    I so don't get the decision to release "The Truth" as Kris Allen's next single. Pat Monahan or not.

    I think Casey is going to be hurtin' by the end of the night. That bus is going to roll back and forth over him.

    Lee messy on Kissed by a Rose. His voice was everywhere. Not his best.

    I love Lee and think he's adorable, but not his best, hopefully he can stay around next week, Casey's voice doesn't have the versatility that Lee's does... hopefully he can rebound

    So I was in the shower. I'm guessing from Simon's comments that I didn't really miss anything.

    I really like Lee the best, but that wasn't good. I hope those girls who love him vote a lot to keep him in.

    Mike singing my favorite MJ song from Free Willy. I watch the footage over and over. Mike's not inspiring me to do so right now.

    Not really liking this from Mike... vocals are there, but it seems way too over the top...

    Is that what that song was? I'm getting ready to go out and only sort of half heard it and I couldn't place the song.

    Every week I ask myself why I bother watching anymore. I guess I keep hoping they'll get better.

    Gee, where did they get the idea for this song?

    Lee sounds flat.

    Crystal & Lee are going to sing Falling Slowly...after Kris had such success with it last year? Hm.

    They're doing a good job though.

    Yes. It plays during the closing credits with footage of real killer whales. It's the best part of the movie. :lol:

    Yeah, they may do a good job with it, but Kris did so well with it just last season that I'm not sure it's a good choice.

    Yeah, but I'm sure you've heard of it. Simon just seemed confused by the whole concept and really wanted to make dirty jokes about the title.


    I love "Falling Slowly", but I can't say that I like this arrangement.

    I didn't like Casey's version of Mrs. Robinson. I can't remember anyone ever singing it other than S&G.

    I love this pick for Casey. :p Not liking the arrangement, mind you. But I like that he picked Mrs. Robinson. ;)

    Did he serenade Kara?

    I will dial my fingers off for him if he dedicates the performance to Kara.

    I will personally send a bazillion condolence flowers to Crystal if she is robbed of the crown this season.

    The duets were better than the solos for me. Crystal had the best solo, by far. I voted for Crystal and Mike, just because I like Mike's voice so much even if he comes across boring most of the time.

    That was a rough night. Crystal by far did the best. The guys were pretty lame. I'd say Michael was second best, and Lee and Casey were both hideous. I'd go with Lee over Casey since his duet with Crystal was so good. Casey needs to go.

    Even though the night was lame overall, the one amazing highlight was Crystal-Lee's duet of "Falling Slowly". I immediately bought the song off Itunes. Studio version is incredible!
