I agree Chikezie is gone tonight, Ramiele will get a pass cause she was ill, and Kristy will coast on a good song choice.
If you are going to sing songs in foreign languages like Mr. Castro does, you should be able to at least pronounce the words in them right. Jason Castro does not seem to have a good ear for foreign languages or maybe it is a tongue??

Of course, the teenage girl voters and fans probably could not tell how off his French and Spanish pronunciation seemed to be.

I think David Cook gets better every week...............just wish all the others would take a few chances, instead of playing it safe and boring.

WOW!! His Billy Jean was Great!!! Almost didn't recognize it at first...
He's my favorite contestant by a mile!!!!!

IMHO he blew Chris Cornell's version out of the water.
Here's Chris's version for anyone who wants to listen:

And David Cooks version:

Hi Minty! Thanks for posting Chris Cornell's version. I love it! I've heard it before, so I know that David Cook didn't come up with this himself. I have to admit he did a good job though, just don't think he should get credit for arrangment. We'll see who go's tonight! Please let it be Kristy Lee Cook or Chacakeeze!

Hey Chels,,,
Just got home. Was out for the evening and had to watch the DVR to get the results.
My hope was Jason Castro to go. He's a cutie , but his "duh' attitude turns me off.

2nd pick for me to leave was Brooke. Too sweetzie. And I think Simon has the hots for her or she would already be gone. Yep,,, she can play piano, but,,, She can't sing That great...
I kinda liked Chakeezee tho. Had a good voice for alot of the stuff I like.


PS Chels... How was your Easter,,, How was dinner???
I cooked for a crowd here in NC... Still eating freakin HAM!!!!
Threw out the mashed pot. and asparagas..
But geez,,, I need a STEAK!!!!

Great Links Mint!

We still have to get rid of Kristy and Ramiele and Brooke. Then the competion can begin. I just hope it is those 3 first (in any order).

Really surprised that Syesha Mercado was in the bottom three this week. She must not have developed a loyal fan base like many of the others who IMHO have far less talent than she does. Call that the Taylor Hicks phenomenon. The Soul Patrol (Taylor Hicks' die hard fans) kind of took over Season 5 on American Idol. Liked Katherine McPhee, Elliott Yamin, Chris Daughtry, Paris Bennett and Kellie Pickler more than Taylor Hicks on AI5.

What place did Daughtry finish that year. In terms of record sales i think he is number 3 behind Clarkson and Underwood.

He was number 4 on AI5.

Have had many of the Idol contestants from my neck of the woods.
Chris Daughtry from the next town over, Fantasia from our town, Clay Akin, Bucky Covington and Kelly Pickler less than hour away.
This is the first time in years with no Carolina contestants in the top 12.

I think when it gets down to the last 5 or 6, it's gonna be hard to let any of em go tho.
So much talent.

But the headbanger that I still am, I always go for the rockers. Hated Amanda left.
Loved Chris Daughtry and Bo Bice.
And even if David Cook doesn't win, I agree he'll make the most $$$...

Some random thoughts about AI.

Wonder if with Kellie Pickler is that just a dumb blonde act or is she naturally that way??

If they pick country songs next week as the genre to chose from, we may get Kristy Lee Cook for another week.

Had been hoping that Chris Daughtry would win AI5 even though I liked to see Katherine McPhee stay around too. There is always the pretty girl factor with us straight guys like with Kellie Pickler, Brooke White, Kristy Lee Cook, etc. the pretty boy factor also seems to explain Jason Castro and to a lesser extent Michael Johns.

Tal,
Just hope Jason doesn't become this years Sanjaya.

Kelly Pickler was cute as a contestant, but then she went thru that awful Dolly Parton look.
It's great for Dolly, but not Kelly. Thank goodness she's starting to ditch it.
And I think she's just naturally a dingbat. No acting. But cute tho.
She'd be great on a sitcom.

I think Micheal Johns is very handsome, but I tend to gravitate to the kinda different, quiet seeming intelligence, of David Cook, and word nerd that he is. (Can ya tell I'm a fan???)

I think Chris D. was glad he didn't come in # 1 as he would have had to be stuck with the AI contract, and wouldn't have had much control over his career for quite awhile.
As least that's what he said on one of the local news interviews.
But I also thought he should have won...

Thanks for posting the 2 versions of Billie Jean. David Cook's was my favorite.

I wish David had been able to sing the whole song instead of the AI version. He is my choice for the winner. I am not usually drawn to the rockers but there is something about this guy that is original and appealing. He has the stage presence and confidence and the voice.
