Not surprised that Ilisa didn't make it. They kept going on about her not being sexy enough so it was only a matter of time. More surprised at Jamie's ouster - I thought Jenna would be gone. This week's events worked to bring about more sympathy to Natalie's character, and I do feel better towards her. Wonder if that lasts. I still think Carrie should be part of the group in that she is the only one who has a really good set of pipes. Mind you, she is more rock-oriented, so if the group has a more r and b/pop vibe (which it probably will), that might work against her.
