this is why I don't judge  or recommend music.

I thought Jason was the best last night.  Memories was a lot like his Hallelujah and the Somewhere Over the Rainbow ala ukulele.  But I knew as I was listening to it, the judges would pan it and, sure enough, they did.  I really didn't understand Simon's take on it because he really loved Jason's Hallelujah.

And I really didn't like Carly's Superstar.

But, then again, I can't carry a note.

Don't know if he was the best but I really liked his version of Memory.  Of course I think he is cute as a button and loved his Over the Rainbow version. This week I think it's Brooke's turn for the AI trip down memory lane.

Think the David's will be the finalists.

My $'s still on the Davids, with Archuleta taking the title~

But last night was the first time I enjoyed watching Syesha and Carly. I thought they did great.

Brook and Jason? Can they both go home in one night so we can get this show overwith!!??lol

And A.L. Webber was no treat to see either~ :o

I'm not sure who would've been the celeb coach, but why restrict the kids to the mostly bland Andrew Lloyd Weber catalog?  Have David Cook sing "The Bitch of Living" from Spring Awakenings.  Have Carly sing "Find Your Grail" from Spamalot.  Have Sysesha sing "Hey Big Spender" from Sweet Charity.  Have David Archuletta sing "The Internet Is for Porn" from Avenue Q.  And never let Jason Castro sing anything ever again.  (If Michael Johns had still been around, I'd love to have heard his take on "Run Freedom Run" from Urinetown, though part of me carnally would've gotten a charge out of him doing "You Can Be as Loud as the Hell You Want (When You're Making Love)" also from Avenue Q.

I just caught up with watching American Idol. I can't believe Carly was voted off on Broadway week. Jason Castro was horrible, Brooke forgot her lyrics and yet they remain. I was most surprised by David Cook actually sounding credible singing Phantom.

I love watching Idol every week. My Boyfriend and I don't see eye to eye on the show since he does not like me siting there drooling over David Archuetta!! Kinda gross I know he is like 17 but hey I am young too. He has a phenomenal voice, David Cook drives me crazy aside from Phantom I wish he would change his voice a bit to try and make songs sound different.

I fell the same way you do...but this is not really about singing is it?  It is about popularity and the teenage girls love Jason, even if he sounds bad...lol

April 29

So who goes home tomorrow night?   I'm thinking Jason or Brooke, but maybe it's Syesha....I thought she did well (but I HATE hate hate the bare-foot thing; put on some shoes!)

Paula must be back on oxycontin....she was reviewing two songs, when only one had been sung.... ;)

You really can't blame Paula for not paying attention to Jason's performance of a Neil Diamond tune. I too was wishing it was over.

I agree Ford....as Simon says "it was very forgettable".

or maybe put another way "it was a train wreck".

I hope Jason goes home tonight -- we'll see how it turns out.

hugs,

Alan

i think we all agree that Jason should go...but who is the least popular contestant?... we will find out tonight...my guess...either Brooke or Syesha, even though I think one of the girls should be on the top 3, i think we will have 3 boys on the finals....

Alright at the risk of getting bashed I have to say that I like Jason.  Granted he is definitely not the best vocally, but he has his own style and sound.  He is very inconsistent, but when in his element I like him.  He has a great personality and gorgeous eyes.  Having said that it is probably time for him to go.  Syesha has been one of my favorites from the start not sure why she is almost always in the bottom.

Woodshere....

I've liked Jason all along also. But boy he went down the tubes last night.   After the 1st couple of bars of his first song, he had me channel surfing.

I think he'll be gone tonight.

I was afraid it was coming......poor Brooke, she seemed so heartbroken.

She seems like a genuinely nice person, and she is someone I think I would like.

Jason (though very cute!) has the personality of a dish rag.  I'm surprised he has hung on this long......I'm sure the  young female voters keep calling in for him.

I still hope David A. wins.   He is such a cute kid.   you just want to hug him.

When they called Jason to go sit on the couch tonite, I wanted to puke, then change the channel!

I expected Brook to be going home in the recent past or future, but each week I keep thinking it's going to be Jason. Gotta be tough to sing when you're crying so hard~

When Neil Diamond started to rock out, I wanted to puke again!

I have to confess, I am pulling for the young David.  I voted about 12 times for him tonight.  I think David C. will do fine, career-wise, even as runner up; look at Chris Daughtry......the win will really boost David A. and get him off on the right track.

Just my 2 cents worth though....

On another show (different network) I was glad to see Kristi Yamaguchi win Dancing with the Stars! She was fantastic....

I know this thread is over and done with for you guys, but we are a few weeks behind you all, so I have avoided this topic like the plague.

I so wanted young David Archular to win, he has the face and the voice of an angel, I just loved him, I hope some big record producer see's how wonderful he is and that we will hear more, a lot more, from him in the near future.

Hugs

Don't worry, Jan, David Archuleta has already signed an album deal with 19 Recordings/Jive Records.
