I think having a consistent team of mentors is a big help.

I was gonna say the same thing Mercedes. I had to restart my computer b/c it got so jammed up.

But pretty much agree with your top 3. Would put Haley further down. And the rest just blend together for me

I love, love, love Naima….what is all the hate towards her? She’s beautifull, unique and exactly what we need after the last few years of STALE Idols!!! And though my name sounds ethnic…I AM WHITE!!!

Mercedes I completely disagree with your order. James first? No way…I like him – he’s one of the best – but he was NOT the best tonight.

So… first the bad. Thia, Stephano, Namia, or Paul could all go home. They were bad, just bad. One of the judges said Thia picked just the right song….WHAT!? I completely thought the opposite.

Now, I’m going from wondering why Haley doesn’t get any love to giving her my full fledge support and say I think she is the best girl in the competition. Yeh, better than the other one trick pony one. She is great and has a wonderful, new, and different voice. Everyone likes to talk about how quirky Paul is. Well yeh, I guess he is but the problem is he sucks too. Haley is every bit as quirky but she’s actually good.

Casey and James were the next best. They were both great. I totally agreed when the judges (i think Randy) said that James just has fun up there. He truly does and takes you along for the rockin ride. I still think James wins this.

I’m tired of Scotty. I saw that final baritone note coming a mile away and it made me hate the entire performance because of it. Every week it’s the same thing no matter what the theme is. The sooner he’s voted off the happier I’ll be. Well…. at least after the worst 4 listed above and I actually might want to hear one of them sing more instead just so I’ll be a little bit surprised.

Pia, see above Scotty comments except I do like her a little bit more.

That’s all I got for now.

Kiki, dear Namia was not very good tonight at all. She was just off throughout a lot of that song AND she completely changed it up. So she took whats a great song, changed it to fit another genre (and from someone who actually enjoys reggae it didn’t work), and didn’t do a great job of it? Kiss of death, she’s probably a lock to go home. And I was a fan of hers at the start.

Oh yeh, I knew I forgot one. Lauren, this was the first time I’ve actually enjoyed her. But then they let her talk again after the performance and my opinion of her just tanks. I’m sorry, she is just too dumb for me to really get into.

Another I forgot, Jacob. He just sounds like an old lady sobbing when he sings to me. Bleh.

Rx – no argument on the bottom group. Or the fact that Scotty and Pia have run their course.

But I just cannot bring myself to jump on the Haley bandwagon. I don’t think her voice is bad at all. I just can’t stand watching her try to use her cleavage or legs and “I’m trying so hard to be sexy” appeal to get the attention. It just makes me roll my eyes instead of listening to her sing.

Agreed. Everytime he sings I get images of Eddie Murphy chanting “hercules, hercules, hercules”.

As always, I loved Haley!

I didn’t think there were any bad performances tonight (and I’m usually a tough critic). I wasn’t in love with Jacob’s overly dramatic faces or with Naima’s pitch, but I didn’t fast forward through their performances like I normally would have….

Haley was by far, the best performer of the night. No one was even close.

I totally disgaree with RxDawg;s comment on Thia. She deserves to stay, She’s got good voice quality! Period! Wrong decision by the judges to save the bearded guy…well he wont last to make it to the top five for sure.
