Dayuummm...what happenned to spoilers around here? Evil or Very Mad

Whips FC with a wet noodle...I already had my hopes up Jason would do well with Fragile...I also love the song and thought it was well suited for him.

I will be sure a stay away until after I have watched tonight's show though. I like being somewhat surprized. Shocked

Frazz said the only thing we had to spoiler is who got kicked! Don't you remember her asking what people thought? I used to spoiler everything I wrote and she said I didn't have to Embarassed

Sorry, I will go back to putting everything in a spoiler box.

It is live here. It starts at 7:00 PM Central time.

About David Cook. Just highlight the white letters.

Holy Freaking Crap!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He is so awesome!!!!!!!!!! I was so thrilled with the judges comments! I agree with them - David Cook should win!! What an awesome CD he will make!!!!! This is the most excited I have been about an AI contestant since Clay! I have loved everything this young man has done!

I agreed with Randy and Paula on Jason. I thought he sounded fine, but ultimately it was a safe, rather dull performance. A trip to the bottom 3 would not shock although I'm guessing he'd make it through. He really does need to do an uptempo song soon. I consider Simon's criticism harsh but fair in that I disagreed that it was a bad performance but Jason would do well to listen to what Simon says.

He still brings the insanely gorgeous every week though.

Well, David Cook is beginning to step it up, and Jason is really beginning to fade. DialIdol has him going home.

A friend of mine said she thinks he believed his own publicity about his looks and charm pulling him through and gave a dull performance. She said the same thing happened with Chris Sligh last year although obviously it was for different reasons. She also thinks his attitude about whether he was taking this seriously or not was not good.

DialIdol has David Cook WAY in the lead!! For the first time! It has always been David A. in lead from the second the show is over. Always David A. So I am THRILLED!!! about David Cook! I have seriously fallen for this guy and his brilliance (IMHO) and his voice and his style and everything. Tonight he was exactly what Simon said "Amazing!" I truly am nuts for this guy right now!

I think bottom 3 would be good for Jason. He needs to wake up! I am so turned off right now by his inability to put a descent sentence together. Tonight really bugged me. I expect more from a guy/performer than "the pretty".

ETA: I agree with your friend Badger. I think he thought he would go a long way on his looks (can I just add I hatesss the the dreads) and just really stopped working hard. If he ever did. Maybe he just had a few good performances in him. Maybe he always got by with his looks. I won't even say charm anymore because his response to Ryan after the judges comments blew his charm for me. He came across like he should be sitting in that circle on That 70's Show after they all smoked weed Rolling Eyes

Spoiler:
 

Luca voted late, but unlike the United States which works hard to make people's votes not count, we are more refined. Just list the sorts of info you consider a spoiler, Luca, and we will spoiler it. nobody else cared except about the news of who gets the boot.

EEEK! I found my spoiler box! Ever since a few weeks ago my whole line of buttons on top were gone and replaced with the symbols that are at IDF. I couldn't figure out what happened. Now I see that I had to click on the little A/A box in the upper right had corner and I got all my buttons back. So now I have a "spoiler" button again!

Yes, I was just doing what they do on the Clay boards and talk about my opinion of the performances. So I didn't think that was spoiling because I assume others will have different opinions.

David is still #1 on DialIdol!

Ladies at The Clack House are calling him "Lord David". Works for me! They are loving him! I am so happy for him. It is so cute that Vickilyn is so hot for him because I always think of her as Con's #1 cheerleader, so I am getting a kick out of seeing her all fangirlie for someone else!

I cannot wait for David's recording of BJ! Sky, let me know when it shows up!

I am watching it live tonight.

I so loved Jason's "What a Day for a Daydream." I am sick of his slow stuff. I did not pay attention during anything but his song, though, so do not have a take otherwise.

I have not so far noticed Syesha, but I did like the sounds she was making tonight, even if it is not my favorite kind of song or style.

Chikezie is up now. I really hope he smashes it outta the park again. I will check back in in a bit.

Very enjoyable night on AI tonight. Loads of good performances. My faves were:

David C

Brook

Michael Johns (finally)

Jason

The only one I didn't think did well was Raime. Yes, she's sick, that is a bad piece of luck with everyone else singing that well.

Hey, you gals are really too kind! You don't have to spoiler button for little ole me! Very Happy I just will know to come into this thread later vs. sooner! Wink You would have to spoiler everything regarding what the judges say and if they were good or not...that is not reasonable. Yes, I am a suspense freak and like to be relatively surprized. For some reason, I am into that more than usual this season. Embarassed

Now the real contenders are starting to pull away from the pack! There is sure some serious talent this season.

The serious contenders for me:
David Cook (Duh!) This guy is so talented it is ridiculous he is even on this show...Why do I think he may be better off not winning.

Syesha: She is a pro in every sense of the word and has a downright beautiful voice. The emotion she brings to each performance is so rare to see on this show.

Michael Johns: Yes! He finally brought it! What an incredibly tough song to do...and he totally pulled it off.

Carly: I think this gal has an outstanding voice and is hella talented. I am not a huge fan of that song, but I totally think she rocked it and it was perfect for her voice. Randy...Dawg, you need an attitude adjustment. scratch

Brooke: I missed the screw up, but thought she gave a really good rendition of this song. I disagree with Randy and Simon about the arrangement. I thought it was nice when the band kicked in with the up tempo parts, and I usually hate that.

The rest of the pack? Not worth talking about. silent

Prediction on who will go: Ramielie. Just terrible. Sick or not.

OK, then...executive decision, don't bother with spoilers for anything except the boot when the show is over pacific time that same night, and our lovely Luca won't come into the thread until she has watched it.

Chikezie sucked so I started channel flipping. I actually am more invested in this season's Biggest Loser...so much for variations in taste.

I watched the videos of David Cook and Michael Johns and Carly on rickey.org. All have some major chops in different ways. I liked David Cook personally more than the other two, but I still maintain that if i were hiring singers for the soundtrack behind a film, Carly and Michael would be very high on my list. But that is a very specific niche.

Brook remains the one I will be most likely to pay to spend an evening listening to in some small venue.

You know I'll be right on it!!! He was excellent tonight and finally Michael 'brought it'. I hope he keeps it up. Jason, my Jason, what happened? I don't want him to go just yet, I'm not through listening and watching him! Put him in the bottom three but don't send him home yet. Wink

So glad you all agree David Cook is "da Bomb Baby"!

I am so glad to see that he remained #1 on DialIdol!

DI shows Jason bottom two and Chick at the very bottom. Ramy 3rd from bottom. The last two weeks the person who went home was not the one shown at the bottom, but the one second from the bottom - as Amanda was last week. I still do not think Jason will be the one to go home. I think it will be Chick or Ramy. Poor girl started out so well and so popular. What the heck happened to her? Jason leaving would probably be considered a "shocking boot" and it is too early for one of those.

I adore both Brooke and Carly. I can't decide which one of the two is my fave girl. I love everything about Brooke! So maybe her. Carly has an amazing voice and I totally disagreed with Randy and Simon. I LOVE that song and have Bonnie Tyler's LP with that song on it and Carly sang it even better than Bonnie! For some reason it feels like the judges have turned on her.

Was it just me, or was Randy really hard on most everyone last night? I think he only liked David Cook, Michael, Syesha and Christy. I will say that Christy did pick the right song and sang it well. Seems it saved her from bottom 3 this week. Who would have thought she would make top 9?

ETA:


I hope this columnist has it right!

And this year's American Idol is ...

1. David Cook: Surprised? Don't be. He should have had you at "Hello." At first blush, Cook is a methodical rock singer, and he does front his own band. But he's also a master at picking songs that suit his voice and shock and awe viewers and judges alike. Can you imagine the lead singers of Linkin Park, Maroon Five or Matchbox 20 attempting a Lionel Richie song? Cook did, and his "Hello" has been the highlight of the "Idol" season thus far. He was equally adept, if not as far-fetched, in adapting "Eleanor Rigby," "Daytripper" and All Right Now." I sense he'll handle country and soul week equally as well. Ladies and gentlemen, the 2008 American Idol is ... David Cook.

I have joined a David Cook fan site where you can download everything! I am in the process of that right now. I have already watched last night's performance a (coughfewtimescough) and I am completely blown away by it. I love feeling this fangirlie about a new AI contestant again! It's been a long time.

Here's some thoughts from last night's show from a former fave (said tongue in cheek on this board) Idol. Razz

I think there are some interesting comments in it, especially about David Cook and Michael Johns.

Hey! Con's comments about David Cook just won him a lot of points in my book Razz

I enjoyed his little write up and I think he was spot on on most of the contestants!

I hope you bring that here for us to read every week! Well, at least for me. Some here may just scroll on by!
