A guy, Jason, is from my neck of the woods. Be there or be square!

    Actually Jason is one of the better ones but a pretty weak cast this season.

              I am not a big fan, but my honey is, so I watch it with her. I agree jeepguy..........for all the hype about the "best competition yet", a lot of the folks in the top 20 are no better than the folks who play at your local lounge. That said, it will be (IMO) easy to get down to the top 5 or 6. After that, it is going to be very tough to forcast a winner. I wonder if the voters are record buyers?? Simon's comment last night that it could be a "talet" contest, or a "popularity" contest with different results could be telling. Last year's "vote for the worst" movement could not have made Idol management happy. JMO. We get down to 11 tonight. Who will get the swan song?

                  I think there’s some good talent this year, really poor song and arrangement choices. So many of them do the little runs and what not, or use what we call “passing tones” as a way to connect notes. I believe it was Waylon Jennings who wore a gun in the studio and threatened to shoot any bastard that played or sang a passing tone.

                        Ken Barnes in USATODAY agrees with you. "Musical justice would dictate that Kristy Lee will earn that distinction". I don't think that she will be around for long, but, IMO, she is not the worst.

                              i have to agree with tmiles... kristy lee cook needs to go!! anyone that takes a classic beatles song and massacres it like she did in that country twing twang -- OMG that was the worst!!!! i think that there's a lot of talent there this year- not as much in years past (2 seasons ago was probably my favorite-- with daughtery /elliot/kelly pickler/ etc) but still a lot of talent-- just some very poor song selections .. maybe when they get to the top 10 and get 'down to serious business' things will improve! till then-- just sit back and enjoy the ride!! :)

                                .......and I'm still sucked in and she lives for another week. I would have thought that Amanda Obermyer (spelling?) would have lasted longer. I wonder who has spent the most time in the bottom 3 and survived?

                                  Kristy seems to be a bottom 3 survivor. You never know though how far she will go. Country is her gig and two weeks of Beatles did not help her. If she can get back on her game she might survive longer. Amanda was definitely a one trick pony channeling Janis Joplin as one reviewer I read mentioned. She pushed it too far. The men are dominating the women this year.

                                    Great show tonight!!!!

                                    My neighbor from Rockwall Tx. may not win this, but he will be a BIG star someday, unless something weird happens...I predict.

                                    Hmm, where did I say the same thing about Carrie? :~)

                                      Chickezie Ezie got the boot Wednesday night. They are now down to nine. Kristy Lee Cook lives another week. The real surprise in the bottom three was Jason Castro, the dreadlock haired kid and PapaJoe8's neighbor. He was an early favorite but seems to be mailing it in with the same ol' same ol' every week. That's what done in Amanda Overmeyer the week before and I am afraid the same could eventually happen to Brooke White, my favorite.

                                        This was Dolly Parton song week. Ramiele Malubay will probably get the boot if Kristy Lee Cook doesn't elbow her out of the way going out the door.

                                          The show tonight was good - this year has been a vast improvement over previous years - but I fear Ramiele will be the next to go -

                                          however in this stage of the competition we'll probably have a really good singer voted off early -

                                            Hello all ,


                                            Ramiele should get the boot tonite.
                                            Kristy Lee keeps sticking around week after week .

                                            The Kid keeps getting better and better , and the teenybopper girls love him .

                                            Is it me or is Ryan and Kristy Lee have a flirtation thing going on ?

                                            Benzee

                                              Ramiele Malubay was voted off. Kristy Lee Cook will probably go next week since she was next to last.

                                                Kristy Lee or Jason. He should have been in the bottom three, not Brooke.

                                                  Hello all ,

                                                  I picked the correct pick yea baby !!
                                                  It was time for her to go .
                                                  Got to say it does not look good for Christie Lee next week but a good performance could save her again .

                                                  And brooke did not deserve the bottom three .
                                                  With all respect to Papa Joe and his hometown guy I think Jason will be going soon.

                                                    Benz, I did not really think Jason would win. I just think he will be a star. Time will tell about that though. There are so many ways to go the wrong way.

                                                      Jason has that "it" appeal but he is starting to show his lack of experience and polish with his limited range. Of the women, Brooke White is like Jason but I think she is more experienced. I suspect though the whole competition is wired this year. The judges clearly want David Archuleta to win and he seems to have a huge fan base. I would be surprised if he loses. Only the other David (Cooke) has the potential to knock him off.

                                                        Dolly is one of my all time favorites, and she is not in the competition. She did not sound great last night. If they got her to come on with an offer to pitch her record, it didn't (IMO) work out for her. Ramiele deserved her boot based on her Tuesday singing, but I think that we will hear from her again. With the right coaching, she has the "it" to be popular. Others, with less actual talent, have become stars.

                                                          Hello all ,

                                                          Toy all are right , with the right publicity and luck they all had talent to get this far .
                                                          Any one of them could potrentially be a star .
                                                          Anyone remember Justin Guarino who came in second ? NO
                                                          How about Kelly Pickler or Clay Aiken .
                                                          Then you have Jessica Sierra who is in and out of jail and rehab . What a waste!!

                                                          All depends on which way they go .

                                                          And I would put my money on David " The Kid" Archeletta .

                                                            Actually, Clay Aiken has a fairly lucrative Broadway contract currently. He has been the featured star of the Monty Python musical, Spamalot, for the past few months, and I believe that the contract continues for a few more months. If he was not considered to be "a draw", the producers would not have hired him for the role.
