So what did you all think of the performances last night? I admit that this is about the time of AI where I start to get a little bored and last night none of them thrilled me. I still like my favorites and would like to see my non-favorites go ASAP (Haley...), but everything else was just ... meh... to me. Maybe it was the song choices. I was hoping for some more real *rock* tunes to come out and it never happened. In the words of Randy, it was "just ok" for me, dawg! At the same time, I think that makes it even harder to predict who might be in the bottom three and go home tonight! I will throw out my thoughts... bottom three will include: Paul, Stefano and Hayley (ok maybe I am projecting). Casey might be in trouble again... I really like him and think he is a cool dude, but I don't know if his style (or lack thereof) is really going to resonate. I'm also curious to see how James' performance fares. I'm not a James fan anyway, but to me, it was just too reminiscent of when Adam Lambert did the same thing with a stripped down performance. But I think Adam did it better.

I finally watched it this morning....

I agree with you most were 'just ok"

I didn't like Stefano, Hayley or Jacob

I did like James last night, like he did something softer.

But like you I was wanting to some good Rock and Roll! I think Paul was the only one to bring it.

I still like Casey and Scott! I no fully on board with Lauren or Pia last night!

I hope the bottom 3 are Stefano, Hayley, Jacob

Yeah I think Jacob is leveling off. I liked him at first, but I feel like I've already seen it all from him. It's funny that you felt like Paul was the one to bring it.... I like him too, but my husband can't stand him lol. For what it's worth, today on the radio I heard that the Idol "experts" (whoever they are) are predicting Paul to be the one to go home! I hope not ... I don't think he will go all the way but I think there are others who deserve to exit earlier than him.

I'm am watching - but I am so bored - I miss Simon - everyone is just so nice - there were a lot of pitch tones - no one really stands out for me

But I will keep on watching.

Wow Meme! You were close on the bottom 3! I know a lot of people are shocked about who went home, but I think it probably makes sense. Pia definitely had a great voice, but I think she didn't really have the performance or personality needed to really make it to the end. However I am left still wondering why is Hayley still there? ARGH!?

A few other things about last night's results show:

*While I get that the judges were "shocked" I think they went a little overboard on the reaction and it kind of bugged me. In the end, it's about the votes so I think it was a little annoying that they were saying it was "wrong". Also I think it was kind of offensive to Stefano.

*Iggy Pop... WHAT!? I appreciate who Iggy Pop is, but I think the whole performance was just terrible and weird.

*Constantine's song was ... not that great, but I do like the way he changed up the song a bit.

Hi Denise ... yeah I agree. I will still watch because I can't help it, but I would like a little more excitement, both in the songs/performances and in the judges. I think Simon often said what a lot of us were thinking! I do like that they are really supportive of these young singers, but it does get boring. I also feel like the shows (how they are put together) seems "off" this year, but maybe that's just me.

I know the Judges were over the top weren't they!

and Iggy Pop.....YUCK!

Yes I was shocked it was Pia! I thought she would make it top 4 if not 3 and maybe even win. But I didn't like her the other night.

someone tell my why is Hayley still there??
