    Greetings ya'll!

    Well the show kicks off with baby pics and Simon was sooo cute. Ryan looked like a Louie Anderson/chucky love child as a kid. The wardrobe for this entire show was obviously hijack by some leather clad dominatrix or the same person that did the costumes for Mad Max. There was waaaay too many weird leather outfits. Paula was actually off the sauce tonight and made some really good comments!

    DWD: OMG his creepy stepford family is making me ill. Once again he looked a little puffy or like he'd been hitting the caitering truck too hard this week. The arrangement was really weird on this song. The performance was channelling Danny's inner Taylor Hicks(NOOOO!). The hand movements and dancing screamed soul patrol, yuck. The vocals were solid as usual, but I was kinda bored thru the whole thing.

    Krissy Kermit aka Hal Sparks Monkey boy: Wow another terrible song arrangement! Krissy got up there with his guitar and tried an uptempo song this time, but it totally failed. Kris tried to bring the funk to this song, but the only funk Kris has is maybe his socks or dirty underwear. KK is about as a funky and hip as hammer pants with plaid suspenders. The whole thing seemed a bit forced at times. The band and the crowd stole the show for sure. Speaking of crowds what was with that? I saw a whole bunch of chicks which was expected, but then there were like 3 guys grooving along. It seemed a bit...um....weird and gay.

    Merkin Rounds: WTF was with the outfit. They had Merkin sportin' her Tina Turner Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome look or maybe a biker bar tramp? I don't know. Merkins' Merkin was looking a little flat on one side, like she slept on it or something, but oh well. Her hair looks so much better now After tonight I realized that I really cant stand her voice. She needs vocal coaching or to bring it down a peg. The song was off key, note, tone, octave, everything. It was just a mess and all over the place.

    Anoop Slumdog: I love me some Anoop. He reminds me of a cool guy I probably would kick it with. I am totally distracted by his bert eyebrows. The shirt they had him in was like something a tacky, dorky college kid would wear. Lime green is never, ever a good look on anyone unless it's 1984. Anoop laid down some sweet vocals this time. Good job.

    Blind Scott AKA Wolverine AKA little Orphan Annie: O.K. how in the hell could Scott be a train Engineer? Did I miss something, he's blind!!! Scott got up there with his guitar, which I didnt know he could play. He sings yet ANOTHER snoozer song meant for the geriatric crowd. His performance was terrible. The guitar playing was aweful and it seemed as if he was just strumming along with the beat. He singing was wobbly and off note the whole time. Scott's creepy dead behind the eyes look had me reaching for my rosary. Please America, put him out of his misery.

    Allison aka Pig nose or Treasure Troll: Wow, Allison even has a quirky weirdo mom, sweet! Allison has personality. She is a bit off and possibly really shy and ackward. I like that about her. She reminds me of myself. I hated the outfit they put her in. I didnt know if she yet another member of the Idol Military or she was a biker skank going hoing with Merkin Rounds! It was a great performance and for somone so young she sang it like she meant it!

    Matt: Thank god Matt wore a hat tonight. That pimple/eye on his forehead was getting to be distracting. Once again leather makes an appearance and Matt looked like some leather jacket wearing Hobo. I thought he should have been on the corner Doo Wooping for change. I was glad he left the piano alone and just sang his butt off. It was a good performance.

    Adam: Adam said on his video that he liked to dress up as a kid, wow that's a shock...not! After all the leather outfits I just knew Adam was gonna appear in buttless chaps, shirtless, and a cute leather hat! Sadly, he was just sporting a fugly light grey leather jacket. He sang a fav song of mine that I had no clue it was done many years ago. I just remember it from the Gears of War commercial. I didnt get the strange dark lighting. It was as if he was singing in a closet(no pun intended!) or about to be abducted by aliens. The vocals were o.k. and good on some parts, but when Adam goes nut punching high i'm not feeling it at all. I don't get why the judges go crazy over him. It was good, but not jaw dropping great. I prefer his performance during mowtown week.

    I think Allison, Scott and LIL will be the bottom three.

    I like that Adam is dressed up as one of the angels for the school play. Also, "Mad World" is also used as one of the tunes for the "Donnie Darko" movie, did you know that?

    Quite an interesting night! When Danny first started singing, I was thinking: yeah, this could turn out ok, but I didn't like his arrangement of the song, so it fell flat. Anoop Slumdog (as ebony put it), I was thinking the same thing. That's probably one of the reasons he made it thru to AI, is because he's Indian, and that movie was such an underdog performance (and it's great, btw, I own it). As soon as Ryan intro'd Lil's song choice, I knew she was doomed, there are certain artists that no matter what they sing, it just won't turn out well.


    I was paying attention to Kris' parents to see which one gave him his mouth, but I couldn't quite tell. When I was watching him sing, his mouth reminded me of the Joker's mouth, it has that really weird creepy look to it. Scott put me to sleep. I did like Adam's performance (it's a good thing I was taping Fringe...cuz I would've missed it). I liked his back story, and he was a cute kid. The baby pictures were cute, Paula's wasn't really that baby, and Ryan's was cute, and his comment about Kara just takin' a poopie that was so hilarious. The only comment for Adam was the standing O by Simon, the show had runneth over at that point, and none of the judges had time to say anything. And if anybody watches Fringe, the Observer was in the audience, how cool is that?

    One of the best things of the night for me was that my DVR chopped off the last performance, Adam

    Yeah, I'm just not ever gonna be a fan of his for mainstream music...Theater maybe.

    Top 3, for me, were Allison, Matt & Danny

    Bottom 2...Hate to say it but Lil' is on the bubble...Shame as she clearly can sing and the judges pretty much echo what I think on her...She just came off bad, again...Scott

    I sure hope those predictions are wrong.

    Kris is at the bottom!

    If he is the one to go, do you think the Judges would use the Save on him ??

    i thought it was a very interesting show last night. i thought danny did okay. that for sure was not his greatest performance but he is not going anywhere. kris did not do so well last night. he is one of my favorites and he has been doing very good in this competition. when he sang aint no sunshine, i thought he could make it very far but he chose a strange song and i can seeing him going home. lil had her 4th bad performance in a row and she was one of the ones i had high hopes for. she did great during her semifinal perforamnce and pretty good mj week but now she is choosing the wrong songs for her and it upsets me when someone like lil who has great talent continues to mess up. she needs to believe in herself because if she continues to do bad and goes home, i dont think the judges will save her. anoop is like a yoyo isnt he. one week he is up and another he is down. i liked his performance. it was one of my favorites of the night. i honestly dont think he should be in the bottom 3 but you never know what will happen with the results. scott is so funny and a great man. he is such an inspiration and i am so glad that he gets to go on tour but i think it is his time to go. he will probably last another week but i dont think he should. i would not want to see kris go after such a great performance last week. i really like scott and i hope he realizes how inspirational he is but this should be the end of the road for him. even though i know it wont be. allison did a good job. i wont say it was great. she is not up to the level of other female singers like carrie kelly melinda jordin and many others but she does not deserve to be in the bottom 3. matt was great. great vocals and great song choice. unless something strange happens, he will safe but i thought he would be safe after he sang lets get it on and you know what happened that week. adam was the best of the night by a country mile. he is doing so good in this competition. i feel as though adam should win but i think danny will win. the bottom 3 should be scott lil and kris but i think it will be kris scott and anoop. scott should go but i have a feeling kris is gonna go.

    First of all, I love Danny, Scott, and Kris. They are the best in the competition. However, I was disappointed with Scott's performance last night. I know this song and it was very choppy and he could have done better. Hopefully if he's in the bottom, the judges will save him

    Adam's performance last night appeared to me to be like a goth porn star with no singing ability whatsoever and need to, as Simon has said to many contestants "pack (his) bags" Also, Anoop is a joke and needs to go too

    Uh sweetie Lil Merkin Rounds is not on a bubble, that's her ass...

    I totally agree about Adam. For theatre I love him, but I'm sorry when Screechy Mcqueen makes a CD I will cover my ears and run. I didnt know Mad World was on Donnie Darko, but then again that movie is an overrated, over hyped cult favorite for God only knows why. I was bored within the first 5 minutes of that movie and by the end I felt like I was on an acid trip.

    Dial Idol has Krissy Kermit Hal Sparks Stroke Mouth at the bottom! YESS!!!!!!!

    i hope the week eight thing doesn't happen like it did last year with michael johns. for some reason, i have a bad feeling about kris allen going home, especially now that scott is the new VFTW pick. which if kris did, i would cry. hysterically. because this guy is top 3 material. just like michael johns was imo. hopefully if this is his week, the judges aren't stupid and give him the save.

    otherwise, i hope it's scott or lil.

    oh, and seriously. don't trust dialidol. it said ju'not was going to be in the top 12. so yeah. give up people.

    If Kris faces elimination, I think the judges will need to pull a save. While not my fave, he's definitely worthy of the Final 4.

    Honesty, I dont see what u guys see in Kris. He is a bit bland and has no charisma. He is really hot by default cause compared to the other guys on the show he is super smexy! I dont like Flamebert, but he has charisma, looks, can sing and has the potential to be a star. Kris's career will go down the road of Michael Johns, Constantine, Bo Bice, Chris Richardson and all the mediocre previous AI contestants. He will come out with some Jason Miraz or John Meyer type boring a** album then in a few years people will be like who is that?

    I dont know why people even bother to vote cause we all know Adam has been pimped since day one and the final two will be him and Dopey Gokey. We need a real star to come from AI and to me Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Fembot Underwood are the only two to really have success commercially and artistically. I love Daughtry, but having one great post Idol record doesnt cut it for me. You need to be more than just one hit record. The first album being a success is almost a given for any AI winner cause of the marketing and pimping any AI winner gets after the show. Yeah, cook went Platinum but i'm waiting for his second album to hit and to see if people still wanna buy his stuff after the popularity dies down.

    For the most part DialIdol is very accurate. They have a few hiccups here and there, but when it comes to accuracy they have been spot on 90% of the time.

    a lot of people think it will be danny and adam will be the final 2. i think adam will go out in a shocking elimination at the final 5 or 4 or 3 and danny will beat matt or anoop in the finale. every year there is a shocking elimination and this year i think it will be adam.

    Although I don't like Adam, I do think he will go far in the competition. But I think there is a possability of him being in the bottom three tonight because of the DVR recordings being cut off. People won't be able to vote for him if they didn't see him perform. And since he was at the end no one saw the number to vote for him either, except for the people who watched it live.

    Also, I do like Kris, but he isn't my favorite. He would be in my top 3, but Allison is my favorite.

    U might be on to something. Especially after Bill O'Reilly on Fox practically outed Adam on his show, which was greatness btw! Too funny. I think maybe Adam might camp it up even more and have some turn against him, but then again I could be wrong. I still think he could win it all. I predict that Matt will be in the final 3.

    Danny- He had a nice vocal, but I thought the arrangement was a complete and utter mess. I didn't get it at all.

    Kris- It was like he was overshadowed and eclipsed by everything and completely snuffed out. In addition, what the hell was he singing? Out of the vast 80's library, he chose something relatively obscure.

    Lil- I was very disappointed in her copycat performance. Simon was spot on with his critique. She was a second-rate act copying everything from the walk and the mannerisms and the song was just too big for her. Every week, she says she'll do more, but we've heard her cry wolf one time too many. I'm afraid she'll be going home.

    Anoop- Really good vocal and picked a great song! One of my favorite performances of the night. He's getting better every week! It's about time he started living up to his potential.

    Scott- Even though he stepped away from his mental crutch, he just doesn't have the chops for this competition. He's a decent singer with a very small range. He SHOULD be going home, but he'll probably ride the sympathy wave again and stick around for another week or so.

    Allison- This girl is great! What's killing her is she doesn't look like a cheerleader or glamour queen. If she were really attractive like Megan, she would get the most amount of votes on a weekly basis... It's too bad.

    Matt- I thought it was pretty good, but not jump up and down spectacular as the judges made it seem.

    Adam- Another great, stand-out performance. What more can you say? When it's all said and done, Allison and Adam should be the last contestants standing.

    The bottom three will be Lil, Kris and Scott with PROBABLY Lil going home.

    I think KA is hotter than AL but someone like 90210rox will say AL is hotter than KA. It all depends on your taste. And Since Danny and Adam will be in the top 2 theres no point in wishing for KA to get higher up or hope he stays on? So basically no one should vote for anyone besides DG and AL ever? Thats kinda stupid, whats the point of the competition then? I thought Allison would be top 3 material, but she keeps getting into the bottom 3 lately, so I shouldnt vote for her to keep her on because of AL and DG? What if no one voted for Cook last year because of all the pimping David Archuleta got? He wouldve never won.

    Give it some time! DC just released his album in like November or something and Daughtry released his not too long ago either. Goodness, they cant just crank out records like that it does take some time.

    Last night was a complete turn around for me! I'm normally a big fan of Danny Gokey who did do well last night & Kris Allen who, IMO, was a disappointment. I thought his song choice was weird. Usually, I don't enjoy Allison Iraheta but last night her choice of "I Can't Make You Love Me" was perfect for her & I really enjoyed it! I'm also not the biggest fan of Adam Lambert's but as soon as he began singing "Mad World" I said he was going to win (the whole competition) with that song! I really liked it, much to my surprise. I even voted 10 X's for him & I've never given him a vote in the past! So last night was 1 big surprise after another for me! I agreed with the judges comments with all the contestants too except for Matt Giraud. They loved him & for some reason I didn't. However, I think it will be Lil Rounds, Anoop Desai & Scott MacIntyre in the bottom 3 with Scott going home based on last nights performances.

    Okay last night overall was okay, not as great as the past few weeks.

    Danny"Dead Wife Pimp" Gokey starts off the show as he sings Stand By Me, the Mickey Gilley version. In the beginning it starts off slow and then it goes all jazzy. I agree with Randy that the arrangement wasn't all that great and with Simon that the beginning wasn't that strong but it was terrific towards the end. He was pretty good for the first one up.I really don't have to say it but I will anyways; he's is obviously going to be safe tonight.

    Next up is Kris"Exciting as Cardboard" Allen. He chooses All She Wants To Do Is Dance and stands on the weird part of the stage surrounded by all those girls screaming and flailing their arms. Man must his wife been angry lmao. Anyways, I think that he chose the wrong song and the instrumental part kinda took over the singing. But whatever I still like him. After the critique from the judges, he may be in trouble tonight. Uh oh, according to Dial Idol he's dead last. The judges might end up using that save on him if he ends up going home because the past few weeks he was awesome. But we may never know, I mean the judges didn't use the save on ALexis.

    After Kris was Lil "Big Butt" Rounds. Her mother clears up the fact of her real name being Lil and how that's not her stage name. Interesting. She sings What's Love Got to Do With It by Tina Turner. What's there to say, that was horrible karaoke like Simon said. No doubt she will be in the Bottom 3.

    Anoop"Noop Dogg" Desai takes on True Colors and judges seemed to like it. He apologizes to Kara for over reacting to her comment last week. Simon says he didn't have to. It seems that his voice is much nicer when he sings ballads than those up tempo songs he likes singing more butthat's just him. He did okay but he may be in the Bottom 3 tonight.

    Ah Scott"Pink Pants" MacIntyre takes the stage with This Search Is Over. I have 10 words, I HATED IT SO MUCH, HE NEEDS TO GO HOME!! Unlike Kara I can count lmfao. OMGEEE he is horrible, he is so boring to me. No doubt he's in the Bottom 3.

    Allison"Troll Doll" Iraheta wow I love Allison, she's great. She sang I Can't Make You Love Me. This song worked with the quality of her voice, and like Paula said it wasa ballad kinda but had an eerie tone to it. Simon said her personality wasn't shining through like the others, wtf she seems fun enough I mean last week she gave Megan a CAW CAW lmao. Sometimes I just don't get Simon. Hopefully she isn't in the Bottom 3 this week.

    Up next is Matt"Justin Timberfake" Giraud. He decides to sing Part Time Lover. For me his performance is just bleh I don't get the hype about him. The judges gave him short and stabby comments. They were all good; he's not gonna be in the Bottom 3.

    Finally, Adam"Glambert" Lambert closes up the show with Mad World. Now that was brilliant. He's fabulous, we just stop right here and crown him the AI8 winner. SIMON GAVE HIM A STANDING O!!! Wow I don't think he ever gave anyone a standing ovation in Idol history, thats tight.

    So thats sums it up, we have Kelli Pickler and Flo-Rida performing tonight.

    I miss Megan lmfao she was entertaining and now she has flown the coop for good. So until next time CAW CAW!!
