    I'm surprised nobody mentioned that David Archuleta also performed that song, especially considering the similarities between him and Aaron.

    Man, I can't wait until next week - not only is Glee back, but we can get rid of these stupid filler bits.

    You didn't enjoy watching Katie get her groove on?

    I heard it too and was :confused:

    Katie honey, show some personality like you did in the fluff piece. That would go miles. you just look scared there.

    This is the strongest vocal I think I've heard from Katie.

    Katie sings Let It Be and that may have been her best vocal so far....no real pitch problems that I detected.

    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.

    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.
