    Same here. The guys are lightyears ahead of the girls in talent this season.

    Copied from some site:

    Next week, it will be the Rat Pack. Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin, you know, the 1950s. Also, former American Idol winner Taylor Hicks will stop by to bore, I mean sing to the millions watching at home. If you sleep through it or skip it, I'll understand.

    Sounds to me to be more interesting than Disco. And Taylor Hicks never bothered me, but he does seem kind of ordinary after watching Adam this season.

    Should be interesting week... I wonder what song Adam will "make his own"...this thought scares me...maybe I'll have to turn his portion off (sorry I just don't like how he takes some of the songs & destroys them aka Ring of Fire)!!!

    I love Taylor Hicks... we saw the AI concert tour that year & he was really fun to watch!!!

    I would expect Matt and Kris to do well with that theme.

    Zoe, I knew it. :p

    Kris just performed and was great! Of course Simon didn't like him.

    I requested a screen name change two months ago then changed my mind and they changed it this week!! So it's still me...Zoe...
    Anyway..What did you guys think of Allison tonight?

    How in the heck is Adam going to pull off tonight?
    Hmmm...

    Kris was great!
    Allison OK
    Matt boring! I think he'll go!
    Danny pretty good, I really liked his voice tonight! The best so far!
    Adam...well I think he has an amazing voice but I really didn' t like it all that much!

    I thought they were singing twice tonight...I don't know what I was thinking!

    Well, Allison sang one of my favorite songs and I didn't really like the arrangement. I couldn't even sing along with her and I love that song. Adam still opened his mouth a little too wide for my taste :eek: :lol:

    Danny was my favorite, then Kris, then Matt. I'm tired of Adam - he always does the same kind of thing.

    That's how I felt about Allison's performance too. I also adore the song Adam sang, but I wasn't wild about his theatrical/dramatic performance. His mouth is open too wide... He's all :eek: and :woot: and :rofl: . Dude, what's wrong with plain old :eek:hmy: ?

    :p

    I think at this point they do a bottom two. My prediction that Allison is going home tomorrow still stands, but I think either Matt or Kris will be with her in the bottom.

    I agree with you, but I'd flip Matt (although I may be biased) & then Kris!!! I am tired of Adam as well. When he gets ready to do his "yell" I have to turn my head (he might just reach through the TV with that tongue...LOL)!!!!

    Adam is so predictable, the slow start, the build up, the YELL, the sultry eyes...I'm over him!

    I loooooved Kris tonight. So sweet, so innocent. Here are my picks, in order:

    Kris
    Danny
    Allison
    Adam
    Matt

    Ok for all of you who are not fans of Matt...what is it?!? For me, it's when he picks the songs he likes like the Coldplay & doesn't stick with the music that "suits" his voice.

    I dunno, I guess he just seems like a one-horse performer, and I don't like his horse! :lol:

    Kris is my favorite, I'd love it if he won. I think Adam will, though. I also think Allison will make it to the top 3. They always seem to keep a girl in there until then.

    I am a Matt fan, but I think he'll go tonight (though I'd rather it be Gokey!! I don't get why they love him so much.)

    I do think Adam will win. I also think the whole thing is rigged. No way do I believe that the callers are the only ones to say who goes and who stays. Do you notice that Adam is never first, he is always near the end. I guess I have to stop reading the American Idol message boards because they really do have me convinced that the voting is not honest!

    Oh yeah, there has always been producer manipulation. I've been thinking since the beginning they've been gunning for Gokey to win, but now I think Adam is TOO popular not to have him be in the finale. I wouldn't be surprised at all if Adam doesn't win, just because Gokey is more easily mold-able into the American Idol status (though maybe Kris will be the dark horse there). I also thought there would be an issue with Adam being openly gay (or, well, openly enough to be dressing in drag and making out with guys in photos/videos) and having the "American Idol" title. I hope that's not the case, though, because he really does deserve to win. Kris is still my favorite but I do think Adam is probably the most talented on that stage, even if I don't always actually *like* all of his performances.

    Yup, bottom 2 are Matt and Adam! Kris, Allison (bleh) and Danny are safe.

    I'm sad to see Matt go, though I knew it was coming. I was secretly hoping he'd outlast Allison and Danny.

    No way Adam was really in the bottom 2...they just wanted to make it dramatic.

    WE ARE BUMMED!!!! He was a fav in our house!!! I guess I'll concentrate one person now instead of 2!!! I'm glad Adam was in the bottom 2...I think he needed a little ego check!!!

    Sometimes our favorites can be in the bottom because people get overconfident with voting.

    I actually love Adam, especially the "screaming' some of you don't like. I love that he really works to change up his performance each and every week. I look forward to seeing what he does.

    I love Adam, too--he's fun to watch and "brings it" every week. I'd like to see him in it until the end but, in some ways, hope he doesn't win. He, like Daughtry, will likely be more successful without this "crown".

    I have no idea at this point who will win this show! It's maddening! I really like Adam but I can't see his records selling big. He's someone you'd go see live. I have a feeling it might be Kris or Danny who win. Allison is good but she doesn't have much versitality. (sp).
