    I agree. What does her being sick have to do with that stupid dance she does all the time? It's annoying. SHE is annoying.

    TRUE that! She can get pity votes for mentioning it. Are all the people with TATTOOS voting for her??? (Just kidding!) I have a tattoo BUT I'm not voting for her. I still haven't voted for any American Idol yet. It's what's on tv that is different from all the SOS, so we watch it. I still like Adam and he's a fun and different contestant. He makes the AI show exciting AND UNPREDICTABLE. He's good & crazy :cool:entertainment! Danny has the BEST VOICE out of all of them according to hubby; and I think he might be right. Is he the one whose wife died? I know that can get him some votes. Scott with his sight almost gone, can get him votes too. IT'S the PITY CARD and it will affect a lot of the voters' decisions; even if they aren't the best singers.
    This is America & anything is POSSIBLE,:D

    I have voted twice, and both times were the from the year Taylor Hicks won. My votes proved to be the vote of death as both of them were voted off that next evening (Chris Daughtry and Elliot Yamin the following week). I vowed never to vote again after that. :p

    I think Johnny Cash was rolling in his grave when Adam butchered his song. Not cool. I love Martina McBride and HATED Lil Rounds' butchering of "Independence Day." Can't say I was all that fond of Scott's "Wild Angels" either.

    My predictions:
    Top five contestants are Danny, Matt, Lil, Alison, and Anoop. Top three contestants are Danny, Matt, Lil. The finale will be between Matt and Danny, with Danny winning it all.

    Alison is going to win. I think the show is totally rigged and they put Alison in the bottom three last week to freak us out! BTW...this is the first year I really think it is already planned out. Something wierd about Scott, Michael, and Anoop being in the top ten. Too many good singers with real talent were sent home before the top 13 were chosen. The cast they left us with makes for an interesting show with lots of room for discussion. I think the winner has already been chosen. Afterall, do we even know who tallies all these "votes"? The number of total votes is always so over the top. I'm waiting for them to say something crazy like, "With ten billion votes...here he/she is!" LOL!

    I don't think Allison is that great. I'm not too fond of her kool-aid colored hair either. I think one of the guys should win.

    I totally agree with this. I think the guys are a lot more talented than the girls this season.

    I don't care for Allison and her hair, either. Danny will win. (I certainly hope!)

    I agree that I seem to be the only person I've spoken to who thinks Allison is great. Even at work, no one seems to think so. Am I deaf? I really think she's fabulous or are people not liking her because she's just another harder core version or Kelly Clarkson (with red hair)? She does kind of sound like her.
    I'm also not understanding how people think Michael is a good singer. I'm sorry. I'm so confused. :eek:hmy:

    I don't think Allison is a BAD singer but I don't think she should win (unless she does something really amazing that we havn't seen so far). I don't like her "look" and she gives the impression that she's been around the block a few too many times. She's only 16. I don't know if I'm the only one who thinks that a 16 year old can ACT her age and still be a good performer.

    Just wanted to let all Alexis fans know that she is on the Ellen show today(MON). I am not sure the times becuase her show differs in diff places as to the air time. I belive you can get a replay on Ellen's website though.

    You still can't beat the year of Carrie Underwood that was the best season with so many great singers!!

    :) Now we'll just have to see how everything plays out. There is always that one contestant that just leaves you SHOCKED he/she is still in. Last year, for me, it was Jason Castro.

    Carrie Underwood remains my favorite AI winner.

    I was shocked also that Jason was still in it as long as he was last yr and Carrie was one of my favortie winners.

    I always look forward to watching it on Tuesdays and Wednesdays too. Makes the week flow faster. I might watch the president just to be ready for lunch time talk tomorrow. I faked watching the superbowl! lol

    No, it was on. At least on ABC, I didn't even try to change over to Fox to see if they carried it, I just assumed they did.

    That is weird seeing as on last weeks show Ryan said and I quote " next weeks shows are being moved to Wed and Thursday due the president making a speech". He said they would sing on Wed night and the voting off would be Thursday. I also was fliping through my tv trying to find something and the president was on just about ever channel including abc. What you saw could of been a show called American Idol Rewind. That show goes back to capture old American Idol momments.

    I think they moved Idol to tonight because they figured they'd lose viewers since the president was on the other channels. Guess they had no idea so many of us would choose Idol over the president speaking. Don't they know WE ARE a shallow bunch? LOLl! (Sorry...I'm actually just speaking for me but if you agree, --hey hey.)

    I didn't mean AI was on, I was responding to someone else who asked if the president was on...yes, he was.

    WOW! Adam did a great job! And he looked normal! I like the clean look!

    Matt Geraud did a good job opening the show, but nobody thrilled me after him except Adam.

    Danny's up next!!

    I usually like Danny but tonight he was just OK. Maybe because he was right after Adam's performance which was just great! And he does look really good with his look tonight.

    Agreed! Danny sounded goog, but he wasn't as good as Adam tonight. Hey--does Danny wear a different pair of glasses every week? Sure seems like it!

    I think Adam is the winner tonight--in song and LOOKS! Call me old-fashioned, but I hate it when he wears nail polish.

    OOPs--I guess Allison still has to sing, but I don't think she will be any competition for Adam.

    Allison was fantastic!
    I've said all along that Allison and Adam are the best. I really still believe that. My prediction is that they will be the last two standing.

    I'm not sure about that prediction--although I think Adam will be one of the finalists.

    Who will be cut tomorrow night? I'm just not sure--possibly Scott or Megan.

    I think Adam and Allison will go far. If I had to predict who is going to win I do think it may be Adam. I think he is very marketable and that is what AI needs. And by the way, I have said this in previous seasons, I think the voting is rigged, I honestly do not think it is the call in vote that counts at the end of each night. Also everyone at work disagrees with me about that:D
