'American Idol' loses another one

SPOILER ALERT – Tonight's "Idol" blog will reveal who is leaving the competition, so please don't read if you don't want to know.

What a graceful exit.

I like it when the contestants can leave on a high note like tonight, performing, dancing around and receiving love from folks.

Even though I totally called the bottom three this week and who would be leaving us, it's still tough for me to say goodbye. And judging by the tears on stage every week, my feelings are shared.

This marks the first week we have lost a male contestant as Paul has been eliminated.  I'm going to miss his incredibly bright smile and colorful suits. Who is next to go, do you think?

Any ideas, guesses or predictions? Let us know.

    BIG MISTAKE. Stephano is the charmer.. cute and talented...... Diva is the one that should be going home,,,, can't stand his screaming and his Aretha pose.
    Let send her home..... I'm mourning for Stephano

    I am so glad that whimpy Rod Stewart wannabe Paul is gone! What a freakin stooge! But once again – this is undoudtably the ABSOLUTE worst crop of contestants in the history of AI. I dare anyone to tell me who on this year's show is as good as even any runner ups from previous years? David Archuleta – no. Jennifer Hudson – no. Daughtry – no. Katheryn McPhee – no. Ain't there folks. And Randy Jackson is as rediculous and soft as he possibly can be. He is NOT sitting in Simon's seat- he's sitting in Paula's seat! "Dawg, dude, what up? I played bass with Journey dawg and you rock! Dawg is in it to win it." What freakin ever. The ONLY breath of fresh air with any real cristism is Jimmy Iovine – and that's because, like Simon, he is a RECORD PRODUCER. Not a washed up bass player, or a diva singer or a whacked out rock singer (still love you though Steven!). As always I challenge any of you to debate my wisdom – and not any of you 15 year old girls – but anyone who actually knows music and talent – bring it on!

    I feel that Scotty will win. Can't imagine anyone questioning his talent! The idols who "screams" their song aren't necessarily good, they just scream the loudest, and scream does not TALENT make. He is solid talent and like Carry Underwood, will endure! Way to go Scotty!!!

    I really liked Paul, but it was time for him to go. Next should be Stefano. Then probably Lauren or Scotty. Y'all are crazy if you think Haley should go. She has an unbelievable voice – especially when she sings jazz. Not many people can scat like that.

    I didn't think Paul was that good of a singer but I'll miss him! His performances cheered me up. Didn't think I'd like Casey but I find myself watching his last 2 performances over and over again! Glad him and Haley are still in the running!

    Sorry to see Paul go since he was so fun to watch but at least he showed class and maturity at the end.

    I hope Scotty goes next. He is so painful to watch and listen to. Whats up with the corny faces he makes and moving his eyebrows up and down ? Do country music lovers like that ? It creeps me out...

    Jacob should go next because he's just TOO dramatic and his comments were uncalled for. I agree that it was awesome
    to have Jimmy reprimand him. He's just too thrilled with himself.

    Scotty has a great voice, but is too one-dimensional. I think James is really good and he proved it when he sang a
    quieter song. Casey, I just don't get, and don't know WHY the judges think he's so wonderful, Stefano is adorable and
    has such a nice manner, but I don't think he has a chance of winning. Who knows..this is a talented group. Lauren
    is good, Haley is okay, it's anyone's guess.

    Jacob is not likable...(watching Jimmy hand him a piece of humble pie on Wednesday was AWESOME) that's why he should go next. Lauren is likable...She will only get better!
    If Scotty were anymore stuck on himself...his head is way too big for his age. I can't even watch him sing, he's making such an ass of himself. Nashville will eat him alive.
    James' screams are soooooo overdue for an exit.
    Hayley can totally sing. She's just missing the last bit of likability....she's come a long way though...
    Casey shouldn't be on the show. Not because he can't sing or isn' t talented...but because his vibe isn't American Idol....

    Just my two cents 🙂

    I really like Scotty so I hope he stays, and James is amazing. It's so hard to choose this year because they are all SO MUCH BETTER than the people we saw last year. But I think it's either Stephano, who incidentally seems to have improved a great deal, Haley, who is better but just doesn't quite measure up to the others, or Jacob, because he preaches. I love the show this year – much better than before.

    I* am hoping Casey goes soon.....I just don't care for his style..Jacob may go next then Hailey...Stefano will stay as long as all the teenage girls keep voting for him.

      Casey has raw talent – something that you obviously know nothing about. He deserves a place in the finals.

    WHY WHY WHY I say again, are people even HINTING at Jacob going sometime soon??Cmon folks, Jacob is CLEARLY the greatest singer out there. So, what are the issues?? Yes, Haley and Stefano are next to go. And, whats the fascination with Lauren? She is an AVERAGE SINGER. Now that Pia is gone, Jacob is sure to win!!!

    I will miss the Tourette's kid. Next week Casey grunts so hard he shoots a turd at randy, while the big-headed kid with the deep voice stretches for a second note.

    I'm having a hard time predicting the overall winner. Shouldn't be Scotty though as he just imitates country singers. I call him "Parrot Boy". His swagger drives me nuts. Get over yourself, Scotty. You're 16.

    Stephano should not go! It should be Casey, up against Hailey you could see he was the weaker link. Better yet, Scotty who looks like he's taking a poo when he sings! Plus he holds his microphone like a flute..what is up with that guy?? i spose Jacob would be a good one to go too!!

    Yep, I called it too. I like Paul and think someone will grab him up with a contract. He has a really unique voice but the winner was not to be.

      I am so glad Paul finally is gone, he irritated the heck out of me with his Rod Stewart imitation. What I have realized though from reading others comments is that I am old school, grew up with the original, whereas young people today may have never heard Stewart before so to them this is unique and special. But is poor imitation of voice and swagger just never passed the mustard, nothing unique or original in my book. Go to youtube and check out the original in the older clips. You might see what I mean.

    It's going to be Scotty, James and probably Lauren for the top three sadly.

    Stephano needs to go.........very boring guy. This year has been the best selection, no doubt about it and I credit that to Jennifer and Stephen. Randy is great but Jennifer and Stephen have made a major improvement to the selection. I think it will now come down to Scottie and Lauren.........and I think Lauren will win......

      Kay, Are you watching the same show I am?? Jacob is the most magnificent singer out there! If you think Jacob is "next to go", does that mean you think the likes of Haley, Stefano and Lauren are better singers than him???

      Next to go is a toss up between Jacob and Stefano. Jacob is a gospel singer, and a decent one. His flamboyant ways are sickening though. Stefano should have been gone a while ago – well before Pia. Don't look for Haley to leave just yet. Her duet with Casey last night showed why Casey's weeks on the show are numbered as well. He too should have gone before Pia. If Paul could sing Rod Stewart every week he would have made it much closer to the finals. Other than that though, his departure was overdue.
