    Katie's best ever. Maybe now Simon can stop trying to force her to promise to sing country music for the fifty eleventh time.

    I kind of agree with Simon. It did have a contemporary country vibe to it.

    Kara is so annoying.

    Am I the only one who didn't love that? It was good, but I dunno, I just don't get anything genuine from her. Maybe I'm just biased because I LOVE both the original and Brooke's performance from a few seasons ago.

    Pretty sure it's moving to Tuesdays after the performance show.

    Just because we think it was her best doesn't mean we loved it. Everything is relative this season.:shuffle:

    Katie's pitch problems have driven me crazy all season, but she was good tonight. I didn't like that bubblegum pink outfit though. :shuffle:

    Aaron was pretty bland, and that is one of my favorite Beatles songs.
    It hurts to say it but I really enjoyed Katie. Thought it was a great version and she sounded better than she has in weeks.

    I wonder if Katie is pulling a Katherine McPhee on us? She may be at the bottom 3 early on, but if she consistently performs like this tonight, she can go deep into the final 4 or so. There's only 3 girls left, and I could see Katie getting a lot of the Didi/Paige/Lacey votes.

    How many times was Kimberly Locke in the bottom three before she finally got the boot during the final three?

    I was cleaning the catbox during Katie's performance. It sounded okay, but I think I did the right thing....

    Andrew may have personality off stage, but he is duller than dirt onstage. And usually sucking musically as well.

    eta: like now.
    tlk and (deleted member) like this.

    Nice arrangement from Andrew. He's just not a great vocalist.

    That sound you hear is Lennon revolving in his grave at the speed of sound. This guy is just awful.

    Andrew does a swingy, faster version of Can't Buy Me Love. I'm not really buying it, but it does show personality, which he supposedly is lacking in performance.

    Weirdest version of Can't Buy Me Love I've ever heard. We need a gong.

    OMG, I'm agreeing with Kara. Except for the part about wanting to love it.

    Andrew was L&M almost meet Buddy Holly. He should have gone the full distance. That would have been him and it would have rocked.

    What? Kris isn't appearing on Idol Gives Back? I could have sworn that was when they were going to highlight his recent Africa trip (as well as David Cook's). Isn't it tradition that the winner of last season goes on the finale for the next season? If he doesn't appear on the show at least one more time, then that's just stupid.

    Andrew was horrible!!! I'd be sooo mad if he somehow escapes the Bottom 3 again.

    Although I'm disturbed that there were so many girls squealing like Andrew was Justin Bieber.....WTF @ teens these days? yikes

    I think Kris went to Africa for Tom's Shoes. (Tom gives away lots of shoes in developing countries.) Still, it would be stupid not to include him on IGB.

    I think David Cook's strip was for IGB, though.

    Michael does a fine job on Eleanor Rigby. I liked all the violin players.

    Michael's back to the cheese again this week. He needs to sit on a stool and not move in all of his performances.

    :rofl: that's what I was thinking. I like Michael a lot but he was pitchy in a lot of places there.

    If he strips, I will max out my credit card flinging money at the teevee....


    I didn't like it. I also don't think it sounded like anything on Glee.

    I just don't get Mike. He's too cheeztastic. I think Simon feels the same way, and the "pecs contest" line from Mike was just stoopid.

    The pec contest is not a good comeback, Mike.

    I'm so turned off by Mike's cheesiness and cocky persona. Hope he's a shock elimination soon. Urghh

    :lol: Hey, we're in a recession. Whatever it takes.


    I've never seen Mike as the likeable guy they keep claiming he is. And, yes, he is very corny. But corny works with some people. I think Simon dislikes Mike the same way he disliked Taylor.

    Nah. R&B is not synonymous with cocky and corny. Ruben is proof of that.

    I liked Kris' version of Come Together better, but Crystal's version is good, too.

    I like Crystal's take on Come Together. Not sure the back up singers did her any favors when they hamonized with her....she doesn't need them.

    Once, I'd like to see Crystal get to a big part of a song, flip that guitar over her back, grab the mike and do a full knees-bent, all-out almost-screaming part by the pit.
