    Remember, Fantasia and Ruben didn't fit the stereotype either.

    What has Fantasia been up to anyway? I don't listen to Top 40 so I wouldn't know if she has a hit or not. But has she had any success outside of Idol? This is actually my first year watching Idol so far into the show. In the past I stop watching after the Hollywood cuts.

    Fantasia hasn't had any success at all, but then again, neither has Ruben. He had one song in 2004 (which stunk!) and I haven't heard anything about him since.

    I was glad to see Paris go, and thought she should have gone weeks ago.

    I was worried Paris would actually win, her singing is really good I think. But I told my husband before the show started last night that if Paris gets booted off I'm going to throw a big party this weekend.

    No, For one thing everyone I know loved Paris, and they would not appreciate a party celebrating her dismissal. Plus my house is a mess with getting ready for a big moving sale.

    I'd party w/ya!!!

    What bugged me about her besides her speaking voice was that her grandma was somehow in the music biz...doesn't she have connections...Randy sure gave her a big hug!!!

    That's the biggest reason I didn't like her. She surely has connections. Her grandmother was a multi-Grammy winner.

    I'm excited for tonight's show, but I'm sorried that Elliot will go home. I don't really think he'll win, but I love his voice & he seems really sincere. Anyone know what the theme is?

    I'm hoping Katherine's 2nd song is better. I really wasn't blown away by Chris or Elliot (waiting for his 2nd song). Taylor singing "Ghetto" was amazing. That is my all time favorite Elvis song and he did really well.

    I know it happens sometimes, but I was a bit disappointed that Katherine forgot her lyrics...can you say Melissa? I wonder if that will hurt her votes. I think they all did pretty well. I think Elliot did great and I hope he doesn't go home. As much as I hate to say it, I wouldn't be too hurt if Taylor went home. Or Katherine because she forgot the lyrics. I still like all of who are left, but someone has to go.

    I was watching something last nite and they asked Simon to pick the expected winner.. he said Chris... I was pretty happy. I went to Taylor's site and downloades some of his songs with his band.. I really think he will do well wheteher or not he wins.

    My favorite is definetly Chris..actually, I have become quite the stalker! ;) My husband thinks I'm nuts, but I love him! I also like everyone who is left..although this year doesn't seem to WOW me as much as the past years..I mean eh hem...except for Chris. :)
    My guess is that Katherine will go home. We'll see...

    I am the other way around. Chris has always been my fav, but Katherine was always my second until last night. She forgot the words...not cool in a competition like this. You have to be on the ball and nothing less. She is still very talented though. I think she'll get a recording contract regardless if she wins or not. Her voice is very effortless and she's almost always on key.

    Did anyone notice she forgot the words until Randy said something...not me....Real singers forget,but use the crowd to sing along. I didn't notice at all. I thought Chris lacked personality in the 2nd song expect for a little at the end and then he yelled in a Elvis song...I was shocked!!!

    I noticed...did anyone else? You could tell when she muffled her words as she was turning around. I just think in a contest like this you have to prove yourself every time. Someone who has been around the block and back has earned their right to forget.

    I agree about Chris's second song. He's still my fav, but his energy was missing until the end. It's like I was waiting for his song to get better.

    Paula is definitely not the brightest crayon in the box. I think the whole Cory "scandal" from the other season drove her wacky

    I think she's definitely on something. And I think you're right about Simon wanting to strangle her, katerina. His money is in this show, not hers. I wasn't impressed with Chris last night. I enjoyed Katharine's first song even though they seemed to pan it. I did not notice the problem with the lyrics until Randy mentioned it. Everyone is saying Taylor performed so well last night, but I wasn't feeling it, that's for sure.

    We noticed Katharine's mistake right away. I think she is going tonight, she didn't do that well last week. Maybe she is really feeling the pressure now.

    My son wants Chris to win, my daughter is voting for Elliot. They both want Katherine to go........she is way to screechy and tries too hard. I think she uses her body to compensate for her voice.;)

    I have been a Kellie fan, until she started acting just "too clueless", then I moved on to Chris (for obvious reasons) and I couldn't stand katherine until last night. I didn't even like the 2 songs she put together as her first song, but I thought she did so great. My husband thinks Simon has the hots for her, but he didn't seem to enjoy her performance last night. I don't care who wins...as long as it's not Paris and thank goodness she's gone...though I did hear her say somewhere that she will be working on a album.

    Does anyone else like Simon? I used to despise him because he was always telling skinny girls that they need to lose weight. I notice he doesn't do that anymore. I like Simon and respect his opinion. What are your opinions of him?

    I think he says it like it is.. he's a good businessman that's for sure.. he's hardest on those he feels has potential.. and this is wise since he technically works for BMG

    Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh wwwwwwwwwwwwwwooooooooooooowwwwwwwwww.
    Thank you for posting! I got hung up in Lost and just realized the time. I knew he didn't do as well as he could have last night and Elliot blew everyone away with his second song.
    I have no doubt Chris will end up with a record deal, though.
