American Idol Top 12 Performance Show Mostly Disappoints Judges

March 13, 2007 09:21 PM by Joe Reality

Jordinsparks_ai6Diana Ross mentored the top twelve American Idol 6 finalists, but it
turned out that there wasn’t much magic should could work.  Brandon
Rogers performed “Can’t Hurry Love.”  Unfortunately, Brandon forgot the
words during his performance.  Randy Jackson said “Dog, it’s got to be
a lot better than that for me.”  Paula Abdul said “You know Brandon, we
don’t need to tell you what you did wrong.  There are many things that
you do right.”  Simon Cowell said “That was a complete letdown
actually, Brandon.”

Before Melinda Doolittle performed, Ryan Seacrest and Simon Cowell had an interesting exchange.  After Melinda said the hardest part of the competition was the dresses and high heels, Ryan Seacrest asked Simon Cowell if he had any advice on the high heels.  Cowell retorted “You should know Ryan,” which led Seacrest to say “Stay out of my closet.”  Cowell then said “Come out.”  Seacrest got the final word by saying “This is about the top twelve, not your wishes.”  Melinda Doolittle performed “Home.”  Randy Jackson said “For that performance I give the girls one, the boys zero.”  Paula Abdul said “I’m just so excited for you.”  Simon Cowell said “You made a very boring song fantastic.  You know who you remind me of, a young Gladys Knight.” 

Chris Sligh performed “Endless Love.”  Randy Jackson said “You got a good voice, but that was a mess for me.”  Paula Abdul said “That song is so recognizable and it’s such a beautiful love song, and sometimes I worry that you’re trying ultra hard to be ultra hip and cool, and sometimes you can just let the melody play, listen to the lyrics, sing the song, because you have a really nice voice.”  Simon Cowell said “I think you turned a beautiful song into a complete and utter drone.”   

Gina Glocksen performed “Love Child.”  Randy Jackson said “It wasn’t my favorite performance from you.”  Paula Abdul said “I feel that you’re much better than how you did tonight.”  Simon Cowell said “It wasn’t terrible, it wasn’t fantastic.”

Sanjaya Malakar performed “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.”  Randy Jackson said “Dude, it wasn’t very good.”  Paula Abdul said “You’ve got to explode with your vocals now.  You’ve got to really jump out, reckless abandon and go.”  Simon Cowell said “When you here a wail in Beverly Hills, that is where Diana Ross is watching the show.” 

Haley Scarnato performed “Missing You.”  Randy Jackson said “You gave it a valiant effort, I mean, it’s just forgetting the words and stuff.”  Paula Abdul said “Forgetting the words is never a great thing to do.”  Simon Cowell said “I didn’t think it was that bad.  To give you credit Haley, I think we will remember you now.  I think you had real presence up there.”   

Phil Stacey performed “I’m Going To Make You Love Me.”  Randy Jackson said “The vocals were hot.”  Paula Abdul said “You have strong vocals, you really do.”  Simon Cowell said “It wasn’t outstanding, It wasn’t awful, I think it was somewhere in the middle.” 

Lakisha Jones performed “God Bless The Child.”  Randy Jackson said “Unbelievable vocal from you.”  Paula Abdul said “You’re a beautiful performer, you’re a beautiful girl, and yep, your heart comes through when you sing.”  Simon Cowell said “The quality difference between you and Melinda compared to the other singers we’ve heard so far, you two are in a different league.”

Blake Lewis performed “You Keep Me Hanging On.”  Randy Jackson said “You actually sing better than that.”  Paula Abdul said “I think that you could have a hit with that again.”  Simon Cowell said “I didn’t get that.  I didn’t get it at all.” 

Stephanie Edwards performed “Love Hangover.”  Randy Jackson said “It was a good vocal, I don’t think it was your best vocal.”  Paula Abdul said “You know strive for better.”  Simon Cowell said “Basically what you sang was an intro, and it didn’t close particularly well.” 

Chris Richardson performed “The Boss.”  Randy Jackson said “It was interesting for me, it was half and half, half good, half bad.”  Paula Abdul said “You did a great job.”  Simon Cowell said “I thought it was dreadful.” 

Jordin Sparks performed “If We Hold On Together.”  Randy Jackson said “Tonight with that, you just made it a three girl race.”  Paula Abdul said “You drew me in right away.”  Simon Cowell said “I thought it was a very, very good vocal.” 

So who will be going home next?  Based on tonight’s performances, Idol should call Melinda Doolittle, Lakisha Jones, and Jordin Sparks to center stage and tell everybody else they’re recasting the show and they are all going home.  Actually, we would probably keep Blake Lewis, Chris Sligh, and Chris Richardson as well, because they have had some good past performances.  Since it’s unlikely that Idol will actually recast the show, we predict that Brandon Rogers will be going home.  He had the dreaded opening spot and forgot his words.

    good i can start this board off right. lakisha and blake rocked it tonight, as usual. sanjaya is hideous. i believe while melinda may be talented, i do not like her at all…something about her just irks me. phil stacey is another favorite of mine and i think he was excellent tonight as well. haley looked hot and besides forgetting her words was great (i agreed with simon). brandon was not great to say the least. stephanie was fine in my book, i guess since i dont know the original…i didnt think she was that bad. chris was alright too, his voice is very unique, sometimes maybe too unique? jordin was alright too…sligh was not that great tonight. when it comes to sanjaya i am speechless…he slaughtered a nonslaughterable song. and the curls?

    SANJAYA LOOKED SO HOT TONIGHT!!
    HE COULD HAVE SANG ANYTHING AND I WOULD HAVE STILL LOVED HIM.
    THE BOY IS HERE TO STAY.

    Idol should call Melinda Doolittle, Lakisha Jones, and Jordin Sparks to center stage and tell everybody else they’re recasting the show and they are all going home.

    that was very funny…. ;)

    well as usual Sanjaya shined and very much is a true nice soul on American Idol and the show just wouldn’t be unique without him, Chris Sligh, Melinda Doolittle, Blake Lewis, and Phil Stacey. u know if i’ve gotta listen to another pitchy, sloppy joe, creepy horror show called LaKisha Jones i will scream. it’s a shame the show even wastes 10 minutes w/ her on it. but 4 real Sanjaya kicks ass and is AWESOME!!! but dude a little louder next week and have your hair like it is most of the time and don’t always go changing it cuz ur hair reminds me of mine when it’s a little curly but not weird like. VOTE 4 SANJAYA MALAKAR!!!

    I think Brandon, Sanjaya and Stephanie should be in the Bottom 3 because Brandon still didn’t get his vocals right, Sanjaya is still worse for a few weeks and Stephanie must need to listen to the judges on what they said to her tonight. I think Sanjaya should go home tomorrow because he still sucks.

  7. Alex Says:
    March 13th, 2007 at 10:09 pm

    Sanjaya malakar is already 4th in dial idol by 10pm ET. That says something. He was always 4th or above vote getter. Judges and AI making him look like bottom 2 every week. They made a mistake of selecting him to top 24 and now they try everything to get rid of him. I believe judges genuinely dislike his singing sound.

    He also looks creepy and weird.

    As i said earlier , Sanjaya will be top 5 unless AI decide to kick him out by their own simulated rule.

    I did n’t liested to AI today because i do not think any one of top 12 is good to be american idol. Melinda is good but she behaved odd as though she lacks confident to be super star. Lakisha might win with her big voice even though she is another church screamer like mandisa.

    Jordin has personality and all she need is one Great performance away from challnging top spot.

    Sanjaya may be grow up and get a stronger louder voice in future but atpresent he sounds like another weird creepy Michael jackson without rhythm.

    Chris Sligh- this is what Shirley Temple would look like if she was exposed to gamma rays. This bloated pig has go to GO!!
    Sligh, it’s over for you! Your fake Christian jig is up. If Jesus was as fat as you, he never would have been able to walk to the next town! The only thing strong enough to carry him to Jerusulem would have been a dinosaur. You don’t fool me with your stupid jokes. you’re not funny, you can’t sing, and you STINK!! Pack your bags and get the hell out of here! YOU’RE FINISHED!! DONE!! Endless love? Try endless MISERY!! A disaster! 0/10

    Phil Stacey= how the hell is this no-talent garbage in the TOP 12? The only explanation I an think of is because they keep showing his fat wife in the show and people feel sorry for him. This guy is so ugly- he has the face of some hideous deep-sea creature on the bottom of the ocean that can only be seen by riding in that thing they found the Titanic with. 0/10

    Gina- The red streaks this anti-Christ is putting in her hair- the sign of the devil- and she’s making her obese deformed-looking retarded boyfriend and her trashy parents put them in, too. She has yet to sing one note in tune! I think she might even be a man! No female has a body like that unless they are 10 minutes away from over-dosing on male hormones! Go to a softball field, stay the hell off the American Idol stage. Notice it’s the devil girl who sings the morally shameless song of the night! 0/10

    Sanjaya- what kind of name is that? We’re in a “war on terror,” people! We don’t need to be spotlighting some guy whose name sounds like some terrorist. After our troops bomb the hell out of the middle east, then we should let these kind of people participate- this is a Christian show, the last thing we should be doing is giving the people and our children the idea these foreigners should be tolerated here until our war is over. This war would already be over if I was in charge. We have stockpiles of nuclear warheads- why aren’t we using them? That would be the first question I would ask if I was elected. 0/10

    Stephanie- she reminds me of that loser LaToya London whose album bombed and who has a been an utter and complete failure after the show. Even “Floptasia” has been a bigger success and that’s not saying much considering it amounts to around “zero.” But I guess LaToya doesn’t have a story of being knocked up, thieving, on welfare and too stupid to read to sell to Lifetime so they can make it into the worst movie ever made. The Color Purple, oh please! My face turns purple every time I have to see that low-life gutter-ghetto worthless donkey-faced fish-lipped fatass on TV. Can someone please slap a muzzle on that yapping dog? Stephanie doesn’t have the talent of “Floptasia” or LaToya London, which is good because they don’t have any, but it’s still not good enough for this show and being able to follow in the footsteps of world-wide star-gone-Nova Carrie Underwood or the enormous talent of the future legend Kellie Pickler This made my head so much I felt l like I had a brain tumor. 0/10

    Jordon- this girl is only seventeen. As a retired school teacher, she reminds me of many of my students I used to teach. So I have to give her a few points for just that. The rest of the points I give her are for her talent alone. 2/10

    Blake- after finding out he has many tattoos, I can no longer support him. As everyone knows, only trash have tattoos. if you remember, that no-talent flop and failure Bo Lice had tattoo’s and he had once been arrested for cocaine so it makes me wonder if they have done a very thorough background check to make sure Blake hasn’t done the same- 99 percent of people with tattoos have criminal records, it’s a fact. If this trash is exposed later for having been arrested, I will be furious at this show and will start a boycott. GET BACK TO MORALITY, AMERICA! These contestants are supposed to be role models for our children and another slip-up like letting Scott Savol, Bo Lice, Taylor Ick or that disgusting Trenyce compete will send me into a rage. I will not sit still and let this happen again. Protect the children- that’s what I am about, so Blake needs to GO! 0/10

    LaKisha- Lakisha last week said she was scared of animals. Can you imagine how frightened THEY must be when they see her fat ass coming??!? They probably head for the hills! How will they get her to the Kodak theatre if she is in the final?? Theyll need the same vehicle they used to bring King Kong to the circus! And I’m hearing alot about a kid but not a hell of a lot about a HUSBAND! We don’t need another “Floptasia” in this contest. Instead of torturing us with your awful screeching, Jones, you should be out looking for a father for that kid! I don’t want to see your giant marshmallow face on this show again! You’re NO ROLE MODEL!! God Bless the Child? I wish God would bless us and boot your no-talent self out of here! 0/10

    Haley- If only I could forget this horrid girl as easy as she forgets her words. If she has any self-respect or dignity, she would have dismissed herself from the show at that very moment. HORRIBLE!!! 0.000005/10

    Brandon- GET HIM OFF THE STAGE!!!!!!!!!! 0/10

    Chris Richardson- What a shining star! Incredible! The rest of these no-talent kankersores should take a lesson from this amazing vocalist. 9/10

    Melinda- PERFECTION. I admire her so greatly. How she must have suffered the first week not saying anything while they praised that cow LaKisha Jones! It was a tragedy! The audience though has finally wised up (I knew it the first week with that pathetic version of Jennifer Hudson’s song) that LaKisha is an embarrassment and a complete joke! That Melinda even has to share a stage with her makes steam come out of my ears! 10/10

    March 13th, 2007 at 10:25 pm

    Melinda is far and away the best singer and certainly the most polished performer . . . but I have to agree that the “you really liked it?” looks are getting old. I mean, c’mon, the girl KNOWS she’s got it going on! There’s no way she couldn’t. You rock, Melinda!

  10. Sholae Says:
    March 13th, 2007 at 10:26 pm

    Melinda and Lakisha great as usual..

    Chris Sligh murdered the song endless love, it was sickening, Brandon forgot his words and laughed it off, other singers were horrible. Sanjaya maybe boring in his performance, but he was definitely not the worst tonight…GIVE HIM THAT MUCH CREDIT..good singers that sung tonight sounded horrendous..Sanjaya should stay on this week, he needs to just sing louder and try to project his voice so he does not come off the way he does and put a bit more pep in his step and he should be fine.

  11. Flower Says:

    I might also add that it is terrifying that anyone let you teach their children. “God Bless”

    “When you here a whale in Beverly Hills, that is where Diana Ross is watching the show.”

    This should read: “When you hear a wail in Beverly Hills…”

    Please people, if you’re going to report on the show, try to get it right.

    That fine ass woman Sanjaya is great. What Sanjaya is a dude? Oh nevermind. Melinda deserves to win. Blake needs to win. Lakisha will win.

  17. American Idol Says:
    March 13th, 2007 at 11:34 pm

    I thought Sanjaya did well. Then the judges came out with their pre-written rehearsed lines and butchered the kid on stage. At one point, the crowd even boo’d Simon because he was so harsh on a kid who did not deserve it. Other singers forget their lines, sing off pitch – Sanajaya did none of that – and the judges forgive them. This show is ridiculously scripted and America is waking up to see this. Sanjaya will move on, win AI, and become the biggest selling artist of all time. Move over MJ. Unless, of course, Fox rigs the vote.

    Dorothy, what is up with all the nasty insults and mean-spirited comments? Really, was that necessary? I can almost see your teeth clenched as you typed about all the contestants. My guess is that if this contest causes you so much anxiety, simply don’t watch. I don’t think you have a right to criticize these people so severely, after all, no one’s perfect. I would like you to post a picture of yourself so we can jump on all your faults. You must have had a bad day, and take out your misery on everyone else. I just think it is inappropriate to tear people apart like that. Could you stand on that stage and sing in front of millions of people? Gosh, to be so mean….you need to remember all these people are not on that stage to please YOU, you mean nothing to them, so you should take the hint and switch the channel to the weather. Save us all the repercusions of your misery. That was just totally uncalled for. You were a teacher? How fairly and by what standards did you judge your students? Yikes!

    For me the Bottom three should be Brandon Rogers, Sanyaya & Chris R. With Sanyaya going home. I don’t think that he will be the one going home. I think it’s going to be Brandon Rogers. This guy is suppose to be a backup singer. I don’t get it. He has not impressed me at all. I agree with the Judges.

    The top three for me are Jordin, Melinda & Lakisha. With everyone else falling in the middle. I think Jordin is just starting to shine. Tonight she reminded me of Katherine McPhee with the control of her voice and this girl is only 17.

    It does not make a difference if Melinda win or lose I believe Clive Davis will sign her the girl can sing.

    Lakisha, was better tonight than she has been in awhile. What control.

    I will give Phil and Gina a B+ I like Phil’s voice and he sounded better tonight than he has for sometime. Gina has to remember that she has a wonderful voice and she does not need to sing so very loud. I think Chris S has a very special voice too. I also agree with the judges here he’s trying to hard to fit in with what’s in.

    Dorothy,

    I think you have personal issues that you got to have yourself checked. How un-Christian of you to use the name of our Lord in vain. Being discriminating against our fellowmen is a sin. And besides, this is a singing competition, not a beauty contest.

    AI is for the Americans (whether black or whites), if ever Sanjaya make it this week he doesn’t have enough staying power. He’s an Indian with American citizenship. I don’t think Americans would love to have an Indian as their American Idol. From Season 1 to 5 winners speak for itself. If you can’t stand Sanjaya singing, just turn the volume down.

    To the retired school teacher at top Dorothy. Your just plain nasty. We all have our likes and dislikes, but your comments were very nasty and uncalled for. A retired school teacher, thank God. No one needs someone like you teaching any children. What a pathetic excuse for an educator. Judging people on their weight, a tattoos, and talking about women who are single with kids. That’s what’s wrong with the world. Because their not following some standard of yours that makes them less of a person. PLEASE. Why are you so dang angry. Can’t you make a critical comment without being so hurtful and nasty. I agree with you posting a picture of yourself. We all would like to see, “America’s Next Top Model.” Very easy to lash out at people via a keyboard.

    I have no interest in the guys this year. They suck. As for the ladies, on pure voice talent it has to be one of the black chicks this year as winner. There are four of them. Like Simon says, they are in a different league altogether.

    March 14th, 2007 at 9:40 am

    I should be the new idol judge. I was disappointed in the judges last night. Any other day, the judges want to see the singers do something different to the songs they sing; MAKE IT THEIR OWN! After five full seasons, the judges are getting dillusional. If they wanted to see EXCELLENCE, they should have put through 24 EXCELLENT singers, regardless of race, age, background or whatever. Then we would have 12 GREAT singers to choose from who can handle anything thrown at them. With that said, lets put this into perspective. Brandon was not horrible. He just picked a predictable song and cracked real bad and then lost the words. For Idol, thats automatic “bye bye”. However, Haley did the same thing, but not as obvious. Yes she has presence, but she came out kind of defeated. I think she is better. She may not have time to show America that. Melinda, Lakisha, and Jordin were GREAT! Blake and Chris Sligh…GREAT! They did exactly what a pop male should do to a Diana Ross song. Chris is like on point. I liked it a lot. He was on pitch. He was SINGING! That is what matters. Randy gets on my LAST nerve with his “arrangement expertise”. Blake was HOT! That performance was everything I expected and even didn’t expect. What a guy! Phil Stacy is awesome. The biggest voice of the guys. He has personality and a great power voice. His song choices have shown that. He would have won a couple seasons ago. Sanjaya was not as bad as it sounded. He was doing everything he possibly could with that song, and it wasn’t a trainwreck. It wasn’t great. He was better than Brandon and POOR Chris Richardson. Justinboy has a NASAL sound that our hypocritical judges would have tossed aside earlier any other day. He bothers me. Then we have Gina. Our rocker, I guess. She picked a song that was as close to her being able to shout\sing and she was ok. Not great, but ok. Can’t leave out Stephanie. SO STINKIN WHAT if she didn’t get to the upbeat part of the song. How many people even know that was a disco song? Only the aged. She was on point and sounded wonderful. She looked the part. She only has 90 seconds to sing and all the finalists have to squeeze songs that are much longer and complex into a nutshell. Paula tried to make a point about that’s why there is arrangements…YEAH, for A WHOLE TRACK. In reality, the Idols sing snippets of songs and are judged on that. Six seasons in, no changes will be made to that. The safe kids are Melinda, Lakisha, Jordin, Chris Sligh, Blake, and Phil. Brandon, Haley, and Stephanie are in trouble…Steph for a different reason. She won’t go home, but Ignorant America is going to keep Chris R. Timberlake and Gina around. Sanjaya actually wasn’t “dead-last worthy” this week. I will be happy as a clam if he goes home. But, he won’t and he won’t be in the bottom 3. He will be the reason Stephanie ends up in the bottom 3. You watch. My “dream” bottom 3 would be Chris Richardson, Gina Glocksen, and Haley Scarnato. The first 6 that need to go home include those 3 plus Sanjaya, Brandon, and either Phil or Stephanie. The others are great. I would love it if Haley, Sanjaya, Chris R, Gina, and Brandon are gone first. THEN, we have a show.

    Okay, we all know that the Indian dude/dudest have to go but he won’t after all India & Pakistan is in. He already has his votes locked in. Clearly he has no talent and I am sure the Indian community will appreciate the first Indian to be American Idol. I will not be surprise if he does become the Idol. If he doesn’t go all the way, he can try out shampoo commericials!

    This whole American Idol is becoming too political. This show should be for people with no talent. And they should change this strategy about the “votes that counts”. This contest should be up to the judges not America.

    For everyone information, that name DOROTHY is actually DONNA LANE, the psycho tyrant who loves bashing idols. She did it every year and always on this site bashing idols and calling them names for no reason. She always claim to be a good Christian but her writing is so full of hatred and malicious remarks. That does not reflect a true Christian. This year she is back with her sarcastic reviews and had her name changed to Dorothy. But the truth is SHE IS STILL DONNA LANE. She seems to love doing this calling the idols names. Nevertheless, DOROTHY, there’s no need to hide yourself. Use back your real name DONNA LANE. And welcome back to this site because I like reading your reviews. You made me laugh because they’re so funny – coming from a pyscho like you. By the way, are you writing this from the hospital???

    Folks, I still see Jordin Sparks pulling a Diana DeGarmo and sneak into the Final 2 against Lakisha Jones-assuming Melinda suffers from the Chris Daughtry Effect: when people say they’re going to vote for Melinda, but turn around and vote like mad for Jordin and Lakisha.

    Since Jordin is from a red state like Arizona, she might need John McCain’s poll numbers to rise up and fast, I think Giuliani wants Lakisha to win because she’s from a blue state: Maryland.

    The South’s days are NUMBERED this year, cutting out Alabama and North Carolina proved just that.

    It’s also obvious that the Final Four will be all African-American girls.

    First of all, give it up, “Dorothy”. It is so freaking obvious that you are Donna Lane. Leave us alone!! Christian, yeah right!

    This week’s ranking:
    Worst)Sanjaya Malakar (but he won’t go home)
    11)Haley Scarnato (probably going home)
    10)Brandon Rogers
    9)Stephanie Edwards
    8)Chris Richardson
    7)Blake Lewis (what happened?)
    6)Gina Glocksen
    5)Chris Sligh
    4)Lakisha Jones
    3)Phil Stacey
    2)Jordin Sparks
    Best)Melinda Doolittle (4 weeks running!)

    Ok, Dorothy, you are a damn mess. Lol. You actually cracked me up with your boundless ignorance. Anyway…
    Top three last night without a doubt are: Melinda, Jordin, and Lakisha. Everyone else is worthy of being in the bottom three tonight. I mean this is the worst crop of talent on Idol I have ever seen in my life. I have never seen so many singers sucumb to the pressure and their nerves and come out stumbling over lyrics and FORGETTING them! Besides the top three I mentioned nobody else seems to possess that hunger to be a real singer. They are all pretenders. I can’t say any of the other nine contestants deserves to be there after last night. Just a complete mess. I won’t be surprised who goes home and based on last night, the competition won’t really get started until Melinda, Jordin, and Lakisha are the last three in the competition. It’s a shame we have to wait nine weeks for the real show to begin…

    This is my ranking least to greatest
    12) Haley Scarnato= What can I say? She stunk completely.
    11) Gina Glocksen= She did not wow me and it was not good at all.
    10) Brandon Rodgers= He was okay, but he won’t go home
    9) Jordin Sparks= I did not feel her last night, but I love her and I voted for her like crazy.
    8) Phil Stacey= He was okay, I like it
    7) Sanjaya Malakar= Okay the kid is trying. Also I thought there were people last night that were way horrible then he was.
    6) Blake Lewis= He did not wow me, but he is still good
    5) Stephanie Edwards= I liked her. Her vocals were awesome
    4) Chris Sligh= I think he is at this place because for me his performance was aweseom.
    3) Chris Richardson= He was totally amazing. Anyone that says he was horrible is totally wrong.
    2) Melinda Doolittle= What can I say, I love her and she gives me the chills.
    1) Lakisha Jones= Lakisha was so amazing last night and I love her.
    Well I think either Brandon, Haley, or Gina are going home. Right now for the winners for me are either, Lakisha or Melinda. We will have to see.

    I am Amazed that Sanjaya has stayed around. This is Proof that AI is Not a singing competition. Is it possible some geek somewhere is stufing the ballot box???
    The talent level this year seems only a shadow of the talent from the past 2 years. I really Want to like someone here, but can’t do it. I respect some of the girls for good voices, But American Idols??? I dont think so. Haley looked the part, but forgot the Freaking Words!!
    Jordin is a doll but there was no spirit nor soul in her performance last night.
    Blake did pretty good but I was hoping for more and better vocal range.
    Melinda and Lakisha did fine, Wish they looked better doing it.

    BOTTOM LINE with no crap in between. We all know deep down that Sanjaya is not idol material. He needs to go. Melinda is the most talented if the bunch. I don’t know if thats saying much, though. Other than Blake, who’s ok, I said only OK….none of the rest are worth wasting the type over. Please bring back Katherine McPhee. Now theres a peach!

  51. hollywood Says:
    March 14th, 2007 at 5:23 pm

    Well Brandon Rogers may be going home. He forgot the words who do that in the top 12? nevered seen that before. He has great vocals but not yet really shown it.If giving another chance he really needs to bring it. What can I say about Lakisha, Malinda, Jordin totally different league of their own. It’s was difficult to challenge Diana Ross songs I love her she gave each of the final 12 directions and advise on how to perform her songs and the ones that really took what she said and ran with it were the ones who really shined. I know there were nerves floating all around because I mean were talking about Diana Ross how many young people get that opportunity to work with her. By the way Simon rocks!!!!!

    Melinda is ugly! Ugly with a capital U! But I do think she can sing, I’ll tell you that. If you wanna be the next American Idol, you have to sing great and have a great appearance.
    Here’s my rates from worse to best:
    WORST. Haley s ( Mostly will go home)
    11. Chris s
    10. Stephanie E (Mostly will go Home)
    9. Brandon R
    8.Jordin S
    7.Chris R
    6. Blake L ( Mostly will go home)
    5. Melinda D
    4.Phil s
    3.Gina G
    2.Sanjaya M
    BEST. Lakisha J
    YEAH! YEAH! “You keep me hanging on” is a song curse?! OMG! OMG! OMG! Blake (Sorry to say) will most likely go home since that song is cursed. Leah sang it at Top 12, season three (out first), Vanessa sang that song Top 12, season two ( out first). BLAKE LEWIS IS IN DANGER! As for the song curses, When someone sang “Love will lead you back”, that girl would be eliminated:
    EXAMPLE:
    Carmen Rasmeusen sang it season 2,top 6 she wound up eliminated the next day.
    Mikalah Gordon sang it season 4, top 3, she wound up eliminated the next day.
    Katharine McPhee sang it last season, top 4. She wound up eliminated the next day.
    Then there’s Stevie Wonder’s “Lately”:
    RJ Helton sang it season one, was eventually eliminated.
    Melissa Mcghee sang it last season, she was eventually eliminated.
    Paris Bennett sang it last season and made it to the top 3.
    And if I’m right, I might know who might be eliminated tonight.

    Alex who gives you the right to ridicule people what are you doing with your life. It’s the blessing of the lord that you’re not in my reach. Just because Lakisha is a single parent does not mean that she’s a bad person I applaude her it’s not easy raising a child on your own but now days woman have to do what she have to do. It’s a blessing for her to manage with out a baby daddy and far as Fantasia she’s well her bank accounts speaks for her. Lakisha is a beautiful full figure woman besides full figure is in you did’nt know? Don’t hate -just congradulate.

  54. BEBE Says:
    March 14th, 2007 at 6:22 pm

    Pedophiles are voting for Sanjaya. If Dateline with Chris Hanson were on at the same time as idol he would get the boot. haha.

    Ok, Melinda is always good as is Lakisha but I find both of them strange for reasons I cannot put my finger on.

    Chris Sligh was HORRID. WTF was that mess? It sounded like a that Coldplay song “Clocks” mismashed with some late 90′s Grunge Rock.

    Blake Lewis was OK. His attempt at moderizing the song was much better than Chris’s but his vocals sounded weak. He should have sang the Kim Wilde version of the song.

    Chris R. was OK. Again vocals were weak but he had the charisma to skate by. LOSE the white jacket.

    Brandon is the most boring singer ever and he sounded terrible. GO HOME.

    Phil was shouting and his alien head bugs me. Put a tattoo on it or something.

    Jordan was good on a crappy song.

    Stephanie was imitating Beyonce again. One more time and you will get the boot if you haven’t already.

    Gina was decent. She could have tried to have a little fun up there though.

    Haley actually sounded good but all that going on and on about her forgetting the words may hurt her. Do not call attention to mistakes girl. Paula needs to shut up.

    Sanjaya should go home with Chris Sligh right behind him. EW.

    March 14th, 2007 at 6:35 pm

    Season 5 was by far the most talented lot ever. This season totally sucks for 2 reasons: They’re all UGLY and none of them have a distinctive style of singing. Whose voice jumps out at you? NO ONE. Who is cute enough to get excited about? NO ONE. Season 5 had sexy Katharine, Hot rocker Chris, Country hottie Bucky, Loveable Jazzmeister Elliott, Pretty boy Ace, Goofy Kellie and Power Belter Mandissa. Everyone in the top 10 last year was really talented and nice looking. I don’t know what possessed idol to cute people like Baylie but boy what a mistake they made.

    WARNING!!! IF YOU THINK SANJAYA SHOULD STILL BE ON AI, YOU ARE BASICALLY LIKE ONE OF THOSE TONE DEAF PEOPLE DURING THE TRYOUTS WHO THINK THEY CAN SING. YOU ARE IN DENIAL! HE HAS NOT HAD ONE GOOD PERFORMANCE YET. IF HE SINGS ANY SOFTER, HE WILL BE LIP-SYNCHING. HE SEEMS LIKE A NICE KID BUT HE SHOULD NOT STILL BE ON THE SHOW. GET REAL PEOPLE.

    Well, Kevin Covais from last season was nice and good-looking too. He was a cutie in the Top 12. But Blake Lewis & Chris Richardson are the hot males this season, Sanjaya looked like MJ last night, and teens were voting for him like crazy!

    March 14th, 2007 at 8:51 pm

    The votes are in…Phil, Sanjaya, and Brandon are the bottom 3. Man, Dialidol sucks this year! Chris S. and Stephanie were their predictions for bottom 2. Thank God it proved to be wrong (yeah, I’m a Chris S. fan. I don’t care what you say, BeBe and Doroth-sorry, I meant Donna Lane).
    Phil is sent back to the couches. Brandon, like A.J. and Sundance before him, is defeated by Sanjaya and the force that is Vote For the Worst.
    I don’t know who to feel more sorry for…Brandon, Sanjaya, or us- Brandon because he is out of the competition, Sanjaya because he has to deal with more Idol fan insults, or us because he have to hear Sanjaya sing again next week.

    Dorothy,

    For a retired school teacher you sure don’t know how to spell. A LOT is spelled like this “a lot” (not alot–which is how you spelled it).

    You suck. You aren’t Christian, you are the devil–like a lot of so-called Christians out there right now.

    Dorothy, Donna, whoever the hell you are you need to shut the *(^% up. It’s people like you who give Christian’s a bad name. Why don’t you go to church or read your bible instead of watching an “ungodly” show like Idol. Which isn’t not having an “Idol” in the 10 commandments anyway? Why don’t you go join the biggest jackass in the country GWB because I think you would make a great couple!

    I think Sanjaya should have went home when they were in the top 24. Sundance should have stayed. Sunjaya needs to go home. The only reason he is here is because people think he is cute and adorable. This is a singing competition not a good looks competition. He has been in the bottom 3 every week. He can’t sing at all. Hailey is a totally different story. she is more of a broadway singer than american idol material. Sabrina should not have went home last week.

    SANJAYA SHOULD HAVE BEEN ELIMINATED THE FIRST TIME WHEN IT WAS TOP 12 BOYS.

    i just don’t understand WHY people vote for him?

    hey guys, a little reminder, it’s a SINGING competition, really, not a gay competition.

I get where you’re coming from about Chris R., but as for Melinda, she needs to leave this contest before her big ol’ walnut of a head gets cracked. Her, Lakisha, Phil, and Sanjaya are the worst on the show!
