Or who you would vote for. I've never called. I don't think I would get through anyway.

Wait a second... Ruben hasn't gone yet and he's got a vote!

Anyway, after the first 3 singers I think this week it looks like we've got our first guest judge who actually has something value added to say.

This has got to be the best show where the judges' critiques are worth listening to.

Lionel Richie is the best guest judge so far.

I wonder if Ricky knew that Lionel would be there as a guest judge.

Kimberly really blew me away with my heart will go on. Wow. I was thinking exactly what Paula said, oh great why would she pick this song but she really pulled it off. Celine is a hard act to follow.

And what was up with Simon ripping into Lionel. That was hilarious.

It seems like the better Kimberly Caldwell looks the worse she sings. Did not think she did a good job today at all. horrible song choice.

Being on the west coast and having not seen the show yet, going by the song choices alone, I would think Kimberly C. and Carmen should have switched song choices.

I think the last time Kimberly Caldwell sounded good was when she was cut and brought back as a wild card.

I voted for Ruben.

Honk!

I dislike Clay and Rickey, it's unfortunate both will move on past this round it seems.

Carmen sounded alright, but I dunno, was boring. Kim sounded pretty bad.

Josh sounded alright.

Ruben doesn't "blow me away" like he seems to do w/ the judges, but he's still probably the best of the lot.

I assume this is the song sung by Lonestar? And didn't Josh sing this once already before the final 12?

Great - Rickey
Good - Clay, Ruben, Kim L., Josh
Poor - Trenyce, Carmen, Kim C.

Final 4 will be the "Good" above. - No DOUBT!

P.S. Lionel Richie is an incredible songwriter....

I wonder about this too. Rickey also sang an Earth Wind & Fire song the night the guest judge was from EW&F.

I'm sure they know in advance who the guest judge will be.

Hopefully someone got in his ear about those stupid shirts. He looked a heck of a lot better tonight.

Honk!

Ruben sang the best by far tonight, but Carmen did a good job with "Call Me". Props to her for doing an up-tempo song and waking me up. Enough with the sappy balllads week in and week out. Also, though I was an early supporter of Kim Caldwell, she seems to be unable to get out of the "yelling, husky voiced" singer mode. Still....a hottie!

I agree. It was just weird this is the first time seeing him without the 205 jerseys.

Remember the votes carry on from last week, which is a good move by Fox to spice things up. It ends up a little more tactical, kinda like a Survivor thing - you know who was in the bottom three, so do you vote for them just to keep them on the show?

I HATE Kimberly Caldwell, but think Carmen Rasmusen should stay. Unfortunately we didn't vote for either of them...

Go Ricky!

Here's my play-by-play on tonight's show...

Clay: OMG...Kelly Clarkson's new single is soooo good!

Kim L.: Have you heard the clips from Kelly's new album? OMG! Wow!

Ricky: Kelly's new stuff isn't like that "Moment Like This." She took the time to write really good songs this time. OMG!

Kim C: OMG, the new movie "From Justin To Kelly" will sweep the Oscars.

Josh: Isn't Kelly great? OMG!

Carmen: I have a shrine dedicated to Kelly where I go for at least an hour everyday to meditate and chant "OMG OMG OMG!"

Trenyce: I would love to hear Kelly sing this song. OMG...can you imagine?

Ruben: OMG! Kelly's the best!

Finally, a few words on guest judge Lionel Richie: finally, somebody who actually has been watching the show and is willing to give actual criticism! They should bring him back as a regular for season 3. Oh, and OMG KELLY!
