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!

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.

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.

I love John Lennon, I hate people that try to cover him..But, that version was incredible.

Agree with you Cap, I love Lennon, but most people who cover his work do a piss-poor job. But that kid's version of Imagine was fantastic. My wife was so moved by it that she actually started crying (not Paula Abdul blubbering). But then again, my lovely wife cries at the end of every episode of Ghost Whisperer, so...

But really, that rendition of Imagine was incredible.

Have to say I loved that version of Imagine. It was better than the original IMHO!

I don't know who came up with that arrangement using the accoustic guitar, but it was a masterstroke. If Archuleta came up with that idea himself then he should forget about Idol and sign with a record company right now.
