Here's DialIdol's take: DialIdol.com - Measuring the busy signal.

I didn't really like any of the guys last night. I thought they were way too hard on ... uh ... the gentleman of Asian descent whose name I can't remember and who sang God Bless the Child. I liked his low range and thought he was good.

There were a few that were just awful, and the judges rightly called them on it. Both of them had awful hair, I remember that much.

And the 70s guy creeps me out in a bad way - he looks like a serial killer.

Casey was good, but HOLY GOD they need to drop that "Kara loves Casey" schtick. It was kind of cute at the last Hollywood show (the leg-lift hug! ) but now it's just irritating and a little creepy. Poor Casey.

I agree-no question in my mind that the guy is quite hot..but enough already. Time to focus on his singing. I kept thinking if it was Simon or Randy and a female contestant and how that would be perceived. Of course Simon has had looks (that the camera obviously focuses on) and comments about female contestants-and remember last season when they zoomed in on that woman's butt, the one who was auditioning? Not necessary-but they are up against the Olympics this time so I guess it's time to pull out all the stops.

I don't mind anyone who's gone except Tyler. I genuinely liked his voice and his personality. Allison and Kris both performed. Allison is amazing. Her voice blows me away every time, and I actually really liked the song she sang. She's just genuine. And I actually liked Kris' version of "Let It Be". He's grown on me since the competition, but I think that's because I'm such a fan of his bromance with Adam. Kradam 4E

Do we need spoilers now that it's done on the west coast?

I was shocked with the men - not so much who went home, but who didn't go home. Alex and Tim should be thanking their lucky stars - they were both just awful. I thought Tim was going to vomit out of shock when he found out he was staying.

Not going to miss Serial Killer Tyler.

I didn't like the song Alison sang tonight, but it's a goddamn shame this wasn't a huge hit:

I totally agree. I don't understand how her album isn't selling. The songs are catchy, she's adorable and actually can sing.

Oh and I do believe American tweens are tone deaf. This might explain the appeal of Taylor Swift. The only reason Urban didn't get voted off is because the younger set think he's cute.

At this point I'm not really invested in anyone much, but I'd have been curious to see if Tyler Grady could update things a bit because he has a decent voice, not as good as Cook, but still.

Wow, I'm surprised that Ashley Rodriguez got the boot. I didn't like her much at all, but I actually thought she was ticketed for the Top 12. Shame about Janell, but she wasn't going to last very long anyway.

I missed the guys show the other night, so I can't comment on that really. But Tyler is the dude who looks like (and totally wants to be) the lead singer of the Hives? Yeah, not too mad about him leaving. And I have no clue who Joe Munoz is.

And I just watched that "Friday I'll Be Over You" video, and I think I really liked the song. Had never checked it out before for some reason. Good for Allison.

That's the best song on the album by a loooong shot, but that one song is so good, I bought the album anyway.

Alright, holy shit, I'm finally watching the guys episode from this week right now. Tim Urban, my brother, why the fuck would you pick a song with a recurring falsetto note that you can't even come close to hitting? Yowza. That's gotta be one of the worst Top 24 performances in Idol history.

Also, like Sicy and others said, the Lee Dewyze dude that Simon complimented was wayyyy pitchy, dawg.

I don't like Big Mike.

Casey had one of the better performances of the night.

I like Todrick, and I liked a few things about his little Since U Been Done redux, but the whole wasn't greater than the sum of its parts. It ended up being a bit of a mess.

They gave Andrew Garcia (star of The Untouchables and Godfather Part III) too much of a hard time. I actually thought his little acoustic Fall Out Boy song was pretty cool, all things considered. He's probably the most talented of the boys.

The girls are better than the boys, I think, overall. If only because none of the girls are as bad as Tim Urban or were as off key as Lee Dewyze.

Did you see Tim Urban's face when Joe got the boot? He was shocked, as he should be

This season seems to be full of meh.

Gird your loins people. American Idol has had to switch the order of performances so the boys go tonight and the girls tomorrow. Word on the street is one of the girls is sick.

Link.

I wonder how this will affect some of the more fragile contestants *cough* Alex Lambert *cough*.

ETA: Crap, according to Michael Slezak at EW the contestant with the medical issue is Crystal Bowersox. Seriously, if she can't perform Wednesday I'm done with this season.

Just watched Michael. Liked it!
Hope Crystal is alright! I wonder if they would have switched nights if it were another contestant
