I'm not criticizing her, but I just don't understand which songs Brian was thinking of.

    She probably wasn't. There was NO WAY they would let Scotty or Widdle Wauren sit on the Silver Stools of Doom unless he/she was actually going home. Whoever was 3rd from the bottom was safe anyway so they didn't have to humiliate whoever it really was. I read the comments on Slezak, EW, People, & one other board that I can't remember the name of & almost everyone said they were voting for Haley. Most people were pretty pissed too about how she is being thrown under the bus. I find it unlikely that she was actually in the B3. Of course we'll never know.

    Casey and Haley should do well with the theme. I think Scotty will find something, she has done a TON and it probably includes songs only written by her and performed by others.

    I think Idol is truthful about the Bottom 3. I don't think they would lie about it. Just because everyone you know who is important was voting for Haley doesn't mean middle America was. The votes of those people are worth no more than Mary Sue in Arkansas.

    I thought tonight's results were insanely predictable, my only question was would it be Jacob or Casey.

    Brian said that not all of Katy's songs are about "love and heartbreak" and you asked which song that would be. I think that California Gurls is not about love and heartbreak. Sex is not the same as love and heartbreak. Whether or not the lyrics are good is a different issue.

    What songs are those?
    A lot of her songs are not directly about love and/or heartbreak. You could make a connection but I am talking about the main theme. For example, I Kissed a Girl is very straight forward but it isn't about love or heartbreak. Just because it mentions a kiss doesn't make it about love of any kind. California Gurls was already mentioned. Even songs about love are given a fun twist, such as Waking Up in Vegas. It focuses more on the aspect of a Vegas romance than on the actual romance. Vegas and what goes on there is the central character, IMO. Lastly, Firework has nothing to do with love or relationships and no, I do not count "loving yourself" as making this a love song. You can almost always relate any song to love somehow but she is not obvious with it in her songwriting the way Kelly Clarkson is, for example.

    I don't get it either, I think she's great! I was really taken with James obvious distress about Stefano going.

    Carole King sang "Country Road." Scotty will be fine and he'll countrify whatever he sings, emphasize the accent, sing out of the side of his mouth, and be just as corny as any other week.

    He's singing Don't You Forget About Me in the finale, he's already confirmed.

    As for tonight, he looked nervous, but I think it was okay - first time performing it live and all.

    The bit with Beth and Steven Tyler? Hilarious, especially her giddiness and David shaking his head.

    I didn't say everyone I know is voting for Haley. I said I read on various boards that the majority of those boards were voting for Haley. I don't know anyone in RL to discuss AI with.

    And I'm not sure Idol is truthful about B3. I don't find (esp this year) that the producers have all that much integrity. Just look at the different ways in which they present the men vs the women.

    I think they manipulate things as much as they can in order to get the results they want but I do believe the results are the results. It is just my opinion though, as you said, it can never be proven one way or the other.

    I don't think the people online are necssarily representative of all voters. Plus, I think even most of the people who do vote for Haley aren't power voting. So, it wouldn't surprise me at all if Haley really was bottom three. She's hanging in there. She might set the record for most times in bottom three. Who holds the record now? Kim Locke? Syesha?

    It seemed like Kim Locke was in there every week and somehow she made the final 3.

    I see your point, and I think Firework is the farthest from the "love" theme (although I feel like it's just a song that she wanted to release in order to capitalize on the current popularity of the whole "love yourself" theme). I never realized how Kelly really does focus on the angry/angsty breakup or "love you so much" theme. Interesting.

    Yeah, I love Kelly Clarkson and I do respect her song writing but I hope she can branch out in her writing and subject matter as she grows. Maybe we will see more of that when she is free from RCA. Who knows what she has written that her fans never hear or see but even the stuff that leaks is all about heartbreak or being in love and there is very little in the way of layers or texture, if that makes any sense.

    Matt Bellamy was obviously lying when he said that James did a great job and he liked his version. How can he possibly like that performance (at least vocalwise)???
