    I was distracted by a phone call right near the end of the show...was I correct in hearing that next week it's Queen songs? That should really be interesting (and maybe a bit painful!)

    Why do they pick these horrible categories? It's like they're setting them up to suck!!!

    Jen,
    Maybe they are trying to see who would be the best to lead their band?!?

    I think they already have a new guy. I heard it on the radio I think. I also think I was wrong when I said that Queen was going to be the next Rock Star band. Not positive, but I think they have a new lead singer.

    I was surprised that Mandessa was sent home. She does have a great voice.

    what did you all think about the Queen show last night? Who do you think did well? Who sucked?

    Surprisingly Kellie did good with a hard song.
    Does any one ever watch Ace anymore?
    Everyone seams to like Eliot a lot..... still can't stand him!
    Paris did well...... I don't know if Simon liked her song or not they cut off his comment with a wrap up music.
    Taylor was awsome!
    Miss Jiggles (aka: Kathleen) ---- well thats why I think Simon likes her, everything sounds the same but as long as the camera focuses on her chest she does what she does best.
    About Chris: lets face it, has any one read the fine print at the end of the credits, its producer's descression for who wins, no matter who gets the votes, and they really want to make up for the rocker not winning last year. Although he is pretty good, Last night I didn't think so and the flashy lights really took away from him anyway.

    Aball, I agree with some of what you said. Kelly was surprising, I didn't like Paris wouldn't be surprised to see her bottom 3. Ace needs to go home. Elliot I don't like either...boy did he have the eye liner on a little thick last nite!!!

    I did like Taylor & Katharine...It's not her fault that's where the camera focuses, but she can SING!!!

    Chris I'm indifferent on.

    Chris is still my fav, even if he sucks a few times. I think Taylor did really well. I missed the first half of the show:(. I had to take the boy to his first dentist apointment. To be honest, Elliot is kind of growing on me. He's not my fav, but I do think he is talented which I've said before. He did well.

    Ace and Bucky both need to leave!!! I am so tired of hearing both of them sing!!! La la la la... I'm glad I missed their songs last night because I think they both stink!

    I missed Kellie, but from what I heard at the end of the show it sounded pretty good. Although, I think she was trying to be too much like that girl who did it on Rock Star INXS...Suzie I think her name was. She did it better.

    ABAll I found this on the AI site....
    What's being done about power dialing?
    Production will have in place weekly monitoring procedures designed to prevent individuals from unfairly influencing the outcome of the voting by generating significant blocks of votes using technical enhancements. The producers reserve the right to remove any identified 'power dialing' votes

    I think that's a good thing, isn't it? I think people should only be allowed to vote once by entering the phone number from where they are calling from or your home phone number. Any other way seems too unfair.

    I don't vote either. I'm one of "those" too...watch religiously but don't vote. I'm aweful!

    Those repeat dialers are insane. I don't think it should be allowed. Who on Earth would go to that length besides a family member? I'm not THAT dedicated.

    He did soooo good. He didn't flinch one bit, kept his mouth open and even let the hygienist (sp?) polish his teeth and brush his teeth with flouride. He was a such a big boy and very proud of himself.:)

    My mom and dad vote every season, every week. They're not the crazy ones who have automatic dialers, but they vote...mostly my mom. The only bad thing is that they always want people I DON'T like. My dad liked the chicken little guy...UGH! The second after he got voted off I called my dad to laugh at him...he he! I think my mom likes Elliot and Katherine, from what I gathered.

    Last night I liked Taylor. And Chris was ok. Did not like the rest. But I don't like Queen either.
    And I forgot to vote oh well.
    I think Ace, Paris and Kathleen will be in the bottom three.
    I think it should be Ace, Paris and Elliot or Bucky.

    you guys need to meet my cousin's husband, then you would see why I can't stand Eliot!

    I figure it doesn't make a difference for me to try and vote, we are the last to see the swow (time zone) (Except Hawwii) I figure at the most in our area the lines are only open for an hour and they are probably tied up.

    You mean Katherine? I missed her performance last night. How did she do? I wouldn't be sad to see Paris go either, but I think she did ok last night.

    Bucky went home. Ace and Elliott were the others in the final 3. All of the bottom 3 sang their Queen songs last night.

    Oh it was Bucky. Last night when I flipped back to the Fox (was watching Lost) I saw Ace singing and was all excited. I thought that meant he was going home. SHOOT. Well maybe next week.

    They had all the bottom 3 sing before the show was over. I actually thought Ace didn't sound too bad last night. I missed the other night so I don't know if he stunk it up then or what. Elliot wasn't too bad either. He's kind of growing on me to be honest...maybe because he reminds me of a friend of mine who looks like him and has diabetes like him...who knows. I'm glad to see Bucky go. Seems like a nice fella, but gosh I was sick of hearing him sing!!!

    I was also glad it was Bucky, but to tell you the truth I thought it might have been Paris because I didn't think she did that well and Bucky's voice fit this week a little better.

    Next week should be interesting, especially for Chris...Taylor will probably do pretty well!!!

    Is it Rod Stewert? I think that's who they mentioned. Personally, I'm not liking these themes this season! I'm not a Barry Manilow fan, nor am I a Rod Stewert fan. I like Queen, but I'm not familiar with their tracks. Country...don't even want to go there. :rolleyes:

    Hey, I like some old country, and I like Faith Hill and a few others. But country in general, is not my genre!:) I can pick out certain artists or groups in every genre that I like, but country would have to be my least favorite...out of the "popular" genre's at least.
