Elise is the only album I will buy/dpwmload out of all of these. All great singers, but I bought Haley's album and Elise fits that bill also............guess I am a Janis Joplin Joni Mitchell kind of guy.........

Janis and Joni !! In my book, that's a real man. If you admitted to admiring a cat at some point in your life, you'd get bonus points in my book. but that's probably better left alone

Unbelievable show tonight! I can't believe that some people aren't even watching the show. They are missing some incredible music.

I thought Skylar and Jessica didn't do that well in Round One, but they sure did in Round Two. Hollie was fantastic in both rounds.

My favorite was Joshua Ledet, this time. He has so much natural talent that I think it just spills out of him effortlessly.

My guess is that Philip Phillips will probably be eliminated this week. Not that he wasn't good - - all of them were IMO.

I'm totally with you that Phillip should be eliminated. He was weak tonight. However, I'm afraid there are a gazillion teeny-boppers dialing and voting for him as I type this. I hope I'm wrong.

I couldn't see how he and Joshua were in the top three last week.

Philip was a little weak---and a little one-dimensional. I'm getting tired of the growling and grimacing. Skylar is always consistently good in her country-rock mode. Hollie definitely wasn't stiff and had a beautiful tone in her voice. Jessica and Joshua were both amazing.

I wonder if Joshua could really win. He may be perceived as being gay, although not as flamboyant as Adam Lambert (who didn't win)---and not even out (minister's son).

Was anyone shocked that Joshua, Ryan, and all the judges don't even know what a daffodil is? They wondered what type of flower was in Joshua's lapel and came to the conclusion that it was a tulip! I thought even a kindergarten kid would know what a daffodil is---it's one of the top spring flowers!

They are all talented. But I'm getting a bit tired of both Phillip's grimacing and Joshua's screaming.

I can't stand Joshua's screaming falsetto voice, the 'too-small' clothes fit, and the whole gay attitude he has. I loved the duet last night. Phil had soo much fun teasing Joshua. I like Phil. I like his attitude and I like that he's enjoying just being there and not trying to give people what he thinks they want. He gives people exactly what he really is. From his wardrobe choices to his white man dance moves all herky-jerky. He's REAL. Joshua is an act and a pretty poor one at that.

All three girls had a good nite, and Joshua was lights out. Phillip has overstayed his welcome.

I agree it was a great night overall. High quality.

I'm very happy for Hollie and am rooting for her. She has taken the toughest criticism from the judges all along. And her attitude seems great. She is cute. She has a great voice. I hope she goes all the way although it seems unlikely.

I don't care for Skylar. Her appeal is lost on me. I think her voice is annoying and she seems very one dimensional.

I have not cared for Joshua much but I'm starting to like his voice better. Less screaming would be nice though. I can see why some would be tired of Phillip and his routine. I guess I just like that he does not seem to care and just does his thing regardless of what everyone else tells him to do. He just doesnt care. He is the honey badger of this competition.

Agree. Hollie was amazing last night. Her rendition of "Bleeding Love" blew me away.

She was amazing. Here's her other one from last night, which blew me away, too! I loved the fact that she was actually strutting - - quite an accomplishment and big change after the way the judges beat her down earlier in the season. Too bad this video doesn't show that.

I can't believe the results! She is such a great performer.

I do agree with the judges that this top five was top notch. Great show last night.

Surprised to see Skylar go tonight. Thought for sure she'd be in the top 3. Hollie seems a bit like this season's Haley Reinhart. Hanging in there like a champ.

I would have had Skylar ahead of Phillip and Joshua, and even with Hollie and Jessica.

Oh well. Damn teeny-boppers. How in the world is Phillip still here? Don;t get me wrong, nice kid, but not anywhere near the others.

"Those boots were made for walking"!

I think at this point the Judges should keep quiet, no need for them to influence the out come.

I miss Simon Cowell. It seems to me that the judges are too positive and rarely critical these days. When was the last time we heard a terrible performance called out as a trainwreck?

Stephen Tyler is a bit of a joke as a judge. The only good thing I have seen him do in two years is call out Heejun for his antics.

I'm surprised that Phillip wasn't even in the bottom two. I thought Skylar would make top 3 but not win it all. Her voice is a bit too nasal and the country theme is getting tiring. Phillip was not good at all on Wednesday. But he must have a good fan base. Jessica is on a different level than everyone in the competition from the beginning. But I think she's too young to relate well to the audience and with experience she could be huge. She just needs to connect more. I really don't like Joshua at all but the judges seem to gush over him every week. I'm thinking Joshua & Jessica in the top two.
