I hope Bucky goes next week but unfortunately it is country week and all his country friends will vote for him.

I thought the show stunk this week. No one really stood out.

I thought everyone stunk on the last show. I would like to see Taylor Hicks or Kathryn McPhee make it. I like both of their voices. I think Taylor has already got himself a contract out of this deal. I do watch Idol, but really love watching "Nashville Star" even though I am not a big country fan. Heck, it's backed by Gibson and there are lots of nice guitars to spot on the show. These folks can sing and some play guitar along with singing.

I think it'll be Katharine McPhee, Mandisa, or Chris Daughtry.

I'll be amazed if Kellie, Chris, & Katherine aren't the final three.

Up until this week I was guessing Mandissa, Taylor, and Chris as the final three.

Mandissa is a really good singer. I was surprised to see her go.

Taylor was good tonight. He's an entertainer. Chris chose a song nobody knew but he sang it well.

Kellie really sounded good.

Bucky's past two performances have been his best. But I think his days are numbered anyway. Kellie is so cute, that's what keeps her alive on the show. She was awesome last night singing 'Bohemian Rhapsody'. Elliot was good too. Taylor has been pretty boring the past few weeks.

I think the two best are Chris Daughtry and Katherine McPhee. Katherine fits the idol and performer role 100%. I hope she wins.

Wiser,

I hope Katharine wins too but she is in the bottom three again tonight. That is the second time. I am a bit worried for her in the future. Kellie was really really good last night and was number two in the number of votes accumulated and Paris third. Ace and Bucky were dead last. I said Bucky will go in my post above but I probably should retract that and say Ace is gone.

Taylor has a huge fan base and has aquired the highest number of votes week after week. Chris was number 5 last night so he dropped a bit but only because of song choice. I think he could have been higher with a better song that people knew.

Tim: Where do you get these early results? Interesting.

I can't help wondering why Katherine has so little votes every week. She's clearly the most professional of them all. I like Taylor, too. I just think he hasn't been at his best when being told what genre style to perform. And as much as I like his personality and his singing style, I really don't know why he'd get more votes than Katherine, never mind the most. I'd like to see Ace and Bucky go. Bucky really isn't a very good singer, and Ace is just plain irritating.

Can we just get rid of Bucky and Ace tonight... I just can't see why Katherine doesn't get more votes except the people that send in the most votes for shows like Idol are young females and they tend to vote for "cute" guys and not the best singers. song choices have been poor for some of the best singers. Kellie, Taylor and Katherine would be my pick for the final 3. I would like to see them all sign the same song, which would make a boring show but prove the singing talents.

I hope Queen and Paul Rogers play tonight, and do a mind blowing rendition of 'Tie Your Mother Down', with an encore of 'All Right Now'. :dude


Wishful thinking, huh? :lol

This is just me but I think the reason Katherine is getting less votes than the other KO singers is that when she sings something hard she makes it look so easy. If you look at the others sometimes they have to push their voice to the limit and it shows. Katherine has such a wide range it is hard to find a song that most people will like and will push her voice to the limits. Most people look at this show and look for the one that is pushing the hardest. When you don’t have to push at all and can out sing everyone else people get board.

Ace does not sing with intensity. His singing is lame and lifeless but he sure likes to smile at the camera. Why is Bucky still on the show?

Katharine is certainly the most talented of all of the contestants in my opinion simply because her voice is so controlled. I agree with the poster who said young girls do most of the voting. They are all ga ga over Chris right now. I just don't see it but apparently they do.

By the way, am I the only one who thinks Katharine is a cutie?
