    Who watched the show last night??

    I thought it was great. I thought every single one of them did at least one fantastic song! Scotty made me cry. I think he became emotional himself while singing. Lauren was awesome - what a voice! Haley has a voice that, in my opinion, could rival Maria or Celine, in time, and I have never said that before. And though I do not like James' genre I think he might be the most talented. Who to vote for??

    How are you all breaking it down?

    I think James might be the last one standing. Though Scotty's voice could melt butter (country also not my favorite genre, he has THE VOICE!).

    I'm so confused! Help me someone.

    I really like Scotty & Lauren as well...

    I think Haley gets a little screamy, but that may be me.

    Plus... I like county music...Although I don't really like how Scotty adds extra twang in his singing...he doesn't talk with much of a twang... Interesting because usually it's the other way, think of Keith Urban Australian accent but you don't really here it when he sings... Ahhh I love Keith Urban!!! LOL!!!

    Haley does need to back off on the screeching, I agree. I am just amazed by her powerful voice. She needs some training on control. She keeps screaming like that she will lose her voice. It is the power and how she can hold her notes so long that amazes me.

    To me there are 3 divas out there nobody has been able to touch:

    Barbra Streisand
    Celine Dion
    Mariah Carey

    Haley has great potential!

    My vote is for Lauren I think. That girl is so genuine, loveable, humble, thankful, and her voice is off the charts. I don't think she has really let loose yet though. But over all, she would have to get my vote. She is a real young lady, singing like an old soul.

    bonneb... I agree with ya about Lauren... she is young, so I'm sure she doesn't want to "mess up"!!!

    I heard Garth Brooks once say that no one has truly heard Trisha Yearwood's voice. He said he has a few times & it's amazing...

    I liked Scotty's first song. I did not like his 2nd song choice - I thought it was silly and I really didn't like Lauren's 2nd song choice- why in the world would she sing a song that doesn't reflect who she is/what she believes like her 1st song about praying. That was great!

    I also don't care for James' songs personally but think he's talented if you like rock. I don't care for Haley's style of songs.

    Overall I hope for Scotty or Haley but think it will be James out of music choice popularity.

    I really can't decide who will win. All four of them deserve a recording contract. I like James best of all. But he sang one of my favorite songs--Love Potion No. 9.

    Haley has been slowly growing on me, but lost quite a few points with her attitude with the judges last night. James is my hands-down favourite; for me, he's the complete package of talent and personality. We talk about him a lot at school--I'll bet he was one of those students who could make you want to pull your hair out and laugh hysterically at the same time. I'm curious about how Lauren is going to act tonight--she was too emotional last week during the elimination show. Not loving Scotty, but I think he may win.

    It does seem to me to be not so clear cut this year. I've watched a long time and have truly never seen sooooo much raw talent!
    what do you think?

    Weget the show several hours after y'all. I was pretty surprised. I thought overall James was the most talented, though not my personal taste. I think his appeal was not wide enough for the general population of America, but I do believe we have not heard the last of him!! I did so admire all he has overcome - he seems a good soul.

    So next week Haley has to go - it will come down to Scotty and Lauren. I thought Lauren and James would duel it out. I was truly a bit shocked tonight!

    whoops I meant Lauren or Scotty...I accidently typed Haley...do not like her style! I thought James would be the main winner interestingly results tonight.

    Come on Scotty and Lauren , either one you'd be great!

    Next week Scotty and Lauren will split the country vote so one of them could go home. I know I will stop watching now because I honestly do not care about any of these people left (I actually mute the TV when Lauren is on, she annoys me so much) and country music is not my favorite or something I usually choose to listen to.

    Wish I could have, but can't vote here in Canada.

    The contestants this year have been very talented musically, but seem a bit "lacking" in personality. My favourites are all gone now, but they all had one thing in common--larger-than-life personalities both when performing and when interviewing. When singing, you could tell that they loved what they were doing. They made me smile. The remaining three are, for me, all a little boring, "Here I am. Listen to me sing. Aren't I great?" I'll watch to the end, but don't really care who wins.
