Finally! An entertaining episode where almost all of the performances were worth watching! The group inspired me to vote last night.
- Michael Johns "Dream On" = excellent!
- Syesha hit the high notes, but I was not a fan of her Fanstasia song choice.
- Jason Castro knows how to pick 'em. Great song choice and performance!
- Kristy Lee stepped it up. Her looks are what will keep her in, but her voice actually proved to be excellent this week.
- David Cook was good but sadly not as memorable as weeks past.
- Carly picked a great song, but I am just not that into her.
- David Archuleta will win over even more fans than his already huge following. It was the first song of his I have really liked in a while.
- Brooke continues to be all sunshine and puppies. Clearly she is all about being happy and did her best Gwyneth Paltrow lookalike impression paired with that soft sweet voice. It's marketing gold.
To read a more in-depth recap click here  and don't forget to vote off who you think will be sent home . Since it's Idol Gives Back week, we're thinking they may not do the elimination round like last year, but if there is a bottom three then I am guessing Carly, Syesha, and David Cook (sorry, buddy, but your time has come to feel the heat). The real mystery of the night isn't about who will be booted off but what was going on with Paula's boobs. Poor things looked in pain.
