Man, what a shock and yes America most definetly got this one wrong. I just don't understand how someone who has never even been in the bottom three manages to get fewer votes than two who have been in the bottom three just because that Idiot Simon says something negative. I thought the song was perfect for him and he sang it well, as usual. If this is how "America" is going to vote, then I'm not watching the show any more!

I haven't watched American Idol this season because it conflicts with a show my mother watches so I just let her watch it. But from what I've seen in videos he could really sing and there are a few other girls that can't sing as good as him. I think that America is only focusing on appearances and not on talent. They need to get their thing straight. Most of the past few idols haven't even sold as much. There have only a few idols who have been able to actually keep working and making hits like Kelly and Carrie but the rest are just doind broadway and whatever else they are able to do. Hopefully this season someone who is really good will be chosen.

Well if they are voting on apparences then Michael should still be there because he was the best looking of all the guys!

Oh yeah I know he is hot. But I was talking about the girls. Bunch of pretty girls and nobody is paying attention to how they sing. I mean they know how to sing but not as good as other performers can. Hopefully he won't stop and will do what Chris Daughtry did.

I cannot believe he is gone either. I think Christy should have went.

Christy is a very good singer if you are in to Country. Idol isn't a C&W contest and that's all she sings, but being in the bottom 3 so many times, I thought she would have went....strange voting.

I'm thinking Michael Johns will end up being another Chris Daughtry. Look how well Chris did after being eliminated. I was shocked too like you said, since he's never been in the bottom three. One bad song choice and they're gone. I'm still going to watch though.

He'll make a name for himself anyway. He looked so disappointed.

I too have decided not to watch it anymore. The kid with the dreadlocks, I think is awful, and the Kristy Lee Cook isnt that great either. I think he is an awesome singer and will go far, even without Idol. I was disappointed last year, and I am not going to watch anymore this year either.

Well David Cook is still there and I do like him, so I might watch until they boot his cute butt off. I actually liked Jasons "Somehwere over the Rainbow" and I was surprised how well he sang it and made it his.

Yes. america did get it wrong for him. That guy can sing anything. He is very good. I hope someone takes him under their wing and gives him a career. I'm not sure if it had everything to do with Simon though. simon was rude to him, however. He did sing all of his songs very well. I think America is voting for the other ones more because they are younger and single. It isn't fair to the married guy. It made me sick too. I know who I want to go home but they still stay around and I have no idea why. It is awful.
