    Omg Kristin baldwin should definitely join you more in idolatry. She’s spot on on how moronic Ramiele looks. She tries to be the cute and pretty one but her sinsging is lame and mediocre, i rather see her gone before Kristy. Yeah that’s how much i can’t stand her. ALso i’m really hoping next week michael johns gives a really good performance. His “A Day in the Life” studio version was really good.

    I believe Carley Smithson just had a poor song choice, but she shouldn’t have been in the bottom 3. David Cook is doing an outstanding job and so is Michael John. Kristie and Ramiele should be the next 2 to go. David Archuleta is going to remain the favored, but I think a lot of these contests will have a singing career in the future. Very good talent this year.

    Logically Ramiele should have been in the bottom three because she sounded very Kareoke. It should have been like this:
    Ramiele
    Kristy
    Chikeze
    and Ramiele would have been eliminated.
    Carly was the monkey in the middle not because of her choice of song, but because she chose to arrange a balad into a drab and over-dramatic mess. She can’t do kick a-s songs all the time, but when she does ballads they can’t be tacky.

    You know what, I am an English living in Thailand. Michael Slezak must be axed from EW. He is not intellectual with his write-ups. No wonder, I canceled my subscription. Slezak, you are such a pinhole in the assin!

    Leave Ramiele alone. You know, we all have abnormalities. The girl can ACTUALLY SING, she has a great voice. She only needs to improve her person personality. Building up her confidence. Please spare the asian! I am a CEO of Tiffany and Co. in New York along with my homo assistant VP Kevin Christensen, an Ex mormon gay

    I said it before on the other message board: I think Ramiele = Diana Degarmo and we should just get used to her.

    Oh, my god, this kristin woman is annoying. I also felt that the black bird apology was a bit too much, but I don’t think she was playing the pity card. She was merely responding to Simon’s moronic objection. Had he ever heard the song before? It wouldn’t surprise me if he hadn’t. With judges like these…

    I think that Kristen got it right with comments about the pity statement to Simon. Only slightly less annoying were Brooke’s interjections. However, Brooke seems to be better at making the TV audience like her. As for what Carly was wearing, please don’t make me remember it … I would love to know who is making the style decisions for the competitors this year!

    Carly Smithson should not have been in the bottom 3. Ramielle should have been there instead. Maybe her choice of song wasn’t that great but she’s alot better singer than Ramielle.

    Michael Slezak, it’s not necessary to put “hint, hint” in your topic title, especially in regards to Michael Johns. You have repeatedly slammed him in the past……….I think everyone knows exactly what you think of him. Give it a rest, you’re losing readers here. You know, there are quite a few of us out here that see and hear Michael a lot differently than you. Jason Castro is John Travolta reincarnated ……..I’m waiting to hear him sing Let Her In. Carly thinks her tattoos set her apart from the pack (in her own words), Brooke is nauseatingly boring, and KLC…..ugh!
    Have you listened to Michael Johns? The man can sing. His Across the Universe performance was incredible, and his Day in the Life was not the mess it was made out to be.
    btw, your idolatry videos are boring,and you look and sound terrible. Stick to typing……..you are sooo not a video star. Maybe we should vote YOU out. I think you should consider yourself lucky to still have a job.

    Part of the problem that Carly has is that she and the judges keep saying she reminds them of Kelly Clarkson and that is not a good thing. Her fans don’t want to hear it because she’s the original and no one can compare. Vocally, they both have a great range but personality wise, Kelly had the charm and fun while Carly does seem a little desperate and not as relatable.

    Frankly I don’t see any Idol’s here at all. All the guys may be good for 1 cd, then playing at car wash openings. Chikezee is only good for karaoke clubs. The women…Carly wont make it because of her emphasis on tatoos, Brooke is a Faith Hill wanna be, Kristy should stick to church socials, weddings and rodeos. The others should go jet jobs. David Archuleta might make broadway or Disney…but gone within three years. Bring on some great talent…not this copy cat, mediocre stuff!

    I think Kristen Baldwin (if that is the name of the girl sitting behind the desk with all the negative comments about the Idol contestants)leaves a lot to be desired. I just don’t want to listen to her comments because she has no room to talk about anyone, the way she looks and the way she talks. She needs to get some “refinement” and “plastic surgery”.
