AMERICAN IDOL

Still like David A. and David C. Jason is cute, but I don't think he'll make it all the way through.

Dolly Parton isn't everyone's cup of tea, but this proves how important song selection is regardless of the week's theme.

There was a brief segment on David A. on "Good Morning America" where they interviewed students at his school (who really like him and say what you see is the real guy) and someone behind the scenes who says he picks all his own songs, not his dad.

It will be interesting to see how all this plays out. (Did not like the barefeet schtick. Done before effectively, but not last night, imo)

Didn't see the show GMA show

On to tonight.

Don't TOTALLY agree with the bottom 3 (Brooke) , but Brooke is no AI. She did however redeem herself with her "why I am crying" thing on stage. Made her really endearing.

Not gonna say a word about Dolly's "Jesus and Gravity" song, ok, I LIED. What a heap of CRAP. Dumbestass song OF ALL TIME.

Kristy next, then Syesha, then David A. That's my wish list.

Not gonna happen, but my wish list nonetheless.

Also a little concerned that David C. was rushed to the hospital after the show with extremely high blood pressure and heart palpatations. Said he was very concerned about his brother who has cancer who has taken a bad turn...

Did you see Larry King Live on Monday night? He had Simon, Randy, Paula and Ryan Secrest. Larry asked the judges who they thought would win. Simon said the two front runners are David C and David A. Interestingly, he said David C. is someone he would listen to personally (not from a judge standpoint).

OK, I'm here in reality world, Kel. But I only watch Idol. No other reality shows. Well, I watch UFC. And I watch the Soup which makes fun of reality shows.

It took a few minutes to get my jaw off the floor. I thought he would easily make at least final 4. And Kristyjaya sings on.

Things looked up for a second when Seacrest made the comment about not sending anyone home last year on this week...then pulled out the rug again. Someone needs to slap him.

I hope Secrest gets his hand slapped for doing that. Low class. I've liked him before for being a foil to Simon Cowell, but he's now jumped the shark.

I didn't watch because my shows were all back on Thursday (Earl, 30 Rock, Office, Scrubs, ER). Anyone know who the Vote for the Worst people are backing now that the one little weird guy is gone?

Vote for the worst has "Kristy Lee Cook" on the home page.

If only they had.

Vote for the Worst only carries someone so far, unfortunately, it causes the good to go off too soon.

Great week for David Cook and David A is hanging right in there. Not so good for the rest; although, I thought most of them did very well on Mariah Carey material.

David C did great. I absolutely loved it.

Now...can we get better themes? This is the most boringester season EVER.

I really think that David C. will bring home the gold this season. He's impressive on every show, and sometimes he just gives me chills.

I wasn't feeling Carly at all tonight. I appreciated her spirited delivery, but felt many of the notes she hit were just way off. Also, she didn't harmonize well with the back-up group. She's definitely a solo artist.

Too bad that Brooke got off to such a dreadful start, and that alone should eliminate her this week -- very unprofessional at this point in the show. Think she would have been much better if she'd been able to do it straight through.

Jason! I sure hope he manages to hang in there this week. It just wasn't his style at all and he was very uncomfortable. Still love him, and keeping my fingers crossed in his direction.

David A. can sing, no doubt about that. That style was well suited for his voice. I'm not a hater, just don't love him like my teenaged daughter and her friends do. He is cute.

Syesha did well, and was also well suited for Webber songs.

My predictions:

David C. to win!
Brooke to leave.
Final two: David C. and Jason (at least, that's my very skewed preference)

I think the final three will be the two Davids and Jason. The Davids will be in the final, and David C. will win.
I agree - this isn't my favorite season if Idol.

Brooke had to go. Eventually it will boil down to the two Davids.

Totally agree with you. It will be between the two Davids.

Sad showing again tonight for my boy Jason. Hate to see him go, but I believe he will tomorrow.

Jason seemed a bit ready and relieved to go ('we have to do 3 songs next week..."). I'm going to miss him next week.

My expectation is that Syesha goes next. If by the grace of the power voting youngters David C goes, I can't see any point in watching the final. Though much like everyone else, I do imagine it will be an all David final.

Since my pony tends to finish second on this show, I hate to admit just how much I want David C to win. Maybe I need to start cheering for the extra David. That might just put the jinx on him!

Yep. Not sure how this will play out at the end. I'm sure both of them will get contracts and find their own audiences. Winning helps, but coming in second ain't bad.

We were shocked, but THRILLED at that result. There may be hope for the power voting younger crowd yet.

It was great to get to hear Jason sing Hallelujah again. Good thing we didn't stick to our plan of just watching the last 15 minutes of the show!

I could kick myself for not watching all of it. What I did see was fun and lots of cameo star moments. I thought Carrie Underwood did a great job on her song. You can see why she's now a star in country music.

That's the one thing that's hopeful for all the singers who get exposure on this show - they don't all have the same style, and if they'll gravitate to the nich where they are really good, then they can have great careers.

I agree. They may not all get mainstream or big time, but they have a shot at a career that doesn't require a "day job."

Just in recent channel surfing, I saw Taylor Hicks with a pretty jamming concert. Playing guitar, harmonica, singing, dancing like a deranged dad at a wedding...all the regular Taylor stuff. Chris Sligh (aka Jack Osbourne) was on one of the Christian networks promoting his new album. Carrie Underwood's speech when she won the female vocalist award was thanking the fans for giving her a career. Of course Kellie Pickler was there performing.

BTW, is it just me, or did Amanda not give a crap last night?

Queentxf, you are right on about Amanda. She looked like she was forced to be there (which she probably was) and couldn't care less.

Thanks for the update on the past Idol-ers. I wonder what's happened to some of them. Did Justin Guarini ever make it, other than the "From Justin to Kelly" movie? He has a great personality but a pretty narrow singing style. Loved your description of Taylor Hicks. The guy is being true to himself, I think.

Justin hosts the Idol show on the TV guide channel with Kimberly Caldwell. It's kind of ironic since he spent a lot of time trying to distance himself from the show...even basically shaving his head. I loved him on the show, but hated his CD (I think there's one or two songs I like). Simon has said, after that CD tanked, that he listened to it with Justin before it came out and thought it was awful. He didn't say anything because the kid was so excited about it, and he didn't want to crush his dreams...apparently he felt like acting like Paula for a day. "Oh, Justin, thanks for letting me hear your album. Your hair is amazing, and I love the cut of your pants. You're so delightful."

After that he did something on Broadway, a few bit parts, and he was a prank show on AMC or something. Wannabe actors were brought in to fake movie sets, thinking they were getting real work, and then the show screwed with them. It was bad. I saw it once, and don't know if it was on much more than that. I read somewhere he's doing a new album (more Jazz-styled than R&B/Pop) plus acting in some movies.
