The performance by Candice last night was stunning. I think the judges had their eyes opened a bit. Now if we could only get rid of Lazaro.

I loved Candace's performance last night! She is so talented.

I was also impressed with Angie's first performance, even more than usual, but the judges didn't agree. Oh well! Maybe that good impression was just because she was first? Her second performance was good, too.

I want Amber to win it all. She definitely has the vocal chops. Plus style. And a sexy way of looking askew. She's been getting better & better every week. If she came out with an album of jazzy-kinda standards representative of what she's sung so far--like "My Funny Valentine" and "What are You Doing the Rest of Your Life"--I'd buy it.

Candice is one amazing woman. This is the best I've heard this season.

Very good top 4 IMO. All excellent, different, but excellent.

All four are amazing! I loved Candace's performance too, Purron.

I was so glad that Harry Connick Jr. was the mentor this week. He is the real thing, a New Orleans native son and did a great job. I thought his advice was perfect.

While a lot of folks talk about the top 5 all being great, I think really this top 3 is the real core group of talent this year. Janelle and Amber are good, but Kree, Angie and Candice are a level above, and I think all three are likely to have long singing careers. I think the next two weeks is going to come down strictly to who messes up, or if no one messes up, simply a genre choice: Country versus Pop/Rock versus R&B.

All four (and perhaps even five if you include Janelle) of the girls are American Idols in my mind and this has come down to more of a likeability (personality/appearance) contest at this point vs one being a superior singer/performer than the other, however, I think that Candace has probably been the most consistent throughout, so suspect this is hers to lose only if she messes up. Also, agree with W2R's comment about Harry's coaching.

I was rooting for Amber to take it all, but gotta admit she stumbled recently, while Candice just kept on being great. With Amber out, I'm now rooting for Candice. She has got the voice and style. And hoping Kree gets 2nd place. Kree's gonna have a great opportunity at a decent career whatever happens here on out. Angie's very good, but to me has too much of the "look at me" attitude, so that's why I place her 3rd in my book.

I should say, that Amber, while very good, never quite got over her lack of confidence thing.

I was surprised and a little shocked that she didn't know the words to one song, or the emotional meaning of another. They have time limitations, but these are a priority and she failed to produce. She has tremendous talent, but to me that doesn't excuse singing "la-la-la-la-la" instead of the words.

Oh well, artists. They live in a different world than I do. I am sure she will have a tremendously successful career, even so.
