Whatever you do don't send Aaron Kelly home tonight. He deserves to remain in the competition.

YAWNNN
YAWNNN

its a really lame song, archie sounded better but his version was still lame-simply cuz the song is horrid.

Also lol at simons face when aaron said why he was singing it, atleast it made sense. Unlike Siobhan whining about her lil sisters and nothin gonna change that-wtf was that about.

People should just stop comparing him to David Archuleta, because, he didn't exactly own OWN the song. So just relax Archie fans.

I agree that this wasn't a good performance, and being first is just the worst position he could be in. The kid's got a nice voice, not a spectacular kind, but he shows potential.

LOL! Thanks for asking that! I've been wondering myself why is everyone mentioning David Archuleta. Aside from this season, I've only watched Season 5 so I have no idea what everyone is talking about.

I don't know why these people picked songs that were done on s7. There were a lot more songs to pick from. Picking a song that Archey had done was just dumb.

People need to shut up with the "worst season evah" crap. Its getting annoying, because its far from the worst. Its not the best, but its not the worst either.

I hope he gets another chance. I really like his voice & I think he can do better than the last couple weeks. I'm not totally invested in anyone this season since Alex got the too-early boot, but I do like Aaron & hope he stays.

If he doesn't become a recording artist, he will still always have a career on Broadway. The boy can sing!

listening to this and siobhan(whom i love so much)...Aaron pipes are way better..but yeah...it sounded too old for a very young guy.....

He just tried to touch David Archuleta's song that Simon himself declared a "masterclass" Big mistake lol He did not even come close to topping him because he just is not nearly as talented. I think choosing that really hurt him.

Holy crap....does he have a frog in this throat?

Well finally! it was time to bring the "young and recurrent" comment. As I said last week, they said it to Katie several times and not even once to Aaron, and he has been more old fashion than Katie

question: no more downloads? besides the one from iTunes?

I usually like Aaron but this was not good. and of course he picks the same song that david archuleta sang two years ago on Beatles week which makes it hard not to Compare to David. Aaron you might be in the bottom 3 sorry

He sounded good but it was dull.... and a little forgetable. I like him though... Where is the big voice we heard back in the semifinals?

Jobe

He still sounds like he has a cold. ?

well at least i agree with you about his voice... lol

This is the other man-boy I can't stand. I'd like to take him and Urban and throw them in a pit full of lions. Go away man cub.

Jason

C'mon, when you pick Lennon and Mc Cartney as the theme, how can you expect everyone to be current and not old fashion???

I think it is not as bad as what they said, I love his voice..

Are you kidding me?! Dude, last year Kris Allen made "She Works Hard For The Money" current! And, a little less ignorant please. The Beatles songs are TIMELESS.

Please go back and watch how the amazing guys from season 7 did. I wasn't an Archuleta fan, but Aaron Kelly doesn't hold a candle to Archie's version.

Also, this kid NEEDS to STOP picking songs already done by other contestants before. David Cook, check, Allison Iraheta, check, Kris Allen, check.

I loved Archuleta but I also love Aaron and see them as 2 different singers......

anoni

is he sick? he sounds sick. or is that really his voice?

I agree that was kinda boring. DAvid archuleta owned this. Now I'm starting to appreciate Archuleta more when I see Aaron sing.

nat

Archey's version is the best!!!

he sucks as usual, I know rickey is in love with him. gross.

go home aaron! david faguleta did a million times better!

Dis Aaron all you like but please don't dis David! (Although he did sing it better)

Joanne

He is NOT one of the best, too shaky, he needs a couple more milleniums practice

Fabian

The Fantasia season was pretty bad but no where near as awful as this year.......and I will inisist that Aaron is the only male of the 6 with any potential at a recording career......

DOH. Season 3 was the most entertaining AI.

Bryan M

Wow, I for one think Season 3 was one of the best: Camile Velasco, Jennifer Hudson, LaToya London, FANTASIA... And honorable mentions to Diana DeGarmo, Leah LaBelle and George Huff.

RPG

Yeah, this season is hundreds times worse than Season 3! At least in Season 3 the good singers were in top 7, but this year the good singers were booted in the semi-final. Katelyn, Lilly, Alex, Paige (arguably), Didi. Now we are left we very few decent singers, screamers, boring lads... ugh... WAY worse than Season 3.

Fabian
Fabian

Bryan hate to burst your bubble but Aaron is one of the best contestants in this most awful of seasons........

LurkNoMore

Awww...seriously, Season 3 was bad?!?!? Season 3 had Fantasia, Latoya London, Jennifer Hudson, George Huff....and all their backup singers. Hands down my favorite season of all time! Even John Stevens wasn't that bad....just TERRIBLE song choices and horrific stage presence. Voice of butter though.

Camille Velasco tried HARD! Diana DeGarmo...bless her little 16-year old self. She was no match for Tasia. I wish Jasmine Trias never auditioned. Also, Leah Labelle should have done WAAAY better, but she had a short run.

Ahhhh....memories.

Katie

well the bad season has to come up again sooner or later, I thought Season 3 was bad this one is close to it.

Bryan M

So I really don't like being so negative, but I am baffled as to how/why this kid has stuck around for so long. His voice is fine but nowhere near exceptional. His tone is not unique. He doesn't have any kind of incredible range. He lacks stage presence / star power. He chooses dull, safe songs. He isn't the type to win over pre-teen girls and he isn't the type to win over cougars. Who on earth is voting for him, and why is HE (and several other of this year's contestants, in all honesty) occupying a spot in the TOP NINE when this country, as anyone who has been to an AI audition knows, is loaded with amazing talent?

It just doesn't make sense. This show, every year, has the potential to be brimming with fresh, jaw-dropping talent... They audition ten and thousands of people... And this is what we end up listening to week after week? I am losing interest at an alarming rate!

YAWNNN
YAWNNN

LOL Bryan you must be 1 of those ppl they show cussing at the cameras after u get 4 no's. All that world class talent they leave behind lawl.

@Katie -- Re: Adam Lambert teaching the rest about "pleasing an audience" -- wow --- I can't wait to see that. He'll be telling them to "smut it up a little", or "don't forget to grab your crotch", and "remember to screech". It will be awesome advice!

Katie
Katie

I agree, He defiantly not up to Archie standard......Hopefully He'll be gone and next week Adam Lambert and teach the rest a few things bout pleasing an audience and having fun on the show....Sorry Aaron fans, after years of watching Idol. he just doesn't bring anything special to the mix. Last years group was amazing, why can't this group get rid of the nerves and let loose, and take more risks.

Fabian
Fabian

Aaron has the nicest tone of all the contestants and I love his country feel.......I will continue to insist he will be in the final 2 with Crystal !!!

Katie
Katie

what age audience is he trying to win over????? I totally agree with the judges on this one. He sorta reminds me of Josh Gracin in season 2 with the am i country or am i pop? He really has no country in him and he picks songs that don't relate to his experiences or are to old for him, at least archie knew how to pick songs.....his best and really only great redition of a song was the climb, he sang for his audition

Margo

I agree that "The Climb" was his best. After hearing that I thought Aaron would be my favorite this season. He sounds so nasily now that I just can't take him seriously. I actually think Tim Urban is a better singer.
