We’ve got a poll below for your favorite American Idol singer of the night. Share your thoughts in the comments section below!
I’d have preferred Babyface as a mentor, but OK.
Babyface mentor in the voice..
The ball is rolling. Give it up for your Top 10! Who do you pick? Who will own the night?
Who knows… 🙂 But, it would be great if Jessica will nail it again! 🙂
yesssss its Jessica baby!
I know right! Another standing o from the audience—Wow!!!!!!!! WE love ya’!
I’ve a feeling that a guy will going home tomorrow :p
No, 2 girl will go home then 1 guy
If a girl were to go home tommorow I see it being either Ms Van Pelt or Skylar Laine
Deandre seems a little nervous and jerky….don’t like the song choice..i will give him a C…he could be in trouble.
I thought he did great! He has great energy when he’s performing. Unlike a lot of the other contestants, I love how he picks upbeat songs to show that he has rhythm and vibe. He can do ballads and uptempo and I hope he stays tomorrow!
Deandre is below average. SHouldnt be in top 10..he will lower the overall calibre of talent. He should go, no question.
I like Erika tonight..i am glad she changed it enough that it was not karoake….
I do, too. She made that change at the perfect time. At first I thought she looked a bit like Kris [Kardashian] Jenner, but it’s really more of a Joan Jett look. Deandre was great!
I agree, Erika’s new look is pretty eye-popping . Shows she’s brave and has style, which could be used as an asset. Not to mention her vocals are very rich and nice to listen to.
I loved Deandre tonight. The kid is fearless with his uptempo “island vibe”. He’s showing off his diversity, which is good.
Although starting off the show can be hard to get votes in the end, I hope America does the right thing and keep these 2 in!
I just hated that she went home instead of HeeJun. I know we can’t do anything…. Just expressing a bad feeling.
Has Tommy Hilfiger had an impact? How do they look?
i can’t see a big difference so far..except maybe erika..she had a totally new look.
i made a joke last week that maybe Josh could sing sitting down, since his movements really distract me..very feminine and spastic…i was hoping he stayed in the chair. but i think he was just ok…
Joshua was terrific! Johnny Mathis meets Luther V. You go, Josh.
Good one! He DOES remind me a little of Johnny Mathis!!
Wow, I agree! Joshua does remind me of Johnny Mathis!
Skylar: complete failure. Clothes [hippie tulip look], song [pitchy, strained]. Just bad.
Oh, oh. Was it fatal???
Not “going home” fatal, but not up to her usual standard.
Not “going home” fatal, just not up to her usual.
I really like Skylar, but that was not good..she really started bad and it never really got going..she is better with high energy songs. if she makes it to the country night..she will rock.
i love skylar! and i dont even like country. she is a little Reba
That was elise’s best performance. i have never liked her..but she did really well tonight.
Elise did AMMMMAAAAZZIIINNNNGGG! So happy! She’s always been one o’ my faves!
leave Phil alone..tommy…you just don’t get Phil..
Phil gives me chills…man is he good!
PP needs some kidney right? maybe you can spare him one?
I think P2 should be in it for the long-haul. He is so great! Colton D. impressed me a lot last night also. Still not crazy about the hair on that boy.
Anyone else think Heejun needs to start showing he’s more serious about winning? It seems his goal was to make Top 10 and tour. I really like the guy and he definitely adds something different to the usual mix – but his performance wasn’t stellar by a long shot.
I think last night was a little harder to call. Most everyone did a good job with their chosen BJ song.
Heejun was not serious at all about last night. I agree totally.
Meh Phill is on pitch. Sounds like a dying dog. What else is new?
sean you just don’t know talent…if you find a dying dog that sounds like phil, perhaps you should get him a record deal.
phil sucks! it was terrible!
Somehow, unfortunately P2 decided to channel Lee DeWyze and off key at that. Total crap!
you are deaf.
yah right craaaaap
you clearly don’t know what “off key” is. He was slightly pitchy maybe like once if at all, but he wasn’t off key.
Phillip rocks!!! He is truly an artist!
Nope. He sucks
I would suck him
this is getting funny let’s profound our topic!
So far from the comments sounds like Elise has been the best of the night…hoping Hollie changes that
Phil was the best…elise did her best, but not as good as phil…
Yay! Still hoping for Hollie to do well.
Mary, no way. We get it , you love Phil, but I believe Elise did better. *sticks tongue out*
Sounds like “the Marys” have the most discriminating and dead-on taste. (I’m Mary, too and I PHIL is my reason to watch AI this year!!!)
Elise did amazing! So far the other weren’t even in her leauge. I felt bad for Phil having to follow her. Espicially with how awful he did
sean you are messed up.
Yay Hollie!!!!! Not sure if I like her hair curly like that though…
Doesn’t matter what Phil does in this competition..he is in his own class..the rest are just average.
I’m with you Mary.
if the rest are just average then PP is below average
i think yours is a case of severe obsession
VERY below average
but he’s looks is above cute
but he’s looks is above cute
Totally agree, he is awesome!
i think you are losing your objectivity. bet you masturbate every time PP performs.
And would that class be a rusty F150?
who do you think will get the pimp spot?///// hope it’s jessica but i kow they really want to put someone else so their 3rd horse will come true
options are Jessica, Colton or Heejun… hmmm.
i know it wont be jessica bec theyve been trying to tone her down, but who know.. even last week i got a feeling it would be colton
I think it’s gonna go to Colton.
What is Hollie wearing!?!? It’s official I hate this Tommy guy…
Hollie is one of my favorites, but this was not good. The look was so-so, but another ballad and she didn’t do it well.
Yeah this song didn’t have any huge notes that she could shine with. And I felt her look tonight made her look any younger
This song’s way to small for Hollie’s huge voice
Agree that Hollie’s voice is really strong. But how come she didn’t nail “such a small song”?
hollie does look nice tonight..song was ok..but i really hate this song even when billy does it…she did ok.
Lose Tommy Hilfiger. He can’t sell his own clothes, let alone dress someone for Idol.
wonder how much he paid Idol to be their sylist? i am sure there was some big bucks paid out.
Hilfiger is a “yesterday” designer. Nobody wears his clothes anymore. I bet he paid AI big money just to be on it.
lol! He is yesterdays designs, that is for sure!
Ya but didn’t he punch Axl Rose in the face a while back?
they had to give elise a standing O because she needs to be out of the bottom 3. plus not to mention those girls that needed to be shown on TV for the public to know that she has good personality. although too planned & schemic I think she’s one of the best in this season.. 🙂
Even with the standing O and bringing her students on stage – I think she’s still going to fighting an uphill battle. She’s got a great voice – I’ve always thought so – but her personality just doesn’t seem bring forth and warm fuzzies from the general mass.
That’s it, I have to add that one on my must have characteristic to win idol next year. Where can I buy those “Warm Fuzzies” can I get them on-line? Just kidding, Noodlesoup , I am in my weekly lobotomy session, got to entertain myself, or I will loose my mind, oooops 😀
I like Hailey, nice to see her. This year I have no horse in the race yet.
Is it just me or is Heejun a very mediocre singer?
HeeJun i like the attempt..glad no sad ballad..but very pitchy and the low register was a miss…but enjoyed your choice…but it was karoake at best..but at least we didn’t fall asleep.
Yeah, he had a good go at it. At least he tried, and did alright. It wasn’t amazing or the best, but he’s not gonna lay down and give up, which showed in his song choice. Good job HeeJun!
Heejun screwed up the lyrics. Otherwise good performance.
For me it was the first performance of the night that made me feel good, the singing, not the best, but it’s the performance I liked the most. Go figure.
i am not a heejun fan but he is actually great. not mediocre, is just that his wrong choices of song makes him look like an ordinary singer.. he got something in his voice but i dnt know…. just picking the right song
HeeJun was awful! I can’t believe the judges let him off the hook, especially after the way they tore up Hollie! Most of the song HeeJun was not even singing. When he tried to sing his vocals were all over the place. Terrible. Hollie did very good except for the one bad “bump” near the end. Cannot believe the judges (again this year).
For the record Hollie was absolutely awful heejuan has a great voice he just isn’t choosing the right song your just pissed Hollie is going home tommarow lawlzzz
lol, we’ll see.
i agree that she was awful tonight but she’s not going home tonight because of her fan base
I think we should see Skylar going before Hollie. Just think Hollie could use more help in her overall appearance – cut out the sparklie duds. I keep looking for Lawrence Welk’s Orchestra to be backing her up!
Joshua and Elise killed it tonight.
Jessica has her chance to steal the show.
If Jessica listens to this cristicism it will help.
was it bad?
No Diddy gave her some cristicism before the performance.
how will you rate her performance?
She is very talented but she has not found herself..she has mostly great pitch..gets a little screechy at times…but she did ok…she over sings to show off. she still is above the bottom three..she is safe.
She did, that’s why she did really well in the live performance.
Really rooting for Hollie!
I hope her performance won’t hurt her in the ways of voting. And is it just me or does her hair look MUCH better straight?
I actually thought her performance was good. She put a lot of emotion into it. I felt the song, and I don’t think the judges gave her enough credit. I might be a little bias, just because I love Hollie’s tone so much 🙂
i think u need to pray just more after her performance earlier. it was like crazy bad!!!
She did good..but she does show off and over sing things..and doesn’t really feel the song. Diddy hit the nail on the head..but she is so young
I still can’t get into her doing the pageant arms and that arm keeping pace when the music ascends. And she does over sing.
I agree. How come in the past the pageant teens didn’t fly, but suddenly it’s OK?
Yes, Diddy was right, but his comments referred to her rehearsal. Should we not comment on the live performance instead? Jessica listened to her two mentors, took out what was wrong with her performance, and wowed us yet again.
HI Mfav one is Erika van PElT Phillip Phillp
I wonder when scientests are going to take this girl to a lab and try to clone her vocal cords xD
Heejun’s performance made me smile 🙂 the vocal wasn’t at his best but he was the most fun to watch…..
Anddddddd Jessica. Wow. She is quite the singer.
what are the judges comments on her?
Jessica is a perfect copier and hard to believe for me…there just something not right about her
completely agree. She can mimic any song perfectly. & Is it just me, or does she seem kind of phony??
Think Thia Meghia, robotic, technically perfect, studied but not felt.
say, were you referring to Hollie? robotic, studied but not felt? I couldn’t add the technically perfect because it doesn’t fit.
There is something not right about you.
at least she’s perfect and not just a bigot hater like you.
aand BENTLY is the perfect BASHER
and BENTLY is the perfect BASHER
actually, one qualities if a good singer is that it can mimic voices of every great singers. A voice that has no limits or boundaries be it a big voice or just an ordinary one. And Jessica can nailed them effortlessly. 🙂
A parrot is just a parrot. No originality.
another preacher blah blah blah…how can she copy???my goodness you’re dumb..the singer is original sang by a male singer…she did a women version and she killed it…another issue just to brag down Jessica??? oh my gheee…just look and listen to Hollie’s performance ever since her fans are claiming that she has a huge voice, have a beautiful range..but for me here she is…—-> inconsistency of her vocal range, kinda flat on some notes, CAN”T SUSTAIN notes till the end..how many times am i going to tell you that Hollie is Overrated! whew! Heejun is for sure belongs to bottom 3…3rd time outstanding ovation for Jessica is already an achievement for her!
Jessica can sing any songs…and nailed her last performance…what’s new???? THE WHISTLE!!! beat that!
Hollie – nothing new…boring!
my 2 cents. lol.
Who do you think she copied this time? Surely not Billy Joel, because this song is relatively obscure compared to his other songs. I didn’t see any video of it before Jessica sang it and it wan never mentioned in the forums.
Hahahaha…. I was laughing at your comment @cbae4a2a90440d9464f02a0f7ee4f893:disqus . How can she copy Billy Joel? Jeeezz….. Is Billy gay? ——— HE’S NOT!!!!! And Jessica—-is a female contestant!
Please, review first the original composer before you start commenting about the contestants–Especially Jessica!
Colton is cliche…fake punk…sorry..just be yourself Colton..no need to be a tough..we know you are not…why not be yourself..at least Phil is just Phil…he doesn’t need a costume.
Maybe this is who he wants to be.
Phil may just be Phil but he’s also very cliche. If you look back for the past four season people exactly like Phil have won.
The only artist who is TRULY unique this season is Elise
Phil IMO is the guy you call when your car breaks down and then he brings the tow truck. This boy, while pleasant and polite is NOT a singer.
Maybe Elise is unique and can really sing but her attitude and frowning on stage and in pictures really suck!
True. I always said he comes across as being more emo/indie/alt rather than hard punk or rock/grunge, whatever you wanna call it. He should stick with his style and run with it, otherwise America is gonna reject him for trying to hard. Come on Colton, you can pull it together!
you dont know what your talking about your TV is probably broken or something. stop being a hater Colton is the Shit!!! He can out sing you anytime.
i hope he can outsing me…and i am not in the contest. colton can sing, but he likes to dress like something he is not.
elise testone = haley reinhart …
Except the judges laid into Haley night after night, whereas Elise gets praised continuously by them. The two are similar in that the audience just seems to reject them no matter how hard they try. Hopefully you’re right, and there will be a turning point for Elise like there was for Haley (Rolling in the Deep) where the rest of us will start to recognize the hot talent this girl has.
Speaking of: Did you guys check out Haley’s hot new single “Free” on iTunes, she sounds GREAT!
phil is the best, if he keeps it up he could win the whole thing
Ok this song, piano man, i have heard in piano bars from coast to coast….Colton was just average. he needs to get a hair cut and stop pretending..he is not a rocker from the 70’s…he is a nice kid from tennessee…nothing wrong with being who you are….
Yeah, especially if you insist on flying the Christian flag. Modesty and humility are Christian values. His style is confusing when he tries to put out his message.
colton was great tonight
I totally Agree…I Love Colton…He is definitely getting my Vote and will be Safe…
Jessica is just an ordinary singer
But Phil is the unique and out the box singer
well you better put phil back to his box!
ordinary singer? you must be kidding yourself big time.
clean your ears!
Colton: I’m not a fan.
But that was a great performance.
I was shocked that Randy Jackson did not know that “Shameless” sung by Garth Brooks was one of the biggest hits ever. J Lo & Steven also seemed puzzled.
How can one give open opinions if they don’t know music or the artist?
I am going to focus on the next coming X Factor where true feedback is given. Even if it hurts! Who is Randy Jackson, I know who Perry is!
DeAndre Brackensick the next American Idol xoxoxox
Agreed! The kid is multidimensional, can turn on the swag when needed, the sex appeal if that’s what it calls for, or the happy, rhythmic island vibe if the performance needs it. He can be our balladeer/reggae skank master, cause the guy has got BrackenSICCKK skills!!
I think he has mad vocals and crazy potential and if given the right song he could bring the house down. He’s been under the radar for the most part, so I don’t think people really get him or realize that he really is one of the most talented singers on the show. I’d love for him to sing a really powerful ballad where he could really blast off and show off his vocal skills holding both the high notes and the low notes. His octave range is insane and nobody else on the show can hit the notes that he can hit and he does it effortlessly! I’m so hoping he gets to sing a song that will display what he’s really capable of before he’s voted off. He’s one of my favorites for sure and he’s another one who is unique and identifiable if you were to hear him on the radio. Some of the others, like Holly, are great singers, but they aren’t unique or identifiable, in my opinion, so I wouldn’t be able to tell them apart from any other ballad singer if I heard them on the radio. Just my two cents.
Ok lets see who Phil will have back next week for The Phillip Phillips Show? Phil stands alone..
if i had to pick a bottom three i would pick Heejun, Deandre, and Hollie or maybe Joshua…..I would send HeeJun home…I really did not call it last week at all…but i would watch an hour of Phil alone.
I am sorry but your obsession seems like a medical problem. Haha. I agree Heejun has been the worst two weeks in a row, he NEEDS to leave!
i hope there is no cure.
Sadly you are right on 2 accounts, Deandre and HeeJun, although I think HeeJun has a stronger fan base. I really hope Deandre can stay as I think this guy has something. But alas, it’s up to the rest of you, America.
I’m guessing Phil gave the judges $20 to make the judges call him a stand out
Sean you are like the kid in grade school who makes fun of the girl he secretly likes. You pick on Phil so much its obvious. You loooooove him.
wooooow! Jessica did great tonight!!! wooooooow
did she got a standing o?
Yes from the three judges and the audience. Goose bumps
HER THIRD STANDING O! oh my!
yuuuuup!!! her third standing o!!! yeah baby!!!
What was the judges comments on her?
as i expected… Jessica still got the highest votes… :))
jessica sanchez is the most amazing, unique, pitch perfect singer on the competition wow she’s the best
another standing ovation for Jessica …. wow …. great performance
5. Hollie 🙁
what show you watching?
it’s hard to say who the best is at this point, but the ones who should be going home soon are…
Still they can’t beat Jessica Sanchez..WHY ?
to me…. not a good week.
phil def did the best with the song. I love Skylar just wish she picked a different song that showed off her voice better. Same with Hollie. Jessica needs to take Jimmys advice and not try to show off, theres something so fake about her when she pushes, just be true and switch it up go up beat. Colton same thing really, trying to hard to prove something, just stay natural and true like phil or skylar or joshua. over all i think DeAndre, Heejun, and Erika or Elise are my bottom picks.
are you kidding me??? Jessica??? you just envy her, worst you want up beat song…why not others also like Hollie???
Jessica did listen to Diddy’s and Jimmy’s advice, and that’s why she came up this amazing performance. There are several areas that Jessica has to work on if she wants to be a great artist and singer, and she’s smart enough to listen to sound advice. No worries, she is quite young and has a lot of time ahead of her, even after Idol.
Oops… she came up WITH this amazing performance.
i think deandre is going home:( but i realy hope skyler stays.
The way I’d rank em now is Phillip, Jessica, Colton as the top 3. I mean overall, not just this week. They’ve yet to have a bad week. Sorta like in college football, those would be the undefeated teams.
The one loss teams would be Hollie, Skylar, Joshua, & Elise.
I think the bottom 3 should be Deandra, Erika, & Heejun. Heejun heads home I believe.
Going into this I had em ranked (overall) 1) Hollie, 2)Joshua, 3)Skylar,
4)Jessica, 5)Phillip, 6)Colton. There wasn’t a big gap between those 6, so a good or bad performance tonite (which happened) can shake em up a fair amount.
HOLLIE is ….. tsk. So frustrated with this girl
Someone here wrote that Hollie twitted tat she was going to do an upbeat song this week. Whatever happened to that?
Best to worst:
i think jessica should be at the no. 1
No because it’s my opinion and I think Elise is better than Jessica.
You expressed yours, i just expressed mine.
You said it as if my list was wrong and I should change it. Plus, you replied to my post, so yes, it was meant like that.
If the poll will keep going like that for the next coming weeks, I would probably think that the three highest votes would be in the final 3, Jessica, Colton and Phillip. But yeah, it won’t be Jessica, it’s gonna be a battle with the two boys in the finals, there’s a big chance of Jessica not winning the Idol.
But i really want Elise to go to the final 3, at least. Like Haley last year, well, who knows?
I also meant to say, I HATE Tommy Hillfinger. That guy is useless. I hope his comments aren’t on the show every week.
I’m glad Phillip told the guy in a nice way to get bent. He’s not enhancing these kids, he’s brutalizing em. I’ll give him credit on Erika, but the rest he was worse for em or no factor if they didn’t listen to him.
There will be a time when a good singer, I mean, A GOOD SINGER would go home earlier than we will ever imagine. Yeah, even Jessica. It’s like Pia last year, some people will think that many people will vote for that person, and that will lead to a shocking elimination, again.
Which proved to be right because Pia went nowhere after Idol. If any of them are really career worthy they’ll do fine after Idol. Not winning hasn’t hurt JHud, Adam, Daughtry etc.
I think this year’s pia is HOLLIE
Yeah, i think so, coz she sings ballad all the time… by the time she sings upbeat, she’ll go home, which scares me.
i am not scared if she’ll go home soon
Erika was the besttttttt… Why the producer put her always in the first part
My pics are JESSICA,COLTON,AND HOLLY,ELISE,AND HOLLY!
I love Joshua he gives me goosies…..when he sings..
Jessica sanchez did a great performance tonight.
I’m so sick of the Jessica Sanchez chick they are really over hyping her yea she sang it great but parts of the song it sounded like she was screaming and to me she is like Melanie Amaro yea she sings great but that’s it for me
She sings great, and performs like a pro. She puts me in mind of Beyonce. She’s fantastic, the complete package!
Wrong! Beyonce also dances and has sex appeal. Jessica is just a scared parrot.
so agree! she doesnt have the full package and thinks she has to push and show off which makes her come off wrong idk the word maybe a little too show off-ish idk. just not the best thing coming and going this year. top idol winners have been kelly, carrie, and now scotty is doing really well and they dont push it they stay true to themselves otheres like jennifer hudson, daughtry, Lauren alaina who didnt win are doing their own thing and staying true and doing great. true idols.
you do not make sense at all. to win any competition, one need to showcase their talent.
Jessica is great and owns the stage. Ill never get tired of her
yes you are right at one point. YOU ARE SICK. but that’s it. the rest of your statement is absurd.
Talent for talent. JESSICA SANCHEZ has got it all. What awesome voice!
Elise rocked this show. Clearly the best.
Not until Jessica came out and own the show
It’s Jessica , Phillip, and Colton
Jessica will be the next amerian idol 100%
not till the girl tweeners vote for Colton and Phillip. LOL.
Everybody has a Dream …. nice song …. amazing performance…
Sorry. At this point, Colton will be the next Idol. He is a true performer, a true musician, and a great singer. He looks like a star and performs like one. His Piano Man was the best vocal on the show this season. Amazing!!
colton will win because most ai voters are stupid little girls and fags like you.
Colton has nothing but a cute face. his singing is not really that cute. duh!
i like Colton…but singing alone, he’s nowhere compare to Jessica…. hehehe peace :))
If she isn’t something is wrong.
What I want is a Heejun Jessica finale, Heejun because it would be hilarious to see the reactions, and Jessica because she is amazing
Heejun in the Finale? You want to justify that AI is a big joke? I mean…please
Jessica was simply magnificent tonight…. However, I have to say that Elise is extremely talented and she did an outstanding job as well. Jessica, Elise, Phillip, Holly and Colton are all really great singers and performers… I love Phillip because he is “Real.” Elise has a great voice… and she’s got her own style when she’s up there… Holly has such great range in her voice… Colton is a great performer and Jessica is amazing… she’s off the charts completely. It’s a tough competition this year… They are all really, really good!
Best Of The Night: There were 3 I actually enjoyed the most… Elise, Jessica, and Colton performances. But, the award goes to…… Elise! Such a unique voice she has..
Worst Of The Night: Heejun. Need I say more?
Bottom 3: Heejun. DeAndre. Erika.
Going Home: Heejun. Well, I want it to be Heejun, but, I’m like 90% sure he will be staying -____- .. So, with that being said the bottom two will most likely be Erika and DeAndre..
well, vocally it was Heejun. Did he ever entertain you tonight? People will vote for him because of his quirkiness. But yeah, he’s gonna go home anytime soon, after DeAndre and Erika probably?
Even if Heejun lacked a bit of the vocals, he was entertaining and its hard for me to say he was the worst vocally because the first half of the night put me to sleep.
Heejun woke me up and so he gets my votes a long with Jessica
Another BALLAD for HOLLIE?!!! Tha’s not good. She would
surely be typecasted as a ballad singer. that’s all. ONLY BALLADS!!! Sing something new, something fast for us girl! Tire of you singing slow songs even if you have wonderful set of pipes. You’re only 18! You should be lively on stage and everything. I mean, not all the time. But you have to show what you’ve got. Eerrr
erica van pelt transformation was beautiful…as was her perfomance….absolutly loved it!!!
ELISE is this year’s ATTITUDE QUEEN and HALEY REINHART
HOLLIE is PIA TOSCANO
JOSHUA is JACOB LUSK
COLTON is an ADAM LAMBERT wannabe
PHILLIP is LEE/DAVID COOK/KRIS – so tired of them
SKYLAR is half of LAUREN
JESSICA is the most unique of them!!!
Dont know for the others
DeAndre is Naima-ish
Erika is a typical rock singer (which is great) Heejun is unique, well in a bad way, KARAOKE KING, but he entertains, yeah?
I would say Phillip is the most unique coz i’ve seen many people who sings like Jessica (but not as good as her). Elise is also unique, well not that much, but she sounds very great, for me. 🙂
Agree with Deandre, disagree with Phillips. i can’t see any uniqueness about him
Heejun is just awesome
i believe that guy is awesome too
In what way? Comical. He coud fit right on MAD TV or SLN
Sean and SalvX i heard next week they are moving the set out to a lake and Phil is going to walk across it…I don’t know why you think i am sick about Phil…I just can spot talent..Phil is awesome and that dude who said Phil was like the tow truck driver…hmmm..where do I need to breakdown..lol..sticks tongue out at SalvX…got to love my Phil…hey if you are reading this, why aren’t you voting..i got my phone on speed dial…Phillip Phillips – Moving Out – 1-866-436-5706
Jessica has an amazing voice…any song fits her..go go jessica..you deserve to win.
JESSICA is versatile. 😀
I think her voice is step above American Idol…don’t worry- if she doesn’t win, she will be on the radio soon enough anyway.
I think Hollie was great! Anyone who has heard Joel sing Honesty knows he sings it “pitchy”. Since she admittedly just learned the song, I thought she performed it spot on how Joel meant it to be performed.
hollie screwed the song! that was very bad man!
I think most of them just learned their songs. No excuses.
Thinking Colton had heard Piano Man before. Just a guess
Probably. That’s why I wrote MOST, not ALL. The older contestants are probably familiar with some Billy Joel songs.
no one can beat jessica!!! she own the song even the stage
Sorry. Colton owned the night BY FAR. His Piano Man was the best song done this season. Amazing vocals, amazing on the piano. Jessica wasn’t even second best – Mr. Phillips was that.
Vocals very good. Piano was very mediocre.
I luv Phillip and Colton and am hoping America finally understands true musicians….alternative music showcases creativity. You get it I agree 100%.
colton’s performance was crappy. not his best. he’ll be in the bottom 3 tomorrow. but don’t worry, he will not be eliminated because little girls will vote or him.
Colton is just awful. but cute
thats your opinion but for us, jessica is the star of the night and with her standing ovation from the judges, that is the proof that she own the night
Yeah, you are quite right about that. That is Joel’s signature song. It’s unlucky Jessica didn’t get the chance to present the song instead of Colton. But I won’t say that she wasn’t second best and Phil stargazed than her—Phil’s like doing the same style every performance. 🙂
I cant agree with u more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PHILLIP AND COLTON FOR THE WIN!
sorry but their are at least 2 who could beat her,she’s not a complete package like colton/phillips and she lack stage prowess/presence
The only way Heejun stays in it is if Howard Stern starts a “vote for Heejun” campaign!
I love Phil Phillips music- please wear another color besides gray…..Green is good!!! We want to see the music coming from you, not just hear it! Color will let us see your emotion in the music and allow us to feel what your feeling while singing the song!!!
How many got standing Ovations?
Elise and Jessica
noooo! jessica got a standing O again? not fair!!!!!
heejun knows his not gonna win….but his there for the fun…and his enjoying every minute of it…plus the summer tour,,,,how can he complain……
If Elise Testone goes home tomorrow… I just don’t know if I’ll enjoy AI again 😐 Heejun deserves to be in the BOT 3 honestly…
i agree,elise has kicked butt 2 weeks in a row,i had her with a top 3 performance last night behind colton and phillips with brackensill last
Jessica Jessica and Jessica , the gifted vocal cord, yes you are the ONE..a dream! an IDOL!
I thought the judges were unfairly critical of Hollie. I thought she did a great job. The best, though, was Philip…LOVE him!
Last week Randy, as all the judges, was critical of Jessica and now this week he says she is consistent and always has a moment…hmm…both can’t be true. I didn’t see a “moment” tonight, and certainly didn’t see one last week.
You never will because you have already made up your mind to like one contestant and dislike another. It is as simple as that.
i think judges were even too kind for hollie tonight. it wasn’t good! the audience agreed to that. they didn’t even booo the judges when criticizing hollie on her pitchy squeeky performance.
I agree with you. I think they were a little too harsh on Hollie, but I think it’s because they know her potential. I only heard one pitchy part last night, but I like Hollie’s tone so much that I may not even notice it. I think that Jessica’s voice is much more trained. She has so much control and can do so much with it. That’s truly a gift. Still- with some lessons, I think Hollie could perform just as well.
This year has some powerful yet beautiful singers but i have my top5 i no the judges have some tough decision to make
Please have the singers take a long look in a mirror ! Also, I would like some upbest easy-rock songs.Phillip took the change to sing and play his guitar,but not another ballad. If Jessica would have sung a more upbet tempo song, she would have received my vote. Tell you how old I am by this story.. In the early 70s, I went to college at ‘The College of New Jersey.’ There was a snow storm, and he showed up at the small auditorium at TSC or Trenton State College. He does have a lot of upbeat songs that the Idols could have selected.
my top 5: Philip, Colton, Elise,Erica and the best among the rest is Jessica!!!
marry him so that you will get lifetime goosies even when sleeping…
look who’s talking…what do you know about whole package??? your opinion is just one compare to many who likes jessica..so shut up your tasteless mouth and just praise your idol here…
very well said…ruut should think as his/her words bounces back to him/her
just saw hollie’s video. was it the worst performance tonight? hahaha
You just saw hollie’s video, yet you have posted critical comments of it earlier. Obviously you have it in for Hollie. That was not even close to the worst performance. I thought it was one of the best.
holly has a much better voice then jessica does,its pure,no gimmicks like growls or over use of vibrato,i wanna see holly and jessica just sing a song straight without all the gimmicks
Jessica exellent tonigth again, keep it up we love you and support you co’z we’re proud of you….
OMG…Beyonce’s vibrato, Jennifer Hudson’s powerful vocal and Mariah’s whistle all trapped in one small body. Such a very moving moment…made me shed some tears…u definitely put yourself in that song girl. Great job JESSICA. God bless you.
Wooohooo! This show is starting to get on fire! Though, I would love to get rid of some of those Tommy designs presented on the performance night! 🙂
I wish the best for Jessica Sanchez, she is really impressive!!!!!!!! second is for Philip Philips he is a good singer too…….. I love u American Idol!!!!!!!!
I wish the best for Jessica Sanchez, she is the most amazing singer in this contest!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and second for Philip Philips he is good too same as Hollie.
jessica nailed that song once again! the swagger knot is back!
I love American idol ! Heejun I liked his preformed se a lot. I think he is going to win . Heejun you are #1.
Joshua, Joshua, and Joshua.
And maybe Jessica.
The rest can go bye bye.
Jessica!!!, you did it again, incredible vocal.
she constantly over sings and her vibrato is starting to bug the hell outta me and why does she constantly cover her mouth/face ???
I love Phillip Phillips – he is amazing!!!
UGH! I’m so tired of Jessica always being first! SHES NOT THAT GREAT! Phillip and Colton are the best, everyone knows that – but not everyone wants to believe that. VOTE FOR COLTON AND PHILLIP (because i cant…)
Colton and Phillip are the best. Not only are they both AMAZING, AMAZING singers, they are also INCREDIBLE musicians! They are the only ones that play and sing in the top 10!!!!!! if people can see true artist, they are seeing Colton and Phillip – not Jessica or Elise or anyone else. VOTE FOR COLTON AND PHILLIP!!!!!
i agree,colton and phillip are ready to go have concerts right now,they have stage presence,they dominate the stage and they can play and sing the heck outta of the songs now,the rest all have holes in their game still,jessica/cavanaugh have great voices but lack star power and stage presence
Jessica Sanchez, doesn’t have pray in hell wining this show, sooner or later, i bet sooner going to have to use that save, and that when she will be out.
I think Heejun is fun and this is what we need in entertainment….. if all else fails maybe he should be a comedian.
Jessica, Phillip, and Colton were the best. I’d say Colton won the night.
Joshua and Elise were very solid. I love both their voices.
Erika, Skylar, Hollie were competent but nothing special. All have had good moments but none of them really impress me. Very middle of the pack.
Erika’s makeover was a good move.
Skylar needs to stop singing angry.
DeAndre was sub par.
Heejun was a mess but so entertaining.
I’d say DeAndre should go home based on last night.
Way to go Jessica! What a great performer!!! I love your imperfection. You show that you have a feeling when you say if you are or aren’t comfortable with your song choice. And the most amazing about that, you sing it with grace, versatility and pride. It shows that you are not a Robot. You are a total packaged performer.
There’s no reason for us not to love you. 🙂
ugh, i have a reason…
Well, I will not question your reason…. It doesn’t matter anyway. So just mind your own hating.
Bottom three for tonight: Heejun, Deandre, Colton. Philip is the only guy that’s a real talent. Think he will be around until the last GIRL wins. Ladies much better than the guys this time.
Erika should not have gone home. Something is wrong with this voting process. I am not going to watch anymore!
Something is wrong with the voting process????? Something is wrong with America!
Heejun is a big joke and does not deserve to be there! He is taking somebody’s place and it is totally wrong!
I really want Jessica to leave.. She’a already popular enough, it’s not really fair for everyone else. :/
why is it unfair? I <3 Jessica.
why should she leave? there’s no way for her to leave the show! why should a deserving winner leave the competition? she’s in it to win it!
Wohoooo! Jessica is safe… Love you Jessica, we’re all rooting your performance every week. NO worries, we’re here to support you all throughout!
Fantastic Phillip Phillips!!
I guess my comment was removed cause it was negative. Once again I think it was a tough night for songs by Billy Joel.The worst for me was to see Diddy as a mentor. That was hilarious.
Tonight’s vote was total BS. No way that Erika should have gone and Heejun, Deandre and Colton still there. Not one of them is better, as good as Erika. So who are the judges waiting on the “save” for?? Should have used it tonight for Erika. Think I’m pretty much done with AI. Heejun had already said, “His Dad has twenty cell phones and knows how to fix the voting”.
Phil does not suck. He has my attention and excitment from the minute he opens his mouth. I would definately march to his drum!
Jessica is the best singer here. Poll results can’t be wrong.
jessica is whitney and beyonce all in one
Why do we all not see how the telephone poles went for the contestants if the polls are anything to go by then EVP should not have gone last week and she has every right to bitch about why she did go.
If the telephone polls are not posted then it must be political and a fix. If heejun gives another comic piss take and he doesn’t go this week then it is a fix and political.
