American Idol Season 6 Rockin Bon Jovi

Last night was rocker night and it was pretty clear that this year's AI won't be churning out any awesome-like Daughtrys. We love ourselves a little Bon Jovi so we were psyched to see what was in store for us last night. Little did we know we were still going to be talking about hair now that Sanjaya is gone (thanks to Jordin and Blake).

Phil kicked off the night in what seemed like an okay performance but it was forgotten about by the end of the evening. Jordin killed her chances by screaming Living on a Prayer with the horrible red streaked hair. She should have left that look with Gina who was booted off for a reason. I really liked LaKisha last night and so did Simon based on that big kiss! I thought she rocked the house with Melinda. They both out-shined everyone else but the most talked about performance was beatbox Blake. He updated You Give Love A Bad Name in such a way that I am still confused. Love it or hate it, he will be safe. I predict the bottom three tonight are Phil, Chris and Jordin. Tonight we will lose two contestants. Click here to vote on who you think will be eliminated.

No offence meant, but in my small country - Bulgaria - with only 8 million citizens, we have Music Idol at the moment and there are 6 or 7 boys and girls right now, and I can say with a clear conscience that each one of them can win American Idol with an ease. American Idol contestants this year are average. You can watch some of them (my favourite ;)) here: http://www.vbox7.com/play:e834dad1http://www.vbox7.com/play:cd2a67bf

blake looks SO good with his hair like that! i've always thought he was cute, but between the dark hair, eyeliner, and beatboxing last night he was HOT!chris is so adorable but sadly i think he may leave, although i want him to stay... even if it is for my own selfish mancandy reasons.

I was shocked at how well the overall show was last night. I was a bit skeptical about Bon Jovi night in the beginning but the performances proved me wrong. Melinda as usual was perfection... and regardless of if you liked it or not big credit to Blake for taking the risk and mixing things up!

I was actually pleasantly surprised how this group handled Bon Jovi. Unfortunately my girl Jordin wasn't on top of her game tonight, but I'm hoping her previous performances can carry her through. As far as who I hope to see go home -- Chris and Lakisha, however at this point I think everyone's doing a pretty awesome job and it's anyone's game.

Melinda is awesome. I love that she is humble. I think she's just honest...last night she was up front about not being comfortable with rock music. And when someone gives her a compliment, she takes it to heart and sincerely appreciates it. I think some people think she acts like she thinks she can't sing. (People who can't sing well DO make it through on American Idol. Sanjaya, Chicken Little from last season, etc.) I think she just graciously accepts compliments. And I think Jordin takes risks, and last night it just didn't pay off. But she knew it. I think that Lakisha would have been going home last week. She's very hit and miss. She was great in the begining, and then has been off her game for the past 8 weeks. I don't know if last nights performance was enough to undo the damage though.

I aint trying to be mean, BUt how was his performance confusing? Bon Jovi even said there are parts in the song where you dont sing so he did his own thing which was awesome!!!! I like Chris too Justinsbelle!!!

I didn't like Blakes version of "you give love a bad name." It actually really bothered me. I will say his vocals were good but everything else confused me. I think the bottom will be Lakisha, Phil & Jordin. I think Lakisha will go home for sure but for the other I don't know. I DO NOT want Chris to go! i love him :)"If sexy never left, then why's everybody on my shit?"

Phil's creepy bulging eyeballs kill his chances for me, even if I am sometimes impressed by his vocal skills. I always forget about Jordin, so I doubt she'll last long.

I just think that Melinda is annoying with the way she acts.. She acts like she does not know that people think she is good, DUH!!! you would not be on american idol if you sucked...

I find it odd that people don't like Melinda because she is humble. Isn't that a GOOD quality? I don't like it when people are too smug!I hope Melinda stays, she never hits a wrong note.

Bottom 3: Phil, Lakisha, ChrisVFTW is backing Phil, I guess, but who knows how much that will affect the results. Chris will go for sure...the other one is a toss up for me.
