Disagree with me if you want to, but Jason is way, way overdue for a trip home. He should have been long gone and either Carly or Michael Johns should still be there. No offense but if he doesn't go home tonight I'm going to come to the conclusion that not only is America tone deaf, but that people vote based on 'cute' rather than singing ability. In fact, if Jason doesn't go home tonight I'm going to take that as a sign that there is hope for me (and I can't sing). lol

I was happy to see him go last night. There are some very good singers that got voted off before him. I can't belive he made it so far to be among the final 4. Both of the songs he sung were awful. I know Carly and Micheal Johns were both alot better then he was. I have never cared much at all for Jason Casto or however his last name is spelled.

I think he had maybe two performances I liked. But I totally agree that Carly and Michael were better singers. I kind of wonder (maybe this is stupid thinking) if they got voted off early because they weren't "American" enough...

I hope not but it could be way. Which is sad. I remember Micheal beinf from Austrilla. I can't remember where Carley was from but I remember her auditiong before but she didn't make it in because she had to get a passport to the United States. I know if people voted them off becuase of that it isn't fair. I voted for Micheal 3 times the night before he got voted off. I was really mad. I thought he sang great with theat Aerosmith song.

I totally agree with you Dawnald. I also think Jason should have been sent home weeks ago. There were better contestants than him. His "cuteness" can only go so far and I hope that America has better taste in music. If he doesn't go home this time, you can audition for the next Idol season. rotfl

If not on the Idol, you may find yourself in YouTube instead.

Well, as we all know now Jason did go home. I really like him and I think that he is good and will for sure have a contract before long. He has a specific style and I think that he is a little uncomfortable with singing other songs. However, I don't think that he was as bad as Simon said. After all, Brooke White forgot her lines and he didn't tell her to pack her bags! I liked Michael Johns and I do think that he should have been in the top five. I believe that Syesha should have gone before him.

Syesha, Jason, Christy and Brooke all should have been gone before either Michael or Carly. I agree Jason has a nice style and he's a good singer when he doesn't go outside of his comfort zone.

Hi Dawn! I would have to agree. Jason should have gone home a couple of episode ago. There are other finalists were more deserving of his spot. Just my opinion. Hope the Jason fans here won't chase me down with torches and pitchforks. And I bet you could sing better than Jason.

torches and pitchforks lol No, I can't sing better than he can, but I sure wish I could!

I also agree with you, dawnald. I really wish it would be Jason will go home tonight. You're right either Carly or Michael should be in top 4 at least instead of him. I really don't understand voters why they like him, he's always safe even if he performed very badly in my opinion. I mean, they obviously based it by "cuteness" instead of talent. I really hope he will be the one who'll go home tonight.

I definitely agree that Jason should be going home! He is 1 of the 3 people I thought out-longed their stay in American Idol (the other 2 are Brooke and Syesha). But I noticed that Syesha is getting better and better these past few weeks, much better than Jason anyhow. Jason just gets worse everyday. He doesn't sing that well, and I personally don't even think he's cute with that goofy and care-free personality. Too bad I can't help with the vote. I'll be really disappointed if he doesn't go home.

Jason is a folk singer and he pulled it off pretty well. He is a good singer and even if this is his last night he has exposure and i bet he will go far, he is a unique talent

I think when he picks the right music he is very good but I don't think he is nearly the best singer in the competition!

while reading your discussion and reading the responses i miss michael johns. it would be a cool idol season if michael johns and david cook was the one left to be choosen as the idol. david archuleta is young and far to be compared if they will be the remaining two. jason and syesha needs to take a rest. i agree with you that carly and michael are no longer in the competition but syesha and jason are still in.

I miss Michael Johns and Carly both, but then my favorites never win, darn it...

I think Jason is adorable, but his singing isn't at the level it should be to be this far in the competition. I am not really a fan of Syesha, but the last two weeks I think she has actually been singing well and performing well. I think David A. has a great voice, but I find him incredibly boring. I think I probably like David Cook the most, but I'm a rock fan in general =)

David Cook has really grown on me and I think he is probably the best all around performer who is left. But David A. has possibly the most talent, just a matter of growing up and getting a bit more experience and more interesting song choices when he doesn't have to choose from a canned list.

I totally agree! I can't believe he's still there. At the beginning I didn't think he would get through the first few weeks but yet he's still around. I don't know if it's the dreads being something new and different that is keeping the girls interested or what. It's way past his time to go! Of course, this is the week when some of the shockers have come and someone was voted off that people thought would be in the final two. I guess we'll see if history repeats itself.

Well if somebody ends up in the final 2 who shouldn't be, I hope it's Syesha and not Jason.

I have to agree with you on everything you just said. I couldn't say it any better. I think David Cook should win it. He is very talented. David Archuletta is still young, he can make it on his own I think anyway.

I will be OK with either David winning. And I suspect that both Davids will have pretty good careers ahead of them no matter what happens.

I am not so sure that jason will be going home although he didnot sings very well in Top 4. Syesha had been struggling with votes from her fans. So if Jason fans vothe for him like crazy and Brooke fans vote also for Jason, syesha might ne going home. Anyway, bottom 2: Jason & syesha.

I will be more or less OK with Syesha going home. She's had enough weak performances that she probably doesn't belong in the top 4. But she belongs there before Jason does. But I noticed last night while dialing that Syesha's line was the only one of the 3 I was voting for (her and the 2 Davids) that I could get through on. Never a good sign!

I agree wiht Simon. Time for the guy last nght that played the guitar and sat on the stool (Is that jason?) to pack up and head out. Frankly..at this stage I was not impressed wiht any of last night's performances. None of them are good enough this year.
