@Rickey Could you post the mp3's of Breanna's "Bust Your Windows", Tenna's "Lost", Bryant's "New York State of Mind", and Josh's "Better With You"? Pretty please? :D
Is there a way for you to reverse the order of how the blog posts appear? It's so confusing because the latest post appears first and we have to read from the bottom to know the story. But oftentimes the posts get mixed up. For example: you say "And the person eliminated is:.. Amber Holcomb is safe!", because it was the heading of the previous post. Why not let us read the blog from the first post? I know I did not really write what you exactly posted; the quotations are more for emphasis than quoting per se, but I hope you got what I mean. Just a suggestion.
Lazaro, top 3! Ugh! I can't stand it. Anyway, not watching the show anymore - just reading Howard and Nick's recaps. They're more entertaining, more sane, and it's over in a few minutes. Lazaro, top 3. What are the voters smoking??
The Funny thing is people rant on and on about Lazaro...does anyone remember the much hated stripper Nicki in season 1 who went all the way to top 3.............Lazaro is keeping the show exciting.....and god knows with all those girls they need it....the show is far from its last season guys....sorry with the millions of viewers it still pulls in.....Im sorry in the words of Cher ...you havent seen the last of it yet
Oh hell I missed all the fun. Shocker, Laz in the top 3, lols! :) He could win it all. Poor Burnell, I got my points but I will miss him. Love the after show clips with Nicki crying. Awwwww..........
SO HAPPY...LAZARO was top 3 tonight.....Im so happy :) the fun continues....may the latino mess up Nigels plans for an all female finale :)
I am shocked it was not LAZ yet, anyway....AI needs a lot of work!
Love Carrie.... miss Season 4..... Loved Bo Bice and Constance M......
Lazaro is the Sanjaya of the season. sucks Burnell left, he was actually really good. It was obvious that the only person holding back from the save was Nicki...way to go.
I would love it if Lazaro won this season. It would be the Looney Tunes mallet whack to the groin that Idol deserves.
Nicki stated openly that she's not using the save on a boy ....so next week, Lemme guess...
Laz closes the show and a girl and forcibly at the bottom so they can use the save?
@KleinDude23 Eneman milako yan. Hahaha
Besides crimes against music, Lazaro shoud be charged with crimes against fashion. What the fuck is he wearing?!
@amor825 I've actually been trying to figure out a way to do this, because it's been bugging me too. But as far as I know, Wordpress doesn't seem to have a function to reverse the order of the posts. I'm sorry. If I could change it, I definitely would.
Nikki's "Black Velvet" was quite good, as was everyone on Big Band night. Obviously there are some outliers here, but that was season 1. Not only have we come to expect greater things season after season, we do expect someone in Lazaro's position to have a passable performance.
@djfabian Lordy your talking about Nikki McKibbin, lols. Lazaro is endearing and sweet but he is a train wreck. I guess that makes him fun. I still would of like more variety. Too many ballad singers. Oh well it's all good. Laz is the last standing guy. :) Go LAZARO!
Awesome "Still Rolling" clips, found on other blog. :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=5n3b5_H-uCc
@djfabian You were right, lols!
@Klope62 The backlash will be horrible revealing the top 3 with Laz in it. Poor Lazaro, I feel bad for him now. :(
@jeffreychrist I'm trying my best. Did you read my tweets last night? Apparently they worked!
@elementalman Burnell wants to hug Amber...lol
@jeffreychrist I LOVED HIS PANTS!!
@jeffreychrist Love you Jeff.
@jeffreychrist LMAO... so true
@NickRoman1 @amor825 Or you can just revert to the old style and have everyone refresh every once in a while. The live blog seems easier since you just type it in and go. And readers on the page are informed if a new "live blog" is up. It does look weird as a "recap" -- so maybe a warning in the post to scroll down first for peeps who read later?
@takakupo Interesting theory. Unless you consider John Stevens, Jasmine Trias, Scott Savol, Chris Richardson, Sanjaya Malakar, Haley Scarnado, Kristy Lee Cook, and Tim Urban, all who had people wincing and complaining about their staying beyond their welcome. That is not to mention winners Taylor Hicks and Lee DeWyze, who had many shaking their heads. It has been rare that the judges/producers have given a full field of contestants who were competitive and true challenges for the win.
