    Kelly Clarkson can still sing can't she? Great guests this week. Zack Wylde? Seriously? He's one of the best rock guitarists of all time. I hope they do more stuff with him. I wasn't a fan of "Heavy Metal" (the song by Hagar) but I sure like the way THEY did it. :up:

    Yes she can - I think she remains my favorite of all the idol winners.

    Scotty didn't mess up anything. The background singers, who where mixed louder then they should have been, didn't keep to his pacing at one point. And this is one of those times when majority doesn't rule. They are background singers, he is the performer.

    The three in the bottom all took Iovine advice. Those that didn't were safe - a pattern? Although I do think Iovine saved Jacob by talking him out of being corny. But extra corny Jacob would have been great TV.

    The best two out there are Casey and James. The worst two of the week I thought were Paul and Stephano, so I thought America got it right this week (for once).

    Pia was pretty good, so I was shocked last week when they eliminated her. But she's not as good as Casey, so if the judges had saved their save for her instead of Casey that would have been worse. The judges were correct to save Casey - I think that was the perfect use of the save.

    That America has actually voted off Casey and Pia is a testament to how stupid the voters are.

    Stephano is way too corny of a singer and he NEEEDS to get eliminated this week.

    By the way, when Casey was deciding between his two songs, and I heard which one he picked, I rejoiced even before he performed it, because I could tell it was the better song. His mentors were full of water when they told him to sing Phil Collins, and it's great that he gets the last laugh, and gets to make them eat crow.

    Also, by the way, when I relistened to Casey's performance, it sounded even better the second time than the first. For this week, Casey had the best performance, hands down.

    On another note, there have been multiple weeks when I thought Haley should have been voted off, and not only was she not voted off, she wasn't even in the bottom three, which reinforced my opinion about the stupidity of the voters. However she did better this week, and deserved to stay for that reason. Not great, but good enough that she should stay. And then her duet with Casey was great... hopefully she keeps up that level of performance quality. She wears too much lipstick though.

    Did anyone notice the guitar player for Rihanna ? Another rocker named Nuno Bettencourt. He was the guitarist for the band Extreme. They had a hit song in the 90's "More then Words". Awesome guitarist.

    I did not know that stupid voters could actually vote someone off. I thought it was a popularity contest where the favorites were voted to continue. Perhaps if you had voted more she would still be there.

    I can't argue with you because you seem to recall it better than I. But I woudl think the "professional" back up singers would have just been keeping up with the music and Sotty fell behind. But, since no one else mentioned it, I am probably wrong. :eek:

    Maybe it's just the fact that Scotty is no American Idol. He's OK at his thing but his thing isn't AI.

    It's equivalent though.. Whomever you're not voting for is whom you're effectively voting off. I can't vote because I timeswitch with my TiVo (not that my vote would have made a difference). No matter; I'm not mad at america's bad voting; I just like to comment on it.

    I don't think it is at all equivalent.
    I think the results would be far different if voting was to choose who would be eliminated.

    I did. He's awesome. Combine that with Zack Wylde and you've got some serious guitar talent up there. If they can get Joe Satriani next I'll be a happy camper. :D

    Side Note: I was surprised how little star power Rihanna has in a live performance. I suppose that's a testament to great editing and good photographers in her videos and photo shoots. She wasn't even that great of a singer. A testament to good sound engineers too.
