well I've been watching this show for three seasons now and I have to say that this is the biggest joke of a TV show. Why are all these good singers being voted off and Sanjaya is still there? Is America so bored with itself that it actually lets good singing talent slip by the wayside in order to allow someone like Sanjaya remain on the show, merely because people feel sorry for him? Were is the Talent the show is based on?

i agree ryan is rude to simon, paula says way too many nice things to the contestants. it's like she's scared that they might not like her. who cares tell the truth like simon. it might be a little arsh but it's the real world. i like american idol but it's time for the singers to sing songs up beat i'm tired of the slow and safe songs. it's like they are scared to go for the gold and settle with the bronze. good luck to the contestants.

I think that Chris was an excellent singer and will definately have a career in music. Hello! He's so talented that some record label will snatch him up. However, he has shown in his post-Idol interview that he is not American Idol material. What a conceited jerk. An Idol must be gracious and grateful to the public and to his/her peers. What Chris has shown is nothing short of ungratefulness for the great opportunity and a whole lotta self-absorbtion.

Chris has alot of talent and will be snatched up by some big record label. I'm absolutely positive that he will go far. However, he is obviously not American Idol material. Has anyone seen his interview?!? What a conceited jerk. An Idol must be gracious and kind and appreciative of the opportunity to be an Idol contestant. He's just ungrateful and rude and self- absorbed. Good luck, Chris, but get and attitude adjustment.

The apparent popularity of Taylor Hicks is something that I just don't understand. Watching him makes me cringe. I don't mind listening to him, he has a decent enough voice, but to watch...AAGGGHH!!!!

Mr simon,yes you are now a brand, congratulations!But I wish to tell you that you are cruel. Theres something wrong about passing off peoples hardest efforts with a few irresponsible ill bred comments, you can be constructive and objective and still be simon, I mean there's a Randy AND a Paula!

The artist that shockingly, "blew me away" last night was hands down....K.D. Lang. Being a 40 yr.old, married, Catholic women of three boys...I haven't given her the credit she deserves. I'm going to buy one of her CD's today.

I can not believe how rigged American Idol is. I think they know who is going to win before the show even starts. I can not believe that people would vote in a man who looks like an old man and can not sing worth beans. There were so many other contestants that sang much better than he did and yet he still won. Either America has lost it or it was totally rigged. I will not watch the show after that pick....

So he won did he? (I'm in the U.K. The show doesn't get shown here until Friday)I totally agree with you beas143, it HAS to be a fix. We decided not to watch it anymore when Chris Daughtry got voted out as we became convinced then it was a fiddle. I can't recall who the actress was, but it struck us as odd when she asked Ryan Seacrest if Taylor Hicks could sing Jailhouse Rock again because 'he rocked the show last night' - we reckon that was staged because they knew most people would be stunned when the votes were announced. After hearing last week that Elliot was out there was no doubt left in our minds at all. Although his style of singing isn't to my taste I do recognise his talent and I simply cannot believe that a cringe making, embarrassing, second rate singer like Taylor Hicks can win when he's up against that sort of talent.

I can't believe the judges thought and agreed that Where the boys are was a country song...That was unfair to the singer. She should have another chance. Sorry guys, you were wrong.

i have an opion on the last american idol, when chris went home. I think it was the WORST mistake that america has ever made for this season, he was the best one of all of them and didnt deserve to go home AT ALL and he knows that , so does everyone else!!! The guy gives his best then america sends him home thats unfair, now someone else is going to win that doesn't deserve it as much as he did! They should at least bring him back on and give him another chance because he deserves it, and its not that the others dont, its just chris can sing ANYTHING, u name it he can sing it. Everyone was astonished when Ryan said that he [chris] was going home. America totally messed up and made the BEST one go home. Now i dont know about anyone else but i would give him another chance no matter what! Thank you, Sandra Henry im from Jersey Shore Pa, and im 14 years old PS. BRING CHRIS BACK!!!!!!!! PS. MY MOM FEELS THE SAME WAY AND SO DOES THE REST OF THE FAMILY!!!!!!

Why does Ryan Seacrest think he's clever by trying to riducule Simon Cowell? Unfortunately he doesn't have the intelligence to understand our British art of Sarcasm!!!Simon's reference to a Karoke performance means that the person likes to hog the mic but no real feeling.A theme park performance - all singing all dancing and no breadth of character - a George W characteristic.Piano bar performance - background music which is easily forgettable once you've walked away!Simon has breath of character and is honest and doesn't need to kiss anyone's posterior!!!Paula please get the fence the splinters must be hurting by now!!!! I've got some tweezers if you want to borrow a pair!!!!!

I am so fruious with this girl Antonella.I think she is disgusting, and truly should be eliminated!She is not that talented, and I didnt like the comment that Simon made, saying that the good news was that she is attractive..why wouldnt he say that to other contestants..some of the good looking black girls. ( I am not Black ) ..but, I can see a preferance happening. Either way, this girl is a pig and she tries to come across as a good wholesome american innocent girl..and she is far from it, she should not be representing America!!

I for one am glad Mr. Conceited is gone. I was blinded by the glare off his head...lol.....Anyways, our true American Idol is Taylor Hicks, he can sing, he has personality and he truly loves his fans. I am from Alabama and I can honestly tell you that Taylor is a true southern gentleman. GO TAYLOR GO!!!!! YOU ROCK!!!!

The American Idol show tonight was a big disappointment to me as well as to thousands of other viewers. Technically all they did for two hours was beg for money. If I had known that it was gonna be like that, I would not have watched the show. It was totally cruel to let Jordin think she was going home and she naturally thought that since she was the last one standing. I am now beginning to think, as other viewers do, that "SANGINA" was a "plant". in order to make sure the viewers watched because they wanted him to be sent home. The only thing good on the show last night was Elvis and Celine. That was a very good move. After this season, I think I will watch something else instead. Things have just gone to "pot" with American Idol.

I just watched tonight's result show and I'm astonished how Sanjaya received more votes than Gina the person who was cut tonight. Gina can actually sing and she could carry a tune, Sanjaya is plain boring and he sucks, the bottom 3 should have been Sanjaya, Phil and Haley based on last night's performance, with Sanjaya going home. America got this wrong.

If you think the voting is rigged, well, besides American Idol there are a bunch of contests for bands to get signed or label deals. I've found this site - I think it's cool because you can hear the contestant's tracks or watch their videos and then vote and help decide who wins. http://www.firsttracks.gather.com/xo zakiya

Hey! How you doing, I just want to know why Antonella Barba is still on the show, because she was in nude pictures too, just as well as Frenchie, from season 2. She was put off the show when she was better then the other contestants, and now you'll letting Antonella Barba go on that is not fare at all.

Simon- I totaly agree with your comments on katherine I dont know how america could still have her on she blubs her songs and smiles and licks her lips constantly why does American Idol still have her on????

I thought Shakira's dance performance and song on American Idol were inappropriate for this show -- it bordered on the lewdness most often seen on MTV. Most families watch AI because it is a show the whole family can view without having to worry about overt sexuality and nasty lyrics. I think the producers should have been more upset by this than by her failure to meet with contestants.

Who has the last say about who picks the songs for these contestants? They should have known that Lennon/Mc. songs were on the agenda and NOT let David sing Imagine so early on. He would have been the most outstanding one on this week when they featured their songs! What's up w/that? It may be called American Idol - but this is rigging w/out a doubt.American Idol screwed up the year that they "left"Ruben Studdard win - they thought he would be more "bankable" than Clay -- shows the Producers don't know squat! STOP RIGGING THE SHOW - idiots.

We have watched your show for the last 4 years. This year I don't know what Ryan's problem is. Simon is being honest and it seems that Ryan always has a smart-ass remark to him. He doesn't do that to Paula or Randy. I feel that sometimes Simon says things before he thinks, which we are all guilty of doing occasionally, but Ryans looks like he can't wait to make a nasty remark concerning Simons revue of the performance. I would like to hear Ryan's answer.Thank you,ChasPat

Where is RICKY BRADDY? Why haven't we seen and heard more about Ricky Braddy? He has a great voice and we want more! Why is there such a mystery around Ricky? Is American Idol planning some big deal to FINALLY promote Ricky Braddy or will they continue to deny idol lovers the chance to get to know him and hear his unbelievable voice? I want RICKY BRADDY!!!!! NOWWWWWWWW...

I think if people real want to compete then they should have contestants write their own songs without music and sing them. That would be a good show. Not contestants singing others songs, but their own.
