Gina Gina Gina Hun. Red bra. Sheer top. Wobbly bits. That’s just tacky. (I bet Johnny was happy. )

Yes I was :)

And I was kinda nervous. I thought her wobbly bits were gonna pop out!

5-8 (B3) Sabrina Sloan

I think she's in danger too. In an upset, she might get the boot tomorrow night and save Haley or Antonella.

I just saw that. It looks like Haley's sympathy vote may be kicking in. I'm gonna give Sabrina the Teenage Cher/Streisand a few extra votes. She's a lot better than Haley or Barbarella.

I'm gonna miss the three evenings a week of Idol, when it goes down to two evenings next week.

Maybe combining the guys and gals will force the guys to step it up.

OMG! Jonny, you have outdone yourself with this marvelous collection of Antonella pictures, as she tours our most revered and sacred national monuments.

I can see her in twenty years cavorting in the Tidal Basin with some renowned rednosed drunk Senator of the stature of Wilbur Mills.

Antonella herself is a national treasure--Hustler-style.

My rankings:

Melinda
LaKisha

It's gonna be a great battle between them. They're both great singers, and beyond that, they're consistent. Last season, Mandisa had a great voice, but she had some off nights. I don't think that's going to happen with these two.

..and the rest of the girls...

Stephanie(the only other one I think can step into the fray if Melinda or LaKisha falter)
Sabrina
Jordin
Gina

...and a clear step down to...

Antonella(thought that was her best performance but it's still not good enough if there's justice in the voting.)
Haley

Antonella and Haley should be leaving, but dialidol is showing some troubling numbers--Sabrina was at the bottom a few minutes ago and now Stephanie is at the bottom.

Again, no detailed notes from me... but the clear "losers", as in, the ones needed to be voted off, are Haley and Antonella. That said, history has shown that we're due for a "surprise" elimination, and given how shallow the guy's talent pool is, it's going to come from the girls.

I will say I'm not on the Lakisha bandwagon, and I thought the judges did her a great disservice but not providing constructive criticism -- specifically, her diction was awful; I could only follow the words because I knew the song.

I'm sure everyone else is on the Melinda train, and I've got nothing bad to say about her.

With most folks focused on Melinda and Lakisha, I think the two gals to watch for are Sabrina and Jordin. Sabrina brings a little touch of "different" to a competition that appears is going to be dominated by powerful gospel singers, as such she poses an alternative choice for voters. Jordin can't match the other power singers with her voice, but she has great personality and energy; she should connect well with the teenage voters who dominate the AI voting.

I have Haley and Skank gone tomorrow...and also I picked 4 of the guys to go LOL...Sanjaya, Jared, Brandon and Chris (the blonde Chris)

I completely agree.

Sometimes I wonder about the "vote-for-the-worst" voters, wondering if they are the reason these talentless contestants remain, when they are nowhere near the caliber of the other contestants.

Haley and Antonella SO need to go...otherwise, one of the girls who actually has talent will be off the show and that would suck. And although Stephanie can sing, she sounds like every other black female artist out there. She's NOT unique or different and to me, her voice sounds like Beyonce's (close your eyes next time and listen...you'll hear it). Plus she looks too much like Fantastic Burrito and that look really bothers me. I say it's going to be between Lakesha and Melinda with Gina and Sabrina as close runners up.

As for the guys....ugh...any of them except Sundance, Blake and Chris Sligh, could go and I wouldn't care. Those are the only 3 in my opinion who I would consider buying their albums, but I highly doubt a guy will take it this year. None of the guys are even close to the same caliber as Melinda, Lakisha, Gina and Sabrina.

But who knows who America will vote in...after all, they kept Bo Bice up until the last minute and he shouldn't have stayed past the top 10, imo. Mr. Lucky keeps vowing to stop watching AI because of that, but I keep reminding him that it really doens't matter who wins AI. Anyone in the top 10, pretty much gets a record deal and depending in their talent, actually do better than those that have won. Look at Clay Aiken and Daughtry....

I find I keep forgetting about Jordan and I shouldn't because she is good, especially for her age. She has some serious lung power and I think she'll be up in the top 3, above Sabrina and Gina.

She's from AZ, so of course, I have to vote for her.... :)

Oh no. Melinda has OCD. TMI.

She shouldn't have sung this song. It's too old. Makes her seem old.


I completely disagree. Melinda singing that song was SO perfect and she did it SO well. It is nice to hear a black female artist sing something other than the crap that is out there today, that sounds the same when any female black artist who sings it.

I love that she went back in time and was DIFFERENT. We need that in this competition. And she did GREAT.

The whole time she was singing, I totally felt like I was in church...listening to the "singers" before the sermon...

Re Stephanie: I really liked that jazzy song she did on the very first night, and I love her look. I think she knows how to dress, and presents herself very elegantly. She looks like Fantasia THINKS she looks! LOL!

But in the last two songs she's done, she's had real problems dealing with the songs' timing -- she seemed to always be out of synch with the beat -- and her voice, on listening to it further, is good -- but just that. Good, not great. I don't see her as Idol material. (Though I certainly hope she outlasts Haley and La Skank, who both need to go!)

As for the guys, I am beyond caring who goes or stays. None of them will win.
