Got Something to Add?
Great job, Nick! By the way, Paul clearly chose "Alone" twice because he wants to be Carrie Underwood. Words of wisdom from my apathetic teenage brother.
and ffs. what on earth would make paul think it's a good idea to sing "alone" AGAIN? it somehow was even worse this time around.
motown is my favorite week. and i'm horrified that i will have to hear a rendition of a song i probably love by lazaro. :(
I'm done with this show Lazaro needed to go home. He sang off key and is out of his depth. Paul has a beautiful voice and is far more marketable
lazaro sooo needed to go,, he was so bad.. and he knew it...hes getting smuggish looks on his face now also,,,paul can sing rings around him... so in 3 more weeks there wont be any male singers left? that will be strange
Tonight is the first time in a long time I feel that AI is at the end of the rope. Do they have a new program director or something? The excitement and feeling like it's worth watching is just no longer there. That magic AI used to have is now gone. Maybe it's just me but that's how I feel since last week.
Paul may not be the best voice in the competition, but he deserves to stay more so than Lazaro. I'm starting to develop a seething hate on that guy...
this show is super rigged! I called it, I said if Janelle is safe then this show is rigged.....Look at the Dial Idol results! She had the lowest percentage of dial tone by ten thousand miles!!! she had the lowest last week too.....they keep making Janelle safe, production only!! this show is beyond ridiculous now!
@takakupo Take out the semicolon and you got it right.
@Samson58 Lazaro will be there til the final weeks :)
@Rickey The Country Boy archetype has never won this show and I'm definitive in the opinion that Paul shouldn't be the first one :P
Sorry though Rickey. It seemed like you liked him :]
@Rickey Aaw, Rickey...it's hard to be mad at you, lol. I'll give you a bro-hug, haha. :) Paul was a decent singer, but he was so cabaret and so cruise ship. To be honest, I was surprised that he made the top 10. The winner must be Candice, Kree, or Angie. I'd like Candice or Angie to win.~
@Rickey I didn't think he would win but I thought for sure top 4 or 5. And we all know they're only going to use the save on a Angie, Kree or Candice. MAYBE, a slight *maybe* Burnell if it's the last week they can use it.
@jpfajardo Paul's shirtless pics have been floating around in the last few days ... the ones with a girl and another guy who people say that that person was his ex bf.
@kelvin701 You've only felt that since last week? Season 6 and above for me. ;p
@hrstump American Idol needs to retire soon.........
@Klope62 Good job, I will listen to you from now on.
@KimKamGo Totally agree with you on that one based on the performance last night. For Lanzaro not be in the bottom 3 tonight show that this is not about singing but other things.
@DanielVollmer Is Dial Idol even valid anymore if there are so many more votes coming in online?
@DanielVollmer Dial idol only uses phone calls. It doesn't count internet or text votes which I feel account for the majority now so I don't even bother looking anymore.
@DanielVollmer dial idol is no longer relevant
@Mikhail XO A throwback to my days of moonlighting as a stripper.
@takakupo You've obviously forgotten about Scotty McCreery who won the show just two seasons ago.
I can't help myself. Unless the man is a sexy composer, I'm just not into his music. You know the last male vocalist I actually liked on Idol was Danny something from season 7 and now, he dresses up as a woman on youtube. Go figure.
Wow, I need to go home because I am drunk. I mean, I'm not really drunk, but how could I forget that? XD I'm so disillusioned with Idol.
@ArchieSue You're fine, darling.
I recently buried my bf's mom and now his sister is going to die from
cancer. I think I have a right to act like a fool on here and I don't
give a crap what people think of me at this point, it just a fracking
blog and ban me if you like. Peace, lols.
@danielvollmer Well, Nigel has been known to make homophobic or questionable comments on SYTYCD. Which is strange, since he previously was a dancer, and has probably been surrounded by gay male for YEARS. But for tonight, Paul was definitely bottom 3 material, and his sing for your life performance was not good, so I don't think there is any conspiracy tonight with Paul going home.
Yeah b/c even is half the people vote through the phone, the other half can get their 50 votes in in under 30 seconds and I remember 50 votes could take over an hour to get through the phone so I feel less and less people are using the phone so even if the person is in the bottom on the phones, maybe all their fans are using the super vote and texts instead.
