    It sucks that he was eliminated before Kathy Lee, I mean Kristy Lee.
    I agree - I can't believe that KL is still there.

    Who on earth is voting for her?

    Eliminating MJohns just shows how tasteless the kids (voters) of today are. I also have no doubt that he'll kick all their asses in the near future.

    I was never a fan of Kristy Lee's, but she's gotten undeniably better in the last three weeks or so. I won't say she's better than Michael Johns, but I do believe that he's been good only intermittently. Other than his Dolly Parton performance, the only time he really wowed me was the Doors performance from back in the top 24. So while I think his ouster was premature, I think he was trending down and she's trending up.

    And I'm older than 24

    Default Mariah Carey music

    Last night, my favorites were the first two performers:
    David Archuleta and Carly Smithson (the Irish gal).

    The only song I had ever heard before is the one Carly did. It was the first time she didn't screech her way through the second half of a song, and I really liked it. Frankly, I didn't understand what the judges were talking about.

    And David A., well I really like his singing. I'm not one of those who is won over by his alleged adorableness. I just like his singing, and I thought he did a great job.

    David Cook and Jason Castro have the internet all abuzz today with comments about how well they did in making the songs their own, and how people were impressed. I didn't know the songs to start with, but I'll take their words for it.

    I thought the stand-outs were David Archuletta and David Cook - glad he was back in top form last night. I also liked Jason Castro. I agree with Simon that the girls were weaker, and if I had to guess, I think it may be Carly going home tonight, or maybe Brooke. Syesha is technically a really good singer but for some reason she leaves me uninspired.

    I really missed Michael Johns. He had a bluesy version of Vision of Love prepared, wish we could have heard it.

    So, so happy to see Kristy Lee leave the show. True, she'd been making progress, but she still bugged me beyond belief.

    I was proud of myself, because I actually called the fact that they'd make two of the contestants switch groups. I knew they'd shake it up in some way. I voted like heck for Carly the other night; I was worried about her. I think the judges are way too hard on her.

    I think the final 2 will be the two Davids. Brooke used to be my favorite, but now I think she'll leave before the final five. She hasn't grown much and she becomes far less appealing when she talks. That girl should NEVER talk. Syesha should go next, though.

    It's funny, I didn't like Brooke at all at first, and she's grown on me a little more each week. David Cook is still by far my favorite though. And I guess the reason I don't like David Archuleta is not his voice...he can sure sing. It's that he's like this little android who only sings terrible banal songs and is completely devoid of emotion. Like Haley Joel Osment in A.I.

    But the one thing that is certain is that Syesha needs to go home NOW.

    Agreed.

    I'd like to believe that Cook could win. But there are just too many tweenage girls out there pressing redial.

    I admit I'm biased against thoughtless arpeggio-izing (i.e., vocal runs). But Archuletta has the annoying habit of doing them with such obvious calculation, I've grown to cringe at this as well.

    What I like about Cook is that his power notes appear to stem organically from emotional passion. Archuletta's are clearly - and awkwardly - choreographed. At least they appear that way to me.

    If by some miracle Cook does win, he needs to form a band. He strikes me as more of a front-man than a solo artist.
