    I agree Carly is annoying, I also think Brooke is annoying too! And I think she is going to go, especially after forgetting the lyrics! I usually like Jason but tonight he didn't do well. David A. is good, but the same every week. I'm bored with him too! Syesha did a good job, and David C. was okay too. I have no idea who will win! No one thrilled me tonight!

    I didn't like David Cook's performance last night and was so surprised when the judges liked it. Jason has probably overstayed his welcome, but I think Brooke will go.

    I loved last night's idea but these singers aren't trying to be Broadway stars here they're trying to be pop stars. I loved that i knew every song though! HA!
    I didn't see Syesha's performance but I think she'll go next. She's been in the bottom 3 a lot and she's just not a memorable performer...

    Not a real exciting year! I did love watching it last year with Blake Lewis.

    Brook is not even in the bottom, nor is Jason. Its Sayesa and Carly, and they were both good last night.......

    I don't know if last year was more exciting with Sanja.... I agree with your comment about Blake, but it was pretty awful to have good singers kicked off and Sanja kept going!!!

    I was surprised that neither Brooke or Jason was in the bottom 2. I thought Carly did well, but I think she was starting to wear thin as well.

    So are any of you making predictions of who will win?!? I think David Archelledo (sp?) may be in the final 2.

    I'm SO annoyed at last night's results... I'm almost to the point where I want to stop watching.

    Just my opinion but it seems that originality has gone by the wayside. Too many cookie cutters. The few that appear to be original, unfortunately are not going to be welcome as "Pop stars". I've heard that the ratings have been steadily declining, though not enough for people to stop watching such as me. :D

    I've pretty much stopped watching--I may flip back and forth, and I always check to see who is gone, but no-one has really caught my attention this year.

    I loved David Cook's performance! That song always sends chills down my spine anyway, and I thought he did a good job. I was totally bored by everyone else. Jason is not that good, but he is different, that is for sure. Same with Brooke.

    That was weird. Makes you wonder if they've got what they're going to say all ready to go...perhaps get it ready after hearing rehearsals.

    That was a huge mistake on her part. It's going to cause a big stink.

    I think she got flustered with having to say all the comments at one time..strange ..but she said she was giving jason the next persons critique ...ya that was bad !

    I liked David Cook and David A-- Brooks second song
    Syesha can go and Iike Jason but he didnt do a great job tonight.
    I think Jason and Syesha will be in the bottom 2

    On the news today they said that the 3 judges watch a full dress rehearsal the night before so that is why Paula got mixed up. Because she actually did hear them all sing more than once. The news said they use their notes from the night before to make the comments.

    Oh, that makes sense. Doesn't sound really fair, though. I guess they can't think that quickly on their feet.

    I don't know how you could go on stage without shoes! Doesn't seem professional to me. :confused:

    I think Syesha has one of the best voices ever, but for some reason she is not "connecting with the audience." She doesn't do anything wrong, but there is no wow.

    Jason was awful! My daughter and I think he is a doll to watch, but we were cracking up - how has he lasted so long?????

    Same for Brooke.

    You never know what will happen.

    Paula really blew it, but I have a soft spot for her. I don't know what in the world was going on with her last year but it was really bad - I thought she must have Parkinson's. But she seems to have recovered this year from whatever it was, and she looks pretty good - except she really looks like she has had Botox or something. When you see older clips, she looks completely different and more real.

    I think we're gearing up for a David vs. David finale (sorry if someone already said that, I didn't read all posts). Whatever order Syesha, Brooke, and Jason leave in is fine with me! I think it's high time for Brooke go home tonight though (just my opinion!).

    we were watching last night, and DH asked if I could come on here to find out who got kicked off (because of the time difference)......... we checkd last year but not this year yet. I hope David Cook wins. I think he is the best singer and its very nice that he has his brother's initials on his jacket and his gituar. (his brother has cancer I think)

    Well Brooke is gone and it almost made me cry when she sang her last song. She is just likeable.

    Superteacher - is that your doggie? It looks a lot like my puggie-poo. The groomer grooms her like a terrier and she has that pretty silver hair.

    I agree - I think it's going to be David vs. David. But you never know!

    I'm surprised about Jason. I do like him, but he was just bad this week and definitely not the "American Idol".

    I guess there won't be another American Idol from Arizona this year!

    It is my miniature schnauzer when she was 3 months old (now 9 months). She kept running up to me when I was trying to take pictures of her and I always thought that "nose" picture turned out cute! :lol:

    She is a very cute dog. Our dog has the build of a pug, but the hair of a poodle - very comical! And darn, has to be groomed professionally.

    Is your dog a mix between a pug and a poodle?

    Yep, she is called a puggie-poo, and as far as we know is only one of 3. A boo boo.

    She has the build of a pug, the tail and eyes of a pug, but the hair and snout of a poodle. She is stubborn like a pug, smart like both (understands a large vocabulary), and is extremely athletic like a poodle, but waddles like a pug and has a lot of strength -built like an ox! The doc always says she is too fat for a poodle, but hey - she's got a hefty build like a pug! I feel sorry for her. Kinda like those tiny foreign doctors telling this big Norwegian woman I weigh too much - I'm like, "Yeah, I'm Norwegian! I'm not supposed to be a size 10!" haha

    The Puggie-poo sounds cute. My dog is a pug/boston terrier mix. His mother was a BUGG but his dad was full pug so he looks mostly pug. They say he's too fat but he too is built like an ox and so cute and smart i can't deny him his treats :wub:

    Ok, so what do you guys think, Jason has to go!!!!!!!!! I just love David Cook!!! I am even getting used to looking at him. At first I really didn't like the way he looked but he has grown on me! Sayesha did pretty good. Did you notice if she wore shoes today? I forgot to look. David A. was good but still the same as ever other week.

    I think he's hoping to go.

    Is he really so oblivious to such a poor rearranging of "I Shot the Sheriff"?

    Here is what I think. David A. is expected to win. The judges really pushed for him last night. Well all season we have been hearing how ratings are down and the show is boring. So I think the judges did that on purpose last night and tonight David Cook will win. That will cause a lot a talk for some time to come. If David A. wins tonight then it is all over. The expected happened and no one will talk about American Idol. If David Cook wins then there will be lots of talk going on. So that is my guess, David Cook will win...I sure hope so!

    I hope Cook wins, too!!!!!! I hope the judges did that on purpose, because I thought it was so unfair and biased.

    SPOILER:














    Did Ryan just almost fall off the stage on his magic carpet or whatever that was supposed to be?
