    I don't remember names but my faves are for the ladies the heavy girl that Simon apologized to (she went first), and...I think his name is Taylor Hicks (gray haired guy that went last).

    OH I loved the rocker with the dreamy eyes, he sang I will be your......I was too busy looking at him instead of listening. Loved the song, can't think of the title. What do you think of the 16 year old with the glasses and slight lisp? He may not make it all the way through, but what a voice for a small guy.

    The rocker guy...Ace I think his name is, is a real cutie! I think I have a crush!:love:
    The 16 year old probably won't make it too far, but he does have a nice voice.

    Ace! That is it! I know at my age I shouldn't drool, but what the heck! I hope he makes it.

    Ok lets see the ones that I liked last night are:
    Taylor Hicks (he really seems to know his stuff, and it seemed more like his own, then coping something already done)
    Gedeon Mckinney (just liked the sound of him)
    Chris Daughtry
    David RadFord

    Did not like: the webble-wobble guy (bobby)

    For girls didn't really like any of them except Melissa McGhee

    I want to hear him sing something else. It sounds like he's probably got potential, but the song he sang last night wasn't the best. He sounded too raspy...I want to hear him sing a country ballad or something.

    for the girls I don't like the girl that poses (and shakes and slaps her butt) and for the guys, I didn't care for the latin (?) guy that sang near last and the guy in the white hat. I also don't see the youngest guy going far, he needs a few years.

    the ones I do like are the young black girl with the feathery hair, and the larger black lady that sang first and the younger girls with the really curly hair.
    The guys: I like ace, loved the song he sang, and the bald guy did good, I love the gray haired guy and thought the guy that looked like buckweat that sang shout did really good he has good stage presence.

    I agree with Bucky, he needed a different song, if he can't do better with a different song, then I don't think he will go far.

    I didn't like him either. I thought he sounded terrible! The judges praised him, though so it must've sounded different live than it did on tv. I think he probably has a nice voice, but he was singing way out of his range and sounded soooo off-key!

    Ditto what ABall said and add Elliot? I think. The guy Simon said was the best male voice in all the years of AI.

    Oh he did, he is cute and has a great voice, but he is just 16 and looks so young. Bobby is the other 16 year old. I loved the bald guy also, can't think of his name. There are too many of the girls I like, do like Kellie, is she the one whose Dad is in prison?

    I awalked into the room in the middle of his falsetto. I thought that the judges would lay him open. I couldn't beleive that they loved it. (He was "Sway". ) Chris was really good, too. I can't put all the girls' faces to their song so I'm sticking with Mandisa as my fave. I know I liked the last girl that sang, too. The little girl with the baby voice, she ANNOYS me to listen to her talk, but I have to admit that she sounded good when she sang.

    That's what I thought too. I was literally cringing while he was singing and told my boyfriend, "Oh, Simon is going to really lay into him." and then Paula gave him a standing ovation and they said he did really well. It sounded awful to me.

    That is so funny about comparing the kid to Harry Potter, my husband did say.... that kid looks like someone, I just can't put my finger on it. Maybe thats it.

    Hope you gals will post the people voted off, I will probably miss it, We like survivor better. oh and who lives on the east coast? I can get the results sooner if some one over there can tell us PM me so no one gets a surprize when they don't want it.

    no, not really. I figured Bobby would be gone. To me, Bucky was better than Patrick, but oh well.

    As for the girls. Stevie? She acted like she knew she was going. She seemed so down the whole show.

    Now I'm even more confused, maybe 'cuz I don't know their names yet. I was watching Survivor and flipping back and forth.

    Guys - heavy Cuban guy? Did he go? The other one was tall and thin, the one who also played piano.

    Gals - I only saw the sexpot twin go. Was the other one the opera singer?
