I voted for "Travis Tucker." Not sure who the second person will be, probably Nikko or Scott.

I'll second that motion.

Wow, no love for Scott? Even Simon liked him last week.

Going by the process of elimination...

Mario and Anthony have enough buzz to survive.

Constantine will coast by on his looks.

Bo has enough talent to stick around.

Scott and Anwar will probably squeak by... Anwar's lost a lot his cache since the auditions; I can forsee Scott's abrasive personality rubbing voters the wrong way, but he can get by on his ability.

So that leaves Travis and Nikko on the chopping block.

Is this the week Bo starts sucking? I hope not, b/c he's definitely my overall favorite. Part of me wants him to just stick with whats working, because southern rock is obviously his style. But after awhile the disco and big band nights will come and he'll need to show some diversity.

I'm just not feeling Anwar and his Predator dreads. He irritates me for some reason every time he performs. I'm sure this is similar to how most guys feel about Constantine. I like Anthony, but he's done way too many power ballads. I hope if he tries to do an uptempo song he won't look as awkward as Clay Aiken when he did "Grease".

My picks to go are Travis and Scott, unless someone else completely screws up.

Scott's makeover makes me see him as a white-version of Ruben, but with less sweat.

Nikko was out of tune...

...including the last note.

How come the judges can't hear that?!?

Agreed. Anthony was very good tonight. Did not think Bo was as good as usual though. He missed a few notes.

Scott - I concur with Simon. It's karaoke. Scott's a strange dichotomy... he comes off like a cocky gangsta, but then starts singing bubblegum pop. It's kind of surreal.

Bo - Not as strong as last week, seemed like he was channeling Scott Stap. Song was kind of boring but it showed he has range, and a hell of a voice that he knows how to use.

Anthony - Dull as dirt. Sounded like something you'd hear in an Eastern European disco. Not my kind of music at all, so maybe I shouldn't judge.

Nikko - Singing Ray Chalres does two things... number one, it makes him look desperate to stay alive, so he's hitching his trailer to Ray's bandwagon, and two, it reminds us that he ain't Ray Charles. (I wasn't as impressed as the judges.) Cynical move and a possible backfire.

Travis - Taking on Bobby Brown? What's he going to do, take a swing at one of the girls who sang a Whitney Houston song? The song choice alone is enough to warrant a thumbs-down, and I don't even have to hear it.

Unless Connie, Mario, or Anwar really fuck up, I stand by Travis and Nikko going. Possibly Scott since he's dipping into his audition song.

Travis is out of tune. It's about time someone heard it.

Okay, Travis was even worse than I thought possible...

I fucking hate that song, and I fucking hate Bobby Brown. And he did it shitty, too.

Looks like Paula's still got a finger up his ass. (But what the hell does she know? She once did a duet with a rapping cartoon cat.)

travis isnt in the same league vocally as most of the remaining contestants.
but he puts on a show, and he draws a certain type of votes based on the show he puts on, and his look
if it continues to be a popularity contest.. travis will survive and scott will be gone

constantine makes me pity him when he dances
and he definitly is one of the lower guys vocally
but he has something that draws a certain group of votes... he continues if its a popularity contest.. but SHOULD be gone

Judges are out of their friggin' minds. Is there ever a performance that Paula DOESN'T love? Cowell is the only voice of reason.

What's going on with the guys tonight? Just about everyone is out of tune. I think something is going wrong with the sound system on stage and its screwing them up on pitch. These guys (even Constantine) don't sing as badly as they are sounding tonight. They are very good singers yet they sound as bad as the girls tonight (with some exceptions).

I'm with Simon on Constantine. Bad Sting impersonation. That's actually a good song, and a hard one to sing, but there's an edge in Con's voice that just grates after a while.

I still say he'll squeak by on his looks.

And I just don't see the appeal of Mario. Dull as dirt pop singer like Justin Timberlake. I'd rather hear Constantine butcher the entire Police catalog.
