    You guys are trying to bring reality into a reality show thread? :D I think that Candice is far more talented than Amber and I hope Candice beats her.

    I know Allskate, we're ridiculous, aren't we?? :lol:

    It just makes me crazy, to feel such obvious manipulation. :rolleyes:

    And ITA about Candice vs. Amber.


    And look there, no standing ovation for Candice.

    Could Candice look any more unenthusiastic at the hospital? I like Candice but this song sucks. And Amber was not current. I don't hear Celine on the radio.

    I guess I'm not familiar with Drake or his songs. Aren't his songs more current than Celine? I don't get this critique from Nicki and Randy.

    I liked that from Kree

    I am not getting the Amber love. I really don't like Amber's style at all.

    I really liked that from Kree. Boy, the judges really want Amber to win, huh? Why the dogpile and why Amber?

    I thought Kree did a great job.

    It's very weird to see the critiques for Candice and Kree.

    I'm predicting that Angie will get a tongue bath no matter what.

    I know they think Amber is the Queen of Everything, but their criticism of the other girls is getting ridiculous.

    It's been ridiculous for weeks, including most of them not including Candice in their top three. It's become very predictable. I think they see Amber's legs and conclude that she's the next Beyonce despite her repeated mediocre ballads.

    And Angie gets a standing O.


    I have to remember that this isn't a singing competition. :p

    Big surprise. Maybe it's the ballad effect.

    Nope. They would give Amber and Angie standing Os even if they weren't singing ballads. They have an agenda. I hope it backfires on them and we have a Kree and Candice finale.

    Idol is going to continue shooting itself in the foot, isn't it? They are going to push Amber so hard and if she wins they will have yet another winner who puts out a flop album and single and goes away. The brand did so well at first because artists like Kelly, Fantasia and Carrie all had huge successes in their respective genres. A winner who can go on to have success is important for this show. Why don't they understand this and why are they so blind to who can have success. All three besides Amber have a better shot at success in their genres (country for Kree, R&B for Candice, Christian Pop for Angie) and all have cross-over potential.

    I find all of Angie's performances are interchangeable. I don't know how the judges can rave about tonight's number

    I think they've decided Kree will end up like Taylor Hicks if she wins. I think they were hoping she'd go in a more country bent, but her love for blues has them having flashbacks to his win.

    Okay, I am starting to think they want us to give Kree the sympathy vote. They (did Kree pee in Nicki's Cheerios or something) have been overly harsh to her tonight.

    I must be deaf - I heard Kree as the better one in that duet. But in all honesty, the DRUMS rocked it and won that round

    People frequently say it's a bad idea to sing Adele on a singing competition because you'll pale in comparison. And, of course, they give an Adele song to Candice and Kree.

    They'll Amber and Angie will sing a song by someone who doesn't sing nearly as well as Adele does.

    Part of me wants Kree in the finale, but part of me thinks she'll produce a much better album if she's signed by someone else.

    Poor Kree. I thought she sounded better than Amber. And the performance quality was equal for me. Again the judges and I are watching 2 different shows.
