It was a shocker night. Michael Johns the Aussie rocker got the boot. The other bottom three were Carly Smithson and Syesha Mercado.

    Kristy Lee Cook got the boot tonight. Bottom 3 were her, Brooke White and Syesha. According to DialIdol.com Syesha should have gotten the boot and Kristy Lee should have been safe at number 4. The conspiracist say the voting is fixed. They say the last two years and this year that the number 8 person to be voted off was always a shocker favorite like Michael Johns this year and the number 7 person was always the person Votefortheworst.com backed and that was Kristy Lee this year. If true that is getting awfully coincidental. In some ways it is no harm. In my mind there are only two possible winners in the two Davids and they all get recording contracts and AI tours. I think it is all wired for the kid, David Archuleta. In the judges eyes he could do no wrong and you can see the pattern the judges have to try to influence the vote as much as possible.

    Hey! This is the only reality show I am watching this year. At least it is entertainment and Mariah Carey was pretty good as the guest singer.

      I guess I was a little distracted to notice she was singing.

        Me thinks Brooke is getting the boot tonight. Which is probably a good thing for her. She doesn't seem to have her heart in this anymore.

            On the other hand I think that that younger kid David A. should get the boot.

              Unless he has a very active fan base of young girls, I predict that Jason Castro will get the boot tonight. Or, possibly Brook.

              Jason's laid-back style and lack of power to his voice made his performance last night into an embarrassment. "Broadway" songs are just not meant to be performed in the style that Jason used last night. Brook was better, but still, her performance was not top-notch--unlike Syesha, and both Davids.

              As to Carly--I did not like her performance last night, but I am probably in the minority with that opinion.

                  According to DialIdol.com Carly Smithson is the low vote getter with Brooke then Jason. It will probably be one of those three. David Cook got the most votes. DialIdol.com has been fairly accurate in picking the bottom three and the one voted off.

                      I'm not sure what you consider "talent"-- I think the kid is a big yawn. He's a very talented parrot. He knows how to mouth all the sounds and mimic emotion very well. I couldn't imagine actually paying to listen to him. And I couldn't imagine actually searching that sound out; to me, it is painfully banal.

                        Well, I guess that I wasn't the only one who didn't like Carly's performance!

                        On a side note, what type of job could Carly's husband (the one with the tattooed face) hold--other than working in a tattoo shop? When he is in his elder years, he may realize, belatedly, that putting those "tribal" markings all over his face was not such a good idea.

                            DialIdol.com got it right with Carly Smithson getting the boot. The two foreigners, Michael Johns and Carly probably got the boot before their talent ranking time because they did not have an American fan base.

                            Syesha is a cookie cutter singer. Good voice. No distinctive personality. She is still in there maybe because she is the only minority left (which is kind of unusual) and has that fan base. She could end up on Broadway.

                            I thought at first Brooke had great talent and originality. However, she is becoming a nervous train wreck with the increased pressure and may have been run out of her comfort zone trying to stretch what she does well in different music venues.

                            Jason is still in because of the teeny bopper fan base. He is now way in over his head after doing what he does that is distinctly different than the others but with only with certain types of music. Andrew Lloyd Webber songs weren't meant to be sung in quiet coffee houses.

                            David A, the kid, has a great voice, obviously groomed, but is starting to boringly wear out sounding the same and looking the same no matter what he sings. He has the teeny boppers too.

                            David C is the most experienced with a decent voice and knows how to change up his arrangements and knows how to pick them. Unfortunately, he is average talent.

                            Bottom line. They said this was the most talented group going in at the beginning of the season. It may have been the most talented in overall average with few klinkers as in the past but they don't seem to have anyone standing out. It should be a final between the two Davids.

                            With that critique I now have to turn in my man card or quickly get back to watching NASCAR racing.

                              Going all the way back to Season 1, I would pay to see

                              1) Kelly Clarkson,
                              2) Melinda Doolittle,
                              3) Fantasia Barrino,

                              and I'm kind of stuck right there. Maybe Sayesha, I could see her in the touring company of Smokey Joe's Cafe. She was as good as anyone I saw in revues like that.

                                Paula Abdul flubbed it last night. She had her notes written out ahead of time and critiqued Jason Castro's second song at the midpoint of the show. The problem was Jason hadn't sung his second song yet. Evidently the judges watch the rehearsal so pretty much know what will happen. She is one loopy person.

                                Going home tonight will be either Jason or Brooke.

                                  Geez, I didn't watch last and I missed the Paula thing. I have gotten very bored with this season, which is too bad, as I have always enjoyed this competition.

                                    Paula is widely believed to be "heavily medicated", and her apparent belief that she had heard Jason sing twice might be an indication that this tale is true. To his credit, Simon short-circuited all of the dialogue surrounding her hallucination by repeatedly and loudly asking, "Which one did you like best?". If he hadn't interjected with that question, she, Randy, and Ryan might have continued blathering on even longer about her gaffe.

                                      susanll, Don't worry it will be on all the news shows. The cable news networks are having a heyday with it.

                                        It was quite amusing.. I am sure its all over Youtube.....
                                        I didnt care for any of them last night.. They just didnt do justice to any of Mr. Diamonds songs, IMHO>

                                            Thank goodness. That poor girl has seemed just miserable over the last few weeks.

                                                You beat me to the punch Susan. It's time for my neighbor to go. I still predict that he will be a star.

                                                  Jason could be the star of the local church-sponsored coffeehouse. Unfortunately, having a three-note vocal range and being locked into a hippie/folk style and a Rastafarian look means that he is not mainstream enough to be a true star--except to the teenyboppers who are smitten with his looks.

                                                  Sorry, Jason--after the summer tour, it is back to college for you. You are not star material by any stretch of the imagination.

                                                    Well, good sense prevailed, and Jason has been sent back home. After his comment about his brain not working (along with his mellowed out nature and his Rastafarian look), I am starting to wonder if he emulates Bob Marley in more than just his appearance. Too much ganja, Mon?

                                                      I had to chuckle how they still tried to build up the suspense of who's getting the boot.

                                                        Even people who never watch the show would have gotten this one right.

                                                          Jason was the Sanjaya of this season..
                                                          Too bad Idol is such a popularity contest instead of a talent contest.
