Did anyone else notice that the lyrics were on the monitors during Aerosmith's new song? I guess Steven Tyler didn't want to forget the lyrics on live national TV. Then during "Walk This Way" The monitors were showing a big countdown so that the band wouldn't run over. I didn't notice either of these things with any of the other performances, although I did FF through a good portion of the others.

Why not? If they made fun of P2, then of course they'd make fun of JH. Her faces were very bizarre. For a few minutes I was wondering if she was doing it on purpose just to weird people out, but then I realized she was serious. Sometimes it looked as if she was angry at Jessica for trying to steal her spotlight and was trying to scare her off the stage.

If you noticed, Jessica started out that duet singing as Jessica Sanchez but over the course of the song she began to mimic Jennifer.
By the end of the song Jessica had morphed into mini Jennifer- she couldn't help herself.
It was a bit bizarre to watch.
I thought it was pretty cool. It shows that Jessica will be great on Broadway one day.

J-Lo lip-synched. I'd bet the farm on it, if I were a betting man. And if I had a farm.

They've already "conquered Broadway," and now they are probably desperate for their own reality show. A product placement is a small price to pay to get on national TV for the most drawn out proposal ever (to maximize air-time, no doubt).

I think Jennifer has Bell's palsy or something.

Jessica will not be on Broadway. She'll be making albums and doing concerts. She is not the theatrical type. Worst case for her is being a huge seller in the Filipino market, and I think she'll do a lot better than that.

I really liked Siobhan. I thought she had a much better shot at making it than Dewyze.

There was some good talent on that season. I loved Crystal Bowersox.

Measuring by who won - it was bad. Crystal was good though. And, as always, the people in fifth or sixth place are often robbed.

I never really noticed anybody making fun of Phil's faces or body tics.

A lot of people compare them to what Dave Matthews does. Not sure if that's making fun of him, though.

Sining loudly is not the same as "screaming". He sang with emotion very well. Some of his performances in the style of James Brown or Little Richard were completely amazing. Even though he sang excellent, I think the style of music he sang was too old for the AI audience and that is why he got voted off. But saying "all he does is scream" is not accurate.

There's something about the tone of Joshua's voice that can be grating. Maybe it's not "screaming" but I understand the complaints. Fantasia's voice is that x100.

Even though I don't find it grating, I can understand how people hear it that way...because I feel the same way about Philip's voice.

I guess next year the females should just forget about trying out for the show. The WGWG will be the winner.
I still think the producers rigged the voting. They gave Jess an original song to sing that wasn't her style. Even Randy pointed that out. They gave Phil a song that was a perfect match to his voice and style. That alone is what I think rigged the votes in his favour. I don't see Phil selling a lot of albums. I do see a great future for Jessica.

I don't know if anybody else caught it, but when responding to the judges' criticism about the last song, Jessica said she wanted to *pick* a song that would fit her. I wonder if that was a slip-up, or if there still is some degree of choice? Maybe they're given three or four songs to choose from and that was the best of the worst, so to speak.

No voter changed how they were going to vote after hearing the final two sing the last time. The final performance show had nothing to do with who won.

And this is exactly why I know the "fix is in!" post is BS because there's no way they want this to continue. If anything the fix will be in to make sure all the girls that make the top 24 are far better than any of the guys next year. That's really the only thing they can do unless they start rigging votes.

According to a news bit on AOL Phillip had 8 surgeries for kidney stones since the competition started. He has to have one more that will lay him up for about 3 weeks. From the way it sounded he may be in the hospital right now having it.

Dave Matthews is a terrible vocalist, great musician. Phil is a better vocalist and a very good musician. Phil will do well IF he avoids being "handled" by those 19E/Interscope vultures.

Why would they decide that now? It's now been 5 years in a row. The judges have some sway but not enough to reverse the trend. If they could change the trend then Joshua would have won.

And looking at the top 24 this year, I already thought the girls group was much, much stronger than the guys.

I can agree Dave isn't the greatest vocalist but his voice is unique and when he's on, he's really on. Add that with him being a fantastic musician, performer and damn charismatic on stage and yeah.
Phillip is a better vocalist now but he hasn't been touring non stop every year for 20+ years. I think Dave at 21 and Phillip are pretty comparable in the talent department. Another reason I love Phillip so much. He's like my future Dave replacement when Dave can no longer do this.... that is, like you said, if Phillip doesn't let 19 handle him.

Jessica chose her song from a group of possibles as did Phillip.
Choosing the wrong songs was her downfall all season long.

"As for Sanchez’s power ballad “Nothing Changes"? “It did bomb, didn’t it?” Iovine remarked. “The song didn’t work well live.” Sanchez had her choice of “three or four different songs,” he added. “We don’t force the kids to do anything.”"

I can agree with that. When Dave gets right in the pocket, he's quite good, and it's usually in a way that's very difficult for others to duplicate. I couldn't imagine anyone being able to cover his music. Even Phil struggled to convey DM despite being a much more capable vocalist.

How is he supposed to avoid them?
He is signed, sealed, and delivered.

Maybe you mean "how tight a leash will they keep him on?"
