    For awhile, I've been putting Casey and James as the top two, with Casey just slightly better than James. For last night's performance, I rank James slightly higher than Casey. I really think those two should be in the finale.

    Last night's performance ranking from best to worst, in my opinion:


    James
    Casey
    Lauren
    Haley
    Scott
    Jacob

    Thanks for posting Maui. I went ahead and watched James' performance. I'll watch the others that came afterward tonight when I get home. It will be interesting to see how it plays out since we are getting close to the winner. Without watching the entire show and based on the feel I've gotten so far this season, I'd say:


    Top 3

    James
    Lauren
    Scotty

    Bottom 3

    Casey
    Haley
    Jacob

    I really hope Jacob goes home this week. I'd like to see Haley stick around for a week or two more. I have Casey in the bottom 3 only because I think Scotty's following is much greater, but I guess we'll see tonight.

    Well, yes and no. Either last week or the week before when Haley was told she was in the bottom 3 Casey leaned over to her and whispered "I love you" and it was picked up on his mike. I heard it very clearly.

    This is the first I've heard this, but amusingly Scott went out of the way to say yesterday he considered Lauren like a sister and no romance was there whatsoever.

    By the way, when Ryan joked and asked Lauren's admirer how old he was and then asked Lauren, who's only 16 (implying the other guy was too old for Lauren) I was taken aback, because Lauren looks older than 16 to me. She looks more like a woman than a girl.

    "The boy Lauren brought up on stage during her song was a plant straight out of Central Casting. He exited the studio after her song and met and shook hands with Lauren’s parents on his way out."

    There is part of me that is beginning to think Casey won't make it to the finale 2. He is very eclectic, sometime drifting into genres that are not very popular. I also think he shares part of a voting base with James and I think James may be pulling votes from Casey moreso than any of the others.

    Right now I am thinking the top 3 may be James, Lauren and Scotty. I don't think any of them have ever landed in the bottom three yet. I think Jacob is on his way out this week (he needs to be voted out just for that outfit he was wearing) so if any of those three end up in the bottom three with him then there will be panic voting next week and they may be able to coast to the final three.

    I think the judges overboard praise of James last night and them already saying that he may win it all has solidified him at the top of the heap.

    I hope Casey makes it to the top two, but I at least hope Scotty doesn't make it to top three. He might be the most one tricky pony of them all. Or maybe I'm biased because I'm not a fan of country music. Then again, Lauren is country, and I like her more than Scotty.

    Apparently, Haley was originally in a romance with Stefano, but he dumped her for Pia, and Haley then hooked up with Casey.

    Yes, I read US magazine. :eek:

    The tornadoes pre-empted James's entire performance. And only James. :(

    I will have to come back and watch his performance later. Apparently it was really good.

    Yes, James has been consistently good week after week. Despite that, I think this was one of his best, if not *the* best for him. So when you're already good to begin with, and continue to improve on that, that's a pretty good formula for making it into the finale.

    In a way, it's also nice that somebody with a disability like tourette's syndrome is becoming this successful.

    WOW, Pia seems like she would remain aloof from the house romance. I actually think Haley is much hotter then Pia. Pia seems like she would be a very boring person to hang out with.

    Stefano the playa... I bet the producers were watching the younger kids like a hawk to prevent them going to far.

    The funniest thing was watching the faces of the other contestants when Pia got the boot - everyone looked shocked and upset except for Haley, who looked kinda happy...:D

    I watched it a couple of times to make sure I was seeing it correctly!

    To confirm nyny, according to a viewer's comment,

    "Haley was all smiles when Pia left. It's only when she saw she was on camera that she started to cry.

    Haley was happy to see Pia leave. "

    You can see Haley's reaction at the 1:30 mark.

    We replayed it ten times for the lulz- it was the face of the cat that ate the canary.

    Usually when people are in the bottom 3 and are told they are safe they sheepishly go sit down. Haley always shows emotion and is very happy. I think it's just her maturity level.

    I didn't see it as her being happy Pia was gone, maybe just not crying? Maybe she was in shock and didn't have the normal 'OMGWTFBBQ' face on, but it didn't seem to be a happy face.
