    Why would it be the place of an adult who has power to "destroy" a young person?

    I understand why they did not do any harsh judging on these two rounds. They really do want to see who the viewers favor. Once the show starts I hope they are able to give constructive criticism. The contestants themselves have always said they valued Simons words above all others. His delivery was harsh but he was spot on and they all knew it. It made them stretch to be the best they could.

    As much as I like both Jennifer and Steven, they are not good judges. No more gushing, please. It you like them and there is no room for improvement then keep your praise to a minimum. Randy, just continue to do what you do, whatever that is.

    I like Steven Tyler, I really do, but if I hear the man say "beautiful" one more time I'm going to SCREAM!!!!

    I was pulling for Baylie her first attempt at Idol, so I was set to pull for her again. However, while she did enough to get through to the big stage, her nerves took over where others had more control. I don't think she'll go farther. Also, too tight bodices combined with nerves threw a few of them off their game with breath problems.

    Did you notice how many of the girls are from rural areas? I think only one or two claim to sing country, which is remarkable. From the girls this year, I hope to hear range, tonal quality and an understanding of the term pianissimo. Is there anyone on the list who has that delicate touch?

    I think American Idol has run its course. Time to let it die.
    I'm with you. I don't think I'll make it too far this season....just like I didn't waste a lot of my time last season.

    I hear they are having viewer number problems, too.

    Holly is from Liverpool, home of the Fab 4 & a few good singers from the past.

    I agree! What on earth were the judges listening to? I think they must've had earbuds in their ears listening to something else on their ipod.

    Too funny, Prhoshay, I said the exact thing to my husband "Why do I feel like I'm watching the Miss America pagent right now?"
