let the girls sing!...

By all spoiler accounts, it's not going to be a good night for the girls, but, since we don't always agree with the judges, we'll be the judge of that.

It's time to criticize, condemn, crucify or cackle about the remaining 10 girls and their 70s songs.

It's an open thread, and I'll be back tomorrow afternoon with my assessment.

Have at it...

Sorry Dave, The girls are not better than the guys - I would love to see 4 girls go home tomorrow night -- Ithought they were terrible tonight - just my opinion - I usually agree with ya Dave.

Amanda "Cruella Deville" Overmeyer was so horrible I felt sorry for her. Kady and the girl from Tulsa were also just terrible. I couldn't believe how restrained Simon's critiques were of them. He was MUCH harsher on the guys last night than he was to the girls, even when they really deserved it.

You're right about tonight, Connie. After three strong performances to open the show, the girls all went down hill (and fast!). I think the field this year is level.

Aside from a couple of TCOs, I think it's wide open.

Connie, Dave(after 2nd comment), I couldn't agree more! The girls sucked tonight! And instead of 2 going home tomorrow (or 4 as Connie suggests), I think 6 should and we should have 8 guys and 4 girls.

Tonight's show just got worse and worse as it progressed. Carly did well, and although Brooke's song was an exact replica of the original, she sang it well. Everyone else bombed! I was going to make my comments about the girls' performances tomorrow, but seeing as I'm so riled up, I think I will right now!

Asia'h and Alexandrea - Randy and Paula need to JUST STOP! They can keep raving about these two girls as much as they want! I think they both sucked tonight AND last week. I don't think they are as good as the judges think, and especially not as good as they think of themselves. And I'm sorry, but they totally wasted the pimp spot on a poor performance!

Amanda - Another one that technically can't sing! She butchered Kansas and her song last week wasn't great either. But I can't say much for the song. I saw Kansas 2 years ago in concert and they sucked. I had to wait through 2 hours of miserable music just to hear Carry On and Dust in the Wind. But thats another story. Considering Amanda was in the bottom 3 last week, I think we'll be saying goodbye to her tomorrow.

Kady- This poor girl can't catch a break. She's super pretty, she does do GREAT interviews, but then she gets on stage and she sucks. Well, I didn't think she was that bad tonight, but she really hasn't done well. I bet if she was famous like Paris Hilton, or that stupid girl from the Hills, she could make an album and it would make her big bucks. But sorry, she's no good live.

Alaina and Kristy Lee - If I had to choose only one of the pretty blondes to make it, I would choose Alaina. But like Simon said, if Kristy Lee went country, she could improve as an artist. They both weren't incredibly bad, but I remember them both doing better before the semi-finals started.

Ramiele and Syesha - I REALLY like these 2 girls. They are probably my two favorite girls in the whole competition. Unfortunately, they didn't do so well tonight. I think Syesha's mistake was changing the song TOO much. Ramiele was just off. Maybe America will know that they are normally really good singers and keep them around. I will be sad if they get cut!

Brooke - Like I said, her song was too much like the original, but I thought it was completely her style. The guitar was perfect cos it wasn't overdone. I have to say, I was impressed, not overly, but I liked it. BTW, she did a nice job on that guy's hair!

Carly - I was kind of over this girl after last week. But after tonight's performance, I realized why I liked her in the first place! She is who she is, and she's an incredible singer.

Ok, so overall, I was very disappointed with tonight's show. I thought it was going to be much better than the guy's last night, and it ended up turning out worse. Is next week 80s music? If so, they BETTER do well. It's my FAVORITE!!!

OMG, I thought Amanda looked like Cruella DeVille too!! And Alexandrea looked like she was going to sing hip hop to Chicago's song!

I liked the girls better. Carly blew everyone out of the water IMO. Amanda was so bad it was awesome! VFTW is having a field day!

You guys are right on about Amanda. She was scary tonight!

I agree with you Sunshine about the girls.

We'll see what happens tomorrow night.

Normally, at least in past years at this stage, the girls far overshadowed the guys. This year, however, the girls are lagging greatly. I keep looking for a potential star like Carrie or Fantasia, yet none of them are even in the same horse race. In fact, I can think if three girls on America's Got Talent that are better than any of these.

So far, Adam Archeleta has far outpaced anyone else on the show. Far, far outpaced. He seems actually to get energized by an audience; an audience causes him to reach heights any of these other 19 can only dream about. By contrast, everyone else seems to be intimidated by this competitive environment.

I agree that "DAVID" Archuleta was better than any of the other 19.. by a mile.. the girls tonight were very off.. none were terribly bad but none had the "wow" factor as the judges like to harp on..

It's hard to pick the worst although Alaina and Amanda were very very lackluster..

I'd say Kady and Asia'h were next in bad performances.. I agree Kady did much better in her interviews.. she is an awesome opera singer.. my partner said she may be too much like Brittany who she likes to imitate in that she doesn't seem like she could take direction very well..(and what's with the girls..a lot of them picked songs that I never heard of and were not suited to them)..

Raniele and Kristy Lee weren't up to my expectations..

I liked Alexandrea and Carly's performances but they also didn't live up to their potentials..

I think the top two were Brooke and Syesha with Brooke being my favorite..

Who do I think is going home.. I know who should be going and it's Amanda and Alaina.. it's painful watching Amanda sing.. I'm sorry but I don't think that she's that good... Kathryn

Most of the girl's have a terrrible fashion instinct. How distracting! And I mean that for more than just Amanda - which was blantantly bad.

I thought the girls were horrid tonight. I can't even begin to think who should go home: all the blondes except Brooke could go home and that'd be fine by me.

My guess is that one of them will, and the other people who could be in danger are Amanda Rocker Nurse or AlexanDrea.

Brooke was by far my favorite of the night.

I was hoping Amanda wouldn't get enough votes to stay on after that horror show last night, BUT according to dialidol, she's at the top of the list....also, VFTW chose her as the one to vote for. So.

I predict the two who will go will be Kady and Alaina (hopefully not Syesha, I'd like her to get another chance)

I think it will be Kady and Alexandréa. However, Amanda, Kristy Lee and Alaina could also be in danger.
