As much I like seeing LI represented, I don't think Joseph has a chance of making it past this week.

Joe will be gone for sure. The other will be Travis or David. David really needs to get his shit together this week because he has top 5 potential.

Anthony is so boring, if does some crappy ballad again tonight he might be a shocker to go wednesday.

Scott Savoy is the standout misfit of the bunch. I just don't feel that he's "Idol" material.....and he has yet to impress me.

Great:
Bo - channeling Janis Joplin and slammed it home. Awesome.

Good:
Anthony - finally did a song which allowed his voice to soar
Anwar - okay start, better finish to the song.

Okay:
Travis - better mover than singer
Nikko - good performance, but bad with the eye contact
Joseph - better than last week, still has less range than others.
Mario - okay, just wasn't all there tonight, boring song

Not so good:
David - safe, boring song.
Scott - horrible song choice, sang too low, under-pitch.
Constantine - Simon's right, rocker-wannabe

Bo... goddam.

Nobody else was in his league tonight. He blew everyone else away. That kind of music is damned hard to sing.

I like Patman's method

Great:
Bo - He was so passionate with this you couldn't help but love it. He shows again that he's the true rocker this time around.
Anthony - I hate this song but he made it pretty damn good. I like his voice and he seems like a very likeable person.

Good:
Anwar - He does have a nice voice and does well on the stage.

Ok:
Travis, Nikko, Joseph, David

Bad:
Mario, Scott, Constantine

Another for Bo as the star of the show. Anwar was good, and didn't do that whole creepy grimace thing he going had last week standing next to Ryan.

Anwar could be a Predator with them dregs. Hate the look.

Anthony looks out of place on this edition, he looks like he'd hail from Nordic Idol.

Wow, did Simon get a bj or something right before the show? He was so happy and positive, it was almost as if he was channeling Paula Abdul. the only good dig was the 1970's Portuguese night club remark.

I thought Bo and Mario were the best. I also really enjoyed Travis, mainly for his choice of song. As soon as I heard Lionel Richie's "All Night Long", I just smiled. Not a classic song, but such a happy one and one that is never remade. I much prefer the Idol's to tackle a somewhat forgotten song from the 1980's than trying to tackle a sacred cow like Marvin Gaye.

Bo Bice-- I am not a fan of the genre, but he really does a great job. He has a great bluesy quality to his voice and he picks songs that showcase his talent. Unlike Constantine who seems more affected in his singing and doesn't choose the right songs. I was telling my husband that Constantine looks like he is an assistant manager at a mall Sam Goody or something. Bo has enough talent that I can forgive that he looks like Matt Dillon from "Singles". He has that grunge look from the early 90's down pat.

Scott Savol? He makes Joe Jackson seem good looking. Unfortunately I don't think his singing voice is good enough to overcome his looks.

That Joseph Murena guy is a talentless hack. How on earth did he get any votes last week?

Anthony Federov? Maybe JJ Abrams could give him a part as Mr. Sark's not-evil little brother.

I think the guy who looks like Fes, has a good chance of winning this thing.

the best tonight......Bo and Anthony

I like Constantine's personality, but he can't hold a candle to Bo's talent and passion for the art of music.

I believe in the miracle of Anthony's voice, that will sound corny as hell...but i don't care! This kid can really go far if he applies himself.

I am a huge fan of Mario, i can easily see him going further in the competition.

Anwar...likeable personality.

Nikko......so what! I'm not impressed.

Nikko reminds me of a skinny version of Martin Lawrence in spots.

Constantine has got to be the most overrated contestant this year. Last week he was horrible. This week he was better but still the worst just because everybody else did so much better. There wasn't really a bad performance tonight.

I am really impressed with these guys. When you compare these guys to the top 12 of last year, it makes them all (except Latoya) look like 2nd rate hacks. I remember last year thinking they did good if they could make it all the way through the song without singing off key (which Diana couldn't even on the final night). These guys can really sing!! Too bad 4 of them will be gone by next week.

The two who should be gone - David and Constantine

The two who will be gone - David and Joseph (who really sang great tonight) or Scott (who also did well)

Constantine better not make it further than Bo. Hopefully people will vote for the real rocker and not the wannabe. And is it just me, or does anyone else dislike Anthony. I really don't like his songs or his arm motions during the songs. Cheesy to the extreme.

Even if Bo or Constantine makes it, they won't be able to progress in the competition. It will be way to hard to cover the range of songs they normally do.

How is it any different than the 5-6 gospel divas every year that cover the same range of songs?

Constantine maybe not, but Bo could re-invent every song to meet his style (like Fantasia or LaToya really sang Manilow)

I think David and Joseph or Constantine will go.

Bo

Our family voted 10 times for Bo and once for Constantine (gag, but he was my son's favorite. Obviously my vote has more weight since I hit redial 9 times, .
