  1. Leaving a post for the skins free tickets for the finale…..YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

  2. I hate to see Casey go – he is so talented in so many areas. I will miss his duets with Haley. They have a chemistry and perfrom really well together.

    • Also leaving a post for free tickets…Whoo Hoo~!!! @ Jeanne…yes, I was sorry to see Casey go as well. Although not my favorite to win he did definitely provide entertainment (in a good way). I loved his "classy" exit. Kudo's to him. 🙂

      • I have to agree, Casey's exit was done with a lot of class. He really is a great entertainer…..or I should say showman…..He can really work a stage….I loved when he did jazz….with his bass…..It was great….I think he will do fine….

        Leaving a post for free tickets…..

  3. I can't believe that they are not stopping in Vegas on their Summer Tour again…..This is the first year since Carrie U. won that I really wanted to go to the tour….besides Season 8…….Now I'll have to wait for James to come here in Concert……

    • @ Phyllis G. …what a bummer. They are stopping in three placers here in PA…all close enough to drive to and from in a day…Whoo Hoo~!!! You will just have to come3 and visit the North East… James to win. 🙂

      • Sorry for all the typo's…can't type worth a flip~!!! Any way…James to win. 🙂

  4. Leaving post for skins and stuff!!
    And yea I was very sad about Casey leaving he was my all time favorite! My fav songs he sang were harder to breathe and your song

  5. I dont think Casey shouldve been voted off last night. I've been a Casey fan since the begining. I surely hope that his career keeps going (I might be the first in line to buy a cd). The others on the show sure do have a lot of talent tho. Good luck all…

  6. Not following Matt's topic but I need to get something off my chest. So the popular word is James is Metal. Okay I'll buy that but let's just review what he has performed:

    Metal: Heavy Metal

    Hard Rock: Judas Priest

    Soft Rock: Maybe I'm Amazed

    Soul: Living In The City

    Pop: I'll Be There For You

    Rock Ballad: While My Guitar Gently Weeps

    Country Rock: Saturday Nights Alright

    Contemporary: Uprising

    A Cappela exposure: Will You Still Love Me Tomrrow.

    So, have I missed something a lot of James haters articulated? I feel this boy has given us a lot of variety and heavy metal is low on his list of performances.

    Regarding screaming….. let's not confuse brilliant high notes that most of us can't hit with hurtful screaming. He has made a few mistakes but relative to what he has entertained us with – his mistakes are meaningless.

    Hope some of you agree with me.

    • You stated your comments very concise and I agree completely. Let's face it, ever one of the top contestants has a strength of some kind or another, but only a few of them stretch into this wide range of song styles. James has done it week after week while presenting us with a stage show that could be straight out of a concert. Go back through internet pictures from the last several weeks when James is performing and look at the people in the audience. They're absolutely enjoying themselves.

    • I can't tell you the number of times I have played back James Durbin singing "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow" by Carole King. His version was awesome! OK.. I am in my 50'S and that song is timeless… Applies to first lst kiss, 1st base,2nd base 3rd base and home run!

      He gave it soul. It's timeless.

      • james is the winner and just because of 1 song he still is the best of all i give james a A plus go james

    • Haley has a sweaky voice and its not a good voice she hasent got a chance

  7. omg!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why did they put that jacob lusk pic of him doing his cry baby move??????????? whoops people i can't hold it i really can't any longer: HAHAHAJHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!

  8. Signed up. 🙂 my husband and I are addicted! Go Haley! He says go Scotty! Lol

  9. I Love James & Haley & chance to win tickets to see it with my 5 year old daughter would be priceless 🙂

  10. JAMES I cray when you sing you are so specil 🙂

    The world is your!!

    Silla from Iceland 🙂

  11. Lauren and James are awesome! I hope they are the top 2 with Haley finishing 3rd 🙂

    • Oh, and I would love 2 tickets to the finale…I would take my 17 year old with me! 🙂

  12. Signed up for newsletter, following on Twitter, and Liked on Facebook! : )

  13. James Durbin is my Idol…He is perfect in every way imaginable…I come home every day from work and watch all his performances…He's utterly amazing with a voice that gives me goose bumps every time I hear him sing…If he goes home I think I will probably cry for a week…I'm predicting James and Lauren in the Finale…Would be awesome to watch him and Steven Tyler perform together…Please enter me in the drawing for free tickets to the Finale…I would be a dream come true…Thank You…

  14. Hate to bust all you all's bubble, that have left out Haley in your choice, because it is time for a female to win it all. The tweenies are keeping both Scotty and James in the mix. Haley has it all over them. She is peaking at the right time. I would love to hear her sing Christin Aguilera;s "I'm A Good Girl" or even "Candy Man". I think she would blow everybodys' socks off. Anyway Haley, You Go Girl. Pulling for you all the way and then some.

  15. james is alsome singer his performance are always amazing i am voting for good luck.

  16. Go Scotty Your the best I can’t wait for your first album to come out I’ll be the first one in line to get it.

  17. Let James and Haley duke it out. Haley not only has a fantastic voice but a body to go along with it. A NICE package! Come on guys, if you are like me you thinking about her while you punch out her number. Go Girl!

  18. Can’t wait for the finale, yet I don’t want this season to end. Thanks!

  19. James is the bestin my opinion and i want to vote for him love his voice and everything what he sings

  20. Wow! Was it just me or was J.Lo and Randy on that time of the month!? What’s with the whole Haley hater attack?!?! Never in my time of watching AI have I seen suck disgust. She didn’t deserve it. So of course that adds fuel to the voting fire. Here’s my .02 on yesterday’s performance. James was good but nothing new came to the table. I know he can perform well but I think that I would like to see something new that will make me say wow. It was actually nice to see Scotty do something new yesterday and even though it didn’t give me the wow factor I still enjoyed seeing him jump out of the box (even though it will probably be brief). I’m convinced no matter what happens to Scotty he will go very far with his country singer career. I can also see him doing movies but that maybe thinking too far ahead. Lauren did well and I can see her trying to push her way up the voting ladder. I love Lauren, I love her voice but I can still see some hesitation and a little bit of lacking confidence. She may not be ready to be an idol just yet but I could be wrong. So by this time you know that Haley is my fav. I saw nothing wrong with her performance. Instead I listened and said wow a few times and then yelled at the judges. I’m glad that Steven Tyler stood up for her “that was beautiful”. I know not all of you agree but my prediction is the final two will be Scotty and Haley. I can’t wait to see today’s show.

  21. Love some Scotty! Would love to surprise my 3 year old and have tickets to the finale. Pulling for Scotty from eastern NC

  22. Go Scotty You are the best. I can’t wait to buy your first album. I’m all country and love your voice.

  23. I think Haley is going to go tonight. I didnt’ think she did that bad last night but did not like her attitude after being critiqued by the judges.
    I would love to win tickets to the finale! I watch it every week and would love to see these contestants in person!
