The rocker nurse needs to go home ASAP. The kid from OZ could win it all.

If you are recording tonight - the early showing ran a few minutes (at least) over the scheduled time for Shaw. Quick - set the 9:00 recording to extend a while.

My kids will have to wait until tommorrow to find out the last member of the final 24.

hehe... well another year indeed.

There is some good talent for sure.

I felt bad for Joshaia(sp) the kid that was sleeping in his car... but I agreed with the decision.

What blew me away tonight was Simon when he gave his speech about jpw he completely disagreed with the decision with the last two boys and how he thought the kid(political wannabe in the tie) earned the opportunity to move on.

Should be an interesting season!

This is making news now? This singer's background was written about before this season even started airing.

How is this an issue? One of the guys from McMaster and James was on Canadian Idol a couple of years ago, and that would have been a much bigger deal than this.

I think they booted the right 4 tonight, and hoping that the rocker nurse leaves next week, and the gay kid that sang Jailhouse Rock.

Funny that they showed Paula's music video rather than have her perform the song live because she probably would have lip-synched the entire thing.

Early favourite for me: Remeile Malubay.

Pretty brutal how they sent that first kid home. I thought he was going to collapse on stage.

Well, as Simon said about the rocker chick a week or two ago. All songs sound the same from her.

It was a fast execution for the first kid last night.
