    Honestly I wasn't impressed with very many of the performances last night. We are losing 7 of them this week anyhow so as long as Phillip makes it, I'm good. I'd really like the top 6 men to be:
    Phillip
    Heejun
    Colton
    Creighton
    Eben (even though he was HORRID last night, I know he has it in him, he was just completely off key the entire song so that could be a ear mic issue, tv issue or band issue too as he's been so awesome up to this)
    Joshua or Jermaine

    I still can't stand Heejun. What's up with the glassless glasses...... and the stupid looks he gives... he just annoys me so much! ;)

    What happened to Eben last night? He is normally spot on and he was off the WHOLE song.... I saw J-lo cringe.

    I am bored with them. I think the frizzy-haired Lenny Kravitz looking kid will win because he's dreamy and sh*t.


    And wow, way to ruin a Phil Collins classic. Whatshisfaceguitarguy made it sound bland and forgettable.



    This show sucks, but I keep watching and complaining because... *shrug*

    I was looking for the lenses in Heejun's glasses and I'm pretty sure they WERE there. They were just non-reflective and very clean!

    I'm thinking Phillip, Colton and Jermaine for sure. Eban was awful and should go home and play with his Legos. The guy with the hair will probably make it for "little girl" cuteness.

    The first guy - with the Sheila E drums - WTF was he thinking????

    Incidentally, I called Jermaine as the one coming back after seeing how disappointed the judges were when they told him he didn't make it. I had already said that if it was the cowboy, I was stopping watching right then and there!

    Oh, and I wasn't impressed with Phillip singing the harms on In The Air Tonight, but his performance was ok.

    The guys were for the most part very strong. Hard to guess who will go home and who will stay based on voting.

    Eben and Heejun were probably the weakest of the night. Also, I understand why people like Phillip but I think his range is very limited. I see myself getting tired of it very quickly.

    I do think the big guy that they brought back is definitely gone.

    Also, add me to the minority of folks who kinda likes Reed Grimm. He is goofy as all get out but I like his jazzier take on songs. He and Phillip are probably the two most unique performers this year.

    I also rather liked the guy who did True Colors.

    I skimmed through it but wasn't greatly impressed with any of them. DMB guy was decent, I liked it, but I'm a DM fan so maybe that skewed my judegement.

    Heejun can't sing, sorry.

    Frizzy hair guy sounded like a girl, a bad girl.

    Eben (young kid) was pretty bad but I think it was just an off night.

    The big black guy they brought back was OK, not great but good.

    I ff'ed through skunk boy.

    And I can't remember anyone else that stands out, good or bad.

    I forgot to mention that I also did not like Deandre. Way, WAY, WAY too much falsetto during his performance.

    And it sounded very thin on that big stage. Other than his big note, which sounded okay, he was just not good for me.

    If he does make it to the final it would be cool to see him on stage with Dave though.

    FYP. :D

    All in all, I found nearly all of them except him decent and not great. Jermaine was marginally the best (I was certain he'd be the 13th), and really it's a dice toss who goes home. I hope the girls do much better, and I think they will. There's more talent there.

    I'd picture something like Phillips starting Ants or WWYS and then Dave coming out after the first verse and then jam the rest of the song out together.

    Reed seems sort of weird and stuck on himself.

    I like Colton, Phil and the guy with the baby.

    Not a fan of the really young guy. I liked the guy with springy long hair before, but hated his performance from this week.

    It's not top 6 guys and top 6 girls any more - now it's top 5 guys, top 5 girls, and three (at least - this is Idol we're talking about) wild cards, so there could be as many as 8 (or even 9, if they want to extend the season to the Tuesday and Wednesday after Memorial Day like they usually do) of the guys in the final group.

    Hated DeAndre. He made my ears hurt.

    Reed was a little weird (even for Reed) tonight but my son and I are still cheering for him.

    I also like Adam and Colton.

    I barely remember any of the performances last night, I was having issues staying awake.

    The one thing I noticed, the more we (my wife and I) thought someone sucked the more the judges seemed to like them.

    Yeah, a couple of their standing ovations baffled me.

    And that statement proves to me you've never actually attended one.

    Well that's true. I guess I assume 1 wild card will be a guy, at least....depending on how well the girls do.
