    I don't get the James love. All he does is scream and screech to me. Of course, I have never cared for hard rock and that seems to be his genre. I enjoyed Haley, Lauren and Casey this week.

    Jacob sounds like he's singing from his throat, a throat that is filled with phlegm. I just don't get the love for him. He has talent, he hits notes, he holds notes, I don't know why I hate hearing it so much. There was only one of his songs that I really liked. I think it was Georgia in the early part of Hollywood week, but I can't remember for sure. He also doesn't enunciate at all. I hate not being able to hear what words are being sung.

    Paul was, and has been, horrible. He has a unique character and voice, but I just don't really like it.

    Naima was just horrid last night. I liked her sound in the beginning, but most of her performances have maybe been too personal - like she's bringing WAY too much of herself into the songs instead of singing something that would appeal to the many instead of just herself.

    Thia is too young and has no stage presence. She'll be a nice addition to a cruise line.

    Casey did really well tonight. I liked that he sat still and delivered a beautiful song.

    I was surprised that I like Lauren as much as I did. I've constantly thought she was good, but she's never done anything amazing. Not sure this was amazing, but it was really good... especially for a song that has so much special all over it.

    Stafano took a very difficult song (didn't they say that it was written specifically for Elton's voice/range?) and didn't mess it up. I liked it and appreciate that he's listening to the critiques and improving each week.

    Hailey stunned me. I thought that was the best performance of the night and I had tears of happiness in my eyes when she finally delivered what she should have been doing these previous weeks.

    Scottie has a great sound. I really think he would've been better off on some show for CMT, but he's consistently done well and always sounds great.

    Pia always always always delivers. She has an amazing voice and gives me goose bumps almost every time she hits the stage. Like the judges, I wish she'd show more range, but how could she possibly pass up an Elton John ballad on Elton John week? I honestly don't think she could and don't blame her for choosing what she feels most comfortable with.

    I think James is having a blast and each week it shows. He's a showman and he's doing great and he should continue. I really enjoy watching him have fun up there. The yelling when I don't think it belongs is getting old, but that's his thang, so I'll put up with it.

    Casey's change of appearance wasn't radical enough to merit footage of his trip to the barber shop. He looks better, but not all that different. Ryan Seacrest's hair change was more drastic.

    Can we nip the Jimmy Iovine experiment in the bud, please? The mentors were bad enough in prior seasons. Now we have the same one every week? He's terrible. I'm tempted to FFWD through the entire pre-song video package.

    I noticed it was different, but couldn't figure out what had changed. I didn't like it much, but it's normal for me to dislike someone's new hair style until I get used to it.

    Well, that's 2 finalists out of what, 100 now? Not a great comparison. I think the show is pretty much the same now as it's always been.

    Simon checked out way before he left. He threw in some criticisms but he was too busy flirting with Paula and Kara to actually listen to the performances.

    Showing us his advice to the contestants about what to do in their performance often spoils any benefit following that advice would give. It's annoying.

    I can't hear "Tiny Dancer" anymore with out thinking of the Russian defector who was in love with Bailey Quarters.
