Yea, I wasn't too impressed with Katie's performance. And yea - where was Lady Gaga? EVERY performance she does is outrageous and noteworthy. My favorite was Susan Boyle. She's STILL the most talked about now! Even 50 Cent called her "hot right now", which is why he wants to collaborate with her.To all you Susan fans, there will be a special about her THIS Sunday! I found this sneak peak on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gTcuc-XToXo

Katie Holmes may have have done an adequate job- but there were so many other performances that showcased real talent- ditto for Miley. Susan Boyle was awesome and I hope to hear more from her, and Lady Gaga was pretty buzzworthy...

I'm surprised that you included Katie on this list. I thought her performance was awful. She can't sing and the choreography did not show what I heard to be an amazing talent for dance. Now Susan Boyle, she was amazing and is easily number one.

I disagree with Katie Holmes on SYTYCD--she was absolutely awful in every sense of the word. (Unless, maybe that's the buzz we're talking about?!) Sticking to the Fox network, I would say the more memorable performance would be the finale of American Idol--any of those songs. Adam Lambert with KISS really takes the cake.

I vote SUBO for number one. She really had the most talked about performance besides Miley, and subo was talked about because of her talent. :) Go Susan
