    Siobhan's worst performance by far.

    What was up with the ten minute critique? Lot's of time to kill tonight, or are we already guaranteed to go over time?

    Must have since they're 20 minutes in and only 1 song.

    Casey's really stiff but he actually sounds decent.

    Casey lookin' :smokin: in black and red. I don't really like this song (Hold On? I'm guessin it's called; I've heard it a million times, just never bothered to learn the name), but I guess he's doing okay?

    Casey does a good job on Hold on, I'm Coming, which could have been cheesy. He doesn't know how to perform, but he sounded good.

    Decent performance from Casey, which this year makes him a standout.

    I could see Casey winning and with the right songs and backup band, he'd do OK.

    Ellen is pointless on this show. I'm really disappointed.

    He alternates between being totally expressionless and plastering a smile on his face. He's always stiff. He really needs to work on his stage presence because, given the weakness of the field, he could make it to the final two or three with his vocals, guitar-playing, and looks.

    his growl was anaemic. That song deserves more fire. Man, if he had just thrown the guitar over his shoulder and ran around with the mike a little, or gone over and jammed with the horns, it would have been 100 times better.

    If he wants to play the guitar every song, he needs to study the Boss.

    I can't believe they're 35 minutes into this and only 2 songs! Are they trying to keep people from switching to DWTS and Lost?

    My Fox channel just came in during the middle of Usher working with Mike Lynch. Anyone else have that issue or was it local? Anyway, missed the first two but settled in the rest. I am cooking so thankfully I have a nice distraction from most of the contestants. Why do we do this to ourselves?

    Michael proves that he wants to be the next Teddy.

    Michael sings Ready for Love which I've never heard of before. A pretty dull and generic song, but he has very good vocals and made it bearable.

    I thought that was really nice from Michael. I have always loved his voice but he can leave me cold even if his voice is spot on. I think he connected with this song and I enjoyed it more because of that.

    My favourite performance from him. Probably because he wasn't moving around, which is where he generally goes to cheese city for me.

    the most interesting thing so far is that Usher wears his sunglasses when he is with the contestants, like he is afraid of looking them in the eye for fear of absorbing some of their collective suckitude

    Yes, and he doesn't usually wear shades constantly. I don't know what his deal is today. Maybe he was out late drinking?

    I like that Fox is totally stringing this out. I can watch DWTS and AI on the same TV.
