I am really looking forward to seeing this programe too.
I enjoy American Idol far more than the UK version. There are a number of reasons - the US seems to be a fairer contest but the top reason is that I love the involvement of the 'superstars' on American Idol.

I'm surprised there haven't been any postings on this thread since last night...what did everyone think? My vote is for Katharine to go home. She blew the lyric in the first song, and the second song was just ALL over the place. I think it's her time to go.

I'm with you for sure. Going into it I thought for sure it would be Elliot. But was great, really all three of the guys were. Katherine, not so much. I'd be surprised if it's not her.

Ever since Idol was down to its Top 6 or so I was saying it should be the guys left in the Top 3. Katherine has a good voice but she blew it last night.

To be honest, I don't think it is a "great" show. There are certainly many other shows that I would deem as better than Idol. This is actually the first season of Idol that I have watched all the way through. I just think that this season has much better talent than usual.

REALLY can't comment on my choice for this show as I can't critique anyone singing Elvis, but THE KING HIMSELF!

But here's what the Miami Herald had to say (they were right last week)

First off Elliot was excellent last night. His second song he did exactly what he was told to do and showed his personality. He was by far the best last night. I think it's time for Katherine to go home. I'm still worried about Elliot, but hopefully after last night people realize how great he is.

Katharine...boring, boring and pitchy.

Elliot...great pipes, great songs...he may have escaped elimination.

Taylor...his "white men can't dance" routine was cute in the begining, now it's annoying me.

Chris...great last night. He could have really rocked "Suspicious Minds" and "Conversation" into the 21st century, but Simon would have called it self-indulgent, so he exercised restraint and I think therefore, won the night.

Vickie...bunch of kids chasing the American dream on TV and some really good performances to boot...what's not to like?

I was bummed because I missed last night....had to work later than what was initially in the schedule.

I am getting ready to see who gets the boot tonight....I am hoping Katherine finally leaves....

Take it easy on Vickie....has anyone never been curious about a post and wanted to see what it was about because of it's title? I know I have and peek into things because curiosity got the best of me!

As of tonight Vickie...I completely concur. STUPID FREAKIN SHOW

Or should I say, I'm completely disappointed in the American public. I tried to vote a number of times last night and it was busy.

I was just so happy Elliot didn't go. Katherine was the worst last night but crazier things have happened before. Chris did look really shocked though!

I was surprised and somewhat disapointed that Chris went home today. I had hoped that Katherine or Taylor would be voted off. My new favorite is Elliot!

Chris went home??? Wow - I never would have guessed. Elliot's been my favorite since the beginning, but I thought Chris would win!
How did the judges react?
Katharine really deserved it, and not just for last night. Wow.

I was sooooo MAD that Chris went home! I voted for him a few times last night and it was busy most of the time. I thought lots of people were voting for him. Surely he will still get some kind of record deal. I would buy his CD.

Same here, Kati. Actually, I think I would give a listen to any of the top 4. My husband and I just stared at each other with shocked looks on our faces. We were both thinking Taylor or Katherine. Katherine looked positively ill all night.

But the look that was priceless was Simon's. He looked PISSED. I didn't pay attention to Randy and I tried to pretend Paula wasn't there but I think she was typically blubbering.

I bet tonight, when the 3 remaining contestants had a chance to all be alone together, they were having a HOLY SH** moment. Its anybody's ballgame at this point.

I think Chris will do fine in his career. The other three probably need the title more than he does to make it in the business.

On another note - did anyone think Priscilla Presley looked horrid? She is such a beautiful lady and I was shocked at what plastic surgery has done to her face. She almost looked like the joker in batman. And she looked like she had a very swollen belly when the camera hit her just right. And the hair? Parts short & black, parts long & burgandy? I was sad.

HOLY COW!

Holy cow Priscilla looked SO bad!
Holy cow Chris went home.

I literally don't know if I'll watch anymore (that's probably a stretch, of course I'll watch) but who really cares if Katherine, Taylor, or Elliot wins. I, for one, don't. My guess is Taylor. And if he came to town on tour I'd certainly go see him at whatever bar he was playing at.

Yeah....I was knitting and when he said "Chris you're going home" my jaw dislocated and hit the floor, my hands dropped....and half my stitches came off my needles while I was freaking out. UNBELIEVABLE!!!! I think it's amazing Katherine has hung around this long as I feel her singing is screechy and trying too hard. I love Elliott (he's my fave). Taylor needs to go--he is a great performer, but he cannot sing that well, whereas Chris could do both well. I still can't believe it. Ah, well.

I sooooo disagree. I think Taylor is the only one there with any showmanship AND a real voice. Elliott next.
I was shocked that Chris went (though I didn't like him...too much corny intensity for me) but what shocked me more was the DELIVERY of the news by Ryan Seacrest! HOLY FRIGGIN BLUNT!!!!
Paula is still a moron.

Thanks for the URL Diva. That was interesting to read. I called and voted for Chris. I never got Katherine's voice, but the line was BUSY! I tried ten times before I got through. Usually I never get a busy signal. That's why I was so surprised that he went home. But I like hearing that bands like Fuel want him in their band.

There is always a Grassy Knoll moment when a favourite gets voted off. There are still people saying that Rueben didn't really win.

I think Chris has a good voice to be the lead singer of Fuel. Every song he sang sounded exactly the same to me, and he had as much personality, when singing, as the mic stand.

All that being said...Katherine, who has been my favourite, was awful this week.

I think that if Elliot gets confidence in himself for one night, he will blo9w everyone away.

I could not believe Chris went. I don't think Katherine could either - she had a defeated look about her as if she was fully expecting to go and the shock when the announcement was made was clear.

Strange abotu the voting 'mix up' the same happened on UK Idol a lot of people were voting for Brenda and they were getting Journey Souths confirmation Hmm!
