    So sad to see Catie go. Rooting for Cade and now Maddie.

    My guess: the country genre faction is strong. One of those two will win it.

    Cade isn't exactly country...LOL!

    Do you mean Caleb? I have loved Caleb since the beginning - he was my second pick after Catie. Now he is my first pick, with Maddie behind him (but she isn't country, either).

    No, I should have worded my post differently. My bad!

    I'm rooting for Cade and Maddie. However, I think either Caleb or Gabby will win it.

    Michael seems like a nice kid, but just seems goofy. I don’t get the jump suits.

    I’d have had Catie instead of Michael but otherwise I’m happy with the rest of the final group. Maddie and Caleb are my favorites.

    I’m rooting for Maddie or Michael, but I think Gabby or Caleb will take it. Of those two, I prefer Gabby. I don’t get Cade.

    Thrilled Catie is gone and I wish Michael was too. Judges are hearing something from him that no one else is, apparently. Of course, no one sounded good this last episode. I wish they'd just let them perform whatever they wanted rather than these themes. Disney show was an abomination.

    I don't get the love for Michael at all. At this point the only person I'm voting for is Maddie. The three other people with the best voices (Ada, Catie, Jurney) are all gone.

    In general I like the judges, but Luke doesn't ever seem to have much of value to say. He's extremely likable, but is light on the criticism.

    At this point, I’m happy for anyone winning that’s not Caleb*. He’s exactly the reason the show lost viewers last time. He’s not the best, and he’s just too similiar to the other white guys with guitars that have won. 8 of the 9 most recent winners are basically interchangeable. (In fact, he could actually be Scotty McCreery in a realistic mask).

    * I mean, I would be happy for him. He seems like a nice guy, but I wouldn’t be happy for the show.

    I'm shocked that Cade didn't make it, but I'm not complaining. He's good, but he has zero personality when he's not performing.

    I didn't think Maddie was going to make it, and I'm thrilled she did. I really loved her version of God Only Knows.

    I hate country music, but I wouldn't mind if Caleb won.

    Gabby had her best performance tonight (the Whitney song), but I really don't care for the tone of her voice at all.

    I'm so glad we won't be subjected to another performance by Michael. I don't know what the judges were talking about him really hitting the lyrics. Consonants are mere suggestions for him. He just flows from vowel to vowel. He seems lovable and all, but based on his singing I don't think he should have gotten this far.

    My top 2 made the final 3, and I don't have a big problem with Gabby either considering the other 2 that were voted off. I was not a fan of either of them.

    Maddie or Caleb - if either wins I will be happy.

    Not only that, but they’re so common that try not to confuse country contestant Caleb Lee on this season of American Idol with country contestant Kaleb Lee on this season of The Voice.

    I didn’t watch all of Sunday’s show very closely, but I noticed Gabby was straining and off-key on her second song. I think Maddie is probably the most talented of the three.

    She's been sick - bronchitis, laryngitis, and sinusitis. She was actually in the hospital last Friday for some procedure to help out with a post nasal drip problem affecting her vocal chords.

    Did Ryan say something about 20 million votes cast? Doesn't that number seem awfully low considering with one account/phone number you could votes up to 30 times for each contestant (app, website, and text)?

    It's probably lower than usual, but voting is only open for less than two hours. It used to be open for a couple of days.

    I love Scotty McCreery, and I like Caleb. Mattie should win. :up:

    Also remember that a lot of people in the west probably aren't watching it live (5-7 PM Pacific - it is repeated at 8 PM); that would reduce the vote count as well.

    True, although I have the Idol app and get a notification when voting has started. I vote before we start watching the show. :)

    I still have the same complanit with the show. All the back ground lights and floor lights are distracting.

    I rarely vote, but I voted for Maddie tonight. I still think Caleb likely wins.

    Comments in no particular order:

    - Gabby is the most likely to be a superstar (yes, a la Carrie Underwood)
    - Caleb is def talented
    - Maddie is the most unique
    - Either of the 3 would be a worthy winner
    - Sometimes those who do NOT win do better in the biz
    - How cool was it having Steve Perry there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
