  • Good night.

    Broadway. That can't be good.



    Syesha Mercado "One Rock And Roll Too Many" I loved it. Absoloutly perfect. Her best performance yet (lied, tied with I Will Always Love You) 10/10!!!!!!!!!



    Jason Castro "Memory" Horrible. From perfect to horrible. I hated it. Not one thing good about it. 2.3/10



    Brooke White "You Must Love Me" 1 homerun then 2 strikeouts in a row. Ugh... she started than stopped than started again and the vocals still weren't that good. I like her emotion though. 7.3/10



    David Archuleta "Think of Me" He did his usual David good. He's becoming predictable. I knew he would sing a slow song. Just crown him the winner already and make the teeny-boppers cry. 9.3/10



    Carly Smithson "Jesus Christ Superstar" Loved it!!!!!!! Carly's back with a strong performance. She did fabulous. I also like the shirt. 9.7/10



    David Cook "Music of The Night" Wow! Great job by Cook. I love it when he performs very last. Last time that happened was Billie Jean. The performance was fantastic!!! 10/10!!!!!!



    Bottom 3: Jason Castro, Brooke White, and David Archuleta

    Bottom 2: Jason Castro and Brooke White

  • Revealing: as in we see producer tinkering of results from a BS show in order to garner more viewers AND call/text in votes by creating an "Oh MY GOSH, can you believe he/she go voted off- we better vote next time" paranoia. ABSOLUTE CRAP!moreless

    That we were fed the drivel that an amazing singer like Carly Smithson would get voted off (and Saisha was in the bottom as well??!! LMAO) whilst Brooke "Could I Be More Insincere" White and Jason "Fidel Would Hate My Voice" Castro stay on as if they had MILLIONS of fans is an absolute farce!!! I went from loving this show while suspecting some foul play in the "voting", to hating it and KNOWING they fix results for dramatic affect. Shame on you "American Idol". I truly hope the viewers begin to detect this subversion and do the right thing: tune out.moreless
  • wow...that was bad...

    5.5
    I'm not a big fan of musicals, but the songs are great...well, I didn't hear "great" in this episode. The contestants killed the songs! Jason just...wow...he was terrible! I don't understand him. Yes, he's adorable, but that's it. He's unique, but has no major vocals or musical sense. He's terrible. Brooke just fumbled bad and the others were mediocre at best. I love David Cook, and he got good reviews; I thought he sang well, but I just thought it was really weird that he was singing that type of song. I hope Idol never tries musicals again. Yikes. Overall, just a nightmare episode.moreless
  • Actually a really good episode with 4 great performances.

    Syesha started the night. I thought she was awesome! Best performance of the night, my favorite performance from her, and maybe even one of my favorite performances of the season! I hope she doesn't go home, I voted for her a lot! 10/10



    Jason sang Memory and it was actually pretty bad. I didn't like it, and hopefully he's gonna go home tonight. I wish he would've picked a different song. 5.5/10



    Brooke was next and she messes up in the beginning and started over. Yeah that was a pretty brave thing to do, but still it kinda ruined her chance of getting to the next round. Bottom 2 hopefully. 7.1/10



    David Archuleta sang a slow song, like he usually does. I really liked it, but I want to see him sing another upbeat song next week. He was definitely good enough to get by to the next round. 9.1/10



    Carly sang an upbeat song. It was great! Definitely my favorite of hers along with Come Together. Definitely, hopefully safe. 9.4/10



    David Cook was last. I'm not a big fan of his and I think he's overrated. But, this performance was great. Really, I changed my mind about him. 9.1/10



    1. Syesha

    2. Carly

    3. David C and David A (tie)

    5. Brooke

  • Not bad, well some of it was.......LOL

    I liked most of it. Brooke and Jason were disasters. Over all I think only Syesha picked the right song for her. In case anyone questions my credentials in this area, I have over 10 years experience in musical theatre.



    These would've been my choices for them.



    David Archuleta - Music of the Night.

    Jason Castro - Any dream will do

    David Cook - The Lady's Got Potential

    Syesha Mercado - I agreed with her pick but I would've prefered to hear her sing "Memory".

    Carly Smithson - Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again

    Brooke White - With one look



    But I did enjopy seeing Idol do a show like this, I hope they do Sondhiem next year.moreless
