"I was scared for a minute. I think they did that for shock value," said Katy Gentry, who went to Crawfordsville High School and sung in show choir with Menard.

I know this is her friend, but Overmyer was one of the worst of the female singers, THAT would be why she was in the bottom two, I doubt shock value had anything to do with it. Same goes for Menard.

I'd like to see both of them do well on the show, but lets be realistic, they're not in the top ten of all of the remaining contestants.

She needs to soften up a little or she'll be next.

The number do not lie,she's too hard for a little girl.

If anyone should be gone it is Overmeyer.Each season there are good people who can really sing that get sent home, while others who can't stay and deprive the ones that can the opportunity to go the distance. If all it takes is for someone to get on stage and scream,then we all should be American Idols.

Patsy you are a fool that girl is the most talented singer of the entire group. She is gonna be the female Daughtry, she will finish in the Top 5 and have the best career of all of them.

Daughtry and Amanda may have a similar edge about them but there is a big difference. Daughtry can sing.

Scary Mary should be gone. Maybe people are afraid she will put a heck on them if they vote her off.

That is either a joke or you are a good friend of Overmeyer's...which I can respect. But come on. She was terrible this week. I hate to say it, but she is one-dimensional. She is great at the raspy bluesy sound, but that is it. She kinda looked foolish and uncomfortable up there this week.

I think the screaming skunk needs to go. The only reason she's still on is because she rides a Harley and that's "cool". Anyone who's ever had a Harley, has one now or wants one probably voted for her and that's what kept her there. I know that sounds crazy but think about it..........I can't think of any reason she didn't get eliminated.

Not if she sings songs like she did this week....

Even on the results show she was stuck with the wrong song for her.

She should get rid of the "101 Dalmations" haircut!

Damon: I beg to differ. The girl can't sing. Take her out of her element, and she's lost. I agree with George. Scary Mary needs to go.

She needs to stick to janis joplin type stuff. Her voice is way to raspy to try any teeny bop BS.

Amanda Overmyer should thank her lucky stars that she is still around. She is bad, and sure can't sing. It is only a matter of time before she will be exiting. Her wild hair and clothes are enough to gag a magot!

I have a better idea. Learn more about the presidential candidates and worry more about the direction our country will take this November.

Aw ... is your widdle bwain too teensy weensy to think about two different things at different times and in different contexts? If so, I agree, the election is more important. Some people are "multi-competent," and can do both.

30 million people worry about Amercian Idol and too many of them vote for the appearance of the presidential candidates. Most have zero understanding of the issues.
