Definitely enjoyed the girls' performances more than the boys' last night. It will be difficult to winnow it down to 5 out of the 12. I'm wondering why they are not starting with the top 24 and voting down to top 12 like they usually do. Off hand I can say that I think Rachel should go-- that was g-d awful with her trying to vamp it up or sumthin' and I didn't know the song. No, no, no to Ta-Tanisha, just no. It's so obvious how this is the year for a girl winner and the judges are trying to steer the viewers to certain types. Ashton is a pretty lady and looks the total part of the diva but that song was rough. Obviously the judges lapped it up and told her she was the diva, but in a good way. Lauren Alaina- ugh- what a tart! And she's only 16? Way too much makeup and suggestive moves. Gosh, I feel old. But I don't know why they love her so much. I'm not hearing what they are hearing.
Bring back Melinda Doolittle and Elliott Yamin-- THOSE were singers! Amen!
