My bet is that Kelley has generated enough popularity that she could survive one bad performance.

That is exactly what kellie has done. Much like Bosurvived the horrible disaster of his Broadway night performance. She has consistently been on of the top 3 women every week, and that coupled with her humorous schtick has garnered her one hell of a fan base.

YES! He can actually sing and has some dance moves for the stage as he showed last night.

Stringing Kevin along and letting him think he has talent to be in this business is cruel to him. People are just voting for him to mess with the ratings, etc.

I was hoping for G'Ace to get the boot this week. I'm sure the teeny-boppers will rally next week to keep him from getting voted off next week.

But Melissa getting the "boot" was predictable. She should have gone over Ayla last week. Simon helped this time by not "slamming" her and getting a sympanthy vote.

Anyone know what they're singing next week??

I figured Kellie May Gherkin would be safe. I had a much tougher time getting through on her line.
Next week I'll vote for Lisa. I was hoping Paris would have been in the bottom 3.
Better luck next week.

No. People actually do like Pee Wee. I don't care for his singing myself, but I have to admit he handles all of this very well and his confidence covers a lot of his faults.

Some said 50's.

I figure it doesn't really make much difference who goes when. There are a lot that are equally forgettable. Taylor, Chris, Mandisa, Katharine, and probably Paris in the top 5, when we get there.

The wannabees will all drop eventually. I think the top three are Taylor, Chris and Mandisa. When we get to that point it will get harder to choose who to vote for.

Katharine is another one that I just don't care much for the songs she does. This week was better, but its one of the few that I liked.

Sorry, had to jump off for a while to feed Mr. T2.

Melissa was the right choice, I don't think her voice could hold out too many more weeks.

Ace Peterson...

No wonder he grew his locks like Constantine/Lt. Dan.

I hope his "girlfriend" doesn't like to walk her dog at night.

I thought that Katherine looked pretty confident when Ryan was going through saying what the judge's comments were..and if she was in the bottom 3...she didn't look relieved at all when he said she wasn't.

Any idea why DialIdol got closed down and VoteForTheWorst didn't? Seems odd.

I'm not sure about that.

But VoteForTheWorst picked Kevin this week and he didn't even make the bottom 3.

I think they have SOME "power," but not as much as everyone thinks.

Kevin has the "awwwwww....how cute" factor, as well as standing up to Simon. A lot of people like him. Heck, even Makayla stayed a few weeks and she was horrible.

But I still don't see him staying much longer. One thing for sure, you really never know for sure if someone is totally "safe."

Fantasia was in the bottom 3 several times. I still think if Latoya London had been there, she would have won it. She was a victim of "you're too good, I don't need to vote for you" syndrom.

Manatee-sa won't make the final 3. McPhee will.

I think she's a HUGE talent(no pun intended)...but I don't see these superficial voters going for a female Rueben.
