    Wow, they certainly saved the best for last. The last three guys were definitely better than the other ten all combined.

    Heejun did a great job as always. Such a wonderful tone and pitch perfect as well.

    Joshua Ledet has so much passion. Seeing how much he puts into his singing really shows how soulless so many of the other performers are.

    And Jermaine Jones. What a great way to close the show. Again, pitch perfect and so smooth and soulful. As long as these three get through, I'll be fine.

    Well if you're not a fan of the show, that would make sense. But for those who like American Idol, we see no need to rush things.

    If we move too quickly with picking the final group, we end up with more of those who get in on an "impulse vote". There's less time for tweens to hear how bad Eben might be week after week, making the rest of us suffer longer. Plus those who got less air time now get even less air time. Plus for everyone we do like, there's two less performances we will get from them with this format.
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    In case you're waiting to watch this, it was like the first night of a high school talent show. Even the good people were too nervous to perform well.

    I have absolutely no idea what the judges were hearing with Deandre Brackensick. It sounded unbelieveably awful in my living room. I could tolerate the last 2 and Phillip Phillips voice. But the only decent song choice was the big guy.

    Heejun WTF - is there something wrong with my TV?
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    The first guy who sang was just squicky and was trying too hard. He looked like he should be in a polyester suit from the 70s hitting on someone at his used car salesman job. It was almost horrifying.

    I think Eben will make it through - he's cute, a teenager and though he had a really bad song choice, he wasn't revoltingly bad. If the listener is a teenage girl. There is a reason the phrase "texting like a tween" exists, after all.

    TV was in one room and I was working on the computer in a room across the hall. My ears were bleeding. From what I heard, I will not be playing the show back to actually see them.

    Speaking of Jacob from the previous season. As soon as he sang in the auditions a friend got on Facebook and proclaimed him the winner. I couldn't wait for him to get off my screen. As I recall, my mute button was well used.

    I missed this last night; doesn't sound as though I should be sorry!
    I hope the ladies will do better.

    I often wonder what the judges are listening to.
    It's not what I hear!

    Ok the big question...why are there 25 "likes" in this poll? The question was "which performance did you enjoy?" Really....there were 25 enjoyable performances?

    Fraker & Ledet were the only 2 I really liked. IMO one of the girls will probably win this year.

    I don't like the cutdown from 24 to 12 in one week, either. There's no time to see what they can do for a few weeks. If they had done this in Season 7, we wouldn't have heard David Cook's "Hello" performance, easily one of the best of that season.

    True that.

    Remember that the judges have a total of three wild card votes, so there will be a top 13 and some of those that may be eliminated tonight might make it further into the competition. I think that there may have only been one wild card last year and this individual (who I can't remember) actually made it very far through the competition. One of the biggest issues that I could see was that of song choice which may have put previously thought favorites into a compromising position.

    I'd be fine with taking two weeks to cut the top 24 in half, but only if they cut out some of the rehearsal episodes. There is way too much fluff and bad auditions. We should get the top 12 before March. Too much of the series is taken up with nonsense.

    Those aren't really the odds of getting through. They are the range of rankings possible based on the site's calculated dial idol score. This would make only the first four people listed as definitely safe according to the dial idol rankings. In the last few seasons, though, dialidol's scoring has not been particularly useful. The raw results have been a bit more helpful. The rankings based on raw results here are quite different.

    Joshua Ledet has an amazing voice, I dont think I could ever get tired of listening to him sing.
