I couldn't even muster the energy to review last night's performances. Better luck next week.

Not that I think about it, some of the points made about Haley here were pretty spot on. The Buh Buh Buh parts was unintentional comedy and she is kind of awkward onstage. The judges raving that she was the best performance of the night was ridiculous. If Simon were still here, I'm sure he would have said that performance was equal to a Hotel lounge singer act.

BTW, I'm sure alot of you think this, but Steven Tyler has become this years Ellen. His opinions are absolutely worthless. None of his thoughts are worth a damn IMO. It seems like after the auditions/Hollywood week rounds, he's just coasting and collecting a paycheck.

Scotty has been at the top of the DialIdol predictions every week except for one week, where he was #2. Is he going to be this year's winner? He's the country singer, right? Seems bland and unremarkable, so he's probably got it in the bag.

Every season I'm dumbfounded by how the judges cut much better singers during Hollywood week than the ones who eventually make it to the top ten.

This years top 11 are mediocre at best, and a few of them are absolutely horrendous.

You could go to any random karaoke bar in this country and find better singers than most of the remaining AI contestants.

Yup, other than the occasional funny 1-liner, there's nothing worth listening to.

Naima, Stefano, and Thia will be in the bottom 3. Naima sure to go. Would rather that Stefano leave but I think Thia is the 2nd casualty tonight.

I don't get the dislike of Haley...I thought she did a really good job and even did a rewind to watch it again....usually, I fast forward through half of the performances.

... and he's leading the pack in followers on Twitter which is also an indication of his popularity.

I think that he'll make it to the final two, but that either Lauren Alaina or Pia Toscano will win. He has a very strong following now, but as others get eliminated I don't see him picking up too many new followers. With regard to Lauren, she had a clear lead early on but she's been slipping while Pia's going strong on her ballad wave.

Lauren's slipping seems to me just an issue of maturity, she is only 16 after all. She had a hard time handling critisism.

Thanks Mr. Abrams, but I'm dead serious. Anyone who thinks your son is a good singer needs to have his ears cleaned out.

So at the beginning they gave the ominous "you won't believe who's being sent home"....who wouldn't believe this bottom group?

Between the 3 that were in the bottom, I would have rather seen Thia stick around. But, I know that Paul has some kind of quirky appeal to some.

As long as Lauren Alaina and Pia are still in this, I'm still interested.

Yeah, I'm actually surprised these 'artists' aren't embarassed to peform this shit on a show about real singers. They aren't doing themselves any favors.

And does will.i.am even have a real voice? Every time I see him he's so loaded with auto-tune that it makes him sound like an old man with a throat cancer voice box.
