Hey people! Come to think of it, it’s American Idol. America choose their favorite based on overall performance, personality, and more and not just the voice! Angie has it all! Her voice is so unique, maybe not as good as Candice’s as a lot may say, but it’s something that people will love to hear on their playlist. Candice’s voice is just for contests, she screams too much. And she’s so fake. Watching back Amber’s elimination, it’s clear that Candice didn’t want Kree in. Kree tried to hold her hand but she let go. Then Candice talk to Kree after a few seconds, she’s so fake! It would’ve been better if she goes because of her attitude. Don’t have anything to say about Kree. After what she did, I think it should really be a Kree-Angie finale because I can see Candice whining if she’s not named American Idol when she gets in the finale. Better to sent her home before the finale. Angie’s fans will definitely support her ’til the end! I just hope the producers won’t manipulate the results because they want Candice to win. Haven’t heard Jimmy say that Candice has what it takes to be the next AI, he just say she’s good for a week. He’s right! Angie should win.

Some people like this lady are too ridiculous for words. They remind me of the types of fools that occupy Capital Hill in DC. Of course, there is no accounting for taste, but to say that either Cree or Angie are better singers than Candice, or that she is fake is absurd, and without any credible foundation.

Have no idea where you get the idea that Candice is fake. You have quite the imagination.
She couldn’t be a better singer and I think she’s shy and humble.

It was quite predictable, but judging from their performances for this week kree should have gone hoe, her second song was karaoke! Amber will go far with the right management, she is very attractive, with nice voice, I can’t even name one of Nicki’s songs.

Nice to see others can state the obvious!

Derek Harris – 4 weeks ago
I don’t agree with the person above that says Lazaro is faking for sympathy but he is definitely the benefactor of it. Top three?! Really america?! It’s situations like this where the producers of American idol need to worry about the credibility of the show being damaged by way too many 12-15 year old girls flooding the vote lines and voting for cuteness instead of talent. Maybe some kind of tweaking of the voting format needs to be addressed although I’ll be the first to admit I can’t come up with a viable formula except putting it back in the hands of the judges and that would be punishing a lot of people who do vote strictly on talent. But something needs to be done because this has been a problem more than just this season. I’ve seen this movie before in at least 3 past seasons.

America voted well Amber is just a sore loser , get over it she she dose not know what she is singing ,she is no team player . Angie will win .,move on and for those people who play the race card,it has nothing to do with black or whites ,that is some people who have a bad complex with their own race ,I have seen this behavior from some people for years,

In case you didn’t know, this show is a COMPETITION, not a team sport. They are all in it to win for themselves. Amber is NOT a sore loser. I think that she is someone who recognized to her dismay that American Idol is a popularity contest, not a SINGING competition. Remember what happened with Jennifer Hudson. Most of the juveniles who do most of the voting wouldn’t know real talent if it peed on them.

To those who say that Blacks are wrong for stating the obvious racism of the American public need to understand that many Blacks witness better talent in small Black clubs than most of the contestants on Idol. This also goes for the marginal talents that they continue to reward for superficial, shallow reasons, having nothing to do with singing talent.

Hey stupid, how much credibility would anyone in this country. have for mentioning racism than Blacks or Hispanics? Take your head out of your rear end, and accept the truth of America’s terminal disease.

Please people, stop the comments using any references to “Black” or “racist”. Where have you been? Idol is mostly about young girls doing all the voting. Why do you suppose the cuter guys stay weeks longer than their voices deserve each year? Amber was top 2 for voice, but young girls do not like attractive girls a whole bunch. Jealous? Catty perhaps?

NOT a top two voice!! She is pitchy in most of her songs and only good when she is singing old fashioned songs! The other three are head and shoulders above her!!

You must be one of those kiddies so many have accused of dominating the votes, and thereby turning a singing contest into a popularity contest. Most of these youngsters have no idea what real talent is. After all, most of them haven’t experienced enough music to know the difference. Witness the above comment.

There was no way Amber should have went home. She was and is still THE BEST. I hate that show and will not watch it EVER again–YES they are to very RACIST. Look at the past several winners and that will tell you if you’re being honest with yourselves.

Angie is boring, so is Kree. Amber is the best of the 4, the complete deal. Harry Connick Jr did a lot of damage to all the girls’ confidence – he doesn’t know what he’s talking about. He can’t even sing. Won’t buy his records ever!!! Don’t invite him to American Idol again!!!!

I really think Amber was the very best singer and the one with the most international star quality = for some reason the American public kept her in the bottom two and so I’m not surprised that she was voted off but I will say it shows that this is for a large part a popularity contest and I really hope Amber keeps her head held high because I predict she is the one who will be an international singing star, unlike the other 3 girls. Amber really does have the most stunning voice and looks I think.

I agree — Amber is the best in every way!!! She’s the one going to make it big despite his early departure from the contest. I will surely miss Amber’s singing but will download all her songs.

What many of the people commenting here fail to realize is this is not a contest to pick the best voice. Its to pick a person who America relates to and likes. Obviously a lot of people didn’t like Amber , shes been in the bottom frequently Celebrities get popular because thy have some quality that people relate to, Amber is young and has plenty of time to develop her talent and persona, Im sure she will go far.

I am not surprised.. that year Josha went home was crazy.. American Idol will do what it always does is to get rid of the blacks.. that girl Kree (whatever) should have been gone.. There will never be another Black AI.. never.. this show needs to go away.. And to really think about it, what have the past winners done. I hear AI ties them up in a long contract, uses them and kicks them to the curb. The ones who don’t win sometimes do much better as far as a career. Go away..

I was disappointed, but not surprised Amber was eliminated this week, but I think Amber saw it coming. She certainly has nothing to be ashamed of. She is a very talented young lady. I predict a great music career for her.

Amber was the right one to go home, she started questioning her confidence these past few weeks and she really didn’t look as happy as she used to. All four women have great careers ahead of them. I think technically, Candice is the best…I can’t stand her ugly pouting when the judges aren’t falling all over themselves singing her praises. She does NOT take criticism well and she should be a little concerned seeing as she was in the bottom two last week.

Amber was probably not surprised to be sent home. After all, for some absurd reason, the idiotic audience had the 2 best Black singers in the bottom 2. Being Black, she knew Wednesday, what was coming from the lame, tasteless White audience. The same holds true for Candice…after all, she is from South Carolina, and knows that usually, Whites will vote for Whites, regardless of inferior talent.

Really stupid or ignorant people like you exist in a bubble of denial and hypocrisy, Sure, we have a Black President. Have you noticed how these Neanderthals in Congress and the rest of the country disrespects, insults and denigrates this good man? If you think racism is over in this nation, you are a damn fool.l

So misguided. White as I am, have been an Amber fan from day one, and believed all this time she would and should win. Please, please stop
The racial nonsense. Does not apply to this show or anything for that matter.
Sad to see Amber go, but believe it’s now Candace’s to win.

Being the most talented does not mean you will sell albums, just ask some of the very talented back up singers. Talent + popularity sell albums.

Amber is a far better singer that the screaming Angie…the problem is the audience who does the most voting are the younger voters 12-20 who do not appreciate true singers. Idol should only allow one vote per phone number….this would prevent these younger voters from voting 20 million times for the same contestant. In one night…then you would have a more accurate vote. Top two should have been Candice and Amber based on their singing ability…after all it is a singing contest!

Amber is my favorite singer and it was sad to see her eliminated, but I knew it was coming. I gave her all my votes every week. It should have been her and Candice in the top 2. I know she will have a fabulous career. I can’t wait to buy her music.
