  • After the final 9 contestants performed a country song of their choice, Mandisa had recieved the least amount of votes andwas sent back home.

    OH NO! Mandisa was my favorite and I thought she did good and she deserved to WIN WIN WIN! I usually dont vote until the finally but I guess I should be voting now. At least shell be on the national tour. Along with Lisa, Bucky, Elliot, Katharine, Taylor, Chris, Paris, Kellie, and Ace.
  • Awful...

    This episode, with no doubts, is the worsest episode of American Idol EVER!!! Mandisa just left us all and now, THE best singer of the whole competition, of whole American Idol's history is gone. America did not vote well at all and I am not going to watch it like I used to...
  • based on that night's performance, america got 2 out of 3 right, but send the very wrong person home.

    yes, after seeing the actual show in full i have to lick back some of the things i've spitted out. Paris and Elliot were surprisingly bad on the country night. their voices were below their usual standards, so if votings are based on each night's performance, they indeed deserved to be in the bottom 3. Ace, Kellie and Katharine exceeded my expectations, so again, if the votings are based on that night's performance only, they deserved to be in the top 8. BUT, i stand with my earlier opinion that MANDISA. WAS. GREAT., and that BUCKY SUCKS. Bucky should've been the one to go...his performance had been extremely uninteresting. Mandisa may not be the best that night, but I can see nothing wrong with her vocals, especially considering that country isn't her element. Paula WAS right: she can sing the phone book. I just can't believe that the judges trashed her. Goodbye Mandisa...the competition isn't going to be the same without you.moreless
  • omg mandisaa noo!

    the worst votation that i saw in ai.... how the people choossse image forr over the talent!. i love paris and mandisa they have the best voices of the 8 team, mandisa show us what its mean singg almost in all her performance!. how could be \"Face\" young save and paris no!. i must say it kelly should be in the bottom 3 (with elliot and face) she is absolutely lovely, but is a little weak in the interpretation.

    its a true fact that we never can be suree that the best singerr will be the next AI...moreless
  • Of what one bad performance can do

    I felt badly for Mendisa for getting voted off. She surely wasn't the worst singer overall on the show. I felt if you looked at the other performances of Mendisa this one last some what off performance should not have lead her to be voted off. She has always done stellar performances up until this past week. What is the real reason she was voted off? Could it have been she didn't fit the American Idol image? Could it be that people forget the past weeks performances? These are questions that run through my mind as I watch the show. But regardless I will still watch next week.moreless
