  • Chris is good when it comes to making a song his on, cold chills. Now that is the sign of a good singer. Taylor, now that he is moving and singing again welcome to the show. job. Someone tell Katherine her lyrics. Not the best show, way off.moreless

    Elvis, where was he at last night. All I saw was Chris, Taylor, Elliot, and Katherine. Now that it is getting farther into the competition the sparks start flying and the talent comes out. Chris definetly turned Elvis into the great and talented rocker that is in his soul. Best performance of the night. Taylor, way to dance. Now that you are back into the groove push just a little harder, and work a little more on the singing and then add the dancing. I prefer a good song, than a good performance, and a desent song. Elliot same old same old. Good like always, did his magic and just let the music come to him. Elliot will be the one to watch now. Katherine. Need I say more. she needs to learn the lyrics and try not to scream so much so that people can understand her. Katherine will probably be the one to get the boot after that. But all in all, the guys have done it again. And the girl needs just to try harder, and just have fun.moreless

    I loved last nights show. Elvis Presley is an american icon.

    I thought they all did very well. In my opinion Taylor did the best. I loved both songs he had chosen.he has an amazing style. I love the grey hair! I dont know what Simon is thinking I love taylors moves. He\\\\\\\'s genuine. I would buy his records in a heart beat.He\\\\\\\'s an amazing performer.I thought Chris did okay not his best performances. Elliott did very well also. Kat unfortunately is going home tonight. I like her but the guys are doing better then she is.I hope it comes down to Taylor and Chris in the finals.

    The judges as always were there disfunctional selves.moreless
  • The Top 4 finalists sing two Elvis songs each.

    Taylor = I liked his Jailhouse Rock performance. It was lively, upbeat, and fun to listen to. I still don't like watching him perform, though. The other song, I didn't quite pay attention to it.



    Chris = I was kinda getting tired of listening to him, but after watching him sing A Little Less Conversation, I started not getting tired of listening again. The other song was okay.



    Elliot = The first song was okay, but I liked the second song (Trouble) better. I still prefer Carrie Underwood's performance, though.



    Katharine = Loved her in the first song, I love watching her have fun. She forgot some of the lyrics but managed to cover it by turning around. The second song was awfully pitchy at too big for her (I agree with Simon).



    Who goes home? Though I'm rooting for her, I kinda have the feeling Kat will get the boot. I certainly hope not, but the males were stronger. Kat's at a disadvantage given that they had a male-theme, and I just hope her fans vote enough to keep her in.moreless
  • Top four in Elvis songs

    What did you expect when you put four talented performers all needing to do two Elvis Pressley songs. You will get some winners and some no so hot imperssonations. That is just what was delivered last night on American Idol. I think I would be planning to go home Elliot if I were you. His days are numbered. I think the other 3 performances deserve to go on. Elliot is not in there class. It is always fun to hear the three judges react like they heard three different performances. I only listen to Simon, though he is often full of it.moreless
  • Okay episode

    Taylor: as usual, mediocore, you know, okay, but not really getting it



    Chris: good performance, he\\\'s the only one you can count on to have a professional performance



    Elliot: Best performance from him ever! I never quite got why people kept saying his voice is amazing until this one



    Katherine: Below her standard. Especially the second song, I agreed with Simon that she tried too hard on this one. Then again, it\\\'s not really fair for her since it\\\'s once again a male singer night. Get a Whitney Houston night and let\\\'s see how these guys do.Worried for her now!moreless
