Well Melinda just got voted off and I'm really surprised. I thought for sure she would be there until the end. I'm a Blake fan, but still i figured he was going home. Wow, Melinda is gone. discuss.

Nor can I. I actually voted for both Melinda and Jordan as I love her personality but what a voice Melinda has, so much stronger than the both of them and versatile. I can't believe it, I thought for sure she was in the final. As for Blake, way to go... the fans love him!

Wow is definitely right. I was completely shocked that Melinda got kicked off. I thought for sure it would be her and Jordin in the finale. Blake should not be in the finale. I bet he was surprised as well. No doubt that there are many other people that are shocked right now. Jordin will probably win the finale.

My husband and I are very disappointed. We wanted Melinda to win the whole thing. She has the most talent of the three. Blake and Jordin are cute, but I don't think they come close to Melinda. Maybe when they get older...

I'm with you I am definitly a Blake fan but was ready to accept the fact that he was going to go home tonight. When I heard the news I was shocked glad but at the same time shocked. Blake has a lot more personality than Melinda and I think his style and the fact that he took chances is the reason he is still there I cant wait till next week.

I think the top 3 deserves to be in the spot where they are. They have different style of singing and all of them are good. I was surprised Melinda was voted off because she's undeniably good. But a part of me was not because I know Blake and Jordan have lots of fans. Whoever wins surely deserves it.

I thought Blake will be eliminated...don't get me wrong, I am a Blake fan too but the two ladies are really great singers especially Melinda. I guess most of the American Idol viewers or at least those who vote are in the younger age group.

I can't believe Melinda was voted off. She was the best! I thought Melinda and Jordan would be the final two.

I'm disappointed, but not shocked. Melinda was the best singer in the competition but she didn't have any marketable value other than her voice and her and Jordin shared a lot of the same fanbase. While Blake as a singer should have gone home, he has a large fanbase all to himself! I think Jordin and him are a good Final 2 though. They are both talented in their own way. Here's to Jordin winning!

I thought it would be Melinda and Jordin, I was really looking forward to seeing them go against each other they both have such powerful voices and great talent. I really liked Melinda, I thought she would have won the whole thing.

I just don't get the beat box thing he's doing....especially with the Bon Jovi song. I'm a huge Police fan, but I was definitely not impressed with his version of Roxanne last night. I guess we'll find out next week though!

I kind of thought/hoped it was her. She is a very good singer but doesn't have much in the way of personality. Since I am a blake fan, I am obviously happy although between him and jordin, she will probably win.

I was almost sure it was going to be Blake and Melinda in the final two, but I guess Jordin impressed everyone enough! Maybe it's because Melinda didn't have quite was exciting of a personality? I guess it's fine with me though, because I really want Blake to win anyway! And now, I think he's probably going to do it.
