Apparently, Jessica hopped in the helicopter, and three minutes later, landed and got int a limo. Heh.

 

Looks like there won’t be a reveal of the judges’ choice songs today.

Why I love JJ in the finale?  Coz I'm tired of WGWG teenie porn result!     Plus, PP is worse than all the past WGWG winners! 

 

By the way,  Kris Allen's Vision of Love is quite good single!  Let the haters begin attacking WGWG#3!

Do you have any idea how many people attended her homecoming both in Eastlake HS and USS Midway? I've been searching all over the web for this.

It was clear who the judges and Jimmy wanted to win. They would do or say anything to make Josh & Jessica look better than the others. Even the day jessica got voted off Randy got on stage and told America to vote for the best contestant Jessica. We all know American Idol is fixed.

Thank you so much Jason for keeping us updated with the pics/vids and stuff!!! A lot of us are so happy for her.

The top 3 are deserving to be in the spot they are in.  Let's just welcome them happily.  No matter who wins, it wouldn't matter.  What matters is whoever the music producer will sign up, and everything will just follow.  Let us stop criticizing and hating them.  All they do is just prove to us they can sing and entice us to vote for them. Eventually, we will be buying their CDs. I would certainly be buying Jessica's, Joshua's, PP's and the other idols who will make it. That's for sure!

She is home schooled because of her career so how does she visit her HS? I like Jessica but have an issue with idol pushing her on us so blatantly. I hope we have P2 and Joshua for the finale.

Go Jessica! You're the only one that can save us from that evil WGWG!

 @imtamedbyu Mathematically you can fit approx 16,200 people in one football field, Just by looking at the pictures I can maybe say more than half of it was occupied so maybe 8,000 people are in the football field...and if you add the people in the bleachers....I'd say maybe 15,000.  I don't think this is accurate though, haha, but 6,000 is hard to believe. It has to be more than 10,000.

@lrothlis If you think AI is fixed then don't watch it...there's a turn off button on this little thing called remote. Quit expressing an opinion based on incomplete evidence/ speculating because you're are just making yourself look stupid.

@lrothlis So you created a livefyre account and went to Jessica's homecoming photos and videos page just to spew out your bitterness and dislike, seriously? Of course judges will have their favourites but that doesn't mean you can't vote for your favourite right? Stupid.

 @CEugenio  ohhh.. I'm Pinoy myself but, I'm tired of "Pinoy pride" :(  ... Technically, she's american.

@Idol cookie She only home school when join idol but she was a student there before idol.

 @Idol cookie eh!  Jessica received harsh comments even at slightest weakness or error.   Ledet even got a standing ovation when millions of Americans saw how he lost many of high notes due to his oversinging.    4 times, WGWG#5 got a standing ovation even though his pitch was off-tangent to what he's singing (using rocksy bluesky genre as his excuse).   So who's pushing whom?     As for the save, who in that crop of contestants could sing the song sung by Jessica when she got the least number of votes, huh?

 @Idol cookie that's laughable. They've been pushing Joshua and P2, yet always bringing the criticism for the girls

mharms

 @Idol cookie Laughable. P2 has been on track to be the winner since his audition. He can totally blow a song and give several mediocre and uninspired performances and still receive stellar judges comments. Joshua has been pushed on us much more heavily. What is the current standing-o tally for him at this point? 12, 13... Whatever - they are the top 3.

 @JeremyGable Wait - officially it could still be a  BGW/OG = Black Guy Without Guitar that could save us from WGWG. .......but I'd much rather it's Jessica!

@CVS You are one to talk CVS, you recently opened a livedyre for the purpose of spewing hate and making Jessica's fans look crazier. You seem like the bitter hypocrite not her.

 @jlscott13 thanks. I'm actually really looking forward to that. Also, did the judges reveal their song choice for the top3?

@jlscott13 @mwk89 Thanks Jason!

@mwk89 It's not laughable. It is obvious they want her. Don't you remember Randy's silly screaming when she was saved saying she was one of the best singers ever !!!!! Now that is laughable and until all of this judges crap of favoritism, I had a track record here of loving her! The fans who post about her on here are ugly, nasty and dirty. They force good fans away from her camp.

RodPatrick

 @mharms Of course, all of them are Americans regardless of race!

RodPatrick

 @mharms I agree.   At least Ledet is not a bald black guy and doesn't fit to any stereotype of past winners of singing competitions in America, not just idol!    Jessica's win will be something new.   Mexican/Asian.  Sweet!

@Mikhail XO @Mikhail Thank you and you are cute too! But I'm serious...just let me know.

@Mikhail XO @Mikhail LOL. I'm not kidding...I could ask Charles to use my handle instead if ever he wants to comment.

@Mikhail XO @Idol Also, since you are one of the moderators here...let me know if you want us to just share one username...that's no problem.

No, @Mikhail XO @Idol. He's my boyfriend. C stands for Charles. He's sleeping and i just read his comment here. Do you want me to wake him up for you? Hehe.

Hi @Idol cookie. If you'll look at CVS' first comment, it was 4 days ago...not like Irothlis who i think just created an account yesterday and her first comment was on Jessica's homecoming page telling how unfair the judges are and AI is fixed...Anyway, if I was Irothlis my first comment would probably be cheering on my favorite contestant's page and not on another contestant's page expressing my dislike. Just sayin'. Thanks!

NathanDG
NathanDG

@Idol cookie I think Randy Jackson said ”one of the best singers” to most of the contestants especially to the remaining three. We know that BS but I won't take it against Jessica. Hehe. Also, i was an Elise fan but it was interesting to me why most people here are bashing Jessica out (her teeth, mother, etc...) so I started watching her performances and honestly i kinda liked it. So you could say that the people who were bashing her out here made me like her...We kinda reacted in complete opposite. Haha.
