American Idol "Top 3 results show" 5/17/2012 *spoilers*

Joshua is going home. Nice guy but can't stand his over singing. Jessica and Phillip in the finale!

And that almost ensures her a win. Joshua fans will vote for her way more than Phillip. And I am 100% okay with that. I am annoyed however that this also validates the stupid judges save so we won't be getting rid of that like I had hoped.

I dunno...it's been a long time since a girl won. I think Phillip may pull this out.

Wow. Just wow. Joshua was robbed. I don't know why I keep watching this show.

Other observations:

If Lisa Marie Presley wasn't who she was, no one would listen to her.

I love Adam Lambert's voice (I thought he should have won his season), but man - that was one crappy song. He needs to find better material!

Yeah didn't like Adam's song either. He looked great though, like the hair better now than before.

I'll go out on a limb. I'll give 100 to 1 money that Joshua sells more records than Jessica. Any amount you want. Bet me a buck and I'll pay you 100 if Jessica outsells him by say, 2016. Who wants it.

Yes. Glad Joshua is gone!

PP might actually win this thing even though, as others have said, might not be the best for his immediate future.

Lisa Marie looked like she was on something.

Theres too many Adam lambert fans here for me to give my critique.

Go P2!

...except if he does win, he'll have to sing the stupid winner's song. Well, let's hope he can put his unique slant on it.

As I said in the performance thread, I don't care who wins - just waiting for P2's album!

Oh, and Lambert sucked big time tonight (and Lisa Marie was not good either).

Woot. Maybe I should have stopped watching a few weeks ago.

I'm in for $10. I don't think there is any way he outsells her.

With Nigel Lythgoe in charge, we're lucky the show doesn't give the judges the option of eliminating their choice of any of the bottom two or three each week. I'm a little surprised they didn't start doing this when Pia Toscano got eliminated last season, using some "obviously one save per season isn't enough" excuse.

I honestly don't think either of them will sell enough to worry about making a bet.

I wanted to see Joshua singing to his mom onstage but my DVR stopped recording just as he was leading her up there. If J-Lo hadn't insisted he hug her and held onto him so long, maybe there would have been time for his mom.

Unless 2004raptor is a pseudonym for Fred Phelps I can assure you we have heard much, much worse than anything this board would tolerate

In think Josh should have been in the finale. I have a feeling his strong ties to religion may have turned off some of the voters. Seemed to me the judges were praising him step above the others to make sure he was in the finale.

Guess I was wrong. I'm still on the fence about Casey, err.. Phillip. He has those weird facial expressions like Casey and last year's idol -- Scotty McCreary.

Meh, they keep saying this season has the best contestants. I'm not so sure about that.

Good luck, Josh!

My guess would be that this is why he is gone. They hyped him so much that I think a lot of people got sick of the judge's obvious bias and adoration of him. They long ago threw out all hope that they could be impartial.

Unlike Colton, Josh didn't come off as overly religious. His father is a preacher, but he wasn't talking and tweeting about Christ all the time like Colton was. And Colton was getting a lot of support from his Christian followers until he sang Gaga so I don't think being religious hurts a contestant in the vote getting; on the contrary, I think it helps. Just don't piss off your fans by singing something they consider sinful.

IMO the three idiots sitting up there masquerading as judges are killing this show.
I don't think a single one of them has made the first substantive comment this entire season.
They should all three be ashamed to show their faces in public.

I miss Simon. He was always honest when someone was awful, so his praise was actually meaningful.

I couldn't agree more. The "judges" this year were a joke. Bring back Simon, or someone like him. If it's awful, say it's awful.

I would say that by 2016 you'll have to Google "American Idol Season 11" to even remember their names.

Totally agree. I have actually FF'ed through their vapid blather many times this season, especially Steven Tyler.

Yeah I can't remember if this has been mentioned but during the performances I was actually cracking up because during "round 1" they gave Joshua another standing ovation. Didn't give one to the others but then said they couldn't decide who won the round. ummm
