    Yeah I really liked Siobhan at first, but somewhere she went off the rails. Still think she's adorable, though. I don't even have a favorite anymore, I can watch it with no stress.

    Two seasons in a row for four guys/one girl final five.

    Sorry to see Siobhan leave but as long as Lee & Crystal are safe, I'm good.

    I would much rather have seen Mike or Aaron gone, but I'm not too sad about Siobhan. I really liked her early performances of Wicked Game and The House of the Rising Sun, but she really regressed during the course of the season. She didn't seem to understand how to use all the vocal ability she has.

    I think that happened in episode two.

    It's like Mike said, it's no surprise that one of them will be leaving each week. It is what it is. :lol:

    And in the year of the woman, Crystal is the last one standing. AI producers did a fine casting job this season. :rolleyes: I say, fire the producers.

    Poor song choices along with trying to incorporate all the feedback, but the feedback from the judges was all over the place, and we have no idea what feedback she got from the vocal coaches and band. With a big voice, you have to be 100% committed 100% of the time. Every time she was unsure, she had an up and down performance. Good to see her go out on Think, though.

    If Lee was in the top three this week, when he was at his weakest, then I can't see him finishing below third. Siobhan wasn't my favorite, but at least she was a little interesting, even when she became predictable. Things could get even more boring.

    At this point, the big suspense is whether Lee will find an ounce of charisma, Casey will wear his hair down or in a ponytail, Aaron will play grown up with Frank Sinatra or turn a Sinatra song country, and whether they'll all drop their guitars for Frank Sinatra week. I don't think this is going to be a good week for Casey. The theme is not good for him and he wound up in the bottom three the last two weeks. He may be going home next week.

    ETA: According to MJ, Harry Connick Jr is doing the arrangements and orchestrations for the songs, so the guitars are out. :lol:

    I'm worried for Crystal next week. I don't see Sinatra song book as being a strong suit for her. That would be two weeks in a row that she might be at a disadvantage. Wonder if it's deliberate?

    Did anyone else notice that Aaron was the top of the list on DialIdol? :confused:

    Aaron was singing country, got rave reviews from the judges, and probably inherited more tween fandom from Tim. As the season moves on, the text votes count for more. I don't think he's going home soon.

    I think Crystal will be fine with the music next week. Vocals will be front and center and she has strong vocals. It's fine that it's not the kind of music she usually sings, especially since that's true for all of them.

    Because nearly all the text votes go through. As the season goes on, a smaller percentage of the phone votes go through because of an increase in busy signals.

    Interesting. I have only voted last year and this year. Last year for Adam, this year for Crystal. I noticed that this year, it has been pretty easy to get through. I figured they added lines to help with the volume. Maybe I just started earlier this year :lol:.

    Apparently next week's mentor will be the first IDOL mentor to arrange the songs, write the orchestrations for the contestants and perform.

    This might actually be interesting because I've always wanted the mentors to spend more than 5 minutes on each contestant. It sounds like they'll be collaborating heavily with Harry Connick Jr to come up with song choice, song arrangement, etc.

    I love Harry Connick Jr. Regardless of what the contestants do, he'll be a treat.

    Harry went to high school with my brother so I remember him way back when he was a kid. Nice guy who even after living away for years still sounds like a true New Orleanian. Can't wait to see him on idol.

    He gives the impression of being a nice guy. I'm glad to hear that he truly is. Thanks :)
