No Ellen last night. We wondered when she was supposed to start. She talked about Idol on her show this afternoon. She said she just can't be mean,that there is a word for that...."Simon" haha.

I think Ellen starts once they get to Los Angeles. This isn't my favorite part of Idol so I haven't watched. Sorry Seeso.

So since I'm reading this so late, last night means two nights ago?

In that case, the highlight for me was creepy dark framed glasses guy. He was sooooo creepy.

Still, so far this season, no one has really knocked me out as either really good or really bad.

dark framed glasses guy was obnoxious and surprised that the judges minded. But there was 1 very beautiful girl with an equally beautiful voice. I think it was Simon or randy that said she would be one of the top 5. but i don't watch it. tough my wife does.

I have a feeling someone's gonna do a uke cover of Pants on the Ground before today ends. Youtube is already beginning to flood with guitar covers XD

Can't stop singing "Pants on the Ground." I loved that guy...I heard he actually was a civil rights leader in the 1960s and says he didn't go through all that so people could walk around with their pants dragging.

Yeah, pretty cool, eh?

A friend of mine also made the top 24, Crystal Bowersox! So happy for her! :D

I'm getting caught up on Idol episodes on the DVR. Did Crystal sing "Natural Woman" in the first Hollywood episode? If she's the one I'm thinking of, she is amazing!

Alex Lambert, he played, what else, "I'm Yours."

Seeso, that's so cool that you're friends with Crystal Bowersox! She's the hands-down favorite in our house this season. She's got tons of natural talent, and we just love her laid-back persona. Hope she does well on the show!

Oooh I like her! I like Lily too, and one of the other girls. None of the guys have stuck out for me yet.

I normally agree with Simon's judgements, but I disagree, and resent, his comment about people sounding "coffee house" and that "everyone on youtube sounds the same." Yeah, well those people don't have recording contracts, and the public likes them, so he's obviously mis-gauged what people like. And look who America picked last season? Someone who sounds "coffee house!" lol

Woah, that IS cool.

She's my favorite. So glad she was well enough to perform this week.

Also, like Lily.

And the boys ...

I didn't know Alex Lambert was the uke player. He had best performance this week. I'll be rooting for him. He could get rid of the mullet tho.

And I've been rooting for Andrew Garcia since auditions but dude has to step it up. His last two songs were very meh :/

Oh, I loved Crystal last night. I have always liked that song by Tracy Chapman, and she rocked it!

Crystal looks like the one to beat. I have to say.....ELLEN DOES NOT BELONG ON AI! I just skip over her when she gives her critique.

khrome
03-11-2010, 08:06 AM
Crystal is still my fave! Not crazy about the gal with the super curly hair.

I think Ellen's critiques are pretty good, suprisingly. I was worried that she would try to crack too many jokes, but she keeps herself in check. Kara is still annoying as hell, and I think SHE's the one that doesn't belong. I hate how they are doing her hair and makeup like they used to do Paula's too. And she's getting all touchy-feely with Simon. She's like Paula Lite.

Crystal is our favorite.too. We love Ellen and we agree that Kara is still annoying as hell

Ellen is a welcome addition to the show, IMO. I actually liked Kara a little more last year than I do this year, but yeah - she's annoying.

SPOILER ALERT!!




















SPOILER ALERT, I SAID!!









Lilly Scott was robbed. I guess she was too indie? Bleh.

So was Alex Lambert, kind of. I mean yeah, he was nervous and inexperienced, but man - that voice! Really unique and soulful. He deserved to make it in over Tim Urban.

OMG, worst night of eliminations evarrrrrrr!

Lilly ousted over Katie!? WTF. Katie was aawwwwwwful. Ugh, I will miss Lilly. But I think all of Lilly's votes went to Bowersox b/c they probably have the same fanbase.

And Alex *sniff*. He's soooo much better than all the boys in top 12. He was just too nervy during performance but he was improving and now we're not gonna see the progress. He had the most unique voice of the group.

BLAH!!!!

I liked Lilly too. I think it was a bad song choice for her this week. My friends like Katie because of the situation with her grandma. So I think she got sympathy votes. I'm not sure if fanbase figures in because you can vote for more than one person.

We watched Crystal Bauersox last night.
After her performance I turned to my wife and said one word " Wow".
I think she may be the one.

Wow, Crystal's performance last night was one of the best AI performances ever. I think she's got this thing in the bag!

She is amazing, and I just put 2 and 2 together when I watched your video w her last night Seeso! I haven't been following AI too much this year but wooow is she good.

I think Crystal is an excellent performer with a lot of talent, but ...
... if she came on the radio, I don't think I'd listen.
This has happened in previous seasons as well. Somehow, certain people are far more interesting in the context of a competition, but don't translate into radio listen-a-bility.

I'm glad Crystal didn't win, because this means she will have a lot more control over her own career. I found her and Siobhan to be the most interesting ones this season and I'm sure they'll do fine without Idol.

Same here. Just as I was glad that Adam Lambert was free to do what he chose. Still, it makes me scratch my head in wonder.

I haven't watched regularly, but I am most impressed with Crystal - she is going to do something with her talent.
I live near Lee's home town, and it's nice to have a hometown hero and all, but Crystal was the stand out for me.
Now my granddaughter (Crystal also) was VERY delighted with Lee's win.
