I was so disappointed Lakeisha decided NOT to do "You're My World" as Lulu suggested. That really would have been the perfect song for her magnificent, powerful voice. Oh well, she did okay anyway. Of course Lakeisha could sing the phone book and make it sound great!

#7: Actually, I sang for many years. Surprise.

You missed the point. I didn't say I didn't like them. To the contrary, I hope Melinda wins...and I don't think Lakisha is untalented. Now, go back and read the post again. Or have someone read it to you and then explain it to you, because your illiteracy is showing.

Not sure why I heard not a single Beatles song on British night!! Its a girls season, with soul trio in the lead (kiki, melinda and jordan), but don't count the rocker out. The kat whatabee needs to go away NOW with the guys.

Is it me or just maybe I have watched too many seasons of Idol but I just cannot get into it this season. Usually, I cannot decide who to vote for because there is so much talent. The girls have this season won already...well at least two possibly do. I am just getting bored with it.

I think Lakisha did good, not great. Bad song choice for Gina, we know she's better than that! Stephanie? Her voice was all-over-the-place! What was up with THAT? She hardly had control of that song the entire way through. Worst of night hands down!! The beatboxer is getting old.. real fast.

That guy who wants to be Justin Timberlake should get the boot. He's so bland. I don't even know his name. When he comes on I already know to use that time as my bathroom break. Sorry dude, you suck.

Lastly, that little girl crying in the audience made my night. She was so emotional I couldn't help but laugh. Ah.. to be young and starstruck. :)
