    Just watched it for the very time this season (can't be bothered with mostly forgettable prelims)...The performances were heartfelt, but I didn't think anyone was a standout winner (although I WAS impressed by the girl singing Led Zep)...and WHY did the show have to bring back those teenyboppers and soccer moms doing handwaves at the front of the stage? It's annoying.

    Not sure if I'll continue to watch or just check the weekly boot.

    Why is this show still running?

    How many seasons can a substantial number of people watch before their brain stops telling the lungs to breathe in an act of self-mercy?

    (this coming from a former diehard fan)

    Hey Skinny,

    I enjoy watching Smash.

    What about you? You like Smash?

    Well, for one thing it's been the #1 show on TV for 11 straight seasons. Until that changes, AMERICAN IDOL ain't going anywhere

    I was floored by Jessica Sanchez's rendition of Beyonce┬┤s "Sweet Dreams"

    I quoted the rest of my message for your convenience.

    I was asking how so many people are still interested.

    I agree, they are oversinging the songs. How'd you like that "Baby I would run to you" Nike ad? That was cool.

    Love Joshua. Great he held back and sang mature in the beginning, almost like he wrote the song. He should win. Face it. Age 19. Amazing.

    Jessica doing it now, C+ for me. Too screamy and straining.

    Gotta admit, Phillip has quite the sex appeal. Hard to take your eyes off of him. Like he is having sex with every song, and the audience.

    Holly - G for go home. Screamy, unfeeling. Good voice for Disney animation.

    You see I'm editing my scorecard post.

    I gave Hollie an F, then I see you gave her a G (funny).

    What? How many boogers are we talking about? (Commercial for the "Three Stooges")

    Colton- E. Also, punk was over before you were born. He needs to go.

    You're a tougher judge than I am, probably.

    Maybe we should be on a patio or a living room with a view.

    My top candidates:

    Joshua
    Skylar
    I'll vote for those two.

    Having seen all the competition, I would rank Elise higher than my grading shows.

    Yeah, I like Elise a lot too, but too much straining tonight. I'd give Skylar a B+, but feel she will do very well as a country singer with her unique voice. Rewatched Joshua's performance three times now.

    I think these guys do best when they hold back and feel the song, then have a passionate moment, but then bring it back down at the end. Not a big fan of screaming out the last note (unless you're singing the National Anthem).

    All in all, a very talented bunch, and I especially like the judges' commentary. I am dead on word for word with most of Jennifer's critiques.

    Round 1
    Hollie Cavanagh 83
    Skylar Laine 83
    Jessica Sanchez 80
    Phillip Phillips 75
    Joshua Ledet 60 (not feeling him, see below)

    Re: the Joshua Ledet Phillip Phillips Duet
    #idol Joshua hurt himself being difficult during a performance. U know, we can always watch #TomCruise sing the song better in Top Gun.

    For me Joshua should not have showed the audience he has a problem with Phillip. And the pushing away an embracing arm from a fellow performer is unheard of.
