American Idol Top 7

American Idol . . . Here's Mariah

Considering that Mariah has more No. 1 singles than Elvis and has worked with Randy Jackson for years, it was only a matter of time before she was on the show. Her new album hit stores yesterday, and considering Ashlee Simpson has an album coming out around the same time, we think the AI guest star option is a way better way to promote it than the engaged and maybe pregnant way to get headlines (ouch but true).

Overall Simon concluded the truth: As usual, the men won the night! Syesha was the only woman worth noting, hitting those high notes while glowing in her gold gown.

As for the boys, David Archuleta was solid, and Cook was emotional as well as the best performance, choosing the most memorable Mariah song of the night. Jason Castro had a great beat but wasn't the best.

My favorite part was when Simon was all proud of the "Simon for President" sign that Ryan then tore up. Tonight I think we'll see Carly, Brooke, and Kristy Lee Cook in the final three and I'm thinking Carly's time is up.

I think the only reason the men did 'better' last night was because no one was comparing their voices to Mariah Carey's. That gave them a real advantage. Of course Brooke doesn't have the range Mariah does. That doesn't mean she's not awesome.I hope Syesha or KLC go home. KLC bored me to tears. Syesha is just a pretty face.

American Idol is HORRIBLE this year. There really seem to be only one or two of them performers with "real" talent and the rest appear to be wannabe's. I've been losing enthusiasm for this show over the last couple of seasons, and honestly, I haven't watched one episode all the way through (Except the auditions, still love those). I watch enough to see the horrible performances, then try to watch them again (With fast forward) on the net the next day. Brooke, whom I LOVE has seriously fallen. The only two worth listening to are Carly and David C. Ah Idol, get back to what you once were, when everyone planned their whole WEEK around AI eps!

I think David Cook is great and probably even a little underrated because of Chris Daughtry's success and the fact that their styles are a little similar. I think there's room at the top for both of 'em though.... Probably next to go is Brooke or Carly. I think they will keep Syesha around for a minute.

It seems like Pop just hates Carly. You have her in the bottom three or going home every week and she's still around! David Cook was amazing last night...Kristy Lee Cook should GO HOME. She's gotten real lucky the past couple weeks and is only still in b/c of her looks. So annoying.

I think that the album is pretty good- not mimi good, but good- David cook, while I hate the smugness, was very good, just the risks he takes is worth a vote in my book. I want KLC to go home sooo bad but I have a feeling its gonna be Brooke- she just isnt that strong which breaks my heart cause I love her!
