What do you all think about Brooke, Paula, etc??
I heard on a few talk shows today that the judges do sit in on the rehersals and make notes on their performances there. I didn't know they were allowed to do that, but I guess since they aren't really judging now, and just being critics they should be able to. That is where the second note was supposed to come from...but, Paula should have been paying more attention. I've heard that she is on prescription drugs for back problems or something, but from the video that they showed earlier in the season, her dancing doesn't look that she has any back problems. But, I love Paula...at least she tries to find something positive about each performance, even if it's just their outfit.

I really like Brooke but I am surprised she made it this far. I think she is too. I still think she will get a recording deal...her style just isn't main stream. I would buy her CD because I love her voice!

I agree about the final. I really like Jason, though. He's really cute and he has that old school Sumblime feel to him. It's going to be a tough week next week, though. I heard them say it was Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, so you know David Cook is going to rock the house. I'm not real sure how Syesha will do with it. It's going to be interesting!!

No surprises for me last night. I expected Brooke to go a week or two ago. Jason should be next. or David A. Both are BORING BORING BORING. I'm no Syesha fan, but at least she tries. Carly was better then all of the above.

David C should win

Wow I agree with everything you said

No surprise to me at last nights elimination, it was time for her to go! Now, I think Jason C. will be the next to go! With that being said, I think it will come down to David A. and David C. in the finals!! IMO
post #216 of 236
Aww, Brooke looked so sad last night.

I'm not crazy about the remaining four. This hasn't been the best pool of AI contestants, and all the interesting people are gone, IMO.

Paula is a nut, but they'll never get rid of her.
post #217 of 236
To tell you the truth, I'm glad that Brooke is gone, just because I'm sick and tired of her breaking into tears every week. Once in a while is OK, but every week I find very tiresome. For some reason I've never liked David A, David C is OK, I guess. Maybe I'm just too old to watch AI.
post #218 of 236
David Cook grew on me and now I think he is the best and hopefully win. That said, if he doesn't win he will still have a career because he has a lot of talent where as David Archuleta will go nowhere even if he does win. The kid needs to get a personality, he is such a dud on stage. It was time for Brooke to go but Jason Castro has overstayed his welcome and should have been gone a long time ago. He is the most boring singer of them all, he and David A. of course.
post #219 of 236
I'll make my opinion regarding tonight's AI short and simple...

David C =

Jason =

Syesha =

David A. =

I'm sure others will disagree, but that's my opinion.

~KK~
post #220 of 236
IMO, David C's first song was terrible. I love David and I love Duran Duran, but come on, you don't even hear people trying to sing "Hungry like the Wolf" at karakoe. The range is, what...5 notes? Even when Duran Duran sang it live in concert it was awful. That is a "studio only" song! VERY bad choice in my opinion. His second song rocked though!

Syesha was awesome tonight!! I loved both her songs, but her first was her best! I'm glad she's finally got rid of the "cutesy" look and started acting and dressing like a diva.

Jason...aww, poor Jason. I really like him too, and I think he will have a career in his own style, but his arrangement of "I shot the Sherriff" was just too strange, and with forgetting the words for the second song...I'm expecting him to go.

David A. I'm not a huge fan. I was in the beginning, but everything started to sound the same. His first song was great! His second I didn't really like as much. First, it was just another ballad, and in my opinion, he went too far in "making it his own" that if turned it on after the first two lines I wouldn't recognize the melody. But, the judges loved it, so who knows.

Basically, AI IS a popularity contest, which is what is what it is meant to be. They are chosing someone who they think will sell records (oh, I'm sorry, I'm old...I meant CDs ) And to sell, they need the whole package. Talent (which they all have), style, looks and sex appeal. You KNOW if some of the #1 artists in the past wouldn't have gotten this far if they had tried to start on AI. I could just see Simon saying to Elvis (just for an example) "That was a nightmare!"

So, basing it on those factors, I think Syesha may be a finalist. Hopefully the other will be David C. Jason, I'm afraid will be going.

lol

I thought David C is my favorite byt he was just alright tonight. First song not so good, I didnt really get the second song, there werent very many words...the beginning of it was good though.

Syesha, I didnt really like the first one, its been done too much (especially considering allll the songs she had to pick from), but I liked the second and Im glad she's grown into herself more.

Jason, well the first song wasnt good but I liked the second a lot except for the forgetting the words, I think Bob Dylan is perfect for him.

David A Im not a fan of but he was the best tonight.
post #222 of 236
I agree with you guys. David C's first song wasn't as good, but he made a drastic change up for his second song....which was what we like about him.

Syesha was good tonight, although at one point during one of the songs, she sounded like she was screaming a bit. Don't hate....we have a really good sound system, which can be unfortunate for us at times.

Jason - Last week a rumor was going around that he didn't care anymore. It showed. I did feel bad for him after the Paula fiasco though....

David A. - He's boring to me, but I liked his version of "Stand By Me" better than his second song....

To me the contestants aren't as good as last year....
post #223 of 236
David C was great, 2nd song was better.

Syesha was pretty good.

Jason was awful and really needs to go home tonight!

David A. - still boring me to tears.
post #224 of 236
I think I voted over 100 times for Syesha- if she leaves and Jason stays I am gonig to scream- Jason's performances last night were unforgivably awful
post #225 of 236
I like David Cook the best.
post #226 of 236
David Cook is still my favorite by far. Syesha keeps getting better and better. David A is still blah to me. He gets on my nerves. He reminds me of a Backstreet Boy wannabe. Jason.... I like him when he's doing his genre. I actually liked him tonight except for his horrible mistake. I know he doesn't care any more. He's just there to have fun. It showed. I think he'll go home tonight.

Jason "relieved" to be out. So am I.

I CHEERED when I heard the "good" news! He didn't care anymore, and it showed. I think that's what bothered me most about him: that, and the fact that he's "stuck" on himself. I think he figured he could just keep on sailing by w/o trying, b/c he had a lot of the teeny-boppers votes. A person shouldn't be there if they really don't care. There were plenty who DID care, and should still be there.

It will be real interesting to see who gets the boot next..

I think it will come down to the two Davids, I think that they are the best anyways. But it really doesn't matter to me, I don't have a favorite this year like I have had in the past.
post #230 of 236
I really don't like Syesha. I really hate the word "diva" applied to these screeching little girls nowadays, or any of them that act badly.
The term was originally used to describe a woman of rare, outstanding talent. It derives from the Italian word 'diva' meaning "goddess" or "fine lady"[1]. TIME magazine observed in its October 21, 2002 issue: "By definition, a diva was originally used for great female opera singers, almost always sopranos."
I haven't seen anything like that on AI or MTV, VH1, BET, or anyone lately referred to as a diva.
post #231 of 236
David A. - his choice (Chris Brown) - got my wish of seeing him out of his element, and he didn't pull through *boo* Paula/ producer's choice were boring/ predictable.....maybe dad not having influence backstage this week showed.....

Syesha - not bad/ not outstanding either....very predictable.

David C. - Didn't like Simon's choice, but he did great with what he was given. Stepped up to Simon's challenge. Other two songs were also better than his competition's....best of the night!

Prediction: Two David's in finale....
post #232 of 236
David A - only 1 to sound clear, distinct with lovely tone and phrasing.
Syesha - still shouting, pitchy...should be wonderful on the stage, hope she has a wonderful broadway career.

David C - sometimes takes my breath away, but as my dh said, tonight, each song sounded the same...starts slow, builds to loud shouting rock...was not the best of the night in our opinion.

Doubt David A will win, but I think he's the purer talent and hope he still gets a contract, look forward to how he develops over the upcoming years.
post #233 of 236
None of them really did the best that they're capable of IMO, but I was impressed with David C's rendition of The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face - that's a hard song to sing. David C. hasn't been my favorite this year, but I thought he was the best last night.

I think Syesha's time has come, and the two David's will be in the finals. I'd like to see David A. win the competition, but I think it will end up being David C. At this point, it really doesn't matter to me just who wins, b/c my favs are already gone. I'm just watching it now more out of curiousity than anything else..

~KK~
post #234 of 236
No surprises this week.

I'll be really disappointed if David A wins though. He has a good voice sure, but he's BORING BORING BORING and I can't imagine ANY record he would put out that I would want to listen to.

I'm voting for David C.

Ditto for me
post #236 of 236
David A is talented but I think he's too young right now to be able to handle the fame and stress of winning the Idol competition. He also has his idiot father to deal with. It would be better IMO for David C to win this one and let David A get some maturity under his belt for a future win.
