  • finally gone!!

    I rated this episdoe high because Sanjya is finally gone!! That goof ball of a kid has creaped me out since the first night he sang. SInce then every night he came out with a differnt look to himself like he was trying to be somebody else each week. At first when other people were going home and he wasn't he looked a little upset but then he really got into and I think he started to believe he was going to win! When they annouced that he was the one going home the crowd went wild! I was at home clapping for joy! He's finally gone and we can get down to the real competetion!moreless
  • Sanjaya finally gone!

    I had another show to watch when this episode aired so I went online and found out who got eliminated and I was SO happy. I ran into my mom's room with a huge smile on my face and said that I knew who got eliminated and she immediatly put on a sad face and said Sanjaya? and I nodded. She is a huge fan of his so she was mad. It is about time that he left. I don't why this week he left though. It seems pretty random since he has been bad all season. But whatever! :)moreless
  • It's about time!

    Yes, finally, not only was Sanjaya in the bottom three, but he was voted off! It's about time, really. His so-called singing has been painful for many weeks, and he really should have gone home a lot sooner. It was horrible to have to watch as other singers, who were better than he was, got voted off and he stayed.

    So he's finally gone. Otherwise, there's not much to talk about with this episode, other than... why was Fergie there??? What was she there for? I don't get that at all. Fine, have Martina McBride sing, that's great. She was the 'mentor' for the week. But Fergie? What was that all about?

    I wonder how much she paid them to let her be on the show?moreless
  • The thing that ruined my good day

    I think I can predict the future. I was having a good day, got capris that fir perfectly, got my hair colored blue-black. And I knew "American Idol" would be on. I was nervous from the previous night because Sanjaya did not do well at all. And as a joke I said, "My good day will be ruined because for me, good things never stay. Sanjaya will be voted off American Idol tonight."

    So I tune it. And it turns out he is in the bottom 3. But he's Sanjaya and has a lot of fans for various reasons. He's knocked to the bottom two then. Ryan says his name, and pauses. Whenever he did this when I watched years ago, that person was safe. But no, he went home.

    I was shocked. I even start crying a bit. I didn't want to see Sanjaya go. I adored him. He was very sweet. It's off for me to say he is cute cause he is younger than me, but he was really adorable. That ruined my day.

    But at least I no longer have to watch "American Idol," until the last show to see him make a final appearance. I'm not a fan. I just thought Sanjaya was awesome.moreless

  • NOTES (12)

    • The American Idol challenge asked about which contestant this season was considered the rocker. The options were Brandon Rogers, Stephanie Edwards and Gina Glockson.

    • At the beginning of the show Simon had to clear up an issue. After Chris' performance he made a comment about the Virginia Tech shooting and Simon gave a funny face. Reports came out that he was being disrespectful, however Simon said he had been talking to Paula and the look was directed at her and he did not hear what Chris had said. They showed video footage to prove his point. It also doesn't seem to make much sense that he was trying to be disrespectful, as at the end of the episode the night before Simon spoke on behalf of the judges to give condolences.

    • This was LaKisha and Blake's first time in the bottom 3 and Sanjaya's second and final bottom 3 appearance.

    • The song that the contestants sang in the Ford music video was "I Ran" by A Flock Of Seagulls. The contestants are all dressed up as Spies. Phil and Melinda are seen sitting down at a restaurant with a silver briefcase and LaKisha picks it up secretly. She gets in a car. Through the sunroof Chris and Jordin lift up the case. Blake walks with an umbrella that shoots lasers and cuts the rope holding the case. He runs down the street with it where he trips over a wire set up by Sanjaya. He walks into a building and opens up the case to reveal Ford keys inside.

    • It appeared that in Sanjaya's final preformance on the line where he is supposed to sing: "How about love?" He sang: "other than hair"

    • Sanjaya's shirt said Life is Beautiful.

    • When the final 7 sang "I'm Alright" Ryan was sitting on one of the three chairs and Blake Lewis pushed him off the chair.
