I am not so excited about seeing American Idol, the judges are not right all three, and the American public, this is a shame, Malaya, was the best of the female singers, and the white boys, are not that talented, one person of color left, when he is gone, i will not watch, sam cannot sing that good, why save him, it seems (just as usually, the american public and the judges want a white person to win, whether they have talent or note

I almost feel responsible for this. :( I know that’s ridiculous, but I voted for Alex Preston, because I thought he might be close to the bottom. I ALMOST gave some votes to Malaya, but I erroneously thought that she would be at the top. I usually vote just for Malaya and Alex, but this time…I sadly did not vote for Malaya, thinking she’d be a the top. My husband and I, who have lost faith in AI until this most recent season, were beside ourselves when Sam was saved. Why? I was almost sure Malaya was a ringer for the winner. I can’t believe she was in the bottom and went home!! I LOVE CJ, but Malaya is way more profound as a singer. Dexter is a great country singer, but the artistry is just not there. The girl with the pink hair? I don’t understand who she is as an artist and don’t feel her music. Malaya should NOT have gone home. I think she should have won if not gotten second (I’m still holding out for Alex Preston he he).

I was almost in tears when Malaya was leaving. SHE is themost amazing of the women on Idol this year. Hopefully there is an agent waiting to grab her and bring her attitude and positive vibe into the music venue. Jessica and Jenna are, to me, like so many others. Love Dexter and Caleb.
Sam has the Ricky Nelson lovability going on.
Not a happy result show.

I agree. I knew when Sam got the save that it would likely be Malaya going home, as the save tends to boost votes for at least the following week. Malaya has had difficulty getting the popularity vote all season long despite her talent and energy. I did not think Malaya would win, but I think that she is more talented than Sam, CJ, and Dexter. Being 16, I think her voice will mature and she’ll probably have a more successful career than at least half of the top 7 remaining. As for my hope to win, I’m rooting for Alex. I think he has the most creativity and overall talent, but America tends to vote oddly in this competition. While singing is the focal point of this competition, musicality and originality is what will push a career in the long run, which is why I think that people like Alex and Jessica will succeed after the show. Their performances seem more muted on the Idol stage, but what really counts is what their album sales will be like, and I just see them gathering more stable, long-term fan bases as opposed to being the temporary mainstream pop idol, which is where I think Jena falls into. She will sell records, but I’m not sure if she has the staying power. I really think that Alex, at least, will still be making great albums 10-15 years from now, while many of the others will be all but forgotten.

Whoever wins A.I., they’ll be losers…Let’s face it, the good guys are being sent home because these Phillip Phillips like losers wind up winners…this whole lousy show is on life support and it should sink into obscurity. viva ‘The Voice.’

She was way to pitchy and screechy the whole time. She should not have even been in top 50

Are you kidding? This girl is 1) 16 years old and has a voice better than most of the older kids and 2) She unlike many of the others grew every week and gave outstanding performances… She always kept her energy unlike Jessica and Alex who seem bored whenever they sing and bore me, yeah they have the vocals but you need to be active when you sing…

I agree with you on all levels, Amanda. Malaya should NOT have gone home by any means! And judging solely by Jennifer’s reaction, I can tell all 3 judges regret using their save prematurely. In all honesty, Sam was not worth saving! Yes, he’s a hit with the teeny boppers, but let’s face it: his vocal range is nowhere near that of Malaya’s. He lacks confidence and stage presence, is always looking down, and doesn’t inspire me to vote for him. In my opinion, the front runners are Jena, Caleb (although he needs to focus on giving more performances like this week instead of his usual ‘loud’ renditions), and Jessica (who is also needs to work on showing more emotion). I do believe Jena has the vocal ability to win but I have a feeling America will probably get it wrong this year because in the end it becomes a popularity contest instead of a singing competition.

Obviously the writer is a fan of Malaya. I hate to see malaya go. She should have stayed than CJ. Maybe America based their votes on the performance a night before tho admit it they could have been good. If some wasnt worthy of the save, why did american vote for him this week? He did prove he deserves to stay Amanda. There are other finalists who are worst than Sam. Maybe since Sam was one of the front runners, people expected too much from him but as David Cook puts it, his voice: “thats money.” As he described Sam as a dude with huge talent, all he needs is confidence. What abt Jessica, she has all the confidence but David puts it as not entertaining, why do people keep voting for her? Dexter eats the lyrics. Caleb been too loud. Jena’s style has been seen in the past seasons. Alex’s arrangements been geeting out the soul of the orignal melody. Malaya didnt do well in past too. Meaning all of them have flaws. All of them need improvemnet in some point. Meaning, it’s anybody’s game.

Let’s be honest here, there are NO standouts this year on idol! Malaya was average at best. She could not consistantly hit hers notes, especially when going for high notes. C.J. has a similar problem, except he can’t hit most of his notes. Jena is one that is hard to understand, Sam IS a Ricky Nelson type and most people don’t have a clue who he was, Jessica doesn’t show any emotion or feeling, (but hey, this IS a SINGING contest not a performing contest), Alex reminds me of Tiny Tim (again most people probably don’t know who he is), Caleb is an average rocker, and Dexter is an average country singer. It is a popularity contest so if the “teeny boppers” are the ones voting, who’s fault is that? Again, the talent’s just not there this year compared to years past.
Sorry for those of you who thought Malaya could sing. Maybe next year.

Malaya is way, way better singer than Sam Woolf! What a big mistake!!!!!!!!! This is why American Idol is going down the trash and drain cause the quality of contestants are long gone. They all look at the bottom of the “class” compare to the contestants of The Voice. People who voted for undeserving contestants are not using their heads and feelings. Don’t judge the book by its cover!!!!

Not a fair comment when he made babylon, he was one who stand out, effortless in vocals, he was just nervous. Who wouldnt be nway? We should not be so judgmental. All these kids have talents, all of them have flaws. Let’s not just be so negative on these dreamers. They have all God’s given talent for sure. Sam wouldnt pass Berklee if he doesnt have that voice.

I just have to tell you all, I am a 55 year old UN-teenie bopper and I enjoy AI. The talent is amazing. However, I felt compelled to post something. . this IS a singing contest. Malaya is cute, bubbly and someday may be able to control her talent, however at this time, she cannot. There wasn’t one performance where she sang on key, and the screaming was unbearable sometimes. It seems like everyone wants to compare her to Sam, there is no comparison between the two. Different genres, different ranges, different styles, etc., however, Sam does have a nice voice and sings on key. Yes, he probably will not win, however both Malaya and Sam will be on the tour and both will improve and both will probably get some kind of record deal. I also want to say, it is a terrible thing when certain people break this down into a racial thing, it isn’t. Popularity contest maybe, however all these kids are really talented and someone has to go each week, at this point in the competition, based on performances, I believe America has it right.
