  1. Casey once again is “thrown under the bus” by the judges, as well as Siobhan. The judges have their favorites and it isn’t these two…Keep voting for Casey…he was amazing…as always!!

  2. Crystal takes from her soul, and shares it with the world..spread that gift girl..it will surely come full-circle back to you!

  3. Her emotion totally touched my heart tonight… and she brought me to tears. Crystal, you’re a true performer!! You’re THE BEST!!!

  4. Crystal has just stepped into the small group of people I would pay to have a conversation with. What a talent.

  5. If you haven’t listened to Crystals oringinal songs please look her up on you tube or Chicago Acoustic underground and listen she writes amazing songs.

  6. Lee was far better than the front runner Crystal. IMO Crystal is FAKE and as always she appeal to the judges. The only one I voted for was Siobhan and I hope she does not get eliminated. The judges are too bias and it it obvious they do not like Siobhan. IMO

  7. Everybody did very well tonight. They were all trying to the same thing: start soft and build to a climax. The question is how smooth and compelling the build is and how high the climax.

    Casey showed a stronger voice than in the past, and the sound mixer actually allowed us to hear the guitar. A strong, entertaining performance.

    Lee tried to sell “The Boxer” and almost pulled it off. The final line “I am leaving, I am leaving, but the FIRE still remains” has to be almost spit out, but Lee wimped out.

    Tim just gave a good reading of “Better Days” and showed an improving voice. The ending, where he slowed down and almost whispered the final words, would have been affecting if Tim was feeling the words. He wasn’t.

    Aaron’s build of “I believe I can Fly” was uneven, but he almost saved it when he held the last note for almost forever. I did the same thing last week.

    Siobhan was almost perfect on “When You Believe”. She was doing something subtle with practically every note, built smoothly, and her falsetto work at the end was brilliant.

    Mike is a wonderful work in process. He is changing and improving his voice right in front of our eyes. His “Hero” had a good start, built smoothly, and had a compelling climax. He could have pumped more emotion into it.

    Crystal packed so much emotion into “People Get Ready” that the technical aspects are superfluous.

    IMHO, they came out Crystal, Siobhan, Casey, Mike, Lee, Aaron, Tim.

  8. CRYSTAL tears killed the rest…but it was actually nothing special…thats why Women’s cry is scary for …

  9. Yes why Judges pick Siobhan out , see from negative side… i cannot believe them…how they will feel if they also a contestant and got treated unfair…

  10. My top vote goes to Lee then Casey BUT not to win and the reason is because if you win, you will have to follow the Idol imprint but on your own you two will rock like Chris D. did. He was my fave and he’s probably the most successful non-winner and he got to be himself. Love you guys, keep rockin’ it and keep it real!

  11. Reading this blog prompts me to suggest that everyone go read the John Godfrey Saxe poem about six blind men looking at an elephant. That is exactly what is going on here.

  12. For me tonight
    1 Crystal (even I hate the fact judges are not judging everyone else but giving all the support to her)
    2. Lee he did great
    3. Siobhan she was wonderful
    4. Casey was ok needs to take more risks
    5. Mike so good voice but starting to bore me
    6. Aaron he is really trying
    7. Tim horrible song choice worse singing. The song was too low for his tone and I didn’t feel any emotion whatsoever.

  13. Lee Dewyze was awsome tonight! Lee makes every song new and unique,like he just wrote the songs himself.Please… smile, that will make any song you sing complete. GREAT JOB!

  14. maybe crytals tears or crying is part of her plan to get people attention…..the song is so inspirational and emotion but when she sing it….i didn’t feel the emotion sorry…….

  15. Who do you think deserve to be American Idol winner this year is it Lee Dewyze or Crystal Bowersox?

  16. @ those who think Crystal’s tears are fake

    You are stupid!… no other word for it….

    This girl has so much talent that she does not need to rely on pitiful stunts, like removing shirts or sliding across the stage or promoting parenthood.

    Crystal has more talent than all the others put together….

    I can not believe the people who like casey… His voice range is terrible, and it speaks volumes when we are supposed to be judging a singing contest and comments like “The sound mixer allowed us to actually hear his guitar” tells you that listening to someone’s guitar is far better than listening to him sing!

  17. Siobhan was great and was always great. The judges are very unfair on providing their comments. Siobhan is the only one taking risks in very episode. Unlike crystal and Lee who always do the same thing. Maybe crystal made a little bit changes but this time crystal was loud and annoying she even did an emotional appeal, that’s a shame/. I mean try to think about the recording output. Siobhan will surely have the variety package with a full blown hooray. Not Crystal; and the other contestants. Come on America! Vote for Siobhan. Siobhan has million of Fans here at Manila, Philippines!

  18. For me, Lee Dewyze is the best of all the remaining 7 contestants. He’s got all what it takes to be the winner. His unique voice outshines the rest of the contestants. Boo for Siobhan. She soon will be voted out after the 3 (Tim, Aaron & Big Mike)

  19. CYRSTAL WILL WIN. WHEN KATIE WAS VOTED OFF, THAT INSURED A WIN FOR CRYSTAL. BUT, KATIE WAS THE BEST PERFORMER THIS YEAR, WE’LL SEE HER AGAIN. NEXT TIME, AS A STAR!!!

  20. CRYSTAL IS A SHOO IN TO WIN. NOBODY ON THE SHOW HAS THE TALENT TO BEAT HER. SHE CAN DO EVERYTHING. ALMOST AS GOOD AS KATIE STEVENS.

  21. @ Canyon,
    Only one problem with your analogy.

    We all can hear and see and feel
    The songs that have been sang
    And still we differ in our thoughts
    Though we all heard the same

    The very fact that we disagree
    And do not simply follow suit
    Demonstrates the intelligence
    That within us all was put

    So therefore as blind men walk
    And can only feel not see
    They only have those parts which were felt
    And on those their opinions will be

    But we with all our senses intact
    Experience the entirety
    And yet we still have different views
    And that’s the way it’ll always be

  22. all I have to say is, if crystal and lee are not the last two left then this show is rigged. either that or all of you 14 year old girls need to quit voting 100 times for who you think is cute! its a singing not a competition not a bueaty pagent! ive loved crystal since the first time she tried out!!!

  23. I found it totally offensive, biased, rude and unprofessional of Kara to jump up from her chair and tell Crystal she “schooled” everyone
    else last night. The other six contestants did
    not deserve that reaction. There is a way to let a contestant know you really liked what she
    did but not like that. Crystal did a great job
    but she certainly didn’t “school” the others.
    Can it be any more obvious that Kara and Simon
    have their favorite?

  24. And the Moral is:

    Opinions are as anuses
    Each one possesses his own
    And through the gift of liberty
    We can offer up either one

  25. Good Job for Casey James tonight’s performance! He did his best and I like him so much. Sad to say that we can’t vote for him here in the Philippines but America, please give Casey James your vote. He deserve to win this season. I do not like Lee DeWyze and Crystal Bowersox. Simon, please let Casey win. Good Luck Casey!;)

  26. Marta I think you nailed it except for Crystal as for me I am concerned is worth every prays she gets. Its not even a competition any more Crystal is like Simon said in a league way above the rest..I think Siobhan & Lee rank 2-3

  27. I think that every1 shood b voted off except 4 Tim Urban and Aaron Kelly! they r like the best 1’s in the competition ok! and whoevr doesnt like aaron or tim well u peeps SUCK! i meen they where awesome last nite i think crystal sucked! actually i fell asleep wen she performed! and my sis woke me up cuz she started 2 cry and i am like “wat the ****” wat a loser who crys in the middle of a song! gosh i bet she planned 2 do that gosh u peeps r gullable!

  28. Richard T is soooo rite!!!! kara simon stop picking favorties!!!! if you shood have a favorite it shood either be tim or aaron!!!

  29. AI 2010, i think its Lee D

    Bottom 3 in tonights performance? Its Tim, Casey and Siobhan… and its Siobhan to go home…

    Week after week, im getting irritated with Siobhan… She doesnt want to hear bad comments about her just concluded performance.. She wanted to hear good comments alone.. With that i thought that she should not join the americal idol search anymore because she feels she is great already… hahahaha

  30. 1. Chrystal…By far she was right on vocal with evident and real emotion that had a connection to the audience. This reminded me of religious tent revival singing.

    2. Lee…here is his gravelly voice ringing true. I love Simon Garfunkel songs; but I was not able to understand the words as Lee sang them – he was however as usual in his zone and believable [but this time I think he came in second to Chrystal.]

    3. Casey…every week I am anticipating his guitar playing mixed into his vocals and tonight was not a disappointment. Saying that, I don’t think he had that personal moment for a conection to the audience so his song choice came off as well done, but it didn’t hit a high note for audience appeal.

    4. Siobhan… she actually took her high notes on pitch and held them beautifully; however, I think her voice range is too low and slow popping into the higher and louder pitches so it auditorially comes off as a song not quite connected together. But, I do like her difference.

    5. Mike…I might have put him above Siobhan, but the background music drowned his vocal out…he just couldn’t seem to take his tenor above it, and I am not sure whose fault that was.

    6. Aaron…he may have been better tonight than Siobhan or Mike, but I got a phone call and could only see his bouncy open legged stance on stage…looking like a little boy who needed to grow up another year or two, start getting a beard and maybe a voice change behind him. I just don’t know where to place him.

    7. Tim… I was hoping that after last week Tim was really hitting his particular zone; however, I felt he was way too pitchy tonight and often his voice seemed to be dropping some words of the song. I am sorry to say that I felt he was off and the worst vocalist tonight. I regret this because I thought he was possibly growing and finding himself. Saying that, I think he has an audience that has obviously been voting him in, and they probably will again.

    PEACE

  31. Chrystal has a beautiful voice, and Lee has a wonderful voice and entertains really well. I think it will be Chrystal, Lee and Casey their the favorites because they no how to perform. You have to entertain your audience not bore them to death.

  32. Lee and Crystal were by far the best..going home tonight? CASEY…I used to love him, but he has not progressed at all..or maybe Tim??? But Tim has progressed, so I say Casey is going home.

  33. Lee was great and Crystal too, Siohban was great too. as from Tim, Mike, Aaron and Casey which he never take risk he always stay in the comfort zone, he might be good looking but that all he has. My top 3 are Crystal, Lee and Siobhan

  34. Crystal is a mental mess. She was stopped by Ryan S. when she had packed, was in the parking lot to leave and go back home last week. This week, crying. Always something. But, she is a great singer – just messed up mentally.
    Big Mike lived on the “new baby” thing for weeks, however, he is not a good singer. I thought his slamming Ryan S. on stage should have sent him home, but he was saved so he would still be in competion when Obama appears via video. Mike should be the one kicked off tonight, if anyone is kicked off.
    Siobhan screams too much. With more training, she could be a Barbara Streisand, but not now. Needs voice instructor.
    Casey, Dewyze, and Aaron are the best singers, but, Am. Idol decides who they want and who will make it thru. American Idol is in charge of the vote counting.
    Tim has been kicked around from day one. Simon has said horrible things to him and about him, and the other judges joined him in the “criticizing and embarrassing” games they play. I wish Tim could continue until the top two just to irritate the judges.

  35. Aaron is really good!!! He is always doing his best! you guys should give him more credit, he is an awsome sinnger. I am not saying he should win but he was better then Siobhan and Mike. He is really good for his age! I hope that he will make it far! I hope he is on of the top 6!

  36. American Idol is a singing contest – that’s the bottom line. Of all the contestants, Crystal and Lee are the top performers. I worry that if Crystal wins (and she likely will) that she will never cope with the ‘fame and fortune’ … it’s SO unfortunate – you can see it even in her father …my goodness, such a shame. She did an outstanding job last night and finally, looked the part. There still is a huge part of me though, that feels the ‘natural performer’ is really Lee. Good luck to them both!

  37. Hi crystal ,blessing on you my sister ,I know you felt the most high in you when you sang that song ,people get ready because i felt it too ,i`m jamaican and `ave been through so much in my life to the point were i`m dryed up havent shead a thear for so long and i`m here crying a day after releasing some of my pain bless you ,you are already there ,the thing you`ave been through was to get you here, love Andrew AKA wilderness child.

  38. @taymaro #34 Sung, not sang you dolt. Learn proper english or at least don’t humiliate yourself any further. Not to mention, your rhyme and meter are dismally wanting.

  39. Crystal, too me is the next American Idol. She is a natural and so honest and real. I knew deep in my heart when she shed those tears that it was about her Father, and lo and behold there he was in the audience for the first time. She is a brimming “janice joplin, without the drugs n alcohol.” She is my favorite!

  40. I know Crystal is talented, but the judges might as well stop the show now … they so want her to win. Lee is great, and I’m voting for him. The judges are so unfair to S. Magnus, and I don’t know what they want from her … maybe they want her to get voted off now. I’m tired of all the attention given to Mike. I just wish he would go. I thought Aaron did a great job last night, but I still am pulling for Lee!

  41. The show is so biased this year. Crystal, Crystal, Crystal !!! I’m sick of her and the judges. I’m voting for Lee (he’s great)! Obviously, Kara (can’t stand her) & Simon don’t seem to think there is any other talent this year other than Bowersox. I beg to differ with them !

  42. I’ve had enough of the judges and Bowersox. Because they want her to win so badly, it makes me keep voting for others, especially Lee.

  43. I like arron kelly,big mike,lee and crystal.If i had to pick the best it would have to be Lee or big mike but i have to pick one and only. if i had to pick who would win it would have to be crystal but i want lee to win the most but i just have a feeling that crystal is going to win this year.it would be so exciting if lee wins the whole thing.i would by every cd or albulm he would make. i would be his biggest fan ever lived.Some people think crystal is the best but i love lee my sister kelly thinks he is so hot. She gots good taste i think he is hot,too. so me and kelly love lee let him win.love lee so much wish i could meet him.we love you lee so much.

  44. I agree with Keri?….Crystal is the BEST! Teenagers HAVE TO STOP calling in to vote on who the cutest boy is!!! It is a SINGING competition!! and Crystal Bowersox is by far the BEST singer this year! LOVE HER!! Lee is also good, i think those two should be the final two, but Crystal should take it all!!!!

  45. @ Canyon

    Sung did not rhyme or even come close. And as for the rhyme, at least I wrote my own in about 30 seconds instead of relying on someone else to make my point for me. LUV YA!

  46. Bring back Lily Scott. I wish she was part of the top 12. Hope to hear more of her music! Crystal and Lee, WOW! You leave me wanting more….bring it!

  47. About time Tim is voted off. The guy couldn’t sing. And those who keep him on might have booted someone who could sing.Lets be real if you vote for the worse and keep him on too see if he could be the winner. You are hurting him more then you know.Reason is sooner or later people will start too hate (HIM), and hate him alot.
    So your not helping tim by keeping him on this long but hurting him in the long run.
    Now let’s the real American Idol begin,and see who will win for their talent.

  48. @ taymaro #61- My point exactly. Even relying on poetic license you don’t change the tense of a word solely to improve the rhyme. Furthermore, I’d prefer to quote an accomplished poet than prove myself an inept one.

  49. We all can hear and see and feel
    The songs the contestants sang
    And still we differ in our thoughts
    Though we all heard the same

    The very fact that we disagree
    And do not simply follow suit
    Demonstrates the intelligence
    That within us all was put

    So therefore as blind men walk
    And can only feel not see
    They only have those parts which were felt
    And on those their opinions will be

    But we with all our senses intact
    Experience the entirety
    And yet we still have different views
    And that’s the way it’ll always be

    Ok, I fixed it. Feel better now? But you will have to improve my “meter”, ’cause I don’t know what that means. Thanks Canyon!! Your opinion and advice is really helping me to improve. But it still didn’t change the moral of the story:

    Opinions are as anuses
    Each one possesses his own
    And through the gift of liberty
    We can offer up either one

  50. Ok, I found this on poetic meter:

    In poetry, the meter (or metre) is the basic rhythmic structure of a verse. Many traditional verse forms prescribe a specific verse meter, or a certain set of meters alternating in a particular order. Prosody is a more general linguistic term, that includes poetical meter but also the rhythmic aspects of prose, whether formal or informalvary from language to language, and sometimes between poetic traditions.

    But I noticed even on Wikipedia that the word “informalvary” might be a typo. Hmmmmm, a mistake by an accomplished entity such as Wikipedia? Interesting indeed.

  51. okay this is getting rediculous! why are yall arguing about poetry?? this is american idol comments. get over it already! or get each others email address’s and discuss it amoungst yourselves!!! geez!

  52. okay this is getting rediculous! why are yall arguing about poetry?? this is american idol comments. get over it already! or get each others email address’s and discuss it amoungst yourselves!!! geez!

  53. okay this is getting rediculous! why are yall arguing about poetry?? this is american idol comments. get over it already! or get each others email address’s and discuss it amoungst yourselves!!! geez!

  54. Lee is definitly my favorite. Crystals good, but I’m kind of bored with her being put on a pedistal. Lee has a sexy, awesome voice that I can’t get enough of. Soiban is terrible, she keeps getting worse as the weeks go on, she should have went home 4 weeks ago. Casey is only there because girls think he’s cute, but it won’t be long before he’s gone. He is incapable of doing anything other than his bluesy guitar thing, without it he’s nothing. Tim ruined a wonderful song, to think I was excited about that song. Aarons ok, but not great. I like mike, but I have a hard time watching him sing, he looks silly, but that’s not the point. I think katie should have never went home, she’s great and I hope to hear more of her. In the end I expect lee to win, because they will want to take crystals versatility and put it to use right away, not stick her in the year-long idol shinanigans. Cuz answer me this, when was the last time you actually heard anytthing about the actual winner of american idol? Yes, jordin sparks year. And before that, carrie underwood. Adam lambert didn’t win and he’s more famous than the guy that did win, who’s name currently escapes me. But I will definitly be following lee after ai, no matter what.

  55. para mi las pocisiones serian #1 para siobhan #2 para lee deWyze #3 para crystal bowersox #4 para casey james #5 Aaron kelly #6 para michael lynche y #7 tim urbano eliminado. creo que deberian quedar asi hadta terminar la competencia =)i love siobhan.

  56. I think crystal has the most annoying voice. Not to mention every week is starting to sound the same from her

  57. I think Crystal will win, but I think Lee is awesome!! They’re going to be the top two for sure.
    The judges are so unfair to Siobhan. I don’t know what more they want from her. She sounds great compared to some of them.

  58. When I saw that there was a list of songs that the contestants had to choose from, I’m kind of surprised how many of them were criticized for NOT picking one that was INSPIRATIONAL. Who offered the choices then ????

    I agree with what Alicia Lee said. Most of the winners seem to go nowhere. Runners up try harder and don’t have to do the Ms/Mr America BS promo stuff — unless they really want to, of course. Then that’s genuine. Liked David Cook’s feelings and involvement with the cause.

    What excited me most this week, was when I jumped up and cheered and scared my dawg all to pieces, was when Tim was announced as the one to go home. Sorry Tim. You were good at times, but not the one to represent America, and the VFTW messed with you. Or maybe not. Maybe that made you more determined. I do love the songs you sing in the low register. Not many can do that.

    I’m still stuck on Crystal. If she and Lee are in competition for the top, they are BOTH in a place of having to LET GO and blow us away emotionally !!! Both somewhat hesitant. Maybe living in the house gives them confidence with each other – and love.

    This is the ONLY competition show I’ve ever watched where the competitors grow to LOVE each other sooo much. Must be the MUSIC !!!! They are so lucky – most of them will make some very close lifetime friends going thru this.

  59. Forgot to add my feelings about Siobhan. She is a hippy’s daughter (I think) and she seems to live and breathe music and LIFE. Her voice is true. She hasn’t “screamed” since she was told not to. (Adam did that all the time.) She has chosen songs where she could control her voice and she can blow us away. I don’t know why her reviews are as they are. I love her. I will buy her albums, definitely, no matter where she stands in the competition.

  60. Music is such a subjective area, that not everyone will agree with everyone’s opinions on the American Idol performances.

    So from someone from Australia watching it, Crystal and Lee are by far the better performers and really try to do things differently all week. Michael and Aaron have amazing voices but really need to pull something out of the bag otherwise they will sink into boredom. Casey started off good, but is too scared to take risks. Siobhan has a great voice but chooses the wrong songs. Album wise, I would buy Crystal’s DEFINATELY and I hope she doesn’t win as this way she can bring out an album with tracks that she wants, not what is written in the Idol contract. Prime example, Adam Lambert vs Kris (whats-his-name).

    Kris is not known outside of the USA but Adam is and will have a bigger career than Kris will ever have. Because he has talent. Natural, charismatic talent. Just like Chrystal.

    BTW was it me or did anyone else see that Casey was uncomfortable with a comment made about Kara and her facsination for him?

  61. apparently one of the judges already “predicted” the final two would be a girl and a boy, won’t be two girls, won’t be two boys

  62. Crystal should be Idol 2010. Crystal is a an amazing artist with a divine voice. I love her song selections, her honesty and her authenticity. Crystal is the next Janis Joplin!

    The judges are right. Please vote for Crystal!

  63. Crystal has none of Joplin’s edginess, passion, energy or creativity. She’s a faded, washed out, boring mess.

  64. April 21st, 2010 at 2:09 PM
    Lee and Crystal were by far the best..going home tonight? CASEY…I used to love him, but he has not progressed at all..or maybe Tim??? But Tim has progressed, so I say@ those who think Crystal’s tears are fake

    You are stupid!… no other word for it….

    This girl has so much talent that she does not need to rely on pitiful stunts, like removing shirts or sliding across the stage or promoting parenthood.

    Crystal has more talent than all the others put together….

    I can not believe the people who like casey… His voice range is terrible, and it speaks volumes when we are supposed to be judging a singing contest and comments like “The sound mixer allowed us to actually hear his guitar” tells you that listening to someone’s guitar is far better than listening to him sing!

    @taymaro #34 Sung, not sang you dolt. Learn proper english or at least don’t humiliate yourself any further. Not to mention, your rhyme and meter are dismally wanting.

    Crystal, too me is the next American Idol. She is a natural and so honest and real. I knew deep in my heart when she shed those tears that it was about her Father, and lo and behold there he was in the audience for the first time. She is a brimming “janice joplin, without the drugs n alcohol.” She is my favorite!

    I know Crystal is talented, but the judges might as well stop the show now … they so want her to win. Lee is great, and I’m voting for him. The judges are so unfair to S. Magnus, and I don’t know what they want from her … maybe they want her to get voted off now. I’m tired of all the attention given to Mike. I just wish he would go. I thought Aaron did a great job last night, but I still am pulling for Lee!

    The show is so biased this year. Crystal, Crystal, Crystal !!! I’m sick of her and the judges. I’m voting for Lee (he’s great)! Obviously, Kara (can’t stand her) & Simon don’t seem to think there is any other talent this year other than Bowersox. I beg to differ with them !

    I’ve had enough of the judges and Bowersox. Because they want her to win so badly, it makes me keep voting for others, especially Lee.

    I like arron kelly,big mike,lee and crystal.If i had to pick the best it would have to be Lee or big mike but i have to pick one and only. if i had to pick who would win it would have to be crystal but i want lee to win the most but i just have a feeling that crystal is going to win this year.it would be so exciting if lee wins the whole thing.i would by every cd or albulm he would make. i would be his biggest fan ever lived.Some people think crystal is the best but i love lee my sister kelly thinks he is so hot. She gots good taste i think he is hot,too. so me and kelly love lee let him win.love lee so much wish i could meet him.we love you lee so much.

    I agree with Keri?….Crystal is the BEST! Teenagers HAVE TO STOP calling in to vote on who the cutest boy is!!! It is a SINGING competition!! and Crystal Bowersox is by far the BEST singer this year! LOVE HER!! Lee is also good, i think those two should be the final two, but Crystal should take it all!!!!

    @ Canyon

    Sung did not rhyme or even come close. And as for the rhyme, at least I wrote my own in about 30 seconds instead of relying on someone else to make my point for me. LUV YA!

    About time Tim is voted off. The guy couldn’t sing. And those who keep him on might have booted someone who could sing.Lets be real if you vote for the worse and keep him on too see if he could be the winner. You are hurting him more then you know.Reason is sooner or later people will start too hate (HIM), and hate him alot.
    So your not helping tim by keeping him on this long but hurting him in the long run.
    Now let’s the real American Idol begin,and see who will win for their talent.

    Crystal Bowersox is really a great singer and i wish to hear more of her music/voice.

    @ taymaro #61- My point exactly. Even relying on poetic license you don’t change the tense of a word solely to improve the rhyme. Furthermore, I’d prefer to quote an accomplished poet than prove myself an inept one.

    67.Taymaro

    April 22nd, 2010 at 1:53 PM
    We all can hear and see and feel
    The songs the contestants sang
    And still we differ in our thoughts
    Though we all heard the same

    The very fact that we disagree
    And do not simply follow suit
    Demonstrates the intelligence
    That within us all was put

    So therefore as blind men walk
    And can only feel not see
    They only have those parts which were felt
    And on those their opinions will be

    But we with all our senses intact
    Experience the entirety
    And yet we still have different views
    And that’s the way it’ll always be

    Ok, I fixed it. Feel better now? But you will have to improve my “meter”, ’cause I don’t know what that means. Thanks Canyon!! Your opinion and advice is really helping me to improve. But it still didn’t change the moral of the story:

    Opinions are as anuses
    Each one possesses his own
    And through the gift of liberty
    We can offer up either one

    Ok, I found this on poetic meter:

    In poetry, the meter (or metre) is the basic rhythmic structure of a verse. Many traditional verse forms prescribe a specific verse meter, or a certain set of meters alternating in a particular order. Prosody is a more general linguistic term, that includes poetical meter but also the rhythmic aspects of prose, whether formal or informalvary from language to language, and sometimes between poetic traditions.

    But I noticed even on Wikipedia that the word “informalvary” might be a typo. Hmmmmm, a mistake by an accomplished entity such as Wikipedia? Interesting indeed.

    Lee is definitly my favorite. Crystals good, but I’m kind of bored with her being put on a pedistal. Lee has a sexy, awesome voice that I can’t get enough of. Soiban is terrible, she keeps getting worse as the weeks go on, she should have went home 4 weeks ago. Casey is only there because girls think he’s cute, but it won’t be long before he’s gone. He is incapable of doing anything other than his bluesy guitar thing, without it he’s nothing. Tim ruined a wonderful song, to think I was excited about that song. Aarons ok, but not great. I like mike, but I have a hard time watching him sing, he looks silly, but that’s not the point. I think katie should have never went home, she’s great and I hope to hear more of her. In the end I expect lee to win, because they will want to take crystals versatility and put it to use right away, not stick her in the year-long idol shinanigans. Cuz answer me this, when was the last time you actually heard anytthing about the actual winner of american idol? Yes, jordin sparks year. And before that, carrie underwood. Adam lambert didn’t win and he’s more famous than the guy that did win, who’s name currently escapes me. But I will definitly be following lee after ai, no matter what.

    I think crystal has the most annoying voice. Not to mention every week is starting to sound the same from her

    78.KJ

    April 22nd, 2010 at 7:51 PM
    I think Crystal will win, but I think Lee is awesome!! They’re going to be the top two for sure.
    The judges are so unfair to Siobhan. I don’t know what more they want from her. She sounds great compared to some of them.

    Lee Dwyze will be the next AI 2010.,He is amazing and great performer.,

    When I saw that there was a list of songs that the contestants had to choose from, I’m kind of surprised how many of them were criticized for NOT picking one that was INSPIRATIONAL. Who offered the choices then ????

    I agree with what Alicia Lee said. Most of the winners seem to go nowhere. Runners up try harder and don’t have to do the Ms/Mr America BS promo stuff — unless they really want to, of course. Then that’s genuine. Liked David Cook’s feelings and involvement with the cause.

    What excited me most this week, was when I jumped up and cheered and scared my dawg all to pieces, was when Tim was announced as the one to go home. Sorry Tim. You were good at times, but not the one to represent America, and the VFTW messed with you. Or maybe not. Maybe that made you more determined. I do love the songs you sing in the low register. Not many can do that.

    I’m still stuck on Crystal. If she and Lee are in competition for the top, they are BOTH in a place of having to LET GO and blow us away emotionally !!! Both somewhat hesitant. Maybe living in the house gives them confidence with each other – and love.

    This is the ONLY competition show I’ve ever watched where the competitors grow to LOVE each other sooo much. Must be the MUSIC !!!! They are so lucky – most of them will make some very close lifetime friends going thru this.

    Forgot to add my feelings about Siobhan. She is a hippy’s daughter (I think) and she seems to live and breathe music and LIFE. Her voice is true. She hasn’t “screamed” since she was told not to. (Adam did that all the time.) She has chosen songs where she could control her voice and she can blow us away. I don’t know why her reviews are as they are. I love her. I will buy her albums, definitely, no matter where she stands in the competition.

    Music is such a subjective area, that not everyone will agree with everyone’s opinions on the American Idol performances.

    So from someone from Australia watching it, Crystal and Lee are by far the better performers and really try to do things differently all week. Michael and Aaron have amazing voices but really need to pull something out of the bag otherwise they will sink into boredom. Casey started off good, but is too scared to take risks. Siobhan has a great voice but chooses the wrong songs. Album wise, I would buy Crystal’s DEFINATELY and I hope she doesn’t win as this way she can bring out an album with tracks that she wants, not what is written in the Idol contract. Prime example, Adam Lambert vs Kris (whats-his-name).

    Kris is not known outside of the USA but Adam is and will have a bigger career than Kris will ever have. Because he has talent. Natural, charismatic talent. Just like Chrystal.

    BTW was it me or did anyone else see that Casey was uncomfortable with a comment made about Kara and her facsination for him?

    84.ronnie

    April 23rd, 2010 at 12:50 AM
    apparently one of the judges already “predicted” the final two would be a girl and a boy, won’t be two girls, won’t be two boys

    Crystal should be Idol 2010. Crystal is a an amazing artist with a divine voice. I love her song selections, her honesty and her authenticity. Crystal is the next Janis Joplin!

    The judges are right. Please vote for Crystal!

    86.Canyon

    April 24th, 2010 at 8:56 PM
    Crystal has none of Joplin’s edginess, passion, energy or creativity. She’s a faded, washed out, boring mess.

  65. CRYSTAL tears killed the rest…but it was actually nothing special…thats why Women’s cry is scary for..

  66. What we need to know is if the show is looking for an Idol who can sing others’ songs well only or someone who can be creative about music and make new sounds to old songs or even write new ones… if it’s the latter, than Lee is the best of the bunch!

  67. Crystal Bowersox and Michael Lynche you guys are more than amazing and i always look forward to seeing you guys sing….

    So pure, so Pleasant…

  68. I love Siobhan Magnus the most.Sadly,i can’t vote because i’m from Singapore.Many people here love her too!I hope to see Crystal Bowersox and Siobhan Magnus in the finals…
