    I don't care who goes as long as it's Lee and Crystal that end up in the final 2...

    I would like Ellen to stop making jokes about the piano. I get it, you're friends.

    I hope they have a better theme next week. I don't like it when they limit it so much to one artist. Last week it was Shania and this week it's Frank Sinatra. I hope it's something really wide open next week.

    Um, so I woke up at 8:17 to turn on the tv and Aaron had just finished singing the first song? What did they fill all that time with? :eek:

    This season is so boring there's even a shortage of snark. I'm surprised the ratings aren't significantly lower.

    Crystal is wearing my daughter's prom dress from 2003. Except my daughter is 5'10" and weighs 135.

    Crystal does a really nice job on Summer Wind, could have maybe knocked it out of the park more.

    :revenge: Randy.

    I thought Crystal showed fantastic vocal control.

    Wow apparently I have no taste? I thought she did fantastic, but then again I love this kind of music.

    I'm tired of all this talking back. It never helps anyone either, you'd think they'd know that by now.

    This season is so boring. I don't even care that I missed Crystal. I, too, hope we have a more open theme next week. :yawn:

    Daughtry is still the goat at the top of the hill for me, and it hasn't hurt his career any.

    Crystal looked stunning, too. :glamor:

    I think Crystal had a valid point on this one, though. If you tuned in just for the judges' comments, you would probably have thought that that performance was not as good as it actually was.

    Never a good idea to talk back to the judges. The casual voters hate that kind of stuff. might cause Crystal to take a walk to the seal in the bottom two tomorrow night.

    I saw the performance and I agreed with the judges.

    I suppose Big Mike is going to be really good with Sinatra week.

    I think that unfortunately Casey sang himself into the going home position tomorrow.

    Who knows. Singing isn't always a criteria for this show. :lol:

    Mike was so boring.

    ETA: Randy just went on and on about not caring about the song, just sing it WELL. Uh, Randy, that's what Crystal just did.

    Sinatra fits Mike's style. Not that I think he's doing very with this, but again, this isn't my favorite genre.

    Dear Idol producers,

    If you want me to continue watching next year after Simon is gone, you have got to choose more interesting themes. And contestants.

    Love,

    PL

    Michael's superb vocals get him through Just the Way You Look tonight.....but he could have done more with it, IMO.

    The knoller in me can't help but think that they're deliberately downplaying the Crystal lovefest to make the final seem like it's more of a competition.

    Oh, bleah. Big Mike is savaging one of my favorite songs from this era. Mike :lynch: . Heh, never realized until tonight that his last name is the same as the graemlin that suits most of his performances.

    Randy is clearly on drugs tonight, most likely a few hits of X, seeing as how he just jizzed all over that ham sandwich of a performance.
