I'm hoping there are other lurkers out there who can't be bothered to make a thread like myself (until today). Last year, this forum was relatively popular but there seems to be no interest in this year's season.

Just thought I'd make this thread to chat about who you think is likely to impress with the theme next week? (Not sure what it is!)

Who are your favourites? Any chances of a female/female final 2 this year?

Any song spoilers? etc etc

I'll get started; I think last week's top 3 was pleasantly surprising but I don't like the fact they gave away the rough voting order. Also I'm still pretty sure one of the guys could break into the top 2. Remember in the year Jordin Sparks won, the three women (Lakisha, Melinda and Jordin) polled in the top three halfway through the live shows and Blake still managed to beat two of them!

What do you guys think?

Hmm well. I think this year a female will definitely win it. I think there is a really good chance of an all female top 3 (maybe 4) this year. I think Angie should win it as she completely smashed the competition last week.

The guys have been the worst ones for years. Don't think any should win. But Devin is definitely the best of the guys and yet he was in the bottom 2 ...

I think Angie will impress again this week. I have listened to some of her music on her youtube channel and she is brilliant. The others are nowhere near as good.

I just love listening to Kree. Such a fine tone and great technique. I always listen for how the first line of words is sung, and the best singers, like Kree and Candice deliver them with great purpose. The average singers just seem to be waiting to get to the chorus.

If the female audience gets a girl-crush on Angie Miller (which I detect is happening) she'll be unstoppable in the competition with a very good chance of success afterwards.

It's nice to have a strong female competition this year, but I have to question the judge's choices for the guys. Some good singers seemed to get dropped in favour of this strange mixed bag.

Thanks for starting a thread! Looking forward to tonight's show. I think tonight is 'Beatles night', so should be good hopefully.

Starting in a few mins - at least this week I've remembered that it's on 5*, not Channel 5.

Eh Ryan, some results between 2 guys, and can't make out the name...Aubrey( I think)....yeah well done lad.

Kree Harrison starts show.....Those guys on guitar are very cute. Kree is a tad boring, not doing it for me, nor for that song either......5/10

Hiya ellie, Ryan stays superb.

Glad one judge agreed with me, as the others made me think I was watching another channel

Love the animated females...10/10

no, that note was too harsh imo....like squeezing a lemon....

6/10

extra comment: those judges are so OTT!

Hiya Dix. I love that we still get to meet up here every year


To be honest, I think the days of exciting Idol contestants has passed. Even though I liked Philip Philips from last season, it wasn't exactly a rocking group. I don't think this year's lot are gonna be any different.

Of all the Beatles songs, why choose Let It Be? Boring choice and boring delivery from Burnell

Yeah best part of AI, meeting old friends. You could be right re this year's lot being same as year before. Reckon that's what the producers want.

Amber....Hey she's good, nice dress too...sounds like she is suited for Broadway shows. Not bad at all 8/10

Nor me. Pretty boring from Amber. I can't handle a night full of ballads!

We need a Casey or a Haley or a David Cook or someone lively in this group

Back after some interesting ads

Loud family indeed nice to feel that excited eh

Like this song Lazaro is singing, and he's giving it a breathless feeling, sweet guy too. Has potential....8/10

Thought the judges were harsh with him, and he wasn't out of tune, as I recognised it.. What he did was give it an edge, and being edgy is good imo.

Me neither

Did Lazaro take a wrong turn and wander into the Idol studios instead of 90210?

Nikki looks great tonight - so much better without all the make-up she normally piles on.

Oh dear, poor Lazaro - looks like they want to get rid of him this week. What a poor song choice to give him. What a shame - was looking forward to some good songs that I actually knew tonight.
