    Well, American Idol is almost over for the night, and Danny just sang, and I was never a huge, huge fan of him, but I thought he was pretty good. Now Adam, I LOVE so much, I think he is amazing. I love how tonight he really played around with the pitches, but didn't drag them out. Well he always does that, but whatever, you get my point right? Anyways, after listening to Gokey, I think that he's trying to pull and Adam, because towards the very end he did this screechy voice thing, and tried to get the band all pumped up. Don't get me wrong, I give him props for his attempt...but still. He doesn't have that range that Adam does.

    What do you think?

    That attempt was terrible, someone should have stopped him. It should be his turn to go now, I like the guy but that was horrible.

    He took a risk, too bad it didn't work out and made him look weird and out of place.

    Well, to me it seemed like he wanted to keep to the original version of the song, so the end was trying to be more like Steven Tyler. I'm a huge Danny fan from day one and I even thought that last note was disastrous. Danny a Lambert wannabe? No way. Just an experiment that didn't work out.

    I dont think he wanted to be like Adam, just more like Steve Tyler that did NOT work out. Im sorry, I hope he goes home. If that was Allison, everyone would be all over her but because its Danny he "just experiented" or "took a risk". Thats not an excuse to me, sorry.

    i don't think Danny is trying to be like Adam. they're two different genre of vocalists. Danny took a risk with a rock song that required a powerful, Adam-like voice that didn't pay off. simple as that.

    He wasn't trying to copy Adam. It's not like Adam is the only singer who has ever screamed in any of his songs. Just because Adam is the only AI contestant who screams doesn't mean anyone else who does that is automatically copying him. I like Danny, but last night he was just horrible. This was one of the few performances that made me literally LOL. I don't want him to win, because I like Allison better, but I still don't want him to go home yet.

    Danny was horrible tonight. There was just no excuse for that. This far in the competition, notes like the last one just aren't acceptable anymore.

    Personally, I'm P.O.ed that he is in the top 3 on a bad performance and Allison is now gone. That is such a mistake!!!!!!!! I swear, if he wins he will be a second Taylor Hicks. MISTAKE!

    I have never hated a contestant more than I hate Danny Gokey. I have a lot of things to say about him, but I would be in trouble if I posted any. He is just a mistake to the show. I can't believe that Allison left before him...

    I think Danny is great and when he sings like he did the week before he is amazing. Last night was not good but he has been consistant all season. I do think Adam should win though. He is the by far the best!

    It gives me a good laugh to hear all these Adam noobs get way ahead of themselves
