Bottom three: Haley, Stefano, and Paul

I predict the 3 above go home in some order, in the next 3 weeks, so top 6 will be:

Pia
James
Scotty
Jacob
Lauren
Casey

Or maybe replace Haley with Jacob? I know he has a lot of fans, but everyone except one has got to go eventually. I have heard better renditions of "Man in the Mirror", though that was a great song choice.

Haley has noowhere near the talent, but she does like to wear short shorts to get the male vote. I would be amazed if Casey went home, but that would give him more time to start working on his first album.........

I can't believe the outcome!!!!

I guess the Californians haven't heard it yet so I won't say a word. But OMG, this person did not deserve to be voted off!

I'll agree the outcome was wrong, but I cannot be stunned. The results are determined by a whatever group of people can text a vote, and AFAIK, they can vote as many times and as fast as they wish. It's meaningless, and the judges put on a good act by looking shocked.

I watch the show for the talent, but I've decided to just not get 'emotionally involved' in the voting - that's a side-show AFAIAC. So I don't let it bother me.

I think Jennifer Hudson would agree

I agree with you.....

The more the judges flounce about, the more people will watch/cast their vote. It's all about the money.

That's entertainment folks...

I have to admit that it is still hard for me to believe that David Archuleta did not win. He was amazing.

I just lost my reason to watch AI this year........oh well, at least Pia can sign with another record label other than Freemantle, and do her own thing. She can start working on that album right away.........

I blame Gwen Stefani for giving Pia that horrible outfit to wear, the judges for being cheerleaders, and a voting system that allows love crazed teens to power vote for *cute* guys. Not one guy eliminated yet despite subpar performances from several of them. Looking forward to Simon's X-Factor later this year.

Stefano and Paul should be long gone. Jacob has talent but oversings EVERYTHING.....how much screeching can I handle??

I agree there are less talented singers (Stefano for example). But while Pia has a phenomenal singing voice, I didn't see her as a performer. She seemed to lack that intangible "stage presence."

Yep, I think the show would be far better if they changed this from a free-for-all. I'd bet they would get better talent also - how many serious performers decide they are just not going to subject themselves to such an arbitrary rating process?

But as long as they get ratings, they won't care. And those crazed teens are probably the market demographic that the advertisers are targeting.

I thought Pia was hot. She has good looks and a great voice. She will do just fine...

100% agree. The outfit did her no favors. If she had worn what she had on during the results show she would still be around. She looked amazing last night. Still, I can't believe she is gone.

This also proves the judges reacted too early and wasted their save a couple weeks ago. They are cheerleaders for everyone. Simon would have separated from that emotional reaction and let Casey go. Then they could have had the save for Pia who really did deserve it.

At this point I've no idea who the clear favorite is to win it. I'm guessing one of the country folks....Lauren or Scotty. Hope it's not Jacob or the wierd rocker dude.
