Interesting night,but difficult to get a read on.

Jiggled around with RO and each round was "given" by Jimmy Iovine to the person singing last in that segment.To my ears all 9 performances were quite bog-standard,but Kree's homecoming emotional VT,plus emotional song in Round 2 and Candice's no thrills Broadway song in Round 3 (including SO and the biggest ramp of the night as the pimp slot dictates) were the 2 most memorable moments.

Angie possibly the most consistent of the 3,but could suffer from not having a standout performance (manufactured or not)

I wouldn't like to call this,and any of the 3 going wouldn't surprise me.I guess it's going to come down to size of fan-bases as its difficult to argue who won the night,and therefore won the floating vote.Will post the early Poll numbers.......

Having read the reviews earlier I was pretty sure on Candice going through but having watched her peformances I'm now a little unsure. One and Next to Me didn't really deliver to her usual very high standard. Somewhere (they really went to town on the production etc didn't they? She looked incredible!) whilst head and shoulders above the rest (which we've come to expect) didn't quite have the same effect as Love Song. Her youtube for this song is beating the others easily (again not a surprise) but again there isn't the same insane buzz their was after Love Song. She seems destined not to recreate that amazing week...they tried to recreate the moment last night but I think it fell a little short of being a 'true' moment. This maybe just my personal taste coming into play as there are plenty claiming it to be "the moment she won Idol" etc. And in her favour the judges were very gushing "see you next week" is a pretty definite statement as well, even if it was Nicki who said it.

But I'm at a loss as to who is going through. I would probably go with Kree going home even though she had an emotional moment it was in the middle of the show and her final peformance was a bit dud so the moment was lost a bit.

But Candice's pimp and Kree's emotional moment could easily have knocked Angie out too.

I have absolutely no idea which 2 will be in the final. No combination would be a surprise.

Thanks all, and well done to fellow Candice backers :) (and Kree if there is any Laugh )

Always had the feel Angie's fanbase was just a noisy online one and the "cool kids" vote, which often falls short in the end. She came across very annoying in her homecoming with all that clapping shiit...fake and a bit too perfect. I did like "Try" though I concede.

Kree I'm a big country fan but this girl will never win me over. I didn't even like her 2nd song that people were raving about. She's just so dull and doesn't do it for me at all. "Better Dig Two" Shocked was a dodgy choice for her and beyond inappropriate after her VT.

My girl she's just too good methinks. I thought her coming was actually very good. I find her very humble and grounded. Bet she gets load of granny votes from places like New Orleans etc

I got the impression from the show they obviously wanted to put Candice through but whomever joined her was kind of irrelevant.

I think Candice will bring it home now as she'll almost certainly boss the final...Kree don't really do moments. Candice's wow's , Kree meh's ...the vote lines open.

I also think that Kree's vote will turn out big style.  Angie proved again that polls and twitter/youtube/facebook are ultimately bollox in terms of raw numbers. Rednecks don't tweet they vote.

Candice hasn't been pimped that much and her pimps are fine when they are deserved. They only backfire if you are shiit (Amber). America are with her for sure. I am fully aware of the redkneck threat as anyone who watches this show is but Candice has beat Kree on at least one week (After Lovesong when she had a relatively shiit week) more than likely beat her in quite a few other weeks too. So she can beat her in the final. They do need to be careful not to go to OTT though and make it come across as unfair as that could back fire. Faint praise for Kree please.

The title of Kree's single seems to suggest it could be her own song dedicated to her parents which I discussed earlier in the thread.Her homecoming VT showing her with her sister,visiting the old family home was a very moving moment (even for an old RTV cynic like myself).It could be that we are in for a repeat dose here.

Managed to lay a little bit of Angie before the semi-final,although not nearly enough (£100 @ 3) when I saw the song choices.Have to admit I got this all wrong.I thought she was TCO,however semi-final song choices,running order and VT clips showed that to be wide of the mark.

My book going into the final....

From what i've read and watched clips of...

Round 1. Meh for both
Round 2. (Originals) Kree definitely had the better song (still have it in my head) but Candice's song although song very well never really went anywhere and was a bit naff.

Judges were fair throughout and ramped both.

Round 3. Kree's best perfomance but Candice overshadowed her with a part acapella reash of her I who Have Nothing peformance, it was f**king amazing ! Usually these reprisals fall flat but the arena went bonkers and so would have the vote lines. The judges didn't even need to comment.

Based on this and the fact dial idol have a as a green winner (never been wrong in final when calling a winner green) I think she's got it in the bag. It's the general feeling out there.

We were lucky enough to have seats at this show - and let me tell you the whole building went off on this performance. My poor friend Steve was getting hit by me the whole time - she totally brought it. I had goosebumps on my face!!! this was an AI moment. And she started off acapella. And with all the smoke - the producer had to jump up and down in front of the front row so that she knew to start. It was effing amazing - so glad to have witnessed that

Thanks all Happy well done to fellow Candice backers our girl deservedly took the prize! How they rejected her twice I will never know... in the words of the parting Randy Jackson she is "crazy good" and for me took things to a whole new level with that sweet transcending tone and emotive delivery. Unparalleled indeed.

It proves demographics can always be overturned. (those 27 million in texas? Silly ) My policy of going for the best obviously paid off this time!

A nice big wad for BB now maybe some BGT too.

Sad about the ratings for this show going down the pan I put it down to saturation more than anything else. Hopefully it's on UK TV next year still.
