    Haven't seen the show yet, but I am so very happy to read that Brielle didn't make it. Young or not but she was so annoying.

    I'm really bummed Reed is gone!!!

    And I wanted to say something before, but I haven't had time to post. I'm really PO'd that Jermaine, the guy who didn't make the top 12, got to have the sweet spot Tuesday night. Shouldn't the person who got the extra chance at least have to sing first - in the spot that is most likely to be forgotten by the end of the evening? Not to mention it's been proven over and over that voters can't resist the pity vote. Gotta save the poor person who nearly lost their chance. I don't dislike Jermaine - or at least I didn't. Now I just resent him. He took somebody's spot - and it might have been Reed's.

    OTOH - Jimmy Iovine said he could listen to a whole CD by Jermaine, but he thinks Reed is too campy for this show. I just didn't get enough of Reed yet. And I think Jermaine would be better as a backup singer.

    Every year there's one contestant that everyone loves, but I just don't get. This year it's DeAndre. Hated his version of Reasons last night, but thought he did an okay job tonight. It's just his vibrato. It's like fingernails on a chalkboard to me.
    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

    Erika van Pelt is my girl this year. From the first audition there was something about her that captured my attention, much like Scotty did last year. Here's hoping she captures the voters as well.

    I think America got it right this time. The top 10 are the best singers! But, it is disappointing that the judges insist on pushing through people who obviously do not have America's votes.

    I may be the only one, but I think that Deandre is terrible! He's a modern day Tiny Tim in my opinion! But, I knew the judges would put him in, even though his last-chance song sucked. Maybe J-Lo will get on her cell phone and send him a bunch of votes next week, since she's obviously smitten.

    Totally agree that Jermaine took a spot from one of the guys. I also thought that they will be selecting 2 guys and 1 girl for the wildcard spots. I think Jermaine took Deandre's spot in the top 10 as I have seen several polls where DeAndre had more votes than Jermaine. It is unfair for the others because Jermaine got sympathy votes, he sang last, and everyone loves the underdog...it's the Melanie Amaro factor. That being said, if Deandre made the top 10, the judges would not have put Jermaine through. It would have been Jeremy, Erika, and Jen. I think Shannon was one of the weaker girls and I think Jen should have taken her place. I think Jen sang better in the wildcard round over Erika. Erika lacks range. She reminds me of Alison Moyet of Yaz. Shannon appealed to the evangelicals (ala Santorum) to get votes and it worked by singing a Christian song and wearing a conservative prom dress. I can't believe Brielle was even in the wildcard round and she bombed. They could have picked someone else.

    Top 5 boys should have been:

    1. Phillip
    2. Joshua
    3. Colton
    4. Jeremy
    5. Deandre

    Top 5 girls should have been:
    1. Jessica
    2. Elise
    3. Holly
    4. Jen
    5. Skylar

    3 Wildcards should have been:
    1. Erika
    2. Heejun
    3. Reed

    Generally, I like the results though except for poor Jen who didn't make it and she almost did. She was touted a front-runner and so was Reed but then that fizzled. Totally agree with Jimmy Iovine. He got 90% on point. The only performances that he didn't like of the top 13 were Heejun's and Deandre's. All in all I think this is the strongest top 13 we've ever had. No sympathy votes for handicapped people, no banking on raw potential, no picking wildcards to fill demographics. Although Jeremy and Shannon I don't agree as much, I think they are better singers than what America or judges selected from previous seasons.

    I love Alison Moyet ... Midnight is one of my favorite songs!

    I also agree with Jimmy Iovine's assessment of Deandre ... that he needs a coach. He has major potential for marketability.

    I haven't watched Idol for a few seasons, so tired of crooners being in the top 12 that will not sell records in todays market. As much as I didn't like the over the top format of The X Factor, I really enjoyed seeing different genre's of singers showcased.

    If not for Deandre, I would be sitting this season out as well. He may not have the best vocals, but that's not what sells anyway. There are tons of people with mad vocals.

    Nah, I don't think everyone loves DeAndre. I think the JUDGES love him (which is why I predicted him as a wildcard), but I don't think America's into the hair. He'll be fighting the bottom every week until he's out, which will be before the end of March.

    The one I don't get that everyone loves is Heejun. Okay voice, but puts on an affectation of not being "all there" for the humor value. He's going to be the one whose phenomenal progression this year baffles the heck out of me. I thought it would be Eben, but it's Heejun. Ah well.
