I don't like her. I think she is one of those stuck up sobs who thinks she better than everyone else. It seems like she has to work on being nice and that is supposed to be natural. I missed James last night.

Since when is Haley a rocker?

Are people and the media completely clueless.

They don't know what real good rock is anymore.

The real rocker...James Durbin got eliminated already.

Haley is no where near being a rocker.

As far as the fall...I hope that didn't help her? Why would it?

This is the top three. That is a beginner mistake that would have had Simon eliminating her before even getting into the top 10.

Sorry but if you can't be professional enough to NOT make a mistake like that at this juncture, you need to go...

I think Scotty should get it.

Haley fans...you need to get a clue what REAL music is all about.

I really don't think anything is going to help haley at this point, I do believe she is going home tonight, should be interesting to see her reaction to the results after last weeks eye rolling bratty attitude to the judges comments, if she does in fact get voted off tonight, I'm betting she will throw a temper tantrum. And her voice is starting to get screechie instead of growly like it was in the beginning, and its hard to understand her words, she slurs them way to much to understand the lyrics she's trying to sing.
I believe that Scotty will be the one to win this, Lauren wasn't near so strong as usual last night, she seemed to be a bit off, but still better than haley,, and not even close to how good Scotty Mac is, that kid is going to have one heck of a career if he is managed correctly, and I think with the support of the solid family he has in his parents and sister he will be on the CMA's within the next couple of years. He is one that doesn't need to tramp all over the stage to get the attention, his voice does all the work for you and captures your attention, that what it takes to make it on the radio, special effects and moves are not going to sell the radio songs, or cd's, it's the voice that's going to sell.
I would also really love to see him do Garth Brooks concert version of Shameless, he would blow the minds of everyone!

Honestly I love haley and people need to stop talking crap on her for the simple fact that if she wasn't good like you all saying you she isn't she wouldn't be in the top 3

It's not that she is good. It's that people like you have such sympathy for her. It's all sympathy votes.

Do you REALLY think...can you really see Haley being just as good as Celine Dion...Whitney Houston...think of any REAL American idol.

I don't. James yes...Casey yes...Pia yes.

American Idol has become a popularity contest and the votes are not really reflective of the real talent. Why do you think Simon left? After 10 years us Americans never did get it.

If Haley was so great where is all the outrage about her being booted off last night?? you know, like the outrage and shocker it was when James got booted, not exactly sure where the votes for haley came from, but those people sure are being quite today.
Congrats to Scotty!! the next American Idol!!.. Lauren your great, just not greater than Scotty, and everyone knows it.

Well, good luck to Haley.

I know getting eliminated isn't easy.

May God bless her and her future career, whatever that turns out to be.

Now, for the final showdown.

Woof, There is a major sociological change happening in America. The two Country Singers are the finalists on Idol, and the Rockers didn't make it. I believe this reflects a shift toward "values", which is reflected in Country. This is bigger than just Idol or just Music. It will effect America's political choices.

I think you might be right.
