The top 10 female contestants perform. Two more female performers will be eliminated on Thursday night.

Please keep any of the Dialidol.com or votefortheworst.com results with spoilers tags.

Will be interesting to see what state of mind Antonella is in tonight under the spotlight.

I just checked out the dialidol website.... no wonder they are so accurate... out of the top 12 last week 9 had the "predicted to be voted off" tag..... not too hard to have a near 100% accuracy rate if that is how they do it.

Gina did a pretty good job. She looked great in that red dress.

Alaina was not good. But, she is a bundle of cute. And seriously, her and Ryan would look great together.

LaKisha did pretty good. I think she will go a long way. It was nice to not see her BELTING it like I expected.

Simon: "It's kind of a dusky grey." when describing the color of his shirt. :lol:

and I agree with it being interesting how Antonella reacts tonight...I would wanna quit if I were her. :shrug:

Melinda Doolittle: amazing job. I was tearing up.

Antonella is singing Celine? Didn't they say something like she can't sing those big vocals? Uh oh...

My pick of the night is Melinda. She's incredible.

Antonella needs to go, followed by Leslie.

Gina: “Alone” - Still just an average voice to my ears, plus inviting comparisons to Anne Wilson and also Carrie Underwood without the pipes to back it up.

Alaina: “Not Ready To Make Nice” - the out of breath singer just keeps on, but not all that impressed.

Lakisha: “Midnight Train To Georgia” - sings far too effortlessly, she'll be sticking around.

Melinda: “My Funny Valentine” - good vocals, but you can't quite see her eyes when she sings, it looks weird.

Antonella: “Because You Loved Me” - I had to laugh when I realized she was doing a Celine song after being told last week's Aerosmith's song was too big for her. She hit one long notes, but very uneven performance.

Haley: “Queen Of The Night” - It was okay, but lacks charisma.

Jordin: “Reflection” - Not too bad at all, she's a natural, even at her young age.

Leslie: “Feeling Good” - singing in tongues is never a good idea (the scatting).

Stephanie: “Dangerously In Love” - Good use of the lilt in her voice through the song.

Sabrina: “All The Man That I Need” - She was pretty good tonight, despite what Simon thought. She did seem to run out of steam, though.

I think Leslie and Haley will be on the outs, though Alaina and Antonella are also vulnerable to being given the boot tomorrow night.

Can you think of a better reason? :) Watching now, Melinda Doolittle, although she creeps me out a bit, gave one of the best performance I have watched on AI. Now I want Antonella to stay just because she is such a car wreck. Also, I really like Jordin. She is my "sentimental" favorite to win it all.

Well, there seems to be a pretty clear Top 6 at this point. Lakisha, Melinda, Stephanie, Sabrina, Jordin, and Gina (by default) - in that order. There is a huge gap between those six and the rest; although I think they were particularly harsh with Haley tonight. She was actually very good IMO.

Alaina and Antonella SHOULD be gone. Alaina and Leslie probably will be gone. If Haley leaves it will be a shame because although she is certain not to win this thing, she deserved better from the judges tonight and should stay for another week.

Melinda is my favorite of this bunch and Lakisha is a close second. However, Sabrina would be the most marketable winner IMO.

Paula needs to sit her ass down. I am sick of seeing her stand up during the performances and trying to dance while in her drunken stupor.

What was going on with Paula's hair tonight?? She had one long strand in the center of her forehead just bobbing and weaving whenever she spoke. It was driving me nuts for a while, then my wife said, "Maybe she is auditioning for Something About Mary 2"! rotfl

I really like Haley and hope she sticks around for awhile. She gives me the same vibe as Katherine McPhee did when she is on stage.

Melinda was just as good this week as Lakisha was last week!

My vote to leave is Antonella and Leslie, with the other guy up in the air after Sanjaya. Hope it's not Nick, as he is from my town! :rock2:

I love Melinda, but she has no neck at all and it is absolutely distracting. The whole time she is singing I'm wondering what is holding her head up.

I think the remark made by Antonella about Simon being wrong about Jennifer Hudson was way off base. She is no Jennifer Hudson.

My top 6 is the same as everyone elses. Lakisha, Stephanie, Melinda, Sabrina, Jordin and Gina. I dont care when the rest go home, just as long as they go.

The men dont throw it down like these women do.

I don't see Leslie Hunt sticking around after that performance. It was just weird.

I gave Gina Glockson twenty-five votes as well as ten for Haley. Gina isn't going to stick around for much longer, but I would like to see her make it at least one more week. Nice range but the competition is just too strong.

And Antenella Barba - horrible performance but she'll stick around. Great looking and has tons of name and face recognition thanks to the pics of her (both real and fake) popping up.

Leslie was the clear zero on this show. It's down to Alaina and Hayley for who's next. I'd like to see Alaina stay as she reminds me of my major crush - SMG.

Heat, I agree that Gina probably won't make the top 12. Not that it bothers me, as I absolutely despise her as a person. Simon is totally right - she's not authentic.

I'm picking Alaina and Leslie to go home. I think Stephanie is a dark horse to win the whole thing - she's the best looking of the good singers.

I like Gina, but I agree with Simon. If you want to project a rocker-chick attitude and image, dress closer to the part.

EDIT: Checked dialidol CRAP! The two female singers I pick out liking are dangerously close to the bottom :( Please America ... keep the hot contestants who can sing around. Is that too much to ask for?

Antonella won't get the boot this week, sadly enough. Leslie is definitely toast, probably accompanied by Alaina. It will be close between her and Haley. Leslie was just dreadful, I thought, and she is just fucking weird, to boot. It is sad (and a little scary) that a guy (AJ) just sang that song better than her last night.

I am interested to see what happens between LaKisha, Melinda, Stephanie, and Sabrina in the coming weeks. They are all good, but I guarantee at least one of them will be going far before most people expect it. I can easily see a Latoya London repeat thing with either Sabrina or Stephanie.

I think singers who are slotted to sing earlier get a bit screwed over. AI apparently picks up around 5 million more viewers as the evening goes on. So for example, on Tuesday, Idols started out with 27.27 million viewers at 8pm, 31million at 8:30 and then 33 million at 9pm. Therefore, if you sing early, you have less potential people who have seen you sing and potentially vote for you. Last week, Rudy and Amy sang first and were booted. This week, it may be that Gina goes home according to dial idols.

All the white girls suck and I can't stop looking at the black hole between the front teeth of two of the black girls (Lakesha and Melinda? I forget).

This is the worst season yet.

Melinda did a good job but if you liked her performance, you'll love the better version she was copying. A few years ago, I heard Chaka Khan sing "My Funny Valentine" on a CD. She blows you out of the water. As soon as I heard the opening music, I knew it was that song and after I heard her phrasing, it was definitely Chaka Khan's version. Get Chaka's on Itunes if you can. I think Melinda scored so high for originality was because the judges hadn't heard Chaka Khan sing it.

Anatonella 'tanked' once again. The girl who did Whitney's 'Queen of the Night' didn't cut it either.

Oh, and I'm tired of the judges commenting how beautiful the girls are. When did this become "America's Top Model"? Let's get back to the singing.

simon made a good point about Sabrina she was screaming more than singing the song. I still like her though. As someone said previously she's not quite as good as Lakisha or Melinda vocally but propbably more marketable. She looks great

Sabrina reminds me of a mix between Road Rules Rachel and Gloria Estefan.

Big Quasimodo
03-01-07, 09:18 AM
Melinda is my favorita and My Funny Valentine is one of my favorite standards, but with that song, less is more. My expectations were high and I was not that impressed. Still better than most everyone, though.

Man Antonella is hot though. Wowowow.

2 out of these 4 (and they were all really bad imho).

Alaina, Antonella, Haley and Leslie. The first 2 are really cute and will take some votes so that leaves Haley and Leslie. No problem with that.

Quake1028
03-01-07, 10:57 AM
Damn, I didn't realize how hot Haley was before this week. She definitely belongs in my top 3 AI chicks (with Kelly C. and Katharine M.). Gina, Antonella and Alaina are all very easy on the eyes as well.

BTW, did the end of Melinda's song remind anyone else of Bernie Mac at the very end of Kings of Comedy?

DVD Josh
03-01-07, 11:11 AM
Either this week or next, Leslie, Alaina, Gina and Haley will be voted off.

As for the boys, Phil, the Chrises and Blake are the only ones that really deserve it. The rest are probably just fodder for the rest of the top 10.

And it's nice to see some love for Haley. I think she's definitely a hometown hottie. Awful song choice tho...yucky.

Did anyone else notice that Antonella seemed to dismiss the judges comments? Especially Randy's. Her initial reaction was like "are you kidding me? yeah whatever." And her response to Ryan's questions...man she is horrible all around. Great legs tho. Shazam!

It appeared on the Waiting to Exhale soundtrack. One of the best-selling sndtrks out there. I'm sure at least 2 of the judges (Guess which ones) have heard it before.

This is the worst season yet.

Well, from what I've heard (which is supposedly the key thing for this show), the black women are rocking this season and the white girls are going down (we know Antonella does). But seriously, does it matter about a gap in the teeth? That is easier to correct than the voices on these white chicks. If Antonella isn't gone, it's for two reasons only and they are called left & right.

I don't give a rip about the gaps in the teeth. Yes, Antonella is hot and everything, but I do NOT want her in a singing competition when she can't sing. I'd rather have the gapped teeth gals who can make me melt when they sing.

Antonella can do other things with her mouth to make me melt, singing is not it. I really don't believe she is better than about a dozen other people that didn't make the Top 24. I've heard plenty of people singing karaoke better than her. But well, that's in front of a bar of drunks, not 37 million peoples.

I submit: Haley > Antonella.

That goes for BOTH singing AND looks. Antonella is nice looking but Haley beats anyone I have seen on the show in quite a while.

03-01-07, 04:04 PM
Based on history, I think at least 2 of the black girls will get cut before the final 8. And I don't believe it's based on racism but rather just the fact they are appealing to similar demographics. Of course, the men and the other five girls are all so unspectacular it may balance that effect out a bit.

I didn't know it was on that soundtrack. I heard it on a Divas collection. But none of the judges mentioned Chaka Khan. They usually point out the artist if they recognize them such as the case of Celine or Whitney, etc.

I'm sure they're aware of Waiting to Exhale....at least Paula would be. SHe worked with Babyface and I'm sure she kows his catalog very well (which surprised me they gave so much credit to the chick that did that hiorrible rendition of Queen of the Night).

My wife and I commentd on how the black women had the killer voces this year and the other girls were weak in comparison....problem being other than the cute gil that went last, Lakeisha and Melinda have a older style that I don't think would have a great pop following. The last girl seems more marketable.
