    I AM looking at their two music videos as a matter of fact. I was actually quite surprised at how professionally they pulled them off (considering the crap they were given to work with).

    Of course...that will be YOUR opinion, and that's fine. But I stand by my statement. They have something unique and I think the number of voters who agree speak for themselves.

    By the way...ALL of the juniors are awesome looking. I couldn't even begin to say which one was the cutest. They are all great looking kids

    I think their video was great (just as good as anything the Olson twins did in their early days). Taylor and Tori are very talented and are only as good as the material they are given. I can't wait to see what they do once they venture out on their own!
    TAYLOR AND TORI ROCK!

    Thank-you! I agree!

    I think these kids think the Thompson way is the way to get in, and it's backfiring on them, one by one.
    Congratulations Tori and Taylor!

    So true Dani. Even though I do sometimes get tired of the ballads, if that's what you do best, stick with it. I noticed Lucy stuck with her original style and made it in to the top 3 last night. Smart girl

    You take what you're given, and you do your best. They sang well, they danced well. The fact they were cheesy, they can't do anything about that. Could we really see Lucy and Chantel doing that? I think not.
    Congratulations Tori and Taylor!

    I think you give the kids too much credit (or blame). I'm sure it's the music and choreography staff behind the scenes picking the songs, and teaching them how to perform them. I don't think it's just a coincidence that Jordan, Danielle, Kaitlin, and Morgan changed their styles this week. None of them has been in the top 3 yet. And their song choices were becoming rather predictable. Maybe the vocal coach was just trying to show their versatility. But I don't think they were trying to "copy" anyone.

    - Chantel's "Stoney End". She went from being a mature older singer to a tall girl trying to act like a nine-year-old. Clearly based on Taylor winning due to her energy & spunk.

    - Jordan's "ABC". Jordan was always a little overenthusiastic, but the way she danced and the outfit she wore was clearly a take off Taylor.

    - Danielle's "Locomotion" - Clearly a Thompson-style performance.

    - Jordan's performance on 7/22. She's worn her hair down before, but the whole style & was clearly a take off of Tori's look during "Love The One You're With".

    Of all the stupid threads, this one takes the cake. The Thompsons' didn't invent peppy!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's called performing and that's what these kids are suppose to do. No one is emulating, they are performing!
