Is anyone watching this tonight? :lol:

My TV is in the other room, so I can't do PBP, but I've seen all perform except Heejun and Hollie.

Thoughts on tonight's performances?

Judges have been standing all night :rolleyes: that being said they've all been pretty good but they had another two hours so they're doing these retarded group medleys! :confused: Jessica wasnt her best, Hollie was alright, Heejun was much better but I think theres wayyy too much love.

My first time to watch and I'd only buy Phil Phillips songs. And he did Jonny Lang :cheer2: He'll probably lose.

The guy with curly hair was awful :yikes:

Sheer, absolute, adoring FLOVE for Elise Testone tonight :respec: :rockstar: :cheer2:.

Girlfriend sounded awesome at the rehearsal, and how cool was it that Stevie Nicks had her sing harmony with her on "Dreams" (which sounded awesome), and then commenting that she would hire Elise in a second if she needed a backup singer?

On top of that, she freaking slayed Led Zeppelin's Whole Lotta Love, and was by far the best of the women tonight, both with the vocals and with the overall performance/stage presence. The only other contestants that came close were Phil Phillips and Skylar.

Weakest for me were DeAndre, Heejun (if the recap was any indication of how he sang), and Colton (with than damned whiny Lifehouse song).

The Trios? :scream: :yikes: Worst. Filler. Ever.

My rankings:

Elise :cheer2:

There'll be a shock boot tomorrow.

This is eerily identical to the week when Pia Toscano was eliminated last year. Judges overpraised everyone and then a front-runner girl was eliminated.

For anyone who missed the show, someone is in the process of uploading tonight's performances on this playlist (http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=UU-GlHO5CxC8FRlEr7idP_Ng&feature=plcp).

I missed Elise :wuzrobbed but I think I caught everyone else. I was underwhelmed by Colton, though it was sung well. I actually liked Jessica's slowed down Beyonce song, but if she survives, she has got to get out of the ballad rut.

Heejun I didn't care for at all. I also didn't care for Joshua's overwrought Mariah (Celine?) ballad.

Oh, and I loved Phillip Phillips.
But I'd kick Heejun off.

Elise TESTONE was absolutely incredible. She gave me chills. She is an absolute rock star. I would by her CD or tickets to her concert any day of the week. She is brilliant.

It's not the video, but you can listen to Elise's WLL at rickey.org (http://www.rickey.org/elise-testone-whole-lotta-love-american-idol-11-top-9-video-mp3/) (the audio is located right underneath the video linked there, which is the same one that's blocked in the US).

Most were really good tonight. Once Deandre, Joshua, & Hee-Jun are gone, each week should be a real treat. I can't decide if Phillip or Elise was the best tonight. They were both fabulous. I would rank them:

Hollie (not crazy about the song but she sounded so much more relaxed, I thought it was beautiful)
Skylar (too much jumping around...I think it caused her to flat out some, her delivery is so good it masks that her voice isn't as good as the other girls)
Jessica (she sang well but the song bored me)
Hee-Jun (I loved the arrangement of the song & he sounded pretty good but he still can't enunciate some words)
Colton (the beginning of the song was too long & too slow & he also hit some sour notes)
Joshua/Deandre (both are more concerned with the vocal gymnastics than conveying the meaning of a song & way too much falsetto)

Elise gave one of my favorite performances ever on this show. I actually thought the judges were a little too guarded in their praise.

One of the things about tonight that pissed me off was that JLo was wayyy out of line when she started screeching "Vote! Vote! Vote! for DeAndre!" at the end of her critique. Yeah, the judges are for the most part useless, but actual pandering and badgering the audience and viewers to vote for one contestant out of all of them is just frong.

I love, love Phillip Phillips!!!!

Dang, Elise was just amazing. She was really in her element.
