Who was the one who thought it would be a good idea to put Phillip and Joshua together in a duet of "You've Lost that Loving Feeling?" It was ridiculous. And not because of their genders.
Between the duet and his second solo I think Phillip may finally make an appearance in the bottom three. His second solo was far and away his worst performance so far. It was totally out of his range. He obviously had problems with his ear piece from the beginning and he might not have been able to hear himself, but still. I can't believe the judges didn't call him out on that. That may end up hurting him because his fans may have a false sense of security.
I did not like Skylar's shouting in her second song. It wasn't good shouting. Of course, the judges just raved.
I am more than ready to have Joshua and his shrieking go home, but I'm not counting on that happening. The best singer in fifty years?
I'd have Hollie and Jessica be the two safe ones. (I thought they were too harsh on Jessica for the first song. Yes, she's not old enough and I wish she would dress younger, but she sang well.) But that would require both guys to be in the bottom three and I can't see that happening.
Lindsey Parker of Reality Rocks speculated that it may be a bottom two and not a bottom three this week.
Phillip is on the bottom at Dial Idol. OTOH vote for the worst is voting their fingers off for him.
I've thought Phillip was overrated from the beginning and would be perfectly happy if he's gone this week.
Jessica keeps wearing these 6 inch heels and she can't move in them. She needs footwear she can walk around in that doesn't hobble her movement.
Loving Joshua, Holly and Jessica. Jessica needs work on oher stage presence but I love her voice.
Tonight will be an interesting night and it'll be tough for me to see anyone go, even screechy Josh .
I can see Hollie or Skylar being crowned AI if P2 does get eliminated tonight. If he survive, I think the girls are in big trouble.
I'm not a Jessica hater, but she reminds me of someone with an amazing voice who only speaks English trying to perform a classic Italian piece and connect to the lyrics, even though they have no clue what they mean.
I haven't watched the tape yet, but at my office, everyone who watched liked Joshua the best and Phillip the least. So it seems kinda universal that Phillip had his worst week. If he is not in the B2, I think that will speak volumes.
I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.
I really enjoyed Hollie last night. She has an amazing voice and is getting better at connecting with the song and the lyrics. I was disappointed in Phillip.
I don't think Skylar has spent much time in coffee houses (bars maybe...) but I like how when she performs she just goes out there and does it. With Jessica it doesn't seem as natural. You can see her thinking "walk walk walk...shake hips...walk walk..point...smile..turn...walk"
That said, I'm sure in TPTB's eyes someone like Jessica is far easier to mold into what they want, so they're going to push for that.
Count me in as NOT liking Joshua's screaming. Or Skylars on the 2nd song. She had no idea that CCR song was bashing the US; Little Steven should have clued her in on that. Also count me in as a Terence Trent D'Arby fan (wishing Deandre could have got to sing...)
"awwww....shades of Janet Lynn" - Dick Button on anyone who makes more than one mistake in their program.

Results show: Coldplay and Carrie Underwood will perform.
Joshua called forward right off the top. Jimmy thinks he's awesome and will surely be saved.
He is safe.
Coldplay up, doing "Paradise" because the world just can't get enough of that song.

Was Philip not in the Ford video?
Oh, and Coldplay is on my teevee. I have to change the channel for a moment.
