    OK, apparently I misunderstood the hudson analogy and made an ass of myself. Whoops.

    I don't think the contestants have time to make changes. Gwen kept saying "tonight", so I got the impression that she listened to them after they had made most of their decisions.

    I'm a little worried for Sanjaya tonight. I think he's going to lose some of the 9 - 13 year old girl vote because the hair may have scared some of them. I also think he's going to lose some of the 20 - 60 year old men vote because they didn't show his sister at all. At least not like they showed her last week. I still have vertigo from that. :)

    You have to wonder how much AI will use their 'right' to throw out votes based on whatever reason, and decide Sanjaya came in last. They have a disclaimer at the end of the show that spells out that right.

    Sanjaya has been walking a fine line between being a William-Hung-like character that people want to see, and turning the show into a joke. Last night's hairdo may have nudged him over that line.

    Well, let's see-- so far in the finals she has done a jazz standard, a disco song, a straight-up torch ballad, a Broadway showtune, and a blues number.

    What is this "same style" you're talking about?

    But then who will start all the threads an hour or two before the show begins? :)


    I finally figured out why Melinda is so disturbing looking - she has no neck!

    Lakeisha had so much cleavage showing that it looked like someone's entire ass was in the middle of her chest.


    Sanjaya FTW! He rooster tailed all over the place last night.

    It seemed to me that she didn't even give the constructive comments to the singer directly but to the camera later. She gave some comments to Jordion but I don't remember her giving direct advice to anyone else.

    "I hope (fill in any singer's name) doesn't try this or that when they perform."

    I thought she told Chris S that he's all screwed up getting on beat.

    Speaking of which... what is his major malfunction with that anyhow? I really don't know if there can be anything more distracting that someone singing slightly off-beat. It's like watching a video clip with the audio and video out of sync.... it is getting horrible.

    I just can't understand how someone who can actually sing well can't manage to follow along with a song.

    Well singing well and having good rhythm are two completely separate things.

    I retract my statement based on your knowledge of makeup ;). As a male, I'll restrict my assesment to hittable or not. She was definitely hittable

    I don't see much original in Melinda or Lakisha, both can sing but lack personality. I have a hard time seeing either of them win because I can't see the "young people" i.e. the voters getting behind them. However, outside of Blake, it's tough to come up with anyone for the "young people" to get behind.

    Sanjaya may have just had the corniest, and worst performance in the history of AI.

    CYA!

    If he (Sanjaya) actually goes through and wins, they will have to change the way it works. As much as I hate that he would win, it is clear to me that the way they are doing things just sucks.

    I think it should be vote for the person you want off. That way it takes 10 times as many votes to do any good. Or, it should cost you a $0.25 to vote for someone not in the judges bottom 3.

    LOL. Then at least all those parents of teenagers can knock some sense into their kids after getting the bill. :)

    I loved Jordin last week and loved the song that she picked, but I was shocked by not liking her performance last night... NOT AT ALL :confused:

    Phil was the best guy and Gina was the best girl.

    I kept waiting for Lakisha to sing an up-tempo song... well, now I see why she doesn't do them :). It wasn’t terrible, but it was much worse than her usual standard. The more I see her perform, the more she looks like a one trick pony to me... I believe that Malinda is much more versatile.

    Who are we kidding, anyway? This is a Malinda’s show to loose! Which doesn’t look very likely. So this is really a contest for the 2nd place :).

    I am tired of Melinda. Her fake reactions are over the top. Seeing her mouth THANK YOU makes me sick. She knows she can sing but I guess playing dumb pays off big on Idol. I am also surprised Chris R. isn't more popular I am starting to like him (not as much as Blake). Jordin is so beautiful much more Haley. Just a little rant because my husband can't take anymore.

    They shouldn't change a thing. After all, the judges put Mangina through in the first place. They had plenty of opportunities to eliminate him.

    Charging for calls or voting for the one you want off would be what would ruin the show.

    You hit the cliched nail on the head. I wasn't referring to musical genre so much as style. How do I define that style? Old-fashioned. I think Lakisha and Melinda are both way ahead of the pack talent-wise, but they're playing it safe to the point of becoming dull. I haven't been entertained by them for the past few weeks. I think singing something in a more modern style would alleviate this problem considerably. (Not that I have anything against jazz standards or Broadway.)

    That's exactly the way it should be. As it stands now, sites like VFTW can unify on one person and likely can help keep that one person there with all the votes the site pushes for.

    If you had to vote for who you want off, how would VFTW get everyone to keep one person there? The votes would end up getting split and as Marct said, it would take a lot more votes to have an impact on keeping someone in.

    The way to fix it is to have the judges impact the voting.

    Have them rank the contestants. Last night they would be ranked 1-10. Then you use a multiplier, based on their ranking, on the fan votes. This would allow the judges to regulate, somewhat, the madness.
