I’ll be Paula: “I liked Lee’s hair.” It was shorter.

I'll be Paula, too...I liked Lee's blue eyes...they were gazing at the audience finally!

Embarrassed to ask but what movie is this from?

I missed the fun. But I have a good excuse, I am now a home owner. Had to make my first Home Depot run already.

Will watch on tivo and catch up.

“Kiss From a Rose” was from the “Batman Returns” soundtrack. The only other thing that movie was famous for was Michell Pfeiffer’s Catwoman outfit, afaik.

Looks like it will be a Crystal vs. Huge Mike final.

Lee and Casey should BOTH go home after tonight.

Well, that was an interesting night. One stand out performance, two great duets, and a lot of silliness from the judges.

Solo performances (You know the ones that count):
1. Crystal Bowersox - I’m Alright - This was Brilliant. Crystal brought a 25 year old song into the present and made it a totally new hit. Coupled with Lee’s trainwreck performance, she may have WON the competition tonight. Possibly the best performance of the entire season.

2. Casey James - Mrs. Robinson - I thought the arrangement and Casey’s performance were great. This is the best Casey has done in weeks.

3. Michael Lynche - Will You be There - I liked this, it wasn’t great, but it was very good. Not his best by far, but still a quality performance.

4. Lee Dewyze - Kiss From A Rose - Lee was not very wise here, how many times in the last 9 years have we said - SONG CHOICE SONG CHOICE SONG CHOICE. This song showed off every flaw in Lee’s range and ability to sing on key. This bordered on painful at times. He has wowed me a few times this season, but this was a complete utter train wreck.

DUETS :
1. Michael Lynche/Casey James - Have You ever Really Loved a Woman - This was flat out awesome. This is actually the song Michael should have chosen as his solo song, his vocals were brilliant on this. Casey was darn good too, and his guitar playing was off the charts.

2. Crystal Bowersox/Lee Dewyze - Falling Slowly - Not as good as Mike/Casey, but still fantastic. If I was rating all 6 songs together, these duets would have been 2 and 3 behind Crystal’s “I’m Alright”. This song showed Lee’s talent and ALMOST cleansed the taste of the disasterous “Kiss From a Rose”, but as good as Lee was, the song really showed the clarity of Crystal’s vocals next to the roughness of Lee’s. She blew him out of the studio on the solo’s and bested him in the duet also.

SHOULD GO HOME - Based solely on this week - LEE - his solo performance was just flat out terrible.

WILL GO HOME - CASEY OR MIKE. Both have shown voting weakness, and as good as they were together, neither really took full advantage of Lee’s face plant. Still, were I Lee I would be worried.

Howdy! Missed you all tonite...had a church thingy we had to do. Anyhoo, just watched and I want to know....why did they pick these boring songs?? arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

I didn’t really, really like anybody. But, Casey and Mike sounded good in the duet. I have no clue who will go home. None. Might even be Crystal. DRAMA!

Call me crazy but I still see “The Ugly Girl” every time I look at Jamie Foxx’s face. I never “bought” him as a serious actor, though he did well as Ray Charles, and I do not “buy” him as R&B singer. So it’s fitting that you show him as Ugly Girl.

Sorry, I don’t get to come on the thread much anymore. I have to share the computer and the girls have been having much homework lately! (mean teachers...:) I noticed when they intro’d Foxx they didn’t talk about his career on SNL or was it In LIving Color?

LOL, well this is the week for shocking eliminations (sometimes). Last night was pretty bland. It's like none of them are trying to win, just trying not to lose.

I usually like Crystal’s performances, but I didn’t get anything out of “I’m Alright”. Brave choice though. At least she didn’t play it safe.

Hi, EG! I've missed seeing you on the thread.

Living Color. Damon Wayans was on both shows--he was fired from SNL in the mid 80s (I think) because he said some four-letter words on live TV. That doesn't surprise me, lol

Last week's show with Harry Connick was excellent, but I can honestly say that if it wasn't for the FR thread and all my friends here, I wouldn't bother to watch it anymore..

BTW...how's THIS for a way to end "24"..In the last hours of the current season, the CTU gets wind of a Muslim plot to blow-up the theater during the live broadcast of AI. Jack Bauer to the rescue..foils the plot..kills all the Muzzie terrorists LIVE on national TV....he is wounded..many of the show's co-stars..the good guys.. are killed during the mission...then, in the last shot, the fade away...Bauer says "I can't believe they all died to save Lady GaGa and Ellen DeGeneris.." I quit!!....

They might as well save us the next few weeks and just hand the contract to Crystal. No way she doesn’t win this thing. It isn’t even a contest and that fact alone is making it drag on for me.

I would prefer there to be some kind of anticipation and competition but there just really isn’t. It’s clear as CRYSTAL and frankly, I’m tired of her already.

On the contrary, if the “LEAD Zepplin” AKA Mike does not leave tonight, I think the fix is already in and it is already determined that he will win (so he can feed his new baby as well as himself...you DID know he had a baaby didnt you? ;-)

I don’t blame Paula. After the way she was screwed over by Idol last summer, she’s right to ask for some money up front.

I am with you — Simon got what, 8 million? He can put a few shekels together to get Paula onboard for XF.

And he should.

This has been the longest season. Even though they’ve kicked someone off every week (except once) it doesn’t feel like there’s been any progression.
