First of all, I think Simon is an _$$!
Second of all, Siobhan was the best one tonight!
Third of all, not since Kelly Clarkson has someone brought tears to my eyes,
listening to her gave me chills!
Fourth of all, Vote 1-866-436-5702!!!!!
That's all ;D

Ok, I just did something I NEVER thought I would do. I voted for American Idol. :) Granted, I didn't watch the show. I'm just taking everyone's word for it that Siobhan is good. :D

Thanks guys! I voted around 200 times for her.

After they are down to 12t, do they eliminate 1 per week?

I think Simon is pulling for Crystal big time. And I think that Siobhan is her biggest competition, so it seems that that must be why he criticized her performance last night. I can't think of any other reason because I thought she was awesome.
I think Siobhan will do the best when they have to do different music styles because her voice is so strong and always on key. Crystal is excellent at what she does but she may not do as well at other styles.
The guys are not very good this year. I don't know if I'll even watch tonight.

I've got in sort of late on this go round, and haven't had the chance to see Siobhan perform, only a minute at the end. I did see Crystal perform, and must admit I was impressed with her performance last night of Tracy Chapman's song. When I first heard her and looked at her, she reminded me of Janis Joplin, in her style of that song. That is probably what Simon was thinking and visioning to procure her for his company and push that strength outward. Janis was a hot commodity back then. I will be watching for when the girls sing once more and check out Siobhan. Conflicting programs (NCIS) make it hard to catch it, tho. Do they ever repeat those shows some where, the internet, or as Oprah does on a later time of day?

Thanks,
OD

You can watch Siobhan's performances here: http://www.americanidol.com/videos/season_9/performances/?keywords[]=siobhan+magnus

PS You'll have to copy and paste the entire thing, including her name. AQ doesn't like the link because it has the brackets in it.

They had some really nice things to say about her over at Entertainment Weekly:
I mean, we haven't even hit Idol's big stage yet, and Simon is already endorsing Crystal on the Tonight Show and telling us tonight that the competition is ''hers to lose''? It's enough to make you wonder if perhaps Mr. Cranky's true goal is to sign Siobhan or Lilly, and that he's cynically hyping Crystal in a stealthy attempt to sabotage her. Actually, that would be one way to explain Simon's inexplicable disdain for Siobhan's ''House of the Rising Sun,'' which — no exaggeration — I'd rate as one of the best pure vocals I've ever heard in an Idol semifinal. I mean, let's get real for a second: Given the fact that Randy Jackson considered Big Mike's James Brown worthy of a standing O last week, how is it possible that all four judges didn't get off their duffs on the basis of Siobhan's achingly gorgeous a capella intro alone? Come to think of it, only Ellen DeGeneres seemed genuinely blown away by the way Siobhan powered through her notes with a melisma-free clarity that's all too rare among Idol's ''big'' vocalists. Me? I could listen to a whole concert's worth of Siobhan's achingly lovely lilt, the way it rises and falls as she loses herself in the lyric, the way her upper register seems to inherently convey an innate sense of angst and pain and loss. If Siobhan's emotional commitment and pitch perfection is ''a bit weird,'' as Simon described it, then I hope more season 9 contestants follow suit.

Thanks TG. I heard the song Think, by her, but it doesn't have House up yet, on the main site. She has a very good voice from that song, however. So I see what everyone is talking about. Hope she wins for you all.
Thanks again, will be watching.
Oh, I thought Alex lambert was good, as well as Aaron Kelly.

Well, I couldn't get that link to work for me, so went to google and found the idol site, maybe that was a cached site, or something from there. Will try again later today.
Thanks.

Oh, TG, I'm still screwing around with switching back and forth with my server to FoxFire, cause FF won't do You Tube or anything without dl of Adobe. Don't need two Adobe flash players cause there is one on my server. Its a pain in the rear, but switch back and forth. And yes, I did copy and paste the whole thing with FF, it told me error, that to check my spelling blah, blah, blah. Then went to my server and it wouldn't do it either, for some reason, so googled. Okay, will try out fox.com and see what happens.

Nope, still can't get it. It keeps showing me Think, by her instead, or Crystal's version of Tracy Chapmans song. Crazy! Oh well, maybe after tonight's show it will come up...can only hope. Thanks for all your replies, though.

Ok, when you get to Crystal's song here, look below the video. You can either click on "Filter this playlist by" and choose Siobhan's name OR scroll through the videos directly below that (Siobhan's is the last one with the American Idol logo rather than a picture of the performer).

Hope that helps!

Oh, good grief, even with that link, it shows that song, then quickly takes me back to Think, instead. So I never hear that song but Think. It wants me to download ITunes, and I don't want to do that. I didn't have to do anything with think, it just started playing the first time.

I'm through messing with it. Very frustrated now, so forget it. Thanks for all your help. Getting off here and finishing up the dinner I am making, now.

I had to drive around American Idol film crews at the school today. Look for Barnstable High School to appear in upcoming weeks.

On Friday, a site with avid viewers (not the official AI site) asked "Who is the least deserving to be in the top 12?" The percentages may be a fairly good indicator of who might be in the top 4-6. Take particular note, that Siobhan received the fewest votes (which is a good thing) out of all of them! Just remember to continue to vote for her and use DialIdol.com if you have a landline.

Who is the least deserving member in the top 12?
Selection Votes

Aaron Kelly 12% 687
Andrew Garcia 10% 540
Casey James 1% 54
Crystal Bowersox 1% 73
Didi Benami 3% 159
Katie Stevens 13% 728
Lacey Brown 8% 452
Lee DeWyze 1% 73
Michael Lynche 1% 58
Paige Miles 24% 1,365
Siobhan Magnus 1% 50
Tim Urban 24% 1,351

Wow - Aaron Kelly? Really? I thought he should have gone home last week instead of my beloved Alex Lambert. The power of the teeny bopper vote should not be underestimated!

It would appear a lot of people are not happy Alex left so early. Check out this petition to bring him back! Over 11,000 signatures already! And yes, you are right. The tweens know how to text like crazy.

I concur. I've literally gotten 100 votes in for her in 30 minutes. I have to work a double tomorrow so I can't keep this pace till midnight. Someone has to pick up my slack :-) If she wasn't deserving of votes, I wouldn't advocate for her. She has a good chance to go VERY far providing people vote.
She could be the dark horse :-) Let's see her through gals!
