It's movie night for 'Idol's' Top 8

The photo above has absolutely nothing to do with this week's "American Idol" performance show, but I just love seeing punk icon Iggy Pop rock out with some of the contestants.

The Top 8 will perform songs from movies on Wednesday night, and I am guessing that we are going to hear lots of swelling ballads.

I'm still not over the elimination last week of Pia and the pressure is now on the remaining two ladies in the competition, Haley and Lauren.

I don't know "Idol"-ators. It's not looking good for us to have a female "American Idol" this year.  But does it even matter? Will you continue watching now that one of this year's strongest singers has been voted off?

    I just hope Scotty goes soon. His "good old country boy" thing is so fake! I can't believe people so quickly forgot what a snake he was during the audition episodes.

    Besides, he looks like Alfred E. Neuman with Down's Syndrome.

    About Pia...Yes she was a very good singer. But every wk, someone has to be eliminated. Just happened that her time was up. She wont be easily forgotten. Shell be on the Top 11 Summer Tour, so well all see her again real soon. Let it go already! Yes its sad that she got voted off, but shell do real good in due time. For all we know, she may have already been offered something. Lets move on now. Someones going home every wk until we pick a winner. Cant sit around crying over everyone. Lets pick a winner!

    I agree. Why were the judges so shocked? The top 9 are all pretty good. I think that the bottom three were definetly the worst three. I think the big bladk dude that looks like the grinch and acts like a drag queen will go bext. Hope so; I cannot stand to watch him sing; he looks like he is getting a rod stuck up his butt.

    You got that right, Allstate. I actually would have preferred Stefano get voted out when they voted out Casey. You know they would not use the judges save on that one and he wouldn't be part of the Idol tour. But Pia did become a snoozefest and then when she tried to pick it up, you can see why she didn't move around the stage in the past...she's stiff as a board and her outfit didn't help. Anyway, yes, Stefano has to go! Wish we could vote for who we want out!

      I agree, Paul is terrible as well as Casey. America had it correct a few weeks ago on him. Can we vote Pia back and get rid of these 2?

    Looks like the men are better this year, I hope to see both the women gone next not because they are women but because the men are better this year. It will only hurt when I have to start deciding between them,,,,,,good luck boys!

    I'm still elated over the timely departure of Pia. I don't think I could have taken another week of her boring ballads and the judges telling her she can do no wrong. Next? Stephano has to go. He was worse than Pia last week, but I wanted Pia to go so bad I didn't mind Stephano staying on one more week.

    I watched some of a younger Pia on youtube last night. She sang good, but she really wasn't connecting with the song(s). It just seemed very mechanical. No passion.

    Honestly, I don't understand the big deal about Pia as well. She has a nice voice, but there was little passion, little stage presence, and whoever was dressing her for her performances wasn't doing her any favors at all. I really don't understand the uproar.

    EXCUSE ME, Pia was voted off ! Get over it! Did you vote for her, I didn't. She has a nice voice, but she nearly put me to sleep! Don't blame the teens for this, either. You can vote just as much as the teens. I'm so sick of hearing about bore, little, boring Pia. I thought some1 else would go b4 her, but I knew she would go. Done, over, bye bye Pia!!

    No. She took a huge dump on stage recently. There is nothing wrong with taking a big dump once in a while.

    Ok look. They moved her to the back because she likes to take dumps on stage.
