I actually went to bed after I heard James, Lauren & Scotty (hard week for me). They are my top 3 so I was done watching after that! Pia bores me too --they love her but she just doesn't do anything for me. Loved Casey, I really love CCR. Didn't hear Paul or Stefano. Still don't like Haley either.

This is one of those years, though, that I couldn't even begin to guess who will win. I could easily see making a case for Lauren, Scotty or James, specifically.

Like someone else mentioned, this season is definitely one of the best in terms of talent! I may not like each of the performers, but I do recognize the fact that they all have something that makes them shine. As for last night....

Jacob--I've said from the beginning that I dont like and think hes better suited for choir/gospel singing but I thought he totally nailed the Michael Jackson song last night. Thats the first song of his that I liked and sang along too!

Hayley--Still dont care for her, but she definitely has a Joplin vibe, although I do think its hard to truly get the Joplin feel down. Janice Joplin was in a league of her own!

James---Have I said lately how much I love James?? LOL That song is one of my husbands absolute favs and I think James did an outstanding job. Then to connect to the song so much that he cried? I love this kid.

Scotty--Judges are right, he has some funky movements but damn, that voice! I have to remind myself that he is still a teen because when he sings I think of a grown man. Beautiful job.

Lauren--I thought she was ok. Didnt really knock my socks off, but it wasnt horrible.

Pia--Yes, she has a powerful voice but I am always so bored when she performs.

Casey-- I love CCR and I think Casey did a fantastic job with that song! I hate that the judges had to use the save so early, but I am glad that Casey is still around.

Stefano--I wasnt crazy about his falsetto at the beginning but all in all it wasnt a bad performance.

Paul--Oh geez. Not a good version of that song at all. I thought it was too upbeat and fast, and that song needs to be slower and with more power. And I'm not even a Johnny Cash fan! LOL

Bottom 3?? Hmmm....I think Paul, Stefano and Jacob. Guess I have to agree with Dial Idol then! LOL

I've never said Pia doesn't have a beautiful voice, she does, she's just boring. Paul is cute in a way, but he isn't my thing all the way and lacks that power or something.

I like the idea of that new show that is starting... where the judges don't see the person singing.... so it is just about the voice...at first, I think that's the premise anyway?! (I close my eyes and listen to the voice most times too.... I'm old what can I say?)

Yep, The Voice is what its called. My husband wants to watch it just because Christina Auguliera(sp?) is going to be on it. I'm not sure yet if I'll tune in.

Personally I think it was horrible! Pia sings far better than growly voice Haley and Paul. One of those two should have been gone tonight.

I think it's just a matter of time before our top two are going to be Paul and Haley with the best singers of the bunch going home too soon.

The show doesnt air for another hr here in Alaska but some friend(who promptly got chewed out by me,LOL) posted on Facebook about who went home. Have to say I'm surprised...but I guess there were a lot of us who found her boring!

I was very happy with who went home!!! She's pretty and sings well but something about her annoys me, something she does with her eyes, maybe she's just shy, not sure but not a very good entertainer!!

My top 3 are Lauren, Scotty, Haley. I also like James. I like Casey sometimes but he has some odd mannerisms I can't seem to get past!! James has his quirks too, but for some reason they doesn't bother me!!

I really think Paul and Stefano need to join Pia!!!

I'm totally disgusted that Pia was voted off. There is something so flawed about the AI system. Pia was by far the most talented and should have won the whole thing. AI should revamp the rules and think about giving the judges at least 3 saves. 1 each. The wrong people are getting through, it happens almost every year except for Carrie Underwood.

I agree with much of what you said- Pia was the perfect "package" but was totally BORING! I think she was also starting to believe that she was going to win and I started seeing a bit of "diva" attitude starting with her. I'm happy she's gone. However, that said, I would have preferred that Haley and Paul left before she did.

I'm glad Stefano is still there...I think he did a fabulous job on Tuesday's perfornance. I agree about Casey and his odd mannerisms...I don't like to watch him sing. I LOVE James (tics and all!) and Scotty. Those are my 'final two' (I hope!)

Did you see Jennifer? She looked like she wanted to run right out of that building. She was so uncomfortable!!! I looked up how old he was and he's going to be 63 soon! Yikes!!! I know they were going for someone from the Hall of Fame, but geez, there had to be a better option that would come on the show!!!! I would have rather had another group number if nothing else. I like those!!!

I'm sorry but Iggy Pop trying to be sexy is like watching liver gel. It's just gross!

I loved listening to Pia sing. Yeah, she stood there a lot, but she really didn't have any experience with "owning the stage". She'll do much better since she didn't win.

James' tics are caused by Tourette's Syndrome. I really think his voice is very powerful.

I want to say that I was laughing at Russell Brand. He is hilarious. Absolutely hilarious.

Just wondering, because I really don't know, who do you think the "teeny boppers" are voting for? My daughter will be 14 soon and cast a ton of votes for Paul.... why? Because she likes his smile, LOL. I know, so silly, but you know, people vote for others for all kinds of reasons.

Not too bummed by Pia going home. Also thought she was borning.

Casey....Just not sure how I feel about him. The local FOX channel is running a poll this morning asking if people thought the judges wasted their save on him and so far most of the have said no.

Haley....IMO needs to sing a few songs without the Joplin sound. Wouldn't bother me to see her gone before the end.

James....I like him.

Stefano....He needs to at least outlast Haley.

Lauren....Even though she is local I have not been rooting for her. I think she is good but there is something about her that "puts me off".

Scotty....Wish he had picked something besides Elvis. We know already he was an idol for him growing up. I too forget how young he is but I want to see him "rock" at least once.

Jacob....He does have a choir voice. I think his heart seems to be in it and that emotion shows in his singing. i also want to see him "cut loose" too.

Paul....I just want him GONE! I wanted him gone last night. Not sure why he is such a judge's favorite. To me(and I think I said this earlier)every song sounds like a Rod Stewert wannabe.

This REALLY made me giggle!

I know James has Tourette's and I think I love him that much more because of it. (Guess it's from my 14 years working is Special Ed...)

I don't know, there is something about Haley that I like, I do wish she'd try something different with her voice, a little less Janis Joplin, but then again that is part of why I like her.

That's exactly it! That's why Chris won and what's his name from last year....it'snot about singing.....the whole thing is becoming a farce. There should be one vote for each number.....I'm sure anyone will agree that Pia has a much better voice.

My thoughts on this week:

I'm disappointed that Pia was voted off this early. I would have much rather seen Jacob, Haley, Paul and Stefano go first. Pia may not have been the most entertaining contestant, but her voice was far, far better than the other four I mentioned.

I'm also very surprised that they are now down to just two girls in the competition.

Did anyone else read Steven Tyler's lips when Ryan announced that Pia was in the bottom three? Good thing his mouth was away from his microphone...

Iggy Pop may have been able to pull off running around stage shirtless in the 1960s and 1970s, but last night it came across to me as sad, like he was trying to relive his youth or something. (He reminded me a bit of Spike in "Notting Hill", actually.) I knew that was part of his act, in the same way that Elvis Presley's costumes and Elton John's eyeglasses were part of their respective acts. So that's why I didn't feel disgusted nor grossed out by it.

I totally lost respect for Jacob this week. He claimed that his original song choice, "Let's Get It On", went against his moral convictions - yet those hip thrusts he did toward his backup singer seemed to suggest otherwise. Then he made that backstage post-performance comment about how if he was voted into the bottom three it was because America wasn't ready to look in the mirror? OH MY. Totally arrogant IMO!

I thought Paul's rendition of "Folsom Prison Blues" was way too upbeat and out of character for the song. It was like, "I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die, let's PARTY!" Um... no thanks.

I don't care for the gravelly sound of Haley's voice but I think she did better this week than she has in the past.

Stefano seems like a genuinely likeable guy, but he just doesn't have the natural talent of some of the other contestants.

I have to admit I didn't care for James early in the competition, but he's been growing on me each week. I hope he can become a positive role model for those with autism spectrum disorders and encourage them to pursue their dreams.

I like both Casey and Scotty. They both have a bit of kind of awkward shyness, almost geekiness, to them.

Lauren is definitely the better of the two girls remaining. I don't think she has what it takes to win the whole competition, but I think she'll have a successful singing career if she chooses to go that route.

I have got to say that I disagree with everyone saying that Pia had a better voice that the rest of them. I think at this point in the competion they ALL have great voices or they wouldn't have gotten this far, now it's a matter of personal preference and what they can bring as an entertainer. I think each week they all seem to grow a little as entertainers and get better and better, they lose the shyness and gain confidence.

And even if they don't win, just to make it this far they are going to go places, look at Jennifer Hudson and Chris Daughtry?? Sometimes the person voted out at #8 or #5 turns into a bigger star than the one who wins!!!

I did not understand Jacob's comment about the mirror at all. He looked very confused and shocked when they mentioned that.

I never heard him say it just Ryan(or someone)say he said it.

I didn't hear him say it, either, just someone else talking about it after. But for me, there are usually a million other things going on while I am trying to watch, so I could have missed it. I wasn't even sure how to interpret the comment. I think Jacob is one of those kind of dorky guys that is just so overwhelmed with this whole experience and doesn't have a lot of "street smarts" or even common sense to handle it right all the time.

OK, I might have been wrong about the timing of Jacob's mirror comment. I had thought it was during one of the backstage clips that they show when they come back from a commercial break. But according to the article linked below it was during the video montage that they show just before a contestant's performance:
Will Jacob Lusk’s Cockiness Hurt Him on ‘American Idol’? - OK! Magazine - The First for Celebrity News

eta: I found a link with a video clip showing the comment... you only need to watch the first 90 seconds...
