Well, after just watching the show I am amazed that Michael Johns was the one who went home. I thought that it would be Carly as she has been in the bottom three before. I never would have imagined that it would be Michael Johns. I thought that the song that he performed Tuesday was good and I thought that he might be in the final three. How wrong I was! Do you think that America made a mistake with this? I sure do!!!

I think that American made a mistake also. I live here and I also voted for him 3 times. I was hoping and thought sure it was Carly also. She sounded awful on that song she sung.

Yes, she was my pick to go home with Brooke following as a close second. Carly sounded angry and mean in that song. I agreed wholeheartly with Simon's remark that she might be in danger.

Definately a mistake!! I thought it was going to be Syeshia. I just don't think this is going to be a good year for the show if it continues this way. If both David's get booted, you know it is rigged!!

I personally would like to see him go as I don't like him. However, I believe that Syesha will go fairly soon.

Definitely, definitely, definitely a BIG mistake. I am aghast! I look forward to the show every week BECAUSE of Michael John. I'm so upset...sob... what's the MATTER with you America?!!

I believe that it was a mistake too! I am sure that Idol lost some fans this week as it didn't seem logical for him to be the one to go home.

it was a definitely a shocking elimination!! i was pretty disappointed because michael johns was one of my favourites and i was hoping that he would stay till the end of the competition or something. this is so wrong!! why did it have to be michael johns..why why..haha..but i'm sure he'll succeed even though he's not in idol anymore. let's all support him

I agree. I am sure that we have not seen the last of him. I believe that everyone was shocked including the judges.

America made a mistake. I believe so. I cried last night watching Michael Johns singing his final song. I never imagined since the day the season began that he will be voted out that early. I thought that it will be Michael Johns and David Cook will be left for the final two and i find that line up very challenging because that two always being compared. I love Michael Johns than David Cook and he doesn't deserved to be eliminated last night. I expected it is Syesha Mercado that will be going home and not him. But we can turn back the time, it was already happened. What we have to do is to support him outside Idol and i believe in him. With the attitude and a talent he will soar high. Michael Johns is my one and only Idol.

I thought that Michael had much more talent than David Cook as he reminds me of Daugherty and I didn't like him. I think that he should be worried now because if Michael could go early so could Cook.

Michael Johns was actually my favourite. I think America made a HUGE mistake with this! He's amazing. He may not have been perfect last week but I can name a few others who should have went before him aswell. But this is just the start of sometething amazing. There's no doubt you won't hear from him again. :) He's got his name out there. He'll have the phonecalls rolling in by tomorrow! ha

I believe that we will hear a record from him before long as he is too good for some one not to notice. I just hope the competition stays on a better track than this.

I was shocked and so was the rest of the audience and the judges. I expected one of the girls to go. I actually thought that Brooke didn't do too well last week but I was wrong.
• United States

I agree with you on both thoughts. I really didn't think that Brooke had done a good job the past couple of weeks and thought that she might be the one to go,but I expected Carly.

I definitely think it was a HUGE mistake! I was shocked- there were four others (imo) that should have gone before him. I am buying his song from last week later tonight from itunes- that song still gives me butterflies...lol. First shocker of the season for me, and I am so disappointed it was him.

I was shocked too! I think that everyone was shocked. I thought that Carly would be gone on Thursday.

ouch... michael johns is my favorite. do you remember jasmin trias? she was at the top three together with fantasia at american idol season three. randy told her that this is american idol... "american" she is a filipina who is now living in america. i think it was just like that. michael johns is an australian and now living in america. i thought also that carly or kristy is the one who will be out. i am not an american but i watch american idol. i agree with you that america made a mistake. if you compare michael's weekly performance to kristy's weekly performance i think america made a mistake.

I personally like Kristy and think that she done a wonderful performance on Tuesday. However, I thought that Carly sounded angry and I thought that Brooke White had a bad two weeks in a row. I know that Michael shouldn't have been the one to go.
