That is hilarious but oh so true. I'm thinking Phil as well, his eyes are starting to creep me out - they're pretty eyes but something about them just weirds me out big time.

Who went home tonight?

Gee, who did America cut?
I hope it was the right person.
Now, we know someone has to go…
And someone is packing to go home tonight.

(Did America have yet another brain fart?)

I, for one, am rather shocked. I wouldn't even have put her in the bottom 3.

Somehow my DVR didn't tape it, I just went to watch it now. Who was bottom three? I thought this was Phil's week. I'm so bummed I missed it.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news for those of you who don't know, but Sanjaya is not going anywhere. He is the number one pick on votefortheworst.com

there are so many people who have jumped on that band wagon of throwing the whole thing that he is not going anywhere.

he is so out of his league! and i am really bummed Gina is gone. is it just me or are this year's picks really just below standard altogether? (besides the few that are really good)?

A few people aside, this year has really sucked. Particularly on the men's side. I am only really truly into 3 or 4 of the folks that are on the show at this point. (I am still about Stephanie leaving, and I still dig Chris Sligh. I hope he makes a CD.)

This is the strangest season of AI so far, IMO.

So do you think there will be another season? I think the voting process is dorked up, but I have no idea what else they should do instead.

They could limit it to a certain number of votes per household. They do that with plenty of other shows, including Dancing with the Stars. However, AI will never do it because they like to brag about their "30 million votes" (in reality, a million or less people voting a zillion times each).

I agree this season is stinking up the joint. Melinda and Lakisha are the only really good ones, IMO. (I'm not feeling the Blake/Chris love.) I was sorry to see Gina go... it's ridiculous that Sanjaya and Haley are still there!

Maybe its the producers of AI that have started this whole "vote for the worst" thing.......bc otherwise, it would be quite a boring season. No one would tune in till the last 3 weeks to see Jordan, Melinda and Lakesha. Thats the only thing interesting on the show now......to see how bad Sanjaya is and what the heck is he going to do with his hair this week! seriously.......

I just found this thread and AI is my guilty pleasure tv show! Dh watches with me every week too.
Can't believe Gina was the one that got sent home! She was NOT the worst by a long shot. Haley wore the shortest skirt possible cause Simon said she has great legs (which she does), but she kinda sucks. I think Phil has a decent voice but he icks me out. Totaly needs a hat to cover that dome. I like Blake, think he has great style and am curious to see what he puts out on his album. Melinda, Jordin and Lakesha have great voices but I don't see them as pop stars.. Melinda needs to lay off the gosh, you like me, you REALLY like me

I am absolutely floored! I cannot believe Gina was axed. This is the first time I've almost cried at AI (well, I did tear up when Kelly C. won the first one), she was just like a breath of fresh air, and I love the quality of her voice.

I canNOT believe that Sanjaya and HALEY are still there. I am convinced that Haley is only still there because of the sex kitten angle and because San Antonio is really pushing voting for her. I'm so irritated. It's never been clearer to me that it's truly not a singing competition.

Oh, and Chris R.? I don't get him at ALL. He sings right through his nose, and it bugs the living shite out of me.

you should be happy for gina. now she can go and get a really decent recording contract on her own, instead of being tied to an ai contract. she'll probably end up doing really great for herself.

I wonder if Sanjaya knows he's really a laughing stock. I'd feel sorry for the kid, if he didn't bug the snot out of me.

I really hope Gina gets a record deal out of this. It seems better to not win Americon Idol these days.

I feel sad for Sanjaya due to all the bad stuff the media is saying. I think people forget that he's just a kid who likes to sing and thought he'd try out for a big singing contest. I agree that he's out of his element, but I feel badly for him and his family. I hope they are all taking it with a big grain of salt and just enjoying what they can enjoy out of the experience.

I expect a few shockers in the voting, but from the Hollywood rounds (12 guys/12 girls) on down to last night, there have been too many bad cuts . . .

I don't think any of the harsh stuff is really sinking in. From his comments, he really doesn't seem to get that he's just not that good.

Several years ago there was that read headed kid who was doing SO badly. I felt AWFUL for him because he really very obviously knew he was in over his head. I was so relieved for him when he finally got sent home.

I don't think they are any worse than any other year, actually. I thought the year with Carrie Underwood and Bo Bice was the biggest snoozer, although I kind of liked Bo Bice. There are always bad people who go farther than they should, but they eventually get voted off. Although plenty of people believe that VoteFortheWorst won last year since they were pulling for Taylor. A lot of people liked Taylor, however.
