IDOL.....

Time for a new thread...it took me too long to scroll....I'm slow remember.

I think this week absolutely stunk....with 3 exceptions....Katharine, Travis and of course...Chris.

I don't exactly know what Simon was thinking when he said Chris needed to do a different genre...it was the 21st Century. Chris' singing of "What If" was in my humble opinion, better than Scott Stapp's.

I must qualify this, I am a huge Creed, Nickelback, Peas, Coldplay, Matchbox 20...you get the point...Rock on Chris.

As always, loved Chris...other than that wasn't impressed...although Elliot did surprisingly well, I think.

Pretty sure Lisa's going home...

Maybe her, Ace, and Bucky in the bottom three??

I'm thinking this is it for Lisa too...I wouldn't mind seeing ace, lisa and paris in the bottom three...this was a pretty terrible week all around with four (in my opinion) exceptions...

Tonite was the WORST. Simon said a mouthful when he used the word 'painful'.

And, damn that Pollyanna Paula...I'm SO sick of her honey-drenched nonsense.

I totally agree with you Kimmie! I saw the last 20 minutes of Idol tonight and I wanted to puke! It was actually more painful than evaulating TB drugs for my Infefctious Diseases class tomorrow. UGGH!

Aside from Chris...visually I would hate to see Ace go (he's hot)...but I think Train is crying from that aweful rendition.

And Paula needs to take her meds before the show....YIKES

I have never liked Bucky, but I think he did better this time around.

Chris is always good. But Simon??? One week Simon praises Chris for doing his own thing and not conforming to what others do, next he bashes him for singing in his own way. Make up your mind!

Taylor was good, but not his best.

Everyone else's performances have gone downhill.

Taylor....I meant Taylor...

And anyway, Elliot was very good also, but I could not stop comparing him to Bo...and Bo rocked that song.

If they make Chris do a Celine Dion song, I'm gonna make a Simon Voodoo doll and stick pins in his eyes.

Boring, boring, boring show. The 21st century show is always the most boring. All the songs are things I can't stand in the original.
(Actually the song Taylor sang sounded promising at first - what was that? It had a Van Morrison thing goin' on.)

Even my 3 favorites...Simon's comments were right on about Mandisa (self indulgent) and Paris (little girl playing Beyonce). And Elliot has a great voice but he needs to work on performance.
Now if you could get Elliot's voice and Chris' stage presence!

I wouldn't argue with any good thing anyone has to say about Chris, and wouldn't mind seeing him win, but I don't like Creed, Nickelback, Live, etc. so it's getting kind of old to me. I'll be interested to see what he comes up with for disco night! (But it just came to me - 10 bucks on The Chili Peppers' version of "Love Rollercoaster"!)

Ace--very pretty, but that move showing off his scar as he sang the word 'scar'?? Hysterical. Awww...and then he was so proud showing it to Ryan. He's such a little puppy boy.

Everyone's always down on Paula, (and I agree with it all--Kimmie, LOVE "honey-drenched nonsense"=), but what about RANDY?? He bugs me even more than she does. I am fully convinced he doesn't have any idea what he's talking about.
Almost everything he says he's picked up from one of the other two. He has like 5 stock phrases he just pulls out at random.
(Paula at least serves ONE purpose, which is when a contestant I really like has a bad night, she will insure that they don't get completely slammed.)

I recommend always Tivo-ing or taping the show, even if you're home. Then you can forward through the commercials and Ryan's & Randy's & Paula's blathering.

Speaking of... =)
So glad there are unrepentant AI viewers here! If anyone at work watches they aren't admitting it!

I gotta know who wrote that. Ace had me in tears of hysterics. It's like three quarters of the way through the song he realized it sucked, so he oddly and desperately pulled his shirt over to expose his chest so twelve year old girls will stop plugging up their ears and remember he's sexy. Oh, and then the fake hand tremble at the end! Puh-leez. That boy is desperate and has reason to be.

I agree that all of last night's songs pretty much sucked. I did enjoy Paris's . I was expecting Mandesa to do lots better. I missed the first 2 because I was doing the Jeopardy quiz, but from what the judges said about all bad so far, I guess I didn't miss much. I found Elliot irritating to watch because he kept bouncing up and down.

Kelly...who is Travis?

Hi everyone... I'm glad I wasn't the only one who thought the show stunk last night!!! Honestly, I thought Chris, Elliott and, surprisingly, Bucky were the best last night.

Ace needs to GO. As much as I really REALLY like looking at him, he can't sing worth crap. Lisa and Paris need to be booted as well, but I don't see Paris going anywhere anytime soon.

I liked Katherine, Taylor, Elliott, & Chris. I'm praying to the Idol Gods to get Bucky outa there. I think Lisa has a lot more potential than Bucky. I didn't care for Chris' song too much, didn't like Elliott's version of Gavin DeGraw (because Gavin is an amazing singer - go download Change is Gonna Come from the Chariot-Stripped CD).

Thought Ace was going to show us some nipple. Stinkorama on Pickle's song. Sat confused at Mandisa's song, was too obsessed with Paris' hair thing to pay much attention to that horrid song.

Paula's comments to Chris with the stuttering thing was so friggin embarrassing that it made me forget all the performances.

I was underwhelmed with the night.

I think Simon is my soulmate.

Lodi - out.

I really sometimes get the feeling that they stick someone in the bottom three for 'excitement value', that the person with the most votes still goes home but it gets people talking if Katherine's there. Not nearly as much 'chatter' if it was Lisa, Ace, and Bucky like we all predicted...

Ok...so next week is country. What a treat...I'll get to see Bucky and Kelly doing country songs. I so look forward to that much in the same way I look forward to root canals. Guess Simon is gonna get his wish with Chris. Getting my VooDoo doll ready.

Then again...isn't Skynyrd considered country (ok Southern Rock...isn't that close enough?) Just a thought in case Chris reads this.

I'm wondering how Mandisa and Paris deal with the Country theme...and I'll bet all my spoolfus points they do better than Bucky and Kellie!

Paris is so good with the old vibe (like "Fever") that she could get away with Patsy Cline or something.

I totally agree...although Chris doing Keith Urban was pretty stinking impressive...I had no idea he could actually since...

Who's going home you think? No one stood out as particularly bad to me...they all were just equally so-so.

I don't know if Ace tongued the microphone enough to stay. Depends on if the twelve-year-old girls called in before kissing their pillows last night.

I was so disappointed with Taylor last night. He sings well and that song was not good. It was ok, but not like he can sing. I enjoy him dancing all over the stage. I really liked Katherine & Paris. I'm getting tired of Mandisa. I thought Elliott was great. Chris was ok but I wasn't blown away as I have been in the past. I know it was his "element" but I thought Bucky was awful. I don't vote AI but I am pushing pins in my Bucky voodoo doll.

my guess for bottom three is mandisa, bucky and either taylor or paris. I agree, taylor's song was pretty awful last night - no feeling. I would love to see mandisa or paris go, i'm tired of both of them!

I agree, a very BLAH show. I liked Kelly and Chris and really was not impressed with anyone else.
If not Bucky, please let be Ace or Paris.

Great idea about the voodoo dolls. I'll fashion my voodoo dolls out of my belly button lint and see if they work! =0)

Elliot and Paris were in the bottom 3 and Mandisa went home??? That's insane.
What did the judges say about it?
Wow...those are my 3 favorites too. I didn't expect Elliot to get too far but I didn't think M. or P. would be in the bottom 3 this early!

I thought the show was boring again this week...I know they don't have access to every song out there, but those were the best choices they could come up with?

I don't think Mandisa deserved to go home just yet, but her last two songs have been pretty terrible.

Yeah I was totally shocked! She has far more talent than several that are left, but definitely had two bad weeks...it seems like every year there's a contestant that goes home early with an amazing voice (latoya london, jennifer hudson, and one other but I can't think of her name)...kinda strange...

Elliot should not have been near the bottom three, however the other two were dead on. I'm not sure why everyone hyped up mandisa like they did - she was flat or sharp more often than she was on key. Next week will be interesting because I think it will take virtually all of them out of their element - then we'll see what they bring to the table!

Queen is rock music so I don't think it will be much out of Chris' element. Unless he picks one of the slower songs. I wonder what they will all sing. I could see Ace singing the slow part of Bohemian Rhapsody. I could see one of the girls singing Under Pressure.

I really think Ace needs to go. He's my undercover lover (hehe) but he cannot sing. The fact that he beat Mandisa made my jaw drop straight to the ground last night. Nobody was too great this week, but she was certainly not the worst. She deserved to be higher--maybe not the winner, but higher. I still am in shock over the bottom three.

I hope Elliott sings my all time favorite Queen song - Don't Stop Me Now. And we can thank Kenny "facelift" Rogers for Elliott not doing as well. Did you notice that KR kept telling him to quit singing the song with runs in it and just sing it plainly? Damn his botoxed hide!

I have done an about face. After griping about Ace (you've seen it), I've decided I'm a fan. I think he sucks; he's not as attractive as he acts, but you know what? THAT'S star quality. He's not the best singer. He aint't so good lookin'. But he acts like he is. He LOVES the camera. He smolders. He fondles the microphone. Maybe that's idol quality. It's a large part of it. He KNOWS he's not talented enough, so he's doing an elaborate look-at-me dance that is a large part of what counts in the celebrity world. I'm rethinking my stance. He still sucks, but his chutzpah might be worth a dern. Or two.

Kenny is really showing his age and I don't think he sings as well as in days gone by but hey we all have to grow old sometime. I think the show will be much better next week.
