American Idol Season 6 Top 10 - Gwen's Inspiration

American Idol Season 6 Top 10 - Gwen's Inspiration

Last night was supposed to be about Gwen Stefani and inspirational songs yet once again Sanjaya's hair will be the most talked about part of the evening. Most of the performances were forgettable including the disappointing Chris Sligh. There is always someone early on who sounds amazing that unfortunately doesn't improve as the show progresses and it looks like Chris is that contestant this year. As for favorites, I loved Melinda's look and then Simon bashed it. Boo. Also kudos to Phil for stepping up this week.

As for the bottom three, Haley took one of my all time favorite songs and destroyed it so hopefully she's in the bottom this week. I think she will join Chris Sligh and Jordin Sparks who was just wrong on so many levels. Gina was most improved this week but she still bugs me. We all know Sanjaya has to go but for some reason America wants us to suffer through his terrible voice and style each week so prepare for more of his hideousness next week. As for Gwen, she looks so much better not all made up but I was more upset we didnt get a Kingston sighting. Vote now on who you think is going home tonight and for more about last night's episode click here. Can't get enough of Idol? Join the AI group here and discuss it all week long!

gwen was really sweet with the contestants. i was LITERALLY, ROLLING ON THE FLOOR BAWLING WITH TEARS IN MY EYES WHEN I SAW SANJAYA'S HAIR BEFORE THE COMMERCIALS. my neighbors thought someone was dying. :) sanjaya and haley need to leave soon. i think melinda did an incredibly job. it took me 8 tries to get my call through, but i had to vote for her. blake didn't do that great of a job, but after his "time of the season" performance that i've been watching over and over again every day for the past week, he needs to stay. and chris sligh has been boring me for a while.. but i can't help but root for him because i, too, want him to make david hasselhoff cry.

Gwen looked great. She was kinda useless with the advice though.. she totally did not want to be there. Oh well, she got time to promote herself!

When Sanjaya showed up on TV, all my friends and i were like "OH MY GOSH" he's taking whatever attention he can get and he'll be here for a long time i just hope he doesn't win.Phill was the best last night, Jordin is impressing me more and more. Lakesha (kiki) was good too. Everyone else was boring and forgettable (I didn't get to see Chris S and Gina)****"Everything in life is only for now."-Avenue Q****

Bathwater is also my fave No Doubt song, so I am glad I missed it. What song did Haley butcher this week?

Gwen is gorgeous as usual. I am digging the Faux-hawk. It sure made me laugh. But I wonder how far those Limited Too Frequent Shoppers are gonna take it. I would laugh my ass off if he were to go into the top 3. I cannot imagine the chaos and pandemonium that would ensue if he were to actually win...

Blake didn't sing a Gwen Stefani song and I don't remember him ever forgetting the words. "V.I.P 'cause you know I gotta shine..."

I really like her with out red lipstick! I haven't really paid attention to Idol this year, because I saw the top 24, and it was really underwhelming. I do not think that out of the thousands of people they auditioned, that these were the best. I think the show needs to stop focusing on the "funny/bad" people during the audition rounds, and start trying to find the truly talented people. I could find 24 better singers at my small town high school.

I really like Chris Richardson but he did not impress me with Don't Speak. He's not in the bottom three tonight tho. He's second in votes to Melinda.

Chris Sligh and Haley were just terrible. Phil, Jordin, and Chris(Timberfake)Richardson were tolerable. Sanajaya should be put to sleep. Simon was right about the Melinda’s outfit. Her dress gave me a headache.
