    Ya, that whole confetti thing was WAY over the top. Immediate 'stop' button push for me at that point. (I know, the show was over anyway, but that was my 'silent protest' moment. :))

    They had the same issue last year. Pretty much everybody assumed when they got down to the last week when they could use the save that they would use it as otherwise the show would end a week earlier than Fox had announced, but they didn't use it; it was automatically used the following week.

    They used to eliminate two after a save because when the save was introduced, the number of weeks was based on the assumption that the save would not be used, so if it was, two singers had to be eliminated the following week or they would end up with a "final three".

    Yeah, but they didn't seem especially upset.

    True. Less so than I expected.

    Yeah, but she always does when someone gets sent home - nothing unusual there.

    Ha. No posts to this thread in the last week. Buh-bye AI.

    Next week the red haired chick will be gone. Her snotty attitude at the elimination last night and her contempt for them while the judges tell her she sucks is too much now, America has noticed and they don't like her. Mark my words, she's a goner. It would help if she worked on her facial expressions, her default setting makes it seem like she constantly smells dog crap on her shoe.

    I'm assuming you mean Jessica?

    She certainly won't win, but I doubt if she'll be gone next week. Sam and CJ must be on the bye-bye list soon along with her, but I wouldn't bet on what order they go - or even if I'm right, having watched past seasons!!

    This is the first season of AI ever where I really don't care who wins. Not that I think any of them are particularly good or bad; I just don't find myself invested in anyone like I usually do. They're all pretty lackluster to me. I'm watching purely because I've always watched.

    Same here, but now I do watch more to see the judges try to spin crappy performances into something positive. The angst that Harry deals with every week is interesting, seems to me he's dying to tell some of them to just go home. It's more of who is the best of the ones left at this point, nowhere near the old days of AI where the talent is why you watched and for the most part the top 10 all were good enough to stand on their own.

    I think CJ seems like an awfully nice guy, but I think he's hit the end of what he can do to compete with the others still on the show.

    Lucky for him, Alex really butchered "Always on my Mind", so he will have company in the bottom two.

    I think Caleb, Jena and Sam are probably safe. I think Jessica did enough to be able to stay in thanks to CJ and Alex.

    I'm guessing CJ goes home, though.

    Lol at Keith Urban pontificating about the lyrics to American Woman when he clearly has no clue as to what that song is about.

    I kind of liked what Alex did with Always On My Mind but anytime you change up an iconic song such as that one you really risk alienating a lot of listeners.

    I wish they had not switched to the drummer during Calebs first song. I wanted to see the recovery when he lost his mic becuase it certainly impressed the judges.

    Loved the Cable Guy call out by Keith. I was thinking the same thing.

    Caleb struggling to get the mike and then not missing a beat was epic! We had to rewind to see what happened and, as said before, the switch to the drummer hid some of it from the cameras. The judges loved his professionalism and ability to carry on through, though.

    Still my favorite.

    Won't someone PLEASE put CJ out of our misery!

    There were also a few notes in there that sounded like his voice was cracking. Took me right out of it - along with it being just too much change for me. :(

    Finally!

    Seemed like a nice guy, but it was time to go.
