I missed the show, just forgot about it. I'll definately catch tomorrow's episode though.

Amanda, one of the best friends from NJ is gone. Baylee, the country farm girl who Simon loved in the original auditions, is gone. The girl with the nasty faces is gone. The Indian girl did not make it through either. They never even showed her singing. Her brother made it through, though. The show went very fast tonight.
Wednesday, they cut it down to 24.

I'm glad that skanky c-nt Amanda is gone. She did nothing during the auditions and then had the audacity to say "God looks after good people" (or something to that effect) when Baylee got cut. Go back to Jersey bitch.

Another one that got cut was Robyn Troup, who actually won the Grammy contest and got to sing with Justin Timberlake Sunday night. I thought she was pretty good.

Was Amanda the first one or second singer? The second one was the one who Simon said was better than the first, then when she politely protested he told her that in this business you kick your competition when they are down (something to that affect).

And I'm suprised to hear that Baylee Brown left, I thought she had the looks / personality to advance. I am not suprised to hear that the girl with funny faces is gone - she was cute and had a decent voice but the faces were just way too distracting.

I was a little surprised to see that Jory girl do so crappy and get cut, as well as the Amish looking dude.

That Amanda girl may have been a C word, but she didn't fuck the song up, while Baylie couldn't remember over half of it. She may have been cute, but she acted like a spoiled little shit when she got cut, while Amanda acted pretty maturely when she did.

Maturely? Sure, she walked off the stage gracefully when she told she wasn't going home. But her comments about God watching out for the good people was the most smug thing I've ever heard. Especially since her Jersey ass was too busy on a booty call instead of rehearsing. Karma is everything it seems.

Every season, the contestants are warned to learn their frikkin' words to their group songs, and those who don't learn them typically get the heave-ho. Bailey's young, and she got stuck with a pair of contestants who diminished her chances, then again, I thought her voice was okay, and was coasting on her looks up until the group song.

Sanjaya did look awfully sad for his sister, even though he made it through another round.

Sundance Head was overpowering his songs, and was lucky to make it through.

I hope the human beatbox doesn't make it the final 24, that schtick would get old quick.

Not quite sure there are many strong female contestants, but AI has been canny in who they've showed so far. Not too high on Gina, she's got more attitude than talent from what I've heard so far.

It was smug, but it also came on the heels of little blondie farm girl acting like a spoiled brat and basically talking shit right to her face. It was probably a kneejerk reaction to that.

About the flirting instead of rehearsing thing-who really gives a fuck? The bottom line is that she had her part of the song more or less down, and Baylie (sp?) was the one really struggling. There have been several instances in past years where people spent more time socializing than rehearsing, or went to bed when they should have stayed up and rehearsed, and sometimes they are fine. If you know your shit, what does it really matter?

Actually, they showed very little, if any, of his performances. He did well enough in the opening part, where they all basically did a repeat of their original audition songs, to get through to the group round. He got cut there, but I don't think they even showed his group performing.

I actually liked Gina. I don't recall them even showing her original audition earlier, so it seems a bit hard to judge her based on the 3-5 seconds they showed of her performing tonight. I didn't really consider her "attitude" to be attitude, either. She was pissed that the Perla chick kept butchering the song and didn't want her dragging her down with her. Another girl in their group was exactly the same way, and her feelings obviously had merit since the only one out of the group who got booted was Perla. Bye bye now, Shakira wanna-be!

I couldn't believe they cut the 16 year old blond farm girl. She wasn't that great to begin with, but I thought her looks would sail her through. Even Simon said that she was commercial.

The beat box group was excellent. As long as he doesn't try to beatbox on every song.

The first group of girls was funny. I always think it's hilarious when someone starts mistakenly celebrating when they're cut.

If you know your shit, what does it really matter?

Who gives a fuck!? It shows that she's a self centered little princess and not committed to sticking around and rehearsing with her team. Whether SHE remembered her words or not.

....and I want to add. Clearly the producers felt the same or they wouldn't have included the clip of her ditching her team to socialize. None of this would even be an issue with me had she been a little more humble when she made it through the next round. And as far as Baylee's reaction. Nine out of ten people that are cut cry. And half those have mini-breakdowns. So her response was nothing new. I've also seen Simon, Paula and Randy give contestants another shot when they've messed up. When they know they're a good performer. I don't think Baylee was the next American Idol. But she's pretty good.

I felt bad for Baylee (Bailey or whatever) for getting stuck with those two. Obviously, given their relationship, they were going to look out for each other and she was going to be the odd man (girl) out.

The worst part, besides the God comment, was when Baylee asked if they could practice her part and the biatch said something like "when we practice your part it F's me up". Baylee, being only 16 was completely overwhealmed trying to deal with those two. She should have left those two and memorized her part on her own. Screw the group, but make yourself look good.

Too bad for her.

Funny note, the woman seem to be 90% of the "Bickering" during group time over the years I have been watching AI. The last Male group to "Bicker" was the Twinn Black brothers that were knocked off the show after they were arested in Atlanta.

I'm glad they cut Baylee/Bailey. They explicitly stated to not forget the words. She botched worst than almost everyone else we saw. Why should she get to stay? How hard is it to memorize a few lines? ESPECIALLY when it's set to a melody? I understand it's high pressure and stuff, but she KNEW she had to remember them. Stay up all night if you have to.

I'm glad Simon stuck to his guns on that one.

So tonight is no new performances ... just the judges calling people into a room one-at-a-time telling them if they made it or not? If so, that's really lame. Why even bother cutting the group down from 54 to 40 (instead of just going directly to 24)? They really needed more time for the Hollywood round. It just seems like bad tv storytelling to set up so many stories and characters in the audition shows, only to cut some featured singers without any more airtime. Maybe they'll squeeze in some more performances in between the elevator riding and judgements tonight.

You have to remember that we haven't even seen at least half of the 40 that made the cut. I'm guessing/hoping that they'll highlight some of the people with clips of their performances while they walk to their interview with the judges.

The criticism always seems to be that some people from the final 24 were not on TV long enough for people to become familiar with them. I'm hoping that this is the year that the AI producers have finally listened to the criticism and done something about it.

I doubt it. There's quite a bit of talk on other boards about the show's "chosen ones"--one or two handpicked contestants that will get the bulk of early airtime to generate a fanbase prior to viewer voting. Of coure, it's all conjecture, and Elliot's strong run last season after appearing seemingly from nowhere sort of disproves this theory. But, it's pretty obvious that some contestants are being pimped early with backstories and extra camera time.

Paula Abdul Drunk? Never! Casual Drugs? Nope!

See, you were wrong, you were all wrong. Every one of you. For shame. American Idol's most, um, "unpredictable" judge, Paula Abdul, insists, "I've never been drunk" and "I have never done recreational drugs" in an interview with Us. Waving her 20-year career around as People's Exhibit A, she says, "Tell me [how] someone who is into partying or doing drugs could have done that." But... but... MC Skat Kat was so psychedelic!

"There have been 100 million lies about me," she adds. "[But] I'm squeaky clean." Or at the very least, squeaky.

Though I missed last night’s show, sounds like she didn’t want to practice with Baylee. One of my favorite memories from last year’s Hollywood shows was when one of the Brittnum twins tried to take control of his group, telling the other two that they had to practice all night. One of them smiled and shook his head “no”, saying that he was going to bed. The next morning the Brittnum twin was again practicing early while the guy who went to bed was now flirting with girls during breakfast, declining to practice with the group. That was our introduction to Elliot Yamin. Of course Brittnum and the third guy were cut and Elliot made it to the final 3 overall – and I still think he should have won it.

Lots of the guys are pretty entertaining.

The one flirty bitch who's name I'm not going to try to spell fucks up her song and gets through. I hope she's one of the first ousted. Spoiled bitch - hopefully viewers remember the type of people her and her friend are.

Tommy and Sundance were both better than a lot of the guys that got through.

Yeah, I heard from an interview with Simon that no one is looking to be friends this year and the competition is really amped up. Everyone knows whats at stake, there will be no love lost when someone leaves.

I was really hoping Sundance wouldn't go through. Every one of his Hollywood week auditions looked horrible. I don't see what the producers see in him. He doesn't seem to have looks, personality, or talent.

What happened to the guy who was on before that Simon said he didn't remember? Did he even make it to tonight's show?

So far, none of these people are really standing out to me, and I swear if they make Lakeesha into another Fantasia and bring up her single parenthood every week, I'll go postal on someone at American Idol, heh.

I believe that's Chris Sprigh. He's the one that said during his first audition that he wanted to make David Hasselhoff cry. :lol:

Close...it's Chris Sligh. I live in his hometown and cannot turn on a news broadcast without them mentioning him at least once.

That Hasselhoff line was great, along with the "I know you all are wondering why I called this meeting" line as he approached the chair last night. :lol:

I am wondering if Leslie Hunt's big tongue is going to get in the way of her singing, she looked really weird while singing, she's got a big bottom jaw thing going on as well.

Yeah.... after seeing the performances I think it's safe to say that Antonella got through on looks more than talent. That other girl blew her away plus she forgot the words (an AI no no!)
I agree, if the Judges say that you have to remember your words, then they have to hold the standard to everyone. But, it looks like they only apply it to those the producers want off the show.

For the lazy, here's the link to the final 24 contestants (http://www.americanidol.com/contestants/season6/).

Not much eye candy amongst the gals, though Nicole reminds me of Kristin Wiig (SNL). Gina annoys me, and I don't think she sound all that good. Jordin might be the favorite on the gals' side, but there are 4 gals that I don't have any opinion on (can't remember if I saw any singing footage of them yet. There's not one "blonde-blonde" in the gals group (a couple of brown/dirty blonde gals in the mix).

Chris is probably the odds-on favorite at this point, combo of funny and cuddlely sheepdog looks.

Nicholas has a decent voice, and Rudy has a lot of range. Sanjaya has more of the mid-range, smooth voice. Phil (the guy who skipped on his child's birth) actually made it to this point. Jared could surprise, though not sure about his personality.

Yeah, I heard from an interview with Simon that no one is looking to be friends this year and the competition is really amped up. Everyone knows whats at stake

what? the chance of winning and never being heard from again?

I usually have favorites by this time, but this year, not so much. Almost everyone good they showed us got cut, so we are stuck with... these folks. I am not feeling the love yet, but alas, maybe they will grow on me.

Eh, nothing terribly funny there. He's good when he has funny one liners. I forsee him going far just based on his personality alone.

Marissa got robbed by Alaina Alexander taking her spot. Alaina was simply painful to listen to as a singer.

I thought the redhead was HORRIBLE~ The girl cut along side of the New Jersey girl should have made it through instead. You gotta wonder how many talented people get sent home only to have us listen to the nerdy lispers and red headed 16 year old crooners from past seasons.

Any idea what happened to the colorfully outfitted New York opera singer (think thick NY accent and tough-as-nails attitide) and the really handsome black guy from NY who is the adopted son of a South American couple?

They were two of my faves from NY who made it to Hollywood but neither appeared during auditions.

Also, my gf and I must have turned to each other a dozen times last night asking "Who WAS that?" Wish we could have seen more of the 24 in the audition rounds. few of these unknowns have NO shot against the oft-mentioned likes of Sligh, Gina, etc.

The bandmates got 3 out of the 5 into the top 24. and I can see at least 2 of them in the top 12.

Yeah the black kid, that looked like he was 25. Paula really liked him.

They never showed him getting cut or anything.

She got bounced in the first round of the Hollywood auditions.

Some speculation on other boards that her past lingerie modeling might have had something to do with her ouster.

How about Lakeesha (sp?), the single mom with a 3-year old daughter who works in a bank.
What fucking dimension are you in? Fat ugly dime-a-dozen 'soul' warbelers never get past top 6

BTW, the selection of the top 24 kind of blows that retarded conspiracy theory from the last thread away, doesnt it?

I can't believe Marisa Rhodes didn't make it through. Beautiful girl, and a simply astounding voice. Has that powerhouse gravelly tone that I LOVE in a woman's voice. She was right to be bewildered. Even if Antonella wasn't cut, Alaina should have before Marisa.

Sundance was really horrible, and I have no clue why he made it through. Chris Sligh is the clear favorite at this point by a mile.

I too loved her voice. Same reason I liked Nikki in S1. I'm not just surprised that she didn't make it, but that Antonella made it instead of her.

This season is shaping up to be pretty shitty. Honestly, I don't know if the judges can be trusted to send the best ones through anymore. We should go back to the S1 voting where America votes three out of groups of 10 in. They tended to get it pretty right.
