    I actually watched this season... was totally a big fan of James Durbin. Dumb Dumb Dumb... He was the best I'd seen in 10 years personally. Not watching this show ever again. Personally, think it's fixed.

    I think they should give cash payments to anyone who watches that show.

    He's lucky, it seems the people who lose that show recently are more successful than the ones who win it.

    Wait, they voted off James the rocker guy? Leaving Scotty and the two terrible chicks? Casey (the beareded guy) was fun, but they shouldn't have used the save that early in the season and waited for Pia a few weeks ago or James today.

    To be fair, the best contestants are quite often voted off early and have the better careers. Guess I can tune out for the rest of the season, hopefully Scotty wins it. Despite being a country singer (I despise the genre) he is pretty good.

    I think a mechanical hand should come out of the TV and ***** slap anyone who watches this glorified karaoke night of a show for anything other than to see the auditions and laugh at the fools.

    yeah... sorry if it came as a surprise to you... I should have used the spoiler tag but I figured everyone (who is interested) will find out by just going to their home page on the internets.

    I can get why millions watch the show P13, people desperate and hungry to make it, the audience participates, etc.

    For me, I was never comfortable watching these eager people just dying out on stage, my first thought is "how embarrassing for them".

    For me idol is like 2 hours of watching people embarrass themselves that is one of the reasons why I pass on watching it.

    I don't normally watch... got hooked in by watching Durbin, you'd like him Pagan. He was the first to truely bring heavy metal to the show. He sang Judas Priest during the first live show.

    I actually went out and got the Muse track after hearing him sing it for the first time...

    No worries Paul, if I didn't care to know the title would have kept me out. I don't really care who wins, I am just always surprised when someone clearly head and shoulders above the rest get voted off. Durbin definitely got some Daughtry parallels going on here. Hope he makes it, I enjoyed his Muse rendition.

    Thought Hailey absolutely kicked *** tonight... which means she'll be going home. The little kids want Scotty and Lauren to win... Hailey doesn't appeal to the little kiddies...
