American Idol Top 11

American Idol Top 11 Butcher the Beatles

Simon was spot on when he said doing Beatles for a second week basically killed all the great memories from last week. I don't understand how there are so many wonderful Beatles tunes to choose from and yet somehow this group managed to pick things we had never heard or just destroy some classics. Such a shame.

Once again I liked Brooke; even though this week showed all her quirky awkward traits, I agreed with Paula that she just makes me smile. Others who were worth watching were David Archuleta, Syesha, Jason Castro, and David Cook. While Cook was impressive, he is clearly getting cocky, which is why I think Simon was trying to put him back in his place last night. Also, even though Simon bashed Michael Johns, it took major guts to do that song so he's got to get some credit for that.

Amanda — still bugs. What can I say, I just am in no way into her. Average Kristy Lee and Carly will probably make it through, while adorable Ramiele may be in the bottom three but I am hoping Chikezie takes her place instead. I enjoyed him but I think, like the judges, many people didn't like him.

Bottom three: Amanda, Kristy Lee, and Chikezie
Going home: Amanda (please please please)

Why all the fuss? Beatles songs "are not" the best ever composed, and quite frankly, all are highly overrated! Insofar as talent on American Idol is concerned, the most talented was Amanda. I would not have watched the show but for hearing her voice. She may not be "all of that" but neither are 80% or more of those deemed to be stars today. The show, as a contest is bogus! None of the remaining participants are worthy of a prize - I contend that during the preliminaries, those who may have been truly talented were "cut" for reasons beyond the scope of talent. I believe its time that talented individuals and audiences, realize the ills of the music industry - a monopoly perpetuated by the likes of those talented who place their music on forums such as myspace... . Who am I to say these things? I'm me... .

I feel of the bottom three Kristy should have gone home before Amanda. But so far I think that David Archuleta is by far the best of them all.

its to bad we didn't get to see amanda do a country song or to the same how can rocker david cook pull off a country with his hard rock and roll style. kristy and brook should be able to handle anytype of song with there great voices. david cook has a bad attitude.

I still love Ramiele, she's very cute. And I really like Brooke! I also liked what Carly did with Blackbird. Kristy Lee Cook is consistently horrible though. Why is she still on the show? Ugh.

How can David have to deal with a combover at the young age of 25? Poor guy :rotfl: I agree with Pop that his performance last night was decent, but, you could tell he thought it was the best thing since sliced bread. Simon totally called him out and I loved it.

I really liked Carly's Blackbird and Michael didn't do as bad as the judges made it out to be imo. It's just way to hard to squeeze that song into 1:30.

I agree, Amanda really bugs me. And Michael had a lot of guts to tackle on "A Day in the Life."

This season sucks. Not a good group...I can't see any of them being the next real American Idol. They're far too cocky and lacking personality.

Buzz, I'm sooooo grateful that you said that. I kept wondering if it was just me that he had a really bad comb-over! I loved how Simon put him in his place, "You weren't as good as I think you think you were." Every Every week I wait until Simon speaks and usually he's spot on.

last night was a snooze-fest. boring. blah. amanda just doesn't do it for me, although at least she smiles now. i wouldn't be sad to see her go. although the fact that kristy picked the song solely from the title, doesn't really tell me that she CARES very much or has paid attention to the judges advice about how important song choice is (song...not song title). what a dope. she should go just because of that.

David Cook needs to tone down the rockstar act a little. I was finally starting to like him (despite the comb-over), but that voice box thing was too much. Michael made my head hurt. But he's hot, so I bet he stays. Brooke is a cutie; she'll be back in form next week, I bet.

Last night show was terrible! I don't understand why they would do Beatles songs 2 weeks in a row. That was a mistake in my opinion. Everyone sucked in my opinion. I am not sure why people like Brooke or David A, I don't think that they are that good. I think Amanda, Chikezie and Kristy lee will be at the bottom... or maybe Syesha. I totally agree with pop, Amanda needs to go

Every single contestant should be kicked off for doing a disservice to some of the greatest songs ever written.

Yea, I really wish they hadn't done the Beatles two weeks in a row. It was way to much. I am however glad that David Archuletta was able to redeem himself a bit this week. My two least fav were Kristy Lee and Chikeizie. But agree that Amanda has GOT to go soon. But I really think Kristy Lee has to go this week.

I was surprised that they did Beatles again this week, they said it was going to be itunes. I was out last night at a tennis tournament so I only saw clips. I thought they were mediocre. Jason Castro singing Michelle was a bad choice. Of all the Beatles songs, that's not one to show your strength. I like Michael Johns but his was ordinary too. They need to sing songs that are upbeat or show their versatility and range. Mariah Carey can sing 7 octaves. They have to show that they out of the ordinary.

They need to stop it with the Beatles songs. They also need to not have a Queen week this year, because...just...don't hurt Queen, OK? Let Freddie Mercury rest in peace. I hope Kristy Lee goes home. She bugs the crap outta me. Hope Ramiele stays--she's so cute and I think she can sing.

it was such a shame that they did beatles again this week. almost every song this week was worse than last week. very dissapoiting. I think bottom 3 will be Chikezie, Kristy Lee and Ramielle. and probably Kristy Lee to go home. she's a sweet girl, but her singing isn't as good as the others...

Of course they butchered The Beatles; they butcher everything on this show.
