    I don't care for Allison at all. I'm betting on Adam and Danny in the finals. Danny sometimes is a better singer but Adam is a true artist. Tonight Danny was just okay though.

    I like his other hairstyle too but this one surprised me and that element of surprise (if done right) changes things up.

    I definitely think Scott, Megan and the Oil Rig guy will be going next.

    I think something weird is going to happen, a lot due to votefortheworst.com. Who do you think the judges will have to use their save for?

    Adam is very talented. That was a fantastic rendition. He always seems so profession (and yet, so strange).

    I couldn't watch Megan...It was so bad. And I just closed my eyes and listened to Scott. Horrible. Lil. Horrible.

    I've liked Adam the best every week.

    I fast forwarded through Megan (I dvr-ed it). I loved Adam's performance, and usually I don't like him. I also have a soft spot for Allison.

    I was listening while at the computer and the tv was on in the other room. Many of them sound worse when you aren't looking at them. Scott and Megan sounded bad to me. The guy who went first sounded really good, actually. So did Adam, Danny and Allison. I can't believe how great Allison is for 16!

    Megan was still trying to get that little twist in.

    Adam blew me away last night! Danny was pretty good; he's still one of my favourites.

    My vote is for Adam but I'm not so sure he will win the whole thing. I like the guy who went first, also. Oil rig is going to get the boot.

    I you-tubed him and saw pics from high school....VERY different! All-american blonde hair, blue-eyed boy, lol.

    Kris was still my favorite! I do agree that Adam is very good but I'm more likely to buy Kris' album than Adam's.

    I'm the opposite--I'd be more likely to buy Adam's. (That's right, the almost 50, dowdy one really likes alternative music!). I was really surprised by his look last night and liked it a lot; I kind of like his usual look, though.

    I like his new look! I'm sure he will go back to his old look next week.

    Kris has surprised me....he wasn't an early favorite of mine, but I am liking him more every week.

    Danny is still my pick for the winner.

    I hope Michael goes this week, I don't even know how he made it into the top 13 to begin with.....

    I don't think Megan will go this week, because Simon predicted that she would have a hard time this week---I think he did that on purpose to make people vote for her. Even though she does badly, he's always liked her unique sound. I think he said that so that America would vote to keep her around (most people do the opposite of what he says and I think he knows that.)

    Matt G (the first one) was really good last nite. For the first time I didn't mind Adam. TeacherNY...I'm with you liked the new look, but it will be interesting to see next week.

    I think Megan will go this week. At first, I thought her voice was different and alittle quirky, but lately it isn't quirky--it's off-key. And sometimes it sounds like she is just saying the lyrics, not really singing. I don't know how to describe it. Michael can go anytime and he annoys me when he argues with the judges. Lil and Scott are good singers, but they did hit some klinkers last night-ouch. Allison has an outstanding voice, but for some reason, her face bothers me-I'm not trying to be mean and I am sure MY face bothers a whole LOT of people, but I just can't put my finger on it. I thought Adam looked great, but I am sure it is just temporary to show he can look and sing other ways if he needs to. I have the feeling Danny might win because he has more all around appeal than Adam. Anoop, Kris and Matt are all in it and are getting better each week ,so who knows?

    I loved Adam's song last night. I HATED his ring of fire last week, ruined a classic. He has a great voice. He looked alittle like Elvis. I like his punk look too!

    I really hoped Scott was leaving tonight! Now I'm hoping it will finally be oil rig guy to go. He's taken up too much time. Matt G. does not deserve to go home. He looks like he's going to cry any moment. Awww.....I have my fingers crossed.

    I loved Matt G. last night. He has such a sweet smile, too. I have a feeling Danny is going to make it to the end - and maybe win it. Peggy, I was thinking Adam looked a bit like Elvis, too.

    I haven't seen tonight's show yet. Am getting ready to, though.

    No...Adam looked like a young Kurt Russell with dark hair last night.
    I am SOOOO glad Michael is finally gone. Scott had better go home next week. Enough already! Let's get serious with this show. LOL

    Sooooo--Michael got the ax!! I missed tonight's episode, but after reading Zoe's post I am all caught up! Yes, it was time for him to go. Next to go--Megan and Scott.

    Megan should have gone instead of Michael but she should be next. It was crazy what Simon said about the advice she got. Didn't he realize that Smokey told Megan to sing it her way and she'll be fine. Scott should be after her. Adam was IT, with his change of looks & the screaming by lil was not IT. The 16 year old girl showed her how it should be done.:D

    Megan should go next, then the blind guy (sorry!)! This is going to sound bad (don't mean it that way), but do you think people are just voting for him out of sympathy or do you think he's really that good?

    I think he is good but he has become too predictable and boring.

    Yes, Scott is becoming boring. Meghan is so bad I just leave the room when she starts singing. I still think a guy is going to win.

    Scott seems like such a nice guy and he has overcome so much adversity, which is why I feel so guilty saying his turn to go is just around the corner, but we all know he is not going to win. After all, he is on the tour and that is a good thing! Hopefully, he will last one week longer than Megan!

    I wonder how many of Megan's votes are Vote For the Worst votes...

    I wonder if all of us who don't vote actually voted if anything would happen!

    Kris is from my city. It is kind of neat to hear them say our town on TV. My co worker knows him well and said he is a super nice person. He sang at her sister's wedding.
