American Idol Top 9

American Idol Dolly Night

Tonight on AI, apparently there was more drama than from Simon's usual disgust. Ryan's knee issues and David Cook's post-show hospital trip make it sound like more exciting stuff was going on behind the scenes than on the actual show. Simon was pretty much let down by most of the contestants, and we have to say for this point of the competition, we'd hope for better performances also. Maybe I'm still bitter Chikezie got the boot last week.

As for this week:

  • Michael Johns continues to be one of my favorites and was clearly the highlight of the night!
  • Jason Castro was good again for the first time in a while.
  • Syesha ended on a high note (literally), but she should really stop trying to be the next Whitney 'cause she's so not close.
  • Brooke was good, but the best part of her last night was her makeup — so pretty!
  • No one could tell David Cook wasn't feeling well, since his performance was excellent.
  • I am over David Archuleta, but he was good and he isn't going anywhere for a while.
  • Kristy Lee looked pretty but for someone who was excelling in country music, she didn't impress me this week at all.

Bottom three: Ramiele, Carly, and probably Kristy Lee Cook, and of these three, I would not be sad to see any of them go home.

Even though Carly wasn't in the bottom three, I agree with you, Pop, she should have been.

Ramiele is so so cute buy I think she will be out real soon. I am still in love with David A even though he has not been the best this few weeks but his voice is just WOW. As for my fav last night, definitely Michael Johns. I am so glad he didn't peak in Hollywood.

um okay POP i mean really. what's with all the carly hate? sure, she's not my favorite, but she has a genuine heart, she's humble, and she's amazingly talented. you say you're a "kind" entertainment site but then you backhandedly put people down who don't even deserve it. geez.. give carly a break. and quit contradicting yourself!

Pop, you are waaaaayyy too tough on Carly. The girl has got some major pipes and is way better than a lot of the contestants. Her voice is very powerful and she won me over for good on John Lennon and Paul McCartney Night with "Come Together". In my opinion, bottom three should be: * Ramielle (she's so cute though) * Kristy Lee (has failed to woo me) * Jason Castro (the guy can be good, he just needs to step it up a little though I don't think he's gonna go anywhere for a while)

I agree that Pop is wayyyy too harsh on Carly! She's more talented than most others on the show! In my dream world, Kristie Lee would be gone tonight.

I thought Carly was amazing last night. She took a very light boppy song and made it heartfelt. I think Simon was too harsh on her, and no one gave her credit for the amazing arrangment.

Pop is always harsh on Carly! I don't get it! I predict bottom three Ramiele, Syesha, and KLC.

As a whole the entire evening was a snooze for me. No one really impressed me with their singing. I have to agree tho that I'm over David Archuletta, all I could see him as would be perhaps a Christian Contempory musician. Unless he suprises me, I'm over him. I think that bottom three will be Ramielle, Christy Lee & either Sayesha or Jason Castro, with Ramielle going home. The band was playing over her sining most of the time, I just don't think she's strong enough to go much further.

I was talking to Pop, I know how it is when a contestant can annoy you for whatever reason, but you have to give someone credit for their talent.

I really like Brook!

Uh, romania, maybe you better re-read my post. I said she was BETTER than my favorite.
rgrl rgrl 9 years
My bottom three would be Ramielle, Kristy lee and Brooke. I think David A has a crystal clear flawless voice, he just needs to make better song choices and let go a little bit.

I don't know why you always down talk Carlie, she is obviously very talented and has one of the strongest voices. I like Brooke, but I think Carly was better than her last night. The guys are my favorite this season.
Mykie7 Mykie7 9 years
Brook has GOT to win! She's awesome. I don't know what everyone's fascination is with little David Archuleta. I don't think he's that great. David Cook did a great job, and considering he was ill while doing it? Wow. I was NOT impressed by Kristie Lee or Ramiele and I'm sure they'll be in the bottom two. Standout performance for me though, as much as I want to say it was Brook, was definitely Carly Smithson.
