    I still haven't been able to watch his performance that was supposed to be his BEST one, due to a resume workshop I "had" to attend. I think it was something about the world. It was the one that everyone had trouble with their recordings that got cut off because of time. Someone gave me the ?TUBE thingy to get it from BUT I had no luck.:( Me too! He's the reason why I watch the show. Hubby thinks he's just hillarious and I think he's GREAT ENTERTAINMENT and he CAN SING!:cool:
    What is the theme for next week?

    It's judges' choice and (I think) the song of the performers choice.

    If you go to the American Idol website you can watch all of the videos. It didnt' record for me on Tuesday, so I went on there to watch all of them! Just click on contestants, and then the person you want to listen to.

    So far no one has impressed me. I guess I just don't like the songs tonight.

    Aww... I loved Kris singing "Apologize"!! There were a couple of, as Paula put it, "bum notes", but I still melted into a happy puddle of lilmisses. I totally disagreed with Kara when she told him he should have played the guitar for that song.

    I wasn't impressed with Danny's first song.

    I think Danny will be gone. Overall Kris was much better. And of course Adam will make it.

    NOPE!
    I think it's going to be ADAM :))YEA!) and Danny.
    All their 2nd songs were pretty good, BUT of course both of Adam's were very good.:D

    Kris was my favorite last night (okay, no surprise there). I'd love for him to be in the finale but they obviously don't want him there. I actually wouldn't mind a Kris/Gokey finale (and I despise Gokey!) just because then it might actually be a competition. We know Adam will beat whoever he's up against and it's so anticlimactic.

    I'm sorry for all of you Adam fans fo what I have to say...I'm tired of his predictablity & the screeching he does, I just don't enjoy him. Yes I think he's talented, but I could NEVER imagine myself sitting down listening to a cd with that on there.

    The only song I liked of his was Tracks of my Tears...NO SCREAMING in that one. I really did enjoy his voice like that.

    I did like Kris & Danny's 2nd song. I do think Simon was right that Kara & Randy should have "directed" Kris more. I did not like him sitting at the piano like that for what could be one of his final performances...he's always been up towards the crowd & "getting them involved." So this to me seemed distant.

    I didn't see anything but the clips of Gokey. He's been 2nd behind Matt for me (I just enjoy their voices). But the 2nd song was not too bad. I don't like him singing in the "softer" tones of his voice it sounds weird, but overall not too bad.

    It should be interesting tonite.

    Ok out of my judges chair...

    Diznee, I totally agree with this. Honestly, it sounds like I'm listening to the same friggin' song with all of the yelling and screeching and crazy faces. He has a hell of a range and can hit some impressive notes at full voice (does that make sense?), but he does it all the time with most everything he sings. :yawn:

    I didn't like Danny's first song. The second was "meh." I do hope that the finale is between Danny and Kris.

    I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one that is tired of Adam's shrieking. I did not like either of his performances last night and have grown tired of the way the judges are cramming him down the audiences throats.

    I thought the second song that Kris sang was incredible! It was the best performance of the night. Although, I love "Apologize" by One Republic, I wish Kris had done something to it to make it his own. It sounded too much like the original.

    Danny has an amazing voice, but I have yet to really be wowed by him. I had such high hopes from his first audition, but it just hasn't worked for me ever since.

    Also sick of Adam. I worry he is going to break the glass on my house when I listen to him :lol:
    I hope he doesn't win. I never thought Kris would make it that far. He now has my vote (any one but Adam has my vote!)

    Done with Adam. I just wouldn't buy his stuff. One song is "wow", but 12 on a disc? Annoying! He belongs on Broadway-you go in, watch him perform, have the "wow" factor, then leave. And don't listen to him again.

    Kris-I could buy it, I guess. Not more than 1 download from iTunes though. Very mellow-I could see him coming out with some fantastic love song that all the girls will swoon over.

    Danny missed his opportunity-he needed some big song with a choir as backup. He could have brought down the house-better luck next ti...oops, never mind...

    Wow... I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who would have been happy to see Adam go.

    I wish Danny would have stayed last nite. Oh well... I don't know if he'll have to be with the Idol record deal or not...but will probably do better on his own.

    I don't mind Kris' voice, but it's pretty plain jane. As much as I don't like watching Adam & his snake like tongue when he sings & don't like the faces that Kris makes either.

    Oh well should be interesting next week. I really hope it is a "ding dong" like Simon said.... I'll vote for Kris next week.

    LOL ding dong? I must have missed that. I usually don't pay attention to his annoying accent and dumb comments.

    I have no idea! I just find it easier not to listen to him. :lol: Most of the time when someone sings I think the total opposite of what the judges think. Sometimes I think someone just butchered the song and Simon says, "brilliant" (that's one of his words that is getting so annoying).

    I agree with ya... I'm glad the season is almost done because I am ready for Kara to keep her ideas to herself. I think she helped step up Paula's game, but man she would get so long winded.

    I agree 100%!!
    I can't stand Adam and his screeching. One main reason I never liked Guns and Roses-and he reminds me of them. He is the main reason I "flip" channels this year with AI, and I catch only glimpses. Could not stand one whole hour of the judges singing his praises. And he is so smug....

    I am so glad Danny went home. I love Adam and his bad boy image. I am a rocker at heart. But I also love Kris. He is so babyfaced. Either one of them will sell records.

    i do like Adam, but don't understand that he feels it is necessary to scream in EVERY song he sings. I think his ballads (few and far between) are better than the screamers. I think that Kris will will because all of the "Danny voters" will most likely transfer to Kris. I do like Kris, but not sure if he is really an "American Idol". These 3 guys are outstanding singers, each in his own right, but I also think they are each a one-trick pony. Not alot of difference in their s don't mean between Kris, Danny and Adam, but each ones individual songs. Just my opinion.

    Please excuse all the typos-for some reason part of an entire sentence was missing! And I meant "will win", not "will will"!

    Adam sang "Mad World"--I think that's my favourite of his from this season--and he rocked it! Should be a fun evening!

    I loved when Adam sang it the first time. I have watched it many times at the American Idol site. I just don't think tonight's was quite as good as the first time he sang it.

    I disliked the song Cara helped to write. Boring! I think Simon thought it was also. He came very close to insulting Cara.

    Both of them were good tonight as long as they weren't singing her song. Kris surprises me. It's like he came out of nowhere and came on strong.

    Things I noticed as I watched:

    a. Randy looked like a fool. Nice dork suit, dog. He looked like great Uncle Lester come for a visit. I kept waiting for him to ask Kara to sit on his lap. And he says the same thing every time.

    b. I have a closet crush on Simon Cowell. Something about his arrogance is just...mmm...

    c. I really wish my husband could sing and play instruments. Yes, I'm slightly jealous of Kris's wife. I love me a singer.

    d. It should be illegal to run a show over by 10 minutes. Not fair. Some of us have golfing to do. I'll watch your show, but on my own time, and if you keep doing that to me, I'll stop. Ok, probably not, but I'll threaten.

    OK, I've got more:

    e. Was Kris picking his undies after his Kara song? Just wondering...

    f. Speaking of Kara's song...yeah. Exactly the kind of sappy crap I would expect to hear on Kids Bop. And so totally wrong for both of them, although out of the two, I think Kris fit it better.

    g. Who won? Ummm...I'm gonna go out on a limb and say Kris, mostly because of what someone already said about Danny's voters going to Kris. Plus, if Shawn Johnson can come from behind and win DWTS, so can everyone's favorite golly gee underdog Kris.

    I agree kcjo13, Kara's song was pathetic. If I was her, I would have hidden under the table when it was announced that I co-wrote that junk.

    I also agree that Kris will win. Danny's voters will go to him, and I think there's a lot of "Adam-haters" out there. (myself included!) where there's not so many Kris-haters. ...most people are impressed with his "dark horse" rise to the top....

    I watched for a few minutes here and there and listened from the next room but I'm sure I missed some good moments because I heard Simon say some nice things! I was thinking they must have been really good for that!

    Aarrgg-my wonderful Granddaughter, who is in the Navy, came in town for a visit and got to our house at 7:55 last night and stayed until about 9:10. The TV was on, turned down very quiet and even though I tried to pay attention to the conversation, I was spending most of my sneaking peeks at the TV and straining to hear anything. My poor granddaughter-she thought I was losing it, but I have been watching all season to get to last night!!

    I missed it due to grocery shopping, but hubby taped it! That last song was NOTHING to write home about. If one of the previous posters is right about ADAM haters, then that is just not right. :(ANYWAY, AMERICA HAS VOTED and I HOPE the CALIFORNIANS did their THING! There are a LOT MORE PEOPLE IN CA than ARK. I hope they all felt ;)ADAMazed enough to vote, just for the sake of...
    "CA got the AMERICAN IDOL for 2009!" :D
    Go ADAM!:cool:
