My top 3 picks right now are Danny, Adam, and Lil.

Lucky for me I had our DVR set to record Hells Kitchen after Idol. But because Idol ran overtime Hells Kitchen was cut off with about 3 minutes remaining.

I am really glad that Tatiana is gone. She was a major headcase.

Personal fav's for me are Scott for the guys and Lil for the girls... I just see the emotion POURING out of Scotts voice... and he is the only one doing that this season... and Lil has such a nice voice...

This new system for picking the final 12 is insanely complex. Hilarious. And notice how it gives the judges more power.

I did notice the judges had more power then the past ones... they seem to pick the better ones for some reason... I think it is because they are not stuck on one person the whole time.

Good heavens... I've never wanted to throw something at the TV as much as I've wanted to throw stuff at her. Eeeeegads.

So how did they come to decide on allowing 4 to go through... (since my DVR was among those that weren't set to tape beyond the hour)? Could the judges not decide between two of them, and just allowed them both?

Not sure how or when they decided to go to 13 finalist, But was glad to see The Noobster make it through. It is a very talanted group of singers this year. Providing they all make good song choices it will be a battle. Still Rooting for Danny. But there are a few others that I wouldn't be shocked to see win.

It came down to the last two singers waiting to hear their fate. Megan and Jasmine were already placed into the Top 12. Anoop and Matt stood together with Ryan Seacrest. Simon said something along the lines of "Matt, you're going through." Lots of sighs from the crowd. Anoop started to walk off the stage when Simon said "Anoop. Anoop. We've decided to make it a Top 13. You've also made it"

I like Danny also, but dang, Jorge has a voice too!

I'll be surprised if Danny doesn't win it all. I like Jorge, but I can't look at him without being reminded of Meet the Fockers. Remember the 15-year-old kid that Robert de Niro was insisting had to be Ben Stiller's son? Ironically his name was also Jorge in the movie!

I think Adam has great chance of winning, Danny will probably come in second.
03/25/2009 11:39:19 PM · #37
It is going to come down to Adam, Danny, Allison and I would say Lil Rounds will make the final 4. I think Megan is the next one voted out.

Adam .... all the way to the top ! He can sing me Smoky anyday :)
03/26/2009 07:22:40 AM · #39
Ooo I didnt see this forum before. Great!

I love AI. I knew Adam would win when I saw him in Hollywood. It is no surprise to me to see him do wonderful songs in a wonderful way each week.

Allison will be against him in the finals. Danny will make top 3 to.

Lil Rounds wont last. She sings well but she sings well is all she has. Nothing different about her then a million others who sing well.

Megan is different but to me she hasnt gotten "it" yet when performing. She will go to top 5 I think but then it will be where America gets sick of her unless she pulls out something really great. That is where Adam rocks. He knows how to do something different and new every week to keep your attention.

All of the others I cant really even rememeber so that says it all.

But Adam was so incredibly lousy the week before! You can't do that to Johnny Cash and have people like it. This week was incredible, though.

Lil has the most incredible voice, but she has no idea what songs even suit her. If she could pick her songs well, like Melinda Doolittle, she'd go a lot farther.

Danny is just infectious. He's having such a good time, you just can't help but get into it when he sings.

Didn't like Allison at all in the beginning, but she's sure coming into her own,
03/26/2009 09:40:17 AM · #41
I thought he did that Johnny Cash song pretty good. He showed his range there. Adam is somewhat gothic, Johnny Cash invented Goth so it was a no brainer for Adam to select a Cash tune.

I thought Adam was awesome and HOT last week. He chose the Cash song but did it in another rendition which I have heard before. It was a great choice and I had goose bumps the entire time he sang those high notes. Just because the panel didnt get it - America did. Out of those 34 million votes that are coming in I wouldnt doubt if Adam was getting 30 million of them. He is a shoe in to win.

Danny is great to but its not a voice I havent heard before like with Michael McDonald for instance. He also had trouble this week reaching notes and it just wasnt a believable performance. Each week Adam brings believability and is out of the box. Like Randy says he is very current and I agree with that.

Lil Rounds I havent liked from the beginning. She sounds like a million other lounge and ship singers. Nothing different about her at all or amazing. There seems to be a Lil Rounds on every AI if you ask me who just sings good but that is it. Nothing unique or different.

Allison has the voice to make it. I dont think she has the looks or the stage presents. She is definately green when it comes to how to perform. All she has is the different voice and no stage presents. The opposite of Lil Rounds. Lil has the looks and the stage performance thing but not a "current" type voice.

So I think that is your top four. First voted out will be Lil then Allison then Danny and Adam in the end where Adam will get the deal.

I do think there will be more surprises in the format this year. I think that the runner up will be given a deal to on stage during the finale by maybe a singing star that was watching and owns a record label.

I agree, Although she is a good singer, she is a mear copy of many past Idol contestants dating back to season #1.
Adam, Danny and Allison are going to bring it each week, all 3 have very strong voices and each has their own unique identity. Lil Rounds is missing that key factor. She does have a unique name. But that isn't going to sell records. She is strong enough to make the final 4 however I think Matt will be challenging her for that 4th spot.

I think the bottom 3 tonight will be the next 3 off the show. I think Scott has hit his peak and can no longer match the rest of the pack. I think Megan is gone tonight. Scott next week unless they Do Barry Manilow Songs. Then he might make it one more week.

I agree with all of that. I think Scott is going tonight (if he is the guy who was at the piano with the back up singers). He cant cut it anymore against this crowd. They wont save him either. I think if they save anyone it will be Danny or Adam or Allison. They wont save the others because they know they cant cut it this year against who is there. They know those left will go on tour anyway so they are only going to save the best.

I think Michael will go home tonight, he was in the bottom 2 and he really stank last night.

I don't think Scott ever really had it to begin with. He's a good story, and has a nice voice, but that's just it--nice. There really is no depth to it. His piano playing is awesome, however.

I really wanted to like quirky girl, but she can't change it up much, either. Dualing piano guy seems to be coming into his own. I don't like him, but he is getting better each week.

So who got booted? I missed the show!!!! I can't believe I missed it. Stupid Wii game!
