OT - American Idol
Hi all,

Just watched the show a little later than in the US - the advantage is no commercials.

Anyway, aren't the girls much better than the boys this season?

And how do you guys watch it with a commercial break after almost every song? You probably get a lot of knitting done, right?

I like a couple of the guys and a few of the girls.

I also record it because the family usually watches something else at that time. I love ff'ing through commercials (and the goodbye singing of the kicked-off contestants).

I like Chris Sligh. I sorta like Blake and Sundance.

I reeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaally want Melinda to win.

why haven't Antonella's offscreen antics gotten her kicked off the show?

edit: because I seem to really like overusing the word 'haven't'

Jodi - Melinda is my favorite as well.

Did anybody else notice Kelly Pickler's new "enhancements" - well they were kind of hard not to notice.

I thought KP had "enhancements" but my dh thought she was that way before. what do I know ----but maybe the ? should be what does dh know?

And I do think the girls are kicking butt more than the boys so far.

I agree with everyone, I want Doolot to win (that's what I call Melinda. Since her last name is "Doolittle" but she sings really well, so I call her Doolot )

I think that is my pick too unless Blake isn't the beat boxer I haven't learned their names yet.. I like Melinda and Latisha? is that her name

I heard they were investigating it and that some maybe fake..

My dh didn't even hear KP's song lol he was to busy looking.. I thought she had them before too but he disagreed

Regardless of KP's new "look," I think she looked fabulous. She looked so much more polished and confident. She reminded me of Lori Morgan or Clint Black's wife -- just the way she looked. She also sounded really great. I LOVED the song!
