Tonight was really interesting. I'm totally over Dilana now. I loved her so much at the begining, but now I don't care so much. Magni was good, but I was hoping for a little more energy. I did not like Lukas's Prayer, but his original was all right.

Toby and Storm kicked some serious ass tonight. I LOVED their covers, and their originals were sweet. Toby definitely has a shot at winning it after tonight. I'm definitely downloading the original. It was so catchy and energetic. Plus, he's not bad to look at either!

With the announcement that the House Band will be on tour with SN, and the fact that Toby and Storm are kicking so much ass, I'm actually thinking about checking the show out when they come to Vancouver in February.

She really did. I wonder if any of it was due to being drugged up, though. Torn muscles are incredibly painful.

I can see Toby taking it. He's always been a big pile of meh to me, just another generic bar singer with a very limited vocal range who happens to look good to many of the fangirlies (yours truly excepted) and has learned in recent weeks to interact with the audience well. His going out into the audience for nearly every song these days is tiresome. Like my daughter said tonight, if he wins, the band's gonna need to incorporate about three or four ellipses into their stage to give him adequate room to express his ADHD.

I've been starting to think in recent weeks that Lukas is too edgy for the ol' boys. He needs a good, young, modern rock band to front.

Storm, again, too good for the Super-sucksters. Her original rawked mah world tonight.

Magni's the best of the males, and has been through the entire show, but some of his performances lack that certain it factor.

Blah.

Don't mind me. I'm just bitter and angry that my early fave turned out to be a psychological mess who self-destructed.

I may have checked out Ticketmaster tonight when I heard that the House Band were opening. Only singles left for the TO show, though.

Lukas sucks, that is all I wanted to say. The fact that in the onset of votes he was #2 makes me think America is wacky. I wonder if they have their own people putting in votes

Also if you watched Jordis last year they seem to be doing the same thing to Dilana. Towards the end Jordis just seem to deflate. She was stressed and couldn't do the photo shoot, blah blah. I wonder if they needed to do this to get her fan base down so when they didn't choose her they'd still have fans.

I read other boards, and people who go to tapings post about what goes on there. For each hour long show, the tapings last 2 - 3 hours, so a considerable amount of material is cut from what we see on tv.

Burnett definitely is doing some selective editing. At a taping a week ago, Jason apparently freaked out about the editing, talking about how unfair it is sometimes, and I believe he was speaking in the context of the Dilana situation. That said, if she'd STFU and move on about it, she wouldn't provide them with fodder to use, no matter how badly it's taken out of context. Also, the comments from last night about Dilana's performance sounded like they were much more complimentary than we saw on tv.

According to people who were there, there was a break between Dilana's cover and her original, when tech guys had to fix some lighting issues. She engaged in some banter with the audience, and then asked "what should we do now?" Storm yelled to her that she should sing. She then went through a complete acapella version of Janis Joplin's Mercedes Benz. Sounds like the audience was mesmirized, cheering wildly, and singing along with her.

So yeah, the editing pretty much sucks.

Spoilers are in...

Only thing that I will say is that every rocker sings again tonight, and I'm so glad the carpal tunnel I got from voting last night was not in vain!

I was wondering whether Toby would acknowledge Steve Irwin's death. It was really nice to hear what he said.

As well he should be! I must've voted about 100 times for him last night, and I never vote for anybody more than 10 times on these things...

I have to admit Dilana had a good performance tonight but I'm sad to see Storm go

I've watched every show and I don't get where Dilana "dissed the fans". Sure she f'd up by "dissing her fellow contestants" in the interviews (probably a set up to knock her back down to earth) since she was getting too cocky/over confident prior to that but I do vividly recall last year that JD "dissed his fellow contestants" and was "cocky/ over confident" and lazy when it was time to rehearse a song with INXS in the studio but we all know who won last year. So ya never know. IMO she's the only one that has a unique rock voice compared to the rest. Guess we'll all find out together next week.
