    I really feel badly for AJ. He completely did not deserve to go yet. At the same time (and as much as I think he has no business on the show), I also feel bad for Sanjaya. He's got to feel like absolute crap knowing that he's the worst of the bunch and that everyone knows it, yet he's being toted around by the teenybopper set.

    Switching gears here:
    Am I the only one around not seeing what everyone likes about Haley? I think she sounds like a beauty pageant contestant (big and cheesy) and is nothing special in the looks department. Granted, I'm not coming from a male perspective, but I think many of the other girls are much more attractive. She's not ugly, of course, but, to me, she looks like any other normal girl.

    Since Thursdays I record Scrubs right after AI, I couldn't do any padding tonight. It cut off right in the middle of the scatter's (Leslie's) song. Did I miss anything after her song?

    Also, I'm very dissapointed in the men vote. The one I hated worst was Sanjaya, and if he didn't get axed, the least they could have done was axe my second worst: Brandon. But majically they both advance. Wow. :mad:

    I noticed the M.C. was polite and never looked directly at Pickler's cleavage. Though she gave him the chance when she started talking about her shoes. He could have look down at them and taken a gander at her pair on the way down. :D

    Kimber is a character from Nip/Tuck (speaking of "enhancement") - and thank you, Jeeters! I KNEW her hair reminded me of someone besides ANS, but I couldn't think of who.

    Now, let's not all rush to judge poor lil' Pickle. Perhaps when she was out buying those shoes, she also sprang for a really good push up bra!

    I'm really sad A.J. went already. He was one of the maybe only 3 or 4 out of all 12 original guys I even liked enough the first week to not FF midway through. (I also enjoyed Chris Sligh, Blake and ummm... Phil was OK too after a rough start.)

    I don't get the Sanjaya appeal. All I can figure are that pre-teen girls think he's cute? He's got that '70s idol (Leif Garrett-esque) hairdo - but even Leif sang better, and that's not saying a whole lot. I know in the past contestants have gotten a lot of votes based on the part of the country they are from (like Jasmine and her Hawaii contingent) making a lot of calls whether or not they are actually the best singer. Could Sanjaya be getting a boost from the large Indian American population? (nearly 2.5 million, according to Wikipedia - and you know they're always right ;) ) Just a thought... I'm trying to find SOME sort of explanation for such a travesty! Although that theory may be blown by the fact that Paul Kim only lasted a week. If the foot nudists of America can't band together to save a weak singer, who can?

    LOL on Sundance and his emotional state. EVERY time they showed him, he looked like his dog had just gotten run over by a car or something. Hello! You JUST met these people a few weeks ago - just be glad it's not YOU going! If it were more of a Survivor-esque show, I'd think he was faking the tears so the potential jury members would vote for him because he cried when they left. Or maybe he DID somehow find out that he was the one supported on votefortheworst (even though he was FAR from the worst this week) and was crying because of that.

    I think she's far and away the most beautiful girl there. Her voice wasn't the best, her looks are just too good to eliminate her this early. I hope she makes it to the final 12.

    I suppose I might sound hypocritical because I think Sanjaya should go based on his abysmal singing. But I don't see how he's really good looking either, but then again I'm a guy, so what do I know?

    Ok, I'll admit it...when he said "Haley, you're safe" I said "Haley who?". I didn't even remember her at all and have no idea where she came from. There are quite a few of those among the guys too...all of the ones who sing soprano. Have you noticed that most of the girls sing lower than most of the guys?! What's up with that?

    For now I don't care who goes or in what order, as long as it's not:
    Blake
    Phil
    Jared

    Melinda
    Gina
    LaKisha
    Stephanie
    Sabrina

    I loved Sundance's crying. It seemed genuine to me, and I like a man who can get check his macho-ness at the door every once and awhile.

    Come on, Chris Sligh deserves to be up there. I thought his rendition of "Trouble" was not only beautifully sung but also honest and raw. He was in touch with the emotion and meaning of the song.

    Well, if they're going to screw up this early, AT LEAST keep Alaina in there. She's by far the best eye-candy available, and also an extremely likeable girl. I'm dissapointed. Not because I thought she had any chance to win, but because there were several other girls that have NO chance to win and I have to see THEM instead of Alaina. Oh, well.

    On the other end of the Alaina love: Did anyone else think she looked like a 20 years younger Paula Abdul? I did not notice that until tonight. Maybe that explains the crush I had on Abdul during her "Cold Hearted Snake" days. :D

    Oh, for the boys, who I couldn't care less about:

    Sanjaya sucks. I had AJ as one of the better ones.

    Oh, all right. I don't dislike Chris S. so he can be in my "top 6 guys" (heck, there's plenty of room there, lol.). He's got a great personality too, so I won't feel badly about his being on the list.
    Actually, I'll go ahead and add Sundance too if he promises to rock out and have as much fun as he did this week each time he performs from now on. :rolleyes:

    Yeah, I like Sundance. I just can't stick up for "Mustang Sally" as much as for that rendering of "Trouble". I'm going to feel stupid asking this, but whose is the original version of that song? (Guess I could always wiki it.)

    Edit: Ray LaMontangne. Guess I have to go wiki him, too.

    I'm glad Sanjaya gets to hang out another week. I don't have the hate for him that most do here.

    I'm much more amazed by AJ leaving and not Brandon. I was sure it would be Brandon and possibly Sanjaya since so many don't like him. I was much more amazed by Brandon being safe than Sanjaya.

    I think AJ did a real good job on his song this week. I think they are often better once they know they are leaving and the pressure is off.

    I still think the ultimate winner is coming from the female side though and I'm predicting Ms. Doolittle or they heavy black girl whose name I can never remember.

    I don't hate Sanjaya, but he just isn't getting it right. I liked him enough before Hollywood, but he's picking the wrong songs pretty consistently. "Steppin' Out" is just not a song to pick if you're trying to showcase your vocals. Well-established crooners can easily get away with it, but if you're trying to prove you've got talent, you need to pick a vocally-impressive song. Sanjaya has yet to do so, and, as such, he's proven to be out of his league.

    I don't hate Sanjaya either, just think he's not ready for the competition. I actually didn't mind the song he chose, but he's too young (did I use the age reference? Nooo, I mean stage-presence-wise, not chronologically) and inexperienced. He needs to drop the shy act at the door and really come out of his shell. I think the problem is that he is flashing so many of us back to Michael Jackson with the high, soft-spokeness, then bring in the outfit last week with the hat and it's just too close of a resemblance (though I'm sure he was trying more for a 40s lethario than MJ, lol). I actually loved him during auditions!

    I think he's getting the Claymate votes.

    I don't get all the Blake love. I mean, beat-boxing was old by Police Academy 3.

    I've also noticed they "bury" Sanjaya in the group songs. He has no feature vocals and most of the time his stage placement is practically off camera.

    They may be legitimately doing this based on the various contestants perceived talent but between that and the judges criticism I think they are really trying to "kill" him. Perhaps because he IS getting a large vote and they don't want to see him end up winning or almost winning.

    I think some of that may work against them though as some voters vote the sympathy vote after the judges trash a contestant.

    That's exactly why everyone (including me) loves it. I also like to watch breakdancing...80s is retro now. Everybody loves a throwback.
