I really liked the Idol's Idol theme. It's broad enough so that everyone can find a song that suits them.


so far i like stevie nicks best

She cracked me up when she was trying to make Jimmy feel better and telling him that he was gorgeous. It was great to see Elise and Phillip have such wonderful moments with Stevie. And they both gave awesome performances. Those two had my favorite performances of the night, followed by Hollie and Jessica.

I didn't think Colton's singing was anything special and the judges reactions were ridiculous. (He does seem to have the most talent when it comes to pandering though.) I cracked up when they tried to pretend that he was a dark horse. They've been promoting him from the beginning and I think they already know he's probably going to win, which may be why the judges gave him such a tongue bath tonight and why he's been gifted with the song assignments and arrangements in the group numbers the last couple of weeks. I will be so sad for all the current and future female contestants on this show if Colton wins this season.

OTOH, I think they've decided they don't want Hollie to do well. They've been really hard on her lately. Definitely too hard on her compared to the tongue-baths and SOs so many others got tonight, not to mention JLo pleading for people to vote for DeAndre. :rolleyes: I don't get why the loved Joshua's screaming so much.

I thought Jessica did really well tonight. She didn't get a standing ovation, but Heejun got one, apparently because he didn't make a joke of the competition this week. (His singing was much better this week, but not worthy of a standing ovation.)

Skylar's performance did nothing for me tonight. It was just all out twangy/nasally shouting to me. If there has to be a girl in the bottom three, she would be my choice. I'd put Heejun, Joshua, and Deandre in the bottom three if I could, but I'd be surprised if none of the girls end up there.

I haven't been a fan, but I am now: Elise was AMAZING.

Hollie was my favorite, but I'm slowly losing interest. I think the audience might be doing the same. Jessica was good. Heejun was sooooo much better tonight, sang very well and with some real emotion.

Skylar is cute but forgettable, IMO. Colton is okay, I imagine the tween vote will get him far. Phillip seems like a nice enough guy and he's cute, but the love seems OTT to me.

I hated Joshua's screaming, off-pitch performance. But I think DeAndre may be going home.

If Hollie, Jessica, Joshua, Phil or Colton end up as the lowest vote-getter tomorrow night, I think the judges will use the save.

To me Skylar has suddenly become really boring. She gives the exact same performance every week.

Why oh why did Joshua sing the Mariah version of that song? The original is so much better. His screaming really turned me off. My bottom 3 - Joshua, Skylar, HeeJun. Don't get the love for the Beyonce song...I didn't think Jessica slowed it down that much to change it into something diffferent. Loved Elise - just wow! Who knew? :) (my tweener voted for Deandre from every available device in our house with both hands, if she could have got the cat to vote she would have given it a cell phone!)

Holy shit, Elise!! I just watched on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Usn3o3kle44) after hearing she was great :respec:

I thought Deandre was the worst. I can't listen to his screechy falsetto.

And I agree about Joshua, that song was not meant to be screamed.

I thought Holley was pitchy.

I liked Jessica. I don't know the song, so I have no reference to the slowness.

HeeJun sang well, for him. He really does have a smooth, nice tone. But, he's a bit boring.

Skylar's performance was good. But she did it already. It seems that she has that one song down, but what else?

I liked Colton, a lot.

Phil was really good. He is so connected and natural.

Elise blew it out of the park! Led Zepplin - who can pull that off? She did!

I would put the top 3 as Elise, Phil, Jessica. Elise definitely 1st. Phil and Jessica could flip-flop for 2nd/3rd.

Agree a bit.

I think they'll wrestle in saving Joshua, the other four they wont...

Favorites last night:

Elise and Phillip

Does the fact that English is not Hee-jun's first language effect his enunciation?

I thought Deandre was the worst. I can't listen to his screechy falsetto.

I actually enjoyed Deandre. I think that's really who he is, an R&B kinda guy who will always come up short specially if he's going to try a Philip Bailey kind of falsetto song like Reasons, he miserably failed last time but last night wasnt so bad...

I dunno. To me, he sounded like someone was grabbing his unmentionables.

Actually, I thought that my cats might start howling.

That might've sounded better. :shuffle:
