As tired as I am of P Squared....I would crack up if the finals were P2 and Hollie...particularly after the grovelling and bowing down and drooling praise of Jessica and Joshua by the judges all season.......

Especially tonight.

I hope Hollie survives tomorrow night just to throw a wrench in their plans.

Are you sure you have the right number?

Dead air means you didn’t wait long enough between calls. Or wait long enough after hanging up to dial again.

Not dead air, a recording that said "All circuits are busy".
But now, I am getting through 3 out of 4 times.
Here I am, a well seasoned citizen, voting on Idol.
Whodathunk?

In other news, the Rays come back in the 9th and beat the Yankees 4-1.
Woot Woot.

Havent we suffered from enough gay agenda in the news today without them trying to make these 2 a couple? SHEESH!

Local news was just shaming everyone that voted for the NC amendment yesterday. Click.

I got a bigger kick out of Shemp SMith on FOX doing a cross between being orgasmic about the “EVOLVING” POTUS, and being all too nervous that Conservative Republicans were not going to take kindly to this Gay Agenda.

You mom might be right. When I try to vote for Hollie, now I get a "Due to technical difficulties, your call cannot be completed at this time" recording.

So, I tried to vote for Phillip, and the call went right through. Then, I tried again to vote for Hollie, and got the same message again.

Things that make you go hmmmmmmm.

Jessica will move up when the Left Coast starts voting..SD is promoting her, big time, on t.v. and newspaper and radio plus the mayor of SD has declared her the SD candidate and urged everyone to vote for her.

Gosh if Hollie and P2 are in the finals, the judges will go berserk.

Please throw in a few extra votes for me for Hollie. I can get through on all the other 3 contestants, but not Hollie. Either Brighthouse is sabotaging Hollie outright, or all Brighthouse customers are voting for her.

Watching now and trying to read the thread in order as I watch. Hollie to meKILLED IT. She was somewhat comfortable last week and thus did pretty well. This week, she is a real singer. Feeling it, believing it. And for the first time she didn’t seem pageanty. I loved it.

Ok. Her hair was still pageanty. As if her mom was backstage and it was 1976 and she had a curling iron.

Like Joshua but I preferred Hollie to this. He’s pretty standard. very good but somehow boring.

Jessica is dressed more appropriately tonight. She sounds pretty good. She’s still got something a bit “performy” going on. She is probably just too young not to, or maybe it’s because she has been singing since age 5... Then again, maybe not. Michael Jackson was singing and seemingly into it more at age 5. I just can’t get into her.

Julian Lennon. The little kid that McCartney wrote “Hey Jude” for when he cheating dad broke up his parents’ marriage. The one who got no attention from his dad rather than all the love Sean supposedly got.

So let me get this straight...Hollie at her young age doesn’t have the life experience to sing about heartbreak. But 16 yo Jessica can belt out an adult love song like no buddy’s business?

Plus according to the all knowing judges, Jessica turned water into wine after walking on water.

Wow. Those judges sure are trying to “Jedi mind trick” the audience this season.

I’m not buying it.

I voted for Hollie about 250 times tonight. I sure hope she stays on.

That makes several of us. She can sing, but the theatrics - ala the non singer-

Adam L and Blake Shelton on the other hand seem very sincere, and to our ears are excellent singers.

C Lo is there for entertainment value.

comments is what makes this thread a top contender....

With the judging this year, it’s hard to sit there and wonder if you just
heard the same performance, or if the TV sound is off, or factually your hearing is that shot.....

Our bits of humor make all of that easier to endure :) :) :) :)

I voted for Hollie cuz there was a lot of Hollie bashing going on tonight.

Same here. Everyone I know feels the same. I can't remember ever being so fed up and disgusted with American Idol. They MUST know everybody's angry, but they keep doing it.

I got lots of busy signals for Hollie last night, but I was still able to get through now and then. Hopefully between everybody's anger at the judges' treatment of Hollie, combined with the Skylar votes, Hollie will be safe. That means we'll have a "Shocking Fourth Place Elimination!!!" tonight when one of the J's goes home.

‘American Idol’ Top 4 Predictions: Can Hollie Be Saved?
Thursday, May 10, 2012

http://www.buddytv.com/articles/american-idol/american-idol-top-4-prediction-45561.aspx

It’s the end of the road for Hollie Cavangh on American Idol. That’s the general consensus going into tonight’s results show, and I’m not sure anything can stop that inevitable conclusion.

The sweet young girl got the most negative feedback this week and she’s been in the bottom five of the past six weeks (I guess Elise Testone’s vacation home was a timeshare).

Even the judges seem to know Hollie is doomed. When asked about the Top 4, Jennifer Lopez meekly said that these are the people who deserve it, talking about Joshua Ledet, Jessica Sanchez, Phillip Phillips and “even Hollie.” It’s easy to read the subtext of that final comment. Jenny from the Block was clearly saying “I want people to think I’m nice, so I’m gonna pretend Hollie deserves to be here even though we all know it should be Skylar or Elise or Colton or, really, anyone else.”

Hollie’s departure from American Idol seems even more obvious given everyone else’s performances. Phillip Phillips has never been in the bottom and his “Volcano” was the kind of moving, touching moment he needed to secure all those young female votes. P2 should already be practicing his surprise face for when Ryan Seacrest announces him as the winner.

Joshua Ledet earned another standing ovation, although it’s hard to complain about it since he was seemingly possessed by greatness itself during “It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World.” I’ve grown tired of the judges’ obvious favoritism for him, but even I have to admit that was one of the best performances I’ve ever seen on this show.

And Jessica Sanchez got to end the night with that big song from Dreamgirls. Yeah, she sang it well, but that song is such an obvious choice and belongs in the pantheon of “Songs You Can Sing to Guarantee Your Safety” alongside Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah,” John Lennon’s “Imagine” and “Falling Slowly” from Once.

So everyone had a “MOMENT” except for Hollie. She just kind of sat there, dangling in the wind like a girl on a swing. If anyone other than Hollie Cavanagh gets eliminated, it will be a travesty, a sham and a miracle.

I think it’s a travesty and a shame for Hollie to go home. Actually I won’t watch the last shows if she does.

I blame the judges and their bamboozling Hollie for this.
