Fuck that. I'm sick of these fucking judges.

She just fucking blew that shit out of the water. They give a standing ovation to Heejun, but they criticize Hollie? Did they not hear what she did with the last 20 seconds of that song? She sang that final chorus with as much strength and emotion as Carrie ever has. And trust me, I know.

Whatever.

I might start muting this show whenever the judges come on to do their "job."

I've been watching this show for 11 years (yes, I'm fully aware of how sad that is), so why am I still getting angry when the judges show their stupidity? They've always been stupid.

Good lord. I'm done for the night. Sorry.

Hehe, good night for you, huh ?

She DID look quite lovely, yes. And I thought she did a nice enough job on the song.

Some very...unusual song choices tonight! One thing I'd like to request: Can Joshua Ledet please stop shrieking at me? Yes, he's got a good voice, but there's powerful and dramatic type of loud, and then there's just shrieking. And he often seems to do the latter.

Also, it still is really weird to hear people do a Led Zeppelin song on "Idol".

West Coast here. So far so good. I loved the Fleetwood Mac/ Stevie Nicks medley. Colton should have picked a better song. I loved Skyler's song. It was a perfect choice for her. Deandre picked a perfect song.vJessica sounds great on this Beyonce song.

Wow. loved Philip squared. And Jimmy Iovine is right, he looks a bit like Lindsey Buckinham, without the fro.

And now some Zeppelin. I loved her take.

I thought Colton's performance was all right. Not "wow" but nice.

I did like Elise doing "Whole Lotta Love", yeah. And I liked Jessica's take on "Sweet Dreams", too.

Missed your rants on this earlier. I have to say I agree with you on the judges. Yeah, I know, it's 11 seasons in and we should be used to that, but seriously, some nights I do think they aren't hearing the same things I'm hearing, and some nights I just really want someone to get a good criticism.

I don't know, GAF, I agreed with Randy that her vocals in the lower range were funky, and I agreed with Jimmy that her performance showed her lack of experience. She did blow the last verse out the water, I agree. She is hugely talented but she's no Carrie Underwood, though she could become one in a few years. I just don't think she's ready.

And I thought Heejun was stunning. I was literally gasping outloud during the performance. I love that song and I love his voice. I knew he'd go anyway, but he went out on a high note.

Everybody was so good this week. They picked the right songs, they sang them amazingly, it was one of the best shows I've seen.

That said, I don't particularly care for Colton's voice. To me he screams and screeches though not as much this week as last.

Elise was great. But I still can't stand her. That comment she made in the mansion "Why does Deanndre get the biggest room?" says it all. She said it like she was actually jealous, not like poking fun at him in a good-natured way. I think she literally thinks she is the best and most deserving of the biggest room.

Apparently, next week is '80s week. With Jimmy Iovine involved, I'd bet money that we will get some U2. Most likely candidate is Colton, since he loves Jesus rock.

And they just announced Gwen Stefani and Tony Kanal will be mentoring. I'm entirely too excited about this.

Annoyed to see Deandre still in the race. He's just another example of a pretty-boy winning out against some real talent, like Erica Van Pelt. I think the AI voters are all teenage girls and vote accordingly. They should raise the age of callers (if they could) to 18. Maybe then the results wouldn't be so skewed.

Yet I keep watching, *sigh*.

Should I start watching (while fast-forwarding through the judges' crap)? I caught a minute or so of Jessica, and she knocked my socks off.

Yeah. This group is actually pretty good.
