    Yeah, they drag this stage out every year - and half of them they give too much time to (IMHO) will be gone in a week or so.

    I'm also glad that the cowboy went home and Heyjun made it through. Not because he's a better singer (I don't think he'll make top 12), but he's a better human being!

    I love Heejun. Him and Phillips are my favorites this year. Heejun is so likeable and funny and adorable. I want to hug him. AND his voice is awesome. He might not be the most technical singer and needs to work on his enunciation but the tone and quality of his voice is unique and I love it.

    So far I am team Heejun all the way and it is purely a personality vote.
    Not the fairest method of choosing for whom to vote for but this is entertainment and he entertains me. A dry sense of humor will always get my attention and that "mostly water" last night after Ryan asked "What are you sweating?" bought him a season's worth of votes from me.

    I don't think I've seen enough of anyone to call them an early favorite of mine. I'm not sure yet about Philip Phillips and I'm even a Georgia boy myself. It will be interesting to see how he does in the different genres of music he'll have to sing. I do like Baylie Brown, but I'm not sure it has a lot to do with her vocal talent, at least not yet. :)

    For my love of Phillips came right from his audition and his exact replication (unknowingly I assume) of Dave Matthews, my favorite musician in the universe. It's like Dave reincarnated but Dave isn't dead yet. :)

    And I agree about Heejun's personality. He won me over early on and then sealed the deal with his ranting about cowboys ending it with "even Dallas Cowboys" ha!!

    We're pulling for Reed Grimm at our house.

    Mostly because my three year old, Reed, is excited whenever he's on. :)

    He's whiney and obnoxious, IMHO. He didn't stand up to the cowboy but just talked trash behind his back.

    That's one way of looking at it. Remember this is reality television and Idol LOVES to draw out the drama.

    I was surprised Lauren Gray got cut.

    Two of my favorites that made it through last night are

    Reed Grim - Probably too quirky in his musical tastes to go deep
    Jen Hirsch - She has consistantly impressed me.

    Phillips, I question his versatility. He is very good at what he does but will he be a one trick pony?

    Perhaps. I don't see him winning but I just want him to get enough exposure to get something going.

    And Reed Grimm, people? REALLY? Ugh. He annoys me so bad, I want to turn my TV off when he's on.

    I really like Heejun.

    He's the NYC kid, so I gotta root for the home team!!!

    Agreed on both counts. Jessica Sanchez is my pick to win the whole thing right now; she's come out of nowhere in the past couple of weeks, and her voice is simply amazing.

    My hometown kid DeAndre goes to my old high school. They rarely show him though, I think he made it this far last year.

    I'm glad the cowboy is gone too. While some Country Music stars are a$$ hats like that, most of them are not!

    Heejun, not my favorite, he's ok. He's funny, but he sounds like he has a lisp when he's singing, I can't get past that.

    Phillips, I like him.

    I'm getting the two country music girls mixed up in my head, but I like them both, sad they both didn't make it through. We'll find out tonight if the third country music girl makes it. And I'll get their names right soon, I hope!

    Reed, he's wierd, but I like him... I think. He's just so wierd. I told my husband last night, he has the face that might get cast in some evil movie or show as a serial killer. I'm in no way saying he is. Just something about his face or his eyes. At any rate, I like his music! :)

    Watching last night. I already knew the top 24 but it's been fun seeing them get there. I wanted to mention that I also like Creighton Fraker despite his oddness and wacko name.

    totally annoying.

    - I think he would be better suited to being on the show GRIMM.

    me?
    rooting for Colton Dixon.

    I think there are a LOT of good people this year, and a lot of different styles.

    It's going to be interesting to see how this plays out.

    If they bring that cowboy kid back, I may shoot myself...

    I couldn't believe when they said they were bringing a guy back and he was one of the people they were choosing from. Out of the 4 guys, I'm really hoping it's David Leathers Jr. I like him far better than the other 3. And I hope they don't bring all 4 back to the stage when they reveal the winner. I don't want to see another sobfest by Jermaine (if he isn't chosen). He has a good story but I honestly don't think he has the range to be included. But I'd still rather see him win than either cowboy guy or Keyser.

    I really like Colton too. I liked him last year and was unhappy that he didn't make the cut. I feel bad for his sister though considering he wasn't even going to audition this year. Hopefully the stylists will remove that god awful skunk crap from his hair.

    I'd put money on it being Johnny Keyser. JLo just loved him. "you know you're going to be a star, right?" blech. I'll take either of the two that are not cowboy or Keyser.
