dammit if i had it my way I wouldn't vote anyone off...
I was very sad to see Kimberley go...in fact I cried...
It's funny how she was let go....she sang better than or should I say more solidly than Clay or Rueben.
Clay's 1st song that night was terrible...and Rueben sounded winded on his 1st song too. Kimberley on the other hand was immaculate on all songs.
I'm going for Clay, though. Now that Kim's out...I'm going for Clay.
Sometimes I feel that Reuben can sometimes fuck up and it goes unnoticed. And that pisses me right the fook off.
Clay is more of a perfectionist...and therefore should win.

He's by far the most talented.





I have only seen two episodes and then spent an hour voting for Clay.

I have also noticed that they seem less critical of Ruben when he goofs than anyone else. He's sung a few bad notes here and there and they just praise him. If anyone else did that, you'd hear someone comment on it. Oh, well.

I agree. I thought his rendition of the Peabo Bryson song was pretty subpar. My husband and I were shocked that he received nothing but praise, considering he was really straining for some of those notes. For this week's show, Clay's first song may have been uninspired with some forgotten words, but at least when Clay hits the notes, he hits them. I have yet to see a performance of his where the singing itself is not top notch. Twice now, Clay has been told that his performance was the best ever in any of the seasons (once by Simon for To Love Somebody and once by Paula for I believe it was Mack the Knife). If we're going on talent, I think Clay has been the most consistent, even if this week he stumbled on that first song.

Clay is a great singer.

But my parents have said this before, and sometimes I tend to agree-Clay's from a theatrical background, and so sometimes he tends to overdo songs, he tends to get way too theatrical with them when he should just sing them straight out. He'd be excellent on Broadway.

He's still a great singer, though-seems like a really nice guy, and if he wins next week I won't be upset.

I really don't have a preference. I don't care who wins-I like both Clay and Ruben.

Oh man. When they said, "Here's Clay singing Bridge Over Troubled Water" I freaked! I love that song, and I think it was the perfect song for him. And that final note! What a way to end the competition!

Clay

I tried off and on tonight to call and vote for Clay but could never get through. I hope that's a good sign!

*waits in suspense for the results*

I could not get through either, so maybe that's a good sign.
