This talentless hack can't stay in tune, has no upper register, can't hold a note and is not a war hero! He's not been in any war! He is nothing. Your tax dollars are paying for his vacation, for God's sake.

Josh owes his entire AI run to Saddam Hussein.

In other news, am I the only one getting a hot and bothered vibe from Kim and Clay? What up with that?
@ anitram! Oh fuck...you just made me howl out loud!
About the Kim and Clay thang...yes..I noticed too! Imagine if those 2 had kids? Look out! Ain't noone gonna stand a chance against their future children in singing competitions!!!
Josh soooooo needs to go!! What the hell happened tonight? It was borderline ridiculous!!! I agree with Char saying that Josh has been crap for 4 weeks and counting!! I mean, c'mon He should have definitely went tonight. Hopefully, voters will come to their freakin senses next week...because the results tonight were a heaping pile of fookin crap.

I wouldn't put it past Fox to put Ruben in the bottom two to simply stir shit and grab ratings. Look at how everyone is now talking about American Idol? Trenyce obviously had the least amount of votes... but who's to say the other 'bottom' people are really legitimately at the bottom? I don't trust TV.

That being said Ruben better win. You guys aren't doing your part! I can't vote here in Canada!

Josh didn't get voted off last night? I just told my husband what you guys were saying (we watched a different show last night), and we are both in shock!

And even more bizarre than Josh not getting voted off is that Reuben would be in the bottom two! WTF?

Strange things are afoot at the Circle K...

*considers actually calling to vote next week*

How dare they put my man Ruben in the bottom two!!!! Josh should have been there, and he should have gone home!!! I think he knew it too, did you see him with his face in his hands. With that said he better get kicked off next week, because if Ruben is in the bottom again, there is gonna be some serious hell to pay!!

No kidding. Dad and I always watch the show, but we've never voted. We're considering it now. The final two should come down to Ruben and Clay...they deserve to be in the top two spots.

If FOX did what has been suggested and put Ruben in the bottom two to stir things up, well...congratulations to them because it worked.

Amen!

Last night's results just pissed me off big time. Trenyce kicked some MAJOR arse on Tuesday night, especially on "Proud Mary" (if I didn't know better, I'd swear Tina Turner had invaded her body), and what does she get for such a performance?

She gets kicked off.

.

That is just SO wrong on so many levels.

Josh sucked Tuesday night (like he has been for the past few weeks-he keeps getting worse and worse each week!). He should have gone home last night. Enough with the patriotism vote already, people. Argh.

Sorry, Trenyce, you deserved better than that-she should still be up there.

It's okay I wouldn't mind if Kimberly won...I hope it is either Ruben or Kimberly...i'm holding out for Ruben though...lol. I don't really like Clay as I think he is better suited for musicals, but I have this feeling he may go all the way

I don't think it's necessarily the military thing. I heard this morning on the news that they might be looking into "voting irregularities". I think they should do this before a travesty like that happens again.

Didn't Carmen have a web site where you could vote for her? There must be a way to vote numerous times via computer. Maybe people associated w/ Josh have the same thing set up, who knows? The way he buried his head in his hands, you knew that HE knew he should have been in Ruben's place. And the way Ruben handled it, he is a CLASS ACT

I voted for Ruben last week, and I hope he and Kimberley are the two finalists. I wouldn't know who to choose in that case.

Here's the thing about voting irregularities:

Last year, a bunch of computer guys set up powervoters to vote for Nikki McKibbin. They'd log in like 10,000 votes/phone line/night, which was incredible.

American Idol actually has a clause re: voting irregularities. It states that the producers have the right to remove any votes which they deem to be suspect. This also actually allows them a legal loophole to screw around with the results, because there is no independent auditing done.

Carmen had an autodialer. This is actually not considered cheating because you can log the same amount if not more votes manually. All that was is setting up your modem to dial for you instead of your phone, and I believe theirs was set up with 11 second intervals in between calls, logging some 700 calls in 2 hours. This is pretty much no different than using a standard phone line, but it allowed people to have their computer dialling away while they dialed on their home and cell phones.

Bono on Idol?

So I am watching Idol and I catch a glimpse of this freakishly familar face. It appears to be . . . Bono?! on American Idol?! Nnnnoooooo.

So behind Randy Jackson is this man who generally resembles Bono but it was enough to freak me out and to look for him the next judge go around.

Anyone else agree?

Maybe it was the glasses?! The hair was longer than I knew it had been of late and the features a little sharper - but of course this was on second look. As I said - the first pass was a double take.

Wow, am I the first to comment on tonight's show? Clay was AWESOME. That first song he did gave me the total chills. Although Josh was definitely much better, his best can't even touch Clay...he is just leagues up there. Of course his second song couldn't come close to what he accomplished with the first one, but I thought it was fun seing him attempt to wiggle his hips. Very cute.

But Ruben! He was sublime in both songs! I am sooooo impressed.
