    Casey has had many good weeks, whereas Aaron has made none. I'm surprised America made the right choice. Good job! Hopefully the paint salesman can go back to his job and obscurity next week.

    It was the swimsuit portion of the competition that pushed him over the edge.

    Yeah. I totally don't get Lee.

    Yeah, I sort of didn't love that song. But, Harry could stand there and do nothing and I'd be happy . I want to play the piano like that!

    I was surprised by the results, Dial Idol was wrong again.

    I actually thought Casey was really good tonight, too bad he didn't sound that good last night.

    DI's methodology only accounts for phone votes placed through the DI software. The setup to use DI is quite unusual now (see below), but back in the beginning, when texting wasn't an option, DI extrapolated the results from the measured busy signals and was fairly accurate.

    If you look at the raw numbers table, it does show that Micheal and Aaron had the lowest totals of phone votes among users of DI software. VfTW addicts are more likely to use the DI software, thereby explaining Casey's numbers.

    These are the requirements to use DI.
    # Windows ME/2000/XP/2003/Vista/7 (Run as administrator may be required)
    # Internet Explorer v5.5 or higher
    # Microsoft .NET Framework v2.0 (a free download from Microsoft)
    # Internet connection (high speed preferred)
    # Modem with an active phone line *or* Skype (You need an "old fashioned" phone modem to dial & vote. If you have a cable/DSL modem you still need a phone modem. Phone modems are quite common and still very cheap.)

    It will probably be a gag-fest. However, I saw the promo at the movies (a few months ago, so, yeah it's been coming for a loooong time) and the Italian scenery is really the star. I would go to see it just because Verona and the other areas of Italy in the film are stunningly beautiful. Maybe I can get the theater to turn off the sound for me .

    DialIdol didn't get it wrong. They make predictions for each contestant about a range of possible placements, and all their predictions were right. Those predictions just weren't particularly useful.

    I think it was Aaron, not Casey, who was getting the tween vote. It's not surprising that people voted for Casey. At this stage of the competition, most people don't vote on one performance. Lee had one of the worst vocals last week and wasn't in the bottom three. I don't think Casey's fans care at all if he can't sing Frank Sinatra's songs well or gets more nervous without his guitar. Plus, his fans knew he was in trouble and voted accordingly. Often, when the judges want a particular contestant to go, they push it too far with their comments and get backlash votes for their contestants. I'm sure there were some Casey fans who though Kara and Simon were too mean to Casey the other night.

    And, yeah, Casey did well in the interview portion of the pageant this week and always brings the pretty. (I do think, though, that sometimes people don't give Casey enough credit for his performances and just write him off as a pretty face.)

    ETA: The list of song choices for next week isn't that big and it's loaded with cheese and bad choices. Who is going to sing Footlose? I'm sure someone will sing Iris.

    Agree with the rest of your post, but I thought Still the One was pretty good. Nobody was terrible last week but I'd say Lee held his own. Personally I thought Aaron and Siobhan (until the very end of her song) were the worst last week although many others loved Aaron.

    With the exception of the Simple Minds song, that is one craptacular list of songs. Danger Zone?

    I could also see any of the guys attempting Kiss from a Rose, but I don't think any of them would do particularly well with it.

    I'd kinda like to see Mike or Crystal rock out to One Night Only.

    I would have loved to hear Crystal sing In the Heat of the Night. Totally underrated movie theme, and a style that would really suit her.

    Too bad Siobhan's not here to do Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In. I'm sure it would be a legendary performance (and outfit.)

    I know. I feel bad for the contestants having to choose one. Mike shouldn't have a problem. There are plenty of cheesy love songs for him to choose from. I could see him singing "A Kiss From a Rose" with acoustic guitar.

    I don't think Casey will do "Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman" because he already did a Bryan Adams song. But, he might not have many other options. Similarly, I don't think Lee will want to do another S&G song with Mrs. Robinson. I'm guessing one of them will do Iris.

    I guess I could see Crystal doing something like the Patty Griffin arrangement of "Moon River," but the judges probably wouldn't like it. I doubt she's thrilled with this list. She might be the one who ends up doing "Aquarius."

    I much prefer Lee to Aaron, but I think Aaron outsang him last week. Aaron was the only one predicted to be safe by DialIdol. But, obviously perceptions vary. I thought last week was one of Lee's worst weeks and that he belonged in the bottom three.

    So clearly we will get some craptacular duets with all the duets in the song list. I don't know who I would prefer Crystal be teamed up with. Mike has the best vocals but seemingly a lower fan base. Lee is popular but wouldn't mesh well with her. Casey...just no.

    Are they going to pair them up deliberately or just pull names out of a hat?

    Even with the lower ratings, Idol brings in waaaaaaaay too much $$$ for them to axe it at this point.

    And add me to the list of folks who don't "get" Lee. Adam Lambert nailed it a couple of weeks ago; Lee's face is so blank, "nothing going on" there....
