Tomorrow night is MOVIE night at Idol when our little warblers sing songs from the silver screen. Who will be sent packing?

Big Red
JPL
LaToya "Jackson Does" London
Jennifer "Holliday" Hudson
Diana DeGarmo
Fantasia
George Huff the Magic Dragon
Jasmine Trias

Unfortunately, I think Big Red will pull this one out -- he can croon some crap from a 1940s film. JPL might have a hard time, though. But my money is on the one who chooses the wrong song and for that I turn to Jasmine Trias or Diana DeGarmo.

I think Jasmine or Diana are in trouble also. I think they're both good (Diana more than Jasmine but Diana's young and needs to develop her stage personality more) but the two talentless guys seem safe because voters are stupid and those two girls aren't as strong as the others.

GASP!

Idol has been pre-empted by a press conference by the President of the United States of America. Does that mean we get to vote him off on Wednesday??

I agree red won't go-it's too easy to find a movie tune to suit his voice. How bout "Moon River", red?

oh god, PLEASE send John Stevens home!!!! it's time!!

On the Idol site, there are 4 or 5 different people who claimed they were at the taping, and the yall gave out different song lists. One person said JPL sang "Man of Constant Sorrow" from O, Brother, and blew everyone away!! Someone else said Diana sang "Tomorrow" from Annie, and she was raked over the coles for it. I guess we'll find out tonight!!!

I stick with my earlier prediction: either Diana DeGarmo or Jasmine Trias are going to bite the big one.

I also predict that George Huff and Puff will be in the bottom three. (This will make him an official bottom.) But thank you so much for not bouncing, George. No one likes a bouncing bottom. On second thought....

After this week my opinion on the bottom three:

George Huff JPL and Jasmine

I didn't like any of the performances by them. Fantasia, Jennifer Hudson and Latoya all rocked tonight and I'm voting for them. John Stevens needs to kill his hairstylist.

holy crap, Fantasia made me CRY!!!! she and La Toya had the most amazing performances of the night. I REALLY think Diana deserved better comments, she';s still a little sick but she still sounded GREAT!!!

I don't like Quiten very much, and I hate his films and he knows nothing about music. Oh well.

JPL was actually cute tonight, i liked him!!
John ,as usual, gave the worst performance of the night. It wasn't as painful as the last couple weeks, but I was still bored to tears!! he has NO charisma, like Simon said.

Diana better not leave tomorrow night!! im voting my fingers off for her right now...anything to get rid of John!!!!

There was a lot of good work tonight, even the erratic folk, but Tarantino damn near ruined it for me. Watching him do the uglee white homeboy thang (Quintin calling someone a geek is the pot calling the kettle caucasian) really puts me off my din-din. Bring on a judge who knows music, not someone promoting the release-of-the week. He is unbearable and unwatchable -- so what made Paula suck up? A desire to be in one of his vicious cartoons?

Still, any rainy evening that delivers a version of "Summertime" like the one Fantasia offered is worth enduring 50 geeks for.

Tonight's performances were very good. Of course Big Red and JPL were as annoying as anything, but the rest was really good. Diana did a very good job on that song from Titanic (I'm so bad with titles!), and I thought that La Toya was amazing. There was something about Fantasia that bugged me, but even still, she was incredible. Jasmine was also very good, and so was Jennifer. George Huff, even though very good, annoyed me a bit. Oh- you know who else was really annoying? Quintin(sp?).

I really hope Diana or Jasmine don't got tomorrow. I hope it's one of the Johns, because they're just annoying.
I have my books and my poetry to protect me...

I wish I weren't working at night these days, I now have to miss the show!!! Too bad I didn't see what you're saying about Diana, because so far I think she's among the weakest of the bunch. I'm curious what song big red sang. If anyone remembers, please post! thanks

It's Quentin. Awesome director and I thought he was mostly spot on--especially in his critique of Diana. Yeah, he was there to plug his film, but at least he was a celebrity judge who was able to make criticisms instead of just kissing ass through plastic surgery smiles.

1. Fantasia -- stunning and solidifies (if there was ever a doubt) that this girl will be a superstar
2. Latoya --gorgeous
3. Jennifer Hudson --I wanted more fire from her, but she's kicking ass
4. Jasmine
5. (tie) George Huff --bland
5. (tie) Diana --bland
5. (tie) JPL --best performance of his (and ain't he hot without his shirt!!!!)
8. Jon --on my last nerve

I predict Diana's going home. She was in the bottom 3, and I think the Titanic will sink her.

Newsflash.

What spice channel do you get, JRB? I didn't see any skin off of JPL!

Interesting that you think he'll bottom tonight with Big Red.

The networks are presenting a challenge tonight. What to watch: the Apprentice, Survivor All-Stars or Idol?

I'm so pleased that "reality television" is so popular and has taken away jobs from actors.

Thanks again, Big Red and Omarosa. You're much more entertaining than equity members.

JPL i can't I can NOT he is a grabage pail kid to me and I can NOT take him. I think he is HORRIBLE! I think John Stevens is way better and he is not even up there for me. Sure best performance from Up Chuck but that is not saying much he is just not good.

OMG I hate Big Red!! I cannot believe that he is still on the show! He really should have been voted off a couple weeks ago! I just have to know...who are these people voting for John Stevens?

I also really don't like JPL...there's just something about him that really bugs me!
