1. I'm pissed
Sabrina was 1000000000 times better than Haley.

I hope someone signs her up, gives her a chance.

Haley suxs and should be voted off. :(

8. WTF?
I have always loved Sundance!! Sanjaya has no place there. He has a decent voice, but he is far from good! I am so pissed!

His performance of "Mustang Sally" last week was fantastic.

I'm shocked. :wtf:

15. They should have people vote contestants off
Edited on Thu Mar-08-07 08:15 PM by Strawman
Rather than vote for their favorite. Especially this early. Voting for 16 different people allows a cluster of joke voters to do what they did tonight. It's unfair and it's cruel. Even that Sanjaya kid who advanced looked embarassed. People are votng for him because he is bad as a joke.

22. That would be harder
Cuz all the people who voted in good faith for someone decent would tend to concur about who was the worst

16. Prediction: Sanjaya's going to build momentum each week, after VFTW
decides to get behind him. Wouldn't surprise me to see him get to the final 6...

17. The probably sing the most recent song cause it's the freshest in their mind
and they don't have to relearn it.

They don't have a week to rehearse or relearn an older choice like they normally would leading up to the competition day.

19. I was going to say
the band probably has a part in it too. They already have to keep up with a bunch of songs, this way makes it easier.

23. One exception that I remember
Latoya London sang "Don't Rain On My Parade" which she had sung for Big Band Night a week or so before.
