'Idol' Sinatra night begins

No one is cooler than Frank Sinatra.

Let's hope the Top 5 don't have old blue eyes spinning with some lame performances.

The show just started and Seacrest points out that there were over 100,000 potential contestants. And this was the best we could do this season?

Love, love, love that Harry Connick, Jr. said "This is American Idol"

Let's go.

    Anthony Hopkins is one of the veteran actors in Hollywood that should be given a lifetime acheivement award.""

    IMHO it should have been Casey that received least recognition – votes – as his performance was least effective. Young Aaron was improving consistantly and has a great future. However, Crystal is my number 1, 2, 3 and 4 favorite – sorry Lee you are very good however Crystal is the Idol this year.

    I didn't think any of them understood Frank Sinatra's songs although Harry did as best he could with the talent at hand. My best bet was Big Mike. He at least showed some emotion. I guess this generation doesn't understand romantic ballads.

    Crystal sucks, both visually and musically!

    If it's about who will sell the most records. Lee will be the most current and will do really well in the studio. Casey will be a lead guitarist for a band and sing backup vocals. Crystal will be great singing Janis Joplin and Melissa Ethridge type tunes and will be second to Lee in records sold. Mike will get a contract with WWE Wrestlemania. Aaron,"hmmm",I guess their will be a spot on the next high school musical for him followed by a possible country music career after his balls drop....

    Great job Harry on the arrangements. All of the contestants did very well but Lee was the best of the evening. This was by far my favorite show of the season.

    I think Big Mike was the best tonight, and they can't seem to give him his dues. Lee is not that talented and certainly cant sing as well as Mike. Lee is not a fresh talent because we have had those like him for the past three seasons. They obviously get together before the show and decide who they will put down to sway the vote. He would be another non Idol like last years winner. I am glad this show is going off the air.

    I think that Harry making the arrangements is going to hopefully add a significant improvement to their performances!

    I adore Harry, he is so full of personality and I am really hoping he can liven them up some.
    (I saw Anthony Hopkins in the audience too)
