My heart breaks for the ones that get voted off so close to the end. But all know its a possibilty when its crunch time. They are all very worthy in my opinion.

Jessica or Phillip should have gone. Skylar is great. Hope she will continue her career – she definitely helped grow a country rock audience. Not only Joshua is bringing back a genre.

Well here we go again. This IS a singing competition. You would suspect that the person with the better voice (range, control and stage presence) would win. However, having said that I think back to previous seasons. The winners for any given season have not done well. It seems that the runner-up usually has a longer career than the winner.
Given the tone deafness of the average american they usually vote for who they like rather than whom is the better vocalist.
My guess (for what it is worth)…Hollie will go home next week, then Jessica and Phil will probably win although he is the least talented of the remaining 4.

I think Elise Testone, Colton Dixon and Jessica Sanchez deserve to be in the final because they can sing variety of songs and nice to listen on Radio. I dont understand why Joshua is still there. He is a good singer but very shouty and he does not sound nice on radio or CD…ur guys tried and listen to it if u dont believe me. Philip Philips sound better in CD though…well this is just an opinion…

I am not surprised at last nights events. Joshua will probably win with Jennifer second. Love Hollie and she may be a factor, but Phillip seems immature and downright silly most of the time–he is my least favorite–I thought he would go last night. I just can’t see anyone in the top two except Josh & Jen–they both seem to sing the most powerful songs when it counts the most–rising to the occasion.

How can you judge contestants like Phillip when you can’t even get all the contestant names’ right? It’s Jessica; not Jennifer. Shows how much you know.

Ugh! All dis comments make me sick. Yo peeps, these contestants didn’t ever say they was perfect; they all have their strengths & weaknesses, now don’t go using it against em, its all wrong. The most shocking elimination for me still remains Colton Dixon, I literally cried(he is so good). Whoever wins does not win because he deserved it, but because he or she was preferred.

Skylar does not have a general appeal for many people who like music – her enuciation is frequently poor and her voice is often shrill. Yes she has a lot of good energy but as a vocalist she lacks a great deal. I’m much happier with the remaining fouir.

Also to Burikat what does it matter if Joshua is gay or not? How does that affect your miserable life! I am quite sure that you think that the President looks like a monkey too!! It is people like you who are ignorant and can get their jollies by posting hate speech exemplify the plethora of ignorance in this country. Perhaps you should look inside yourself and wonder why you have to put people down by your ideas of what they look like or your supposed idea that Joshuais gay. Your tedious opinions are outdated and pehaps you should read more and blog less!!

OMG Skylar?????? I love all of them, but I think Hollie should have went home. She’s amazing but compared to the other four, I think she’s the weakest. But I still love her.
I can’t believe Skylar is gone!!!!!!
And can you please stop hating on Jessica???? You say she shouldn’t be on American Idol cause she’s Filipina. Well guess what? She’s Filipina-Mexican-AMERICAN. So please stop hating her because of that. I think it’s just stupid to hate someone just because their in American Idol and they’re Métis. And like I said, even though she’s half Filipina and only one fourth Mexican and American doesn’t mean you can go off hating her. I mean, you don’t even know her!

Stop racism. Its just because Jessica was an asian she doesnt deserve to be an american Idol. Be fair. She’s a good singer, a very soulful singer well yah I guess you dont understand cause youre not a singer :P And besides she does have a wide and high range of voice , Its not yelling ;P Joshua Ledet is does it :p He yells , screams arggghh >.< But anyways hes fine. :)

Lets stop the hating… Ive heard lots of hate comments from racism (that jessica is a fili… Oh common)!

Lets just face it, this five singers is SO SO GOOD! That when once is eliminated, it would be shocking! You put any of these five on any season, they’d surely win the season. As i was saying this season its so hard to choose from the best ever singers

It wasn’t shocking at all. Skylar was voted off for a reason. Every time she sings, I had to turn down the volume of the TV. she ‘s always yelling! the top four deserved their spots :)

Oh my! Ok I knew america would not let another country singer win, but I don’t feel skylar should of went home. Hollie has ben doing well these last few weeks, and has recently got a standing oviation. I do feel that phillip phillips has been lacking a lot lately he should of been at the bottom 2night, also jessica well she did an awesome job on her 2nd song the first one was horrible and yes her dress was way too tight and short for a 16 year old girl! She looked like a teen slut! Just my opinion.

Phillip is just so painfully boring and painful to watch, he way out of his league and doesn’t have half the voice of the remaining singers. Josh & Hollie are clear leaders.

Jessica should go home. This is a singing competition, not yelling competition. Also, she should go be an actress instead because she is so fake. She act as if she is so touched whenever judges gave her the compliments and acted so sad when someone is going home.

If she ever is faking the emotion, that’s because she’s in the business of pleasing the majority; i’m 1000% sure you’d do the same given the same circumstance.. Wake up!

@ Eden–So you’re saying she should not win since she’s Filipino-Mexican even if she was born and raised here and is an American citizen? So In your opinion only Caucasians or african americans have the right to win American idol. You are quite pitiful to have this kind of thinking at this day and age. By the way, if you want to hear screaming, listen to Holly and Skylar. If you don’t have a clue about music or singing just shut up.

You can tell by the facial expression itself that she’s sincere…

Jessica is simply screaming her way through the songs. Kind of irritating listening her screaming and yelling all the time. Oh and by the way, this is ‘American’ Idol, not Fili…. Idol. So I hope Americans will vote wisely for someone who truly deserve the title.

Sweetie, please define the following for us: “American”. “Screaming”. “All the time”. Who can be more American than the people who go in harm’s way to fight for flag and country? That’s JESSICA’s father, and also her grandfather! How about you? What can you say for yourself? Again, did she “scream” in “You Are So Beautiful”, for one? Suggest you get your facts straight before you hit anyone. It just shows your bias. I feel sorry for you!
