I think it's called Glambons ;) HEHEHE!

Oh well, I hated how the judges are so hard on her; it does seem like there's favouritism almost...

But here's the thing, the more they are like that to Siobhan, the more people vote for her... Because most know the judges are like getting out of hand. Seriously...

I do believe because of that, her votes went higher... Because in the americanidol.com forums, a lot were saying that they will start voting because of tonight BIG TIME because those judges didn't make sense....

Hey guys is the season 9 summer tour THIS summer or NEXT summer? cuz i heard somewhere that season 8 what doing a tour this summer and i really wanna see Siobhan!

The judges aren't all harsh on Siobhan. Ellen keeps telling her she has a beautiful voice and Randy compliments her most of the time. Kara has joined Simon in criticizing her of late. It's hard to watch as Siobhan gets clobbered by Simon, and now Kara. Kara wishes she could sing 1/2 as good as Siobhan -- she can't!
For all of us fans and they are many, Siobhan isn't going home yet -- she should be in the finals and win!
The rest of the contestants left are all middling singers with no performance skills.
Lee with his raspy voice is David Cook lite. Casey is fair. Aaron is better than the other males, but he's too young and hasn't peaked yet. Mike is so 1960's. Tim is there because of Vote for the Worst, and Crystal is the same each week and doesn't have what it takes; she is not a good performer .
It will be a travesty if Siobhan doesn't win.

To me this whole season is about Siobhan; she is fabulous -- the best thing that happened to American Idol since Kelly Clarkson. What is Simon's problem with her? Personally, I think he's trying to bring American Idol down so his own show can succeed.
On the X Factor the judges choose the contestant's songs, so that's why he keeps telling Siobhan she needs to choose different songs, that she needs guidance "you're all over the place." And for some reason he wants Crystal to win, who is the same each week. Siobhan should get Simon's voice out of her head and do what she does best....perform and let her glorious voice shine through. She's sensational, no one can compete with her. Why does she have to be boxed in with one genre -- that's boring....what should she do be like Crystal who stands with her guitar and sounds exactly the same no matter which song she's performing? Siobhan is versatile, creative and a true artist. I hope she wins!

Man Siobhan has pipes!! I'm really mad at the judges though because they have been sooooooo unfair to her and her confidence is going way down because of all the criticism she doesn't deserve. Her fearlessness is part of what makes her so amazing and she's losing that! I hate it!

She has a powerful voice and awesome range. She she go far her albums will sell. What chops!!

Can't stop watching it. She nailed it. My new favorite performance from her. I love the high notes.
Why no judges comments rickey? Want to see Siobhan stick it to Simon lol.

Chris
Chris

did y'all see Siobhan's face right after she got Simon's feedback??? it's like she's gonna bite his head off immediately if he says another words!!! LOL!!! and it's the best reason ever for her to say that, i think what she's tryin to say is that "i don't give a damn about what people think of me or who i am when i can't even figure it out myself!!!" i don't understand why'd all the judges come off too hard on her lately??? she's like 70% good right???

the judges are completely, way, backwards watching this. this performance was so utterly genius i can't get over it! first of all, nobody seems to have noticed that the hair and the outfit were completely, straight outta Elvis in vegas circa 1974! brilliant homage to the king! then she goes and does this james brown-meets-janis joplin slowed down late 60s soul-down to the song, mashing the purest musical elements of soul and rock, sings the hell out of it, hits every single note - thrilling from note one!
when the judges go on about how she doesn't know who she is - and it's true, she doesn't - that's an exciting thing. it's not good for a major label producer who's investing money in her. it IS good for her as an artist, because she's always going to keep her audience guessing, and it's just more exciting that way. she's a total original by way of kate bush and pat benatar, maybe even sinead o'connor - years ahead of her time. and the adorable thing is even she doesn't know it.
and by the way, adam was all of these things last year and the judges never stopped praising him for it. yes, his voice is stronger than siobhan's, but he does have 10 years practice and maturity over hers, so her weakness compared is completely understandable.
anyway, go siobhan!

I think Siobhan has a very unique voice. When I first heard her sing it was "Wicked Game". I thought Wow!!!! No one could sing that quite as good. Shes young and will only improve by some of the critiques given to her. A couple of song choices seemed not so much her style. I do like her strong sense of self though. Definately not a gal that some one could push around. I wish her to win. Crystal is a great singer as well. Siobhan is my favored though.

the most underrated performance of the night.. i thought she did great.. what do the judges know...?

Siobhan, your`re an outstanding and unique character ( Ireland and most of Europe is saying so!) You do have a special presence and an obvious acting and creative -artistic talent . Get yourself a good agent and aim for where your destiny really lies :the screen and stage .We`re waiting and we`re wanting you to start acting and singing in movies and on the stage .Bring that energy, pleasure and joy which Fortune has gifted to you, and instil it in the hearts of others.Good luck with AI but your more than that,really.

mike

She is by far the most overrated singer on AI ever. She can´t sing low and mid tones without sounding like she is having a cupcake in her mouth. All she can do is scream, but unfortunately for her she can´t control it, so it gets very annoying. She really needs to go now, and find another job.

i listened to clay aiken,no doubt gwen stefani,and chris daugherty on you-tube sing this song,and siobhan sounds far superior than anyone.chris daugherty sounds as good,but his version is speeded up,and played much faster.i cant understand whats going on with the critisism of her voice.i dont hear what simon,and kara is hearing.i,mean lets face it,she is different,and you are going to get different sounds and range from her voice.is she the best singer ever on idol.probably not,but she probably is the one with the most talent,looks,and uniqeness.she is different and like she has said before she id proud of that,and so should all of her fans be.

Ave

Siobhan should keep rolling because she nailed this song 100%. And I just LOVED those high notes! :D

Mimi

umm maybe the judges are playing a mind game for votes...two have to leave after all...so they have to ensure their favorites get enough votes that night...just saying...it IS television afterall...

Carly

I thought she sang the whole song beautifully. It's two different types of singing and she showed that she can do both to perfection. I don't know what on earth is wrong with the judges this season....but if this is any indication of their judging for future seasons, then I think it's either time for Idol to end or else get a panel of new judges - and make that three not four judges...why you need four people sitting there is beyond me.

Im trying to support siobhan and someone keeps erasing me??? =(.. clearly other posts have swearing on them and yet I get erased for supporting my idol...=(....I love The SIOBHAN Magnusifent!

Ashley
Ashley

The judges got it all wrong!!! She was by far the best of the night. The only one that attempted to do something different. The only one with style and the only one who wants to be a star.
Siobhan will be a star after idol. She may not win because Simon doesn't want her to and kara is now brainwashed by simon too. But talent is talent and this girl is whipping the floor with everybody. She will make it in the music business and shine. Non AI people will appreciate this crazy fun girl unlike the judges and the judges will look like fools!

If I can only use a remote control on her.... I'd go fast forward. She's like a battery operated doll:

1. looking at the cam, while sitting
2. opens her mouth, smiling...
3. showing those fangs.. smiling....
4. walks to the middle... smiling..
5. Belting...belting.. and more higher belting.... saying "guyyysss listennnn, I'm going to belt the highest note.... watch, I can do it....."
6. SCREAMING!

Ouch. The first part sounded like Olivia Newton John; the 2nd part was all over the place. Not a good performance for her; it may land her in the bottom 3 this week.

Mindy

Sound too old fashion!! Hate the screaming at the need!!!!!! Don't like her !!!!

Kid Nation

She still sounded like she got a cupcake inside her throat, breathy nasally and so on... What's up with that hair? She's young but she looks like a DRAG. Nothing spectacular with her voice and performance.... it's like "heyy listen, I can reach the high notes".. no Siobah you're boringly screamingly awful!

Daisy B

Hmmm... the first part was really boring for me. I like Siobhan's voice when she's belting (but not necessarily when she's screaming). When she sings "lighter" her voice seems really breathy or something. And this performance was SO not contemporary. I didn't care for the beginning, but liked the ending!

Siobhan gives me goosebumps and she's the only idol I watch and gives me reason to run on TV.

But why Michael, Casey and Katie get not so harsh comment like Siobhan?
Biased judges watch your words! WE are not stupid. She's probably the best!

Siobhan FTW!

i don´t know what is most scary here, Siobhan´s bad voice, or Rickey.org tone deaf readers?.

i keep imagine that siobhan have something in common with avril lavigne,,, but i dont know what it is...

First, that hair is middle-aged mom hair from the 80's, like some poor woodland creature got stuck to her scalp. I like Siobhan but this was just weird. The first part was best. Trying to hit every note you can in one song isn't artistic or good. She admits she doesn't know who she is and that's death to a commercial singer. Kara & Simon both know it. I miss the Siobhan of the Top 24.

I actually think she could benefit a lot from some singing lessons from a professional voice coach. She has a fantastic instrument but it needs some polishing for her to reach her full potential as a singer. As far as a combination of power and range she easily has the most to work with out of the contestants this season.

Lyn

And yeah, her outfit was really cool!!

Kara is obviously just jealous of Siobhan's charm, why, she's the most good-looking and sexiest of the season 9 contestants, in addition to her great singing voice..that's the reason Kara hates her and Simon, well, Simon is Simon and if ever she reaches the final 2, Simon will surely retract all the horrible things he's now saying about Siobhan just like old times hahaha.. I would like a duet from Adam & Siobhan in the future or David Cook & Siobhan..wow, that would be a blast! And about Crystal, she really sounds the same week after week and her voice was croaky tonight, wonder why the judges didn't notice.

AlexTheSoccerGal

I love Siobhan and I loved this performance! I really did like the second half better because she had those strong beautiful vocals but I still loved the first half too! Oh and not to mention the shoes!! Love them!

The judges need to lay off Siobhan. She has been performing amazingly and I don't know what the hell they're thinking. I don't know about you but it's complete TORTURE looking at Siobhan when the judges say this unrealistic stuff about her!! She makes that sad kind of blank face and I HATE it! I love to see her smile!!

Elle

Fantastic performance. I think she was great. Kara and Simon need to gtfo the panel. They are ridiculous.
She was wonderful tonight.

Chris

The last 2/3 of this performance is probably the best of the season. She is amazing. I don't know what the hell Kara was talking about.

The judges were complete dicks to Siobhan but i have to say she could have done so much more with the song. As far as not hitting the notes she was going for? Thats just crazy talk. She was trying not to do the scream on purpose so she wouldnt get bitched at for that, but the judges were still dicks to her. This girl can not catch a break.

Watching it for the second time, I've upped my opinion on the performance. I thought it was so so watching the first time. Now, I think that it was much better than that, and actually quite good.

There were some nuances to her performance, that weren't apparent the first time. And, the song had 3 tempo changes....which was a bit hard to take in the first time.

Hearing it again....it made much more sense. I liked it. It was certainly more daring than what most of the others attempted.

Zach

She used to be my favorite, but I feel like she's lost her mojo. Definitely one of the best performances tonight, and she should be safe. But can she win on a performance like this? No. She needs to reclaim whatever she had at the end of "Paint It Black" (i.e. AFTER the screech, though it worked that time).

She's very good when she belts out or sings in her upper register. But she always sounds awkward on the bridges because she's singing too low.

Considering the comments and votes from the fans, she will definately wins American Idol. And judges please don't confuse the girl with your comments and Siobhan dear, always believe in yourself gir!

AlexTheSoccerGal

YEAH SIOBHAN!!! I loved this performance. Oh and what a surprise! Kara is confused again! I loved it, it was awesome!! She has mad vocals and I thought it was awesome how she described how she doesn't exactly know what she is but she knows she loves to sing! I LOVE Siobhan!! Much love <3 <3 <3!! Come on lets VOTE VOTE VOTE for Siobhan!! We need to give her another chance! Not that I thought it was bad, its just people will listen to anything the judges say so she should show them how wrong they are!! Don't let Siobhan leave too soon!! VOTE FOR SIOBHAN!!!

I don't get the judges. They are wacked. One week they tell her screaming and high notes are her thing, the next week they tell her not to do it and tone it down. One week they applause and the next week they don't. They tell all the contestants to mix things up but Siobhan does that every single week and she get's crap for it.
I loved her version of the song. I love her style and I love how she basically told the judges they can f off in a classy sweet way because she is going to do things her way. She is a force to be reckened with in my opinion. And all you haters out there can leave your comments somewhere else.
Or would you like all of us Siobhan fans to start leaving hateful comments on the contestants you love and support?

OMG.. what's with simon... he clearly showed favoritism/biased on this show...
he really getting on my nerves...
and to KARA... we all get confused too, about your criticism what the hell with you??
GO SIobhan.... she is really SMART...
we will support you all the way...

Yeah I agree with that in the sense that people won't feel like they need to vote for people who the judges praised a lot but then again if the judges keep getting it wrong with Siobhan, people are going to believe the judges and think she's not good enough. People will believe anything the judges say

Kid Nation

No she can't win. She still sounding like there's a cupcake stuck on her throat!

I see, you are referring to another person -" Shioban "- not S I O B H A N Magnus, the AI9 contestant. Are you lost?
