    I guess Janelle is going home.  Kree, Candice and Angie were the best tonight.  :)

    Tonight would be the only night Amber get's credit because that was probably her best performance, but then again all of her other performances are eehhh...

    Added more performance videos up top. Just refresh. Sorry I've been lagging behind. If I could clone another version of myself to take care of videos, I'd do that, but Clive Owen is busy.

    Halo. I don’t know why anyone EVER sings this song on a competitionshow. It’s in such a weird key that it  never sounds like it’s being performed properly. The chorus was great, but the rest was eh. It’s Halo. And that ending was kind of annoying.

    They are trying to get rid of Janelle. It may have worked.

    @ArchieSue it really makes no sense using the save unless its one of those 3..... well maybe not angie

    @ArchieSue blahhhhhhhhhhhhhh  like the pimping of this girl is just way beyond

    I should also clarify that I'm not actually the one uploading the videos to the internet. I'm simply finding them and putting the embed code into the post itself...which really shouldn't take as much time as it does, but we big fellas are a slow lot.

    Ruined a little bit. :P

    @elementalman @ArchieSue It will be funny if they don't use it this season. They really need to just get rid of it. I rather they give me some damn wildcards.

    Actually, I guess that is the thing with Angie for me. I actually really like when she sings slow and kinda soft ...once she picks up, its just so unauthentic and her voice just looses all of its gusto.
