    My household is totally addicted. And we each have different favorites. I really like Chris, my husband likes Paris and my daughter likes Lisa. Really enjoy listening to Taylor Hicks but can't stand to watch him! We were all happy Brenna the bit.. is gone. It should be a fun season!

    no sugar coating ( I personally like that and wish more people were that way!)

    I also like that raspy Maghee lady but she should spell her name "Magee"

    Dont get me wrong his last performance wasnt the greatest but the sexy factor for Ace is winning the hearts of every women I know. He has to stick around a little longer just for that. Also, I love Kelly but what was Simons problem dissing my girl Carrie Underwood last night?!

    Wave Mandisa rocked

    Mandisa rocked last night. I thought she had passion and commitment.

    Unfortunately my favorite girl, Katharine McPhee -who I thought has talent was not great.

    For tonight-Go Taylor Hicks! :cheers:

    I think Mandisa has the best voice out of the women. I think Chris will go to the end, but I really think Elliot has a good voice too. I just don't think he looks like "an American Idol". :D

    My wife says Elliot looks like a vampire Monchichi, and I think she has a point.

    I initially thought Taylor was retarded the way he moves around on stage, but I guess it's just an ode to Ray Charles. Don't get me wrong, he's the local guy for us down here so I wish him well.

    The whole point of AI is not to find the best singer - it's to find the most marketable singer. Unfortunately, that is probably going to rule out some of the more talented contestants like Mandisa and Taylor - but I hope to be proven wrong.

    Okay just finished watcing the guys. Am I the only one who thinks Kevin is a bit dorky? He has a terrible lisp. Not very attractive for a singer.

    Chris was hot but not as hot as Ace!!!! I agree with the previous statement about Elliot, but the boy can sing!

    While Kevin is a bit dorky, give him a few years and he'll be great. My husband and I who are recent addicts, think Chris and Taylor are incredible. I think Taylor was the best last night, with Chris right behind him. As for Ace, he's alittle to pretty. I'm not sure that falsetto is really going to carry him.

    I think that Ace has got the younger girls votes because he is pretty. What American Idol needs to realize is that they are viewed by audiences of all ages and those of us that aren't teeny boppers anymore spend just as much (if not more) on CDs and music. I think they should extend the age limit. Taylor is good, but painful to watch.

    Wave Kevin is dorky.

    Kevin is dorky.

    Chris and Taylor are incredible.



    Tonight Kevin Covais and Will Makar will be voted off.



    Overall I thought the performances where a little week by all. (Girls and Boys)



    Looking for a spark from someone, the WOW factor.

    :cheers:

    I think Chicken Little (Kevin) and Bucky (whose look has been upgraded this week from "trip to the Walmarts at 2AM" to "trip to the Walmarts at 2PM") will leave this week.

    As for the ladies, I'm thinking maybe Kinnik and Melissa. All I know is if they get rid of Pickler there will be a caravan of 4x4's headed to LA to kick some Idol butt!

    Oh, and Ace is safe 'til he finally comes out of the closet - then he's toast.

    OK, so I'm 1 for 4 this week. At least the judges thought Melissa would go before Ayla as well, so I'm in good company.

    I can understand getting rid of Peter Brady (Will), but come on, Gideon was a better singer than Bucky. Heck, Gideon could be a better redneck than Bucky!
