I didn’t care for Scotty’s live performance of his new single tonight… seems like something was missing? So, I went to iTunes and downloaded the song… cost me $1.98. You all need to listen to this song, “I love you this big”, recorded by him in the studio… it is really perfect… No lie, I predict that this, his 1st single, will start climbing the country charts this week if he can get any play from the DJs out there. IT IS THAT GOOD. Sorry about the shouting BUT you need to hear the iTunes version… it will be just like hearing it on the radio. Very cool man.

Lauren is a good singing… but Haley is by FAR a wayyyy better singer!
& honestly…. ANYONE would have acted a little upset or however you think she acted when RAndy and JLO JUMPED all down her throat… You can say one thing but you don’t have to just keep dragging it on for 10 minutes….
& Lauren has the attitude alot… she is cocky

I totally agree..Haley does have a Bad attitude and the American people voted her OFF….Lauren should still be able to be in the final..Even if she cannot sing, still let the American People vote as to who they want to be the American Idol….But NOT Haley!!!!

lauren should be allowed to sing! Sux if she is not able to perform but she won the right to be there. Haley went home because America did not want her in the top 2. She has a bad aatitude and is a sore loser! Hope Lauren gets better soon!!!

How can anyone say Haley had a bad attitude?! I praise her for sticking up for herself when she was the only one really getting knocked! I also think Steven is the only one who can fairly critique her because he is a singer! One of the best I’ll remind you. J Lo and Randy couldn’t hold a candle to Haley in that department! The truth.

Haley went home for a reason. Lauren deserves the shot that she got! Hope Lauren gets well in time for the show! Not looking forward to seeing Haley back on tonight, if Lauren is unable to sing. :(
