    What did Janelle do besides walk around high fiving everyone? I was on the phone and watched on mute. How'd she do?

    Candice- wow...

    eta- But I'll translate the sub-text of the judges comments. "You sing beautifully, but you aren't going to win."

    Candice was the best of bunch (well I didn't hear Janelle). Did she get the same type of praise that Amber received?

    Burt Bacharach songs usually give me hives, but Kree's and Candice's renditions tonight were stunning -- they're both so far ahead of the rest of the pack it's ri-di-cu-lous.

    Angie was boring and robotic, and Mariah/Keith both hit it on the head in that she has zero emotion and connection to the lyrics she's singing. It's about damn time the judges said something about that, but it needs to be said to all of them, Kree and Candice being the exceptions.

    Lazaro was absolutely painful to watch and listen to :scream: :yikes:. I tried to get through it but switched over to Braveheart about halfway through. As far as what the judges said about him, I only caught the last bit of Mariah's comment and then Keith's....what did Randy say about it? (I'm assuming that whatever that bit that Nikki Minaj quickly said right after Keith was along the lines of "that sucked so badly I'm not going to say a damn thing, otherwise I'll be tearing you a new o-- no, make that several new ones."

    I will vote for whichever of these twits choose a non-ballad. Even though I love the song that Lazaro is going to murder torture "sing."

    Candice was phenomenal. I would argue that it was one of the best vocals in the history of the show. It was THAT good. Maybe not the most memorable performance or anything but from a vocal standpoint it was simply one of the best...ever!

    Lazaro is not going to sing "Angels" is he? Because that should be illegal.

    I'm not getting the love for Amber. That vocal didn't sound very good to me. Why are they pushing her so hard?

    Well, it was better than his first song. For whatever that's worth.

    They're blinded by her beautiful long legs? Honestly, I do think that a big reason they like Amber is because they think she's got a marketable look.

    She's so low key, but I just love Kree's voice. It's beautiful.

    Candice blew them all away.. Can't believe that Lazarro guy is still in it.. like a different class to the girls singing abilities.. in general all the girls are very good and I wouldn't go nuts as long as one of the women win.. talent wise it should be Candice hands down.. but it American 'idol' not American 'talent'.. either way even if she doesn't win she is going to have an amazing career.. and I love her lipstick.. just had to add that :)

    Mariah showered her with glitter and Candace deserved it.

    I don't think I"ve ever heard a Cure song on the AI.

    Candace is an ARTIST.

    Candice's style of singing is not my thing, not by a long shot, but ho-lee sheeeyett, she blew the goddamn roof off with that rendition of Lovesong.

    If there is some sort of merciful deity out there, Lazaro will be riding home on the bus that ran repeatedly (and deservedly) over him tonight. He was just dreadful :scream:.

    Angie/Amber/Janelle are all pretty much "interchangeable meh" at this point.

    I'm hoping Lazaro would be in the bottom just to see if the judges would use the 'save' on him, since this is the last week to use the save.

    Candice and Kree are way above the others, IMO. Add me to the list of those who doesn't get the OTT praise that Amber receives. She's good and all but I thought her first performance was only ok, not anything to deserve Nicki's "you are my favorite girl!"

    Lazaro needs to go. It is painful to watch him while the judges tear his performances apart (deservedly so). I just get really bad second hand embarrassment.

    I'm not really a country fan but Kree is my favorite. I just love the low-key way she sings. She's not bombastic or diva-like in the least. Her first song was miles better than Jackie DeShannon's version. When that song came out I thought it was kind of boring and sing-songy but Kree made it beautiful. And her 2nd song brought tears to my eyes. I've never heard it sung with so much longing.

    Candice was phenomenal in her 2nd song. I thought Kree took the 1st round & Candice took the 2nd. I actually like Amber a lot, in fact, much better than Angie. I really liked her 1st song although she's had better nights. My favorite of her performances are "She's Leaving Home" & "Lately".
