American Idol Top 10

American Idol Top 10 Baby!

A contestant born in the '90s — OMG, really, he's a baby. Anyway, more reason to love Michael Johns. My early favorite finally got his groove back last night! He sounded strong like he was back in the early auditions when he wowed us.

Other notables: Rocker David Cook continued to impress. I thought Simon might bash him since he never seems to like Michael Jackson songs, but Cook's version was unique and he pulled it off, so no doubt he will be around next week. Also safe is David Archuleta. Although Simon wasn't into him, he's got his hardcore fans.

As for the ladies, top choices again are Brooke and Syesha. As for Jason, as I write this I can't even remember his performance. I think he is getting boring, so hopefully next week he'll be more exciting, since I would love to see him stay in the competition for a while. Oh, also safe: Kristy Lee Cook, who continues to look hot and this week even impressed the judges with her voice. Nice improvement for KLC.

Bottom three — Looks like Buzz and I agree that they will include the adorable but just not as strong Ramiele, Chikezie, and Carly. I sadly think one of the first two will be saying goodbye, while I wish Carly would be the one sent home.

I couldn't disagree with you more. Carly I like. David A. is a chode and I'd rather ram a piping hot glass dildo in my ears than listen to him and his lip-licking tic makes me want to rip out my own eyeballs and eat them. I liked David Cook's performance and I was glad he finally didn't look too bald this week. Brooke White is teh shiz and Ramiele is just too cute to go away. I can't stand Michael "Dons" Johns either, he looks so pompous and no one should act that much like Jim Morrison. Kristy Lee Cook should not be praised for FINALLY singing one song right. Jason C. is cute as a Pop Tart and he's too cool for AI. Syesha is friggen hot and she has a great voice, she just needs to find the perfect songs. There you have it. My opinions are better than yours because they are mine. ;-)

It is a fact that Ryan announced that Cook was "singing the Chris Cornell version of Billie Jean" before Cook took the stage. And it is a fact that Cook gave a solid performance. But to call Cook, in Randy's words, "the most original" and the "most bold" for a song that he didn't even arrange himself? Cook wasn't even the first rocker to do something like that. Are we all forgetting Chris Daughtry singing the Chili Peppers' version of Stevie Wonder's "Higher Ground?" Both Daughtry and Cook did exactly the same thing: sing a remake of an original song, and sing it well. So to call Cook "original" is total crap. He's good, yes he is. A talented singer and musician. But original? No. It's amazing how quickly Randy & Co. forgot Blake Lewis' rendition of "You Give Love a Bad Name." THAT was Lewis's own arrangement. THAT was bold. THAT was original. Oh, and by the way, here's another list of David Cook's "original" versions: - The Beatle's "Daytripper" by Whitesnake - The Beatle's "Eleanor Rigby" by Doxology - Lionel Richie's "Hello" by Incubus - Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean" by Chris Cornell

They said before David Cook performed that he was performing the Chris Cornell version, so he didn't rip it off. If so, every single performer is ripping off songs. That's what they do, people!

GOLD was right - I love love love Jason Castro, and his version of Fragile was so beautiful, but he might be on the wrong show. American Idol is a show for POP singers who are willing to sell out to the idiots who don't know Leonard Cohen or Gordon Sumner. I'd definitely buy Jason Castro's CD when he comes up with one.

I am done with this show. It is so played out to me. Same stuff every season.

Seacrest mentioned that Chris Cornell did it before he sang but it was the judges that said he was original. That David A kid is creepy and I totally agree with Simon he clearly did not pick that song.

I really hope Jason does something amazing next week, he's very entertaining to me. I've never really liked Brooke, she's more boring than Jason, so she should go before him. But Kristy Lee needs to GO already, she's horrible.

What are you talking about? Carly is the best one on there. I really hope she makes it to the finally two. Her and David Cook. I totally forgot it was on yesterday and missed her performance but I still voted for her. She's too good to get sent home.

Ryan said that David Cook was doing someone elses version of "Billie Jean", but I missed who he said it about. Now I know and I like him even more.

In NO WAY should Carly be sent home. Ramielle, KLC, Chikezie, and Jason Castro should be sent home before her.

You guys need to get your story right OR at least pay some attention before you comment! Before David Cook sang, Ryan didn't say he was singing Michael Jackson's Billie Jean... he said HE IS SINGING THE CHRIS CORNELL VERSION OF BILLIE JEAN. If you say you are singing Chris Cornell, and then you sing Chris Cornell, it is not a rip off! He gave full credit to Chris Cornell before the song even started!

Pop, I can't believe you said David Cook was original--PLEASE check your sources! It's Chris Cornell's version--he deserves the credit for the originality, NOT David. I will, however, agree that he sang it fantastically. :)

Thank God Kitten98! I'm so greatful that someone else agrees with me about David Cook last night! I totally didn't like his performance at all! Not even a little bit, but everyone else I've talked to was like, OMG he was the best. I did NOT care for it at all.

Michael and David Cook are awesome! I think David Cook is probably my favorite though. I already knew about Chris Cornell's version and I think David did an amazing job.

Calry is awesome! I think she needs much more credit than she's getting. I also like Michael John a lot. I was really pleased with his performance last night! If Kristy stays another week, I may have to rip my hair out. I have nothing against her song choice, but I don't think she was ever good enough, even compared to some others who have already been voted off!

Michael Johns - swoon! David Cook did not impress me as much as he did everyone else. Yes, he has talent, but I think he has a huge head and just completely ripped off Chris Cornell which thank goodness is making its way around the internet. People at first thought that was alllll his idea and it wasnt. To me he is just riding on what Chris Daughtry did last season. And Chris Daughtry himself was reworking other peoples ideas. Right now it is all about Michael Johns for me, that man is gorgeous. Kristy Cook, oh my gosh, she needs to go. I think she is the weakest one up there and I am sorry but that is a tired song.

I watched but now can't remember, if it was implied that David reworked Billie Jean or not. If so, that's crap! If not, he did take a chance in singing that version and he did do it well. I agree with others I think David A is a cutie (even though I'm old enough to be his mom) but he does need to sing some young hip stuff. He no doubt can sing, he just needs to bring it. I have to say I really like Brooke but agree she needs to step out of the folk song genre. She has talent. Michael was brillant. I really like his voice.

My favorites are David C., Brooke, Carly, and Michael. I think Kristy needs to go home. I have not been impressed yet. She only got through to the top 24 by singing Amazing Grace. Everything else was just lackluster.
Christina23559 Christina23559 9 years
I am somewhat in agreement Pop. I told my husband after two people had performed (after Jason) that I couldn't even remember what Jason sang. I'm personally NOT a fan of David Cook, I know that I was in the minority, but I hated the arangement, the pace, the way he sang. The whole thing was a big poop sandwich for me. I think Chikiezi is goin home tonight.

I love Micheal John, he is so sexy, and he was great last night. Ramiele is going home. Carly is excellent, I think Pop does not care for her because she is a bit high on herselfI love Jason and Brooke's style, but they are a bit boho for AI.

I seriously cannot comprehend how you would want Carly to be the one sent home. Are you joking? I really, really don't get that. I think Carly is fabulous. Her voice is amazing and she has a great personality. What is not too like? Seriously, you saying you want her to go just blew my mind. I missed last week, but this week, Chickezie seemed weak to me. Ramiele was just ok and is probably in danger, I agree. David Archuleta bugs me but like you said I'm sure he'll hang in there (long past his time, imho). The whole "Proud to be an American" think was just weird to me. I thought the performance was incredibly cheesy and the way all three judges raved and glowed enthusiastically about the song choice seemed scripted to me.

Jason is getting boring - but so is Brooke, IMO. They're both folk singers - not pop stars. Carly has an incredible voice, but I don't think she's exciting as a performer. I wish David Archuleta would sing something more age appropriate - why must he always sing deep songs with a message!? He's 17! I loved David Cook's Billie Jean - even if it was a ripoff, his voice was amazing. He and Michael are my faves.
