He did not do a bad job, but this song really sucks.

"Vote me off, so I can go-go. Send me packin' back to C-ville oh oh..."

I agree with the poster earlier that said Amanda was very good before the top 24 because she was unique and different. But lets face it, Joplin/CCR/Doors tunes aint gonna take you very far.

And to the idiot that said "I cant believe ppl get wrapped up in this, blah blah", do you watch tv at all? The same thing could be said about ANYTHING on tv. Im not a huge fan of AI, frankly I hate most of the songs they sing (pop), but I have nothing else better to do at night.

Luke is a super good looking guy but unfortunately his song selections just suck.As much as I would love to see an Indy idol I dont think it will be Luke.

So what do you do for entertainment? Oh yeah, you read comments people make about shows you don't even like. I bet you are fun to party with!

Luke is the worst one left of the guys...and the guys this year are REALLY good. He's gone.

And, the girl from Mulberry or where ever just flat out stinks. If she was my old lady and singing in the shower I'd tell her to put a sock in it. I have no idea how she made it that far..she's horrible.

He sucks! Paula is on crack and Randy just didn't have it in him to tell Luke that he sounded like a nudist that had just backed in to cold-nose dog. Simon had it right once again. Bye Luke!

Luke doesn't have a chance. He isn’t as good as the rest of the guys. I think Nurse Ratchet is great. She is fun and different and ROCK N ROLL!!! Go girl. And I thought Danny would be alright, but he was bad last night- I was surprised they still liked him. He's a flake that can't sing. And the guitar guy with the toupee! Chris Dautry wasn’t afraid to have a receding hairline. That guy has a good voice, but he’s a jerk – if he wins, he won’t make it because he thinks he knows everything.
I really like Chikezee… I thought he was great last night.

No. 6 - the guy who sang "Hello" did an awesome job last night. Like Jackson said, he was "brilliant." There were a lot of good vocals last night, but in my opinion, he was the best. Sorry but Luke had a poor song choice. With all of the great hits of the 80's, why did he use that "lukewarm" (pardon the pun) song?

While Luke has a good stage presence and singing voice, I agree, he is meant to be in a group, not as a single artist.
As for Nurse Ratchitt from Mulberry, I'm glad she has a career to fall back on - she is so limited in her repertoire.
I hate classic rock. I hate hard rock. And even saying this, you couldn't be MORE wrong about "Nurse Ratchitt." This woman has a distinctive style that will be sell amazingly well in a niche market, and they won't even need to do anything to change her look. As the judges always say, she's completely authentic. She's not trying to be somebody else, like the rest of these folks. I think America likes teeny-bop pop queens trying to sing soulful R&B, so I don't think she'll win this. But I bet she'll get a contract. Can Bruce Springsteen sing? Absolutely not. So why do people buy him? Distinctiveness. When you hear Springsteen, you NEVER have to say, "Who is that?"

I love the dreadhead Jason Castro. My vote will always go for him. Luke is very unforgetable and Danny is TMTH (too much to handle) and flamboyant. For girls i really like Ramielle, she needs to show more personality though!! Cant wait for tonights show go Jason and Ramielle!!!!!!!!

Danny will hang in there for a while, because votefortheworst.com is endorsing him (and Amanda). I thought Danny was great in his first audition, but since then has been mediocre at best.

As for Luke -- a Wham song?! Yikes.

It amazes me that people have nothing better to do than get caught up in some idiotic singing contest. Think about how much time each week you spend watching this crap! I think I'd shoot myself if I had to watch more than 10 minutes of this ridiculous show.
If your life is SO busy, then why are reading and commenting on this article. Duhhhh......idiot.

Why be surprised with the choice of song. Wake me up...is one of the best songs of the 80s and George is one of the msot versatile and natural voices that ever was. We got to stop judging him for what he does 'Outside' and appreciate him for his musical genius and talent.
