Elise Testone: After the Elimination
JOSHUA IS THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Phillip? Come on!!!!!! He is a joke!
JESSICA FTW! I would have preferred if she was with Joshua in the finale. but im glad that the teacher's pet is leaving too. He's a great singer but he keeps on freaking screaming. Now it's America's time to vote for the real talent or the white cutie who can sing and play the guitar.
Joshua Ledet IS the American Idol. Jessica and Philip are good, very good.. BUT...Joshua is GREAT!
He is as Jennifer said...destined for greatness. A voice like we've not heard in years.
Congratulations Joshua! You're the best!
Laurinn Phillip is greater than any american Idol in the history of the show. He don't need this to be famous, joshua is just one more pub singer.
If you think the show is legit. They always show bias. They built up Jessica and Josh way to much. If they give Jessica her own songs she will do great. The judges suck. What an idiot lopez was. Okay Baby, I want to hit you, i don't know what to do with you. A natural comedian. Jackson may have been a great bass player but Dog, Dude, Yo was a bit much. Steven Tyler is a big disappointment. he is great with his own thing, but other than that is Shut Up already!! Now back to one show. Josh and Jessics in the bottom 3. To belive this is stupity. We need new judges. I think Simon is the only worth judge ever. If he loved you he tells it and does not like your performance he says it. Kudos to Simon
They really need to take a look at what happened that night to the limited access to vote for Joshua. I voted for him religiously every week but last week it was hell trying to get thru on the phone lines and even to vote online. I was horrible but I kept trying until eventually I got thru. Something is definitely wrong there.
Other than Steven Tyler, the judges pretty much are sickening, drooling all over Joshua and Jessica, thay aren't supposed to play favorites, but help all the contestants be the best they can be. Joshua is a great talent, I think people got tired of his screaming, it got old after a while, Jessica has a good voice, but she needs to find her genre, she is boring, no personality, Phillip is the only one who has a great personality, he is so humble, not cocky, good looking, personable, a unique voice and is appealing to everyone. Never boring....hope he wins.
So sad to see Joshua go. All three contestants are immensely talented and have a very bright future ahead of them. I am certain Josh will be a success.....however......I feel that perhaps American Idol, in allowing video footage of Josh's dad wearing a gun, may have hurt Josh's chances with America. I understand that working in a pawn shop may make it necessary to wear a gun. I am not commenting on anyone's right to bear arms, or anyone's right to protest it. Being such a volatile issue, it should not have been made a part of Josh's hometown video. It is also unfortunate that Ryan saw fit to mention it and call America's attention to it. I believe American Idol dropped the ball on this one. They should be very vigilant in allowing anything to possibly prejudice the vote that should be solely made on talent and popularity.
I still think it should have been Phillip and Elise in the finale. Elise is amazing, and I cant wait to hear more of her music she is true talent! These two are both unique and just plain good!
NO LO PUEDO CREER!!! JOSHUA ES EL MEJOR CANTANTE DE TODA LA COMPETENCIA. NINGUNO DE LOS QUE QUEDARON SE LE ACERCAN EN TALENTO. SON HORRIBLES VOTANDO.
Last year Scotty and Lauren were constantly criticized for singing songs that were too old for them. Apparently that doesn't apply to Jessica. It's a shame and a disservice to her. They've made her 16 going on 25 and have dressed her like a diva. Really? Wonder what she'll be doing when she's really 25. She needs a lot more maturity to take on all that being the "American Idol" involves. I'm so disappointed with the judges and mentors for not letting 16 year old Jessica be 16 year old Jessica. Wish the two boys were in the finale.
Joshua did a great job, I feel he should have been in the final, but with vote for the worst going on the best will always lose. Joshua will never be a loser he will be successful in everything he does, no need to cry i enjoyed every song you song. I believe you will have a record deal in the near future. No more Amercan Idol for me, This is a setup.
Don't be upset guys! Joshua was a great performer yes he is, but this is a contest! Goodluck Jessica and Philip!
Frankie jU are SO wrong about that.. Sorry.. SHE is Going to Win next as I see it.. I am voting to the end to make sure of that.. I am not a fan of Philip by far but he too will make it big in the industry..
I am still reeling from the shock when Americans voted last night to send Josh home....are yall crazy????? That's ok, though, bad decisions are made every day and we learn from them....remember that when yall are watching Josh accept them Grammys and American Music Awards and Soul Train Awards......it is going to be "on" now.....watch out, a star has been born and he is coming to perform....don't let it get you, Josh, you are the best and have proved it every week, keep it going....be waiting to buy your music everyday!!!! LOVE YOU - (p.s. I have a son named Josh - spelled Joshuah - and I have a soft spot in my heart for you, too!!!!)
Sometimes the best singers do not win American Idol but go on to win Oscars and other awards...but what is very refreshing is the LOVE and support that comes across the television by the Idol Judges...DWTS Judges should see how REAL love and class is extended! Thank you for a wonderful show guys! Much LOVE back at ya!
I don't believe it Joshua is one of the top contender and a good singer.But who am I maybe God has a plan for him.
Kicking out at A I is not the end of your career impact this the start of your stardom.Good luck to your career Josh!
And Jessica Filipino people are so proud of you.Congrats!!! bring home the bacon girl!! Go go go.
Joshua is an excellent singer and yes we wanted him to win but God has something "BETTER" in store for him. There is a bigger blessing for him. For example Jennifer Hudson. What GOD has for you Joshua it's for you and no one can take it from you. Get ready this is just the beginning.
How does a guy with 14 standing ovations from the judges get voted off? Not sure what happened here but America screwed up. When you look at Jessica all she can sing is ballads. Every time she has tried an upbeat song which I believe was only twice, they told her it wasn't good. What is she going to do, make a CD with 13 ballads on it? I won't buy it. It should have been Joshua and Phillip in the finale. Phillip has the creativity and is a true musician. I think Joshua should have been the winner. He proved that he could sing it all, no matter what they threw at him.
I AM IN SHOCK !!!! UNREAL THAT JOSH GOT VOTED OFF IDOL .. PHILLLIP CNA NOT / DOES NOT COME CLOSE TO THE TALENT AND SINGNG ABILITY THAT JOSH HAS. THE LAST 3 YEARS IT SEEMS IDOL HAS BECOME AND POPULARITY CONTEST AND "NOT" A VOCAL SINGING CONTEST. PHILLP IS HANDSOME TO YOUNG GIRLS, ANS JESSICA GOT THE "SAVE" AND HAS THE BACKING OF THE MILITARY BECUSE OF HER DADAY GOING AWAY, THEY PITY HER. .. ALTHOUGH I THINK SHE IS A GREAT SINGER, SHE DOESN'T COMPARE TO JOSHUA. look what happened to Adam Lambert, one of the best, but Kris won.. OMG !!!
Colton Didn't deserve to go home. There getting rid of the real talent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
they are getting rid of ALL the really amazing talent, it makes me completely disgusted. I am honestly wodering if the finaol choice really is the juges.
I loved Hollie and Skylar Lanine keep it up with you voice both of you i think they are both pretty. I think you both did were the best and my favorits.
Holly I wish you the best and Randy and Steven is correct you will go far can't wait for the CD to come out. Please producers get JLO off her favortism is sickening.
Like Phillip, everything Elise sings sounds the same. Stylistically and vocally, both singers imitate qualities of other great rock singers, so the style and vocal production is not a natural extension of themselves, but rather, an affect.
While it may be entertaining for some, such performing has inherent limitations. I've already heard all I'd like to hear of both of these young people for a lifetime!
PS I thought it ill-advised for Elise to tell everyone that it would have been a sin for her not to have shared her great talent with the world -- yeeeeeeesh....
Hollie has shown that she is the class of the group. What great strength and maturing she had during the elimination. This girl has "IT' Randy, its a shame it took her leaving for the judges to see it. Love you Hollie!
Hollie you are my American Idol I voted for you ever single week, and I am sad that you are no longer on the show all votes go you buddy Joshua, Listen too the judges and I will be the first to buy your cd Good Luck hollie
Do not watch these moments, but I believe it was the 3 Phillip, Joshua and JessicaAnd I hope this is the order .................... if possible hehehhePhillip mega mega talent in the first, second Joshua a star, and a third talented and smalland large Talente Sanhez Jessica!May God bless you all!Sreve you are the best! LOve youuuuuuuuuuuuu
This year the fans had a real treat getting to watch and listen these talented singers.
every week people are complaining that America got it wrong again and again...if you do not want to see your idol going home then you should campaign for their behalf and vote until you drop, just like the other fans did to their own respective idol...result goes by vote..so you have to vote in every way you can...every contestant have their own style so respect that..stop bashing and hating because they are friends in real life....and if your sick and tired of reading same praises, then stop reading or going to any site that will irritate you..simple as that!
Not only have talent but are also incredibly beautiful and sexy, I hope to see much more of you in the future as the great artist you are because you have a fan from Venezuela
Hated it that Skyler was eliminated. I loved watching her perform. Loved her voice and energy and stage presence. Holly's the one that needs to go. I wish Skyler the best and look forward to seeing great things for her.
really what were the people watching. i am so sick of every talking about jessica she is so full of herself please
I think she is great and i will buy her first album. I think Hollie crying was because she knows she should have been the one to go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Phillip Phillips should have been gone a long time ago. Elyse and Skylar should be still on the show and so should Colton. If Phil Wins the show it will be just like when Taylor Hicks won or Ruben Studdard. They will never make it to Superstardom.
Chad Beaty I totally agree. I don't think Philip is getting votes for his voice. I think he's getting votes by the girls who like his looks.
Frankly....I thought Skylar Laine would end up in second or third place in the final show. Don't know what is going on with Philip Philips...But he should have went home a long time ago
Clyde Averitt I tell u he's not getting votes for his singing. He's getting votes for his looks. Remember America this is a singing contest.
Well I guess Patty has a problem with latino voting. If you think you're person should win then why don't you vote for two hours and maybe the person will make it. I don't think it's just latino voting for Jessica it's all the people that know she has a beautiful voice. Whether she win AI or not the girl will be BIG????????? So what if she's young, Scotty won last year and he was 17. So people please stop with the racial $$$$ it's starting to really get on my nerves. Joash can sing but he should have been born in the 60s then people would say he's singing and not screaming, Elise was as arrogant as they come, she's a vocal teacher so she really should not have been on AI, but that's Ok cause vocal teacher or not she didn't make it. So in 4 weeks we will see the winner. Can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
