She claimed to be a model/actress, so I guess she'll be making money from a web site pretty soon.

Pics from the first day of the Hollywood round, including some folks who did not get any air time:

Group pic of all 147 ticket holders:

Tatiana, in a little black dress at the front of the stage (as the pic’s caption states, a “true Drama Queen”):
http://www.americanidol.com/photos/s..._week_1/39818/

Emily singing No Doubt (again, a last-minute change of song choice; she had planned to sing “I Put A Spell On You”):
http://www.americanidol.com/photos/s..._week_1/39819/

The Fantastic Four debating competitors’ fates:
http://www.americanidol.com/photos/s..._week_1/39824/

Educated guess that this pic is of Megan Corkrey:

Katrina in her trash bag:
http://www.americanidol.com/photos/s..._week_1/39831/

Jessica Furney (I am still a bit disappointed she missed the first cut):

Pics from group day, including some folks who did not get any air time:

Stevie Wright (as good as she is, I am surprised she has not been seen on TV perfoming since her Phoenix audition):

Danny, Jamar and Taylor:
http://www.americanidol.com/photos/s...rmances/39869/

Joanna (?) doing her solo:
http://www.americanidol.com/photos/s...rmances/39873/

I could not identify any of the folks pictured here (except for Alexis Grace on the far right), but they looked like they were having fun:

Alexis singing her solo:
http://www.americanidol.com/photos/s...rmances/39881/

Katrina doing her solo while Jasmine and Rose sing backup:
http://www.americanidol.com/photos/s...rmances/39884/

Not sure who this girl is, but she caught my eye because of the short shorts (is she channeling Haley Scarnato?):
http://www.americanidol.com/photos/s...rmances/39890/

I think this is Felicia Barton:

I thought everyone knows that the Hollywood round is when there is the least amount of singing. That's why historically the ratings suffer during Hollywood and in years past they've condensed it to one week (Tues - initial/group, Wed - final chance and separate contestants into rooms, thurs- the stupid show where it's all about the elevator and the long walk down the hall to find out if you got into the voting round).

You should have started your son with the beginning of the voting round. There will be singing and he can even vote for his favorite!

Besides the Bikini Girl stuff, the worst thing about the show from a family-friendly point of view in my book is the homophobia. You know, the Seacrest-Simon banter, which has been the subject of controversy from LGBT groups, and rightfully so.

If I were a parent, I wouldn't want my kid to have some deep rooted sense of homophobia where he/she would think it is an insult to call someone "gay." (or that gay can somehow be an insult, rather than a simple description).

Am I the only one who didn't think bikini girl was remotly hot? The only thing she had going for her was she was thin. She had nothing up top, and a flat behind, and her face wasn't much to look at either.

There is no way this girl would have made playboy if not for being an American Idol contestant. She is no more hot than someone like Paris Hilton, who aint hot.

Maybe in a room of average-looking women she'd be attractive. She isn't "television" hot.

I didn't think she was hot either. Her type is a dime a dozen (if you're willing to throw good money away).

Agreed, if she was sitting in the cube next to mine, I would probably say she's hot. If I were very wealthy and looking for some eye candy, I would certainly pass on her, or at least pony up for some implants

Speaking of hot, Kara looked awesome with her hair up tonight. Yummay.

I also can't wait until Tatiana Del Toro is voted off. Or hit by a bus. Which ever comes first. Please soon.

My apologies for not being able to post immediately after last night’s show; my ISP had network issues.

I was not too surprised by Michael Castro and India Morrison getting the ax, but Leneshe Young’s dismissal surprised me, given that she IMO put on a pretty good performance. Joanna Pacitti and Casey Carlson were a bit shaky, but I still think they are possibilities for the top 36.

Nick/Norman/Whatshisname, if nothing else, is quite the showman. If he does not make it on AI, he would be very good as a comedian. And, sometimes I wonder what’s inside Tatiana’s head; she’s quite a drama queen (you're not the only one who dislikes her, rustycruiser).

I can predict with a good bit of confidence that this year’s top 5 will come from among this group: Adam, Danny, Anoop, Scott, Stevie, Mishavonna (her performance last night was so stunning), Joanna, Casey, Anne Marie, Michael Sarver and Nathaniel.

Our top 36 will be revealed in a two-hour show tonight; you can bet I’ll be looking forward to it.

From the clips they showed, it sure looks like the men are much stronger/better singers this year. I was blown away by a lot of them male singers and underwhelmed by the female singers.

I am so glad the funny guy made it so far. He has a good voice and he provides humor, why not let him through. Everyone laughs and he sounds good. Sounds like a good combination to me.

I'm thinking most viewers *do* dislike her. I hope they don't put her through tonight, just to add to the PITA factor for next week.

As O'Reilly would say: "You need a better television set" She' was way hotter then PH if nothing else she's a brunette And even Kara said that she has a nice butt. But if she's not your thing it's all good, and I'm sure you got a better looking one at home, right?

If your talking pure talent Tatiana does seem to have one of the better voices among the girls. I agree with WilliamR the guys seem to have much stronger voices this year. I am glad they are finally doing something with the Elevator (now stairwell) walk this year. I was thinking just how pointless that part of the show is if they already decided by splitting the performers into rooms.

I tend to wonder if other outside factors influence cuts at this stage of the contest. Those with potential or real baggage may have that influence their voices, which is why maybe some good singers leave before the real scrutiny begins and those who failed at the last singing phase stay on. I am sure the judges have that data and that heavily edited choosing deep into the night stuff includes other criteria we do not see.

My fiance' and I both think that Simon has other plans for Lenesha. Methinks she got a record deal somewhere the same day she was axed. Joanna needs to be flushed. She's not even a medium plant. She needs to go into a corner and find another career.

my Panny plasma is just fine. And in actuality, I have done pretty well for myself with the one I have at home and she is certainly hotter than bikini girl. And no, I am not posting pics.

I saw Kara say she had a nice butt, and then they did a close up of it and there was nothing there.

It didn't look familiar to me, but it sure looked beautiful. At least, it looked much more open than the "elevator of doom" from previous seasons.

So, who made it? Nearly all of my favorites so far-Danny, Adam, Joanna, Stevie, Anne Marie, Mishavonna to name a few-plus dark horses Jackie Tohn and Jesse Langseth, plus the two class clowns-Nick Mitchell and Tatiana Del Toro. (Tatiana is in the first group of 12 semifinalists that will perform for viewer votes next Tuesday-remind me to get ear plugs for that day so I can use them when she is on.) I will try to find a complete list of the top 36 so I can post a link to it in the near future.

And who did not? Cody the horror film maker (IMO he sang better than Alex), Frankie Jordan, Jamar Rogers (Danny's BFF)...and Felicia Barton, who I thought had a shot at the top 6.

It was available two weeks ago, but spoilers are a no-no. Now, that it's been announced on the show...

IMHO, they should've sent that annoying (even more so than Tatiana) plant Joanna home and kept that cute blonde!
