He really deserved to be saved. His recent performances have shown that. He sung ‘It’s Time” really well.

Now eat your words! Those who are hating Sam….mind ya God is watching. This dude got the talent and hed deserved to be saved 2 weeks ago. Well, what is the mentor doing anyway if Sam cant connect? With David, he did it… The Dawg should be replaced tho….so obvious he got his bet, as usual! And this writer… So where is your dexter now? Be fair in reviewing honeygal!

I am very very unhappy that Sam got the save last week. What were the judges thinking? So now, when a contestant that deserves to be there gets put on the chopping block. They are done. This is ridiculous and I am really disappointed in the judges.

He deserves it. He did well that night…. CJ did not. The judges maybe were thinking there was even worse than Sam so why he has to suffer it all? And besides with his acoustic time after time…. He did proved he deserves it! So does CJ did well… Those in top like Jena didnt do well really, Jessica wasnt stellar either… Meaning it’s anybody’s game…so never judge a constestant as if he cant do anything good anymore!

Hey guys, don’t anyone of you realize what the judges did?
They relieved themselves of the pressure of having to use the save at all, being a “super jury” with all eyes on them.

Anyone can agree on Sam’s performance level in comparison to other singers, no matter how good his voice ever might be. But by using the save on him they used their “control” on the competition at a point where it won’t really affect the ending, and still in a situation when it was rather easy to back it up given Sam’s potential as a singer.

Move on hater! He will not be accepted in Berklee if he has the voice. If this guy would go up not ad u expected… Oh well… Ul gonna eat your words! Sam may make history on AI… Each artist have their style and maybe your style is too loud that u dont like his style so shut up and respect an artist on his own way and MOVE ON! Stop hating!

I completely agree with your Sam Woolf comments; nice guy, talented, bood tonal quality, YET NOT as developed or experienced as many other contestants. He needs to ‘earn his stripes’ – I honestly believe the American Idol producers want to ‘mold’ him, he’s so green and I bet his grandparents are so desperate to have him ‘make it’ they’ll sign any contract – AI wants a naive (*sucker*) kid, that little girls want to look at. I think the music industry wants another ‘Donnie Osmond’ now that Justin Bieber has blown it. This show is a farse, the contract the contestants sign say the producers can override public votes for ANY reason. Did the producers MAKE the judges save Sam? I bet they picked Sam out from the beginning & will do whatever they can to get Sam further – even if we prefer others over him. Why bother having the public vote is they are just going to have the producers decide who they want? Sam is no way near as talented as others and now there is no ‘saves’ left – I think its a farse and will always watch The Voice over American Idol

So mean! Sam wont be accepted in berklee if he doesnt have the voice. He needs to connect but the vocals are there as David cook puts it ” thats money “… Dont be so judgmental! It wont do u any good hating people who wants to make their dreams come true. And even the grandparents are brought here? Not fair. I salute them how they brought up Sam… He accepted with humility when he was announced to be eliminated, no negative stuff was seen on him just like what Majesty Rose did last time. So now he has proven he deserves to be in the competition. And that night, his lego house wasnt the worst it was Cj’s out of tune performance, that maybe one of the reasons why he was save aside from his good vocals as Keith mentioned.

They saved him because his records sell better than most the other contestants. Sam and Alex are always the top 2 selling contestants on iTunes after the show. The judges aren’t stupid! No, Sam’s not “Mr. Scream Emotionally and Flail Around to Stir a Crowd,” but his voice sounds smooth as silk on recordings — and those recordings sell.

Honestly, Sam being voted off is the natural selection of the weeding as it should have been. I like the kid, but he’s not on the same level as the other contestants, with the exception of maybe CJ, but even he’s in a different league. Same with MK, but the judges came the closest to saving her before deciding not to. It is complete BS that they saved Sam and almost saved MK, but didn’t save Ben Briley. He was easily top 3 for this season. Should have just cut everyone except for Dexter, Caleb, Alex, Jena and Ben and started the show from there.

They only had next week left to use the “save” so why not? (have to use it by final 6) Sam’s got a great voice, his only problem is.. is that he is so shy that he basically freezes out there. Once he gets rid of that “deer caught in headlights” look and loosens up he’ll be great. Hopefully that will be this week.

I don’t know about the ‘clock’ put on the judges to use their save — did they say that? If they did, seems more folks would be a teeny tiny bit more understanding — IF it’s true that they only had a couple more weeks left. But I’d STILL say Sam doesn’t have the talent or star quality that others do. Example: Malaya has supposedly had a difficult time getting enough votes to stay out of the bottom group, but she has 10x’s the musical talent and personality that Sam does. If the judges felt that had to ‘use it or lose it’ they would have been MUCH wiser to wait & use it for Malaya, since ‘statistically’ she’s more likely to be on the bottom again. IMO her only faults are controlling some extra goofiness and teeth braces – BOTH are temporary. I think the producers want Sam’s ‘story’ out there, because lots of kids relate to having to be raised by grandparents due to bio-parents divorce, addiction, etc. – so with Sam’s looks and ‘story’ I think the producers are hoping to cash in on that – even if his talent is not as great as many other contestants.

Worst move I have ever seen. What if a bunch of people vote for Sam next week and Caleb or one of the better singers end up in the lower three. The judges can’t save them. So JLo is in love with Sam, but I just took a poll that showed 60% of the people that watch Idol think it was a bad move. That’s why Idol can’t stand up to the Voice. Connif, JLo and Keith against the judges and coaches on Voice? Be real. The best singers on Idol couldn’t make it on the Voice.

Well… They all know there is no more save, then they better all show their best. So last night? Who did? When in fact CJ and Sam did come back… It’s anybody’s game….it’s always Sam and Alex songs making in itunes chart.
