs, and THIS is what you picked??? WHO is advising these kids?

    Kcjo... I really can't stand that the judges can disrespect all the choices, but not help them find something. I mean I would love to get paid gazillions of dollars to say That was Terrible!!! I mean really. Even recording musicians have some direction with their labels or producer or something (even though I may question some of that as well).

    I agree that they gave way too many yrs. They should've put restrictions like the past 20 yrs or someting. It scares me when they do do the 70s them!!! LOL!!!

    Oh I forgot to mention I did like Didi's I see that she was trying to branch out a little bit. I think she was right about being pigeoned holed. I think that is what is happening to Crystal (even though I think she's good at it) I think her genre is going to be a Janis Joplin-sk singer.

    The judges often frustrate me because they tell the singers to find what their style is and stick with it and if the singers stay with a consistant style, the judges tell them they need to change it up and try different things. Seems when they try different things, the judges don't like it. :dizzy:
