    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.

    Most of y'all just don't like R&B. :drama:

    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.

    I don't know how well Crystal's albums will sell, but I'd love to hear her in concert.

    I wish Crystal would step out of the box that she is in. Too predictable every week.

    still will probably win this season, but I am not connecting to her

    I think that was a little rough for me. I liked the arrangement, but not so much the vocals in the higher parts. I'm still a fan though.

    Yeah. It's too bad this summer's concert is mostly going to be people I have no desire to hear, in an audience full of screaming tweens.

    I hope she gets to make an album that is right for her and then goes on tour with it.

    I dont think she will win. She's that front runner who has the surprise auffing in 3rd place or so

    Yep. She's not mainstream enough, and she's not really playing the game strategically.

    Oh, yes, Kara, I'm waiting for Crystal to do Bonnie. Please. Please. Please. I'll be happy to send her my favorite choices for her to do. Angel in Montgomery, Real Man....I could give her at least 10 different choices.

    Crystal awesome, as usual.

    Don't know if it was her best though - I think I may have actually preferred Carly's version (not that that's an insult or anything, Carly was one of my favourite contestants).

    I like Crystal, but I think I like Carly's and Kris's version of Come Together better....

    I just can't watch Idol-does-Beatles anymore. I switched to PBS's show about Mormons. Hee- I see Peter gave me a close enough poll option.

    Crystal was very good, as usual. Everyone else was disappointing, and I'll youtube the rest tomorrow.
